I found this 10-page document in a “Noble” folder at the Kentucky Historical Society, located at 100 West Broadway, Frankfort, KY, 40601-1931
It was not signed and had no indication as to the name of the author or of the owner of the document. I believe that the original source of this document is the O’Connor files.
I made a copy of the document, but it is hard to read. I am therefore going to retype the complete document as a Word-For-Windows document, so that I can make it available for others to read and use.
If anyone finds the owner or author of this document, please let me know.

Since it was unsigned and placed in a public file, I am going to assume that it was intended to be distributed freely for public use.

I can personally verify only small amounts of the data contained herein, so use it for research, but verify the data if you can.
I will type in Times New Roman font, and in upper and lower case as it was in the original document. I may add my own comments in italics and within parentheses. I may change some fully capitalized names to first letter capital only.
I may change punctuation simply because I can’t keep myself from doing so.

When I cannot make out a word, I will substitute “???” for that which I cannot read.

I will make obvious corrections when I can, such as changing “marriedor” to “married or”, or breaking up long sentences.
I tried to keep on one page what the original document had on one page, but my lack of skills with Microsoft Word’s controls prevented that.
It appears to have been typed on a typewriter rather than a computer since there are added comments typed between lines.
James Robinson, Jr.

Husband of Lena Campbell

Now they had reached a section, where fishing, hunting and all conditions were favorable to the wayworn traveler, and the following persons who were led by Nathan Noble and his wife Virginia Neace, looked about for the most ideal location to build their winter huts, Nathan Noble settled on Lost Creek. Enoch Noble on Leatherwood, William Noble on Buckhorn, John Noble on Bloody Creek, while the other Noble boys went on to Missouri, one was later found where Anniston Alabama is now located.

There were others not mentioned in the above group, whose names I will not omit, that came in that early caravan, they were Mary, Millie and Patsy Noble, sister of Nathan Noble, Hannah Fugate born about 1753, and her death recorded in

Frankfort on Aug. 10th 1853, age 100, came with her son, Flint Fugate. He was later married to Mary Noble. Henly Fugate was her son. Andy Miller who later married Patsy Noble, and a Mr. Watts, whose name so as I have been able to understand,

was George W. Watts, and he married Millie Noble.

Mrs. Virginia Noble had two brothers and one sister, named Charles and Henry Neace, and Mrs. Engle, that were mentioned as having settled in Perry Co., but we must remember that as early as 1797 or 1798, there was no Perry Co.

There were others mentioned in this group, whose given names that I have secured, the Saunders, Guinns, and McIntosh family evidently came with then, or followed immediately thereafter, and intermarried into the Noble, Neace and Miller family.

After the above families were located, Nathan Noble decided to leave the camp where his child and the mother has been located on Cockrill Fork and move on down to Lost Creek, and in doing so, the child was exposed to the weather, developing a cold and died. This child was the first of fifteen, and was named Nathan Noble Jr., but since there were so many children, it was decided to name No. 9 Nathan Noble Jr., and he became a man and together with several brothers and sisters he followed his uncles into Missouri, and lived to be an old man, and died and was buried there. He was a veteran of the Southern Confederacy, and served with many others of his near relatives.

ALEXANDER NOBLE MARRIED a MISS GUINN, or as it sometimes Guynn. In Virginia, he sad a son and daughter, their descendants live in Washington D. C., and have held positions of trust and honor in the cities in which they live.

KATE NOBLE, and her husband, Major Henry Stubblefield, lived on the Shenandoah River, in Frederick Co., Virginia, their estate extending from Lord Fairfax Estate to Castleman’s Ferry, giving a commanding view of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

JOHN NOBLE, the youngest son of George Noble, married a MISS BERRYHILL, and had two daughters who lived in Iowa. Their names were Anna and Emily Berryhill. I have no record of who they married or of their families.


Old Thomas Noble Sr. was born in Scotland 1704, in New Mill Banffshire. He attended school at Keith, until he was eighteen years of age, at which time he left there and entered Aberdeen Seminary where he studied for three years.

He left the Seminary in 1738, and decided to come to America, arriving in Maryland, he soon became a noted tobacco trader, and within a short time he was selling to the Scotch Importers, all the tobacco shipped into that country.

Upon returning to his native land to visit his parents, he met, wooed and wed Miss Mollie Gilbert, and they returned to America, and settled in Virginia, upon a farm, facing that of Lawrence Washington, one of the finest in Virginia.

There were four children born to these parents, whose names, in order were, George, Nancy, Elizabeth and Thomas, and these children were educated, grew to manhood and womanhood in the Eastern part of Virginia, and married into prominent families.

George Noble the first born, married a very wealthy lady named Marry Anne Thomas Alexander, her father was honored by having the city of Alexandria Va. named for him.

The large estate which they inherited was sold and they moved to Frederick Co., Virginia, where he purchased the home known as Long Marsh. Here he became a prosperous farmer and trader, living upon the banks of the beautiful river, Sheandoah, he reared a family of five children, three sons and two daughters, who were all married into prominent families, and they are recorded according to age as follows.

1. Mary Anne Noble m. Edward Swearenger.

2. George Noble Jr. m. a Miss Saunders.

3. Alexander Noble m. a Miss Guinn.

4. Kate Noble m. Major Henry Stubblefield.

5. John Noble m. a Miss Berryhill.

Mary Anne Noble and her husband, Edward Swearenger, lived near the home of her father George Noble Sr. who gave them five hundred acres of beautiful land, and they were noted for having one of the most attractive homes and many slaves.

At the death of George Noble Sr. he was buried on the old homestead, at Long Marsh, Va.

George Noble Jr. married a Miss Saunders, and had several children, who were determined to blaze their was into the unknown wilderness of the west, their destination was Missouri, and some of the children were successful in reaching that State, but others were less fortunate- Nathan Noble and his wife while enroute, passed thru the Pound gap, over into the mountains of Kentucky, across the country to Quicksand, down that stream and across onto Troublesome Creek, and there Mrs. Nathan Noble became the mother of her first born, the pioneers were forced to stop, and here they pitched camp, and the group looked about for a place to spend the winter, as it was now late fall, and great forest fires had caused much destruction to the uninhabited territory thru which they had passed.


Included in the group of Virginians who came into Kentucky in 1798, were the brothers of Old Nathan Noble, and some of the brothers and sisters of his wife, Virginia Neace.

We have given you a history of George Noble, and his descendants, he being the son of old Thomas Noble, but we are unable to even tell you who his sisters married or anything of their descendants. I can only say their names were Nancy and Elizabeth.
Thomas Noble, M.D. (son of Old Thomas Noble, originally of Scotland) was b. in Frederick Co., Virginia, June 13th 1762, d. in Bellevue, Campbell Co., Kentucky, Feb. 14th 1817. His wife was Elizabeth Clare Sedgwick, b. 1764, d. in Boone Co., Kentucky, Mar. 12th 1830, and was buried there.

Dr. Thomas Noble was a noted Doctor in Virginia, and Kentucky, and practiced medicine for many years, and as his brother George was very wealthy, he gave the Doctor a fine farm of four hundred acres and adjoining the Long Marsh Plantation.

He lived upon the farm until 1799, as a wealthy farmer and slave holder, and a noted physician and surgeon, at that time he moved to Campbell Co., Kentucky, where he remained the last 18 years of his life.

Claibourne Noble’s Descendants

We don’t know whether his name is spelled Claiborn, Claibourne, Clayborn, Claybourn, Claybourne, or what. We haven’t found any documents with his name on them yet. He was son of Jackson Noble, who was son of old Nathan Noble.
I use a little bit different numbering system. It saves space and tells you who the parent is. For example:

1. is the parent and has chileren 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, etc.

1.3 has children 1.3.1, 1.3.2, 1.3.3 etc.

Just take off the last number and you have the parent’s number. Example, for child, take off the 3 and the parent is at 1.8.6. Give it a little time to sink in and you will see that it is easy.

Another way to look at it is:

1. Is the first person on the chart.

1.1 is his child (so would be 1.2 or 1.3 or 1.4 etc.)

1.1.1 is his grandchild (so would be 1.3.5 or 1.6.2) is his great grandchild (so would be or
It also makes it extremely easy to add children.
