Obituaries for Elizabeth “Bettie” Brewer Noyes of Liberal, Missouri

We have two obituaries for Bettie Brewer. I appear to have lost the obitnoyesbbettie1.gif of the below obituary, but still have the second. Both were courtesy of Nancy Benton.

Elizabeth “Bettie” Brewer Noyes (line of the blog’s author) was the wife of Ray Noyes and daughter of David Nathaniel Brewer and Delana Louise Fowler.

WIDOW OF LATE RAY NOYES–LIFETIME RESIDENT OF LIBERAL–HER FIRST BAPTISM–IN LIBERAL METHODIST CHURCH–SON AND THREE DAUGHTERS SURVIVE–FUNERAL SATURDAY AFTERNOON

“Mrs. Bettie NOYES, eighty-six, lifetime and prominent resident of the Liberal community, died at Oak Haven rest home at FT. SCOTT, Tuesday forenoon. The eighty six year old woman had been in frail health for the past five years, suffering from degeneration of the circulatory system. She had been a patient in the FT.SCOTT rest home for the past eighteen months.

“She was born on the farm of her parents, David Nathaniel BREWER and Delanie Louise BREWER, three and a half miles northeast of Liberal, July 22, 1877. She was married to Ray NOYES, a young LIBERAL farmer, in 1895.

“She and her husband settled on the Noyes homestead in the LIBERAL vicinity following their marriage, where they reared their children and took a prominent part in the general affairs of the community and in the Methodist church. At the death of her husband in 1941, the widow took up residence in LIBERAL where she remained until it was necessary for her to enter the rest home.

“She was the first person to be baptized as a member of the Methodist Church, in the organization of which her father had played a leading role. She was twelve years of age at that time, and maintained an abiding and devoted interest in the church throughout her lifetime.

“She leaves one son, Jim NOYES, widely known and successful LIBERAL farmer; and three daughters, Mrs. Charley BRYANT, well-known Liberal woman, Mrs. Cora DIXON, Shreveport, Louisiana, and Mrs. Lloyd MCKENNEY of Carthage. One daughter, Mrs. Mary Lou HURT, died in 1953.

“The body was taken to the Komantz (?) funeral home at FT. SCOTT to be prepared for burial. The last rites were set for 2:00 p.m. Saturday at the Methodist church at LIBERAL, the Rev. Lavrey LANEVILLE (?) officiating. Internment follows in the Liberal City….”

The second obituary for Bettie Brewer reads:

FUNERAL SERVICES FOR MRS. BETTY NOYES

“Funeral services for Mrs. Betty Noyes who died July 9 at Oak Haven rest home in Fort Scott were held last Saturday afternoon at 2 o’clock in the Liberal Methodist church with the pastor, Rev. Larry Linville, officiating.

“Mrs. Evan Cooper and Mrs. Howard Talbott sang “How Great Thou Art” and “Rock of Ages.”

“Casket bearers were Albert Snodgrass, Raymond (?), Frank Miller, Rex Jackman, Bob Williams and Francis Jones.

“Mrs. Noyes was born July 22 1877 on a farm three and a half miles northeast of Liberal, the daughter of David Nathaniel Brewer and Delana Louise Brewer. She was married to Ray Noyes in 1895. They settled on a homestead in this vicinity and lived there until the death of Mr. Noyes in 1941. Mrs. Noyes moved into town after the death of her husband and resided at ther home on north Main street until 18 months ago when she entered the home at Fort Scott.

“Among those from a distance attending the funeral were Mr. and Mrs. Robert Benton and family of Tulsa, Okla., Mr. and Mrs. Vernon Smith of Selah, Wash., Mr. and Mrs. David Brewer, Mrs. A. Montgomery and Mrs. A. Moore of Everton, Mr. and Mrs. Schyler Brewer and Mr. and Mrs. Clyde Brewer of Stockton, Mr. and Mrs. Walter Brewer, Mr. and Mrs. Alva Brewer, Mr. and Mrs. Paul Brewer, and Mr. and Mrs. Ernest Brewer of Joplin, Mrs. and Mrs. Phillip Hurt and family of Prairie Village, Kan., Mrs. Stella Poindexter of Greenfield, Mr. and Mrs. Carl Spurling of Mapleton, Kan., Mrs. Pearl Ferona (?) of Lamar and Mr. and Mrs. John Daly of Carthage. ”

COMMENT: The Dalys were close friends of daughter Dorothy Nadeen and her husband, Lloyd McKENNEY. It would be interesting to know who the family of Vernon SMITH was, who came from Selah Washington for the funeral, Selah being where Jessie Brewer JONES, Bettie’s sister, had moved.

Unknown paper. Source: Lee Weller

DAVID FOWLER died at his home one mile south and half a mile east of
Savonburg, August 27th 1906 [Savonburg, KS is between Stark in Neosho Co.
and Elsmore in Allen Co on the MKT railroad line.] He was born in Stokes
County, North Carolina, June 9th 1831. On the day of his death he was 75
years, 2 months and 27 days old. The funeral service was held at the
residence on Tuesday morning at 10 o’clock conducted by Rev. L. J.
Gillham, pastor of the M. E. church of Savonburg, and his remains were
laid to rest in the Erie Cemetary. He moved from North Carolina to
Illinois and came to Kansas in 1867, thirty-nine years ago. He settled on
a tract of land in Neosho County, now known as the Fluber farm. He sold
this farm and bought R. G. Craven’s farm six miles north of Walnut, later
bought a farm near Savonburg where he lived till he died. He leaves his
companion, four children, three brothers, two sisters, nine
grandchildren, and kindred and many friends to mourn his death. His
children are Mrs. Laura Hedges, Walnut Kansas, James D. Fowler, Stark
Kansas, John W. Fowler, Rialto, California, Mrs. E. Smith, Odense,
Kansas, Gideon Fowler [brother], Kansas City, and his sisters Mrs.
Rebecca Kelso, Havana Kansas and Mrs. Lousetta Dillon, Bloomington, Ill.
Early in his life he united with the Christian Church, but later, in
1872, he joined the M. E. Church. He has lived in the country surrounding
Walnut for thirty-nine years. His life was linked with every enterprise.
He was a hardy pioneer ahd helped to turn the virgin soil, plant trees,
build homes, schoolhouses, and churches, and has lived to see this part
of the state develop into a rich and fertile country. He was beloved and
respected by all who knew him. The aged pilgrim has laid down his staff.
His companion, his daughters Laura and Etta and his son James were at his
bedside. The clock on the mantle shelf struck eleven. The sun shining
bright and clear. He had said farewell, his last farewell to his loved
ones, his eyes grew dim, his throbbing pulse ceased and his soul left the
body and started all alone on a long journey which has no homecoming in
this life. Its destination was to that far off country beyond the sun,
moon and stars and the sorrows of earth, where time will not wrinkle his
face or shrivel his hands, and whiten his locks. Blessed land of
immortality!”

6. ALFRED FOWLER OBITUARY
Unknown paper. Source: Lee Weller

“Alfred N. Fowler was born in Stokes County, North Carolina, January 31,
1833, and died at the home of his son O. F. Fowler, in Sedalia, Mo., July
5, 1912, aged 79 years, 5 months and five days.

The deceased moved to Illinois with his parents in 1851. In 1859, he was
married to Miss Sarah Lee. To this union were born three children, one
being dead. The two living are Web Fowler, who resides somewhere in the
West, and O. F. Fowler, who resides at Sedalia, Mo.

He was the son of William Fowler, and of a family of seven sons and three
daughters, all being now dead except his brother Robert who resides in
this city and a sister, Mrs. Lusetta Dillon of Bloomington Ill.

The father, mother and all the children and their families came to Kansas
in 1866 and located on farms between Walnut and St. Paul, but most of
them near St. Paul. In 1879 the deceased moved to St. Paul where he
became the manager and buyer for the Benedict Elevator Company, in which
capacity he remained for many years. In the fall of 1875 he was sent to
Walnut to buy grain for his company and the next spring he moved his
family here where continued the Fowler home until the death of his wife
July 21, 1907. Since that time he has made his home with his son in
Sedalia. This was a devoted husband and wife and it was hard to see their
home broken up by the cruel reaper of death. The deceased was stricken
with paralysis last November from which he never fully recovered and
twenty-four hours previous to his death he received a second attack from
which he never recovered.

The remains arrived here from Sedalia over the M. K. & T. at 3:10
Saturday afternoon and were taken direct to the cemetary where they were
laid to rest by the side of his wife in the Walnut cemetary.

The deceased was a good man and a pioneer of this community. He endured
the hardships of pioneer life, and it was nice to see that in his last
days he could be so tenderly cared for in the home of his son. This
should be a high privilege for any son or daughter to be so situated as
to care for a parent in their declining days, for it is always evident
that the parents care for their child when the child can not care for
itself.

Mr. [O. F.] Fowler and wife and son Lee, who is contracting agent for the
M. K. & T. in Texas, accompanied the remains to this city and in the
evening they were the guests of Mr. and Mrs. Robt. Fowler, returning to
their home in Sedalia on the Flyer Saturday night.”

DIRECT LINE

William FOWLER was born 13 April 1801 in Stokes Co. NC (now Forsyth County. NC)
to Samuel FOWLER and Margaret COFFER.

On 6 April 1824, in Stokes Co., NC, he married Elizabeth WESTMORELAND, daughter
of David S. WESTMORELAND and Rebecca BYNUM. The bondsman was a Marshal FOWLER
(not his brother, who was younger than he), witnessed by Matt M. MOORE.

North Carolina Marriage Bonds, 1741-1868
Bride: Elizabeth Westmoreland
Groom: William Fowler
Bond Date: 06 Apr 1824
County: Stokes
Record #: 01 096
Bondsman: Marshal Fowler
Witness: Matt M Moore
Bond #: 000138576

Elizabeth was born 11 May 1808 in Stokes County., NC.

William’s brother, Marshall, also married Elizabeth WESTMORELAND’s sister,
Sally Sarah.

William died of dropsy 26 Dec. 1877 in Neosho Co. KS. Elizabeth died May 8 1893
in Neosho Co. KS. Her tombstone in the Fowler Cemeter says she died at 84 yr,
11 mo. 28 days.

William and Elizabeth moved from NC to McLean Co. IL in the year 1853 according
to some sources, but John B. had to have been married to Mary Jane JOHNSON in
Illinois before 1853. Alfred FOWLER’s obituary gives the family as moving to
Illinois in 1851, so perhaps the family was already in Illinois and made the
move to McLean Co. in 1853. They then moved to Walnut, KS in 1867.

William donated land for the Fowler Cemetery in Erie KS. (GNIS: Fowler Cemetery
KS Neosho cemetery 373420N 0950653W Walnut)

Notes of Pearl Fowler Stewart, cousin to Anna Mary Hedges Weller, provided by
Lee Weller state:

“WILLIAM FOWLER of Stokes County, North Carolina, married Elizabeth L.
Westmoreland, April 6, 1824. In about 1853 they moved to McLean County,
Illinois, where they lived until October of 1866, when they came to Kansas,
settling near Osage Mission, now St. Paul [Neosho Co.], Kansas. They gave a
corner of their farm, about four miles south and west of Walnut for a cemetery.
It was called the Fowler cemetery. They and several of the other Fowlers are
buried there. During Elizabeth Westmoreland Fowler’s later years she made her
home with her son Robert W. Fowler and his family. The old family Bible records
the birth of a David Westmoreland on March 1st 1775, which I presume was her
father.”

General Notes: Wife – Elizabeth Louis + > Westmoreland
================================================================================

DIRECT LINE

Elizabeth was born 11 May 1808 in Stokes County., NC to David S. WESTMORELAND
and Rebecca BYNUM. On April 6 1824, in Stokes Co. NC, she married William
FOWLER, son of Samuel FOWLER and Margaret COFFER. The bondsman was a Marshal
FOWLER (not William’s brother, who was younger than he), witnessed by Matt M.
MOORE.

North Carolina Marriage Bonds, 1741-1868
Bride: Elizabeth Westmoreland
Groom: William Fowler
Bond Date: 06 Apr 1824
County: Stokes
Record #: 01 096
Bondsman: Marshal Fowler
Witness: Matt M Moore
Bond #: 000138576

William’s brother, Marshall, also married Elizabeth WESTMORELAND’s sister,
Sally Sarah.

William died of dropsy 26 Dec. 1877 in Neosho Co. KS. Elizabeth died May 8 1893
in Neosho Co. KS. Her tombstone in the Fowler Cemeter says she died at 84 yr,
11 mo. 28 days.

William and Elizabeth moved from NC to McLean Co. IL in the year 1853 according
to some sources, but John B. had to have been married to Mary Jane JOHNSON in
Illinois before 1853. Alfred FOWLER’s obituary gives the family as moving to
Illinois in 1851, so perhaps the family was already in Illinois and made the
move to McLean Co. in 1853. They then moved to Walnut, KS in 1867.

William donated land for the Fowler Cemetery in Erie KS. (GNIS: Fowler Cemetery
KS Neosho cemetery 373420N 0950653W Walnut)

Notes of Pearl Fowler Stewart, cousin to Anna Mary Hedges Weller, provided by
Lee Weller state:

“WILLIAM FOWLER of Stokes County, North Carolina, married Elizabeth L.
Westmoreland, April 6, 1824. In about 1853 they moved to McLean County,
Illinois, where they lived until October of 1866, when they came to Kansas,
settling near Osage Mission, now St. Paul [Neosho Co.], Kansas. They gave a
corner of their farm, about four miles south and west of Walnut for a cemetery.
It was called the Fowler cemetery. They and several of the other Fowlers are
buried there. During Elizabeth Westmoreland Fowler’s later years she made her
home with her son Robert W. Fowler and his family. The old family Bible records
the birth of a David Westmoreland on March 1st 1775, which I presume was her
father.”
