I am looking for information on the pyland family of NC. Cecilia Pyland is believed to have been born in Chatham County in NC about 1810 and died Cecilia Noblin in Pocahontas, AR in 1873. Cecilia married Samuel James Noblin. She was also called Celia. I know nothing of her parentage but a Al Noblin has told me that he believes she was the daughter of Benjamin Pyland b 1777 and anne Copeland b 1788. Robert Pyland b 1739 Isle of Wight, VA was Benjamin's father and Caroline Bell b 1740 VA his mother. It is thought Robert 's father was a pylant rather than a pyland.
