Philippe Stanislas Noisette (1775 Paris - 1835 Charleston), younger brother of Louis Noisette, went to America in 1795. He became the first director of the Charleston Botanical Society in 1808.

[From The Western Journal, 1848, p. 142] ...The winter of 1834-'5 was arearkably severe one and particularly destructive to vegetable life...the end of the year 1834, the temperature was moderate and uniform...which...prepared the way for that devastation and havoc...on the night of 6th February, 1835, the thermometer stood at forty-eight degrees...by Sunday, the eight...the thermometer stood, after sunrise, five degrees above Zero...We presume it was at this time that M.Noisette, whose residence and nursery near Charleston had long been celebrated for their beauty, lost his magnificent collection of Camellias, the growth of many years - planted and nursed by his own hand - and unequalled in size and splendor. The old gentleman, in the morning, gazed upon them, all blasted and killed to the ground; and, it is said, re-entered hisa house without uttering a word, took to his bed and in a few days, died!...
