Samuel S. Nolen, and brother William C. and sisters Jennie and Hobbie, appear on 1880 Census, (posted under Vernon Par. archives) p. 48-18...
They are children of Samuel A. Nolen and Josephine Smith, (married Rapides Par., 20 Aug. 1869, #33, witnessed by Mary M. Merritt (my ancestress' Alice Ann Howard Merritt's sister, soon to be Simon's wife) and his brother Simon Nolen.
Samuel A. Nolen and Simon Nolen were sons of David Lewis Nolen and Amanda Terrell (appear on 1870 Census and 1880 just above Simon, and witnessed marr. of Simon Nolen to Mary Merritt in Rapides Par., 2 Mar 1871), son of Absolom Nolen and Mary of South Carolina, ( in Rapides Par. La. and 16 Nov 1840 BLM land record Benton Co. Miss., also1840 Census in Spartanburg Co. South Carolina )
