Biography of William Noble
Orleans County, NY Biographies





Noble, William, was a native of Weathersfleld, Conn., born May 9, 1803, and was the son of Elnathan and Mary Noble. The family left Connecticut about 1805, and settled at Geneva. William Noble was educated at Albany and New York city, at the latter in the College of Physicians and Surgeons, and completed his medical education at Castleton, Vt. He studied medicine in New York city under the direction of Dr. Valentine Mott and other well known and equally distinguished physicians. He began practicing in Albany, and thence moved to Hudson, Ohio, from the latter place coming to Albion, in 1840. From this time until his death, Dr. Noble was in continuous practice in Orleans county, and was a physician of much prominence among the local practitioners, while as a surgeon was perhaps unequaled in the country. Dr. Noble died in Albion, April 18, 1878. His wife, whom he married at Albany. June 2, 1829, was Amelia Stiles Denio. The children of this marriage were as follows: William Gray Noble, born May 29, 1832, died February 21, 1835; Mary Weston Noble, born December 11, 1883, married Dr. Edward West, New York city, and died June 13, 1891; Harriet Stiles, born September 15, 1835, married Henry B. Watson, January 30, 1895; Francis Amelia, born February 17, 1839, married Dr. William H. Graves, the latter being a practicing physician in Albion for a short time, and who died in November, 1866; Ella N., born June 8, 1842, died in 1845; Annette Lucile, born July 12, 1844. Annette Lucile Noble was educated at Phipps Union Seminary, and was graduated from that institution. She began her well known literary career in writing for such publications as the Christian Union and the New York Independent, and later for Harper's Bazaar, Frank Leslie's periodicals and New York Graphic. She wrote children's stories as early as 1870, and did other work as well. She was also employed in writing for the Presbyterian and Temperance boards. About 1880 she began writing novels, and her works have attracted much attention both at home and abroad. "Uncle Jack's Executor" has a large sale both in the United States and England; "Eunice Lathrop" is another of her best works. Some of her writings were so well received that they were translated into Dutch and had a large sale in Holland. Miss Noble has been an extensive foreign traveler, having made seven long tours in Europe at different times, visiting many different countries.
