This is a little far out but accounts for the Noels who were at Sportsman's Hall, St. Vincent's, Latrobe, PA in the early 1800's using the records and Oral History of several families. These Noel's were once thought to be the children of Nicholas Noel who moved to Loretto. This does not seem to be the case and they are unaccounted for in any line.
[ Since the writing of this Page a list of all the Noel's in the French Army in the Colonial War has been found and there is no Adam Noël listed or any names similar to the Noel's at Sportsman's Hall in the early 1800's, "Les Combattants Francais' 1905. Also it has been suggested that my Joseph Noel could have been Adam Joseph as he named his first son Adam Peter and to carry this back to Blasius he could have been named Adam Blasius which would concur with the oral history. However all of this information was in the lost records of the Conewago Chapel.]
1. A European Noel whose six sons came with the French
under Louis Marie de Noailles
in the American Revolution and may have fought their last battle at Yorktown, VA in 1783.

2. Sylvester Noel - Stayed in Baltimore by oral history of the Noel's who lived in Baltimore in 1946.
2. Abraham Noel
2. Simon Noel
2. Alban Noel (maybe Adam)
born 1750 if he was 25 when Joseph was born
At Sportsman's Hall
3. Mary Magdelina Noel maybe b. 1774 & John Henry b. 1777 At Sportsman's Hall
3. Joseph Noel B. 1775 if 25 when Adam was born & Margaret Griffen At Sportsman's Hall

Noel the son of Peter Noel of Adams County.
Dear Dominic, I am the great great grand son of Adam Noel and I live on the farm John T. Noel established in Scott county Iowa. . It seems to me that the Noel history reflects the history of this great country and can serve as a model for future generations to study and make connections with. I spent two years in Germany when I was in the USArmy and traveled to the area in France where our ancestors came from. But at that time I did not know how to connect up with people to do the research on the family. The oral tradition in our family has it the the Noel family were from royal blood and that is why they considered it their duty to be good members of the community. They also were very musical and played and sang or taught music to others. I would be interested to see if this talent is present in the various branches of the family.

Dear Sergeant Noel: Our pastor, Father Joseph Weidmann ask me to answer your letter of May 5, 1974 regarding your ancestors. The enclosed zeroxed copies of the only records we have on the Noel and Stoltz families will aid you in your search, we hope. There is a long tradition here that the Noel family is related to Vicomte de Noailles, brother-in-law of Lafayette, lieutenant Col. of Regiment Soissonais at Yorktown. The American family shortened the name the name to Noel because the French pronunciation sounds like Noel in English. This family also wrote the name Noll. Father Damien Noll, T.O.R. of St. Francis College may help you in this part of your search. Noailles is a great French family that traces its decent to the 13th century. Louis-Marie Noailles and Lafayette married sisters. The Vicomte's name is found among the French settlers at Montrose, Pa.
Another note of interest: A skilled wagoner named Nicholas Noel brought Prince Gallitzin's possessions from Taneytown, Md. to McGuire's Settlement in the autumn of 1799 in a two-horse prairie schooner in which were stored coffee, alter wine, flour, a bed, a bureau, an alter, vestments, sacred vessels, and about a hundred books. (Daniel Sergeant: Mitri.) You will find the book "Mitri" in the N.Y. Public Library.
This as far as we can go in your search. I hope it will help you.

DALLAS E NOEL, an engineer on the Pennsylvania Railroad, was born in Ligonier valley, Westmoreland county, Pennsylvania, a son of W M and Catherine Noel. The progenitor of the Noel family in this country was the great-great-grandfather of Dallas E Noel, who was aide decamp in the French Army, and relinquished his title in France and emigrated to America. The great-grandfather and grandfather of Dallas E Noel came from Harrisburg.
The line is like this:
Father - William b 1848 Ligonier
GF - Charles b 1829 From Adams CO.
G-GF - Jacob From Adams CO.
2G-GF - Andrew Conewago
3G-GF - John From Europe
4G-GF - Joseph From Europe
We know Andrew did not come from Europe but the oral history could be
true since it states, "The progenitor of the Noel family in this country"
which is Joseph.
