Very challenging, indeed! Appears his name was briefly "Anglicized" to "Ben"? That only adds to the confusion 'cause there was another Ben Noack. For certain he had a brother, Johannes E. Noack, that wed Martinne L. Poldrack 30 Nov 1890 in Williamson. They are together, surname misidentified as "Hoock", in 1900 Williamson-Precinct 6-District 132-Image 13. There might be inconsistencies regarding birth locales? The older brother enumerated as born in Germany Jun 1866 and immigration 1882. Adolph aka Ben supposedly born in Texas Dec 1878 and the birthdate supported by WWI Draft Card in Donley County. No trace of Adolph found after 1910 Williamson-Precinct 6-District 130-Image 25 when he was, again, enumerated as Ben. Attempted to trace J. E. in hopes their paths would intersect again. No success!

There is an attached declaration which does not fit the person. The subject, John, was age 53 on 30 Jul 1889 when the document was signed. The arrival date, 16 Dec 1854, was 12 years before J. E. Noack's birth. If births for J. E. and Adolph are accurate, perhaps their parents left J. E. in Germany? They immigrated then gave birth to Adolph? J. E. immigrated three years after Adolph's birth? I'm not related or acquainted.
