Your information is so helpful.The letter did not give any other info on the Nolens.L.J. Stewart did refer to Susannah as "Suzie".She told of the Bristers and Hickmans. And, that William and Aaron were her fathers cousins.(William B. Bristers was a son of Rosannah). I am a decendant of William B.
In Lawrence Co, there is part of an estate settlement of William Neyland.This info I posted on the Neyland genforum.If you do not already have a copy, please take a look see.
The Stephen and Susannah Smallwood Nolen did have a daughter named Susannah, always wondered if this could have been a mistake and perhaps was to be Rosannah.
Who was the William Noland in Copiah that married Alley Jackson?The Copiah courthouse only had a deed as to when they sold property.Also, in the Cop.CH, was an estate of a James Noland abt 1832.
It has been interesting. Thanks ever so much. --Geraldine
