 I have found Joseph Andrew Noel in North Dakota where he died  September 10, 1919. He was the son of Adam Peter Noel and was born in Davenport, Iowa, March 09, 1840.  Adam was the son of Joseph Noel who was born in York/Adams County PA in about 1777 and came to Westmoreland County PA before 1800 from the Taneytown area of Maryland. While there is no documentation we believe that his father was Blasius Noel the son of Peter Noel who came from Europe with his family at the age of sixteen in 1736. Peter's father was also named Joseph Noel and born in 1680.


Joseph Andrew Noel 1840 - 1919
Joseph died in Stutsman County, North Dakota
1st Wife      Mary M Blessington 1841 - 1916
2nd Wife   Emily B Welsh

J F and W E Noel could be the sons of Joseph however the was another Noel in the

County and not from Iowa and must have been Edward J Noels which could have been
a miss spelling of Knowles.

I have a Viola Noel / Neal who married my Howard McAlister in Harrison County, Iowa in 1875. I wonder if you might have heard of Viola and know of her parents, of have heard from someone who might have information.

I have the marriage record, and it says Viola Noel. Perhaps it was Neal but I can't be sure. Also have a marrage record for a S. Noel to Viola McBird. He is in the 1870 census working for the McBird family, I believe he was age 20, and Viola was age 16.   Joan

The following newspaper clipping just appeared on the Cambria County, PA rootsweb list.  Perhaps it will help some NOEL descendants.
Silver Wedding. (1900)
On Thursday, June 21st, Mr. and Mrs. Joseph A. Noel, of Cambria township, celebrated their silver wedding. A High Mass was said by Rev. Father Ludden, at 7:30 in the morning in honor of the occasion. There were about eighty invited guests who spent the day very pleasantly in different amusements and after a sumptuous dinner and supper had been served, all returned to their homes well pleased with the days' enjoyment. Mr. and Mrs. Noel received many pretty and costly presents. Following are the names of those present: Rev. Father Ludden, Matthew Heitchue and wife, of Johnstown; T.A. Weible and wife, and A. Strittmatter, of Carrolltown; Martin Manion and wife, Peter Noel, father of Joseph A. Noel; John B. Noel and wife, Christina Noel, Mrs. Augustine Strittmatter, J.S. Davis and wife, John R. Davis and wife, E.J. Bennett and wife, J.M. Hughes and wife, George Lytze and wife, Lawrence Weimer and wife, Joseph Urda and wife, Joseph Skelly and wife, John Stibolitzki and wife, John!  Long and wife, James Scanlan and wife, W.D.

Miss Pauline Doyle, aged 21 years, died last evening at 7:40 o’clock at the
home of her aunt, Mrs. Frank Noel of North Irwin, after a two month illness
from heart trouble. She had resided here for the past three years, coming
to Irwin from Seward following the death of her father, Edward Doyle.
Surviving are her mother, Mrs. Tressa Doyle, housekeeper at the Immaculate
Conception parish house, and ten brothers and sisters: James Doyle, Mrs.
Mildred Taylor, Leo Doyle and Thomas Doyle of Seward, Frank Doyle and Mrs.
Augusta Neu of Pittsburgh, Mrs. Elizabeth Lidwell and Mary Doyle of
Detroit, Sister Thomasine of Pittsburgh and Sister Emmanuel of Ambridge.
Funeral services will be held Saturday morning at nine o’clock in the
Immaculate Conception church. Interment will be made in the Seward
Republican Standard & Westmoreland Journal
2 June 1933
Pauline and her mother, Theresa McDonald DOYLE, had gone to Irwin to work and
live with Theresa's sister. I have been looking for that sister for three
years and finally have a name -- Mrs. Frank NOEL.
1910-1920-1930 N. Irwin Borough census reveal:
Frank C. NOEL  Birth: abt 1875, PA  Occ: Plumber, independent
Spouse: Elizabeth M. McDONALD Birth: abt 1876, England
Children: Margaret E. (~1897-)
Mildred M. (~1901-)
Mary Elizabeth (~1903-)
Francis W. (~1906-)
James Wayne (~1908-)
Thelma V. (~1913-)
Elizabeth's birth in England, age and naturalization in 1887 match nicely with the MCDONALD siblings that I have found so far. I need some help in tracing this family forward. Does anyone have a directory that could do a look up for me? I had previously contacted Immaculate Conception Church but got little help there. Does anyone know of complete cemetery listings for Immaculate Conception Church cemetery, or the others in Irwin? Frank was a plumber -- perhaps someone remembers him? Any help or suggestions would be most appreciated!

Dear Mr. ___:

You certainly must have come across a very old Genealogical Helper, and as much as I can understand from your letter, you must want some PAGE information from me. I advertised for parents of JOHN PAGE (came from King & Queen Co., Va.) 1742 to Goochland in December, buying land next to his brother ROBERT PAGE, who preceded him in August, 1742, but whose first purchase deed shows Robert Page of Goochland County, instead of King & Queen Co. for some inexplicable reason. I have seen the very old, large ledgers and they are the first PAGES recorded. Now they did not belong to the one wealthy JOHN PAGE family that is the only one written up anywhere. There are magnificent linen backed charts of the same
family, plus one who settled in New England, in the Library of Congress&.but no record of any other PAGES. Above Robert bought 1540 acres and John, 100 acres. From the ages of their children they were young married men when they came to Goochland Co., Robert's first wife's name is unknown, only his second. I believe John's only wife was Hannah.

As far as Cornelius Noell or Cornelis Noell, p. 15 of Emigrant Cornelius Noel from Holland to Virginia, and his Descendants in America, compiled by Mary Roberts Noel & Jeannie Noel Weeks, 1977, shows Pedigree Chart from Jacque Noel of Francheval & wife Jeanne Vintier down to JAN NOEL, chr. Feb. 1, 1632 in Leyden or Leiden, So. Holland., married in Virginia to Lydia Perkins. Am enclosing photo copy of page from records of Leiden showing marriage Banns of Jacob Nowels 14 Jan. 1621, saying he was born in Leyden instead of Sedan, Ardennes, France, and bride, Tryntgen Cornelis; also baptism of my ancestor JAN NOEL on 1 Feb., 1632. That was the proof required for my long and tedious journey of two copies of everything legal down to parents marriage license as well as my birth certificate for joining the Hugaenot Society. You are eligible, or perhaps you already belong, for they are PROUD of their Protestant ancestors. I have written to the Archives Departementales Des Ardennes, 10 Rue de la Porte de Bourgogne, 0800 Charleville-Mezieres, France, twice, last September in English, enclosing 2 International Coupons at 65 cents  no answer so in March 1983 tried in French @ $10.00 to translator.

Then they answered, saying the records were not there but at the Bibliotheque de lHistoire du Protestantisme francais, 54 Rue des Saints-Peres, 75007 PARIS. I wrote in May, copying the 1st letter as was in French and finsished off in English a few words I could find in old French grammar...guess I'll have to pay someone else to write the whole thing in French again, although all I asked was their fee IF the records were actually there. I thought people in such an office in Paris would
certainly understand English.

By the way, the above was given because I thought you might be interested in tracing your NOEL ancestors. The man who wrote so promptly from Leiden, Holland, said that TRYNTGEN CORNELIS NOEL was buried in Hooglandsche Kerk, December 6, 1644, and was living on a street, Velderagracht, that remains today. Her husband, JACOB NOEL, was harder
to identify, because first names were not given:
A. Man known only as Noe, buried February 8, 1649, in Pieterskerk, but living on above street.
B. A Nouwel buried June 28, 1656. No place or 1st name.
C. A Jacob Nowe buried January 6, 1655 No Place or 1st name.

Of course, I have the copy of Will of COL. THOMAS PAGE, (March 10, 1676. Prov. May 20 1676.) naming daughters, Elizabeth, who married Cornelius Noel; and among others Mary, who married Valentine Allen, and their son, named as my grandchild, Samuel Allen, my plantation and land belonging to it., etc. This was contested by the husbands of two of his sisters,
Christian and Mary. I believe Samuel, instead of his son, was the father of Susanna Allen, who married March 31, 1719, Hutchins Burton of Herico Co. Valentine Allen emigrated May, 1650, with ____________, John Nicholas Catlett___ their half-brother, Ralph Ronsey, Sittingooarne Parish, Kent Co., England. While I checked marriages and land grants, I did not check Col. Thomas Page on Ship Passenger Lists. Will you answer this: What ship did Tho. Page  A. Taylor  29 who is 29? Who is A. Taylor? Elizabeth - 28 1. Thomas ) 2 are these stated to be children of Page? 2. Kathryn 1

Like my John and Robert Page of Goochland Co., Va., there were tow other brothers later there, of the rich Pages, all families PAGE have to have a John and a Robert...so that was a hard one to unravel. There was a Thomas Page with wife, Elizabeth, in Essex Co., after Col. Thomas Page, although he mentioned no son, Thomas, or did not disown him, so whether he was kin or not I do not know. There has been no evidence of any relationship between Col. Thomas Page and my John and Robert Page&. But here were quite a few PAGES in Essex Co. Now, you know all I know about the PAGES  you descend through his daughter Elizabeth and I through daughter, Mary, so we are 64th cousins or something in that vicinity.

Looking for information on Daniel Noel b: 1859, and Sara Brown b:  1857. Parents of Mary Kathryn Noel b: 4-10-1882, married Charles William Brumbaugh b:7-14-1886.  And Anna M. Noel b: 12-3-1893, married Bruce Barnett. Mary Kathryn and Anna M. were both born at Six Mile Run, Huntingdon County, Pennsylvania.  That puts Daniel Noel and Sara in Huntingdon County 1886-1893. Sorry, don't know the religion.  I know that my husband grew up as a Methodist.  Mary Noel is his grandmother, and is buried in a cemetery in Entriken, Pennsylvania.

According to records at Conewago Chapel, Edgegrove, Pa., Peter Krim/Grim married Christina Noll Feb.25,1800. The Noels acted as sponsors and witnesses at several other Grim marriages & births. Does anyone know who Christina's parents were and what became of her and husband Peter Grim?
The Grims were Roman Catholic. George and Elizabeth Brichner (Breighner) Grimm are my ancestors; stopped at George. Peter Grim, I'm sure, was his brother.  I had thought John Grim shown on the pigeon hill map (K6) on your site was also a brother, but I am beginning to think he was possibly the father. I also suspect this family was from Alsace-Lorraine.

1880 census for Berwick Twp., Adams, Pa. lists David Null (Noel)-59 and wife Rebecca-54. Children: John-22,
Lucy (Chronister)-21 & son Henry Chronister,George-17 and Ella-16.
David Noel, born 1821 was the son of James/Jacob Noel (born 1797 Adams Co.)& Mary (Polly) Strausbaugh
                  (born 1796  Paradise Twp. York).
James/Jacob was the son of John Noel (born 1773) & Philipina Weiss.
John was the son of Peter Noel (born 1750) & Henrietta
Peter was the son of Peter Noel (born 1720 in Europe) & Margaret.

Margaret (Polly) Strausbaugh, wife of James/Jacob Noel was the daughter of
Michael Strausbaugh & Margaretha Brichner(Breighner)- born May 28,1769
Margaretha was the daughter of Gotleib Brichner(Breighner)

Rebecca Gertrude Grim, born Aug.23,1826 was the daughter of JohnGrim (born 1797) & Sarah Sauer.
     John Grim was the son of John Grimm & Catherine Eckenrode (born abt.1762)

David Null and Rebecca are living about 2 doors away from Rebecca's brother Alexius Grim and wife Kate E. Hull in Berwick Twp. Adams, Pa. in 1880.

 I was not able to find a record of a marriage between Michael Strausbaugh & Margaretha Brichner at York Historic Trust.   I did find this entry in my notes taken from the Grim family vital cards at Adams County Historical Society, of Adams County- Marriage, Joseph Noll to Elizabeth Grim, Jan.30,1824.  After doing some investigating on this couple, my best guess is that Joseph Noel was the son of John Noel & Philippina Weis, born July 8,1808. Elizabeth Grim was the daughter of John Grim and Catherine Eckenrode and was born Nov.12,1811.          Perry Brandt

As you know, Ted's wife and I are descended from David Noel's sister  Rebecca (also known as Margaret) Noel who married Benjamin Strasbaugh (her first cousin once removed). There were apparently three other Noel brothers - Henry, John  and Joseph. I  believe Henry married Benjamin's half-sister Catherine.  Much information about James and Mary  Noel is on Ted's
web page http://familytreemaker.genealogy.com/users/v/o/n/Theodore-E-Von-mechow/?Welcome=1052941214

Would be glad to try to answer any questions Perry has.  I have been trying to find a source for Margaret Brichner's marriage to Michael Strasbach and parentage of Mary (Polly). A lot of internet sources say it is so, but I would like to find the original source.

I think one source of confusion to researchers is how Abraham, Jacob and Andrews (the children of James and Mary named in the Conewago records) wound up as David, Henry and Joseph in the probate records. Were there six sons (three dying as infants) or three who used different names?     Wayne

I'm looking for information on Joseph and Martha (Lingenfelter) Noel from Portage, Pa.

Their children are:        Mary, Dorothy, Grace, Joe, Blair, Art, William, George, Albert.

My father-in-law was Blair Noel from East Freedom, Pa. And we are trying to find out family history.

I highly encourgae the DNA testing as Dominic is suggesting also. We have done this with our Smothers group and have 3 separate lines now and found out some wonderful news. Like our long lost 4x grandfather, we now have a really good idea he is connected to the Smither line of PA. My bro matched 12/12 markers with a Smathers in OHIO...so they have upgraded to the 25 marker for add'l matches which cost was just 90. and no add'l swab.

Yes, they started out as Smither/Schmedder/Schmetter, some changed to Smeathers, then some to Smathers and some to Smether and later Smothers...but all are connected, DNA is good proof! And Family TREE DNA in Houston is excellent and wonderful folks and easy to work with, always ready to answer any questions fr the Group Admn or participants or interested folks!

I really am interested in the Noel's as they tie into the Smither line which could connect to our Pa Smither's. Its certainly well worthwhile and what we found out is if someone was having any problem with the funds, we chipped in and helped, being females, we figured that was a good contribution for us since we can't do the testing.
If you would like to ck out our DNA site just to see how it works go here:

This is why I am interested in the Noel's...and if anyone is connected to any of the Smither's listed in this line, please get in touch with me to compare notes. Thanks kindly, Nena Smothers

The Andrew Noel who married Cecelia Byrne is one of the NOEL descendants of Joseph Noel.  If their descendants were known, the males would be excellent candidates for Dominic's DNA project.  Andrew was the only surviving son of
William Noel [ca 1801-1882] and his 1st wife Anna Emily Willson.  William was the son of Andrew Noel Jr/Elizabeth Walter.  Andrew Jr was the son of Andrew Noel Sr./Teresa Dillon.  Andrew Sr was the son of Johannes Noel/Margaret Unknown.
Johannes was one of the sons of Joseph Noel.   I sure hope that a NOEL DNA project does get going.

Kathy, if you would like the information I have found on Andrew William Noel [ca 1836-40 to aft 1910] and Cecelia Byrne, I would be happy to share it with you -- not that it is as complete as I would like to have it.   I am a descendant of Andrew's half sister Sarah Noel/John George Glass and am working to fill in the blanks on all of William Noel's children, but there's much left to discover.  Andrew/Cecelia had at least one son -- Walter Noel [ca 1876 to aft 1910].  Walter was married to a woman named Amy and they had at least one son, Eugene Noel, b ca 1910.  Walter/Amy lived in Altoona in 1910, immediately next
door to Andrew [a widower] and an unmarried daughter plus a married daughter/husband/child.   If you'd like my info, let me know.              Carol Vass

Name: Clement NOEL   Sex: M   Birth:  ca 1804, Place unknown, probably Harbour Grace or Freshwater,Nfld,Canada maybe Jersey CI
Marriage 1 Mary SHEPPARD b: 24 Oct 1805 in Harbor Grace,Newfoundland
Married: 20 May 1825 in St Paul's Anglican Church,Harbor Grace, NFLD

A lot of Clement Noels seem to originally come from St.Martin, Jersey where first son was typically named Clement. This is
consistent with oral history.

Cornelius Noel was born November 8, 1623, christened in Hooglandse Church, Leiden, S. Holland.  Cornelius Noel was the second son to be named Cornelius as his older brother, Cornelius died as an infant.

Land located in Essex County, VA is Occupacia Creek which still has its Indian name.  This particular creek has been called by
many names, usually the name was changed when the ownership of the land changed, and it was on this creek that our
CORNELIUS NOEL  was given a Grant of Land when he came into America. This land-grant is located on Occupacia Creek about 4 miles inland from the Rappahannock River in Essex Co., VA.  He received this land 25 September 1665. (see copy of original Patent made to him).

7 November 1666  "Whereas Cornelius Noel has lived in this County Servant and Freeman and of the Reformed Religion and has taken up land with a full resolution to make his constant abode in this County and to remain himself as a true and factful servant towards his Majesty and his Liege people hath petitioned he might be admitted a Denizen (inhabitant) of this County.  It is by the Governor Council and Burgesses of this Grand Assembly Granted or ordered that said Cornelius Noel be made a free Denizen----"
Journal of the House of Burgesses of Virginia 1659-60-1693
H.R.M. Ilvaine      page 43

While living in Essex Co. in Occupacia Creek, VA, he received his Naturalization Papers from Francis Lord Howard, Governor of VA 27 April 1686.

Again in 1692, he received a grant for 250 acres of land for transportation of five people into Essex County, Virginia.

 hile transcribing the Revolutionary War pension file of John Platt I came across some testimony of Nicholas Noel.
John Platt lost his discharge papers & proved with the help of family & neighbors that he served in the war.

Here is some info that will help in determining some dates mentioned in Noel's afidavit:
In his own testimony, John said he moved from Adams Co to Cambria Co PA in 1801 or 1802.
There is documentation that John Platt resided in Adams Co PA as late as June or July 1801.

Noels just keep cropping up,
this day personally appeared before me Michael Leary a justice of the peace in and for said county, Nicholas Noel aged seventy nine years on the first of October next, a person of credibility, who has been duly sworn on his oath says that he has
been acquainted since before the revolutionary war with John Platt now of Cambria County, and a very old man. He first knew said Platt in York county now Adams county Pa and since he Platt came to this Cambria, This affiant recollects the evolutionary war and distinctly remembers that it was then publicly said and in the mouths of all; that the said John Platt was out, a soldier in the American army twice; one of the times, for another, and once for himself......
Affiant came to this county to reside in this part of the county about forty or perhaps forty one years past and Platt had lived here some time before perhaps a year or two.

After receiving a dc for a gg grandmother, born in 1840 in Virginia, the document states her father is John Noel, born in France.  Unfortunately, the last name of her mother, born in Virginia, is unreadable.  What can be read is Sarah V. F ---y.
This gg grandmother met and married in her husband, a Dowdy, in Gallia County, Ohio where there are Noels, but her husband comes from Bedford County, Va. where there are Noels, also. This couple finally migrated to Lawrence County, Ky.
I have just started researching this line but cannot separate the John Noels and none with a wife named Sarah V. F--.  Does this sound familiar to anyone?

I have a copy of a letter from St Vincent Archabby (Sportsman's Hall, Latrobe, PA) which is contrary to my information. If anyone needs a copy I can send it by e-mail.

"Peter Noel son of Joseph Noel and Mary Borgmyer, born 26 October 1931 in Westmoreland County, PA was baptized by father James A Stillinger, Pastor, on 17 June 1832.  The sponsors were Bernard Grant and Hanna Griffith."

Peter Noel,  my granduncle, died in St Louis on his way home to Davenport, Iowa after being wounded at Champion Hill in 1863. Peter had stopped to visit his half brother in Latrobe, PA, Jacob Noel my grandfather, who may have tried to take him home.

I have the mother as Maria Longmeyer. Also the first wife of Joseph Noel was a Griffin and he had relations with this family until his death in 1839 so the spelling could be in error.

My information was from Harvey Noel who went to Latrobe and viewed the records, so I don't know which is correct although I would favor Harvey.

Searching for Joseph William Noel, born Apr.11.1871, Harbour Grace,NFLD.  His death cetificate states he was born in Harbour Grace, but I am beginning to doubt it.  Contacted the Provincial Archives in NFLD.  One record of a Joseph Noel born in 1868.  Unfortunately, this is not my Joseph.  It was suggested he came from the Channel Islands.  No record there either.  Where-o-where is my illusive Joseph !!            Bev.Noel

My ancestor is Benjamin Noel, born 1816 of Mercer, Kentucky.  In 1841 he married Miranda N. Bishop in Mercer,
Kentucky, who was also born in Mercer, Kentucky in 1820/1821.  They had 4 children in Mercer before moving to Illinois:
Charles b.1841, Harriet b. 1844, Josephine b. 1846 and Sarah b. 1848.  They had two more children born to them in Illinois:
Mary b. 1851 and Benjamin b. 1861.  Benjamin Noel (b. 1816) died in Illinois before 1870.  I do not know who Benjamin's
parents are.  Any information that you might have would be greatly appreciated.     Angela

Found an interesting tidbit today.  Was looking at some pages from Maryland that are supplements to the Conawago records, notes made by the priests prior to recording in the records. and found a difference.
In the Conawago records:
DILLONE ANDREW    11-18-1832   11/28/1832
Peter & Catherine Noel Dillowe
Sponsors Mr. & Mrs. Andrew Noile
In the notes the Child is:
Dillone, Andrew P.   <- P is added a middle name?
sponsors are:
Andrew Noel, Hanna Bechtel
The Noel tree has Andrew Noel married to Anna Bechtol the helps to clarify the names.

Mary Ellen Noel, born possibly in Sand Mountain, Ala about 1845, married William Kersey in Randolph County Georgea, 1866.
I have no information on her parentage.

Noel is used in family line as a first name, Noel Lawhon born 1776 in Cumberland County, N.C., married Sarah Bethune, maybe in Cumberland County, N.C.  No info on why his parents named him Noel, their daughter Nancy married Bannister Kersey, and they produced William who married Mary Ellen Noel.

If anyone would like more detail on these family lines forward in history I'd be more than happy to supply it.

Frank Noel, my great grandfather and my great grandmother Catherine Hensel or Henzel were Hungarian.  We are not sure of his exact birthplace but it was Hungary, possibly outside Budapest. To the best of my knowledge my great grandfather came over as a young child with his father, also named Frank (my family wasn't very original).  He had a Brother, Pete Noel of St. Louis and Catherine Pfieffer (Noel) also of St. Louis.  Frank was also married before Catherine and had children, but we don't know their names or places of birth.
My grandfather was baptized into the Catholic Church and from what I understand the family was devoutly Catholic. My Grandfather was baptized John Joseph Noel, and thought his name was John until he started school and found out his legal name was Frank.

My  ancester    George Noll, date of birth-  15 feb 1803, married-  9 feb 1858   to Gertrude Fieman, died- 11 sept 1858
all in Berks or Lebonan Counties Pennsylvina.  His father may have been John Noll but not confirmed.

In response to a letter about  Cornelius Noel of Virginia

(1) Although it has never made sense to me, the corrections Mrs. Weeks sent
out in 1985 clearly styled the name Nowe Passchier rather than Passchier
Nowe. It said that Jacob took his father's given name.

(2) Mrs. Weeks used the spelling Noel throughout her work, I assume for
uniformity and because it is the predominant spelling and that of her name.
However the important documents highlighted in her Vol. 1 show that the
original Cornelius spelled the name Noell. Apparently the second "l" was
dropped by most of his descendants over the generations, and my research
indicates that in the line of his son James, from whom I am descended, the
original spelling was retained to some extent. Pockets of this group are
numerous in Southwest Virginia, particularly Bedford County, and to a lesser
extent in Tennessee, Arkansas and Texas.

(3) As to Cornelius' faith, note that he was christened in the Dutch Reformed
Church in Leiden. I don't believe Mrs. Weeks documents his religious
experience in this country, but I have research indicating that a number of
his descendants became Baptists.

(4) I don't find the reference to Jacques Noel as the father of Nowe
Passchier you mention. Before the 1985 corrections in Mrs. Weeks work, when
it was thought that Cornelius' grandfather was Peter Noel of Sedan France,
Peter's father was shown as Jacob Noel.

(5) I have recently come into possession of a survey of the various land
holdings of Cornelius and his children in Essex County, prepared by in 1981
by a local surveyor who was commissioned by a Judge James Noell of Houston,
Texas. My wife and I rode around the general area (Occupacia Creek) in 1995,
but didn't know how to identify the location from the early grant and deed
records. This surveyor has offered to show us the precise area, and since we
plan to be in Virginia next week for other reasons, we may take him up on his

From the 1916 History of Schuylkill Co PA.

I was wondering if you would know of any connection between your Noel's and mine. My mother's Father was Leo Noel who married Emma Grace Thompson. They were married in Grand Maris Michigan. My great grandfather was from St Charles, MI. His name was John Frank Noel. He was born in Ohio. He died in 1903 and was born around 1838. Records indicate his father was from Virginia and mother from Ohio. This is as far back as I have been able to find.
Thank you for any help you may be able to give.
