The tree below comprises six generations beginning with my maternal grandfather, Frank Noland. It does not take you back the additional generations to Pierce Noland. To do so would add additional width to the chart and, and more importantly, James, Ledstone and Jesse were brothers. The ancestry of each of them is identical and to include those charts behind each of their names would add redundant information and unnecessarily add length to the chart. You can see the tree of the earliest Nolands by clicking here.
To learn more about the persons in this tree, if you are on a full-sized laptop or desktop computer, you can click on their name in the tree and you will be taken to what information I have about that individual. If you are looking at this post on a smart phone or a tablet, clicking on the name will probably not work. Therefore, I have created a linking list following the tree, so use that.
I do not have information about all of these ancestors, but linking to them will tell you what I do have. Please note that although James, Ledstone and Jesse were brothers, differences in their ages and times at which they fathered my ancestors, cause them to fall at different levels in the chart. Thus, Ledstone and Jesse are my great5 grandfathers, but James is my great4 grandfather. Also, Daniel Nowland and Henrietta Smallwood, parents of James, Ledstone and Jesse, appear in this chart and will also appear in the chart of older generations noted above.
