My family, the Noah's, settled in Marysville, Iowa during pre-Civil war days. In the early 1800's, Serring Noah married Jane Bogartus from Holland or France. They had a son named Sern, he married a woman named Ferguson and they had five children. The children were Bill Noah, John Noah, May Noah Barnes(settled in Lovilia, Iowa), Jane Noah Hughes (who had a son named Montgomery), and my great grandfather, Jonah Noah (born between 1858 and 1865). Jonah Noah changed his name to Jonah Noe in 1885 when he married Teressa Isabella Dennison. They had ten children: Earl, Pearl, Goldie, Leo, Babbins, Joseph, John Lawrence, David Albert (my grandfather), Harry James, and Jay William. Earl, Babbins, and Joseph died as children. They later moved to Korty, Nebraska, Oelrichs, SD, and Bassett,NE in 1905. They also helped establish the post office at Rose, NE and Longpine, NE.
