 I am having a problem identifying my Noel ancestor in Kentucky.  James Noel was born in 1795 in KY & was living in Boyle Co. with his wife & children in 1850 & then they all disappear except for daughter Mary who married Daniel Hocker & moved to Texas (my gg-grandmother). We all believe that he was a grandson of Bernard Noel who died in Mercer Co.KY ca 1805 there in Mercer Co. but which son is his father?

I am almost positive that my line is from Cornelius of Essex Co.Va. Bernard had 5 sons but I have ruled out Lewis & Bernard Jr. That leaves William dc 1825; Scott d.c. 1805 & Elijah dc 1805 in KY. I have a lot of information on William but have not proven a relationship. Scott & Elijah have been almost impossible to trace unless we can find some descendants of these men. Census records are no help at all that early in Kentucky & so far have not found any land records.  If any has any suggestions I would appreciate it.   Margaret

From the Richmond Times Dispatch Newspaper 21 April 1907 Section A-2  Column 6

This was a reply to a genealogical query of the Virginia Noel's

"The first of the name mentioned [was] Cornelius Noel Sr and Jr of Essex County. He had a son or grandson, Rice Noel , who was living in Essex County, previous to 1792. His son Richard Noel  married Mary, daughter of Stapleton Crutchfield, of Spotsylvania; by this marriage he gained a moiety in a grant of 6,000 acres in Kentucky. His son Richard Crutchfield Noel, was living in  Spotsylvania 1795-96."

Rice was in the will of

I am descended from CORNELIUS Noel, b. abt 1623 in Leiden, South Holland; d. 1699 in Essex Co., VA.  I understand his parents were Jacob Noel, b. abt 1599 in Sedan, Ardennes, France, and Tryntgen Cornelis, b. abt 1600; that Jacob's father was Pierre Noel, b. abt 1565 in Sedan, Ardennes, France; and that Pierre's father was Jacque Noel, b. abt 1530 in Francheval, Ardennes, France.
Now I see on these pages that instead of Pierre, Jacob's father was Passchier Nowe, or Nowe Passchier.
My branch is as follows:
CORNELIUS Noel and Elizabeth Page
    JAMES Noel (b. 1680, VA) and Elizabeth Evans
        JOHN Noel Sr (b. abt 1721 in VA) and Anne Garnett
            THOMAS Noel (b. 1741 in VA) and Mary Drucilla Sellers
                MOSES Noel (b. 1779 in VA) and Lucy Bourne or Brown
                    HEZEKIAH Noel (b. 15 Feb 1812 in KY) and Rebecca Freeman
                        ELISHA Bracston Noel (b. 12 Dec 1851, IA) and CELESTIA
Celestia (or Celestial or Celestine or Celeste; on the 1900 Census it looks like Celestia) must have been Elisha's second wife; first wife was named Minerva Miller.
                          MARLEY Noel (b. 20 August 1899, Corning, IA)
                            and Vera Wallbridge
                            BETTY NOEL Lawrence (b. 12 Aug 1924, Spokane, WA)
I'm Betty's daughter Joan.  I never knew my grandfather; he left my grandmother with three small children back in 1928.  My grandmother never said anything negative about him.  All we knew about him was that his family was supposedly from Alsace-Lorraine, and he had a sister named Lena.  Apparently he remarried and moved to California, and may have had other children.   I found through research that he died in Arizona in February of 1982. We believe that in his second marriage my grandfather, Marley Noel, had a son, in California -- and I would be interested in finding him. He would be in his mid-70s now, if still living.

I am looking for some information on a James Noel, and cannot find anything in any of my notes.  I was able to obtain the page that everyone was missing from THE NOEL TREE a couple of years ago....and now I cannot find my copy of the book!  Perhaps there might be some mention of him there, but I have no way of knowing.  According to a list that a friend of mine copied at the Adams Co. Hist. Soc. several years ago, there was a James and Catharine Noel who had the following children:
James  b. 3-12-1804           c.  6-3-1804  Sponsors James and Maria Adam, Catharine Marthins
Anna (South Mountains)  b. 5-13-1806    c. 5-20-1806  Sponsors Andrew and Theresa Noel
Charles  b. 10-21-1808      c. 11-15-1808  Sponsors Charles and Maria Delon
Catharine  b. 2-8-1811        c. 2-20-1811  Sponsors Andrew and Elis. Noel
These were transcribed from the records of the Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, Conewago Chapel, in Edge Grove, Adams Co.
Since my Henry was supposedly born in 1804, I thought this was worth checking out.  I am considering the possibility that his name could have been James Henry Noel.  If you can shed any light on James and Catharine Noel, I would really appreciate it!
I had been focusing on Peter and Miss Dull (Doll) as strong possibilities, but then a couple of years ago I received a note from another descendant of Henry that showed a note that had been written in an old book that said "Sarah Ca__el the Mother of Henry Noel died March the 3 AD 1856 aged 74 years."  You may recall that I forwarded the image to you and Ted to get your opinion in trying to decipher the last name

I am trying to find the parents of Mary ( Maria ) Noel, who married Augustine Brandt.
Augustine Brandt b. 2/10/1813 - Loretta PA. married Mary (Maria) Noel b.abt. 1820  on August 13, 1837 in Harts Sleeping Place.  The time period for Mary's death is given as 1852 to 1856.   Have not been able to locate a burial place for her.   They lived in Clearfield County so have to "assume" it would be there.  Hope to get to Clearfield this summer at least for a day of research.   
It is "assumed" Mary died prior to 1856 since Augustine married Philomena Martin on 4/4/1856.

I can't help you with Peter Noel/Catherine Hoak, but wanted to correct the record about one of their children that you listed:  Elizabeth Noel.

It is without question that this daughter was born in 1829 from the Ledoux, Vol. II, Record #1868 NOEL, Elizabeth (Petri/Catharinae) b. 8-19; bp 10-10-1829; gp: Rev. D. A. Gallitzin/Maria Magdalena Noel, wife of Abraman.

Some researchers have thought this daughter of Peter/Catherine then married John Rager based on this Ledoux record: Ledoux, Vol. II, Record #4824 RIGAR, Joannem Protestant m. 5-2-1847 NOEL, Elizabetahm, wi: Andreas Regan/Sara Dillon.

It is important to note the date of this marriage 5-2-1847 and then look at the 1850 census records where you can find Elizabeth Noel/John Rager in their own household in Jackson Twp, Cambria Co, PA and Elizabeth Noel in her parents household in East Deer Twp, Allegheny:

1850 Jackson Twp., Cambria County
13  66   68  Rager          John           35  M    W     Labourer,  Pa
14  66   68  Rager          Elizabeth      21  F    W      Pa
15  66   68  Rager          Sarah C.       2   F    W    Pa
16  66   68  Rager          Willaim A.     6m  M    W     Pa

1850 census in East Deer Twp., Allegheny Cty.
Peter Noel 46 M Coal Digger 200 PA
Catharine Noel 51 F PA
J(?)acob 28 F
Elizabeth 20 F
Benjamin (??) 15 M Laborer
Henrietta Noel 11 F

Peter/Catherine's daughter Elizabeth is still in their household on the 1850 census while Elizabeth & John Rager are in their own household with the two oldest children of their ten children.

I have good evidence that the Elizabeth Noel who DID marry John Rager was one of the daughters of the William Noel who died in Cambria Co, PA in 1882 which I would be happy to post here if you need further documentation for this correction.

By any chance was this Emmanuel Noel of Northumberland County, PA related to Jerome A Noel (1839-1916, husband of an Emma Catherine Ream (Rheem/Rheam/Reem)of Perry Co?

17 April 2004   This has been placed at Cambria Co Hist Soc in Ebensberg, PA by Jean Sharbaugh <JeanShar40@aol.com> who is researching all early Cambria Co families of; Luther, Baker, Kuntz, Sherry,Cramer, Weakland, Kirkpatrick, Sharbaugh, Platt, Miller, Noel

Descendants of Joseph Noel of Cambria County, PA

Generation No. 1

1.  JOSEPH1 NOEL was born 1790, and died March 03, 1865.  He married ELIZABETH SPIECHER.  She was born 1790.

Notes for JOSEPH NOEL: Maiden name for Elizabeth his wife In 1838 Aloysius Swope married Mary Noel, a daughter of Joseph and Elizabeth (Spiecher) Noel, then of Allegheny township. Mr. Noel was a native of Rhenish Prussia and came from the Fatherland to America in 1834. He was a farmer by principal occupation.

Burial: St Michaels Loretto


i. JOSEPH2 NOEL, b. 1810; m. CATHERINE STOLTZ, November 03, 1840; b. 1822.

Marriage: November 03, 1840
Lived in Munster Twp

ii. MARION A NOEL, b. Abt. 1812; m. ALOISIUS SCHWAB/SWOPE, January 09, 1838; b. August 15, 1811; d. April 12, 1879.

Aloysius Swope, only son and only child of Joseph and Mary (Gerber) Swope, was born in Pheterhausen, Alsace, August, 15, 1811. In 1833, when twenty-two years old, he came to America with his widowed mother and settled in Allegheny township, Cambria county. He bought a farm and farming was his occupation in life. He lived on the farm he first purchased for about fourteen years, and then removed to what was then White township, but now is Chest township. In this locality he acquired possession of two of the very oldest as well as the largest farms of Chest, township. The one he first occupied was known as the Glen Connell place, with which settlement much that is interesting in the early history of Chest township is associated. He purchased the farm from the McConnell heirs and built a house, the material for which, except the stone and logs used in its construction, was brought by wagon from Philadelphia. It was a very large house and for the time and place was considered almost a mansion. Here Mr. Swope lived a number of years and then bought what was known locally as the Proudfoot place, about two miles distant from the Glen Connell place. This locality, too, has its history, and here once lived Richard J. Proudfoot, a distinguished member of the Pennsylvania legislature in 1857 and 1861. Here Mr. Swope spent the remaining years of his life and died April 12, 1879.

Marriage: January 09, 1838

iii. KATHRYN NOEL, b. Abt. 1813; m. LOUIS MAYER/ MYERS, February 10, 1839.

Marriage: February 10, 1839

iv. MARY CATHERINE NOEL, b. May 04, 1815, Germany; d. August 18, 1880, East Carroll twp cambria co pa; m. JACOB A JACQUES SHARBAUGH, May 07, 1838, St Micheals loretto pa; b. June 11, 1814, Kubelberg Germany; d. December 24, 1875, East Carroll twp cambria co pa.

Burial: St Benedicts cemetery Carrolltown


CD # 273, Passenger & Immigration Lists, NY 1820-1850;
  Jacob Schabacher, age 13, farmer from Erbach, from Amsterdam, NYC arrival 6/4/1832;  (age mistake, should be 18)
  Theobald Schabacher, age 23, farmer, from Amsterdam, NYC arrival 6/4/1832. (both on ship, Herald)

The Sharbaugh family is of German descent, and locate their trans Atlantic home in one
of the present states of the great German Empire, whose educational progress and military growth have been so wonderful since its establishment in 1871. From this great land, which was not over powerful fifty years ago, came Jacob Sharbaugh and his family, who landed in the United States in 1832. He soon removed to Carroll township, where he resided until his death.  He was a blacksmith by trade, and in religious faith and church membership a Catholic. He married in Germany and had a family of five children, three sons and two
daughters: Jacob, who married Mary Noel, and died December 24, 1875, aged sixty-one years; Catherine wedded Michael Latterner, and is now deceased; Peter, now engaged in farming in Carroll township; Elizabeth, who married John Flick, and is now deceased, and Squire John Sharbaugh all born born in the Grand Duchy.

   After I found  the Sharbaugh birthplace in Germany as Kubelberg, Joe Sharbaugh, Brother of WilliamSharaugh Jr, visited the Home in April 2000. He and his German born wife Elke were treated as Royalty by the small villiage of Kubelberg. Kubelberg was combined in 1969 with the village of Schoenberg to become Schoenberg-Kubelberg. The nearest City would be Trier . The home that Jacob Schabacher and his wife Magdalena  left in 1832   is still occupied by family though not named Schabacher but Mohrbach . The town is the size of Carrolltown   ,pa. The Shabacher family were the town blacksmiths a trade they continued here in Cambria co pa. They also had a farm in the outskirts of Kubelberg, Joe and Elke were told that the family had money when they left. The brick  home in Kubelberg reminds me of the Sharbaugh and Flick Brick homes built outside Carrolltown in the 1850's  . The photos of the church are almost identical with early photos of St Benedicts , Carrolltown. We found that the son of Jacob and Magdalena, Jacob A Sharbaugh, b 1814 left Kubelberg in 1830 with his first cousin John Theobaldus Sharbaugh  b 1809. These two young men came to Cambria co and prepared for the rest of the family to follow which they did in 1832. Other families from this town also settled here in Carrolltown area, Hubers, Strittmatters, Stoltz,Mayer,Jahner etc .

Burial: 1875, St Benedicts cemetery Carrolltown

Marriage: May 07, 1838, St Micheals loretto pa

v. PETER NOEL, b. 1823, Germany; d. December 10, 1906, Carroll twp; m. SARA ANN COONS,/ Kuntz / Koons April 20, 1847; b. 1819; d. 1896.

I have searched for Madison Noel who married Sarah Van Bibber But NO ONE can find him. Seems like he came by once in a while to make an off spring and disappear again.  He did create my grandfather William T.Noel and I find every thing but his death.  He was still alive in 1900 in
Jonesville Ky but no where can I find a record of his death. Census takers have really messed up on names. It says he married a lady named Cormelia in 1869. How ever I finally found he married a Pamelia Noel the daughter of R. Calvin Noel and Nancy Wilhoite. Sarah moved on with her life with a James Lee in Owen County after remarrying in late Sept 1850.. I now need to find the parents of R.Calvin Noel who would be my ggrand father on Grand mothers side. I think you knew of Sarah's back ground that there is an attatchment to Daniel Boone. I will make a list of Noel children from W.T. and also from Sarah and Madison as well as Sarah and James Lee. Hope these names will help someone.

Searching my line of Noel,s and of course lost. My immediate family, all passed away are W. T. Noel b1846. Pamelia wife about 1856.Children,Emma S, 1870, John S 1872, Peter V 1874, Willie B 1876, Jane A 1878, James F 1882, Addie D 1885 Robert W 1888, Joseph O 1891, Isa M 1895 and Donald K 1900. Williams father was supposedly Madison Noel and mother was Sarah Van Bibber.  Madison noel has not ever left any records of his where abouts.  It seemed he would come home and father a child ans disappear.  William was his second child with Sarah. It is suggested that Sarah had an erlier relative thar married Daniel Boones son and they went to Mo. The matrriage of Sarah and Madison took place in Vevay Indiana, I have this record. William my grandfather married Pamelia in 1859 and she was already a Noel.  I dont know if its blood or from a different clan.  Her father was R Calvin Noel and mother was Nancy Wilhoite. Their children were Amos, Henry, Pamelia, Mantatia, Mary, Florence and Willis. All are from Owen County Kentucky
and if any one has any information on any one in this clan that will help me connect Please Contact me. Robert W son of W. T. is my father.

 My 1st mother-in-law was Queen Victoria Noel, She married Howard Clabern Hensley. Some of the little kids in the family had trouble with her name and they started calling her Minnie. Her          brother William Noel called her Vickie or Minnie. Their father was Landon Noel, but I don't know her mothers name. Her mother died when the kids were very young and an uncle took them in. His name was Wash I think and his wife was Jennie. Most likely it was Washington and Virginia.               I have been working on my family, but I need to do these folks for my children. You can ckeck in Amherst,Co., Va. and find these Noels. Their address was Snowden,Va. at that time, but those people up there get their mail at Big Island,Va.

Daniel Skelly was my gr. gr. Grand father, William Skelly, was my gr. grandfather, Albert Skelly, was my grandfather and His daughter Alice was my mother. Albert was from Cambria Co. I Think he was born at Wilmore.  He worked for the Railroad at the Juaniata Yard {Altoona} and was transferred to the Homestead yard at Pittsburgh,Pa.

Albert married Bertha Walker Lucas at Juaniata. Albert and Bertha had my mother Alice in 1914 and a son William in 1922. Albert's sister was Mary  Skelly Shimp. There were other children by William and Julia McKinney but I only had the privilege of knowing my gr aunt Mary Shimp.     Patricia

2-10-2005    Notes on Simon Noel of Westmoreland & Cambria Counties , PA 
Just found this from the Greensburg, Pa Registries (also called "Sportsman's Hall" & "Clear Springs")
transcribed by Barbara Brady O'Keefe These records are on file at the CatholicPA website if you want to search for more Noels.
I'm sure you folks know this, but I had to look it up - Greensburg, Pa - Westmoreland County, Hempfield Twp.
Since the parents of Simon are Peter & Margaret Noel, I added any baptisms that included those names. I'm pretty sure that all the Peter & Margaret baptizing babies in these records aren't Simon's parents, maybe a sibling?

Dear Cambria rootsweb:
Is anyone on this forum researching the family of a Simon Noel who appears on the 1840 Cambria census in White Township:

Simon died in 1848 and I believe this is the census for his widow and some of his children, still in White Twp:

It would appear that Simon died before 1850 because I think this is the same family in 1850:

and living a few households away is 'probably' an older son, based solely on the child named Simon, so this may be a wild speculation:

[Carol’s NOTE: Parents name in ()’s, so ‘if’ this is the correct Anthony J. Noel, then his father was ‘a’ Simon Noel, mother Mary Ann (no surname recorded for her, as often happened), but she might have had a family relationship with either WEAKLAND or KUEBLER.

[Carol’s NOTE: This is clearly the marriage record for the Henry Luke Noel, but in this record Anthony’s father is shown as Samuel Noel. Since the wife of Samuel is Anna Maria (reversal of Mariae Annae) I think there is a good chance that Samuel Noel = Simon Noel, and this is either a transcriber’s error, or the priest mis-recorded the 1st name. I can prove that happened on more than one occasion!!]

What I have found is a bit conflicting, but at the same time, may prove helpful.  William Noel enlisted during the Civil War from Morris, Grundy County, Illinois.  On his Muster Roll entry, he listed his place of birth as Blair County, Pennsylvania.  From early census records, I think he may have been the William Noel listed in the 1850 US Census as a 16 year-old laborer in York County, Pennsylvania.  In every census record found, he lists that he was born in Pennsylvania.
His obituary, however, tells a completely different story.  William died at his son's home, with that son listing his father as born in Holland during the 1900 census.  William's obituary states that he was born in Germany about 1836, and came to this country at the age of 4.  Whether he actually was born in Germany as claimed by the writer of the obituary, or Pennsylvania as he himself claimed, it would appear that his family was at least of German origin with ties to Pennsylvania.  I thought perhaps he might have been related to the Noel family of Pigeon Hills, Pennsylvania.
Obituary - Ottawa Fair Dealer - 28 July 1905
William Noel died at 10 o'clock Monday morning at the home of his son
Reese of Kangley.  For some time he had been suffering from heart disease
and bronchial trouble.  Sunday morning before breakfast he had been to the
country to bring in some oats.  He began to feel bad after he had had his
meal and became gradually worse until he succumbed. 
Mr. Noel was born in Germany but came to this country when he was but four
years old.  He was about 69 years old.  Besides his son of Kangley he leaves
a wife and two daughters, Mesdames Hurd and Johnson of Chicago.  The deceased
was a member of the G.A.R., having served in the civil war, but on his return
followed the occupation of a miner.  He was a member of the Congregational
church of Kangley, where the funeral services were held.  Interment was made
in Riverwood cemetery.  Mr. Noel had been a resident of Streator and vicinity
for thirty-two years.

My grandmother's maiden name was Noel. She  was born in northern New York and lists as having lived there during the 1930 census. Her parents were French Canadian as listed on the census at that time. Her parents were Eugene J. Noel and Isabel A. Kernan. Eugene's parents were John and Alexina Noel. Let me know if you have any information on them or they are in your genealogy.

 I am looking for the family of a JOHN NOEL II of Nashville TN.

John Noel II married Andromedia BAGWELL and resided in Nashville in the 1950's, 60's and 70's ...they had sons, one named John Noel III, who I believe became an attorney.

The Bagwells were my stepfathers family: N. L. and Lillie B. Bagwell. They lived at 3710 Woodmont Boulevard in Nashville in the 50's, 60's 70's....N.L. Sr. died in the 50's I believe. Andromedia was the eldest daughter; my stepfather WALTER MOORE BAGWELL was the eldest son. N.L. Sr. and Lillian founded the Bagwell Preserving Company.... Other siblings were Sara (Rice); Mary, and a son N.L. Bagwell Jr. who died as young man. HE had two sons however....

JOHN NOEL II was a successful businessman  but I am not certain in what area. He may have been an attorney as well. Both families were quite wealthy. My step-grandmother Lillie B. Bagwell, died in early 70's and I lost touch with the family. I believe John's middle initial was A.

My stepfather: Walter "Moore" Bagwell, died in 1973. He married my mother Rhoda HORTON, in 1959 in Louisville, KY and they were married 14 years until his death in 1973. *** I have some wonderful photographs of this NOEL/BAGWELL family that I have wanted to return to someone of closer kin if wanted.

I believe that JOHN NOEL III, "Johnny", son of Andromedia and John II, may be an attorney in Nashville. I would especially like to connect with him. His younger brother may have been named Nicholas.

If anyone who receives this message can help to give me ANY information on any of the above names in the Noel family, OR redirect me, I would greatly appreciate hearing from you.

Regards,    Betty

Just found something today of interest.  I purchased two tin Potato Chip cans that read:  Noel's Potato Chips, Inc.  Hanover, PA.
Do you have any idea or ever heard of this?  I was wondering how long  they were in business and the first names of the Noel family who owned the company?  Also, did they sell the company to the UTZ Potato Chip Company in Hanover, PA?
Any help is appreciated.   Denise

My great-grandmother was Georgina Noel, born 1858 in Quebec, CN and died 1935 in Michigan, USA.
I am looking for more information on her parents, Edouard Noel (born 1822) and Mathilde Collin (born 1823).
Information I would like on them is their parents names, ethnicity, etc.   Marcie

In reading your web-site I was pleased to see the name of my wife's grandfather, DANIEL NOEL who left Inkerman, New Brunswick and settled in Lincoln, Maine. Daniel's parents were JEAN NOEL and MARGUERITE BOUDREAU. I have copied the baptism records of most of Jean Noel's siblings and his and Marguerite Boudreau's children from the church records of Inkerman, Saint Michel. However, I have not been able to find the marriage record for Jean Noel and Marguerite Boudreau. Apparently they were not married in Inkerman. Do your records show where they were married or can you suggest the name of someone who might know? I would like to try to follow-through on the Boudreau family history if I can locate where Marguerite Boudreau lived. Any help would be appreciated. Laurence Sykes

This is in response to the Barbara Noel account on Letters Page 1. "Barbara NOEL was born in 1818 and married Abraham KIME on 15 Sept 1836 in Hilltown, PA.  Out of this union they had eleven children."

Abraham's civil war papers say he was married Barbara Noel on sept 15, 1836 by rev. Benjamen Kellar, but records at the Philadelphia Historical Society of the St. James Evangelical Lutheran Church of Gettysburg list their marriage date as October 17, 1837.

Most of this information is from census records and the church records and show 12 children. In birth order they were: Peter, Franklin, Elizabeth, David, Daniel, Caroline, Ferdinand, James, Margaret, George, and twins Harriet Susan and Sarah Alice. Barbara died February 23, 1904 and Abraham died August 1902. Abraham and Barbara's first child Peter was born March 12 1838 and died Jan. 2, 1841 and is buried in Arendtsville.
I  have a lot more info if anyone would like to email me I could mail it to them.  Abraham and Barbara's son George born May 11, 1856  was my great great grandfather.

I have an ancestor, Philip/Phillip Freeman, and have the following information about him (not sure it’s 100% reliable):  - born in 1743  duied in Stahlstown PA July 5 1829. He  served in the Revolutionary War and his  wife named Mary.    I am also aware of a Philip/Phillip Freeman through some web pages who  moved to Westmoreland County PA around 1787-1790 and  built/had built the original part of the Inn (now the Compass Inn Museum) in Laughlintown PA in 1799  and - served in the Revolutionary War.  I suspect that they are the same person, and am looking for more information on the Philip/Phillip Freeman associated with the Inn in Laughlintown. Can anyone help me?   Thank you!

My family has four generations of Eugene A. Noel, and I am hoping we can find the first one, or at least the one that started it all. My grandfather is supposed to hail from Nashville, Tennessee.  His grandfather is said to have been a red-headed barber.

My grandfather Eugene A. Noel was probably born around June 18, 1910?  His father, Doc, was probably born around 1890 or so?
There is also an Arthur Noel, not sure if Eugene and Arthur were related, but may be an answer to the middle name of Arthur.
There is a John Noel in Nashville, may possibly be a link too.

Noels in Germany and Hungary

I am tracing my maternal Grandmother's family line - she was Anna Maria Noel and her father was Christov Noel, whose family fled Alsace for Hungary in the 1800's. Christov was an artist before the 2nd World War and painted on behalf of the Roman Catholic Church in churches and cathedrals in Hungary.

My mother and her family were displaced into Germany in 1946 when she was 14 years old. Her mother's family was Schwäbisch (Swabian, Suabian) and we speak German.  The family was devout Catholics and was very much involved in performing the stories from the Bible at religious festivals. We, as a family are still devout in our faith and continue our good works. We are proud of our Noel roots.

My ancestral line goes Benjamin (Berry), his son Horace H., who married Mary B
"Polly" Asher November 1815, in Mercer County, Kentucky.

1825-1828, Joshua T., b. abt. 1830, Nancy, b. abt. 1832, William H. b. abt.
1834, and my direct ancestor, Mary B. b. abt. 1837?

Mary B. Noel married Jesse Hayes/Hays in Knox Co. ILL.

My great grandmother, Catherine Noel Brun was born July 11, 1802. She lived  in the Rening town area in Lorraine 'sbetween Metz and Strasbourg. She
married my great grandfather, Nicholas Brun from Rening and they came to the Monroe, Michigan in 1847 with five children. From there, the family went to
Ohio, Minnesota, and later to North Dakota. Her son, John Baptist Broun was  the priest who had the catholic cathedral St Bernard's built in Akron, Ohio
in about 1900. However, John Baptist Broun used one of the earlier family names, not Brun.

Catherine's father was Thibault Noel 7/15/1767 - 2/6/1819 and her  grandfather was a Thomas Noel, mostly from the town of Insming.
Older family names from that area in France include Noel, Schoubrenner, Clement, Parisot, Picot, Spor, Schwartz, Lander, and Coureur (about 1550).

There was a Michael Noell who came with his wife Anna Stein and five children from Dept 54, Meurthe, France in 1853, also to Monroe, Michigan as
seen in the 1860 census. They had 3 more children after coming to the USA. They came via Havre. John and Marie Noel Schaffer lived in Alsace-Lorraine
until 1869 when they emigrated to the USA with their son Nicholas and two daughters, landing in New York. Michael and John were assumed to be brothers
by somebody. I don't know that I'm related to them.

    Right now, I'm trying to update my 2000 book on the family and put it on a CD.

I am searching the Noel side of my family, the info I have of my grandmother is as follows:-

Agnes Noel (maybe Mary Agnes and/or Agnes Mary)
DOB - 15 December 1869, Harbour Grace or Brigus
DOD - 4 December 1917, Halifax, Nova Scotia
Married - Lorenzo Andrews, of Harbour Grace South Side
              May 7, 1893, Methodist Church, Carbonear
              and immigrated to Halifax, Nova Scotia.

She may have a half-brother Jim Rose, and she may also be related to the Verge family

I think her family was originally from Jersey, Channel Islands

I cannot seem to connect her to any Noel family, any help would be appreciated.

I am looking for information on Catherine NOEL born around 1820 in Missouri.
She was married to a Thomas ROBERTS born in Kentucky. My great, great
grandfather, John Jackson ROBERTS was their son. Their names and places of
birth are given on his death certificate. I can find no other information on
either of them, not even a marriage. My great great grandfather, John was
born in 1848 in Boone County, Missouri and married Sarah J. CLEETON,
daughter of John J. CLEETON and Mary A. BAKER.  The story has been handed
down through the family that Thomas and Catherine NOEL ROBERTS had two
children: a daughter and my great, great grandfather, John. Catherine died
when the children were at a very young age and their father, Thomas ROBERTS,
left them in the care of relatives - whether ROBERTS or NOEL - I do not
know. His was gone many years. My grandmother, Grace Odessa ROBERTS GOFF
says that she remembers that as a young girl when they would go to visit
these relatives a black woman, I am assuming must have been a slave in the
household at the time, would run out and throw her arms around her father
and call him her "little Johnnie", so she must have helped in his growing-up
years. My grandmother also remembers a man coming to their home claiming to
be her grandfather, Thomas ROBERTS, but her father would have nothing to do
with him.

I am looking for  any information of a John Edward Noel, whose parent were listed as Edward John Noel - mother is Myrna Carpenter - John Edward was born in Republic, PA , date given as April 21, 1917- this information is from his social security application which listed his address in 1940 as Washington DC.  I have been told he had brothers and sisters that were living with his mother in the Scranton area of PA.  He also lived in Chicago, IL in the late 1940's and early 1950's.  I would appreciate any other information from anyone on this page, as I have been looking for almost 6 years.

The New information that I have is that we are looking for a John Noel who lived in Hunter, Huntingdon County when his son Charles Noel 1827-1899 was born. So this would put his birth back to the turn of the century as they married in their late twenties at that time.

Charles parents were listed on his marriage certificate to Mary Crawford as John and Mary Noel

1st Wife  - Anne Marie Nash 1837-1886
2nd Wife – Mary Crawford 1848 –

All the Children were born to Charles and Anne Marie

Daniel Noel 1856-1918
