James Allen Noyes and granddaughter Pansy

James Allen Noyes strolls with granddaughter Pansy Noyes, eldest child and daughter of Ray Noyes and Bettie Brewer. I’m guessing the photo is from about 1900 when Pansy would have been 5 years of age. James Allen would have been about 74. This photo would have been taken in Liberal, Barton County, Missouri.

Elizabeth Noyes Lovett

Original photo courtesy of Nancy Benton. Attempt at some restoration Added a little color to see what the effect would be. This photo of Elizabeth, a daguerreotype, would have been taken somewhere in the late 1840s to about 1850. Perhaps it was made in 1848, at the time of her husband’s death. Or was it […]

Liberal, Missouri 1914 Fire Insurance Map

Missouri Digital Heritage has a 1914 Liberal Missouri Fire Insurance Map of the business district. It’s difficult to navigate as in the enlargement it doesn’t show the full map, only a small portion at a time, so I took one of the larger thumbnails, in which you can’t read the businesses, and enlarged that and […]

Sarah Melissa Noyes

The date is not noted for the photo. I would guess that it’s early 1860s. Interestingly, she appears to be wearing several rings on her left hand. It’s a wonderful photo with the detail of her belt, and other decoration such as the ribbon about her neck. Perhaps that is a sewing basket upon which […]

Photo of Dorothy and Mary Lou Noyes

Artistic license taken Original courtesy of Nancy Benton Sisters Dorothy Noyes and Mary Lou Noyes, daughters of Ray Noyes and Elizabeth “Bettie” Brewer Noyes. Gram always took pride in having been a fashionable dresser in her youth. The photo was perhaps taken in Liberal, Missouri but is not outside the family home. The style would […]

Photo of Cora and Pansy Noyes as Children, Liberal, Missouri

A nice photo of Cora and Pansy Noyes, daughters of Ray Noyes and Elizabeth Jane “Bettie” Brewer. Cora was born 1897 and Pansy was born 1895. The photo seems to me about 1900. I tried a restoration plus a colored version. Lost the full size of the colored version somewhere along the way. The place […]

Notes on Caroline Atwell Noyes’ Family by Pansy Noyes Bryant

Courtesy of Nancy Benton. Caroline Atwell (born Oct. 2, 1835) told her oldest daughter Emma Viola Noyes Harmon many interesting things of her life in Vermont. Her mother was Rachel Scagel and was apparently brought up above ordinary rank. An old copy of Goldsmith’s “Vicar of Wakefield” is still in Mrs. Harmon’s possession and it […]

David Nathaniel Brewer and Delana Louise Fowler

I don’t recollect seeing very often early images clearly showing a woman as pregnant. The photo , courtesy of Nancy Benton, would have likely been taken in Barton County, Missouri. David Nathaniel Brewer arrived in Barton County, Missouri before the establishment of Liberal in the early 1880s. Nancy Benton writes of David and Delana: David […]

Will of David Nathaniel Brewer

The will of David Nathaniel Brewer divided his land between children, Mary Katherine Spurling, Jessie Jones, Walter Brewer, Elizabeth Jane Noyes, Lewis Brewer, John David Brewer. His son Walter was administrator and turned in a sale bill totaling $341.33. I don’t see Daniel Brewer listed. Perhaps a part of the document is cut off? I […]
