      Oct. 31, 1765 - The Charles Co., Md. administration account of Peter Wood shows that Wood's estate made a payment of 0/4/6 to Zephaniah Noel [sic.]

      Comment: Looking at this record in the first source cited, the handwriting does look like "Noel" and not "Noee."

      Aug. 1768 - Robert Horner vs. Zephaniah Noe. Debt. Agreed. [docket item only]
      Source: Charles Co., Md. Circuit Court, Liber Q No. 3, p. 303.

      Aug. 1769 - Zephaniah Nooe and Bennet Nooe witness a Charles Co., Md. deed by Robert Horner of extensive personal property pursuant to an earlier prenuptual agreement signed by Horner when he m. Ann Clagett, dau. of Dr. Gustavus Brown, and widow of Samuel Clagett.

      Dec. 1771 - Zaphaniah Noe is listed twice on a list of debts owed to Robert Horner in Charles Co., Md.
      Source: Charles Co., Md. Circuit Court, Liber S No. 3, Page 227-8.
      Comment: This is an unusual document. Horner is "languishing in jail," and lists all his property, and gives the Charles Co. Sheriff power over it. The record mentions his misfeasance in connection with the property of Ann Brown Clagett. See the Aug. 1769 record above.

      Mar. 1772 - Andrew Cooksey [sic; Simpson] vs. Zephaniah Noe and John Cooksey. Trespass. Non est. [docket item only]

      Aug. 1773 - Darby Lux vs. Basil Noe and John Noe, of Charles Co., planters, special bail of Bennett Noe. In Aug. 1772, Darby Lux recovered a judgment against Bennett Noe in the sum of 6/4/6 current money and 747 lbs. of tobacco for his costs and charges. Basil Noe and John Noe were security for Bennett Noe in this case. Bennett Noe did not pay the judgment to Lux and in Mar. 1773 Lux commenced an action against Basil Noe and John Noe to execute on the judgment against them. In June 1773, the Sheriff served notice of this proceeding on John Noe, before Zephanaiah Noe and Belain Posey, two good and lawful men of his bailywick. The language of the Sheriff's return concerning service on Basil Noe is not clear but it appears to say that Basil was not found (or at least, not served.)
      The case came on to be heard at the Aug. 1773 Court. John Noe offered no defense and the Court ordered that Darby have execution against both Basil and John for the 6/4/6 current money and 747 lbs. of tobacco, plus an additional 273 lbs. of tobacco for Darby's costs and charges in this proceeding.

In May 1771, Bennett Nooe signed a note to Joseph Simms/Sims or order in the amount of 12 pounds current money of Maryland, due Aug. 1 next ensuing. Simms assigned the note to Barnes & Ridgate and Bennett was given notice of the assignment, also in May 1771. Not having been paid, Barnes & Ridgate brought suit in Dec. 1772. The note was produced in court; Bennett signed his name to the note and the note was witnessed by Zephaniah Nooe.
      John Nooe and Zephaniah Nooe of Charles Co. appeared in Court and became pledge and security for Bennett. The case came on to be heard at the Nov. 1773 Court and Bennett admitted that he owed the debt. The Court ordered judgment for Barnes & Ridgate in the sum of 12 pounds current money, plus 291 lbs. of tobacco for their costs and charges.

      1783 - Zephaniah Noe is on the 1783 Personal Property Tax List of Culpeper Co., Va. (Polls: 1; Slaves: 6.)
      Source: Fothergill, Augusta B., and Naugle, John M., "Virginia Tax Payers, 1782-1787," p. 93.

      1784 - John Strode and Anne his wife, of King George Co., Va., lease 4 tracts of land in Culpeper Co., Va. to Zephaniah Nooe, of "Charles Co., Md.", for 90 years: 445 acres, 40 acres, 200 acres.
      Source: Culpeper Co., Va. Deeds, Book H, p. 294.
      Comment: A 1784 reference to Charles Co., Md. is puzzling; the last record we have of Zephaniah in Charles Co. is a decade earlier. Although the lease says 4 tracts of land, acreages are given for only 3 tracts

      1784-1790 - Zephaniah Nooe is in the 1784-1790 Personal Property Tax Lists of Stafford Co., Va., as follows:
      1784 - Zephaniah Nooe 2 (8 whites, 1 black, 2 horses, no cattle)
      1785 - Zephaniah Nooe (1 white, 4 blacks, 4 horses, 1 cattle)
      1786 - Zephaniah Nooe (1 white, 4 blacks, 4 horses, 1 cattle)
      1787 - Zephaniah Nooe (3 whites, 5 blacks, 2 horses, 2 cattle)
      1788 - Zephaniah Nooe (1 white, 4 blacks, 2 horses, no cattle)
      1789 - Zephaniah Nooe (1 white, 5 blacks, 2 horses, 3 cattle)
      1790 - Zephaniah Nooe (1 white, 3 blacks, 2 horses, 6 cattle)
      Source: Vogt, John and Kethley, T. William, Jr., "Stafford County Virginia Tithables, Quit Rents, Personal Property Taxes and Related Lists and Petitions."
      Comment: What does the "2" mean after Zephaniah's name in the 1784 tax list? Two Zephaniahs? Two different households? Would it explain the inordinately high number of white tithables (8 of them) in the 1784 tax list? Might "8" be the number of all white persons in the household rather than white tithables?

      Dec. 23, 1803 - Zephaniah Noe m. Sarah Kirtley Dec. 23, 1803 in Culpeper Co., Va.
      Sources: (1) Vogt, John and Kethley, T. William, Jr., "Culpeper County Marriages, 1780-1853," p. 82, and (2) Gioe, Joan C., "Culpeper County, Virginia Marriages, 1782-1815," p. 22.
      Comment: Is this the same Zephaniah Noe or a younger man of the same name?

      Oct. 8, 1808 - For and in consideration of the sum of one dollar in hand paid me this day by Mrs. Jimmey Kerttey, I, Zephaniah Nooe, at present of the county of Culpeper, do hereby relinquish, give up, and make over unto the said Mrs. Jimmy Kerttey, all my rights, titles, interests and claim of, in and to all and every part of the estate of which she is now possessed under the will of her father James Roberts.
      Source: Culpeper Co., Va. Deeds, Book DD, p. 149.
      Comment: "Kerttey" in this record and "Kirtley" in the previous record are presumably the same surname. The name "Jimmey" may stand for "Jemima."

      Apr. 17, 1809 - Mrs. Jimmy Kerttey, of Culpeper Co., Va., deeds a slave and other property to dau. Sarah Susanna Nooe, of Culpeper Co., Va. I make over and give unto my said dau. all the estate or property of every kind which was relinquished and made over to me by my said daughter's husband Zephaniah Nooe by his relinquishment of Oct. 8, 1808, viz., all the estate, claim and demand which the said Zephaniah Nooe then had or ever had to the estate of my father Benjamin Roberts. Witness: Henry Noe.

      1810 - Zephaniah Nooe, of Culpeper Co., Va., sells his inheritance of half of Basil Noe's estate to John B. Nooe, of Madison Co., Va. John B. Nooe was the son of Zephaniah Noe and the executor of his uncle Basil Noe's will. Witnesses: Mary K. Noe, Basel Noe, Henry Nooe, Charles Nooe.
      Source: Culpeper Co., Va. Deeds, Book DD, p. 401.

      1810 - Zephaniah Nooe is in the 1810 Census of Culpeper Co., Va.

      1812 - John B. Nooe, of Madison Co., Va. [as executor of Basil Noe?] transfers slave ownership to Robert Slaughter, Jr., of Culpeper Co., Va. Robert Slaughter, Jr., to give profits from slaves to Mrs. Mary Nooe, wife of Zephaniah Nooe, during her life, "to her own exclusive benefit and behalf for the utterly exempt from all control of her husband, and in no (way) liable for the payment of his debts or contracts but as separately, independently and exclusively as if the said Mary Noe was a single woman." After Mrs. Mary Nooe's death, Robert Slaughter shall possess the slaves for the use and benefit of all the children of Zephaniah and Mary equally to be divided between them including the aforesaid John B.
