Obit: Noble, William (1844 - 1890)





----Source: Neillsville Republican Press 1/1/1891




William Noble departed this life at his home in the Town of Loyal, Clark County, Wis., Dec. 24th, 1890.

He was born in Ontario, Canada, In Aug. 1844. In 1871 he was married to Miss Maggie McIntyre, and in May 1885, he moved to Clark County, Wis., with his wife and three children. Here in his new home his worth as a citizen was soon recognized, and his value as a friend soon understood. He was a good farmer, and a man of good business talent. As school clerk for six years, and as town treasurer for three years, he won and retained the confidence of all. Deeply seated were his moral principles and his religious convictions. A Presbyterian by birth and training, he never allowed the strong currents of western life to swerve him from the path of duty and right. It was to him that a pastor looked for just such counsel and assistance as every pastor in a new country must have. Indeed he was coming to be such a pillar in the church as any lonely minister might be proud of. His devotion to his family is worthy of special note as all can testify.

The funeral was attended from the M. E. Church of Loyal on Friday last at which more than three hundred people showed the most deep and tender interest in the proceedings. Rev. Allen Bell, pastor of the first Presbyterian Church of Beaver Dam, Wis., a very dear friend of Mr. Noble's came to lend his counsel, his payers and his tears on this sad occasion, while his pastor, Rev. W. T. Hendren of Neillsville, was also assisted in the solemn services by Pastor Connor of the M. E. Church of Loyal. Rev. Jefferson of Greenwood was also present and Rev. Jos. Brown of Marshfield sent a letter of sympathy for the deeply afflicted family. Belle, John and Daniel remain to comfort a mother's heart, and to be her stay in declining years. Truly God's ways are above our ways.
