I have seen several genealogies that list about six children born to William Noel and Sarah Simmons Noel (married in Mecklinburg Co VA, ca. 1771) in Caswell Co. NC. These are Ephraim Peake Noel (who ends up in MO), John R., Jesse, James, and two daughters. However, I have also seen genealogies that list different children of a William Nowell/Noel/ Noel married to a Sarah Simmons, and also from Mecklenburg CO. VA; these children are: Fielding, born ca. 1773 in VA, Samuel, William, James, Foster, and Polly.
Can anyone resolve my perplexity?
