I am looking for information on William Noakes Jr. of Lincoln co., Ky.; born 24 July 1825. I do not know who his mother was. He married Mary Elizabeth Woods in 1846 in Ky. They came to Illinois sometime prior to 1855 and settled in Warren co., Il. They had 8 children-whose names follow:Robert (dec child), William (killed in the Civil War), Willie, Mary Ellen (my ggrandmother), Mina, Mattie, Charles, and David. Their mother, Mary Elizabeth Woods Noakes died 24 June 1863 in Kirkwood,Illinois. William then married a widow named Minerva Rezner, who already had 4 children. William and Minerva then had 7 children of their own. They are: Josephine, Eunice, Almeda, Rebecca, George, Ira, and Ollie. This is all I know about the Noakes. I would love to find out anything I could about the early Noakes of Linclon co., Ky., can someone help me? Thanks.
