The story is recorded in my family book, The Noble and Rader Families of Mercer County, Illinois.
Melissa Noble Fleming was a very old woman when she related this story to the author, Robert Danford.
This was a privately published work in 1967.
Mr. Danford states in the book that the story was passed down to her from her parents and grandparents.
My Noble family have been nothing but Protestants since the 1770's. They were never ones to stay in one place very long. They became pioneer settlers where ever they went and took high offices. They were held in high regard in their communities.
North Carolina shows William Noble with 1600 acres of land in 1772. Quite a bit of land for that time as well as today.
Will Noble is my brick wall.
A William Noble did come over to Virginia on the Elizabeth Ann, a Jacobite as listed in the captains log.
Many people headed into the southern colonies after landing in Virgina due to virgin lands and wide open spaces.
Is he mine? Need to do more research but he is not found anywhere in Virgina after landing. Hope to get to Raleigh, N.C. to do more digging but that is a long way from Texas.
Also hope to get to Scotland someday.
Take care, thanks for the reply,
