Notes:  Walter, from Elma Twp., and Agnes, from Fullarton Twp., were married by Rev. Robert Hamilton in the Avonbank (Motherwell) Presbyterian Church in Downie Twp., Perth, Ontario.  The marriage was by proclamation, and cost $3.00.  Andrew Noble, his brother, and Hannah Detwiller, her sister, were the marriage witnesses.

The 1861 Canada census lists Walter and Agnes twice.  First as newlyweds, living with or near her parents and family in Fullarton Twp.  Second, they are listed as living in Elma Twp., next to a Scottish family.

In the 1871 Canada census, Walter and Agnes were living with their five oldest children in the township of Logan, Perth.  Their first-born twin boys had died at birth.  By the 1881 Canada census, they had eight children.  Alexander died in 1881, and Walter was born in 1883.  In the 1891 Canada census, the family was still in Logan.

Walter and Agnes immigrated to the United States in 1893, becoming naturalized citizens.  Except for their oldest son James, all of their then living children immigrated with them.  The family settled in Ontario, San Bernardino, California.  In the 1900 U.S. census, they were living in Ontario, California, with only two of their children, Mary and Walter. Walter died in 1901, and Agnes eventually moved to Alhambra to live with her daughters.  Agnes died in 1914.  Both are buried in the Noble plot in the Bellevue Memorial Park, Ontario, California.
