"Blossy" and Mary's head stones are shown on D.N.'s page at St. V.'s I have her dad' Charles Brogan Sr.'s "estate" settlement.
Charles was born 1761 in Ireland. In his last days, he lived with Blasius Noel and Mary. J.P.Noel , your great grandpap was 5' 5" tall,.dark hair, dark eyes. He weighed about 160 pounds so I get the feeling he was "sturdy" although he did suffer all his life apparently with C.W. problems. Again, I think most of them did, by the records I have on them. Sylvester, died from his C.W. ailments about 1873? J.P.'s brother. J.P. states in his record that he knows how old he is because his parents recorded it in their Bible. (He ID's them as Blausius and Mary) His sister "The Murphy one I think it was" she says she knew how old he was because she was "8" when he was born !!! "take that eh!" At the 11th regiments monument at Gettysburg,(see DN's page)
at the foot of the soldier there is their mascot's statue "Sally, the war dog" When I snapped that picture, people were still leaving biscuits and bones for the dog. One bone had a note on it "Sally, for a job well done". She had about 6 litters of pups during the war, and Lincoln actually met her twice. She got lost after the Gettysburg scrap and they found her with her dead troops that had got overrun the first day. (Emanuel Noel, J.P. and Sylvester's cousin was captured that day.) Neither J.P. nor Sylvester made it to the Gettysburg battle. The only one that has any details in J.P.'s file, is Rose C. Noel, she cared for J.P. faithfully in his last days.

After reviewing the "STORM" tree, I came to the conclusion that Sylvester Noel of the 11th Pa. Inf. in the Civil War (Son of Blasius and brother of Placidus NOEL) should have got at least an honorable mention as the first husband of Ellen STORM shown as married to Brady McCullogh, since she was the recipient of Sylvester's pension after Brady died. (Sylvester isn't mentioned at all). Sylvester died June 5th 1871 from disease contracted during the war. Brady died 4th of July 1908
Ellen (STORM)(NOEL) McCullogh died March 20th 1939

Sylvester Noel married a Ellen Storm in the Civil War era, Sylvester died young as a result of disease picked up during the war. He was my gr-grandfather Placidus (Plotsey) Noel's brother. This is fun just reading the names, "aint" it.NOEL's and LOGSDON's must have been pretty close because a SAMUEL LOGSDON and Sylvester's brother John P. NOEL witnessed the signature of Ellen as the claimant for his pension when Sylvester died.
Emanuel NOEL (Sylvester's cousin) married a Margaret A. LOGSDON daughter of Raphael LOGSDON and Rebecca nee MATTINGLY of Westmoreland County, Pa. Witnesses were Sylvester J. NOEL and Mathilda Anna HENRY. Taken from the Matrimonial Records of St. Vincent's Abbey Church and as included in Emanuel's Civil War records.
Sylvester and Emanuel NOEL were both in the 11th Pa. Vol. Inf.
in the Civil War, Sylvester was released due to illness from which he
fully recovered, and Emanuel was a "veteran" (more than one
Emanuel was captured during the first day of battle at Gettysburg and
same time frame. These people were all members of St. Vincents in
Pa.(Their ancestors helped build the place.) My guess is that they

entirely a guess!, some proof) In closing this e-mail, the "Maryland
Society" has a history of the LOGSDON family which may be viewed by the
public in their files, and I've been saying for a while now, that I'd
to read that. They go way back in Maryland.

Without locales and dates it is difficult to say if my line of Speas/Spiess/Speiss/Spiece/Speece/Speace, etc., is connected to your line or not. However, I must say, I have not seen this spelling of your SPEASS before. This is not to say that there is not a connection.
My line was in PA and migrated to Ontario, Canada. Think they were first in the Haldimad (not sure of spelling) and then to the York Co. Markham area of Ontario.
They came to Michigan circa 1838 and settled in the Shiawassee

I found a George, a Francis and a Susan NOEL in some of the Carroll County Catholic Cemetery's last night. I also spotted an Abraham NULL with a long list of relatives buried in one of the non-Catholic cemeteries there. I didn't check out the ignificance of these folk yet though. There are a lot of familiar names planted there. I found them in the USGENWEB Project for Maryland by going through a link off of those Pa. County pages I've been looking through. I got those pictures in the mail today.

1) Blaze (Blasius Noel) had no connection with the Storm's (married a SPIES) yet they lived close by (Troublesome Job). J.S. sold parts of this at different times, Blossy probably bought some.
2) Blaze is listed (count em) three times in John Storms will, he either owes John, or John owes him, I haven't figured it out yet. (the language used).
3) There is a John NOLL/or NULL also listed I forget which, with the same situation as 2) above. (Blossy is also spelled three different ways in the will.)
4) John NOEL is the only real connection with the STORM's via Mary Maggie.
5) M.M. received a 5th share of J.S.'s land in Huntington County Pa. along with a sizable chunk of cash.
In short, it just appears to me that the NOEL's and STORM'S were a pretty close knit bunch and they were probably still in Md., when J.S. died in 1805 and even later. The final accounting of J.S.' will wasn't until after Elizabeth died about 1815.
Note also, that John Storm is buried at the Conewago Chapel
19 May 1998 <Webrene1@aol.com>
1) I have an 1860 census record that states Joachim was born in Maryland, and we already know he was born in 1812. Census lists him as 47 years old.
2) I don't know right off where Blasius of 1814 was born but am starting to think it was Maryland also.
3) Also don't know where the other two of JOHN NOEL's kids were born?
Note that John STORM mentions his property in "HUNTINGTON"
county was formed from Huntington and others in 1804, after John STORM
wrote his will thus my theory is that his property was actually in what
is now CAMBRIA County. And since JOACHIM is listed in the 1860 census
born in MARYLAND, I suspect that JOHN NOEL didn't leave MARYLAND with
kids until after his Mum Elizabeth died in 1815 or later??

Blasius Noel names his wife Mary, (she is definitely BROGAN) They had:
John P. NOEL CPL. 11th Pa vol.inf. reg.
Sylvester is not named since he died of disease contracted in the civil war in about 1870 or 71 (He was married to Ellen STORM) he also was in the 11th Pa.Vol.'s
Elizabeth (married Samuel LOGSDON)
Placidus (married Anise America Libengood)
Agnes (married James Murphy) she received plot of land #5 Note that Agnes is written in the margin of the will here by
someone??? In the will writeup, he refers to "My daughter intermarried with James Murphy" Later, "I do give unto my daughter NANCY the right of way through Plot#4 along the Burkholder line to the public road".
Based on the above, I think it's safe to assume that Nancy and
are one and the same.

There was a John C. "bella hans" LEIBENGUTH who's wagon wheels and runninggear are still kept at one of the Historical Museums, maybe Somerset Co.?? It seems that they used to have bells on their wagons, and if they got in trouble along the highway, and needed help, they had to turn over their bells to the wagoneer that helped them out. Thus the origin of the phrase "I'll be there with bells on". In the case of John C., the kids would hear his bells ring in the distance and would come running in the house shouting "Do komt der bella hans". Peter Leibenguth supposedly was the first to bring a Conestoga Wagon west of
the mountains, and his daughter Elizabeth was the second born in Somerset Co. or so the legends say? I don't know of any connection yet to these folk though? (He was a Swiss chap) These books, I either have, or they're on the way!
5 Sep 1998 Look'n through another page on Pa. troops in the civil war (78th reg.), their chaplain was a Roman Catholic Priest named Richard C. CHRISTY, which the troops (protestant mostly) resented, but soon changed their minds after they got to know him. The page had his portrait and also some of the troops' portraits. (Joachim NOEL married a CHRISTY!).
The John C. "bella hans" LIVENGOOD's wagon wheels and running gear are located in the Spring, Pa. historical society.

From the headstone his birth has be calculated at 21 jan 1723
the parrish records his christening 31 jan 1723. I would say this

John Storm's oldest brother Johan Jacob Sturm and his sister (married to Johan Jacob Brunner) came over on the ship "Mortonhouse" in 1728. Later, the rest of their families came over including Johannes Sturm (after he grew up!) and
Joseph Brunner, the father of the above Johan Jacob Brunner. With that in mind, take a look at the following URL, it's a good one. It's got me all the way back to ~1600 with Sebastian Sturm and his bride "Fraulein Closs".

I went into B.B.O'Keefe's surname page the other night and plugged in LIVENGOOD to search on and a slew of them popped up, NOEL,STORM,SPIES,TANNER,DURBIN,LOGSDON etc. Reading the above pages, took me through the LIVENGOODS and complete circle from Fayette and Greene and Washington Counties, Pa. back to Frederick County,
Md. by way of a common connection with the HUFFMAN/HOFFMAN line.Seems a HUFFMAN was married to Johannes BRUNNER (these were intermarried with STORM lines) and these same HUFFMAN's had property in the middle of TASKER's Choice/Chance also. Tasker's was the original DULANEY purchase which formed and was divided up among many BRUNNER'S,STORMS',HUFFMAN'S etc. and is presently the town of FREDERICK. Some of the DURBIN's were the originals that came over with Lord Baltimore, and some were Catholic's as was Baltimore, if I remember the Durbin page

I have very limited info on Henry Leibenguth - and I don't think he is the same one as you mention (perhaps your Henry's father?).
I have: Henry Leibenguth (b. circa 1776, d ?), son of George Leibenguth (b. 1741 in Pa., died 1814). married Catherine George. Lived in Derry Twp., Westmoreland Co. Pa.
Per Deed Release, 6 July 1837 at Northampton Co. Courthouse: Henry Leibengood of Derry Twp, Westmoreland Co. do acknowledge that Daniel and Philip Leibegood both of Lehigh Twp in Northampton Co Pa. The sum of $850. in full satisfaction for my share and portion due from the estate of my late father, George Leibenguth of Lehigh Twp.
Christopher b. 1796 Northampton Co.
Judy White firstname.lastname@example.org is the source of the marriage and the first 2 listed children.
The last two children are from an email from Kathy Zima (see below).
Northampton Co. Pa. tax records list a Henry Leibenguth
Twp during 1796 & 1797, owing .25 of tax for each year.
There is a Jacob Leibengut, single freeman owing 0.12.6 in tax - Lehigh Twp, 1786.
Most intriguing is form the book: Abstracts of Rev. War. pension Files by Virgil D. White. Vol. II, pub. 1991, National Historic Publishing Co, Waynsboro, TN. page 2077 :
Libengood, Jacob (Leibengod) Pa. Line b. 1756 in Northampton
Married Margaret Chambers on 15 March 1801 in Westmoreland Co. d. 6
1849 in Indiana Co. Pa. Lived with parents when he enlisted and
the War, then he moved to Westmoreland Co., then in 1812 he moved to
Co. Applied for pension on 27 Dec 1842. Widow applied on 17 nov 1854 in
Indiana Co. at age 73 and for BLW on June 12 1858 in Indiana Co. W8 253
In the Pa Archives Series 6 Vol 3: Class Roll of Cpt Friderich Kunss Co. Aprill 18, 1785: group 5 Jacob Leibengood group 6 George Leibengood
My take on all of this: The date of birth stated in the Rev. War pension records (1756) is incorrect (this would be a very common error - especially considering he would have been 94 yrs old when he died). I believe 1764 is the correct date. Jacob, lived with parents during and a short time after serving in the Rev. War along side his father, George. Jacob moved to Westmoreland Co soon after the War (probably late 1780's) where he married Margaret Chambers in 1801, then moved to Indiana Co. in 1812. Younger brother, Henry moved to Westmoreland Co. Pa. soon after Jacob did - perhaps buying Jacob's land(??).
I did some research over the internet and found the following:
1807 tax list, Conemaugh Twp, Indiana Co. Jacob Libengood, yeoman
Index 1820 census - Indiana Co. Jacob Livengood, Conemaugh Twp, (p 10)
Index 1830 census - Indiana Co. Jacob Libengood - Conemaugh
Jacob Libengood 40th P. Volunteers, 11th Reserves - Company E
on 21 June 1861 wounded in action discharged 17 Dec. 1862 (this is the
one you think might be your Henry's son)
28 Nov 1998 Webrene1@aol.com
I got Jacob Leibengood's papers and he is definintely Anise America Libengood's brother. He was shot above the ankle, again in the area of the knee on the other leg, and across the side of the head with the ball exiting his left ear, all in the same battle of "Gaines Mill". He was discharged on account of the wounds, but re-enlisted in the signal corps and again discharged in July 1865. Around 1907, the pension people questioned him on the spelling of his name, and made in return his pension
vouchers because of the mis-spelling "Libengood" which he stated should be "LEIBENGOOD". They were paying him twelve bucks a month at the time. Their own records show as follows: LEYBENGOOD, LEIBENGOOD, LEVENGOOD, LIVENGORD. LIVERGOOD, LIBENGOOD, LIEBENGOOD, LIVINGOOD etc.etc.
I expect John P. and Jonas NOEL'S papers any day now.

Be careful, Blasius of Md.'s daughter Mary Magdalene was married to a Lansinger, and Catherine to an Oboldt. Also, I think this Catherine is the same person as the mysterious Caty, Marilyn Waterman shows them as two distinct persons.
29 Nov 1998 Webrene1@aol.com
Marilyn states that Eliza Anne NOEL was raised by her grand parents John and Mary Maggie NOEL.
Joachim was born 1812 (my mistake), he married Mary A. Christe
wife) in 1832 in Lorretto, Cambria County. Thats the earliest date I
on him in the "west". According to Marilyn, John and Mary were also
their grand-children Emanuel and Cecilia along with Eliza Ann.
29 Nov 1998 Webrene1@aol.com
Christopher of Blossy, died in Wrightsville, Pa. in 1819, was married to Esther ? Info from "Conewago" page 51, "Noel Tree" page 2 and Harve's letter of Sept. 1990 above is from Marilyn's book. This may be the earliest date in the "west". Chris's 4 kids.....not named..... together were entitled to one adult share in Bloss's will.
1) Wrightsville is in York Co. where Rte.30 crosses the Susquehanna River. If this is where Christopher died in 1819, it supports a later move west by the lads.
2) Marilyn shows Joachim married Mary A. Christe on May 7, 1832 St. Vincent's Abbey Latrobe, not Lorretto, my mistake, this is in her book.
Marilyn also states that Blossy owned a freight hauling
MD., maybe Chris was working for him, and died "on the road"? (He was
while hauling Logs from a Newspaper account)

The Noel Family....pages 32 & 33 Question:
York County, Pa. 14 May 1822 Petition of Esther, widow of Christopher Noel. Jacob Rehman appointed guardian of children, all under age 14: Catherine, Eliza Ann. Mary, and William Noel.
The above would be the kids of Chris, mentioned in Blossy's will. Could this be the same Eliza Ann that married Charles Brogan Jr. and lived next door to some Brogan's in Westmoreland Co.
Marilyn's book questions "who were the parents of Eliza Ann Noel"? She states that she thought she was Joachim's daughter and was left out of his will due to Charles problems with the priest in Ohio.
The problem is she states that Eliza was born in 1833 which makes her pretty young for Charles who was in the Mexican War in 1846 and also the Civil War?? Also, I have no evidence that Joachim had a daughter Eliza Ann??
Summary: If Chris's daughter and Charles Jr's wife are the same person, it supports my theory of a later (>1822) move to Westmoreland County???? Could Chris's kids be some that my John cared for?? Remember that Christopher died in Wrightsville, York County in 1819. Could John have brought Chris's kids to Westmoreland County??
Looking further in Marilyn's book, she does state that Eliza Ann (Charles Brogan Jr's wife) was raised by her "grandparents" John and Mary Magdalene. But if she was Chris's kid, they would be her Aunt and Uncle. Do you have anything that shows that Joachim had a daughter Eliza Ann?? I don't.
1) John P. said in an affidavit that he knew he was born in
his Father and Mother, Blausius and Mary told him that's when he was
and he remembered it.No wonder he made Corporal huh.
13 Jan 1999 Webrene1@aol.com
John P. 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. ( there is an other John P Noel)
Note: There is an affidavit by an Alexander Moore that was
sent in from
McGREGOR, IOWA, Dec. 9, 1891 which was interesting.

Jonas had his front teeth kicked out by a mule at Antietam, Had two fingers broken when kicked by a horse. Note: Jonas was hostler for the Colonel at Headquarters. Jonas was a farmer all his life and had different people work for him and he also worked for other people. One of those he worked for was the grandfather of a guy that gave an affidavit. The grandfather also gave an affidavit and his name was Samuel Logsdon.
Jonas said he wound up in the hospital when he got his teeth
out "I was hurt, but not senseless". Said when he got up he ran away
the hospital and returned to his unit. Most of his affidavits refer to
him as "a little fellow". 5'4" 126 lb.
blue eyes (124 lb. when he died also)
There is a sister of J.P. in there named Murphy and another Murphy probably in-law that co-witnessed an affidavit.
Neither of these two could take care of themselves when they
both lived a long life!
14 Jan 1999 Webrene1@aol.com
I mighta been mistaken, since I went through their papers again and only saw first name Henry's. The one exception is that Sylvester Noel and Mathilda Anna Henry were witnesses at Emanuel Noel's wedding. Emanuel married Margaret Logsdon daughter of Raphael Logsdon. Raphael is probably either the son or brother of Samuel Logsdon that John P. Noel worked for at one time as stated in Sam's affidavit. That's all I saw on HENRY'S anyway.
Note: Both John P. and Jonas show in their physical's that
gun-shot wounds. I think there were probably a lot of these went
since neither one of them got any credit toward their pensions due to
wounds. For that matter, neither did Emanuel who got shot in the left

I came across this again and this is the reason that I believe that John Noel who's wife was Petronilla and whose child was Mary b in Jan, bapt the 1st 1804; SP Simon Ruffner and Margaret Griffy was the same John of Derry.
Margaret Noel of Joseph and Margaret Noel, b 25 June, bapt 4 Sept 1809; Sponsors < Simon Ruffner and Margaret Griffy. >
John Noel and Mary Kuhn sponsored Peter Zindorff of George and Anna Zindorff, b 12 Oct, evidently of the preceding year, bapt 24 April 1803. Note! This John could be the son of Nicholas Noel both of whom went to Loretto. Although the Zindorff's interacted with all the Noel's.
Margaret Griffy/Griffin was the mother of Joseph Noel's wife. Patrick, her husband was alive in April 1805.
Nore! This John is still a mystery.
15 Jan 1999 Webrene1@aol.com
The only difference with John & Petronilla is that my stuff comes from BBO's compilation of the records of St. V.'s (Helbron registers). Hers only show a difference in the sponsor. It still doesn't show who this John is??
Maria Noel was baptized Aug.6th 1834 at Saint Simon & St.Jude in Blairsville. (Daughter of Joachim and Anna Criste "ink is faded and unclear") why did they do that? (ref. Harvey in Marilyn's book)
Susan's papers show that Blossy of MD. was in his 80's in the 1830 census which I don't think can be disputed, so we should probably throw out his 1762 b. date eh? He died 1832/3?
Did I send you the estate settlement of Charles Brogan Sr.?? Did you notice there is reference to a John Noel Sr. in there?? In the German tradition, there wouldn't have to be a father and son, this is just to distinguish an older one from any younger one!
Blossy's son Jacob b.ca 1792 was married to Barbara O'bold, daughter of Joseph O'bold. Marilyn's book. (Info. from "Conewage" page 51, "Noel Tree" page 2 and Harve's letter 1990. I believe it was Catherine that also md. an O'boldt
John P. Noel lived at: 318 Oakland Ave., Greensburg, Pa. So did his daughter Rose C. Noel when he died, the house is probably still there?? The priest' name at Most Holy Sacrament Church signed as Rev. Linus Brugger, Pastor
Mrs. Agnes F. Murphy (his sister) testified to his age, saying
it since she was 8 years old when he was born, and also from the Family
Register. There are also Ella J. Murphy and a Margaret Murphy sworn in
and witnessed. I believe we were in contact with a Murphy girl that
about Blasius a few months back, do you remember her?? I think she was
to have a very serious operation, and I haven't heard from her since??

All I know about that lot is that my Joe Weber was born 1855 in Hessen, notheast of Frankfurt am Main, came to the U.S. of A. in 1870. He was supposed to have written letters back and forth with his pap Henry Weber, spouse of Felicitas Stehling Weber. Was naturalized in 1871, and proceded making his thirteen kids. His wifes name was Theresa/Tarissa oldbach/Goldbaugh who was born also im vaterland, sprung from Bernet/Bernard Goldbach/Goldbaugh and Sophia Bott Goldbach/Goldbaugh. Was a laborer and a plummer's helper, I think he worked for his kids. By the way, I think "Uncle Lee"(NOEL) my grand-ma's brother of The Spanish American War fame was a plummer along with the rest of them. They belonged to St. Joseph's Church in Duquesne where I myself was baptized. I also have his picture. NOTE: There is a Felicitas Stehling in the familytreemaker all by herself listed on a CD.

of Sylvester, Placidus and David as some list

chick for many years!
It seems there are two Henry Leibengood's in

I have Sylvester died at "Penn Station, Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania" on the 5th of June 1871.
He died of disease contracted while with Co. K. 11th Pa. Vol. Inf. Regiment.after the Civil War.
Married Ellen Storm the 5th of Oct. 1869 at St. Augustine Church in Cambria County by the Rev. Edward Burns, Pastor of St. Augustine. They had no kids, he may have had nieces? taking care of him, cause he was mighty sick, and refused to see a doctor thinking it wouldn't do him any good even though his mother (Mary Brogan Noel) told him to go. (Per his brother Placidus Noel's testimony).
The last mail I saw on this said one of the two girls was
and I suggested at that time that Ellen was probably his wife ! Sounds
like the same Sylvester to me !

Margaret Chambers is the wife of Jacob Leibengood (My 3rd gr-grandparents). I've been getting tons of info on them
lately, extremely interesting info. Jacob was shot in the back of his shoulder at the battle of Brandywine. (obviously they were surrounded eh!!) He also served as a sergeant in the Westmoreland County Militia for the last time in 1794 at Reynolds fort/or blockhouse? I think that's what it was.

That's correct, Blossy's daughter was Mary Magdalene (Lansinger). And I believe that with the old writing, that Mary M~ Lansinger could easily be misread or miswritten as Mary McLauringen. Note that Lansinger/Linsinger is fairly common in those parts.
