Charles B. Nobles

Charles cash-claimed a quarter in 34, 5N 47W in 1890, then proved up a homestead adjoining it in 1895, then another quarter in 1895 on a timber claim.


He might be the C. B. Nobles in 1860 Obion County Tennessee, age 3 , and there in 1870 with A. W. 49 and Nancy 15.  Charles B., is 12.

In 1880 Dunklin County Missouri Charles B. Nobles is with the S.R. Steele household. (Charles' brothers John and Absolom had also moved to Missouri)

If the "Charles Noble, car repairer" at the railroad in 1891 McCook is the same one (a carpenter), then he could have cheap transport to file and maintain his claims.

More likely is the Ohio Charles B. Nobles. born 1833.  In 1870 he's 37, married to Sarah 34, with daughter Lula 8, and his parents Charles 74 and Sarah 75 Nobles are with them.

In 1880 he's in Meigs County, married to Sarah, with daughter Lula M. and mother Sarah F. Nobles.

1888 "The following pensions were granted Nebraskans to-day ; Charles B. Nobles, Wahoo"

Another Charles B. Nobles was older - a Union Veteran in the 1890 census of Cass County Nebraska. 1901 Linn County Iowa history has George Stansbury M.D. - daughter :Sarah Jane married Charles Nobles, and they reside in Plattsmouth, Nebraska."

In 1900 Plattsmouth C.B. Noble born April 1833 in Ohio, father in Vermont, mother in Canada, is married to S.J. September 1840 in Maryland - one child, still living.  C.B. is a carpenter.  With them are daughter Lulu N. Humphrey, Nov 1862 in Ohio. two children -one still living.  Carl Humphrey Nov 1884 "son" Nebraska, no occupation.\

1902 "Mrs. Charles B. Nobles - Plattsmouth, Nebraska , June 11 -Mrs. Charles B. Nobles, aged 62 years, died at her home in this city last evening.  The funeral services were conducted by Rev. J.T. Baird this afternoon at the residence.  Besides her husband she leaves one daughter, Mrs. Lulu N. Humphrey."

In 1910 contributors to the Rutland Freeville Baptist Church were Mrs. Lulu Humphrey and Charles Nobles of Plattsmouth, Nebraska

Lula NOBLES HUMPHREY Miles - Rutland Twp. Cemetery  Meigs County, Ohio
 Born: 25 Nov 1861 Rutland, Ohio
 Died: 01 Jun 1939 Rutland, Meigs, Ohio
 parents: Charles Nobles & Sarah Stansbury
 spouse: William Humphreys
In 1885 Saunders County Nebraska W.A. Humphrey, 25 is a physician - Lulu is 22, and Carl is ten months old.
 According to her death certificate Lula was divorced at the time of her death  \

1900 Plattsmouth Lulu N. Humphrey filed for divorce against W.A. Humphrey  "demurrer was sustained so far as setting aside the divorce, but overruled as to alimony."

In the same Rutland cemetery is a Charles B. Nobles - no dates and a MARY STANSBURY NOBLES May 24, 1825 - July 24, 1880.  (Wife of Ira)  Wonder if two Nobles boys married Stansbury girls.

Ohio death records have Charles born April 7 1833 in Ohio, parents Chas. F. NObles and Sarah Winn, dying January 27, 1914 in Rutland, Meigs County.
