According to FamilyTree DNA, my results for the Y-Refine25to37(Y-DNA26-37 Markers) are expected on 03/03/2010 - so we will have to wait until then to see if Pat and I match any further!

I have now ordered the next set of DNA tests - the Y 25-37 one. Pat Noble has results for 37 markers and since we match on 25 of 25, it would be even better if we could match on 37 of 37!!

Terry steered me in this direction, and I'm glad he did. Thank you for letting me join. Terry and I have years invested in trying to trace our family before 1800. I'm glad to be included in the group.

This is great! If we're persistent, I think we'll start making more of these connections and find where our genes (and ancestors) crossed. Cavan, Fermanagh, Monaghan and even Longford counties are not that big an area -- our families were obviously all related and not far apart.

It would appear that in fact Pat Noble and I match on 25 of 25 markers!! Wow! Maybe all hope is not lost in finding those elusive Irish ancestors!

How exciting for both of you! Have you both put your DNA results into That is a good way to compare.

I think my Andrew Noble was the brother of John Noble b 19 Aug 1817 in Maguiresbridge who died in Ontario in 1861 according to an family tree. My DNA matches the Y-DNA kit at Family Tree DNA's Noble and Nobles Group Y-DNA member results for item #11. The online DNA kit record for John's line is considerably shorter than my DNA kit result, but the available portion matches item for item. My results are also extremely close to a number of other kit results there. I've written to Joseph Noble, the host of the Noble and Nobles group, and to the owner of the Ancestry family tree, but so far I've not heard back from either.

My Noble records are posted at Rootsweb WorldConnect in a dataset called pnoble66. Search for George Patrick Noble b 23 Mar 1923 -- my father -- and you'll come upon my Carr surname database rather easily.

My Andrew Noble was living in Enniskillen on Fort Hill ST in 1862 along with my great-grandfather Robert Noble. Robert married Mary Anne McDermott in 1874 and had a handful of kids, including my grandfather Robert James Noble. Young Robert went to sea, as did his older brother George. Robert started out on Anchor Lines of Glasgow, then went to New York and switched to the Panama Canal Steamship and Railroad Co, making runs to the Canal Zone during its construction and beyond. He met my grandmother in Baltimore, worked as a chef at hotels and resorts, and died in Norfolk, Va in 1951. My Dad served in Australia during WWII and lived most of his married life in suburban Washington, DC, where I was raised.

I'm excited to think these two lines might be merged based on DNA evidence. Are you a descendant of John's line? Can you help me tie things together?

John, Thanks for the invite. Maybe together we can get linked.
Comment by Michael W. Noble on July 18, 2009 at 10:18am
Hello John....Thanks for the invitation. I believe my Irish ancestors came from County Cavan but probably have links to County Fermanagh and County Longford as well.
