Dawn-Marie, Thanks for the message and apologies for the delay in responding.
I'm sure that there is a connection between the families at some point. It is too much of a coincidence that a Noon(e) family from Mount Bellew should have a link with St Helens in Lancashire and New Jersey!
I'm going to see if I can find any further information about the St Helens connection, then I'll get back to you.
