My family tree traces to Pierre Noel (b1609) through Francois (his son) who came from Chirzy, Poitou. to old St. Laurent. I have copied your summary & will forward you my information later. I am scarce on time right now due to my profession (tax acct). Boston, MA

I'm very interested by the origin of the surname NoŽl. My husband has that name. His ancestor is FranÁois NoŽl who came from France to new France.

My first parents in Canada, both born in France, emigrated and met in Quebec, married in 1669, and settled on the "Ile d'Orleans" near Quebec city. Their names: FranÁois Noel and Nicole LeGrand. The decendants spread mostly in the province of Quebec but quite a few emigrated to the U.S., mainly to the northern eastern States. These are the ones that I'm mostly interested in locating.

I'm Marie-Nael Lessard, but my mom and familly are noŽl's. I'm from quebec, and I'd like to just tell you come stuff about our noŽl familly, I dont know the names, cause it was so long ago, but by what i read, I'm decendant of FranÁois, or Jean noŽl. Jacques Cartier( Quťbec's discoverer) 's sister married a NoŽl, back in france. He made 3 trips to quebec. On his last trip. he brought along his 2 nephews, that could be franÁois and Jean. From this, they lived around the Gaspť region for many years and could have live near quebec city ( Iles d'orlťeans) later on a NoŽl married a american indian woman. I couldn't tell the
origin, cause we are pretty confused. It could be mic mac or ever the montagnais. My Noel branch is from St-Malo france.

I have traced my NOEL ancestors to my great grandfather ERNEST NOEL in the quebec area. His Father's name was GIDEON and his mother MATHILDA GELINAS, as i understand it , MATHILDA'S Mother was possibly a CREE INDIAN, And beyond her more indian ancestry. im trying to get more info on this but haven't had much luck so
far. Could this possibly be the tie to cartier's noel's that married indian's.

I would like to share my 20plus year collection of genealogy research of my Noel ancestors with my cousins. Presently I am researching the entries of baptism, marriage and death entries of all NOELS in Quebec between the time period of 1820-1835 in the Druin microfilms of the American French Genealogy Society.
Two brothers, PAUL and AUGUSTIN NOEL came from Quebec to the USA around the late 1840's. Exactly where in Quebec, it is still uncertain. Possibly the Richleau Valley area, or in the area of a St. Charles, or Notre Dame DeStanbridge. I've been unable to locate their baptismal records. The only possible clue to their prior activity before arriving to Massachusetts, is that PAUL NOEL'S wife, MARY PLANT was born in 1828 in GRANVILLE, NY which is near the Vermont border. PAUL and AUGUSTIN could have been in that area prior to arriving in Massachusetts. Most of their children's vital records say parents were born in Canada. From the marriage records of PAUL and AUGUSTIN NOEL, it is recorded that their parents (from Canada) were JOHN or PAUL NOEL and ADELINE. This is what I have:
PAUL NOEL born approx 1828

All that I know is my great grandfather's family moved to Louisiana. His name was Edmond Andrew Ory ,Sr. He raised a family in New >Orleans. He had two children named Edna and Edmond Andrew Ory,Jr. (my grandfather) Edna Ory married Denis John Bergeron. Edmond Jr married Ethel Rapp(my grandmother) and they had a son they named Edmond Andrew
Ory, III (my father).My father was their only child.They moved from New Orleans to Jackson,MS in the early "40's. My father , Edmond,III married Gloria Genevive Milner in 1953. They had three children,Cynthia Ann,Lydia Kay and myself ,Andrew Morris Ory. I am the only Ory left on this end as my great-grandfather, grandfather, and my father have all passed away.I was wondering if you might have any information on any of the Ory's that moved to Louisiana it would be appreciated.

My g-grandmother was to have been Maria Kreitzer. She gave birth to my grandfather Jacob Noel in Mt Pleasant Twp, PA in 1834. That is all that I know. However today I have found a Maria Magdalena KREITZER and John A. SHORB marriage. Both were buried at St. Anthony's Emmitsburg, Frederick Co., MD. John Shorb's father is buried at Conewago, PA. My g-grandfather, Joseph, is believed to be the grandson of Peter Noel who was sixteen when he entered the Colonies and was born in now Adams County. Joseph's father Blasius moved to Tanneytown, MD after the war and Religious freedom. Joseph moved to Westmoreland County between 1797-99 and had his first child in 1800. Maria Kreitzer was his third wife and maybe a widow. Kreitzer could have been her married name. While Maria Magdalena was another Kreitzer the point is there is a connection in time, location and religion. If you can shed any light on this let me know.

I have been doing Bleecker and Noel research for years, concentrating on Garrat Noel from Suffolk, England, Spain
and then New York City.
Currently, I am trying to find a researching to track the

My ancestor is Michael NOEL, b. 1798, whom I believe to be the son of Blasius NOEL of Frederick Co., MD. I have attached a text file that shows all of his descendants as I have them. Michael married into the ARNOLD family of Frederick Co., MD, and one of the Arnolds also married a NOEL female (Anna, I think).
They wound up on Wyando Co., OH, which is where my great-grandfather Clement and his father, George, were from. I have Wyandot Co. records that definitively link George to Michael and Anastasia NOEL. Clement married into the KEAR family, and there was also another KEAR married into another branch of the Arnold family.

I have a picture of Solomon Noel, brother of Lucy Noel who married Henry Older. Solomon is young ... probably in his early 20's. Lucy was born in 1843 in Berlin Center, Mahoning County, Ohio. She was listed as 16 years of age in the 1860 Census. Solomon is listed as 9 years of age. There is also a Mary Noel, 14 years of age and Susanna, 6 years of age. Susannah married a Hoyle. I don't know what happened to Solomon. Their father is Jacob Noel and mother is Grace Leonard.

Do you have anything on a Julia Griffin, born ca. 1846 in Kingsville, Ohio and died 20 Jun 1878? She married Adelbert D. Sackett.
13 Sep Jeffrey Norris firstname.lastname@example.org
There are two Michael Noels involved here. The George J. and Margaret NOEL you referenced are my g-g-grandparents. That George's parents were Michael and Anastasia. Michael was born 1798 in Frederick Co., MD, and died in Wyandot CO. 11 Apr 1870. Anastasia was born 1804 in MD, and died 1873 in Wyandot Co. but is buried in a Catholic cemetery in Seneca Co. This Michael did have a son William A., plus children Francis, Marcellus, Emily, and Matilda. Don't know about Louise, but my records show a Lewis, so that could be a garbled record. The Arnolds are obviously related, and there was also an Anna Noel who married a William Arnold and ended up in Wyandot Co.
It seems you have a lot of my Michael NOEL mixed up with someone else. Most of what you have fits, but my Michael Noel's father was Blasius Noel of Frederick Co., MD, and Michael is named in that will, so I don't know who this John is that you mention, and that Michael Noel must be a different one. Michael and Anastasia lived in Tymochtee Twp. of Wyandot Co., arriving there early in 1830.It appears to me that your William A. Noel of Cass Co. is son of my Michael.
There is no question that the Noels of Adams Co., PA are related, but the Michael you mention is a different Michael.

I've read your history page and just now reread it. So I think I understand how my Noels fit in . John Noel came from Adams Co. PA and first stopped in Stark Co. Oh in 1822, then to Seneca Co. Oh in 1830 according to the Seneca Co. History book. John was born Oct. 15,1777, married Elizabeth Beamer June 16, 1801, died Oct. 29,1863. His Children included: John, Barbara, Elizabeth, Sarah E., Michael, Andrew, Catherine, Terrisa, Lydia, Philip, Mary Magadaline, Nicholas, Peter, Susanah, and William. I think I might be related to his son Nicholas. Do you know anything about a Samuel Elsworth Noel born in 1874? He is my gggrandfather. One source says he was born in Jackson twp. Seneca Co. OH and another says Venango Co. PA. I had a great uncle by the name of Nicholas and thought it might be a family name pasted down through the generations.

John P. Noel married Agnes Cecelia Ransil or Rancil Dec. 26th 1867 in Latrobe Pa.by Rev. Jerome Kearny (Was this St. V.'s??)....no remarriages and no divorce. Lived together for 48 years.
Rose C. took care of J.P. until he died and was buried at "Most Holy Sacrament Church" 412 North Main St., Greensburg, Pa. July 13, 1923. John P. tended bar in Greensburg where he lived. Also was a hotel clerk. The info in the Stevens page that he married Sarah Jane Mansfield is obviously wrong.
Note: There is an affidavit by an Alexander Moore that
sent in from
McGREGOR, IOWA, Dec. 9, 1891 which was interesting.

In the 1860 Federal census is listed the two Noel brothers: Willis Bridges and Benjamin Shelton, in case you want to add this to your family data. Unfortunately there are no twps. listed in this index. I imagine it is the Noel area, however in Mc Donald Co., MO (mostly because the other names are also from that area).... #59 was Willis Bridges Noel, 42, b. KY, Eliza (Mann) age 34, KY, Clark Wallace, male, son, 16, b. KY, W.J. male, 14, b.KY, Elizabeth E. female,
age 11, by. MO, Jake , male, age 7, b. MO, "Willis M. male, age 5, b. MO, and Eliza 11/12 female, born MO. #104 was Benjamin Shelton Noel, 37, born KY, with wife Nancy A. (Arens) age 34 B. KY, Two children were born in KY---Willis W. 15, and John Dudley 13.. (After John's name is 1849-1914). William U. son, born MO was 11, Clarrisa E. age 9, Casper E. age 7, George A. age 5, Eliza J. age 3, Clark W. 1, all born in MO. I have no idea who the last one was but she could have been a family member, Ann Williams, age 5, born Tenn. They had a Williams family living next door to the Noel's also.
There was a murder of a young Noel girl in 1892, which is part of Judge Sturges' history that was written, and republished by his daughter Claudia after his death. Mary Lula Noel, daughter of W.H. and S.E. Noel was murdered on 10 Dec. 1892, by a visitor named William Simmons of Joplin, MO. Mary Lula was staying with her sister, Mrs. Sydney Holly, who lived on the old Mann Farm. Simmons was found guilty of the crime in 1893 , murder in the first degree. It was contested
due to the fact the girl had been found drowned so was changed to second degree and Mr. Simmons was given 10 years in the state penitentiary. (Mary Lula was the grand-daughter to Shelton and Nancy Noel.) W.H. was born August 27, 1846 in Casey Co., KY and he was brought to MO that year. On August 1, 1864 he joined the the 2nd Cherokee regiment. Confederate volunteers and served until the close of the war. He married Nannie Huffman, Collins, TX on
20 Nov. 1867 and they had 10 children. He became the County Assessor in in 1892 after being the deputy sheriff for five years: 1887-1892. It is mentioned he was a Baptist and a Democrat ...
In this same Sturges History was a paragraph on A.W. Noel, son of Clark Wallace and F.M. Noel, born in McDonald Co., MO is 1868, that told how he was schooled in Mc Donald Co, and then went on to Warrensburg school and a Business College in Kansas City. When he returned home, he worked for M.N. LaMance, as a bookkeeper/clerk. He was appointed by President Cleveland to be the Postmaster of Pineville. In 1897 he married Grace Younce, of Pineville, and there were no children mentioned at this time. (This history was written in 1897).
One of the books has a picture of W. Bridge Noel, whom the town was named. He has a long white beard, and appears to be on a chair with straw of dryed grass under the feet of he and his wife. She is wearing a beautiful apron, with a child between them. Not a smile on their faces, of course. The story told how the town of Noel was host to the actors and workers on the JESSE JAMES movie of 1938, that was shot around SW MO starring Tyrone Power along with others. Every year Pineville, the main town of the movie, has a Jesse James Day and quite a few festivities... I just sent this to you, to add to your history if you would like it. Thank you again for mentioning me. This is a beautiful area, with very dear people. Bonnie Martin, the Family Limb Lines Lady of Goodman, MO

My great-grandfather was William S. Noel who settled in Southern Oregon. He is by our best accounts descended from Joseph Noel. You probably already have this information, but here goes anyway: Wm S. Noel had 13 children, one of whom Edna P Noel was my grandmother. The Douglas County Museum in Roseburg OR has some archives and a genealogy done by a woman who is (or was) the Harbor Master/Mistress(?) of Reedsport. The archives of the museum contain at least: 2 genealogies, some pictures of Wm S Noel, and other items I didn't have time to consult.

I called St V's and received this information. The records are poor for the era you requested. These are all the Noels
they have in there records. I went there and only found the grave of Sylvester Noel. The stone was worn and hard
to read. Could only make out his name and the date. I am planing to go back on a nice day and talk to
the attendants for the location of the other graves.

I have been looking for positive proof of my James Noel d. 1842 and Mary Noel d.1841 They were living on a piece of the land origanally part of the Noel grant in the Pigion Hills Jackson (Pardise twp.) York Co. Benajamine Strasbaugh married thier daughter Mary Margaret April 25 1838 they had many minor children that Benajamine and Mary were guardians of until they reached 21. I never forund James and Mary's marriage or birth records. My genealogy line is validated through census and tax records for the land but that is not real proof.
---Catherine Strasbaugh married Anthony Kline then a ? Little

and the child was baptised into Catharine Strasbaugh's church around the

"Philip Noll and his sons John Yost and George Noll, who later acquired land in the area were not of Joseph Noel's family.
Philip immigrated in 1751. When they arrived in the area is unknown. They appear to have been Protestants."
I have found that the Noll's seem to have come from around Bravaria,Germany near the Rhine River.

Adam Peter Noel, born June 10, 1800 in Westmoreland County, Penn. married Susannah Lindsay May 18, 1834. In 1835 he moved with his wife, her family and his brothers, Joseph, John, and Peter to Stephenson, Illinois (now Rock Island, Illinois). He helped to build Fort Armstrong. Later that year he moved across the river to Davenport, Iowa. He was a farmer and a
prosperous business-man in Davenport. He had four children, Margaret, John, Joseph, and Sarah. His father was Joseph Noel, born about 1771 and his mother was Margaret Griffin. Joseph's father was Blasius Noel born about 1762, his father was Peter (or Pierre) Noel, born 1720 in France. He came to Pennsylvania in 1736 with his family. His father was Joseph
Noel born in 1680 in France. I have a lot more info.

There very well could be a connection between Stald and Staud. This could be the same family. I believe my Stald family migrated from Switzerland in the 1700s into Bavaria, the Palatinate, and to America.

Nicholas Noel, son of Peter Noel of Adams County and his sister Magdalina Noel Flowers both went to the Loretto area.
It seens that Blasius the son of Blasius Noel of Maryland and a nephew of Nicholas Noel also went to Loretto.
My grand Uncle Adam Noel living in Westmoreland County was best man at the weding of a Blasius Noel at St Vincents at Latrobe, PA. The other Blasius in PA at that time was the son of John Noel, the son of the Maryland Blasius.

John's brothers and sisters are as follows:

When I said 'went to PA' I meant that John who was born in Adams County went with his family to Tanneytown, MD when he was in his youth. Note that when Blasius ( where there two sons called Blasius?) was born in 1790 in Maryland, John was only 12 years old. He then went to Westmoreland County, PA maybe with Peter and his older brother Joseph. At least that is
my line of reasoning at this time.

My Great-grandfather was Joseph Noel. We do not know where he came from or who his father was; but about the only one we know of who fits the picture is the Joseph, son of Blasius, son of Peter, son of the Adams County Joseph. I know this sounds far out but my line goes like this:
My father is buried as Leo B Noel and no one knows why;
latter that he was baptized as Leo Anthony. My
mother died when I
was one year old and I did not live with my father except
afterwards. But I did ask him once what the 'B'
stood for and I
he said 'Bloss'. This could be a false memory.
