I am hoping that someone might be able to help with a location . . . . This summer while in Fountain County doing some family research, we came upon a statement that read: "the Biggs Homestead in the Barrens." It referred to some area close to the Wabash, and seemed close in proximity to the town of Fountain (was Portland, now Fountain).
Would anyone have any idea where "the Barrens" might be? One person in Veedersburg said most likely Warren County, yet the little blurb that I found seemed to have placed it the other side of the river, in Fountain County.
Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated!
