We are trying to find the parents of Leo Noles, born in 1829 in Perry County, Ohio. My uncle recently had a YDNA test done to help with our search, only to find that we likely descended from a Whitney line, and his DNA results are likely due to a non paternal event. Does anyone have any information that might be helpful or any clues about a possible Noles/Whitney connection in the past? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!
Dear Ms. Cole,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
Since birth and death records contain names of the subject’s parents, we suggest that you request a birth and death record search from the Perry County Probate Court and/or search the Ohio, County Death Records, 1840-2001 FamilySearch index. Also, please review the FamilySearch Research wiki for Ohio Vital Records.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your family research!
