Andreas Noe and Carolina Harth

The children of Andreas Noe and Carolina Harth

If all these records are accurate, my great grandfather, Ludwig (Lou) Noe, was just barely born in wedlock five days after the marriage of his parents on June 28, 1859. He married Eve Fickeisen, daughter of Abraham and Margaret Müller Fickeisen, on Nov. 21, 1882 at the age of 23. His story will be told along with Eva's in the Fickeisen genealogy. Lou Noe died in 1904. We also have the 1860 Census data given below.

Carolina married Adam on Dec. 28, 1882. Note that her brother, Ludwig Noe, married Adam's sister, Eve, just a month earlier. We read in Carolina's obituary that she "died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Philip Moellendick, at Washington Bottom, W.Va. [on March 25, 1941]. . . She was born near Whipple and spent her early life there. She had lived in Wood County, W.Va. for many years." Other interesting information is contained in the obituary.

Mrs. Philip Moellendick was born Ida Marie Fickeisen on Oct. 5, 1883 in Fearing Twp. She was baptised on Dec. 26, 1883 and the witnesses were Johann Fickesen, Elisabetha Noe, Heinrich Noe and Luisa Fickeisen. According to my mother, three children came from this relationship, Odas, Harold, and Louise. See the account of Eva Fickeisen Noe for my mother's tales of Carolina "Dammie" Noe.

He married Anna May Schultheiss on March 2, 1904 and they resided in Cambridge. We learn from sister Carolina's obituary that "Andrew" was still living in Cambridge, Ohio at the time of her death.

Christian Noe was born Aug. 22 1874 and baptized Nov. 22, 1874  Witnessess were Jacob Berg, Louis Becker, Daniel Biehl, Jacob Born, Christian Becker, Elisabetha Schultheiss, Katharina Epler, Philippina Stephan, Karolina Noe, and Karolina Harth. He married Anna Loella Trappe on Oct. 24, 1912. She was born in Lowell, Ohio on May 17, 1885 to John and Mary Schob Trappe. Christian was tragically killed in a streetcar accident at the age of 39 on Tuesday, July 21, 1914. He was living in Beverly, Ohio with his wife at the time of his death. The accident was the subject of headlines and long stories in the Marietta Times for the rest of that week. The headlines screamed: "Just Like Brother" Says Dispatcher of Motorman his Confused Orders Sent to Death in Awful Wreck." You can read the details in this sequence of excerpts: 1) sobs with grief, 2) too late to stop, 3) injured doing well. Christian and Anna are both buried in the Greenlawn Cemetery in Lowell, Ohio.

Jacob A. Noe was born Jan. 2, 1877, and baptised by Rev. Mueller on Feb. 17, 1877. Witnesses were Jacob Noe and Margaretha Schultheisz. He married Nora Caroline Barth on Oct. 2, 1902. Nora was the daughter of Charles and Caroline Becker Barth.They had 2 sons: Lawrence born ca 1904 and Arthur was born in January, 1918. Jacob Noe died Jan. 3, 1953 and was buried on Jan. 6, 1953 in Valley Cemetery. From Jacob's obituary, we learn that Lawrence had two children, Sharon and Larry, and Arthur settled in Tuscon and had three children, David, Diane and Marianne.

Catherine Sams has also unearthed a bit of the history of Jacob and Nora's social life in 1913. In addition to finding out that they visited Ed Barth and family, this is a glimpse into the social life of Washington Co. on June 2, 1913.

John E. Noe was born on March 1, 1881 in Whipple, Ohio. He married Bertha E. Marsch age 18 on Feb. 1, 1906. (Bertha was also born in Washington Co. Ohio on Jan. 25, 1888, and was the daughter of Charles William & Margaret Young Marsch. John and Bertha had a son, Lester Eugene Noe. John's obituary states that he died Nov. 29, 1970 at Newport and was buried Dec. 1, 1970 in East Lawn Cemetery. Bertha died on Saturday, Oct. 21, 1944, according to her obituary. My mother told me it was the news that her son was going to be shipped into active duty on the German front during WW II that caused her death.

I was 32 years old when John died and can remember meeting and talking with him on many occasions in my life. He was my grandmother Clara's uncle, and since she lived with us after 1953, he was an important living relative of mine. Also, John's son, Lester, married my ninth grade English teacher, Virginia Myers Noe. Lester submitted an extensive article on the life of he and his wife to Washington County Ohio to 1980: a collection of topical & family sketches. Here it is in section 1 and section 2.
