Levi R. Noble, eldest son of Jonathan and Martha Noble, was born in Albany, Geneosse Co., N.Y., Dec. 27, 1830. In early childhood he moved first with his parents to Michigan and thence to Yankee Settlement, now Edgewood, in 1846. After looking about for a location the father settled on the land known as the Frank Noble farm and there established his pioneer home. The house was of logs, the comforts were few and the luxuries were none. The nearest post-office was Dubuque. The boys, Levi, Lucious and Frank worked with their father. Levi was married March 9, 1854 to Lucinda A. Haskell. To them three children were born, Clarence, Leonard and Elmina. The boys died in 1868. From this blow the family barely recovered, the wife having been an invalid since that time. Mr. Noble's whole thought and care was for the welfare of his wife and remaining daughter. For these he amply provided and goes to his rest at the close of a long and busy life with his work well done. He died at his home in Strawberry Point, May 2nd, 1914, mourned by his immediate family, two brothers, nephews and nieces, neighbors and friends. The funeral was held from the house, conducted by Rev. C.H. True, a friend of the family for more than 60 years. Interment in Edgewood cemetery.
