Eureka!! I just found out that my gggrandfather was William Doster Noland. My ggrandfather was Sampson Doster Noland who also went by the name Samuel. His daughter, Violet Rose, was my grandmother. I'd appreciate all the information you can give me on William Doster Noland and his descendants. I'm also trying to find out who William Doster's parents were, but I'm coming up blank. Aren't all Nolands descendants of Pearce Nowland from County Mayo, Ireland? Are you a descendant of William Doster also? That would make us 3rd or 4th cousins???
