    • (Obit: Alfred L. Noyes, 68, son of the late Josiah and Sybil Noyes, died Monday at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Donald A. Atwater at Limestone, Maine, where he had arrived the previous Saturday to visit his sons and daughter in that town, which had always been his home until he came to Conway about seven years ago and purchased the Elmwood farm on the West side.

      In his home town of Limestone, Maine, Mr. Noyes had been a successful business man, dealing in lumber and wood products at Noyes Mill after the death of his father. He also operated a large farm, and was president of the Limestone Trust Co. After several years he moved to the village where he conducted a starch factory and a feed and grain store previous to his coming to Conway where he has been extensively engaged in farming and dairying.

      His funeral was held Thursday afternoon in the Methodist Church at Limestone, with Rev. Homey Hughey officiating, assisted by Mrs. Evangeline Hughey who furnished music and a solo. The pall bearers were his nephews, McKinley Spears, Roy Thompson, Josiah Thompson, Cecil Thompson, Ernest Thompson, and Elwood Noyes. The Masonic Lodge, of which he was a member, attended the funeral in a body and held their impressive rites at the Ward Cemetery, where he was buried in the family lot. Survivors include his wife, formerly Miss Ethel Long, to whom he was married in 1898, one daughter, Mrs. Dora Atwater, and five sons, Josiah, Gerald and Warren, all of Limestone, Linwood Noyes of Caribou, Me., and Philip Noyes of Conway.

    Notes 
    • After their marriage they lived in Noyes Mills, a small settlement in the town of Limestone, on a farm located across the road from the mill. Their children were all born in Limestone, Maine.

      In the Fort Fairfield Review issue dated January 10, 1906 under Noyes Mills it states:

      "Alfred Noyes is sawing and shipping about 35,000 laths per day. Patrick McCallan has 5 teams drawing lath wood to the mill. Charles Noyes was here last Friday doing business with his brother A. L. Noyes. Alex Montgomery is cutting lath wood for the mill.

      George Shaw is running the snap dragen in A. L. Noyes's mill. Charles Foley, Luke Berry, Dan Chambers and son Aubrey all of Calais are sawing lath for A. L. Noyes."


      In the October 13, 1909 issue of the same paper the fire at the mill is described as follows:

      "Alfred L. Noyes' sawmill, Limestone, 2 miles north of the village, on the Van Buren road, was wholly burned Tuesday afternoon about 4:00 o'clock. The storehouse, containing a large quantity of kiln-dried lumber and the new seats for the Catholic church was also burned.

      The fire started in the rear of the engine-house, which was separate from the main mill and soon jumped to the mill itself. The fire company from Limestone came out and succeeded in saving small houses occupied by some of the mill hands, also the house of Mr. Noyes and Daniel Getchell.

      The loss is estimated as from $20,000 to $25,000. Insurance $10,000. All sympathize deeply with Mr. Noyes in the loss of his mill, which is a great injury to the country roundabout."

      ALFRED L. NOYES, one of the principal mill- owners, lumberman and farmers of Limestone, Maine, where he was born, September II, 1877, is a member of an old and distinguished family in this State, and a son of Josiah M. and Sybil B. (Davis) Noyes, old and highly-respected residents of Limestone, where his father was engaged in business as a farmer and mill-owner for many years before his death. The childhood of Alfred L. Noyes was passed in his native town, and he attended there the local common schools, where he distinguished himself as a bright and industrious pupil. Upon completing his studies at these institutions, Mr. Noyes took up farming as an occupation, and has continued in that line up to the present time. He also engaged in the lumber business and became the owner of a sawmill in this vicinity. Besides carrying on an extensive business in this line Mr. Noyes has also become interested in various other industrial enterprises hereabouts, and is now the owner of a large grist mill and starch factory at Limestone. He has also been exceedingly interested in financial operations here and is at the present time a director in the Limestone Trust Company. Mr. Noyes is one of the leaders of the Republican party in this region, but, although he has held the office of selectman for a single term in this township, he is nevertheless, quite unambitious for political preferment of any kind, preferring to exert such influence as he is capable of in his capacity as private citizen. He is a well-known figure in fraternal circles, however, and is a member of Limestone Lodge, No.214, Ancient Free and Accepted Masons, and holds the office of treasurer in the same. Although not a formal member of any church, Mr. Noyes attends the Methodist Episcopal church at Limestone, and is a liberal supporter of the work of the church society, especially in connection with its various benevolent and philanthropic undertakings.
