The Bench and Bar of Saratoga County, Or, Reminiscences of the Judiciary, and Scenes in the Court Room: From the Organization of the County to the Present Time
The Bench and Bar of Saratoga County addresses the county where Solomon Northup lived before and after his kidnapping. It includes mention of the fact that a case against Merrill and Russell, the suspected kidnappers of Northup, was dismissed due to another disappearance of Northup. It is unknown exactly how or when Northup died. Some, like this author, suspect he was kidnapped again, but other scholars disagree with that notion because Northup, by that time, would be too old to be of much use to slaveholders.
