The Niewold family origins are found in the Groningen area of the Netherlands. Jakob Nieuwold/Niewold and his family left their home there in 1842 to settle in New Holland, Logan County, Illinois. Pioneer life was tough on them causing the death of Jakobs wife Anna in 1848, Anna's mother Klaaske died in 1846, their daughter Clarrissa died in 1851. The Civil war took the life of the youngest boy Theodore in 1862. The older daughter Margaret married, had 5 children and soon died in 1866. The surviving two sons prospered and grew old in New Holland fathering 10 children between them including my grandfather Newton Niewold. My dad, John H. Niewold and his three brothers and one sister were all born there but they soon started moving around the country in search of a new home which they finally found in Sycamore, Dekalb County, IL. in about 1932. Some of the remnants of this family are still here in Sycamore but most have gone the ways of the wind.
