Sr. is my G Grandfather, Jr. is my Grandfather.I am the daugher of William V. Noblit, Sr. (deceased) from Tarpon Springs, Florida.
My family were french huguenots who apparently fled France somewhere between the 1500's - 1600's.They fled to England and Ireland. Then many went on to Pennsylvania. My G Grandfather was from PA.
The name is spelled several ways, as I've seen it.Noblet (french, pronounced "Noblay" long o, long a. Also, Noblitt, Noblett, Noblit.
I don't know of any family in Washington State.Hope this is of some kind of help to you. Let me know if you discover that we are related, as I also have just begun the task of genealogy for the Noblit family.
Look forward to hearing from you, Robin Patascher (Noblit)
