* The 1900 census shows that Arminda Noel was born in April 1844 in Illinois with both parents being born in Ohio. This discrepancy can be reconciled by the fact that Nicholas, John, Peter and Philip, the sons of John and Margaret Noel and grandsons of Joseph Noel, from Europe, who settled in what is now Adams County, Pennsylvania, moved to Hampshire County, Virginia (now W.Va.) prior to 1790. If so then the census was correct stating that he was from Virgina. All these families except one moved to Ohio, so by 1900 they may have forgot that John was born in (West) Virgina. However the death certificate for Arminda Shepard states that her father John Noel was born in England and that the mothers maiden name was spelled as Tryal. I would put more weight on the earliest census but the birth place of John Noel is still open. DN

Burial Trial Cemetery Peoria County Illinois, USA1986 News clip courtesy of Lori Sue Trial Mosteller... "TRIAL CEMETERY HAS A NEW LOOK "By Jay Johnson.... "Indians", as we often refer to those early Native Americans, at one time had control of all the land. It was sometime after the turn of the century in 1800 that John Trial, an early settler, bought a number of acres from the local Indians-likely from a member tribe of the Illini Confederation. The Trial family was joined through marriage with that of John Noel, who had also obtained acreage from the Indians. His land became the site of the Illinois Insane Asylum. The Trial cemetery on South LaFayette is a remnant of that early farmstead and a link with the past. Rather than be forgotten, the final resting place of those early folks has recently received a face lift. Jack Hertter of Bartonville has been volunteering his time for the last 5 years to bring "new life" to the old plots. Other volunteers have helped to put in a new fence around the property, straighten the monuments, keep the grass cut and add a new sign to identify the cemetery. A special thanks is extended to Bob and Edna Medford of East Peoria and to Isabel Braden of Pekin for their contributing efforts. For any who wish to help out either financially or work wise please contact Jack Hertter. The comment was made that "it's the best that cemetery has looked in 40 years." - L E Lawrence
