The Adolph & Louise (Hoehle) Noah Family



Adolph Noah was born in Dalle, Lippe Detmold, Germany, on Aug. 10, 1858, and was the son of Ludwig and Chartlotte (Straate) Noah.  In the year 1869 he came with his parents to America and they made their home the first four years in the Town of Hermann, Sheboygan County, WI, where he was confirmed in the German Evangelical & Reformed faith.

In the 1873 the Noah family moved to Clark County, WI and settled on a farm in the Town of Warner in what later became a part of Mead after it was divided).  Ludwig & Charlotte built the log cabin pictured above. Pictured below is the original structure beside the "new" frame house.


This farm was later owned by his son Adolph, who passed it on to his son, Emil, whose son Elmer eventually farmed it too.  In 2004, the Braun/Noah family reunion was held there and Elmer's son was preparing to take it over.  One of the grandchildren said that after a modern frame home was built, two old pump organs were stored in this first one.  It was "off limits", but too much of a curiosity for young investigators who had great fun sneaking in to play them.  It took two to produce the music because the peddles couldn't be reached while sitting on the bench.  So, one pumped while the other stroked the keys.


On Jan. 11, 1874, the day the West Side Church was organized, Adolph became a member of it, being active therein for over 60 years. He served this church as a deacon for six years and as elder for two years.

In the year 1885 he was united in marriage to Minna Karoline Dohmeier, the daughter of Simon & Maria Dohmeier. This union was blessed with two children, Calvin Adolph and Clara Louise. Minna passed away April 29, 1889 and was laid to rest in the church cemetery.


Sept 25, 1890, Mr. Noah married a second time to Louise Hoehle and they became the parents of  seven children.


Adolph was an active community member who held varying offices, including Clerk, Chairman and Treasurer of the township.  He also served as Treasurer of the school.  He died Oct. 9, 1935 at the age of seventy-seven and Louise passed away Oct. 15, 1952.  Both of them were buried in the Immanuel Church Cemetery.
