    Notes 
    • The Noyes Descendants, Vol. I incorrectly identifies Moses on page 221 as a son of Josiah and Mary (Lunt) Noyes and shows all his children with Abigail Locke. This Moses is again correctly identified on page 206 with parents Nehemiah and Ann (Stickney) Noyes but no further information is provided beyond date of birth. He, his wife and children, have been confused or combined at times with the above Moses and his family; the trouble may have started with published records of the First Parish in Falmouth. There are grouped as one family five children baptized 1769-1787, two of them belonging to one Moses (wife Abigail [Cobb]) and three to another Moses (wife Abigail [Locke]).

      In the year 1794, one hundred and thirty of the inhabitants, residing in the west and north-west sections of ancient North Yarmouth, including what is usually called "Walnut Hill", and that part of the town incorporated in 1820 as the town of Cumberland, petitioned the Legislature to be incorporated as a separate parish, to be called "The North-West Religious Society of North Yarmouth." Moses Noyes was among the petitioners. This church, often referred to as the "Second Congregational Church in North Yarmouth was raised on the Tuttle Road near the meeting house and partook of a more conservative character. (OTNY p.23)

      Moses Noyes is listed on the 1794 Tax List of North Yarmouth as 3 pounds 6 shillings 2 pence. (OTNY p.107)

      TAG: Moses of Gorham bought in North Yarmouth in 1785 and apparently was never of Falmouth after 1776. [Cumberland Deeds 11:67, 475; 14:85; 16:361].
