Buck and Caroline Noles (Knowles)
I am looking for information on the Noles family of Louisiana and Oklahoma. The family spelling of the surname was Noles in Louisiana and they later changed the spelling to Knowles after moving to Oklahoma.
Buck Noles is listed with his mother, Caroline Noles and family on the 1880 Census. Listed among the siblings are: Horace, Tucker, Edna, Belle and Dick. The Father,(unnamed), is listed on this Census with a birtplace of North Carolina. I have seen other records where his birthplace is listed as Tennessee. I am searching for the Name of Buck's father, husband to Caroline 1848. I would also like to find information prior to this date on the family and madian name of Caroline. She later married Issac Egan and had other children. Their great grand children may still be living in Louisianna.
When Buck moved to Oklahoma in 1900, he changed his name to Thomas Knowles and Married Gertrude Knowles in Davis,Hennipen, Oklahoma in 1901. Their children were Hattie Mae, Margarette, King, Hepsie, and Irene. They are listed on the 1900-1920 Census. I have information on all of their descendents. Thomas died around 1920 in Oklahoma. Horace Knowles lived in Boley, Ok. Caroline is shown on the 1910 Census living in Oklahoma with Horace and his two children Oliver and Ollie. I would like any information available on living descedents of the Knowles (Noles) (Egan) family who may be living in Louisiana,Tennessee,or other locations. They would possibly be gr-grandchildren of the siblings of Horace and Thomas.
