    Notes 
    • MI Pioneer & Historical Collections Vol XXX 1903-04 -- James was in War of 1812 and the Black Hawk Indian War. In both he was a musician and played the fife and flute. He was a great student of history. P 454 -- Captain James Noyes of Gourdneck Prairie and Ephraim Harrison of Prairie Ronde were captains of the Prairie troops.

      The Alphadelphia Association--Its History in Comstock, Kalamazoo Co., Michigan--The Alphadelphia Assn believed in pastoral communion. Coming down through the ages into our own time, we find Charles Fourier of France teaching this principle in America through Dr. H.F. Schetterly, a German, who lived in Comstock. A group of sturdy pioneers took up Alphadelphia society. Among them was James Noyes, born 1793. To live together in harmony was the object; to live and work and enjoy the benefits of each other's society and the fruits of their own labor like a happy, united family. After four year's trial, it was a total failure. There were 300 members all together. A large number put their farms into the Association. Others put in various kinds of property. James Noyes put in his saw mill which was valuable in furnishing lumber to the Society. From their first meeting on the domain March 21, 1844, until the last entry on the journal on April 30, 1848, the presidents were Anson Gelmutter, B. Wright, Harry Keith, Lymann Tubbs and James Noyes.

      Pioneer Society of Michigan, Vol I, page 334 (1874-76)--In 1825 there were nine small houses in Ann Arbor, MI, located and occupied as near as can be ascertained as follows: Elisha W. Rumsey occupied the "Wasterman Coffe House" and John Allen the block house. A long house with a frame addition stood on the northeast corner of Main and Ann Streets. Two small houses stood on opposite sides of Main Street near where Guffy's Store now stands and were occupied by the two brothers, James and George W. Noyes.

      James Noyes was an agent for the Indians when he lived at Pavilion, MI. The three children who survived (Elizabeth, James and Sarah Melissa) always told of the good times they had playing with the Indian boys and girls and of how many playmates they had during the time that the Alphadelphia Society existed and all the people lived in one community.

      James Noyes conducted a part of the underground railroad which helped escaping slaves get to Canada and freedom. Slaves were kept in his barn by day and then taken on by night to the next station. His second wife was a southern sympathizer, so this caused a great deal of friction.

      "History of Kalamazoo County, MI, Its Prominent Men and Pioneers, 1880--James Noyes came in October of 1830 from Ann Arbor, and settled NE/2,NW/4. Sect 23, where he built a log house and made improvements. He sold this land in 1831 and bought new lands in the township of Brady, on which he erected a sawmill, which, with his farm, he put into the Alphadelphia Society. On the disbanding of the society in 1848, he retained his property. He died at his home in Brady many years since. (p.353). From their first meeting on the domain March 21, 1844, until the last entry on the journal on April 30, 1848, the presidents were Anson Gelmutter, B. Wright, Harry Keith, Lymann Tubbs and James Noyes. (p.369).
