I am not related and have no further information. This was taken from a old scrapbook belonging to Mrs. Clara (Jones) McCartney. They are glued down and no dates on most of them.

Mrs. Elizabeth Noble, eldest child of Amos and Malinda McLean-Kidner was born near Homer/Licking Co., Ohio, Oct. 19, 1841. At the age of five years she moved with her parents to Indiana and remained there for eight years. the family then moved west--this time locating on a farm near Strawberry Point in 1854.

The trip from Indiana was made in a covered wagon drawn by an ox team. She taught school before the days of Public Schools and later passed an examination before the first Sipt. of Schools in Clayton County.

December 19, 1858, she was married to Lucius L. Noble by Jas. Newberry, J. P., now deceased. Two daughters were born to this union--Mrs. E. B. Porter of Delhi, Iowa, and Mrs. R.E. Friars of Tacoma, Washington. She was preceded in death by her husband, and one grandson, John N. Porter, who died in France during the world war. She is survived by the two daughters, three grandchildren, two sisters, Mrs. Culbertson of Duluth, Minn., and Mrs. Lochhart of Basin, Wyoming; besides numerous nephews and nieces.

After the death of her husband, Miss Hazel Kidner (now Mrs. Carl Fultz) made her home with and cared for her until a few months ago, when she came to the home of her daughter, where every care was given her and everything possible done for her comfort, happiness and welfare. Her death occured from this home Saturday, June 21, about 9 o'clock in the evening, at the age of 88 years, 8 months and 2 days.

She was a member of the Methodist church and a regular attendtant at the services until declining health prevented. Since 1854 she continuously resided in and near Strawberry Point and was truly one of Iowa's pioneers.

We are too stupid about death. We will not learn
How it is wages paid to those who earn,
How it is the gift for which on earth we yearn.
