Noah, Simon Henry #2 (10 OCT 1866 - 23 MAY 1943)

Simon Henry Noah, 78, was born near Berlin, Germany, on Oct. 10, 1866, and came to Sheboygan with his parents when a small child. A few years later his parents moved to a farm west of Greenwood, where he grew to manhood, and on June 19, 1896, he was married to Mathilda Pagenkopf at Neillsville.

They lived near Greenwood for a number of years, coming to Loyal 33 years ago. Twenty-seven years ago they bought their present home. Mr. Noah was a railroad worker for many years.

Mr. Noah died at his home in the village at 7:30 a.m. Sunday, May 23, of a heart ailment. Although he had been in poor health for over a year he had been confined to his bed for only a week immediately previous to his death.

He is survived by his wife and two daughters, Mrs. Howard (Lena) Corey of Greenwood and Mrs. Everett (Martha) Nelson of Venice, Cal., and seven sons, Edwin of Janesville, Arthur of Willard, Herman of Loyal, George and Rudolph of Milwaukee, William of Oshkosh and Alvin of Minneapolis. One son, Hugo, died in 1920. A brother, August Noah of Greenwood, also survives, and there are 21 grandchildren.
