Richer's 1939 book (containing itself no evidence on this matter) does not constitute prmary evidence for events in the 1700s.Sixty-year-old fiction remains fiction.
I have not studied Washington Co, PA Noffsingers and Wises carefully, but it appears that Frederick Wise lived beyond the 1784 death of Peter Noffsinger of VA.If Frederick Wise lived longer than Peter Noffsinger of VA, then Wise's widow did not marry Peter Nof d.1784 VA.Moreover, Peter Nof d.1784 VA never resided in Washington Co, PA. The widow Wise may have married some other Noffsinger, likely descended from Rudolph.
I am not certain that Peter Nof of VA did NOT marry Sophronia Wise, hence the reason for my post, to see if anybody has evidence to substantiate this popular myth.
For those Noffsingers whom I have studied carefully (and there are many among the descendants of Peter d.1784), I find that most published genealogies are short on evidence and long on errors.My book _Stoner Brethren_, 1993, contains many examples of documented fact to replace popular fiction. My Stover book, out next month, contains many more such examples.
Genealogy without valid documentation is mythology. Some genealogists are content with mythology.
