Henry H. Noah Former Baxter Businessman Dies after Suffering Very Severely

The community has suffered a distinct loss in the death of Mr. Noah. He was a man of sterling qualities, fearless in pursuit of what he deemed was right, honest in business, a leader in church affairs and a father who looked after and provided for his family in a most open handed and generous manner. He was highly esteemed by his fellow sotck holders in the Baxter Telephone Company and the State Savings Bank. Following is a brief history of his life.

Henry Herman Noah was born Kalldorf, Germany, February 20, 1847. At the age of nineteen he came to America and located at Franklin, Sheboygan County, Wisconsin. On the 22nd day of May 1870,, he was united in marriage with Friederika Schnuelle at Franklin, Wisconsin. To this union were born ten girls and three boys, the mother, three girls and one boy, preceding him to the Great Beyond. The children surviving are Clara and John, of Portland, Oregon; Calvin, Baxter; Mrs. F. Cholett, Mitchelville, Ia.; Mrs. Don Raridon, of near Newton; Selma, Rosa, Alvine , and Meta at home. Besides the children he leaves three brothers and one sister of Greenwood, Wisconsin, and five grandchildren to mourn their loss. He came to Jasper County, Iowa, in 1876, and followed the carpenter trade for several years and then settled on a farm four miles southeast of Baxter, and there they made their home until 1902. They then moved to Baxter, Iowa, where he was one of the proprietors of the Baxter Roller Mills for about eleven years, after which he retired.

After four weeks illness he was called Home on October 6, 1916, at 10:30 P.M. at the age of 69 years, 7 months and 16 days.

A short service was held at the house Monday at 1:00 P.M., Rev. Paul Traeger officiating minister. The body was laid at rest in the German Reformed cemetery after which the funeral service was held at the German Reformed Church which he was a member.
