States: Indiana: Decatur
I am trying to find information on subject ancesters, who were born in New Point, or Newspoint, Indiana. My family's information says that Sylvester was born Feb. 4, 1838, in New Point, Decater Co., Ind., of William and Hester Glidewell. Mary Elizabeth Pullen, Sylvester's wife, was born April 11, 1840, in Newspoint, Ind., of James and Miranda Pullen, who were from France. Sylvester and Mary Elizabeth were married December 31, 1865 in Indiana. They later moved to Hazeldell, Illinois.
I assume that both Sylvester and Mary Elizabeth were born in the same Indiana town, and that it is either New Point or Newspoint, not that there were two different places with those names.
I have not been able to find either town name on current maps, nor any mention of them so far in historical records. If anyone has info on those locations, or more details about particularly Sylvester Glidewell's ancestors, I'd love to hear from you. Charis.
