Allen Marble Noyes

Allen Marble NOYES was born 30 Oct 1867 “4 o’clock AM” at Anna, Union County, Illinois to James Allen and Caroline Atwell Noyes. He married Susie REYNOLDS 1 May 1897 at age 29. He died, 21 April 1939, at Dexter, Stoddard County, Missouri, at the age of 72 and was buried in Harvey Cemetery.

Allen made the land run into Indian Territory in 1889 and settled on a farm near Miller, OK. Since he had made the first run and was experienced, he was the teacher of a group of ten men who made the run into the Cherokee Strip in 1893. They met at Orlando, OK. several days before at the home of one of the men. They rode into the strip early to choose the place they wanted which was about midway or nearly a 30 mile ride from the border. The farms were adjoining ones in a bend of two streams called Red River and Bunch Creek. On the morning of September 16 1893 everyone lined up on the border. The only food they carried with them was bread.”

Allen and Susie had 8 children:

  1. Carrie Noyes b. 1902 in Oklahoma Territory
  2. Julian J. Noyes b. circa 904 in Oklahoma Territory
  3. Marble J. Noyes b. circa 1906 in Missouri
  4. Lincoln Noyes b. circa 1907 in Missouri.
  5. Victor Noyes b. circa 1911 in Missouri.
  6. Cephia Noyes b. circa 1913 in Missouri.
  7. Lawrence K. Noyes b. circa 1915 in Missouri.
  8. Drexel Noyes b. circa 1916 in Missouri.

A July 23 1887 letter from his mother Caroline places Allen in Sunny Dale.

Another letter survives that was written April 23 1892 from Caroline Atwell Noyes to Ray Noyes from Allen’s place in Miller, Oklahoma.

We have two or three letters from 1902 written by Allen’s mother, Bettie, when she was visiting.

I’ve been unable to locate Allen’s family in the 1900 and 1910 censuses. By 1920 they were in Elk, Stoddard, Missouri.
