    Notes 
    • Per History of Pownal, Maine, Israel was included in a list of surveyors, field-drivers, and hog-reeves in 1808.

      Israel sold his property in Cumberland County to accompany his favorite minister, Rev. Daniel Plummer, to the Far West in the fall of 1817. Together with 14 other families, a total of 78 people, they traveled through Portland, Haverhill, Albany, up the valley of the Mohawk, across to Olean Point on the headwaters of the Allegheny River, down the Allegheny by boats and rafts to Pittsburgh, then down the Ohio to Lawrenceburg, Indiana where most of them located on Greenbriar Ridge, now known as the village of Manchester. Israel settled near "Mule Town" about 11 miles from Lawrenceburg on the Indianapolis State Road.

      The move was apparently due to the extreme cold and widespread crop failures in 1816, the year of "eighteen hundred and froze to death" which resulted from the world-wide dust cloud following the explosion of Mt. Tambara in Indonesia.

      Before he left Maine, Israel was thrown from a horse which trod on his forehead and smashed his skull in just over the eye. He was taken up for a corpse, many pieces of bone were taken out, and he carried the scar into his grave.

      Per Indiana Land Entries, Cincinnati District, 1801-1840, Israel participated in the following land transactions in Dearborn County T6N, R2W of 1st PM on 26 Dec 1817:

      - Filed for purchase of NE 1/4 Sec 17. Relinquished.

      - Purchased SE 1/4 Sec 17

      - Purchased NE 1/4 Sec 20. Relinquished W 1/2 to George Clark, 18 March 1830. Vol. II, p.87, shows a final certificate #142 for the entire NE 1/4 to Israel Noyes.
