I saw in your response to Rus Holmes his reference to McSherrystown and remembered purchasing a book at a used book store many years ago titled "Bicentennial 1763-1963 McSherrystown, Pa." I bought the book because there was a John Seyfert present at the killing of Dudley Digges in 1752. Have not determined where he came from.
The book has a history of the area - Indians of Conewago,

Churches, etc. The

Do you have any information about NOELs who lived in Wyandot Co., OH? There was Michael NOEL who married Anastasia ARNOLD in Frederick Co., MD, and then went to OH. I believe he may be the grandfather of my g-grandfather, Clement NOEL.
16 Mar 1999 1 Dominic <firstname.lastname@example.org>
I did not know that Michael Noel went to Ohio. I would be very interested in his story since I believe he is the brother of my g-grandfather Joseph Noel from MD., the son of Blasius.
What I have is that Michael married Anastasia Arnold (born 11-11-1804 died 4-17-1873) on 5-27-1823. Michael was the son of Blasius, who was the son of Peter from Europe, the son of Joseph from Europe.
The sons of John Noel also went to Ohio before this time. Be sure to read my 'Noel History Page'. The Main Page is at:
The link 'My Line' shows Michael near the bottom.
If you do not know if this is the same Michael, his records are at St Joseph's at Tanneytown, MD.

Michael and Anastasia NOEL did go to Wyandot Co., OH. They had a son, George Joseph, whose son Clement Oscar is my g-grandfather.
Other members of the Arnold family also went to

Peter Noel was full blood Choctaw. His wife Lorinda
and 1/2 Chickasaw. It is said that Peter was
Peter and Lorinda had 4 children that we know
Robert Noel born 1880, Edmund Noel born August 26, 1889,
I have a letter regarding the enrollment number given to the Noel's for the Dawes Commission Roll. It says that Edmund's parents were deceased before he was put on the roll at 14 years of age - Robert was 23. Edmund's roll number is 14122 and Robert's is 14121. I was told that if a person had mixed blood (Choctaw and Chickasaw) that the individual had to pick one tribe or the other to enroll as and it was decided the children of Peter and Lorinda would enroll as Choctaw.
On the Choctaw by Blood Census Card - #5579 - Edmund and Robert are listed as being 1/4 Choctaw. This is an error. Edmund and Robert should have been listed as full blood Choctaw. Ben Noel is on Census Card #5437. Mary Brown is on Census Card #7463. Both Ben and Mary are listed as being full blood Choctaws.
Edmund Noel married Victoria Mathews. Their children were: Mary F. Noel, Joann Noel, Wanema Noel, Wayne Noel, Lawrence Noel, and Leo Noel. (No birthdates for these individuals)
Mary F. Noel married Dallas S. Horn. Their children
Vicki Horn, Monty Horn, Lawrence Horn, Gerald Horn, Brady
Horn. (I have birthdates for these people but can't
give them out

Wish I had more but that's all for now.

My paternal grandfather Michael A. Noel was born in Hungary between 1896-1898. I have to find my father's birth cert. for the exact date. He married Margaret Ebner, who also was born in Hungary. I know that Margaret Ebner was from Grodd Jetsca Village in Hungary, perhaps my grandfather was also. My father's name was Frank M. Noel, he was born in Philadelphia in 1918.

Elvira. There is a
discrepancy in the age of Samantha as shown on the 1850

I found your name in the surname index for ACGS. I am wondering if you have any information on the family of Samantha Griffin who married Joshua Stowe 31 Dec 1838 in Windsor. They had three children: Celia, Harmon and Eunitia.
I have little in the way of information on the Griffins,
on the Stowe line.

I have been looking for a Patrick Griffin and Molly McBride. Is it at all possible that it was Molly O'Brien instead of McBride?
Or that your Molly should be McBride? I have both born about 1725 in Ireland and came over on a ship to USA. I have children Catherine and Patrick and John and Ann. Catherine was born about 1745. Patrick died about 1811 in Doylestown, Bucks County, PA. Catherine married Simon Ruffner in January of 1771. Please let me know if it is at all possible that they are the same person.
06 Nov 1998 A Harvey Noel who was in line with my g-grandfather Joseph did all the work. At the time, since my Jacob and his Adam were born 34 years apart, he did not think they had the same father because the mother was different. Since then he learned that they are half-brothers. He said that he did look for marriage and death records but found none. I think he may have misspelled the mothers names or did not look to far because he was just at the start of his search, new nothing except that the name of his g-g-grandfather was Joseph. My dad sent him to St Vincent's. He has done a lot of work, and this work is in the basement of the Library at Davenport, Iowa. I have seen some of it but was not interested in genealogy at the time.
The Noel's in Frederick County, Va is interesting could they be of the Cornelius Noel family?
Also I do have the early records of ST V's, 'Father

Here’s what I found from Noels when I went to Winchester VA in September 1998. The courthouse has two sections; one for Frederick County - which was what it was before the name change. The other section is Winchester - after the name change. I spent time on the Noels in the old Frederick County side and not the newer Winchester side. Was looking up some marriages on another line on the Winchester side and they were more current. I try to check as many names as I can wherever I am cause you never know who you will stumble into. Then I make a note of it and file it in “my box”. Some day I may find I need this info and won’t remember where it was. Thought I would share it with you.

I am a descendent of James NOEL md Mary Ann "Polly" CLARK 02 Dec 1841. They had several children but I am descended from their daughter, Susan Lucy NOEL (md John D. TAYLOR). Susan had a brother named Thomas
Jefferson NOEL who resided in Pennsylvania in the early 1900's. Do any of these names show up in your family tree?
21 Mar 1997 Helen Ormsby <heleno@Alaska.NET>
The following are all the people named NOEL who are listed in the index of
the 1860 census of Adams County, Pennsylvania. The number after each name
denotes where they are located in the census. For example, in Franklin
Township, John Noel and Martha Noel both have the number 070. This means
they are both in the same household. In Mount Pleasant Township, Francis
Noel has number 497 and Jacob Noel has 498. This probably means that they
have adjoining property.

I believe that my Noel's settled in VA., yes you have early Noel Lineage
correct. The following is my line as I know it, I will go just up to
Vawter's marriage because I am sure you aren't interested in my line later
on. I have also been told that their is a Noel Book in the library, and I
have a e-mail correspondent that has seen this book. It just may help in your
I have received two versions of Noel lineage, and I have found out that as in
any "early" lineage books there are alot of misinformation. The first Noel
Lineage goes like this:
1. Passchier Nowe, b.
m. Stijntje Jaspers, March 19, 1583
2. Jacob Nowe, b. Abt. `1599 Leiden, SH Netherlands
3. Cornelis Noel, b. Nov. 8, 1623 Leiden SH Netherlands
5.Margaret Noel, b. abt 1714 in Essex VA
The second lineage information is a little different
2. Pieter Noel, b. Ardennes France
3. Jacob Noel, b. abt 1599 Sedan, Ardennes, France
4. Cornelius Noel, b. Nov. 8, 1623, Leiden SH
5. Daniel Noel, b.
6.Margaret Noel, born abt. 1714 in Essex Co., Va
You will see that everything in both lineages match up on
