    Notes 
    • Lafayette H. Noyes, of Morgan Township, is a native of Ohio, and came to Harrison County in 1867. He was born in Athens County, Ohio, March 11, 1846, and is a son of Joseph and Matilda Noyes, natives of Maine and Ohio respectively. The parents are both deceased. There were three children in our subject's father's family, and he is the only one living. His early life was spent in Athens County, Ohio, where he attended the common schools and also the Academy. His young heart was fired with patriotism during the dark days of the civil war. When President Lincoln was calling for more men to cope with the Rebel hoard of the Southern States (June 22, 1863), our subject enlisted in Athens County, Ohio, as a member of Company A, One Hundred and Twenty-ninth Ohio Infantry. He was seventeen years of age at the time of his enlistment, and was assigned to the Army of the Cumberland. Their regiment pursued the Morgan raiders. He was at Cumberland Gap, Tenn., and remained there during the siege. He was discharged March, 1864, at Cleveland, Ohio, when he returned home and remained until 1867, and in the fall of that year came to Harrison County, Iowa, and engaged himself as a common laborer for his older brother, Capt. John Noyes. In 1871 he bought forty acres of land, to which he has added from time to time until he now owns four hundred acres, all enclosed with a fence, and about three hundred acres under cultivation. He engaged in the grain business at Mondamin in 1877, and does an average business of $75,000 to $100,000 per year.

      He was united in marriage September 8, 1883, in Athens County, Ohio, to Emma Wedge, the daughter of Fayette W. and Emma (Cooley) Wedge, of Ohio. As a result of this marriage union three children there have been born - Hugh W., August 11, 1885; Chester A., January 2, 1887, died October 5, 1891; Lucille, born January 18, 1889, died October 14, 1891.

      Our subject's wife is a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church. Politically, Mr. Noyes is a Republican. He belongs to Barnes Post, No. 103, G.A.R., at Mondamin.)
