  1. Greetings! I believe that I am related. My Great, Great, Great, Great Grandfather is Henry B. Noisette. My aunt is Roberta Frasier. I remember my Great, Great, Great Aunt Viola Noisette-Smalls as a child & teenager. I lived with my grandmother Estelle Gruber-Frasier. My mom is Estelle Frasier-Bethea.
    There will be a ceremony on November 11th to honor Henry B. Noisette. I am so proud of my family since I am a veteran of Saudia Arabi, my uncle Tyrone Frasier for the Vietnam War and now my ancestor for the Civil War. Let’s keep in touch. I look forward to uniting with family.

  2. It was nice meeting and celebrating with you Shawnette on Veterans Day. You have a rich family heritage, one that you seem to be carrying on as a Veteran yourself.

    Thank you for your service to our Nation.

    We are looking forward to attending the reunion. Ironically, we have a Christian record company called Noisette Music. Feel free to visit us at

  7. Here it is June 16th, the reunion over a month away. Calls are coming in everyday saying ” I’m coming!!” I am so excited for those who will be meeting for the first time their cousins from their ancestral families. In the last few months I have put my cheek to the tombstone of my 4th great grand uncles (Joseph and Paul Noisette), I’ve talked to my 5th cousin Kaprice who is connecting to the family for the first time, (her 5th great-grand mother was the sister of my 4th great-grandfather). I ‘ve met my 3rd cousin, Frances once removed who lost her ancestral family connection over forty years ago. She brings over 100 people to our continuously growing family tree.

    Am I excited?? Over the top excited!!

  8. Hi, I plan to attend the Noisette Reunion-2011
    (with my husband Simpson Berry Jr. and other members of the family, see Veronda Berry says).
    I am the great, great grand-daughter of Louis Philippe Noisette who is the brother of Joseph and Paul, son of Philippe and Celestine.

    Hope to see you soon.




  10. I am wanting to take a group photo of all of the Noisette’s at the picnic on Friday the 29th. I will have them available at the banquet on Saturday the 30th. I just want to make sure that there is an interest and that we can find a place to stage the photo. Please let me know what ya’ll think.


  11. Hi, my grandfather was Samuel Lee the son of Ellen Noisette Lee. I would like to see more connections with the female side of the clan. We focus to much on the male decedents and foget the female decendents.

  12. I would like to see more connection with the female side of the family. My grandfather was Ellen Noisette Lee. Where are her decendends

  13. Ellen Noisette Lee is one of our family’s biggest mysteries. We know she is the granddaughter of Philippe Stanislas Noisette. According to the family notes it was said that she was a first cousin to Alexander Noisette II. They both were raised in Summerville, SC. That means her father has to be one of the 5 sons of Philippe. The five sons being Alexander, Louis Philippe, Pierre Louis, Joseph or Paul S. We have a list of Alexander’s children which didn’t include an Ellen. Louis Philippe had one daughter named Louise or Louisa Noisette who married John Edwards. Pierre Louis left for France in 1840, married twice, had two daughters, Marie and Augustine, by his first wife. Joseph and Paul never married or had children as far as we know. Another set of notes has Ellen as the daughter of Philippe Stanislas Noisette Jr and unknown Chamberlain. We haven not found a record of a Philippe Stanislas Noisette Jr.

  14. I would love to come for the next reunion please keep me in the Nut Loop.
