Would you have any information on a Dr. John and Anna Tuel who appear in the 1850 USFC in Decatur Co., IN with their sons, born in IN as 19 year old David, and 12 Year old Jesse?
David and his wife, Mary Pierce/Pearce, sister of Willis M. Pierce of Adams Twp, Decatur Co., IN, resided in Fugit Twp. per the 1880 USFC.In 1863 they were living in Rush Co.He was a "huckster."They married in either Shelby or Decatur Co. most likely in about 1854-56.
I can find nothing on this couple, or his parents.If his father was a physican (reportedly his parents were born in KY), one would think some record would be raised for him online.Reportedly there was a John Tuel with the Clark Expedition.The name is spelled a variety of ways.
My hunch they must have lived along the county line between Decatur and Rush and perhaps moved back and forth.
Any leads appreciated.Really would like to know if they have a family.
