    Notes 
    • He entered the United Statess Naval Academy, September 26, 1864, and was graduated with honor in 1868. His first service afloat was on the Guerrierreer, flag-ship of the South Atlantic Squadron, 1868-69. He was promoted to be ensign in 1869. He was in the European fleet from 1869-1872, was promoted to be master in 1870 and commissioned lieutenant in 1873, which rank he held at his death. From 1873-1877 he was with the South Pacific fleet; was on the training ship Minnesota from 1877 to 1880. In 1881 he was ordered to the Asiatic squadron on board the Richmond where he met his death by accident, August 29, 1883. His last command was for his men to save themselves while he, looking out for their safety, died at his post of duty. He had previously received honorable mention for saving the lives of seamen at peril to his own. It was in the days of the Civil War when naval service was of utmost value that Boutelle Noyes gave himself to his country. In the days of peace, promotion was slow, but his high ideals, great ability, and faithful performance of duty seemed to assure the highest rank in his profession.

      His body was returned to the United States and he was buried in the family lot with his parents and three infant brothers. He married Charlotte Bleecker Luce of Rhode Island on June 25, 1879. They had two sons Robert Boutelle Noyes and Stephen Henley Noyes.
