Comrade Noyes was born in the town of Jay, in the state of Maine, March 25, 1833, and was 81 years, 2 months and 10 days of age at his death. He came to Wisconsin thirty-eight years ago. He leaves to mourn him, his wife, three children by his former wife and seven children by his present wife, thirty grandchildren and three great grandchildren. Comrade Noyes served in the Civil war from 1862 to 1865, and was in fifteen of the most severe engagements. He was also in the hospital six weeks. Rev. S. L.

Among those from out of town who attended the funeral were A. F. Noyes, wife and son of St. Cloud, Minn.; H. J. Noyes and Mr. and Mrs. John McFadden of Proctor, Minn.

    Notes 
    • His name was John Franklin but he most often went by Franklin John or Franklin J. or just "Frank".

      A note from an early handwritten genealogy:
      John Franklin Noyes served in Co. H, 29th Mass. Infantry from 1862 to 1865 and was in 15 of the most severe engagements. He spent 6 weeks in the hospital and was carried off the battle field twice for dead. The last time, the Irishman that was carrying him said when he raised up "lay still Frank, you're kilt!"

      Information received from his service records, and also found a copy of his regimental history called History of the 29th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry.

      He enlisted for three years on August 12th, 1862 at Charlestown, Mass when he was 29 years old. His home of record was Cambridge, Mass, with his occupation listed as teamster. He served as a private in Co. H. He was honorably discharged on Dec. 30, 1864 at Blaines Cross Roads, TN. It appears that he served most of the war as a "pioneer" or what would now be called a combat engineer.

      For the first part of the Civil War the 29th was part of the famous Irish Brigade, and in September, 1862 fought at the Battle of Antietam.

      "The 29th Massachusetts was something rare in the history of the Irish in the American Civil War: it was a non-Irish regiment that served in the ranks of the famous Irish Brigade for nearly five months (mid-June through early December, 1862). After its stint in the Irish Brigade, the 29th served the remainder of the war in the Union's Ninth Corps and had the distinction of earning more legitimate Medals of Honor than any other regiment in the history of the United States Army."

      The Battle of Antietam was the most costly day in American military history, and the 29th fought along with the Irish Brigade at the hardest fought point in the battle, Bloody Lane.

      Other notable battles of the 29th included Fredericksburg, Vicksburg, Cold Harbor, Petersburg, and the Battle of the Mine.
