Sylvester Northup was born the child of Henry Northup and Mary (Eldred) in 1729-1740 in Providence, RI.

AUTHOR'S NOTE: I have had some reports that his Father, Henry was married to Mary Cary and had one son Immanuel, but the evidence suggests the Immanuel mentioned is really the son of Henry and Mary Kingsley, who would be this Henry's Uncle. Some credit Henry as having been married 1st to Hopestill Smith. I totally discount this notion, but the ages of Henry and his wife Mary when the first son, Joseph, was born suggest that they both may have been married previously. Mary would have been abt 43 years old when Sylvester was born.
