Val-de-Villé, Bas Rhin
From a French Film entitled 5MI507
sent by Jean-Louis Rose and translated by Wayne Strasbaugh
Concerning a Joseph Noel, a vine grower, who fits the Joseph on the Princes Augusta and also some Strasbachs:
Unless I mistake his notes, Joseph would have had to have had a third wife on our side of the Atlantic. His first wife died in 1718 and his second in 1732. He also seems to believe that this Joseph came from Liepvre in Haut Rhin, which appears to be just over the mountain from Ville. I never recall looking at its records, nor those of Rombach-le-Franc (which he mentions and is also in Haut Rhin near Liepvre).
The Strasbach material is interesting. There appears to be a big nest of Strasbachs in Colroy-la-Grande. Yet another FHL film we should examine. It would be meaningful if we could find some links between the surnames there and the ones in Saulxures. However, I don't see how the younger Nicholas listed in these records could be the one who married Catherine Gerard in Saulxures. By my reckoning, he would have been only 16 in January 1718. That seems too young for marriage.

1. Baptêmes, mariages, sépultures 1601-1666 Baptêmes 1680-1727 - FHL INTL Film [ 1069743 ]
Those in Blue added by D E Noel on 04-29-2010 FHL INTL Film 1069743 1601 - 1727.
The records are from the early spelling of the town of Uerbeis later spelled Orbey and Orbeis.
The 1601 - 1666 records are very hard to read so I did not read them. If necessary I will try later.
The 1680 - 1727 records are in good shape. I have found only the Gerard families. I did not find a birth for Catharina Gerard, 1690-1702. There are only two births in the year 1680 and none are Joseph Noel.
