As earlj as the year 1845, the compiler of this yolnme com- 
xnenced the collection of dates and facts respecting his ancestor, 
Thomas Noble of Westfield, Massachusetts. His investigations at 
that time were confined to his own direct line. In the year 1851, 
with the purpose of tracing the genealogy and history of the Noble 
fsmily more folly, he began the careful examination of family, 
church, town, county, and state records, and opened a wide cor- 
respondence with sll persons by the name of Noble, whose poet- 
oiBce address he could obtain. Material accumulated rapidly upon 
his hands, and ^ his manuscript was so nearly completed that in 
December, 1859, he issued proposals to publish the work, should a 
sulBcient number of subscribers be obtained to pay the printer's 
bills. Such encouragement not being given, the manuscript was 
carefully laid away until the fall of 1875. 

Unwilling that the facts which he had so carefully collected, 
many of them from aged persons long since deceased, should be 
lost, he then resolved to make one more effort to obtain subscrip- 
tions enough to pay the expense of printing. Accordingly, circu- 
lars were widely sent through the country, asking for subscriptions, 
and soliciting additional facts and dates necessary to bring the 
work down to the present time. Answers to his drculars came in 
slowly, but in December, 1877, the number of subscribers was 
such that he ventured to send his manuscript to the press. In his 
circular, he promisad his subscribers an octavo volume of from four 
hundred to five hundred pages^ and based the expense of printing 
on a book of that size. Much to bis surprise, the material has so 
increased that a book of eight hundred and seventy pages is now 
presented to the family. While asking nothing for his great 
expenditure of time and money in obtaining and publishing the 
information here embodied, he trusts that the family will see the 
justice of providing, by the purchase of the book, that the unlooked- 
for expense of printing so large a volume, shall not fall upon him 

The dates and facts here given were mostly collected by the 
compiler. So far as hii knowledge extends^ no one before him 
had ever attempted to trace either of the Noble families early in 
the country, except the late Curtis Noble of UnadiUai N. T;, who 
confined himself to his own direct line of descent from John Noble ,

of New Milford, Conn., the eldest son of Thomas Noble of West- 
field, Maes. From all the family histories which he has oonsolted, 
he doabts whether he has obtained the records of more than twenty 
Noble families, and many of the dates in these have required yeri- 
flcation. Those who have had experience in such matters will 
understand the difficulties attendant upon a work of this kind. Of 
course it has been impracticable to consult personally the individual 
members of a &mily as wide-spread as this. It has been, therefore, 
necessary to ask them to send him their records by mail The 
names and dates thus obtained have not always been distinctly 
written, and in some instances both dates and names have been 
differently given in the same letter or in^ subsequent letters. Again, 
the dates given on church and town records and on tombstones, are 
frequently found to differ from each other, and from those which 
appear in the family Bible. In such cases the compiler has endeav- 
ored by correspondence to reconcile conflicting dates, and where 
this has been impossible, has published the different dates. With 
all the care which he has used, he is aware that errors may have 
occurred which have thus far escaped his notice, and will be thank- 
ful to any reader who will correct even the slightest of them. The 
compiler regrets that many of the family to whom he has applied 
for information which they could readily have fumishedf have 
either wholly n^lected to answer his often-repeated inquiries, or 
have forgotten their promises to send him the desired facts and 
dates. Their own imperfect records remain in evidence of their 
silence and neglect But let no one despair of finding what he 
may wish without consulting the Addenda and Errata, pages 776 \ 
and 806, which are mainly made up of facts recently obtained. [ 

The family whose history is here recorded, though it. has fur- I 
nished some men distinguished as scientists and in the learned [ 
professions, and others who have represented their states and dis- | 
iricts in both houses of congress, and filled gubernatorial chairs, (

The descendants of Thomas Noble have been very numerous. 
This work, which is far from being complete, records the names of 
about eight thousand of his descendants, a large number when it 
18 considered that he could not have been bom until after the set- 
tlement of Massachusetts, and was therefore of a generation later 
than the first American ancestor of most of those families whose 
genealogies have been printed. It is a fact worthy of notice in this

oonnection, th&t while oar New England families nsnallydiBajypear 
from a particular locality, in one hundred yean, the voters' list of 
Westfield, Maasachnsetts, at the end of two -^nndred yean from 
the settlement of the town, shows a larger number of persons by 
the name of Noble, all descendants of Thomas, than of any name 
except that of Smith, whose origin may be traced to perhaps a 
dozen different ancestors of different nationalities. 

In the New World, the Nobles have been conspicuons on acconnt 
of their enterprise as pioneer settlers. The same spirit which led 
Thomas Noble, senior, to brave the dangers of the ocean and the 
wilderness, inspired his eldest son to become the first white settler 
in the rich valley of the Honsatonic at New Milford, Ck>nnecticiit, 
and a yonnger son to become the first settler higher np the same 
beantifal river at Sheffield, Massachusetts. At later periods we 
find the descendants of this man among the early settlers of Ver- 
mont^ northern, central, and western New York, western Pennsyl- 
vania, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Iowa, and 
passing westward across the Mississippi through Kansas, Minne- 
sota, Utah, and Montana, until their feet have touched the shores 
of Oregon, and the golden sands of California. 

At all periods of our country's history, the Nobles have been 
noted also for their patriotism. When danger has threatened, they 
have been among the first to take up arms to resist foreign invasion 
and suppress domestic treason. Although the record is far frcMn 
being complete, this volume gives the names of seventeen who took 
part in the French and Indian wars, fifty-one in the war of the 
American revolution, thirteen in the war of 1812, and eighty who 
fought and bled in our late CivU conflict 

The arrangement of this book is one which commends itself by 
its simplicity. The descendants of each of the six sons of 
Thomas Noble are separately traced by generations. The same 
number is given to each individual whether found at the left 
hand or carried forward to the centre of a page. From the num- 
ber at the side one must look f onrard to the number in the centre 
of a page for a foil account of a person, as in the former case 
only the date of birth, and name of husband and wife are given. 
Suppose for example that one desires to trace the line of descent 
of Nathan Noble, centre number 109, whose family appears near 
the top of page 61. Look back to page 45, where side-number 
109 is found. It is there shown that Nathan, bom Feb. 20, 1761, 
was the son of Nathan, central number 30. By referring to side- 
number 30, on page 36, it appears that Nathan was the son of

John, No. 13. On looking farther at No. 13 on page 35, it is seen 
that John was the eldest son of John Noble, No. 2, who accord- 
ing to entry on page 27, was the son of Thomas Noble, the early 
settler of Westfield. In a similar manner a name is traced for- 
ward from generation to generation. 

In some of the early dates, a difference may be discovered 
which can only be explained by the fact, that prior to the introduc- 
tion of new style in the place of old style in 1752, the year com- 
menced with the 25th of March, and the practice of doable 
dating thus: 1676-7, or 167f, between January 1st and March 
25th, was common. In such cases the compiler has called the 
year 1677, rather than 1676, which so far as the year is concerned 
changes old style into new style. He has not added to dates, the 
ten days between 1582 and 1699, inclusive, nor the eleven days 
alter 1699, necessary fully to reduce the dates to new style. 

He regrets that so few persons have responded to the invitation 
to furnish portraits of themselves and their immediate relatives, 
for this work. A photo-engraving of the house still standing in 
Westfield, Massachusetts, built about 1725 by Thomas Noble, (No. 
1355) a grandson of the first settler, will give the reader a correct 
idea of the better class of New England farm-houses near the 
commencement of the eighteenth century. 

To a large number of persons, some of Noble name and descent, 
and some of different origin, the compiler returns his warmest 
thanks for their continued favors in supplying information. Of 
those who have been most liberal in their aid, among the deceased, 
he mentions the names of Rev. Samuel B. Noble of Pontiac, 
Michigan, and Ezra Noble, Ssq., of New Milford, Coxmecticut, and 
among the living, those of Hon. David Noble of Johnsburgh, 
New York, Mr. John Noble of West Suffield, and Mr. Russell B. 
Noble of New Milford, both in the state of Connecticut, Dr. 
Wilham M. Beach of -London, Ohio, and Mrs. Martin Tinker of 
Westfield, Massachusetts. 

The compiler not without regret draws his labors to a close, 
thankful that he has been able to gather from the crumbling 
records of the past and leave in an enduring form for the benefit 
of succeeding generations, so much respecting the genealogy and 
history of families, whose ancestors were honest, enterprising, 
Ood-fearing men, with virtues worthy the imitation of their

Eustache de Noble, one of the most indefatigable writers of his 
time, was bom in Troyes in 1643, and died in 1711. 

Leopoldo Nobili, an Italian botanist^ was bom in 1784, and

Boberto Nobili, a celebrated Italian Jesuit and missionary, and 
nephew of Cardinal Bellarmino, was bom in Monte-Pidciano 
in 1577, and died in 1656. He resided for many years in Southern 
India, where he converted great numbers to Christianity. He 
wrote several religious treatises in different Indian dialects. 

Constantin Nobd, or Noble^ a Dutch navigator, was bom abt 
1616, obtained a high rank in the service of the Dutch Eaat India 
Company, and died after 1674. In company with Van Hoom, he 
went, in 1665, on a minion to Peking. 

No relationship has as yet been discovered between any of the 
Nobles mentioned in the preceding pages and those who emigra- 
ted to America. It cannot, however, be doubted but that such 
relationship existed, and their names, with such incidents as could 
be gleaned respecting their history, have been here introduced, in 
the hope that future investigations will show some of them to 
have been the ancestors of those who had the courage to follow 
the star of empire to this westem continent

THOMAS NOBLE was the emigrant anoettor of the largest 
famifyin the United States^ beazing the name of Noble. He was 
born as early as 1632, probably in some part of England, and died in 
Weatfield, Mass^ Jan. 20, 1704, m. at least 72 yrs. His exact oxigin 
and early history axe inyolved in obscnrity, {he place of his birth, the 
names of his parents, and the year in which he oame to this country, 
being alike unknown. He was» without doubt^ here in 1 653, and was 
the man mentioned by Drake, (History of Boston, p. 331,) as admit- 
ted, on the 6th of January of that year, an inhabitant of Boston. 
The same year, he removed to Springfield, Mass., and opened an 
acooont at the store of John Pynehon. Though not one of the 
founders, he nxay he considered as one of the early settlers of that 
ancient town, the first settlement having been made in 1636, only 
seventeen years before. A few years after removing to Spring- 
field, he visited England, as appears from an account-book of Mr. 
Pynehon. On the Ist of September, 1657, he was indebted to 
Pynehon totheamountof £32 3«. 6<f., in whkh account is this item: 
<< To what I pd.for yo^ passage to and fro. Eng^d., and for yo^ charges 
(beside what I give you) as in my pocket booke, £16 00. 00." 

In 1664, in connection with aeveral of his townsmen, he had 
Uberfy granted him to erect a saw-mill, on the west side of the Con- 
necticut^ as i^ypears from the following vote: 

''Decemb'y 8th, 1664. There is Grannted liberty unto fismuel Msrah-

carry on y* work, provided these undtakera be paid w* charges they shall 
be at about the Work. Also, they are not restrayned of the liberty of the 
Ccnnons, for all sorts of tymber for their use for Sawing or otherwise." 

At a meeting of the selectmen of Springfield, Jan. 1, 1665 0. e. 1666), 
it is recorded, " This day according to Towne order we considered about 
(making Rates A) takdng a list of y« estate of jT Plantation. And for 
Prizing y* Living Stock of y* Towne we choose Tho. Noble A James 

Mr. Noble, though a maB of activity and industry, ieems to have 
eiarly fallen into a habit (which it is to be hoped that his descend- 
ants will carefully avoid) of living " beyond his means," and as a 
natural result, soon found himself in debt To secure the sums due 
to Henry Smith and John Pynchon, he was obliged, in 1667, to 
make over to Fynchon his house in Springfield, and all his lands, 
except a grant towards Windsor. In the hope of improving his 
condition, and providing tor the wants of a large and growing 
family, he was therefore ready to join those who were beginning 
a settlement at Westfield. The precise time of his removal to 
that place is not known. The lands there granted to him, JuJ^, 
1666, on condition that he settled upon them before the last 
of May, 1667, having been forfeited by non-settlement^ the grant 
was renewed, Jan. 9, 1668, and the time of settlement extended to 
Nov. 10, 1668. At all events, he was there as early as Jan. 21, 
1669, for at a meeting at "Warronoco, (Westfield,) at that date, it 

" Voted, That Ja. ComiBh, Geo. Phelps, Thomas Dewey and Thomas 
Noble shall go to Springfield the first Tuesday in February next, at a 
Towne meeting, to propound to the Towne for the settlement of our place 
and aflayres, in particular to determine where the lyne shall run betwixt 
Springfield and us, and to appoynt persons to lay out the bounds granted 
us by the honored Gen" Court, and to allow us to be a Township by o'selves 
and signify the same to the honored Qeaf^ Court" 

In his historical sketch of Westfield, Bev. Dr. Emerson Davis- 
states, that Mr. Noble's residence in Westfield was about two and 
a half miles east of the present centre of the town, on the farm

where his eon, Dea. Thomas Noble, atterwarde resided, and 
which renudned in the family ontQ after the death, in 1791, of 
his great-grandson, Lieut Stephen Noble, when it passed into the 
possession of Ambrose Day. There, he doubtless lived in peace 
and quiet^ until the commencement of *' Eing Philip's " war, in 
1675. In this war, says Bev. Br. Davis, 

" Mr. Noble was much exposed. One night during fsmily prayers. 
Gray Lock* (an old Indian), stepped up and pulled the string and let the 
door swing open, and as soon as all was quiet, be would pull the string 
again. Mr. Noble was persuaded by his friends to move into town. Gray 
Lock said he had several opportunities of killing most of his children at a 
shot, but did not want scalps as much as captives." 

Having been chosen constable of Westfield, the records of the 
Hampshire county court show, that on the 7th April, 1674, he 
'< was swome to discharge y* s* office,'* which in those days was one 
of honor and trust He took the oath of allegiance to his Majesty, 
Jan. 23, 1678; joined "Westfield church, Feb. 20, 1681; was made 
a freeman, Oct 12, 1681, and at the Hampshire county court, Sept 
26, 1682, took the freeman*s oath. 

The Hampshire county records show that about this tame he 
suffered the penalty of the law for travelling on Fast day: 

"At a County Oorte held at Nortliampton, March 87th, 1688. Thomas 
Noble of Westfield being p'sented by the Grand jury for Travelling on a 
day of Humiliation, publiquely appointed by the Gen" Oorte, which he 
owned, pleading his necessity for Comeing home, and yet this Oo^^ Con- 
sidering said affense, being a growing evil amongst us, many Persons too 
much disregarding such eztraordinaiy Dutys, & Seasons, have adjudged 
sd. Noble to pay as a fine to the County treasurer five shilUngs. " 

In 1684, his name is with the most influential of his townsmen, 
upon the jury of inquest on the body of Elieser "Wellerf of West- 

•If this wss the chieftain of the Waranokes, Rev. Dr. Davis is ob- 
viously in error in calling him "an 0U Indian/' King Philip's war 
terminated in July, 1676. Temple and Sheldon, in their History of North- 
Held, state, that Gray Lock, the chief of the Waranokes, so called from the 
tfAoT of his hair, was the most prominent chief in Father Ralle's war, 
which raged fifty years later, 1723-M. They say: "He was now well 
advanced in age, but retained all the daring, and tact, and energy of bis 
youth. In 1788, he was living on the shore of Misslquoi bay, at the 
northerly end of Lake Champlain." The only way of reconciling the 
ststement of Rev. Dr. Davis with that of Temple and Sbeldon, is by sup- 
posing, that in 1676, he was prematurely gray, and was at that time really 
young, although from the color of his hair, appearing to be an old man.

Agriculture, neoeBsaiily the main pursuit of every one in tbe 
early history of a country, was his principal employment^ although 
while at Springfield, during the winter, he worked a portion of 
the time as a tailor. 

At Westfield, he was so much prospered in his labors, as not 
only to bring up a large family of children well, but also to leave 
them at his death a respectable estate. 

A copy of the will of Thomas Noble, executed almost seven 
years before, and proved about seven months after his death, 
recorded in the office of the Hampshire Probate court [Vol. Ill,

Janury 170|, the land lyes about the middle of the farm, that the dec«

James Noble's pasture land from this dividing line, the northeast end 
buts upon the old cartway that goes through or that went through the 
S4 farm to Springfield, the southeast end buts on the old ditch or the 
land of Matthew Noble. It is divided in two divisions. The first divis- 
ion begins two foot to the norwest side of the first rowe of apple trees. 

The first lot in that division was laid out for Thomas, which was 13

The 2 for James, four rods and 7 foots, 4 broad. 

The 8 for Matthew, twelve rod, 12 broad. 

The 4 for Luke, nineteen rod, 19 broad.

JoHV NoBLEy 8. of Thomas, was b. in Springfield, HasB., 
JlATcb 6, 1662, and d. in New Milford, Conn., Aug. 17, 1714, m. 
62. He removed in childhood with his father to Westfield. In her 
will, ezeeated at Deerfield, Maae., Feb. 25, 1692, and proved on the 
29th of the succeeding March, Mary, widow of Richard Goodman, 
formerly of Hadley, names her son-in-law, John Noble, her execator, 
and dedares: <<My will is, that my son Noble shall possess, im- 
prove, b injoy my house. Bam & all my Lands in Hadley, till y* 
term of his foure years be fully accomplidied k Compleated." It 
is probable that he was at that time a resident of Hadley, and an 
occupant of the above-named house. Certain it is, that he was of 
Hadley, November, 1694, and at that date purchased of John 
Pynchon, skins to the value of nearly £6. Possibly he was then a 
furrier, though it may be that he bought these skins to sell again, 
for in 1702 he is styled " trader.'* On the 12th of February, 1695, 
he was still at Hadley, and then, for £10, bought of Stephen Lee 
of Westfield, five and three-quarter acres of land in Westfield. ^ He 
returned to Westfield as early as March 2, 1696, at which date he 
was chosen constable, and on the 20th April, 1702, is called 
'<trader,"andonthe 1st September, 1703, "innholder,"and con- 
tinued, doubtless, to make that the place of his residence until 
1707. In the last-named year, as is supposed, he was the pioneer 
settler of New Milford, Conn. 

CoL Robert Treaty and other inhatttants of Milford, Conn., hav- 
ing purchased, for £60 in money, and £30 in goods, '<a certain 
tract of land, formerly called Weantenuck, now New Milford," of 
the Indians, the same was confirmed to them by the General Court, 
Oct 22, 1703. On the 22d June, 1706, John Noble, then of West- 
field, purchased land at New Milford, Conn., of John Woodruffe of 
Milford, an original proprietor. 

Rev. Stanley Oriswold, pastor of the Congregational church at 
New Milford, in a century sermon preached January, 1801, full 
extracts from which are entered on the town recoidS) has the 
following in relation to John Noble:

" The lint white tetUer, who came to this town, was John Noble from 
Weetfleld, Mass., who came here in the year 1707. He brought with him 
at first one of hie daughters, then about eight years old. He first built a 
hut under what is called Fort Hill, but afterwards moved, and pitched 
here in the centre of the town. His house here was for some time the last 
house on this side of Albany, and General Nicholson once lodged in it, 
' during the reign of Queen Anne. It deserves to be mentioned to the credit 
of the natives, that Mr. Noble once left his little daughter, then eight 
years old, w\th them for the space of three m four weeks, while he was 
necessarily absent from the town, and on his return found she had been 
well treated and taken exceedingly good care of. Another daughter of 
his, the late Mrs. Margaret Hine, who died here in the 08d year of her age, 
was then three years old, and the fact was fresh in her memoiy, as she had 
heard it while young, though she herself was not then broui^t hither." 

No one who has seen New Milford in the summer, will call in 
question the good taste of Mr. Noble, in selecting that town as his 
future home, for in the whole valley of the Housatonic, no place, 
aurpassing it in the beauty of its natural scenery, can be found. 

" At a meeting of y* Proprietors of New Milford, held at Milford, Dec 
y*27th 1710. Voted, That there be a Comittee chosen for ordering y« 
settlement of New Milford, and dividing y lands according to y* several 
limitations, here after agreed upon by y Proprietors. Comittee chosen 
are MaJ' 6am^ Eells, Capt Joseph Treat, Lieut. Joseph Peck, Sergi 
Sam^ Clark, Jonathan*Law, Jn* Nobles, Jn* Bostick, Berg* Zachariah 

Voted, that any five shall be a sufilcient number or Quorum for doing 
any matter proper for y* Comittee to do. 

Voted, Tliat y Comittee consider how many families may be accom- 
modated, in and ab* y place where y Town platt is already pitched, with a 
sufficiency of land, taking care that they do not exceed their Proportion of 
y whole tract of land and fall short of it according to their best Judge- 
ment, and when those accommodations are filled or taken up with Inhabi- 
tants, to pitch upon some other convenient place and there lay out another 
number of accommodations as y adjacent land will admitt of, taking y 
same care as before specifyd and so to proceed as there shall be occasion, 
untill y whole is laid out leaving suitable Comons, Highways, &c." 

On the 10th January, 1710, several years previous to the organ- 
isation of the church in New Milford, Mr. Noble joined the First 
Congregfttional church in Woodbury, Conn. Shortly after this 
date, the inhabitantB of New Milford, though few in numbers, feel- 
ing their need of religious privileges, petitioned the (General Court of 
Connecticut for liberty to lay a tax upon all their lands, for the 
Bupport of the gospel A copy of the original petition, preserved 
in the Secretary's office, is here inserted :

Test, R BTJ8HNSLL, Clerk,'' 

New Milford became a town, Oct 9, 1712, by act of the legisla- 
tore. Its growth, howevar, waa alow. Permission was granted to 
gather a church in May, 1715, the church was organized Nov. 21, 
1716, and a meeting-bouee commenced in the spring of 1719. 
In May, 1719, the number of familiee in the town was twenty- 
three. In October, 1727, the inhabitants asked the General Court 
for their county rate, to aid their school, and help finish the meeting- 
house, and their request was granted for two years. They again 
asked, May, 1730, for tbeir country rate, to be used in 'finishing 
their meetiiig-house, and the Legislature granted their petition. 

But in midsummer of 1714, before the plans which he had so 
fondly cherished had been carried out, even before the establish- 
ment of a churchf John Noble, the enterprising founder of this 
new town, was, in the full strength of manhood, suddenly removed 
by death. 

The proceedings in the settlement of his estate, from the New 
Haven probate records, are as follows: 

*'At a Oonrt of Ptobates held at Newhaven Nov* 8d, 1714. 

"Administration of the estate of John Noble, late of New Milford,

River, "all her Messuage and Tenement in the Township of En- 
field," consisting of "a house, bam, and homestead, containing 
twelve acres in the town plot," " bounded northerly by the land of 
Jonathan Bush, Sen', and south by Capt Isaac Meacham, easterly 
upon the town street, or highway, k westerly upon the great 
river." On the 2d Nov., 1713, being then of Enfield, he sold his 
homestead to Isaac Eibbe of Enfield. He probably removed to 
New Milford, as early as Jan. 24, 1714, for the records of that 
town show, that at that date twenty acres of land for a half right 
of upland were measured for Stephen Noble. 

Stephen Noble was a man of great influence in the town of New 
Milford, and held almost every office of honor and trust in the 
gift of its dtisens. 

"At a town Meeting held November 29, 1714, there was chosen San^uel 
Bronson and Stephen Noble to make up accounts for the collictor and 
see that the money be brought in so that it may be disposed of in order to 
the maintanance of the ministiy amongst us." 

"At a town meeting held Oct. 22d, 1716, Stephen Noble was appointed 
to represent the town in such matter as shaU be nedf ull at the time of the 
ordination of Mr. Daniel Boardman." 

" At a town meeting held Dec. 14, 1716, it was agreed that John Weller 
and Stephen Noble should have ten shillings for beating the Drum upon 
publike meetings & other nesesary times the year insuing." 

Dec. 16, 1717, " Att the same meeting there was chosen John Bostwick, 
Ben', Zachariah Ferries, William Gaylord, Stephen Noble, John Bostwick, 
Ju', for a oommitty to agree with Mr. Bordman for his ssleiy." 

"March 17, 171{, at a town meeting held in New Milford, Stephen 
Noble and Daniel Griswold were chosen a commity to proportion and set 
out to eveiy man his part of the fence which was formerly agreed upon 
to be made for Mr. Boardman about his homelot." 

"Mar. 16, 172}, at a town meeting, it was voted in the ailrmative 
that in taking up of land or a forty acre pitch, that we will draw a lot for 
a choice an in this manner proceed, at the same meeting there was chosen 
for a oommitty to draw lot for the choice are Stephen Noble, Zachariah 
Fteriss and William Oaylord." 

"At a meeting held Sept 28, 1728, Capt Stephen Noble was chosen to 
agree with Doct Warner to mannag our petition at the Genarall Court in 
October next" 

Stephen Noble was, for fifteen years, a selectman of New Mil- 
faid,via., in 1714; 1716-21; 1724; 1727-28; 1730; 1735; 1738;

From the Colonial records of Conn., [VoL yiL 60,] the f dlowing 
vote, relating to Stephen Noble, is extracted :

engagements, among others in the memorable battle of Stillwater. 
At the battle of Saratoga, he was killed by a musket ball from 
the enemy, just as he was entering the breastwork. He never 
spoke after receiving the wound. He seems to have had a pre- 
sentiment of his fate, having observed on the morning of his 
death, that he should not live out the day.

Jan. 11, 1824, m. 74. He signed a petition May 2. 1772, to the 
General Assembly of Connecticat in aid of one from Ralph Eeeler, 
who asked that a ferry five miles below Falls Bridge, on the way 
from Brookfield to Woodbury, might be settled on him. 

Soon after the birth of his son Cyrenus, which occurred in 1776, 
be removed to that part of New Milford which, together with parts 
of Danbory and Newtown, formed the Society of Newbury. This 
was incoiporated in 1788, as the town of Brookfield, Conn. 

About 1789, in company with his brothers Sylvanus and Jesse 
Noble, and Joseph Tomlinson, he built a forge and engaged in the 
manufacture of bar iron. The charcoal there used was burned 
whoUy by himsell 

Soon, glowing accounts of the richness of the soil west of the 
Hudson, in New York, reached his neighborhood, and in 1793 he 
sold his £arm in Brookfield, and early the ensuing year, for $750, 
bought one hundred acres of land on Butternut Creek, Otsego Co., 
N. T., in the township of Burlington, since called Pittsfield, and 
now New Lisbon. The only buildings upon it were a log-house 
and a log*bam; the former ten feet by twelve, covered with elm- 
bark, with a chimney of sticks and day, and containing but two 
rooms. An aoconnt of the jonmey thither, written by his son 
Cyienns^ has fortuna.tely been preserved: 

"On the 17th of April, 1794, at about 10 o'clock in the morning, we 
started for our new home, in a cart covered with tow-cloth, drawn by two 
stoatyokeof oien. Ourfamlly consisted of my father, mother, my sister 

Digitized by 



Sally, brothers Sylvanui, Nathaniel, Bostwick, Ehiatban, and myself. 
The first day, the weather being warm and pleasant, the ground well set- 
tled, and the roads good, we made twelve miles, and in twelve days passed 
Canagoharie, fifty miles west of Albany. We reached our destination on 
the first of May. The land was heavily timbered; the settlers few, aiitl 
principally Dutch. We lived happtly in our log-cabin." 

By occupation a farmer, he was an induatrioos and worthy man, 
poflsesdng a cheerful spirit and courteous manner, which seemed 
to win for him the friendship of all. He was for many years a 
magistrate of the town, and one of the founders and active sup- 
porters of Zion church, at "the Butternuts." His remains 
were deposited in the church burying-ground, near the site of the 
old Episcopal church, now gone to decay. In accordance with his 
previously expressed wishes, his funeral was attended by Rev. 
Daniel Nash, with whom he had long been a co-laborer, in his 
efforts to build up the Episcopal church in that place.

TVilbraham, Mass., son of Henry and Mary Badger. Henry Badger 
was son of Nathaniel, who was son of John, who was son of Giles, 
who came from England, and settled in Newbury, Mass., abt. 1 635. 
Joseph Badger for two years was a soldier in the Revolutionary 
war, and in 1785 graduated at Yale College. Having pursued his 
theological studies with Rev. Mark Leavenworth of Waterbury, 
Conn., he was licensed to preach, Oct., 1786; and ordained pastor 
of the church in Blandford, Mass., Oct 24, 1787. Having been 
dismissed from his charge in that place Oct. 24, 1800, after a min- 
istry of thirteen years, he went the same year to the Western 
Reserve in Ohio, being the first missionary who arrived there. 
After laboring there for something more tlian a year, he returned 
to New En?;land for his family. At that time there were no stage- 
coaches daily plying between the eastern and now western cities — 
no packets, steamboats, or railroads, to facilitate his progress. He 
drove his own wagon over roads that were never before made, cut- 
ting his own path from Buffalo, N. Y., to Erie, Fenn., and reached 
the Reserve in safety, in 1801 or 1802. He spent three or four of 
the following years as a missionary among the whites, preaching 
and laboring in the settlements, which were then few and far 
remote from each other. The next four years he labored among 
the Wyandotte Indians, who then resided at Sandusky and vicinity. 
After this he resumed his missionary work among the whites in 
the eastern part of the Reserve. In this capacity he continued 
(except a season in the war of 1812, when he served as chaplain in 
the anny, and two or three yean which he spent as stated supply of 
three or four churches), until Oct. 19, 1825, when he was installed 
over the church in Oustavus, O. He terminated a long and 
laborious life, in Penysbnrg, O., Apr. 5, 1846, e. 89.

Datid Noble, b. of Daniel, was b. Dec 9, 1744, and d. in Wil- 
liamstown, Mass., March 4, 1803, e. 58. He graduated at Yale 
College in 1764, read law with Woodbridge Little of Pittsfield, 
Mass., removed between 1766 and 1770, to Williamstown, Mass., 
and established himself in the practice of his profession. He was 
afterward, for a time, engaged in mercantile pursuits. 

He settled at first on the banks of the Hoosick, in a house which 
stood where the new factory company have since erected their 
store. Soon he removed thence, and built, at the east end of 
Main street, half a mile from the old Congregational church, a 
double brick mansion, two stories in height, with dormer win- 
dows. To it from the street led a grand avenue of Lombardy 

He was a man of activity and enterprise, of probity and intelli- 
gence. An early friend and earnest patron of Williams College, 
he was one of its trustees from 1 793 until his death. The college 
bell, and the land on which the old presidential house stands, were 
his gifts. In 1795, he was chosen judge of the court of Common 
Pleas for Berkshire county, and retained the ofiBce while he lived. 
His estate was appraised at $11,735.97. A portrait taken near 
the dose of the American revolution, and now, 1876, in the pos- 
session of his great-grandson, Charles W. Noble of Detroit, Mich., 
shows him, with his powdered hair, silk coat and waistcoat, and 
general bearing, to have been *< a gentleman of the olden school." 
A copy of this, made by a Detroit artist, was presented by his 
grandson, Hon. Charles Noble, to Williams College, and placed in 
Alumni HalL 

His monument bears the following inscription: 

In memory of 
David Noble, Esq., 
lately one of the Judged 
of the Court of Comm- 
on Fleas for the County 
of Berkshire, who died 
Maich^h, 1808:inthe 
59th year of his age. 
The dust shall return to the earth 
as it was, and the Spirit shall 
return to Qod who gave it *

, Curtis Noble, b. of Elnathan, was b. in New Milford^ Conn., 
Nov. 19, 1774, and d. in UnadiDa, Otsego, N. Y., Feb. 21, 1835, 
n. 60. He was bred a merchant, in the store of Hon. Elijah 
Boardman of New Milford. Habitually a business man, ceaseless 
employment was his pleasure. He removed from New Milford to 
Unadilla, Otsego Co., N. Y., and settled at or near the place then 
called Wattles Ferry, on the Susquehannah. For more than thirty 
years he there carried on the mercantile business, near the Tillage, 
in company with Isaac Hayes, under the firm of Noble k Hayes. 
A man of strong natural ability, with clear views on all subjects, 
he was unambitious of public notice or political life, and univer- 
sally declined, when offered political or military preferment. He 
admired unpretending merit, and was himself in all respects unos- 
tentatious. Though economical from early habits, and though not 
having himself had the advantages of early education, he bestowed 
his property freely upon the education of his children, and liberaUy 
advanced funds, with litUe hope of their return, to his brothers 
and other relatives. Always evincing a stem integrity and strict 
honesty himself, he could brook in others no pallying with either. 
He died of a disease in the head, by some deem^ scrofulous, but 

Digitized by 



iAo«t probably an inflammation arising from a cold and some 
catarrhal prediapodtion. He made no will, having often before 
and during hi8 illness expressed his approbation of the disposition 
of property which tbe statute laws of the state made in cases of 
intestacy. To his widow and children he left property, real and 
personal, to the amount of thirty or thirty-five thousand dollars, 
which he had accumulated by industry and economy. 

At a meeting of the vestry of St. Matthew's church, Unadilla, 
held on Monday, Feb. 23, 1835, two days after his death, the fol- 
lowing resolutions were unanimously adopted: 

Whereas, In the dispensations of on all-wise Providence it hath pleaHcd 
the great Head of the Church to remove from the Church ^lilitant our 
much-esteemed and beloved brother and companion, Curtis Koble, one of 
the earliest settlers of our vfllage, and one of the founders of our church, 
and who has been from the first organization of the same, a distin- 
guished and efRcient member of her vestiy, and for a long time one of her 
most exemplary, pious, and devoted conununicants; and whereas, we arc 
desirous of expressing our feelings on this mournful event; therefore, 

ReiKdttd, That in the death of Curtis Noble we are called upon to 
lament the loss of one whose sterling integrity and unostentatious and 
well-directed charities have not only endeared him to a large circle of 
friends and relatives, but have left us a bright example worthy of our 
admiration and esteem. 

Be$olTed, That as a vestry, we will ever cherish the liveliest recollections 
of his piety and virtue, and sincerely sympathize with his family and rela- 
tives in this most afflicting bereavement, which has deprived them of nn 
alTectiottate husband and indulgent father, and an undcviating friend, antl 
the Church of Ood of one of her wisest, most exemplary, and dcvoti*d 

Eenolted, That in this great bereavement we cannot but acknowledge tlie 
goodness and mercy of God, In that He has not left us comfortless, but 
that in view of the bright example, of the calm and peaceful departure of 
our companion and brother, we are led to exclaim: " Let us die the death 
of the righteous, and let our last end be like his.'* 

Bemdvcd, That as a tribute of respect to the memory of the deceased, 
the members of the vestry will wear the customar}' badge of mourning fur 
the space of thirty days. 

Rttntted, That the foregoing resolutions be entered on the book of tlie 
vestry, and thai a copy of the same be sent to the widow of the deceased.

Cyrenus Noble, b. of Elnathan, was b. in New Milford, Conn., 
Sept. 27, 1776, and d. in Buffalo, N. Y., March 16, 1857, e. 81. 
In his fifth year, he first attended school, walking two miles to 
reach the school-house. At that time, the people, being greatly 
straitened in their circumstances, in consequence of the Revolu- 
tionary struggle, were unable to employ competent teachers, even 
for three months in the winter. His father, in connection with 
others, having erected a forge for the manufacture of bar iron, and 
agreed to furnish charcoal for the manufacture of the same, in his 
thirteenth year, under the direction of Eber Ruggles, he learned 
to build and bum coal pits. In his fourteenth year, he took the 
entire management of the same. The farmers* market was then 
Bridgeport and Norwalk, on the sea-ooast, thirty-five miles distant. 
Their mode of conveyance was ox-teams ; carts in summer, and 
sleighs in winter. There were then but few horse teams in the 
country. A trip to Norwalk and back required foor days. The 
mail came but once a week, and was carried on horseback from 
Hartford to New York. The (hnnectieut Courani^ published 
weekly at Hartford, furnished the family with the news of the 

In 1794, he removed with his father to Burlington, since called 
Pittsfield, and now New Lisbon, Otsego Ck>., N. Y. He received 
in 1804, the appointment of postmaster of Pittsfield. In 1806, he 
built a shop in New Lisbon, N. Y., and in- company with his 
brother Elnathan, made and sold tinware. He established, in 
1808, a shop in Ogdensburgh, N. Y., for the manufacture and sale

never removing to that place. In 1816, he was elected a member 
of the General Aflsembly of New York, for the county of Ots^o. 
From 1817 to 1827, he was engaged in the manufacture and sale 
of hats, and in farming. 

Having sold his farm, in 1827, he removed to the adjoining 
farm, formerly owned and occupied by his father, and there 
remained until the same was divided in 1834. In May, 1835, he 
removed from New Lisbon to Eortright, Delaware Co., N. Y., and 
there engaged in mercantile business. The succeeding year he 
removed to Hamden, Delaware Co., N. Y., and there followed 
the same pursuit In December, 1838, he removed to Oneonta, 
Ots^^ Co., N. Y., and there, in company with Samuel B. Beach, 
conunenced the manufacture of shavinff and fancy soaps. He 
removed thence to Unadilla, Otsego Co., N. Y., and continued 
the same business, until May, 1848. 

His children having now removed to Detroit, Mich., he with his 
wife followed them thither, in June, 1848. That city was his 
home through the remainder of his life. He died at the house of 
his son Charles £., in Buffalo, N. Y^ but his remains were removed 
to Detroit, and there interred.

and Joseph Badger and John Eingsbory, in Waterbury, Conn. 
He graduated at Yale College in 1795; waa a tutor in Williams 
College, 1796-98; professor of mathematics, natural philosophy, 
and astronomy in if ale College, 1803-17; and president of Yale 
College, 1817-46. 

Daring Dr. Day's professorship, he published an Introduetton 
to aigebra, and also a Course of mathematies, embracing princi- 
ples of plane trigonometry, mensuration, navigation, and survey- 
ing, all of which had a wide circulation. "While president, he 
published an Enquiry respecting contingent volition; and an Exam- 
ination of Edward* s enquiry as to the freedom of the will. 

In 1817, Middlebnry College conferred on him the degree of 
doctor of laws, and Union College, in 1818, and Harvard College, 
in 1831, the degree of doctor of divinity. . 

Although Yale College had been very fortunate in its presi- 
dents, it had never been more prosperous than imder President 
Day. His learning and talent united to great kindness of heart, 
secured alike the respect and love of the thousands of pupils 
committed to his charge. For twenty years after his resignation 
he continued to serve the college as a member of the corporation, 
retiring from the board only the year before his death. 

In early life he was threatened with consumption. But by con- 
8tant» persistent, and self-denying attention to the laws of health, 
he attained a more advanced age than most of his contemporaries, 
and was at his death the oldest resident of New Haven. 

"I suppose," sayB President Woolaey, in the address at his funeral com- 
memorative of his life and services, " that if the nearl}* 8,600 graduates of 
Tale College who were educated here under President Day, were asked, 
who was the best man they knew, they would, with a very general agree- 
ment, assign him that high place.*' " We bury him not knowing whether 
so good a man shall ever appear among us, or in the times of our children 
again. We bury him, a man of a dear intellect, who lived in harmony 
with all political, morel, religious truth, without a grain of party spirit, 
bigotry* ^ uncharitableness in his temper, who had a full-orbed charac- 
ter, in which calmness, self-control, meekness, tenderness, unselfishness, 
sH the virtues found their radiance. We bury him above all, aservantof 
Christ, eminsntly like the Master, thankful tluit we have known such a 
man, and that the remembrance of him may be a guide and a help to 
us in the remainder of this earthly life."

study of the law with Hon. Daniel Dewey of Williamstown, 
Mass. After three months* study at Hartford, Conn., under Theo- 
dore Dwight, in December, 1799, he was admitted to the bar. 
He immediately commenced practice in Hartford, where he con- 
tinued to reside until his death. In 1810, he was elected by the 
people of Connecticut^ secretary of state, and was continaed 
in office by twenty -five successive elections, until May, 1835. He 
was appointed in May, 1815, associate judge for the county of 
Hartford, and annually afterwards, with the exception of one 
year, until May, 1825, when he was made chief judge of that

Hartford. Mr. Day was one of the committee who prepared the 
edition of the Statutes of Connecticut, published in 1808. He 
himself compiled the notes, made the index, and wrote the intro- 
duction. He was one of the committee, who in 1821, revised the 
Statutes of the State, and also one of the committee appointed to 
prepare and superintend a new edition in 1824. In 1805, he 
began to report the decisions of the Supreme Court of Errors in 
Connecticut) and when provision was made by law, in 1814, for 
the appointment of a reporter, received that office, and retained it 
until his resignation in 1853. The report of the decisions from 
1802 to 1813, published by him, makes five octavo volumes, and 
those from 1814-53, inclusive, twenty-one octavo volumes. He 
also edited, with copious notes, about forty volumes on English 
law. As a deserved recognition of these services, his Alma Mater, 
in 1847, conferred upon him the degree of doctor of laws. 

Mr. Day's name stands connected, as vice-president or trustee, 
with most of the benevolent and literary institutions of Hartford, 
as the Hartford Grammar school, Hartford Female seminary, 
American Asylum for the education of the deaf and dumb, and 
Retreat for the Insane, He was also an original member of the 
Connecticut Historical society, and its first recording secretary. 
On the revival of the institution, in 1839, he became its presi- 
dent, and retained that position for more than fifteen years. 

A man of dignified presence, uncommon courtliness of man- 
ner, and great kindness of heart, he secured alike the love, 
respect, and veneration of his fellow citizens. A life-like portrait 
of him, taken towards the close of life, by Emmons of Norwich, 
Conn., adorns the wall of the rooms of the Connecticut Histori- 
cal society in Hartford.

having designed to give him a liberal education, he was preparing 
for college when the revolutionary struggle commenced. Aban- 
doning his plans of study, at the age of fifteen years, he entered 
the army, in the capacity of derk in his f ather s company. At the 
age of sixteen he received an ensign's commission, and in 1778 
was raised to the rank of first lieutenant, in which office he con- 
tinued until 1781, when he was appointed paymaster, with the 
rank of captain. He was at the surrender of Burgoyne in 1777, 
in the battle of Monmouth in 1778, spent the principal part of the 
year 1780 at West Point and its vicinity, and in 1781 had for some

enemy. When the army was disbanded in 1783, CoL Danforth 
was continued in the service as paymaster to assist in the settle- 
ment of the accounts with the soldiers, and was not discharged

Administrations. He was a member of the New York assembly, 
1827-29; and a member of Congress, 1836-37. He lived succes- 
sively in New Milford, Conn., and in Ballston Springs, Cato, and 
Rochester, N. Y. His three eldest children were b. in Ballston 
Springs, and the others in Cato. In an Auburn paper, published 
soon after his death, appears the following sketch of his character: 

" Died at bis residence in Rochester, Tuesday morning, Feb. 5th, Col. 
Wm. H. Noble, formerly of Cayuga County, in this State, in the e2d 
year of his age. Col. Noble had been a resident of the County of Cayuga 
more than thirty years, when a few months since he removed to Rochester. 
He has been called suddenly from among us, but his many good qualities 
as a man and a citizen, will cause his memoiy to be long cherished by a 
large circle of friends. His intelligence, his energy in business, his kind 
and social manners, made him in early life popular and influential, and 
the recipient of the confidence and honors of the people of the county. 
He has repeatedly represented them in the Legislature of this State, and 
was their representative in Congress during the administration of Presi- 
dent Van Buren. The bereaved family are left to mourn the loss of a 
husband and father, who, in all the relations of private life, commanded 
their love and esteem by his devotion to their welfare. His funeral was 
attended on Thursday last, at Cato, his. late residence, and the large 
assembly present, furnished a strong testimonial of the high respect in 
which he was held in the community that knew him best."

Col. George Hateb Noble, b. of Curtis, was b. in Unadilla, 
N. Y., Dec 15, 1803, and there d. July 27, 1847, m. 42. He was 
a mercliant. The Albany Argus thus notices his death: 

" We are pained to announce the death of this estimable and much 
respected gentleman, who expired at his residence in Unadilla, Otsego 
County, on the morning of the 27th inst., of a disease of the kidneys, of 
some months* standing. In his native village, and wherever he was 
known, the withdrawal of one so favorably and honorably connected 
with the affairs of his times, in the freshness <A life, and the meridian of 
his usefulness, will be felt as an event deeply to be deplored, and to his 
family and friends, irreparable. A mutual friend and correspondent, in 
communicating his death, writes us as follows, not for publication, but 
which we take the liberty to transcribe: 

" ' CoL Noble has occupied no inconsiderable place in the public mind 
here, as a man of high intellectual powen, and extensive reading and 
intelligence. You knew him personally, and were not, I am sure, insen- 
sible to his worth. His fine qualities of mind and heart were devoted to 
the service of his friends, and to all who came within the sphere of his 
association, in his native village. His pen also has been often employed 
for their gratification and instruction. Politically he enjoyed a personal 
popularity beyond his party friends and associates, all confiding in his 
integrity and manliness of character. He was, when he died, postmaster 
at this place, and supervisor of the town. He has always been a pro- 

Digitized by 



f«ned belieyer in Chrigtianity, and was much attached to the Episcopal 
church, of which he was a sincere, but unostentatious member. 

" 'He was in the 44th year of his age, and died in the possession of his 
mental faculties, having scanned his books, and perused your paper yes- 
terday as usual, although too feeble to sit up. He passed the day com- 
fortably, and slept last night until two o'clock in the morning, when he 
awoke to undergo the pains of dissolution, and expired in one of the 
paroxysms of his disease, at half -past three.' 

" We sympathize with the surviving relatives, who so recently called to 
the death-bed of a beloved sister, Mrs. Donnelly of Catskill, now bow to 
this added stroke of affliction.'*

Hon. Chablss Cubtib Noble, b. of Curtis, was b. in Unadilla, 
N. Y., Jan. 10, 1806, and d. in Owego, N. Y., June 13, 1851, sb. 
45. The foUowing article, copied from the Dreeman's Journal, 
giTes a truthful sketch of his life and character: 

"A correspondent at Unadilla, the residence of the late Judge Noble, 
fmiahes us," says the AXbany Argui, '* with some particulars of the cir- 
cumstances attending his death, together with some incidents of his life, 
which cannot but be interesting to our readers, many of whom knew him 
well, and appreciated his sterling worth both in public and private life: 

" ' Charles Curtis Noble was the second son of Curtis Noble, one of 
the earliest settlers of the town of Unadilla, a successful and enterprising 
merchant, extensively and favorably known for many years throughout 
that section of the State. He died some years ago, leaving a family of 
two aons, and daughters, and large c6nnections, an ample fortune, and an 
unsullied name. The deceased was the oldest [second] son, and was in 
his 46th year at the time of his death. He was a graduate of Union Col- 
lie. He commenced his professional studies with Ezekiel Bacon of 
Utica, and completed them under James Clapp of Oxford. Upon his 
admission to the supreme court, in 1842, he formed a partnership in the 
practice of the law with the Hon. Stephen Strong of Owego, and con- 
tinued this association for several years, and until the death of his father, 
when be returned to Unadilla, where he resided at the time of his death. 
The general esteem and confidence which he earned at Owego, and in all 
that section of the country* awaited him on his return to Unadilla. The 
olBce of supreme court commissioner he held for several years, and was 

Digitized by 



sabsequently the successor of the Hon. Jabez D. Hammond, as first Judge 
of Otsego County. This last office he held in 1847, when the new consti. 
totion took eifeot. He was elected in 1849, to the Assembly from Otsego, 
and in that station distinguished himself as a safe and able legislator. 

Judge Noble was attacked by the disease which terminated bis life, in 
March last, and about four weeks ago, seeking relief from a change of 
residence, he became a welcome guest in the family of Judge Strong 
(with whom he was connected by marriage), and there, surrounded by 
kind and attentiye friends, he breathed his last on the 18th inst , in the 
full possession of his mental faculties, and in the faith and with the hopes 
of a Christian. His remains were accompanied to the railway depot by a 
large procession, and conyeyed to Deposit, whence they were taken to 
Unadilla by way of Bainbridge. There the remains were reoeiTed by the 
friends and fellow-townsmen of the deceased, flUing some thirty carriages, 
and accompanied about ten miles to Unadilla, where the funeral aervices 
were held in the Episcopal church, of which the deceased had long been 
a communicant, and an appropriate sermon was delivered by Rev. N. H. 
Adams. The scene was highly impressive, and the unusual circumstances 
attending it, evinced how deeply and generally the loss of the deceased is 
felt and deplored by all classes of society.* 

" We cannot better express our own high appreciation of the character 
of the deceased, than by giving place to the following eloquent and Just 
tribute to his memory, from the pen of the Hon. Jabez D. Hammond, an 
intimate and warm personal friend: 

'Chk&rt Vallet, June 21, 1851. 

No case of mortality could have occurred in this county, which would 
have produced more general lamentation and heart-felt grief, than the 
death of Judge Noble. He has been taken from us in the vigor of life, 
and in the midst of his usefulness. He was for many years engaged in 
extensive practice as a lawyer, in this and adjoining counties. He has 
held the office of Supreme Court Commissioner, first Judge of Otsego 
County, and member of the legislature. All these high trusts he has dis- 
vbarged with distinguished ability and scrupulous integrity. I was for 
five years associated with him as one of the members of the Court of 
Common Pleas of this county, and therefore can speak from my own per- 
sonal knowledge, of the purity and independence of his official conduct 
He was a sound and well-read lawyer. But that for which he was most 
distinguished, was his amiability of temper and kindness of heart In 
his political and professional collisions, be never afforded evidence of the 
least unkind feeling or illiberality to his opponents. His appearance was 
highly prepossessing, and his address was so frank and friendly, as in- 
stantly to enlist your feelings in his favor. A more purely virtuous man 
never lived. He was universally respected— he was more than respected, 
he was beloved by alL There may have been those who envied him, but 
I do not believe the human being now lives, who was an enemy to 
Charles C. Noble. His wife, a most amiable and excellent lady, and seve- 
ral young but highly promising children survive him. Kay the God of 
the widow and fatherless protect and comfort thent' "

'* I landed in Detroit^*' he writes, <' not penniless, for I had one 
penny, a gift, which I have still, Feb. 7, 1876, in my possession." 
He immediately applied to Titus Doane, the husband of his cousin,

Michigan Central railroad. On the morning of the second day, 
he was promoted from a common laborer to time-keeper, and his 
wages increased from 6/ to 8/ per day. He soon after obtained 
a clerkship in the drug store of his brother, Garra B. Noble, and 
there remained until the following year, when he entered into 
the employ of Capt. E. B. Ward, as clerk of the steamer Cham- 
pion, running from Orand Haven to Milwaukee and Sheboygan, 
and continued on the same for five years. For the two subsequent 
yean, he was a merchant in Ypsilanti, Mich., and then removed 
to Detroit^ and entered into partnership with his brother, Garra B. 
Noble, under the firm name of G. B. k F. W. Noble, in the grain, 
flour, feed, and commission business. His brother retiring after 
a year, he conducted the business alone for about two years. For 
the ensuing two years, he was street commissioner. In July,

Digitized by 



overlftnd route, being one of the company known as the <* Wolver- 
ine rangers," numbering sixty-seven men, with eighteen wagons, 
fifty-four yoke of oxen, and many cows and horses. Soon after 
leaving the frontier, thinking to outstrip the train, Noble, with one 
companion, took ponies and provisions, and started on in advance. 
The first night, the Indians stole their ponies, leaving them with 
their heavy packs to pursue their way on foot. After a weary 
march of five hundred miles, on the 10th of October the eyes of 
the starving travelers were gladdened with the sight of the 
Sacramento valley. We have not space to tell the marvelous 
story of the sicknesses, hardships, and privations, which he 
endured from the time of leaving home, until he was once more 
safe in Unadilla. In that place he has since resided, engaged a 
part of the time in mercantile business, and a part in farming.

two little children as her only companions, carried his remains, in 
a cart drawn by a yoke of young steers, within the Union lines, to

courage and humane feelings toward an enemy and a stranger, her 
answer was, "In the Bouthem army I have two sons, and for this 
wounded man I have only done what I should wish some Northeni

one time the nnBuccefiaful candidate of the Democratic party for 
Congress. In connection with Phineas T. Bamnm, he planned 
and laid out that part of Bridgeport, Conn., known as East Bridge- 
port» a large portion of which came to him by inheritance from his 
father. Building lots, streets, and a park were laid out; two 
bridges built across the Housatonic River, and large manufacturing 
companies, the Wheeler k Wilson and Howe Sewing machine and 
others, were induced to locate there, so that what was formerly a 
mere cow-pasture, has become a thriving city. 

In the Civil war he was mustered into the service Aug. 28, 1 862, 
at Bridgeport, Conn., as colonel of the 17th Reg. Conn. Vols. He 
was ordered first to the defense of Baltimore and Washington, 
thence to Sigel's llth Corps, reserve to Bumside's army of the 
Potomac. In the battle of Chancellorsville, in 1 1th Corps under 
Howard, he was wounded, a ball cutting off the main artery of his 
left arm, above the elbow. Having recovered from his wound, he 
reached his regiment in time for the last day's fight (July 3, 1863) 
at Gettysburg, Penn., went in and through the town, capturing 
rebel stragglers, and with the army followed Lee into Virginia. 
Thence he was sent with his brigade to South Carolina, under 
Gen. Ames (subsequently governor of Mississippi), was in the 
trenches at the siege of Wagner, and on Folly and Morris Islands 
until Wagner fell, and Sumter (on which he saw the first gun 
fired) was battered to a sand-heap. He was sent thence to Florida, 
^ first to Jacksonville, in command of a brigade, thence, Dec. 
22, 1864, to headquarters at St. Augustine, in command of 
seven regiments and batteries, and all the country east of the St 
John's River, a district larger than Connecticut. He was captured 
by the confederates Dec. 25, 1864, and taken to Macon, Ga., and 
thence to Andersonville, Ga., and was there in the oflScers* prison, 
in sight of the << great pen," for six weeks. Being released in 
March, 1865, with one thousand prisoners imder his charge, he went 
by foot and rail to Vicksburg, thence to St Louis, thence in com* 
mand of one thousand paroled prisoners to Annapolis, Md. He 
was mustered out of the service at Port Royal, S. C, in July 1865. 
During the same month or the next^ on the recommendation of 
U. S. Grant, he was breveted brigadier general. 

Bridgeport has been his home since 1834. He is a good public 
speaker, and a man of culture and broad views. Horticulture is 
his hobby, and he has introduced more new and rare shrubs and

HaviDg gradoated at Williama CoUege, in 1815, he read law in 
WiUiamatown, with his nnde, Hon. Daniel Noble, and in Pittefield, 
Mass. He started for the West^ in 1818, and after a short resi- 
. dence in Cleveland, 0., removed in 1820 to Frenchtown, now 
Monroe, Mich. That place continued to be his home, except from 
1850-53, and 1867-74, when he resided in Detroit, Mich. He 
held many public offices, as register of deeds, district-attorney, 
postmaster, Indian agent^ member of the general assembly, mem- 
ber of the legislative oouncD, 1828-29, president judge of the 
county court, 1846-50, and surveyor general of the district em- 
bracing Ohio, Indiana, and Michigan, 1849-53. In the obituary 
record of the graduates of Williams College, for the year 1874-75, 
appears the following estimate of the chaxacter of Mr. Noble: 

" Older citizens remember Mr. Noble as one of quite a large number of 
earnest and well educated men, who half a century ago planted them- 
selves in Monroe, and thence influenced, and to a large extent controlled 
the politics, and what were then regarded as the esrly enterprises of the 
State. The results of Mr. Noble's active life are now seen and enjoyed 
through a wide extent of country, by a large and appreciative population. 
He has left a bright and spotless reputation, and a memory which will be 
fondly cherished for many long years to come. Mr. Noble was a man of 
deep convictions and decided opinions in all religious matters. In the 
year 1881, he first connected himself with the Presbyterian church, and 
for a number of years was a ruling elder in the church of that denomina- 
tion at Monroe. Shortly after his removal to Detroit, he became a ruling 
elder in the First Presbyterian church there, and so remained until his 
death. Both in Monroe and in Detroit, Mr. Noble had, by his genial 
manners, his sterling integrity, his inflexible uprightness of life, gathered 
around him a wide circle of friends, who will Isment sincerely that he is 
no longer their fellow citizen snd friend. As the good mariner, when he 
draws near the home port, furls his sails and enters its gates softly, so 
did this good man with sll dignity of expression snd oonfldence of faith, 
turn his face towards Heaven in his last days, snd enter into Ids rest. 
' The memory of the Just is blessed.* '*

Aug., 1829, to practice in the Supreme court of the state of New 
York; represented Monroe, in 1845 and 1846, in the legislature of 
Michigan, and was elected representative in Congress for the 
session of 1853-54. 

The following extract from the Detroit Free Press, gives the prin- 
cipal facts in the history of his life: 

"David Addison Noble . . . was fitted for college in the school of 
PftTsoD [Moses] Hallock, In Plainfleld, Mass., and entered Williams Col- 
lege in 1821, from which institution he graduated with honors, in 1826. In 
college he was a good scholar, distinguished for accuracy and soundness 
rather than for fluent recitations and showy acquisitions. .... In 
September, 1826, he entered the law office of Hermanus Bleeker, in Albany, 
N. T., remaining there until the winter of 1826, when he went to Hudson, 
N. T., where he entered upon his literaiy work as assistant editor of the 
CMuffibiad, In the following year he moved to New York city, entering 
the law office of Benjamin Clark,' on Franklin Square, at the same time 
giving lessons in French in Banoell's academy. He was a fine Greek and 
Latin scholar, and during the winter was engaged to correct for the pub- 
lishers the proof-sheets for a Greek work. Subsequently he opened a law 
office with David Logan, at Ko. 4 Pine street. He was in the practice of 
his profession about two yean in New York, and for a short time was in 
partnership with Hon. Charles O'Conor. 

" In 1881 Mr. Noble removed to Monroe, Michigan, where he has since 
continued to reside. He here opened a law office with Warner Wing. He 
was an accomplished French scholar, and here it was of the greatest ad- 
vantage among the French population, so numerous at that time, enabling 
him to do an extensive business for them, pleading their cases in that 

"He always devoted himself assiduously to the practice of his profession, 
sad as a consequence, with his sterling abilities and good attainments, was

•Qcoeasful, establishing an enviable reputation. It was as a oounseior tliat 
Mr. Noble was chiefly distinguished, his thoroughly-disciplined mind» his 
habits of patient research, and his superior Judgment peculiarly qualifying 
him to arriye at correct legal conclusions. The bar of which he w^as a 
member numbered in its ranks such lawyers as Robert McClclUmd, Alpheus 
Felch, and that well-known jurist, the late Judge Warner Wing. 

" He was not only active in his profession, but entered with the same 
▼Igor into public life. He was elected Recorder in 1888, and while acting 
in this capacity, drew up the city charter. He was twice elected Alder- 
man, and in 1842 was elected Mayor. In 1845, Mr. Noble was chosen to 
represent his county in the Legislature, which he did with ability, and to 
the satisfaction of the people of the county. On Nov. l<Mh, 1840, Mr. 
Noble secured the charter of the Michigan Southern Railroad. He 
opposed the sale of the public roads, the Michigan Central, etc, and then 
fought the House on the bill and prevented its passage. In 1847, Mr. Noble 
was appointed a member of the Harbor and River convention at Chicago. 
Subsequently he was appointed one of the committee of five to cany out 
the wishes of the convention, at which time he wrote a full statistical 
report of the commerce of the lakes. In 1852, Mr. Noble was elected to 
Congress from the Second District In 1858, he was appointed manager of 
the Louisville, New Albany and Chicago raOroad, which position he held 
four years."

From that time until 1849, he was a farmer, next for four years a

was installed, Oct 14, 1839, as pastor of the Eleventh Presb. church 
in New York dty, and dismissed, June 9, 1850. In June 1850, he 
commenced his labors in the Associated Reformed church in Balti- 
more, Md., as assistant pastor with Bev. Pr. Duncan, who had 
become entirely disabled by paralysis, and continued there about 
(«e year. He opened, in 1851, a young ladies' school in Washing- 
ten, D. C, but retired from that position in Mch., 1852, to accept a 
chaplaincy in the United States navy. While teaching in Wash- 
ington, he organized a new Presbyterian church on 6th street, and 
continued his labors in that field, while performing his duties as 
chaplain in the Navy Yard. 

While chaplain of the navy, he made at least one cruise to the 
Mediterranean, and during the late Civil war was chaplain of the 
Naval Academy at Annapolis, Md. At the latter place, writes Dr. 
Noble, '* I preached to five hundred young naval officers every Sab- 
bath, and read the Bible to them, and prayed every morning, as 
they stood before me^ in militaiy array. I felt that this was prob- 
ably the most responsible, if not the most useful portion of my 
ministerial life.'* 

He was retired from active duties as chaplain in 1871, at the age 

Digitized by 



of sixty-two, as the law lequiras, but is still a chaplain od half -pay . 
He is now, 1876, in strong health, preaching every Sabbath, as 
pastor elect, to the Sixth Presb. church in Washington, which is 
free from debt, and numbers about one hundred and thirty fam- 
ilies, and two hundred communicants.

com meal in twenty-four, or often in forty-eight hours, without any

cook it. None of the prisons were covered except Libby and 
Castle Thunder. We were exposed to all kinds of weather, were 
naked and covered with Termin, and suffered from cold, hunger, 
and thirst. Our sufferings were beyond description. When I was 
taken prisoner, I weighed one hundred and seycnty-six pounds, 
and when released, but eighty-six pounds, was covered with sores, 
and in Salisbury prison lost the use of my limbs, so that when 
released, I had to be carried about on a stretcher. I shall never

of this man, and his places of residence. He was, Nov. 2, 1762, 
a resident of Springfield, Mass. He may have been the person 
named in Temple k Sheldon's *' History of Northfield, Mass.," p. 
507, as taxed there in 1762. If so, it must have been his son and 
not himself, who there died March 7, 1765. He is named on the

Rev. Sbtb Noble, s. of Thomas, was b. in Westfield, Mass., 
Apr. 15, 1743, and d. in Franklinton, now Columbus, O., Sept. 15, 
1807, e. 64. Though a good Latin scholar, he does not appear to 
have been a college graduate. Two of his grandchildren insist 
that he was for a time connected either with Dartmouth or Yale 
College. He joined the Cong, church at Westfield, Mass.. May 5, 
1770. The Maugerville people say that he was ordained at New- 
buiyport, Mass. His letters show that he was well acquainted in 
that place. His first settlement in the ministry was on the 15tb 
June, 1774, over the Cong, church in Maugerville, Nova Scotia. 
The first settlers of this town came from Rowley, Mass., and its 
immediate vicinity, about the year 1764. Maugerville is situated 
seventy miles up the river St Johns, and belongs now to New 
Brunswick, which, in 1784, was separated from Nova Scotia. 
The New England settlers immediately established divine worship, 
and speedily erected a meeting-house. " From all that I can learn, " 
writes Rev. Henry Wilkes, D. D., of Montreal, Oct. 12, 1842, 
after a personal visit, ''this spot was the nucleus whence proceeded 
most of the intelligence and piety to be found in this part of New 
Brunswick." The first religious teacher, who came out with the 

Digitized by 



Bettlen, was a Mr. Wellman, who soon returned to New England. 
Then came Mr. Briggs^ and after him, Mr. Webster. Mr. Noble, 
the first pastor, was settled June 15, 1774. Little is known respect- 
ing him at MaugerviUe, except that he actively sided with the 
American colonies in their conflict with Great Britain. The fol- 
lowing letter to a nephew in Westfield, who had spent some time in 
MaugerviUe, shows us this, as well as his early ministerial success: 

"Dear Kinsman: 

" I receiyed yours of the 7th and lOtb, with joy. Had you been more 
particular respecting the national ditBculties, it would have been an addi- 
tion to my joy. I have enjoyed a usual state of health I took a bosom 
companion the last of November. She has been pressed down under a 
weight and burden of her sins, almost ever since we entered into that near 
relation, but I trust, within a few days past, has hsppily taken sanctuary 
in Christ, the only ark of safety. 

" There is at present a considerable shaking of the dry bones among us, 
and several have happily put on Christ, which is life eternal. Simeon Towns 
is daily rejoicing in the rock of his salvation. Asa Kimball and wife are 
brought out into marvellous light. John Wasson was greatly troubled in 
mind during his absence. It was pressed upon him to return to this place, 
which he did with Capt. Lovet, and is now almost incessantly praising and 
adoring the lowly Jesus. Andrew Tibbetts and wife, Mr. Gellison's wife, 
Thomas Saimders, Sarah Coy, and Alice Potter seem under the prepara- 
tory work of the Spirit My wife with myself desires to be 

remembered to yon, to Mr. Granger, to your mother, and aU my kindred 
and acquaintance. 

** From your friend and humble servant, 

"Seth Noble. 

"Mauokbville, 7th Feb^. 1776. 

" P. a I send this letter by Capt Row. tho' it is uncertain whether he 
' goes farther than Machias. I shall expect you in the spring, if there is 
any passing. I should be glad to take Medad Noble till he is 21, except he 
should be greatly bent on learning a trade, and if he is, I will endeavor to 
get him a good place at Newbury Port. Pray advise with his mother and 
my brethren about it, and especially with him. If he and they think it best, 
pray bring him down with you— I will do as well by him as I would by my 
own. Mr. Saunders has done considerable labor on your land. We have 
had something of a cold season of late, though not colder than it is many 
times at Westfleld. We have about eighteen inches of snow. Mr. Makin 
died soon after you went away, but nobody since. Jeremiah Howland 
and Polly Baber were published last Sabbath, and Israel Esty and Salome 
Burpe. Josiah Whitney is married. 

" It seems to be still as to political affairs. If you could bring a Suffield 
dishtumer, it might be a benefit to the person and to this place. A saddler 
is much wanted, for there have been near a dozen horses purchased hei-e 
since you left us. There were sundry opportunities to get a passage from 
New England here last fall We have a number of vessels lately come in

England in the national struggle, and are making all possible preparationB

Rev. Seth Noble's ministry at Maugenrille continued until 1777,* 
when upon the arriyal of an armed British achooner, he, to avoid 
taking the oath of allegiance to the British crown, which it came 
to enforce, fied. narrowly escaping with his life. It is the tradi- 
tion in New Brunswick, that Mr. Noble eluded his pursuers, by 
fleeing to the house of a Mrs. Wasson, who concealed him under a 
bed upon which lay her daughter, apparently tuileiing from a 
severe malady. 

Hardly had he reached New England, before we find him 
shouldering his musket in defense of the rights of America against 
the British crown. On the Massachusetts muster rolls, [Vol. 35: 
286,] his name appears as a private in the roll ol non-commissioned 
officers and soldiers in the companies of Capte. Dyer and West, who 
marched to St. John in Nova Scotia, in May, 1777, his time of 
service being two months and five days. He is known to have 
been at Machias, Me., May 29, 1777; at Aukpaye, above Mauger- 
ville, on St John^s river, June 11, and June 29, 1777; and again 
at MachiaS) Aug. 14-15, when the British fleet under Sir George 
Collier attacked that town. Two days later, at that place, " Sun- 
day, Aug. 17, Parson Noble preached a sermon on the late event," 
f. e., the repulse of the British fleet. 

Where he was, and how engaged during most of the time 
between 1777 and 1786, is unknown. In 1779 he wasin Wobum, 
Mass., and declines an order for a mission to the eastern parts of 
Maine, which he had received from the Oen.eral Court of. Massa- 
chusetts, in the following characteristic letter: 

* In 1789, the meeting-house in which Mr. Noble had preached, was 
removed to that part of the town which is now Bhetfield, and over this 
society, which amid various trials and discouragements has always re- 
mained steadfast to Congregational principles, on the 18th July, 1876, Rev. 
Joseph Barker, a grandnephew of Mrs. Noble, was settled.

HoK» Gentlemen: 

" I reed, an order for a mission to the eastern settlements, yesterday, by 
the hands of Col. Baldwin, but find[ing] its contents so much different 
from what I had expected, must decline the undertaking. I was informed 
the mission was to be on the river Penobscot only, but find I was misin- 
formed. There are such a variety of islands, and other inhabitants con- 
tiguous to the water^those seas are so much frequented by their cruisers, 
that I think it too dangerous for a proscribed person to accept of. I sup- 
pose you are not unacquainted with the amazing scarcity of the necessaries 
of life, in those parts. Add to this, the reward offered me, when laid out 
in provision or clothings will not purchase more than one dollar would in

Rev. Mr. Noble*B son Joseph is known to have been bom in 
New Market^ N. H., Jnne 13, 1783. A letter from Humphrey 
Pickard of Maugerville, to Mr. Noble, dated Jnne 14, 1784, in 
reply to letters which he bad written, asking for a dismission from 
that church, is also directed to New Market His brother Thomas 
writes him there, May 21, 1785. To the same place he directs, 
Feb. 6, 1786, a letter to his wife from Hallowell, Me. Daring 
these years he could not have been preaching there, for Rev. 
Nathaniel Ewers was then their pastor. According to Minutes of 
the ministry and churches of New Hampshire (in Cong. Quarterly, 
zviii: 283), Rev. Seth Noble for three years ministered to a now 
extinct I^b. church in Seabrook, N. H. de may have been 
preaching at the latter place, while a resident of New Market. 

For several Sabbaths prior to Sept 6, 1785, Mr. Noble had 
preached in that part of Hallowell which is now Augusta., Me., and 
at a town meeting held on that day, the committee raised to pro- • 
core preaching was directed to hire him '< to continue his services 
nntil the middle of the ensuing March/' The efforts of the com- 
mittee were successful, and Mr. Noble preached sixteen Sabbaths, 
for which the town paid him £26 lOs. Notwithstanding th^ 
engagement with Mr. Noble, when the Rev. William Hazlitt 
iqppeared, with a letter of recommendation from Samuel Vaughan 
of Boston, a committee consisting of Joseph North, Henry Sewall, 
and Daniel Cony were chosen to return the thanks of the town to 
Mr. Vaughan, and request Mr. Hazlitt to continue his services for 
two months. But the people judged best to settle neither of the 
above gentlemen, for at a town meeting held Apr. 1, 1786, the

names of Rev. Seth Noble and Rev. William Hazlitt were pre- 
sented to the town, as candidates for settlement in the work of the 
ministry, and were both rejected. 

Rev. Mr. Noble shortly after makes his appearance at Kendus- 
keag (now Bangor). He was probably drawn thither by the influ- 
ence of his friend, Col. Jonathan Eddy, who had settled in town- 
ship No. 10, Penobscot river (Eddington), npon a grant made Jnne 
24, 1785, by the state of Massachusetts to the Nova Scotia exiles. 
At this place Mr. Noble himself received three hundred acres of 
land. When he came, in 1786, Kenduskeag had no organised 
church* and on the 7th of June, 1 786, he was engaged as a settled 
religious teacher and preacher, at an annual salary of £70. He 
was inducted into office, Sept. 10, 1786, under some andent oaks, 
that stood on the square bounded by Oak, Ash, York, and Han- 
cock streets, Bangor. Rev. Daniel Little of Wells, Me., gave him 
the right hand of fellowship. Mr. Noble preached the sermon on 
the occasion. 

To Mr. Noble, Bangor is said to have been indebted for its pres- 
ent name. Entrusted in 1790, with an agency to procure the 
incorporation of the town, he was directed by a vote of the plan* 
tation, to have Sunbury inserted in the act, either because appro- 
priate to its pleasant appearance, or because the name of a precinct 
where Mr. Noble had once resided. Being an excellent singer 
and passionately fond of the solid old minor tune, Bangor, when 
the legislative committee asked what the town should be called, he 
requested them to' insert Bangor instead of Sunbury. 

The broad parish to which Mr. Noble ministered, embraced 
what is now Bangor, Brewer, Eddington, Hampden, Holden, and 
Orrington. No church edifice seems to have been erected, but 
during his continuance there, "the meetings were generally held 
during the summer, in a bam south of Penjejewalk stream, and in 
such other places as would accommodate the worshippers." His 
field of labor was a hard one, the country being new, and the 
morals of the people having suffered from the long war through 
which they had passed. According to the custom prevailing in 
many places, he was compelled to collect his own salary, a task 
attended with no little difficulty, as the following letter plainly

" To CoL Jonathan Eddy, IfaJ. Robert Treat, Capt. John Croeby, Mr. 
EliBha Nerers, and the reat of the committee chosen to make propoeals to 
settle the gospel on Pttiobscot river, June 7, 1786. 

Pehobscot lUYEB, Aog. 81, 1790. 

" Bundiy attempts have been made for a settlement between the people 
and myself; but all to no effect When I settled here, I consented to 
accept 20 pounds less than what was really necessary to support my fam- 
ily, because the people said they were poor. Btill, to relieve them of the 
burden, I have been at the expense to collect a great part of what has 
been collected. Yeiy little thanks have I had for the trouble I have been 
to. I was desired to draw a bond for the people to sign for my support, 
which was rejected, and another drawn, (unbeknown to me,) which hath 
deprived me of one-half of the sum proposed. I am willing to do in this 
and all cases, as I would be done by; but necessity compels me to say, I 
muH have my pay. 

" I must farther tell you I shall look to no other persons for a settlement, 
but that conmiittee which covenanted with me on June 7, 1786, to give 
me 70 pounds annual salaiy. What you then did, is as binding as a note 
of hand. I am sorry to take any coercive measures; but I tell you again, 
I mu9l have my pay immediately. 

'* I am, gentlemen, with due respect. 

Tour most obedient, 

Humble servant, 

To the Committee. BETH NOBLE." 

To eke out a scanty support for a growing family, he was obliged 
to resort to the cultivation of hia farm, and the instruction of 
youth in English branches, and also in singing. *<He was a good 
singer,*' says Dea. William Boyd of Bangor, <'and had a clear 
and pleasant tenor voice. He taught those who were natural 
vocalists to ling by note, and waa the first teacher of sacred music 
in the place.'* 

Those who knew Mr. Noble personally, at Bangor, have long 
since passed away. Mrs. Thomas Howard of Bangor, now de- 
ceased, who knew him intimately, aays: "Mr. Noble was a gifted 
man, and preached well with notes, was a good neighbor, a moral 
man, industrious, and excellent in times of sickness. In 1708 
[1797], the sums subscribed for his support^ were not paid. Some 
of the subscribers were dead, and some had moved Away. His 
living being reduced, he returned to New Market, and never came 
back to Bangor." The late Rev. George Shepard, D.D., for many 
years a professor in Bangor Theological Seminary, who was person- 
ally acquainted with many of his parishioners in that vicinity, says of 
him: "He was evangelical in his doctrine, and faithful in his

preaching, an one remarked of him, 'he unsheathed the sword of 
the Spirit and turned the point upon the hearer.' '* 

Having resigned his charge, on account of insufficient support, 
on the 10th of Nov., 1797, he left Bangor, and returned to New 
Market, N. H., aniving there on the 14th of November. His 
family joined him on the 17th of the same month, and they soon 
commenced housekeeping. While a resident there, he supplied 
vacant pulpits in that and neighboring towns, most of the time. 
On the 21st of May, 1798, he agreed to preach for six months at 
New Market. He is also believed to have supplied for a time the 
churches in East Kingston, Exeter, Kensington, Pittsfield, Rye, 
Salisbury, and Stratham, all in New Hampshire. He is known to 
have commenced singing-schools, Dec. 25. 1797, in Newfield, Me., 
and Jan. 5, 1798, in Lamper River, N. H. 

While at New Market, he suffered a heavy afSiction in the death 
of his first-bom child, Seth, a promising young man of twenty- 
one years. Late in October, 1 798, a vessel having on board, among 
others^ Mr. Noble's eldest son, and Major Treat's son, Robert, 
both of Bangor, and Silvia Knapp of Eddington, bound from 
Bangor to Boston, in the midst of a thick and cold snow-storm, 
becoming unmanageable by the breaking of her boom, was 
wrecked on Boon Island, and all the passengers and crew lost. 
In Mr. Noble's Diary are found the following entries: 

"Oct 90, 1798. O deathi my son Seth lost at sea; and all who were 
with him; sapposed to be at Boon Island. All in number who were lost 
was 96." " Nov. 5. Cool. Went to Ipswich, on my way to Sandy Bay 
[Rockport, Mass.].'* "Nov. 6. Pleasant, went to sd. bay; and got my 
poor son's dothes. " " Nov. 7. Returned home with a heayy heart " 

On the succeeding Sabbath, Nov. 11th, Mr. Noble preached to his 
people a most pathetic discourse, expressive of Christian sorrow 
and Christian resignation, from 2 Kings, iv: 26, the words of Elisha 
to his servant Gehasi, when he saw the Shunamite riding in haste 
toward Mt Garmel: '<Run now, I pray thee, to meet her, and 
say imto her, Is it well with thee ? is it well with thy husband ? 
is it well with the child ? And she answered, It is well." 

Having resided in New Market for two years, he left that place 
on the 29th of November, 1799, and with his family started for 
Westfield, Mass. On the 6th of December he reached his desti- 
nation. For the next sixteen months he continued to dwell in 
the midst of his kindred, from whom he had been so long sepa- 
rated, and found constant employment in the supply of pulpits in

Becket, Blandford, Feeding Hills, Ireland, (the last two being then 
parishes in West Springfield,) Montgomery, Rosaell, and Spring- 
field. On the 13th of April, 1801, he removed to Montgomery, 
Mass., and ministered regularly to the church established there, 
January 30, 1797, until the succeeding 4th of November, when 
he was installed their first pastor. Bev. Noah Atwater of West- 
field preached his installation sermon from 2 Tim. 4: 7. The Rev. 
Eliflha D. Barrett of Assumption, HI., bom Jan. 16, 1790, one of 
the oldest Presbyterian clergymen in the United States, and his 
sister, Mrs. Joanna Allyn of Holyoke, Mass., bom Dec. 19, 1791, 
both natives of Montgomery, remember the Bev. Seth Noble 

" I can say," writes the former, under date of May 8, 1876, "that I well 
remember Bev. Seth Noble. He was tall, and dim, but very active and 
energetic. His step was quick and firm and his gait graceful. He wore 
a white wig, which he used to powder. He was of a lively, social dispo- 
sition, snd agreeable in his manners. As a mau, he was much respected 
and esteemed. I was too young at that time to be a competent Judge of 
his scholarship, but to my youthful mind, he was a student As a 
preacher, he was sound apd able. His sermons, I recollect, were well 
prepared, unique, systematic, and evangelical. I do not remember any 
diiBculty between him and his people, as the cause of his removal. The 
society, I know, was weak, and the salary must have been small, and 
raised with difficulty. A claim which he had upon land in Ohio, was, I 
think, his inducement to remove to that state. " 

Mrs. Allyn, in letters dated May 5, and May 12, 1876, confirms 
in every respect the testimony of her brother, as to the character 
of Mr. Noble, and the esteem in which he was held at home and 
abroad, both as a man, a pastor, and a preacher. She also adds 
that he was an excellent singer, and taught singing-schools in 
Montgomeiy, and also generally sang in church. ** I can even 
now,*^ she writes,^' hear his sweet voice." 

The only printed productions, known, from the pen of Mr. Noble, 
are two sermons preached at Westhampton, Mass., June 26, 1802, 
from 2 Cor. 1: 22, which were published at Northampton, by T. 
M. Pomeroy, in 1804, making a pamphlet of nineteen pages. 

In his letter dated Sept 22, 1801, accepting the call of the 
Montgomery church, Mr. Noble confidently predicted that the 
salary which they offered him, would be insufficient for the sup- 
port even of «a small family." Partly perhaps on that account, 
he expressly provided, on the one hand, that if at any time, two- 
thirds of the church and congregation should wish the pastoral. 
relation dissolved, they were to ''part in peace; " and on the other.

'< after suitable notioe," he was to have liberty to leave them. 
OongresB, in oonsequenoe of his Nova Scotia lossesi had granted 
him 320 acres of land on the Scioto river, where Colnmbns now 
stands. In Montgomery, the parish gave him, in addition to his 
salary, the use of a small farm. Is it strange that he should have 
reasoned, that the virgin soil of Ohio would, in addition to his 
ministerial labors, yield him a better and easier support than the 
hard acres of Montgomery ? 

Though not formally dismissed from the latter place until Sept* 
16, 1806, he removed early in that year to Ohio. He is known to 
have preached, Apr. 9, 1806, at J. Andrus's, near Worthington, 
Ohio. He at once built a cabin in Columbus, where High street 
now runs, and south of Mound. Fields for ministerial labor 
immediately offered themselves. During the ensuing fifteen 
months he preached in the following settlements, viz.: Berkshire, 
Bigsby's, Derby, Franklinton, Granville, and Worthington. No 
Congregational or Presbyterian clergjrman is believed to have pre- 
viously held regular services nearer than Marietta, in that part of 
Ohio. The last sermon he is known to have presehed, was on the 
9th of August, 1807, at Franklinton, from*Matthew 11 : 28, "Come 
unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you 
rest." On tiie 15th of the following month, after a life laboriously 
spent in the Master^s service, he himself entered upon this promised 
rest, whose glories he had, as with his latest breath, so vividly 
depicted, snd was buried in the old graveyard at Franklinton. 
Yet the "march of empire," passing over and beyond, has left no 
sign or token of the place of his sepulchre. 

The farm of Mr. Noble, at Columbus, had it been advanta- 
geously sold, would have enriched his family. But half of it was 
given by him, before his death, to his son-in-law. Martin Bartholo- 
mew, and soon passed from his hands without an equivalent The 
other half was divided between his widow and children. The 
shares of his sons Joseph and Benjamin were unsold, as late as 
1829, and probably forfeited. His daughter, Mrs. Phillips, sold 
her share of twenty-three acres for the paltry sum of $37 1 The 
whole tract may not have netted the family more than one dollar 
per acre.

weeks absent in Boston, probably as agent of the town for procur- 
ing an act of incorporation, did not start for home until the day 
of her death, nor arrive there untO the day after her funeral. 
The first sermon which he preached after his return, had reference 
to his departed wife, and was from Hebrews xi: 13. "These all

Gen. William Shxpabb, s. of Dea. John and EUzabetL (Noble) 
Shepard, was b. in Westfield, Mass., Nov. 20, 1737, and there d. 
NoY. 16, 1817, n. 79. In the last French and Indian war, he 
enlisted at the age of seventeen, probably in 1754, was a lieutenant 
at the age of twenty-one, and at the age of twenty two, had received 
a captain's commission tmder Oen. Amherst. He was in the war 
six years, was in the battles at Fort William Henry, Ticonderoga, 
Crown Point Isle an Noiz, St John's, and Montreal, and at the 
close of the war returned to his family, with whom he remained 
nntQ the commencement of the revolutionary stmggla Soon after 
the afUr at Concord, in April, 1775, he joined the troops at Cam- 
bridge, for the defence of the province. He received, May 19, 
1775, a commission as lieutenant-colonel, in the regiment com- 
manded by Col. Timothy Danielson, and in Dec., 1776, was ap- 
pointed a colonel in the continental army. He aided in bringing 
our troops from Long Island. In 1780, he had a general's com- 
mission under Lafayette, and continued in that station until Ihe 
dose of the war. He fought in twenty-two battles, establishing a 
high character for bravery, sound judgment, and humanity. On 
the restoration of peace, Oen. Shepard returned to his farm, and, 
like the other military patriots of ^t period, after devoting seven 
or eight years to the service of his country, with very little pecu- 
niary reward, became an industrious and peaceful citizen. When 
the insurrection occurred under Shays, in 1786, on account of the 
great taxes then imposed to pay the debt of the Revolutionary war, 
QesL Shepard being then a brigadier-general of the militia in Hamp- 
shire County, was ordered out to suppress the unlawful movement. 
He had particular orders to guard the military arsenal at Spring- 
field, which it was believed the insurgents would attack and seize. 
On this trying occasion, he conducted with equal firmness and for- 
bearance. He stationed the men under his command* near the 
arsenal, and when the insurgents approached, ordered them to 
retire. But they continued to advance. He ordered them a sec- 
ond time to retire, assuring them that he should certainly fire upon 
them, if they persisted. At last it became apparent to Oen. Shepard 
that blood must be shed, but even then his humanity did not for- 
sake him. He directed a discharge of cannon to their right and 
left, and then over their heads. But the insurgents still advanced 

Digitized by 



with an unbroken front They had arriYed within fifty rods of 
Sh^pard*8 battery, when he ordered his cannon to be diacharged 
npon the centre of the coliunn. The smoke rolled up, and exhibited 
to the goYemment troops a most pitiable scene of cowardice and 
confusion. Three of the Insurgents lay dead upon the field, and a 
fourth was mortally wounded. Breaking up with the cry of 
« murder," the cowsjilly host turned in retreat, and an attempt of 
Shays to display his column was entirely abortive. They had been 
told by their desperate leaders, who mistook the man, that Shepard 
would not dare to give the command to fire; or would not be 
obeyed by his men, if he gave such orders. He refrained from 
this alternative until it became his imperious duty to take the 
decisive measure, and save the commonwealth from anarchy and 

Gten. Shepard was a presidential elector, 1789 and 1792; a mem- 
ber of the executive council of Massachusetts, 1792-96; and rep- 
resentative in Oongress, 1797-1803. In 1796, he was appointed by 
the governor of Massachusetts, to treat with the Penobscot Indians, 
and subsequently by the national government, to treat with the Six 
Nations. He was not only a brave military officer, but possessed 
traits of character which rendered him respected as a citizen, and 
beloved as a relative and friend. Like many of his companions in 
arms, who jeoparded their lives for their country, he was quite 
poor and destitute in his old age. Of him and of them, when 
tempted, in 1783, to retain arms, and to force Congress to pay them 
for their services, an occasion of great excitement and danger. 
Gen. Washington said ''that the crowning glory of their character 
as patriots would have been wanting, but for their disinterestedness, 
their love of order, and their submission to the civil authority.*^ 
The prominent traits in the character of Oen. Shepard were sound 
judgment, undaunted courage, and unbending integrity. Not only 
was he a lover of his country, but also a devoted Christian. He 
was chosen, April 29, 1789, a deacon of the Cong, church in West- 
field, and retained the office for twenty-eight years, until his death. 
His plain, unpainted two-story house on the right hand side of 
Shepard lane (now Franklin street), about half a mile from Elm 
street, was taken down, a few years since, and on its site a modem 
house erected, now, 1877, occupied by Chauncey Allen. A plain 
stone erected to his memory in the old burying yard of Westfield, 
bears the following inscription:

At the time of Gen. Provost^s invasion of the United States 
from Canada, which ended in his defeat ftt Flattsburg, and his 
hasty return to Montreal, Boger Noble was a volunteer, with the 
rank of sergeant, but was not in the battle, being absent on some 
oiBdAl duty. For some political reason, Gk>v. Chittenden of Ver- 
mont would not call out the militia, but the Oreen Mountain boys 
would go, notwithstanding, to repel the invaders of their country. 
Boger Noble subsequently obtained the title of captain, probably 
under the peace establishment.

LnoiUB BoLTwooD, B. of WiUUm and Eumoe (Noble) Boltwood, 
was b. in Amherst, Mass., Mch. 16, 1792, and there d. July 10, 
1 872, m, 80. Inheriting from his paternal anceaton great mnacnlar 
Btiength, he was in his youth diatinguiahed for his skill in all ath- 
• letic exercises, particulsj*ly as a wrestler. His early education was 
obtained in the district schools of his native town, but his advantages 
could not have been great, as the annual appropriation for the 
six schools, was only $333.33. His first nude teachers were 
Martin Field, then of LeTerett, afterwards an able lawyer of New- 
fane, Yt, and Bela KeUogg, then of Amherst, subsequently the 
beloved pastor of the Cong, church in Avon, Conn. Though 
appreciating the advantages of the district school, he still had long- 
ings for a better education than it could furnish. His father, a 
farmer in moderate circumstances, with a family of eight children 
dependent on him for their support^ felt that he could illy spare the 
labors of the only son who could aid him on the farm, and who 
was then able to do the work of a man, and was obliged to tell him 
that he could render him no assistance, beyond giving him his time 
until he should come of age. But a liberal education (he youug 
man was determined to have. He accordingly commenced, in 
1807, in the district school, the study of Latin, under William D. 
Williamson, afterward an eminent lawyer of Bangor, Me. Three 
months were devoted to study, and the remaining nine to farm labor. 
The next winter, he pursued his classical studies for three months 
more, and the year after, attended for about twelve weeks, the Had- 
ley grammar school, of which a Mr. Lyman was then master. 
With such a preparation as this, nine months of disconnected study, 
in the fall of 1810, he entered the Freshman class in Williams^ 
College. And now commenced the struggle, as his preparation for 
college was poor, and he wab obliged to support himself by teach- 
ing. The winter before entering college, he had established so good 
a reputation as teacher in B^chertown, Mass., that when it was 
known that he desired still farther «<to exercise his gift," in that 
direction, the centre school of Amherst was at once tendered him. 
Here he taught with success, during the winters of his Frsshman, 
Sophomore, and Senior years. The attendance on his schools was 
large, averaging at least one hundred scholars, of ages varying from 
four to twenty years. Steel penis and books with printed copies 
were then unknown, and in order to prepare pens and copies for 
more than one half of his pupils, he was obliged to spend one hour

before And the same length of time after echooL Seventeen dollars 
per month, exclusive of board, for the first two years, and twenty 
dollars for the last year, was the pittance for which he was thank- 
ful to labor. 

His college class was one of the largest, as well as one of the best, 
which his Alma Mater sent forth during the first quarter century of 
her existence. It contained an unusual number of young men who 
afterward attained to eminence, among whom were the Hon. Austin 
E. Wing of Detroit, Mich., for several years delegate in Congress; 
the Hon. Samuel F. Vinton of Gallipolis, 0., for twenty-two years 
a member of Congress, at one time the unsuccessful Whig 
candidate for governor of Ohio, and an eminent lawyer; and 
Rev. Orville Dewey, D. D., a distinguished Unitarian divine, the 
last survivor of the class, now spending th.e evening of a useful life 
on his paternal acres in Sheffield, Mass. With the same class, the 
Hon. Nathaniel P. Tallmadge, early a member of the United States 
Senate from New York, and subsequently governor of Wisconsin, 
was for a time connected. The first and second of these were Mr. 
Boltwood's most intimate college friends, and the latter, before his 
removal to Union College, was for a time his room-mate. Among 
such young men, he at once took high rank as a scholar, and not- 
withstanding his necessary absence during three winters, main- 
tained his standing, until the end of his course. In assigning the 
appointments for commencement, the faculty of the college after 
deliberating long whether to give the valedictory to Lucius Bolt- 
wood or Orville Dewey, finally compromised the matter by giving 
the valedictory to Dewey, and then deciding, contrary to the usual 
custom, that Boltwood should deliver the master's oration, at the 
end of three years. 

He was distinguished in college, not only for his scholarship, 
but also for an ease and affability of manners eminently calculated 
to gain him friends. It is the united testimony, not only of his 
own classmates^ but also of the members of other classes, that no 
one in his class was more popular than he. He stood high as a 
writer, was a fair debater, and in consequence was chosen the first 
president of his literary society, the Philotechnian. May not any 
college graduate well envy the estimate of his character drawn, 
more than forty years after his graduation, by his revered and 
venerated teacher. Professor Chester Dewey? '* Lucius Boltwood, 
a good scholar, of good character, and of good influence. His

He read law with Hon. Samuel Fowler Dickinson, an eminent 
attorney of Amber^t, was admitted to the bar in August, 1817, and 
entered immediately into company witb bis instructor. In 1820, 
he opened an office of bis own in Amherst, and continued in active 
practice until 1836. About that time, he made large purchases of 
land in Michigan, the care of which compelled him gradually to 
abandon the law. He, however, continued to discharge the duties 
of a civil magistrate, until within a few years of his death. He was, 
from 1 828-64, secretary of the corporation of Amherst College ; from 
1833-66, commissioner of the Charity fund of the same institu- 
tion; and from November, 1833, to October, 1836, president of 
the Amherst bank. Amherst was always his home, his house, 
just north of the colleges, having been built by him, in 1835. At 
the time of his death, he was the senior member of the Hampshire 
county bar, and the eldest native male resident within the limits 
of the West parish of Amherst. 

Mr. Boltwood was a man of medium height, with a dark blue 
eye, and an exceedingly earnest expression. He was a man of com- 
manding presence, /<a gentleman of the old school," having worn 
from early manhood a rufiSed shirt, and until within a few years 
of his death, a blue dress coat with gilt buttons. Even down to 
old age, he retained an erect form, elastic step, and dignified 

. He was a well-read lawyer, a wise counseUor, and an excellent 
magistrate. A diligent and thoughtful student of the law, with a 
wonderfully retentive memory, he had at command whatever he 
had read. Though npt a fluent speaker, he had a faculty of con- 
veying his ideas intelligently and in a remarkably concise manner. 
Those who consulted him in relation to legal questions, always 
found his opinions conservative and judicious. During the fifty 
years that he ofSciated as a magistrate, his decisions evinced a wide 
knowledge of the law, and a remarkable clearness of judgment. 

He was also a vigorous writer. Some of the keenest articles 
which have ever appeared in the newspapers of the county, were 
the productions of his pen, published almost always anonymously, 
as he was the last man thus to seek notoriety. 

He had quite a taste for genealogical and historical research. 
No dtizen of Amherst knew so much of its early and later history, 
or was so often consulted for historical information.

He WIS no politician or office-seeker. Politics, as a trade, lie 
abhorred. To sacoeed in sach a field, leqnired traits of character 
which he neither possessed nor eoTeted. In his composition there 
was nothing sly, crafty, or deceitful; on the contrary, eveiything 
was fair and open. It is not known that he ever allowed his name 
to be used in connection with any political office, to which he had 
the least expectation of being elected. 

He was, moreover, characterized by great benevolence, ever a 
cheerful contributor to the charities of the day, and always ready 
to lend his aid for the relief of the poor and suffering. At no 
period of his life did he tun a deaf ear to the poor, but was as 
ready to listen patiently, and give gratuitous advice to them, as to 
those from whom he expected a reward. In cases of sorrow and 
affliction, he was prompt in rendering efficient sympathy. 

He was also noted for his public spirit At all times, he took a 
deep interest in every measure, which he thought was calculated 
to benefit the town or its inhabitants. He was a warm friend of 
the academy and female seminary, a trustee of both, and for many 
years, secretary of the former. When Amherst College was pro- 
jected, connected as he was with Hon. Samuel F. Dickinson, one 
of the leaders in the enterprise, he threw himself with all his youth- 
ful ardor, into the work of helping forward the institution. He 
counted it a great honor that he had enjoyed the friendship of its 
early trustees, and in sympathy for the cause, cheerfully performed 
the duties of secretazy of the corporation, without compensation, 
for thirty-six years. 

He also favored the establishment of the Agricultural College, 
though, in his dread of debt, municipal as well as personal, doubt- 
ing the policy of iiApoaing upon those who should come after him, 
the payment of the money necessary to secure its location at 

He always followed strictly his conscientious ideas of right. 
He was one of the earliest and most earnest advocates of the cause 
of temperance. His heart was touched with sympathy for the 
suffering dave, and he was one of the originators of the Liberty 
party, and in 1841, its first candidate for governor of Massachu- 
setts. Educated in the Whig party, it was no easy thing for him 
to cut loose from an organisation which embraced most of his 
intimate friends. Though party ties were then stronger than now, 
BO fear of losing popular favor for a moment deterred him from a 
step^hich he believed to be ri^t Oreat as was his desire for 

Digitized by 



emandpatioD, his political efforts were to this end alone — to check 
the extension of slavery by erery oonstitational method. Of its 
ultimate downfall, he had no reasonable doubt Though he dared 
not hope that the blessing he so earnestly craved would come in 
his day, it was not the less a source of the deepest thanksgiving to 
Ood, that he was spared to behold it, in all its fullness. 

He may be said to have been a successful business man. In the 
settlement of many large estates, and as guardian of minors, he 
always performed every trust with fidelity. For thirty-three years 
he managed the Charity fund of Amherst GoUege, without the loss 
of a single dollar. Drawn, unwisely as many thought, in 1835, 
from professional duties into real estate operations at the West, 
undismayed by the high taxes and large rates of interest which he 
was obliged to pay, he kept up good courage, until the tide turned. 
From the sales which he subsequently made, he was able to sup- 
port his family respectably, give his sons the best educational 
advantages, and leave at his death a comfortable estate. 

From early manhood, he was distinguished for religious principle. 
This might be inferred from the fact that his chosen companions 
and intimate friends were always the best men in the community. 
But beyond this, the golden rule seemed ever to have been his 
governing principle. Though for almost sixty years a consistent 
member of the Congregational church, he was no sectarian. Good 
men of every name and creed he loved, and was ever ready to 
aid liberally all the religious denominations of the town. 

In confixmation of the character as above drawn, the testimony 
of a few persons, most of whom had a life-long acquaintance with 
Mr. Boltwood, may not be inappropriately introduced here. 

Bev. Orville Dewey, D.D., of Sheffield, Mass., his only surviving 
dassmate, who never met him after graduation, in acknowledging 
the receipt of a copy of a daguereotype of Mr. Boltwood, taken 
in 1859, writes^ in 1872, as foUows: 

"It astonishes me, that the face so much resembles what I remember in 
the youth of nearly sixty years ago. Only there is a fine manliness in the 
mature countenance, and a benlgnty, too, not to be looked for in the face 
of a boy, and also a calmness; for the predominating expression then was 
earnestness. I think I never saw a boy-face that was more earnest His 
mouth was a very mobile feature, and his lips often quivered with emotion. 
You see that I have a very distinct recollection of his person, and yet 
beyond this, and his scholarship, in which I feared him more than any of 
oar number, I do not know that I can recall anything which would help 
you in a biographical sketch."

Hon. Abner Hftseltine of Junestown, N. Y., for some years a 
member of CongresB, and aubeequently a judge of Chautanqua 
Co., the sole sarvivor of the class of 1815 in Williams College, 
bears this testimony to the character and position of Mr. Boltwoodi 
when in college: 

"The penual of your letter revived the memories of my youtli. the 
scenes, the pleasures, the toils, the anxieties of college life. I seemed U) 
be surrounded for the moment with the companions of tliose days, and to 
be witnessing the athletic sports on the spacious lawn in front of the old 
East college. Conspicuous among them was young Boltwood, an acl^uow]- 
edged leader, and a very model of manly beauty. There were Rice and 
Wing, both a little resembling Saul of Gilboa, in their fair proportions, 
and in towering somewhat above their fellowa There, too, was the lame 
Chapin, primus, moving around with the aid of his staff, and amusing the 
beholders with his keen remarks, his drollery and fun. 

"This, perhaps, answers one of your inquiries; but I will say more 
directly, Mr. Boltwood was particularly distinguished for his personal 
activity and skill in all athletic exercises. Perhaps his passion for these 
sports and amusements generally, especially in the latter part of his course, 
detracted too much from his lessons, and contributed in some degree to the 
success of the very studious Dewey, in obtaining the coveted valedictory. 
That it was the expectation not only of his class, but also of the students 
generally, that Boltwood would win the prize, is certainly the fact He 
was undoubtedly the most popular individual in the class. His scholar- 
ship was of the first order, and his social qualities were eminently calcu- 
lated to gain him friends. He was a great favorite hi his class, and in the 
coUege. He stood high as a writer, and was a fair speaker." 

Mrs. Henry Jones of Bridgeport^ Conn., the only surviving child 
of Noah Webster, LL.D., the lezioographer, for a time a resident 
of Amherst, thus writes respecting him: 

*'l thank you for the picture of Mr. Boltwood. It is a strikhig like- 
ness, and tells the story of his life, revealing in ito expression, that he 
had caught the spirit of the angels, who sang, ' on earth peace, good will 
toward men.' My early recollections of him are all pleasant. From his 
graduation, he was a familiar friend of my father's, calling often at our 
house on the village green. I remember how entirely my father trusted 
him, and always spoke of him with respect, showing his high regard for 
his character and abilities. And in later years, he was glad to watch his 
p r ogres s in lif e« and to know that he was placed in positions of honor 
and trust" 

Hon. Edward Dickinson of Amherst^ a member of Congress, 
for thirty-eight years treasurer of Amherst College, a pupil, neigh* 
bor, brother lawyer, and for fifty years an intimate friend^ says of 
Mr. Boltwood: 

" He was an able teacher, a thoroughly read lawyer, a man of sound 

Digitized by 



Judgment and of great insight into the character of those with whom he 
became acquainted. He officiated as a magistrate for many yearSp in the 
trial of civil and criminal cases, and in that capacity evinced great dis- 
crimination, legal acumen, and clearness and independence of Judgment, 
which enabled him to arriye at right results. I remember only one case, 
in which his Judgment was reversed, on appeal to a higher court" 

His college classmate, the Hon. Caleb Rice of Springfield, Mass., 
long sherifi of the county of Hampden, the first mayor of Spring- 
field, and for more than twenty years the president of the Maes. 
Mutual Life Insurance company, bears his testimony in the fol- 
lowing words: 

"Mr. Boltwood established a character above suspicion, being a man 
of sound and discriminating mind, endowed with a good share of common 
sense, and the strictest integrity. Of such characters we need more." 

Profoflsor Charles U. Shepard, of Amherst CoUege, who has 
spent yean beneath his roof, thus writes respecting him: 

"He was a good example of 'a gentleman of the old school,' as the 
designation is understood in the larger interior towns of New England. 
A little precise in expression, he was nevertheless an animated and pleas- 
ant talker, remarkably alert in comprehending whatever was advanced, 
and yielding a courteous opportunity for replies. His language was 
always forcible, and clear, while it was remarkably free from words or 
phrases having any approach to modem slang. A ready wit enlivened 
his conversation, while in the aptness of his anecdotes, and the felicity 
of their recital, he was rarely surpassed. In early life, he had been a dili- 
gent reader of the standard English writers in prose and verse, and hav- 
ing a retentive memory, always had at command an unusual store of 
material for increasing the interest of his discourse." 

Hon. Samuel F. Lyman of Northampton, Mass., for many 
years judge of probate for Hampshire county, remarks respecting 
Mr. Boltwood: 

"He was universally and Justly respected in this county, for his high 
moral principle, his sterling integrity, his unflinching and fearless advo- 
cacy of a holy but unpopular cause, his pure and spotless life, and the 
distinguished courtesy of his manners." 

Hon. Emory Washburn of Cambridge, Mass., judge of the 
Court of common pleas, governor of Maasachusetts, and for many 
years professor of law in Harvard College, gives his estimate of 
him in the following words: 

" When at the beginning of Junior year, I Joined the class of 1817 in 
Williams College, the name of Lucius Boltwood had not ceased being 
spoken of, as one of the distinguished men of his class. I do not recall 
the name of any one, whom I so often heard spoken of, as his. I am veiy 
happy in saying, that the opinion I formed of him by hearsay, before I

had the pleasure of meeting him penomdly, was confirmed and strength- 
ened, the longer and more fully I knew him. I was proud to reckon him 
as an alumnus of our college. I never met him, that I was not reminded 
of his courtesy as a gentlenum, and of the ease and affability which 
marked his intercourse with others. The last time I had the pleasure of 
meeting him, was at Williamstown, in 1867, at the conmiencement of our 
Alma Mater. The scenes and the associations seemed to rerive in him 
the vigor as well as the sensibilities of his college dsys, and we both for- 
got for the time being, that half a century had been working changes in 
us, as in the world around us, since we had gone out from that sequestered 
spot, to take our chances on the stage of active life." 

Dr. Oardlner Domnce, a graduate of Williams CoUege in the 
class of 1820, for muiy years a practicing physician in Amherst, 
and in Sunderland, an adjoining town, and afterwards of Attica, 
N. T., says of Mr. Boltwood: 

"He was a patriotic and an enterprising citizen, and to his dying day 
retained the warmest interest in whatever concerned the prosperity of the 
town or countiy. He wss an early and active member of the Liberty 
party, and through his wise counsels, and Judicious proceeding, it owed 
much of its subsequent success. After a long and intimate acquaintance 
with Mr. Boltwood, I can say with sincerity and truthfulness, that few 
men have ever lived, whose example, in every department of life, has 
been more faultless than his. '* 

BeT. Samuel P. Parker, D.D., now of Stockbridge, Mass., but 
formerly of Amherst, gives these impresdons of faim, after he had 
passed his threescore yean and ten: 

"I met Mr. Boltwood for the first time, in the fall of 1864, on the occa- 
sion of my first visit to Amherst In December, of the same year, I re- 
moved to that town, to take charge of the new parish of Grace church. 
Mr. Boltwood attended frequently the services of the Episcopal church, 
and aided the movement liberally, by contributing to the building of the 
church and its support I was a frequent visitor at his house, and may 
venture to say» became weU acquainted with his habitual thoughto, feel- 
ings, and life. The impression on my mind made by these four yesrs of 
intercourse, is the picture of a man of great natural sagacity, improved 
by labor, and experience as a lawyer, and by large contact with mankind. 
His conversation was replete with good sense, and with the evidence of 
wide reading, and great sprightliness of mind, commended by liveliness 
of manner, and a prevailing courtliness and urbanity, which made all in 
his socie^ feel that he was their friend. None can f oiget his radiant 
smile, can^t so to the life in his photograph. The consequence was, that 
he was a general favorite, and his house a delightful place of resort I 
always went to it with anticipations of great enjoyment, and left it en- 
livened, invigorated, and warmed. His dear wife, with her strong and 
oniversal sympathy, and her great brightness, ever reinforced his smile 
snd kind words. The conversation used to take a broad range fh>m 
grave to gay, and wit and kindness flowed in equal and abundant measure.

" Ab a ChrittUm, Mr. Boltwood'8 purity, directnesB, simplicity, wAnnth, 
and abaenoe of cant, made a deep impression on me, as did his qualities 
as a man, a friend, and a companion. I never left his company without 
feeling that he was a good num. ' Bound in the faith which was once 
deliTered unto the sainto,* his was a heart religion, binding him fast to the 
SaTlour, God, and clasping closely all men of eveiy complexion, creed, 
and condition. I believe that his Christianity was a personal law of life, 
intelligently held, firmly grasping the truth, breathing ever sweet charity, 
and in the sympathy of the Master, embracing the world. Ood bless the 
memoiy of my dear friend! God raise up many like him— the true, the 
intelligent, the bold, the courteous, the loving, gentle, humble follower 
of Jesus Christ!" 

•• Why weep ye then for him, who, having won 
The bound of num's appointed years, at last. 

Life's blessings all enjoyed, life's labors done, 
Serenely to his final rest has passed; 

While the soft memory of his virtues, yet. 
Lingers like twilight hues, when the bright sun is set. 

His youth was innocent, his riper age 
Marked with some act of goodness every day; 

And watched by eyes that loved him, calm and sage, 
Faded his late declining years away. 

Meekly he gave his being up, and went 
To share the holy rest that waits a life well spent"

Dr. Lbsteb Noble, s. of John, was b. in Blandford, Mass., Nov. 
11, 1819. He commenced the study of dentistry, Sept. 17, 1846, 
with Dr. Nathan Keep of Boston, and remained with him nearly 
three years. He then stadied analytical chemistry, for five or 
six months, with Prof. E. N. Horsford, in the Lawrence Scientific 
School, Cambridge, Mass., attending at the same time the chemi- 
cal lectures of Prof. John W. Webster of Harvard College. He 
joined the Baltimore College of Dental Surgery, in Oct., 1849, 
and received in June, 1850, the degree of D.D.S. During the 
sessions of 1851-52, he was demonstrator of mechanical dentistry, 
giving most of the instruction in the making of artificial teeth. 
While in the office of Dr. Keep, he assosted that gentleman in 
making a set of artificial teeth, for Dr, George Parkman of 
Boston. After the murder of Dr. Parkman, Drs. Keep and Noble 
had the disagreeable duty of identifying the artificial teeth, found 
with a burned head in Prof. Webster^s stove. Their testimony 
was the only reliable proof th^t the burned head was that of Dr. 

Dr. Noble practised his profession, 1852-60, in Washington, 
D. C. His health having become impaired, he removed to Long- 
meadow, Mass., and in May, 1869, opened a dental office in Spring- 
field. He continues, Jan., 1878, to reside in Longmeadow.

Matthew (Noble, b. of Thomas, was b. abt. 1668, and d. in 
Sheffield, Mass., abt. 1744, ee. abt. 76. He put himself mider the 
watc{i of the TVestfield church, Aug. 19, 1694, and together with 
his wife, joined the same, Nov. 3, 1728, after their removal to 
Sheffield, the church at the latter place not being then organized. 
The precise date of his removal to Sheffield has not been ascer- 
tained. It is known, however, that the. land in that township, 
which, in 1725, had been divided into lots bj John Ashley and 
Ebenezer Pomeroy, was very soon occupied by settlers, who came 
in, and planted themselves upon the river bank. 

In a "History of Berkshire County, Massachusetts, by gentlemen 
in the county, clergymen and laymen," 12^, PittsOeld, 1829, is a 
carefully prepared dcetch of Sheffield, by Rev. James Bradford, 
who on the 13th of Ckstober, 1813, was settled over the Congrega- 
tional church in that place. In this sketch, appears the f oUowing 
statement, respecting the first settler of Sheffield: 

" Mr. Obadiah Noble was the first white man who came to reside in 
Sheffield. He was from Westfield, and came and spent the first winter 
here with no other human associates than the Indians. In the spring, he 
went back to Westfield, and in June, his daughter, afterwards the wife of 
Dea. Daniel Kellogg, returned here with him. She was the first white 
woman that came into the town. She travelled from Westfield, when 
about sixteen years of age, on horseback, bringing a bed with her, and * 
lodged one night in the wilderness, in what is now the east part of Tyring- 

The above statement has been quoted with more or less fullness, 
by J. W. Barber, in "Massachusetts Historical Collections'*; by J. 
O. Holland, in his << History of Western Massachusetts," and more 
recently by J. O. Barnard, and 6. A. Hoadley, in their addresses 
at the Centennial celebration of the town of Sheffield, on the 19th 
of June, 1876. 

Mr. George D. Noble, an intelligent citizen of Sheffield, bom 
there on the 23d of August, 1813, the great grandson of Obadiah 
Noble, informed me, in 1876, that his grandfather Nathaniel Noble, 
whom he well remembers, and who died, May 28, 1824, ». 87, used 

Digitized by 



to say, <' My father, Obadiah Noble, was the first white settler of 
Sheffield; he came from Westfield to Sheffield in the fall of the 
year, lived the first winter in a wigwam, and the next spring went 
for his wife, and soon brought her, a bride, to Sheffield.*' 

To Mr. Bradford's statement, the objections are these: In the 
first place, there is no evidence that Obadiah Noble ever had a 
daughter, his family consisting of five sons, whose births are 
recorded on the town record of Sheffield. In the second place, 
Hannah Noble, who subsequently became the wife of Dea. Daniel 
Kellogg, is known to have been the daughter of Matthew^ and not 
the daughter of Obadiah Noble. 

To the statement of Mr. George D. Noble, we have this objection 
to make, that in 1724, when Hannah Noble, afterward the wife of 
Dea. Daniel Kellogg, was sixteen years of age, Obadiah Noble, her 
brother, was but eighteen, quite too young to have been the pioneer 
settler of the town. Again, the eldest child of Obadiah Noble 
having been bom May 22, 1734, it is not probable that he was 
married much before the year 1733, whereas, the first settler would, 
according to O. D. Noble, have been married as early as 1725. 

We incline, therefore, to the opinion, that if any person by the 
name of Noble was the first settler of Sheffield, it was Matthew, and 
not his son Obadiah. Matthew is -known to have been there on 
the 8d of February, 1727, for at that date, as appears by Hampshire 
Deeds, E. p. 61, << Matthew Noble, of Housatunnuck, husbandman, 
in consideration of a certain sum paid by Capt. John Ashley of 
Westfield, gentleman," makes over to him '<two certain tracts or 
'Paicells of lands, with a house, bam and ortchard or ortcharding 
upon it, which Parcells of lands Containing in quantity by Estima- 
tion about two hundred acres, lying and being partly within the 
Bounderies and precincts of y* township of Springfield, and partly 
within y* boundaries of the township of Westfield, in the afores* 
County, it being a tract of land, which the s' Mathew Noble for- 
merly Dwelt upon, and lyeth Easterdly of y* mountaine, which 
rangeth between the s' Westfield and Springfield, and alsoe lyeth 
Southerlie of Westfield river." 

If Matthew Noble was in Sheffield, in Feb., 1727, he could not 
have removed during the winter, but must certainly have removed 
as early as the previous year. How much earlier he fixed his abode 
there, we have no means of determining. 

In 1733, Matthew Noble issued the following warrant for the 
first town meeting in Sheffield:

"Hampshibb m. Bbefrbld, Jan. 11. 1788. 

"To tbe Constable or Constables of tbe Town of Sheffield, or Either of 
them Greeting. In His Majesty's Name, you are Required forthwith to 
warn the free Holders, or Proprietors that are approbated settlers in the 
said Town of Sheffield, that they meet at the House of Mr. Obadiah 
Noble, on Wensday the sixteenth Day of January Currant, at ten of the 
Clock In the Morning; and signifie unto them that they are then and their 
Required to Chuse Town Officers to serve the Town Respectively from 
the Date of said Meeting, untill the time of annually Chusing Town Offi- 
cers, which is in March Next. 

"This warrant is Given under my Hand Persuant to the Power and

meeting to Chuse Town Officers &c., and you are Hereby Directed to

Given under my Hand the day above said. 


In puTsaance with this wamuit^ a meeting was held, of which 
the foUowing is a record:

The first minister called by the Sheffield dinrch, was doubtless 
Mr. Ebeneser Devotion.* The church records are not to be 
found, but on the town records, appear the following votes, under 
date of June 7, 1734: 

"Voted to Give m' Ebeneser Devotion A call to the work of the min- 
istria In this Town. 

"Mathew Noble, Esekiel Ashley and Philip Calender ware Chosen a 
Committee to Treate with m' Devotion In order for Settling In the work

in 1782; was settled 1785, as first pastor of the Cong, church in Scotland

Joseph Noblb, s. of Matthew, was b. in Westfield, Mass., Oct 
8, 1691, and d. in Great Harrington, Mass., Feb. 12, 1758, ». 66. 
He removed to that part of Sheffield, which is now Great Barring- 
ton, Mass., prolMtbly as early as 1727, and is supposed to have lived, 
about one and one-fourth miles south of the centre of the village, 
cm land where his son Eli afterward resided, and now, 1875, owned 
by Ebeneser Chadwick. This then, as now, was the most southerly 
location of any house in Great Barrington, on the meadow road to 
Sheffield, the land south, for a mile or more, being low and unfit 
for building lots. Joseph Noble was one of the building com-

merchant, and on the Sheffield rate of Apr. 18, 1779, but three 
persons paid a higher tax than he. 

According to the statement of Rev. OrviUe Dewey, D. D., in his 

sermon at the centennial celebration at Sheffield, June 18, 1876, 

Dan Raymond was a noted tory, and upon him suspicion at onoe 

rested, on the 5th of July. 1776, when the liberty-tree on Sheffield 


Digitized by 



green, erected the previoos day, was found level with the ground. 
When charged with the outrage, he did not deny that it had been 
committed at hia instigation. As the law did not reach his case, a 
meeting of the citizens was held, to decide what should be done to 
avenge the insulted honor of the town. Their decision was, that 
tbe people should stand in two rows down through the broad street, 
and that between them the offender should pass, and taking off his 
hat to every individual as he passed, diould say, ** I ask your par- 
don.** Having subsequently ascertained who was the person Ray- 
mond had procured to cut down the liberty-tree, they dressed him 
in a coat of tar and feathers, put him upon a bareboned horse, and 
compelled him to ride through the whole street, stop at every 
house, and ask pardon for what he had done. In a note to Dr. 
Dewey's discourse, referring to Dan Ra3rmond, Rev. Mason Noble, 
Jr., of Sheffield, says: " From the record, one is compelled to con- 
clude, that the < Sheffield Tory ' met with a change of heart, for, in 
1780, he was chosen assessor, and a member of the 'committee to 
adjust town debts,' and * overseer of the work-house,* and ekairman 
of a committee to engage recruits for the Continental army. 
Moreover, his third son, bom November 1, 1783, was named 
George Washington Raymond." 

At the breaking out of the Revolutionary war, Raymond may 
have stood aloof from the popular movement, yet, if so, he doubt- 
lees '*met with a change of heart," earlier than 1780, or even July 
5, 1776, for his name appears as a private on the roll of Lieut 
Enoch Noble's militia company, in CoL Mark Hopkins* regiment of 
foot, being the first regiment in the county of Berkshire, dated 
Sheffield, June 13, 1776, which may be found on page 67 of the 
** Proceedings at the Centennial celebration of the town of Sheffield, 
June 18, and 19, 1876." In relation to this matter, there seems to 
be so great a discrepancy of dates, that the conclusion is irresistible, 
either that the events related must have transpired at an eaxiier 
date than July, 1776, or that some other person than Raymond 
must have been the principal actor.

GxHTLEMEK: Thaddeus Noble, gunsmith, of this District, has made 
application to us, the Committee of the said District, for our recommend- 
ation in his behalf to your Committee, as an able workman at his trade or 
occupation of gunmalcing. Being willing to lend said Noble our assist- 
ance in such a necessary and laudable business, at such a time as this, 
when muskets are so much needed to defend our natural rights and liber- 
ties against the potent ^wer of Great Britain, we do accordingly hereby 
recommend said Noble as a workman at said business, so far as we are 
acquainted therein, and can inform that we have often seen of his said 
work, and that it has been generally to the acceptance of the pubUck. 
And as said Noble may not be able to procure all such materials as may 
be necessary for carrying on said business. If you, gentlemen should con- 
tract with said Noble for making musketa, &c., if he should want money 
for any part of the business, we desire you to furnish him therewith to 
the amount of thirty pounds, if he requires that sum; and any order that 
you shall have occasion to give from time to time in the premises, we 
shall readily obey. If you grant said request, please to let this Conunittee 
know, and the terms, &c 

Gentlemen, we are your very obedient servants, in the name and behalf 
of said Committee.

He graduated, in 1763, at the College of New Jersey, in the same

tice T^ppan Reeve of Connecticut. He was ordained, Nov. 5, 
1771, as pastor of the Cong, churcb in Orford, N. H., and owing 
to the inability of the people to continue his salary, was dismissed 
Dec 31, 1777. During the American revolution, hewasfor atime 
a chaplain of New Hampshire troops, and was present at the sur- 
render, after the battle of Saratoga. Soon after 1777, he removed 
to Tinmouth, Vt., and after the organization of the courts, was for 
eight or ten years clerk of Rutland county, Biid for nineteen 
years subsequent to 1786, a justice of the peace. He was a man 
of great benevolence. In the words of one who remembers him 
well, " He was of medium size, with broad shoulders, full, deep 
breast^ muscular frame, atout neck, full face, dark eyes, and dark 
hair, slightly silvered with gray." For six years^ he was the sole 
survivor of his coUege dass. He retained all his faculties, until

the French and Indian wars, his father having been drafted to march 
from Sheffield to the Canada line, and finding it inconvenient to leave 
his family, Roger volunteered to go in his place. Having been 
fully equipped for the march,, he tore himself away from his anx- 
ious mother, who had a strong impression that die diduld never 
again see his face» and took his departure through the wilderness 
for Canada. While not on duty, he used to mend the shoes of 
the soldiers, whose feet would bleed as they marched over the 
frosen ground. At length, having obtained leave of absence to

visit his frienda, in company with six whites and two friendly 
Indians^ he started for home. ^ hile the whites were asleep on the 
second night of their Jonmey, the Indians stole all their provisions 
and fled. For six days, Noble and his companions marched on 
without food, and were on the point of laying down to die« through 
complete exhaustion, when they came in sight of a house. There 
they were refreshed by food, and resuming their journey, reached 
their homes in safety. 

At the time of Wolfe's death, 1759, Roger Noble is said to have 
been on the Plains of Abraham, in the capacity of an officer's waiter. 
In the American revolution, he was in the battle of Bunker Hill, 
and used afterward to say, that as he heard the bullets whistling 
over his head, while marching up the hill, he felt some fear, which 
vanished, however, the moment he came into action. He served 
during most of the war, and was a man of great courage. He 
marched in Lieut. J. Hickock's Co., and Col. John Ashley's Reg., to 
Kingsbury, and was out twenty-two days, from July 6-July 27, 
1777. In the time of Shays' rebellion, he took sides with the gov- 
ernment against the insurgents. 

By trade a shoemaker, he abandoned that employment for the 
mercantile business, in which he engaged first at Sheffield, and 
afterwards at Hudson, N. Y. He also owned at Great Barrington,- 
Mass., in company with Capt Bacon, a store, which was supposed 
to have been burned by the Shajrs' mm. Rose and Bly, just before 
their execution, confessed that they plundered and burned the 

His residence in Sheffield was at first about a quarter of a mile 
from the village, but after the death of his father, he purchased, in 
the village, the place of Rev. John Keep. He removed about 1791, 
to Hudson, N. Y., and thence, about 1794, to Pownal, Vt, residing 
at the south village in the latter town, on the place where the widow 
of his son James resided, in 1856.

Dr. On>BON Noble, s. of Rev. Oideon, was b. in Willington, 
Conn., Aug. 3, 1763, and d. in Glastonbury, Conn., July, 1807, e. 
43. Early in the Revolutionary war, a company of aoldiers was 
raiaed in Willington, to march to New York. Being deatitute of 
a fifer, they penmaded Rev. Mr. Noble to allow his son Oideon, 
then thirteen years of age, to accompany them in that capacity. 
He was at that early age, a good musician, and many a time did 
the soldiers, with whom he was a universal favorite, carry him on 
their phoulders over difficult places, while he played *' march away.* 
He was considered the mere child of the army. He however 
took cold, while on his way home, after having been inoculated 
for ih^ smallpox, and had a long and distressing illness, for aid 
in defraying the expenses of which, his father presented the fol- 
lowing petition to the General Assembly of Connecticut: 

"To the Honourable, the general Assembly of the State of Connecticut, 
bolden at Hartford, the 10*^ of Jan. 1782. The memorial of Gideon 
Noble of Willington Clerk humbly sheweth, that your Memorialist's Son, 
Gideon Noble yet continuing a Minor, enlisted into the continental Ser- 
vice, during the war, in the Spring of 1777, in Capt Jonathan Parker's 
Company, Col. Charles Webb's Reg*- &> soon after was inoculated by 
Order at Pomfret, on his return Home supposed to take Cold, was 
affected with a Disorder in bis Knee & thigh which was soon attended 
with Tumifaction, Inflamation &, extreme Pain; whereby he was con- 
fined to Bed for mote than two months, the far greater Part of the Time; 
4k required constant attendance both Day ft Night The Case was so 
eztiaordinary that his Physician, Doct. Cobb, desired 4k bad Council. 
As he was, ft still is, the pnblicks servant, your Memorialist humbly thinks 
it reasonable that the necessary Expence of his Sickness, should be allow'd 
by some publick Bord: Doct Cobb charged his Bill directly to your 
Memorialist, upon my Desire drew it of, which with one for y* Memo^ 
rialist's Expence for Tendence, ft other necessaries, your Memorialist's sent 
divers Times to the Hospital Directors at Danbury, but the proper person 
to lay it before, could not be found there, ft neither of them have been 
allowd by any publick Board, or pay Table to this Day; and your Memo- 

Digitized by 



rialiit is call'd upon by the Heirs of Doct. Cobb, who was his principal 
Physician, for the pay which is £0 8* 0, charged agreeable to the then 
regulating Price: yo^ Memorialist is likewise accountable to Doct. Rose, 
who was the Council Doct. Cobb desired, for four Journeys of ten Miles 
each all which with my own Bill for necessary attendance &c, which 
upon the Price of articles at ye Time, is £14 18 0, make a large sum 
for y Memorialist to pay & which it is impossible for him to pay with- 
out deducting so much out of the necessary £zpe[nce] of his Family which 

is [narrow] & small ft already reduced to great [stra]its. Tour 

Memorialist therefore Prays your Honours to take his unhappy Case under 
your wiflc Consideration, & enable the pay Table to adjust the accounts 
A give Orders for such 8um as shall be found due, & reasonable, or in 
some other way grant Relief asy' honour shall think Just& equitable; 
as yr. memorialist in duty bound shall ever Pray. 


Dated at Willington Jan. 10. 1783." 

Upon the above petition the Gen' Assembly " Resolved by thin Assem- 
bly that the foregoing Memorial he granted, and that the Committee of 
Pay Table lie authorized and direct cd. and they arc hereby authoriz(Hl & 
directed, to draw an Onlcr in favour of the Memorialist upon the Trea!»- 
urer of this State for the sum of eleven Pounds, thirteen shillings and 
sixpence payable out of the Tax of two shilling and sixpence, Exclusive 
of such Part of ad. Tax as is Payable in this States money & charge y*

d. in Detroit, Mich., abt. 1853, ». abt. 85. W. E. Lauderdale of 
Oeneseo, N. Y., writes, under date of July 31. 1856: « Russell 
Noble was known at an early period, in this country. He was a 
fiddler by profession, and was always seen at parties, balls, &c., 
with his fiddle encased in an old green bag. One peculiarity is 
mentioned, he was left-handed, and held the bow in his left hand." 
O. Turner, on page 468 of ''Pioneer History of the Holland Pur- 
chase of Western New York," published in 1849, notices him as 

" And here 'in the reminiscences of this primitiye period, occurs the 
name of one who, if he did not follow as useful an employment as the 
keeping of a house of public entertainment, made himself as well known. 
Russell Noble! At the bare mention of his name,* there are surriring 
pioneers, who will be reminded of their younger days and their enjoy- 
ments, and if there is ' music in their souls '—as there was wont to be with 
most of them— they will almost fancy they hear the notes of his old Tiolin ! 
A fiddler was no obscure person in those early days; and Noble had no com- 
petitor—for he was the pioneer fiddler; he and his old Tiolin mark the 
advent of music on the Holland Purchase. Compared with his, ' Italian 
trills were tame.' In those primitive times, in sleigh, or ox-sled rides, at 
recreations that followed log-house raisings, logging-bees, road-cuttings, 
at Christmas and New Years' frolics; far and wide in the early sparse set- 
tlements. Noble and his fiddle formed an accustomed and necessary part. 
It was to be hoped that his reputation as a fiddler would have remained 
unquestioned; but recently a facetious gatherer-up of reminiscences has 
ventured to dur it, by intimating that he used to have no more regard for 
time than he had for etemiiif. The old fiddler still lives, and it was only 
last winter that he was an occasiona] guest at the houses of surviving 
pioneers— stripping the same old green bag from the same old fiddle, and 
reminding his anditorB of early days." 

He removed from Oeneseo to Batavia, N. Y.

N. H., Feb. 12, 1777, and d. in Tinmouth, Vt, March 6, 1864, ». 
87. He resided in Tinmouth, Vt. ** You are right,** says Judge 
Noble, in a letter dated March 22, 1852, **in supposing me a self- 
made man. What little there is of me, was so made. I never had 
any education, but what I obtained at a common district school, 
such as we had seventy years ago. I worked on a farm, until I 
was twenty-three years old. I then went into the office of Smith 
& Prentice of Rutland, Vt.| read law there a part of three years, 
and after being admitted to the bar as an attorney, returned to 
Tinmouth, and commenced practice." 

He whs register of probate, in 1 799, admitted to the bar in April, 
1803; chosen representative to the General Court, 1811-12, 1815-16, 
1820, and 1830; State senator, 1838 and 1839; member of the 
council of censors, 1827; member of the constitutional convention, 
1828, and 1836; justice of the peace, 1807-1848; judge of probate, 
1813-1830; judge of the county court, 1839-1842. << These sev- 
eral appointments," writes Judge Noble, in 1852, << called me thir- 
teen times to our seat of government, a distance of seventy miles. 
I live ten miles from where our courts are held, and when I held 
my Probate court once in each month, and oftener by special 
appointment, I have ever been phyeicaUy able to perform and did 
perform every duty incumbent upon me by these several appoint- 
ments. I have never been confined to the house a day in my life 
by sickness or lameness." 

The EuUand Herald of March 8, 1864, contains the following 
notice of Judge Nobles death, and estimate of his character: 

"Hon. Obadiah Noble of Tinmouth died suddenly on Sunday morning 
last, at the age of 87 yeazs. Not coming to his breakfast as usual on that 
morning, his chamber was entered, and he was found dead upon the floor, 
partially dressed. 

" Judge Noble was a man of eminent good sense and practical judgment, 
of retentive memoty, of genial and kindly feelings, and spotless character. 
He pofii»e8scd a rich fund of anecdote and information regarding events 
which transpired in the time of his youth and vigorous manhood, which 
will make his loss all the more seriously felt by those interested in the
