2.  Reuben Haynes2 Noah (John Mathew1) was born Jan 09, 1792 in Philadelphia, Chester Co, Pennsylvania, and died Jun 02, 1860 in Gallatin, Daviess Co, Missouri. He married Sarah A. Austin Jan 17, 1819 in Nelson, Portage Co, Ohio. She was born Sep 14, 1796 in Bath, Maine, and died Dec 08, 1872 in Gallatin, Daviess Co, Missouri.

Notes for Reuben Haynes Noah:
Noah Times (I:1), (II:1), and (III:1): Rueben and Margaret were both named in the will of Catherine Haines Hartshorne's will. The will was filled on Oct 21, 1806, and proved on April 19, 1809 in Pennsylvania.

Noah Times (II:1) and (III:1): On November 22, 1819, Rueben purchased 60 acres of land in Nelson, Portage Co, OH from his father, John M. Noah. He sold it in 1849. Rueben's middle name may have been "Haines" instead of "Haynes".

Noah Times (III:1): Moved with his family to Nelson, Portage Co, OH in 1804. He remained in Ohio until the early 1840's. Rueben and his brother George went to Sheridan Township, Daviess County, MO, just before 1840, then returned to Ohio to get their families. Rueben and Sarah had 4 children. There may have been more.

Noah Times (V:4): Baptismal records show Rueben's parents as Johann Mathias Noack and frau Elisabeth.

"Life History of Charles Hulet": 1820 census-Rueben and wife in Nelson Twp, Portage Co, OH. Reuben owned 60 acres of land in Nelson Twp in 1826. This was land he had bought from his father in Nov 1819. 1830 census-Rueben, wife, and 2 children in Nelson Twp. Just before 1840, Reuben and his brother George bought land in Daviess Co, MO. In about 1840, Reuben took his family to Daviess Co. 1840 census-Reuben (farmer) and Sarah, and children Lucian, Jacob, and Leona in Daviess Co. In 1849, he sold the Portage Co. property. A deed was recorded in Jan 1841 for 120 acres and another Apr 1848 for 240 acres in Sheridan Twp, Daviess Co.

Larkin: From "The Noah Family Autobiography" by Minerva Noah Cole: Three of Reuben and Sarah's children died young. All three are buried in Nelson, Portage Co, OH. "In the spring of 1845, my father sold his farm of 60 acres. On the 2nd of May we started for Missouri via: Canal from Newton Falls (10 miles from our home) to Beaver, thence by steamboat down the Ohio River and up the Mississippi and Missouri to Camden on the Missouri River, then by ox team (distance of 60 miles from river) to our new home, on Dog Creek, 5 miles southwest to Gallatin (the county seat) Daviess County, Missouri on the 2nd of June, 1845." Minerva says the country was new and neighbors not close, and that there was considerable sickness, cheifly fever and ague and typhoid fever. (my NOTE: census records show they were in Daviess Co in 1840.) Minerva tells about Reuben and his wife going back to Ohio in 1849. His father John had already died, and while there, Reuben's mother died. Later, Minerva tells that Reuben died on the 2nd of June at 8:00 AM, "having lived just 15 years to a day and hour after moving on to his place."

Larkin: From "The Noah Family Autobiography" by Minerva Noah Cole: Sarah came from a large, poor family. The children had to work out of the home for a living as the grew older. Sarah heard "of the good wages for hired help in the "West". She got in with a nice Christian family that was moving to Ohio in 1815, by the name of Marcus Morris." In Warrne, Trumble Co, OH, she lived 1 year with the family of Elder Adamson Bentley, pastor of the Baptist church. She then went to Nelson, Portage Co, OH, where the Morris' were.

3.  Margaret Haynes2 Noah (John Mathew1) was born Apr 19, 1794 in Chester Co, Pennsylvania, and died May 15, 1851 in Springville, Utah Co, Utah. She married Charles Hulet Oct 10, 1816 in ?Nelson Twp, Portage Co, Ohio, son of Sylvanus Hulet and Mary Lewis. He was born Mar 03, 1790 in Lee, Berkshire Co, Massachusetts, and died May 09, 1863 in Springville, Utah Co, Utah.

Notes for Margaret Haynes Noah:
Noah Times (II:1) and 6(III:2): Margaret's middle name may have been "Haines" instead of "Haynes".

Noah Times (I:1), (II:1), and (III:1): Rueben and Margaret were both named in the will of Catherine Haines Hartshorne's will. The will was filled on Oct 21, 1806, and proved on April 19, 1809 in Pennsylvania.

Noah Times (II:3): Margaret and Charles had a home in Springville, UT that was built in the 1850's.

Noah Times (III:2): Charles and Margaret joined the Morman church in Nelson, Feb 1831. They were baptized by Joseph Smith (founder of the Mormon church). Before 1832, they moved to Independence, Jackson, MO, then to Far West, Caldwell Co, MO. Apparently they were also in Clay Co, MO in 1835 as they had a daughter there. They were harassed in Ohio, Missouri, and Illinois due to their religion.
Joseph Smith was in Hiram Township (close to Nelson Township), Portage Co, OH, in 1831. He was tarred and feathered by the locals who thought he was baptizing people so that he could get their lands. (my NOTE: this is the Joseph Smith, founder of the Morman church.)

Noah Times (VI:2): Eldred A. Johnson has written a book about Charles and Margaret Noah Hulet family line. (my NOTE: Eldred is the gggrandson of Margaret. The book is the source "Living History of Charles Hulet")

"Life History of Charles Hulet": Margaret's middle name may have been for Reuben Haines, father of Catharine Harshorne (see Noah Times (I:1), (II:1), and (III:1) above). The Noah family's relationship to Catharine remains a mystery. Margaret and her brother John were the only Noah's to become Mormon. 1820 census-Charles, wife, and 3 children in Nelson Twp, Portage Co, OH. 1830 census-Charles, wife, and 4 children in Nelson Twp. 1840 census-Charles, wife, and 10 children or young adults in Hancock Co, IL. 1850 census-Charles, Margaret, and adult children Orin, Ann, Catherine in Springville, Utah Co, UT. Margaret was a very good practical nurse, earning the name "Nurse Hulet". While caring for the children of a family next door, she contracted diphtheria. This quote from a letter in 1953 says she died in April 1857. Margaret was the first person buried in the Springville Cemetary.

Larkin: From "The Noah Family Autobiography" by Minerva Noah Cole: On October 10, 1816, Margeret Haines Noah Married Charles Hulett of Nelson, Portage County Ohio. Some time in the '30's they went off with the Mormons to Nauvoo, IL." Minerva then says the went to Utah when the Mormons were driven out and she "Never heard of them again. Suppose they died in Utah."

Notes for Charles Hulet:
Noah Times (II:3): Charles Hulet paid taxes in Hiram Twp, Portage Co, OH in 1816

"Life History of Charles Hulet", Appendix C: This appendix lists Charles and his wives Anna, Margaret, and Mary, who he had children with, their children, their grandchildren, and their great grandchildren.

"Life History of Charles Hulet": Charles and his cousin Chauncy owned property in MA together, beginning about age 23. They were wheelrights. Charles was also a wagon maker and blacksmith. Charles' father decided to move to Ohio and Charles went with him. Sylvanus had received 160 acres in Nelson Twp, Portage Co, OH, as a Revolutionary War veteran. The Charles and his brother Sylvester sold property in Berkshire Co, MA. in Feb 1814. That is also the same month they bought over 700 acres in Portage Co, OH. It appears they swapped lands with the Couches (Courts). Did Charles marry Anna on their way west to Ohio? They travelled most likely over the Mohawk Trail. It probably took 3 weeks. By 1826, Charles owned 175 acres according to the tax rolls. In 1830, Charles' brother Sylvester heard about Joseph Smith finding a record of an ancient civilization in America. He travelled to New York to talk with Joseph and was baptized in Mar 1830, a few weeks before the Church was organized (Apr 1830). Sylvester brought the Book of Mormons back to his family in Ohio. In Oct 1830, four missionaries came to Geauga Co, OH, and Rev. Sidney Rigdon heard them and accepted their principles. He and 130 of his congregation were baptized into the Mormon church. This is the same time that many of the adult Hulets were baptized into the Morman church. Sidney was often a guest at the Bethesda Church (John Noah's). In Dec 1830, Samuel Smith (Joseph's brother) came to Kirtland, OH. In Feb 1831, Joseph Smith moved first to Kirtland then Hiram Twp, Portage Co, OH (next to Nelson Twp). Hiram Twp became the headquarters for the Church. Other account says Sylvester only went to Kirtland and found out about the Mormon church there. Another account says Joseph Smith himself came to their home for meetings and converted them there. This was before Joseph moved to Hiram Twp. The first church was built in Feb-Mar 1831, but meetings may have been held in the home of Charles Hulet prior to that. Children were baptized in Feb 1831. After the Mar 1832 tar and feathering of Joseph Smith (see John Storey Noah), the Hulets prepared to leave and go to the "Land of Zion"--western Missouri. Charles deeded property to his sister Mary on 1 May 1832. By 13 Jun 1832, Charles and his mother Mary were in Independence Twp, Jackson Co, MO. In western Missouri, members of the church met two kinds of inhabitants..."old settlers" from the southern mountains and outcasts from society. This caused coldness and suspicion and dislike due the vast differences in believes and behaviors. Members of the Church, including the Hulets settled at Whitmer or Prairie Settlement. Almost immediately problems began with house stonings. By the fall of 1832, hay was burned and homes shot into. Charles' fences were taken down. April 1833, 300 "old settlers" met at Independence to plan for the destruction/removal of the Mormons from Jackson Co. No plan was formed, but the persecutions continued. Charles was fired upon in Nov 1833 in the "Battle of the Blue". The Mormons fled Jackson Co. Charles went south into "Van Buren" Co. They remained there until Jun 1834. They returned to Jackson Co., but Charles and his son were taken prisoner. They then fled to Clay Co, to "Zion's Camp". The camp was very unhealthy and many died. The people of Clay Co. became hostile. Joseph Smith was arrested. Charles and Maragaret had a daughter in Clay in 1838, but they left soon after. Finally the "worthless" prairie was given to the Mormons by forming Caldwell and Daviess Counties and many Mormons peaceful made the exodus to there. However, things did not remain peaceful. The MO governer even issued an "exterminating order" in Oct 1838. The "Battle of Crooked River" happened 25 Oct 1838. The Haun's Hill massacre happened 30 Oct 1838. Charles was ordered to sign his deed of trust over, his fences were burned, and a cow was killed. So in the spring of 1839, the Mormons fled to Illinois. Charles filed a claim against the state of MO for $4000 for lost property. They first went to an area around Lima, Adams Co, IL. By spring 1840 census they were in Nauvoo, Hancock Co, IL. In 1842 Charles and his family were recorded in the Nauvoo First Ward with Charles receiving an Elders License, Aug 5th, 1842. Charles owned a small tax lot in Nauvoo. Unfortunately, some of the Missourians came across the river to Nauvoo and captured some of the Mormons. The Mormons retaliated by going to Washington, DC, about it. The Missourians filed false charges against the Church and Joseph Smith. Internally there were problems with the apostates of the Church which eventually led to the murder of Joseph Smith by a mob in Jun 1844. Charles and his brother Sylvester were ordained high priests on 8 Oct 1844 at Nauvoo. Another mob struck in Sep 1845, and the Church decided it was time to move west. Between Dec 1845 and Feb 1846, many family members were endowed and couples sealed at Nauvoo Temple. By Feb 28, 1846, an exodus camp was established in Lee Co, IA. By 1 Mar 1846, the camp had made it to Garden Grove, IA, and on to Mt. Pisgah, IA. People also went on to Council Bluffs and Winter Quarters, IA. Families earned money and prepared to move westward. The Hulets stopped at Mt. Pisgah in 1847. As a way to help the Mormons, the US Army enlisted 500 men for the Mexican War. Charles' brother Sylvester was one of the guard detailed to escort Col John C. Fremont back to Ft. Leavenworth. They discovered the tragic Donner party in the Sierras. During the years in Iowa, there were some splits in the Church, but many went on the the Valley in Utah, including all of Charles' family and Sylvester. The Hulets went in the "Fourth Company" of 1850 which consisted of two groups of 50 wagons each. It took three months in the summer, They arrived in the Great Salt Lake Valley in Sept 1850 after dealing with many deaths due to chlorea. Charles' family was sent to Springville (Hobble Creek) to settle before winter. Charles brought down logs from Hobble Creek canyon for homes. They built a fort as well, completing it before winter. Charles first built a log home and then an adobe home in Springville.

Sheffler: In Oct 1831, the Hulets were baptised by the Mormons. About then, they moved to Independence, Jackson Co, MO. On Oct 31, 1833, mobs drove them north across the Missouri River into Clay Co. In 1836, they moved north into Far West, Caldwell Co, MO. In the early spring of 1839, they moved to Melrose, Lima Twp, IL (about 30 miles south of Nauvoo). In the fall of 1845, mobs drove them into Nauvoo. In 1846, they were driven into Iowa, later coming to Salt Lake Valley. Charles was a farmer.

4.  George Fox2 NOAH (John Mathew1) was born Jan 03, 1796 in Kennet Twp, Chester Co, Pennsylvania, and died Nov 17, 1876 in Daviess Co, Missouri. He married (1) Sarah Ann MERWIN Jan 25, 1827 in Nelson, Portage Co, Ohio, daughter of Jesse MERWIN and Lydia EWERS. She was born Mar 11, 1808 in Ononadaga, New York, and died 1860. He married (2) Lydia Nickerson Jul 07, 1853 in Daviess Co, Missouri. She was born in Ohio, and died.

Notes for George Fox NOAH:
Noah's Ark: George Fox Noah was the third child of eight. When he was about 7, his family moved to Garretsville, OH. George Fox Noah and his brother Rueben Noah moved their families to Daviess County, MO about 1838. George bought land in sec 15, Sheridan Township (5 miles south and 2 miles west of Gallatin, near Kidden, Caldwell Co, MO) George Fox and Sarah had 10 children. George and Lydia did not have any children. There were at least 51 grandchildren. George married Lydia Nickerson after Sarah died. Lydia's marriage to George F. Noah was brief. There is no record of her in the 1860 and 1870 census.
His grave has not been located.

Noah Times (X:3): Information taken from "Wm. Harrison notebook" shows George Fox Noah's birthdate as Jan 3, 1797 (one year later)

"Life History of Charles Hulet": 1830 census-George, wife, and 2 children in Nelson Twp, Portage Co, OH. After George married Sarah, they bought 49 1/2 acres from his father John. George and his brother Reuben bought land in Daviess Co, MO, just before 1840. They sold the land in Ohio. George took his family to Gallatin, Daviess Co. in about 1840. 1840 census-George, wife, and 5 children in Gallatin Twp, Daviess Co, MO. 1850 census-George, Sarah, and children Henry, Jesse, Fredrick, Reuben, Morton, Uri, and Sarah in Daviess Co. It is believed they lived in Sheridan Twp, Daviess Co, until 1852. George may have resided in Kidder, MO. at one time. He also owned a lot in Gallatin and he may have lived there after selling the farm to his son George Nelson. In 1853, he may have taken his family to live in Iowa, but he returned to Daviess Co. by 1860.

(my NOTE: does anyone else wonder if the child Lydia, is actually Lydia Nickerson's with George BEFORE they got married. It seems strange he married a Lydia right after her birth?)

"Life History of Charles Hulet": John became a member of the Mormon church. 1830 census-John, wife, and 3 children in Nelson Twp, Portage Co, OH. On Nov 9, 1831, he and Sylvester Hulet asked a special conference that included Joseph Smith if they could preach the word. The conference voted they be ordained according to the branch to which they lived. It is unknown if the branch agreed. By the end of 1831, John was an Elder of the Mormon church. John and his wife lived in Nelson, Portage Co, but sold that place and bought 3 1/2 acres in Mentor Twp, Geauga Co (Lake Co), OH. In 1837, John was involved in "growing pains" of the new Church. People were claiming elifiction with spirits but according to Joseph Smith they were false or evil spirits. Some believed they were to be the prophet or true revelator. John himself assumed to be a prophet and was expelled from the church. A man from New York walked 600 hundred miles to tell Joseph Smith that it was he who had caused John (Noah) to be cut off from the Church. He too was expelled. These apostates became bitter enemies of the Church. On 24 Mar 1832, the apostates mob tarred and feathered Joseph Smith and Sidney Rigdon. It is unclear if John Noah took part in this. John had 12 children. 1850 census-John, Cynthia, and children Elizabeth, John, Mary, Joseph, Emma, Cynthia, Corel, David, Noah, Victoria, Salutis, and Sabria in Mentor Twp, Lake Co, OH. After their death, Francis Williams (husband of their daughter Emma A.) became the guardian of the youngest children.
