    John Noble, a pioneer of Jefferson County of 1845, was born in Blair County [this portion of Blair Co. later was made into Huntingdon Co.], Pa., on the 17th of February, 1796, on a farm, which had come into the possession of the family prior to the Revolutionary War. He was married in native State in about the year 1818, to Miss Elizabeth Crane, a native of Pleasant Valley, Blair County, Pa., born in 1797. Mr. Noble was a farmer, and was engaged in that vocation in Pennsylvania until 1845, when he emigrated with his family to the Territory of Iowa, and settled in Fairfield, continuing his residence in Jefferson County, until his death. By his union with Miss Crane, a large family of children was born, consisting of nine sons and one daughter, all the sons are living except one who was accidentally killed, the eldest being seventy years of age, the youngest fifty.

    Samuel, the eldest, was twice married. He lost his first wife in Pennsylvania, after which he came to Iowa in 1846, married a Miss Shipler, and now resides in Albia; Abraham C., aged sixty-nine years, has been twice married, and is living in Fairfield Township; Martha B. Madden was the name of his second wife; John S., who is sixty-six years of age, and resides in Arkansas, married for his first wife Eliza J. Beck, and after her death wedded Mary Nordick; Christian E. who is sixty-five years of age, is represented elsewhere in this family history; William W. married Emma Hendrick, and was accidentally killed in a mine in 1860, at the age of thirty-four years; Benjamin F., a twin brother of William, married Miss Dunn, and lives in Montgomery County, Iowa, at the age of sixty-four; George W., aged sixty-two, resides in Arkansas; David A., aged sixty, married Miss Arnold, and makes his home in Albia, Iowa; Margaret J., aged fifty-seven, widow of Jacob Ash, is living in Dallas, Ill.; Edward M., aged fifty, is married and lives in Albia. The tallest of the nine brothers was six feet, and the shortest five feet and ten inches; the heaviest weighed two hundred and thirty pounds, and the lightest one hundred and sixty.

    Originally, they were all Whigs, and later all Republicans. Six brothers and a sister came to Jefferson County, in 1845 with their parents; C. E. and John S. arrived the following year, and Abraham C. came in 1863. Mr. Noble was a Whig in early life, and like his sons, advocated Republican principles on the organization of the party. He was an industrious and worthy man, and his death, which occurred on the 17th of February, 1871, at the age of seventy-five, was deeply regretted by many friends. His good wife survived him only a few months, dying August 30, 1871. Both were members of the Lutheran Church.

    The Fairfield Ledger, March 30, 1871, page (not readable)

    ...Father...of this country. He ... Huntingdon County, Pa., the place of his nativity, to Iowa about 25 years ago. In the year 1819 he was united in the bonds of matrimony to Elizabeth Crane, who still lives to mourn his loss. He has nine children living, eight sons and one daughter, the youngest of whom is now about thirty-three years of age. All the sons were permitted to follow his body to its final resting place. Early in life he united with the Lutheran congregation in this city on the 25th of December 1856, and he did much toward its permanent establishment...

    At the time of the 1850 census, John was a laborer in Lee County, Iowa. At the time of the 1860 census, he was a farmer in Buchanan (Post Office Fairfield), Jefferson County, Iowa. He had real estate valued at $3000 and personal assets of $700. At the time of the 1870 census, he was a furniture dealer in Fairfield, Jefferson County, Iowa. He had real estate valued at $2000 and personal assets of $1000. A 9 year old girl, Emmie Mathus, born in Pennsylvania, was listed in his household.

    If you study my sources, you will see that I haven't done much research before the 1850 census. I have some material based on Bible entries, DAR applications, local history books, and wills for earlier periods but need to do a lot more work on the lines further out. Please contact me with updates and corrections.
