“In 1732 Katherine Higley Noble removed with her son David and his family to Hebron, Conn., where “they settled in that part now called Gilead. The homestead was about three and a half miles northwest of the Hebron church, and one mile west of the Gilead meeting-house, on the highway leading to Marlborough.” ‘ Here Katherine united with the church, no doubt under the preaching of Whitefield, after she had reached her sixty-first birthday.” ~ From the above mentioned online book.

Biographical Notes: David Noble was a soldier in the American Revolution.
This may be our David – “Among those from Westfield were David Noble, who organized and led the company of minute-men which marched from Pittsfield on the news of Lexington fight;” 

“Nor let it be forgotten that near or in it rallied the minute-men on Lexington alarm; the soldiers who followed David Noble to the armies of Washington, and died in the pestilence at Lake Champlain;”

“Among the other prominent men who early committed themselves to the party of liberty were Oliver Root, William Francis, Deacon Josiah Wright, David Noble, and John Strong. Our information concerning these patriots -except Col. Root, whose early life has already been sketched -is slight. William Francis was a native of Wethersfield, and was among the first settlers of Poontoosuck. Not only before the Revolution, but for many years afterwards, he was held by his townsmen in extraordinary esteem for his discretion and integrity. “Governor Francis,” the soubriquet by which he was known in his later years, is still remembered with reverential respect by persons now living. Of somewhat similar character was Deacon Wright, afterwards one of the earliest Methodists in Pittsfield. He had served as a sergeant in the French and Indian Wars. David Noble – than whom no Pittsfield patriot has left a brighter record – was a native of Westfield, from which town he was a volunteer in 1755. He was a farmer, trader, and tavern-keeper, living in the eastern part of the town, and had accumulated considerable property, most of which he sacrificed for his country.”

“But on the 1st of September, Gov. Gage having sent out a detachment to remove to Boston the Provincial military stores deposited at Charlestown, a report arose during the excitement which ensued, that the British were firing upon the former town. The alarm- which is supposed to have been a feint of the patriot leaders to try the spirit of the people – spread with marvellous rapidity; and it was estimated that forty thousand armed men were the next morning on their march to defend or avenge their brethren. The alarm, having served its purpose, was checked, and the militia returned to their homes. In this affair a company of minute-men, commanded by Capt. David Noble and Lieut. James Easton, went from Pittsfield to Westfield; and the town voted to each private and non-commissioned officer two pounds ” for himself and horse.” The captain and lieutenant received six pounds apiece for their services, but were refused extra compensation for continuing their trip to Boston.”

One Response to Marie E. Noble (1835-1891)

  1. Marlin Jeffers says:

    Need information on the death of Cyrus Gates Noble and his burial. Last time followed was 1880 Kansas census, Lincoln County, Valley Twp. with 2nd wife, Elizabeth. She died in Illinois 1n 1889 and is buried in Evergreen Cemetery, Morris, Ill. No sign of Cyrus in Ks. or Ill. He was 77yr. old in Lincoln. He and Elizabeth were living with her daughter, Christina(Albert Wiebert) in Valley Twp.. The Wiebert also returned to Illinois, where they died. My grandfather had in his family notes that Cyrus died in 1889 but no notes on where or exactly when.
