    Notes 
    • The Noyes Descendants, Vol. I: Algernon was a prosperous farmer and a prominent man in the community where he lived and died. He was president of the old settlers club, and vice-president of the State Agricultural Society.

      Memorial & Genealogical Record: A.F. Noyes followed in the steps of his worthy sire, for he was not only one of the most successful and progressive farmers of Dodge County, but as a citizen he was also a public-spirited, honorable and useful. He owes his nativity to the county and township in which he is now residing, and what is more, was born on a farm of which he is now the owner. His eyes first opened on the light of day November 1, 1848, and when he was about two or three years of age his parents moved to a farm which is now within the city limits of Beaver Dam, in which place he was first initiated into the mysteries of the "three R's," and where he completed a thorough, practical education. He spent three months of one winter in working at the tinner's trade, but was not pleased with the business, and came to the conclusion that the free, independent and wholesome life of the farmer was good enough for him, and time has shown the wisdom of his choice of vocation. He remained at home with his parents until he had attained his majority, at which time he moved to Southwestern Minnesota, where he bought a 200-acre tract of land and began farming for himself. He remained in that State for three years, but after losing his crops by grasshoppers, in the summer of 1873, he decided to return to his native county. He took charge of his father's farm for a year thereafter, then purchased forty acres for himself. In 1877 he bought the farm on which he is now residing, two miles east of Beaver Dam, where he has since continued to live and carry on his agricultural operations, being quite extensively and successfully engaged in the raising of stock. He has a handsome and comfortable residence, together with large barns and outbuildings of all necessary kinds, and about his fine place has made many modern improvements. Every nook and cranny of his farm is neatly kept and gives abundant proof of the energy, thought and care that have been bestowed upon it by this most thrifty and progressive of farmers. His estate comprises 690 acres in Beaver Dam Township, 610 acres of which is in one body. He is an influential and active member, and does much to promote the interest and success of the Farmer's Institute in Dodge County, and has given his best efforts, time and money to promote the science of agriculture, and is well known throughout his portion of the State as a champion of everything pertaining to the advancement of agriculture. He has also taken an active interest in the affairs of his Township, especially as regards educational and road matters and has done much to promote the best interests of his immediate vicinity. He was married in Dec. 1873 to Miss Amy BAker, a native of England and a daughter of William and Ann (Bradley) BAker, who came to America in 1851 and settled in Dodge County, Wis., of which section they were among the earliest settlers. Mrs. Baker died about 1856, but Mr. Baker is still living. To Mr. and Mrs. Noyes two children have been given: Bessie and William.
