There's 2 Philemon Noble about same age..North Carolina Philemon Noble, estate records, was filed in Lenior county NC July court 1782, wife Phileanea & 8 children not named..Later records show 7 of the children were Lewis, Jeremiah, Enoch, John, Susanah, Broddock & Richard Noble. Son Richard was executor of distributing Philemon's estate in 1798 & 1822..I don't think this is the same Philemon, of Maryland,son of Robert Noble of Maryland, but must be related some how?! The name Philemon isn't very common & seem to run in part of the Noble family line.. Robert Noble died 1733 Talbott County Maryland names children Philemon, George, Robert, Nehemiah & Frances(married Henry Down)I do find a Philemon Noble who died in Warwick Maryland 22,Sept 1778, wife Margaret. Proved 10 Nov 1778 page 84 Cecil County Maryland Will Book 1777-1810. Original records might show more detail.
