Topic: Nobles in Fermanagh

Posts Date

My ancestor John Noble was born in Fermanagh in 1847-1848 and left Ireland at age 4, unaccompanied by his parents. He landed in New York on the S/S Sidons in August of 1853 and was raised by a Catholic couple named Anthony and Margaret Scollon in Meriden, Connecticut. Family legend says his mother was named Rose, that she stayed behind in Ireland, and died of pneumonia. Online records have been of no help. I'm at a dead end in tracing John's roots in Fermanagh, any ideas would be gratefully received.

When I Googled Mary Elizabeth Wilson born in Belfast Feb 3, 1867, James Noble's inquiry came up
regarding his ancestor, John Noble, born in Fermanagh in 1847-48. I would like to know if James Noble is somehow connected to Mary Elizabeth Wilson who came to US 1886 ( abt) and married in
1887 in NYC
