The former Coordinator,
CJ Whan, moved her Noble County records here BEFORE I became the County Coordinator.
The first settler to appear within the present limits of Noble County was Joel Bristol, who arrived in April, 1827, with his wife, and the six orphan children of Mrs. Bristol's sister, whose name was Tibbott. Mr. Bristol settled in what is now Noble Township, this county at the time being a part of Allen County, with the county seat at Fort Wayne, and it was not until nine years later that the present county of Noble was organized. For several years after the arrival of the Bristols there were but few immigrants. John Knight, who came in 1829, was probably the second, and in the following year Isaiah Dungan, Levi Perry and Richard Stone appeared. more...Pioneer Days
