Pierpont Family in Indianapolis, 1922

Polk's 1922 City Directory, Indianapolis, Indiana


Continuing my research into the PIERPONT family in Indianapolis, the 1922 Polk's Directory at Archive.org listed the following PIERPONTs [h=house r=rents].  I have been hoping to find out more about the early years of the Harry Pierpont family.

Pierpont Blance J tel oper r533 N Belmont
Pierpont Clarence M assmblr h1152 Spruce
Pierpont Cora F clk CCC&StLRy r1152 Spruce

Pierpont Perry lab r1116 N Traub av
Pierpont Raymond W finshr r1322 E 24th
Pierpont Wm E pipeftr h533 N Belmont av 

The Blance Pierpont is unidentified, though she resides at the same residence as Helen, Macel and Wm E.

The Clarence M. Pierpont and Cora Pierpont were at the same location as the 1920 city directory, and their relationship to the others has not been indentified.

The Edward L. Pierpont is believed to be the son of John T. and Hester Pierpont, and the younger brother of Harry's father, Joseph Gilbert.  In the 1920 directory, he was living on Minnesota.

The Ezra M. Pierpont is believed to be the son of John T. and Hester Pierpont, and a younger brother of Harry's father, Joseph Gilbert.  In the 1920 directory, he was living at the same place.

The Frank Pierpont is believed to be the son of John T. and Hester Pierpont, and a younger brother of Harry's father, Joseph Gilbert.  In the 1920 directory, he was living on Morris.

The Helen J. Pierpont is unidentified, but she resides at the same residence as Blanche, Macel A and Wm E.

The Macel A. Pierpont is unidentifed, but she resides at the same residence as Blanche, Helen and Wm. E.

The Perry Pierpont is unidentified, but resides at the same residence as Frank Pierpont.  May be his son.

The Raymond Pierpont is unidentified.

The Wm E. Pierpont is unidentified, but resides at the same residence as Blanche, Helen and Macel A.

This directory raises more questions as to why Harry's family was not mentioned.  In the 1920 census, they were located in Ward 14 of Indianapolis and were enumerated January 6th.
