Welcome to the Noble County,
I am Denise Wells, the Noble
County coordinator. If you have information that you would like included on this site, please let me know.
April 2, 2012, the NARA
(National Archives and Records Administration), released
the 1940 Census. Be sure
to check it out.
Another indexing project at Family
Search is the Noble County Marriages. I am currently indexing in that project so that it will hopefully become available soon at Family Search!
TROUPE FAMILY LETTER PROJECT: Lots of new
letters being added from the contributor.
Check it out to see life in the late 1800s.
See the link on the right under LETTERS.
RESEARCHERS: PLEASE KNOW THAT I DID
NOT REMOVE ANY MATERIALS THAT WERE FORMERLY ON THIS SITE PRIOR TO WHEN I ADOPTED THE COUNTY. AT THE RIGHT IS A
LINK TO THOSE DOCUMENTS THE FORMER COORDINATOR DONATED TO THE NOBLE COUNTY PUBLIC LIBARY.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR KIND UNDERSTANDING.

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
