    Died 2 Jun 1831  Whitefield, Lincoln, Maine Find all individuals with events at this location  [6
    • (Ae. 69 y.)
    Notes 
    • Had a short Revolutionary service as a private in Capt. Pride's company in October, 1779. As a young man he joined his brother Cutting in Brunswick.

      Thomas of Brunswick deeded one-eighth of his father's homestead [Cumberland Deeds 38:68]. In 1804-5-6 he was selectman of Brunswick, his only public service seen. About 1827 this family removed to Whitefield, Maine, where they had no known family or property connection and where "Thomas Noyes formerly of Brunswick" died [Portland Advertiser 2 June 1831].

      Deeds show that much property passed through his hands during his active life, but there are none to indicate that he left any appreciable estate.
