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.

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?
