|Notes: James Noble, known as Jim, was born 24 Feb 1862 in the Logan Township, Perth County, Ontario,
Canada. He was the oldest son of Walter Noble and Agnes Detwiller. In the 1871,
1881, and 1891 Canadian census records, he was living with his parents and siblings in
Logan Twp., Perth, Ontario. His siblings included Marion (1864), Alexander (1867),
Robina (1869), Andrew (1871), Janet (1874), Mary (1876), Amy (1881), and Walter (1883).|
Jim married Robina Campbell on 27 Jan 1892 in Elma, Perth. They had a family of seven children, and on their birth registrations, he is listed as a farmer.
In 1894, land records show Jim leasing the E 1/4 WIN? 1/2 of Lot 32,
Concession 4 in Logan. In the 1901 Canada census, the family was living in Grey
Township, Huron(East). There were four children and a domestic servant, Mary Parrott.
James occupation was listed as a clerk. In the 1911 Canada census, the family was
still living in Grey, Huron(East), and all seven children were listed in the census.
The family farm was near Cranbrook, and photographs show that the family had a large barn
and other buildings. At left, Jim and his boys are shown working on one of the
haystacks in 1912. In the 1921 Canada census, Jim was listed as a carpenter.
The family was still on the Cranbrook farm.|
Although his younger brothers and sisters, as well as his parents, moved to California, Jim remained in Canada. However, one son, Harvey, was born in California in 1896. Jim visited the family in Ontario, California, at least once more before his death in 1942, as he is in the framed "colored" photograph (seen below) of six of the Noble brothers and sisters then living in 1929. The more informal photograph of the brothers and sisters (seen right) was taken the same day.
Jim died 10 Apr 1942, and is buried in the Knox Presbyterian Cemetery, Cranbrook, Ontario.
