Noisette Reunion 2015 : Closing Letter

Noisette Reunion 2015 : Closing Letter

Hello Family,

What a fantastic reunion! After many months of planning, it is hard to believe that the 2015 Noisette Reunion has actually come and gone. We hope you enjoyed the activities that were arranged. The reception which displayed the family trees, documents, and exhibit panels, always brings life to our family history. As we continue to add to the collection, there is something new to learn with each presentation. We hope you enjoyed the Gullah Tour, the visit to the Angel Oak, and the picnic at the county park which included the water park for the kids. The best part was the talent show with the kids!! Time flies when youʼre having fun, so weʼre sure that day seemed like it went too fast. Unfortunately, we were not able to take the group picture because of the bus issue, so we apologize for that.

The visit to Emanuel AME was incredible. The connection of our family members, Debra Johnson Lamb, Sharon ʻSherrieʼ Johnson Rencher, and Carmen Michelle Easter Garner to this historic church, touched our hearts. We were able to enter the place where those nine faithful, God fearing lives were so tragically taken while they only showed love and compassion to a stranger who only had hate in his heart. We were able to witness the strength of that congregation through Mr. Williams as he spoke to the group, and not allow that hateful act prevent church members from conducting activities in the church as they continue to heal. Michelle was ecstatic to see the edifice that housed the tomb of her great grandfather and mother.

The banquet just went too fast!!! When we are able to share with you newly found information brought to us by research or just happenstance, it is always exciting. Finding Philippeʼs obituary, Josephineʼs descendants, the family of Louie Toussaint still living in the home where he once lived in the early 1800s near Paris, while hearing about Ellen Elizabethʼs courtship, and marriage to Frank ʻSparksʼ Lee, and the incredible life of Joseph and Paul, made for an interesting, informative, and unforgettable evening. Our guest speaker, Josephine Humphreys, showed us how her ancestry paralleled our history, starting about the same time as Philippe and Celestine in Santo Dominge. Our evening ended with the group picture which is attached, picture taking, hugs, kisses, goodbyes, and “see you next time”.

Love to you all,

Peggy Clement, Robin Griffith, and Barbara Clark


  1. I would love to learn more about the ‘Noisette’ last name. I feel as though I may be a part of this family along with the rest of the Noisette’s that live in Jacksonville,Florida.

  2. Hello Terissa, There were two Marion Noisettes born about the same time in the 1860’s. I am the descendant of the grandfather of the Marion who never MARRIED. You are a descendant of the Marion Noisette who married and had several children. We are still trying to research your ancestor to determine if he is related to my ancestor. I have been working on your family tree but it had been difficult getting information from your family. If you are interested in working on this worth me, let me know.
