      WARREN NOYES, second son of Bela and Honor (Prince) Noyes, was born in Norway, Me. March 7, 1832. From his parents he received the goodly heritage of a vigorous and virtuous ancestry. After passing his childhood and early manhood on the farm, attending the common schools, and adding to his robust physique by hard labor, at the age of twenty he went to sea, but soon returned, and April 21, 1852 he began his long and continued faithful service in connection with the Atlantic & St. Lawrence (Grand Trunk) railroad by working in the yard at Portland... He was honest, industrious and manly, and soon took the first step upward. June 10, 1852 he began firing on an engine; July 1, 1853 he was detailed as engine driver on engine, "Casco" at Island Pond, then engaged in drawing the necessary materials for the contractors to complete the road to the boundary line. This work employed him until the completion and connection at the boundary of the Atlantic & St. Lawrence, and the St. Lawrence & Atlantic railroads. He took the first passenger train drawn over the A & St. L. R. R. when it lacked half a mile of completion. After the roads were united, Mr. Noyes was engineer on both the first freight train and the first passenger train which crossed the boundary line. From this time until April 1, 1857 he was engineer on passenger and freight trains running from Island Pond to Portland, and also, for three years of this time, was superintending the supply of wood along the line of the road, having, in this capacity, the charge of about forty men. April 1, 1857, he was advanced to the responsible position of locomtive foreman at Island Pond, where he remained until August 21, 1862. At this time the President had called urgently for loyal men to fill the demand for more soldiers in the Union army, and Mr. Noyes promptly responding by enlisting as a private in Company E, Fifteenth Vermont Volunteers, then being formed under the colonelcy of Redfield Proctor, afterwards governor of Vermont. As an evidence of the esteem of his comrades, Mr. Noyes was chosen captain by the very complimentary vote of ninety-six out of ninety-eight votes cast; the opposing candidate, for whom Mr. Noyes voted, receiving two votes. His regiment served for nine months in the Army of the Potomac; and it must not be forgotten, that, although not participating in any of the historic engagements of the war, these soldiers filled the places assigned them with as faithful service and as loyal obedience as any in the field. Returning to Island Pond after his regiment was mustered out in July 1863, Captain Noyes was gladly welcomed to his old position, and was in charge of the engines at that place until May 22, 1864. The brick engine-house there was built under supervision. He removed to Gorham in 1864 to supervise the large interests of the road as master mechanic, and has charge of the repairs on fifty engines running from Portland to Island Pond, and has 115 men under his direction; they build no new engines, but in making repairs they construct every portion of a locomotive, make new tenders, etc. Capt. Noyes has been located at Gorham for nearly a quarter of a century, and by his energetic and prompt handling of the affairs of the road, he has justified the confidence reposed in him. His fine presence, dignified manner, strict integrity and faithfulness have made him a very popular and useful superintendent. He married January 25, 1856, Mary Elizabeth, daughter of Joseph and Abigail (Cummings) York, of Norway, Me. Their children are Abbie F., Fred M. and Harry G. During these many years' residence in Gorham, Capt. Noyes has been an active promoted of the industry and prosperity of the town. In 1879 he built Noye's block.... The Gorham Five Cent Savings Bank was organized in 1872 with Capt. Noyes as president, which office he still fills. Democratic in politics, Capt. Noyes represented Gorham in the state legislature of 1873, but refused further political honors on account of the demands of his business. He has twice been offered the nomination of state senator, which, as his party were numerically in the majority, was equivalent to an election. He is member of Glen Lodge, No. 54 IOOF, and has passed through the chairs; and Eastern Star Encampment, Portland; he is also an active member of John E. Willis Post, No 59, G.A.R. He is a great lover of hunting and fishing.... His brothers, George W. being master mechanic at Island Pond, and R.P. filling various position on the Grand Trunk and other roads with ability.
