Obituary: Home Advisor, Vienna MO 12 Apr 1917


Mrs. Rebecca Noblet who died in her home 6:30 p.m. April 1st was born in Arlington, Kentucky, about 88 years ago. When she was a girl her parents (Mr and Mrs J.C.Young) moved to Indiana for a short time and then came to Missouri, USA, into this section which was then part of Osage County

When about 25 years of age Miss Rebecca Young was married to Mr. Ira Mandevill Noblet. They lived on the Burbois for some years, then moved to California for a 10-year stay. The trip was made with a number of others using perhaps 20 wagons. About the close of the war the Noblets returned to this section.

In April 1874 Mr. Noblet died. Mrs. Noblet survived her husband with five children: Elizabeth Anna (Mrs. John Smallwood), Thos. Jefferson Noblet, Ira Francis, (born Nov 7, 1862 and died July 25th 1874); James Henry, (born Jan 7th 1867 and died August 29th 1867); William Ledford Noblet. The three now surviving their mother are living in this community and are well known.

Mrs. Noblet with her husband were foresighted enough to buy and hold a parcel of land sufficient to make a permanent home. Deceased at her death was the owner of about 132 acres part of which is very fertile.

Mrs. Noblet was well known and her direct personal experiences and observations in pioneer times frequently afforded highly interesting coversation.

Mrs. Noblet was buried Tuesady April 3rd, after obsequial services in the M.E. Church, in the Public cemetery of this place and a goodly number of friends witnessed the occasion.
