Welcome to the Noecker research website. This page has been created in the hope that it will act as a central location for anyone researching a genealogical connection to Rebecca Ellen Noecker (who married Joseph Coup) and further stimulate research into her ancestry. Our goal is to provide an organised, well-documented database for all family lines descending from her parents Benjamin Noecker and Lavina van Horn, as well as their ancestry.

Benjamin Noecker

Within these pages, wherever possible, the source of the information is given. It is anticipated that knowledge of the source will give the researcher some indication of the accuracy. Information displayed without any indication of source should not be taken as absolute.
If you can disprove (or indeed prove!) anything displayed in these pages please let us know.

Do use the information for your own use, but please share your own research data with others in return. We have endeavoured to acknowledge sources so please do us the courtesy of acknowledging this site if you use information contained herein.

If you have any addenda or corrigenda or even unsubstantiated family stories which you wish to share please send them to the site manager.

It is hoped to update this site monthly, depending on the availability of new information, ... and time.
Rather than postpone this indefinitely with the intention of "just finishing this or that part" ... here it is!
