   The Nolands are said to have removed from Maryland to Virginia. They settled early in Kentucky County, afterwards the State of Kentucky. In 1786 Henry Noland's was one of the 131 names signed to a petition to divide Lincoln County into Lincoln, Madison, and Mercer. Of his large family, four sons and three daughters settled in Platte County, Missouri. John W. Noland lived two miles beyond the old "Cane Spring Church," built in 1803, on the Red River Road. His house is still standing and in the rear is the Noland grave yard.

   * Note by Mrs. J. B. Noland. - Andrew Broaddus, Sr., was with Kit Carson on his first trip across the plains to Santa Fe. Broaddus pulled a gun to shoot buffalo and shot off his own arm. He begged that it be cut off but no one had the heart to do it. He suffered intensely for a few days, then made a saw from an old knife and sawed it off. He took a wagon pin, heated it, and seared it himself, so as to stop the flow of blood. He got well, came back to Madison County, Kentucky, and reared a family (above Bible record. He was the father of Hon. E. J. Broaddus (dec'd) of Kansas City, Judge of Supreme Court, and of Mrs. Nathan Noland of Madison County, Kentucky, (now dead), and grand-father of Jesse B. Noland of Richmond, Kentucky.

  John Dodson and his family (see page 35 of this issue) settled in Freedom Township, Blair County (then Bedford County), Pennsylvania, about 1800. Whence did they come? The librarian of the Pennsylvania State Library suggests that they may have come from Maryland. What was the name of his wife? Who were his parents; his brothers and sisters?
