Delana Brewer and family, tinted, c. 1924

Delana Fowler Brewer was the wife of David Nathaniel who’d died in 1921 in Greenfield, Dade, Missouri. Levy Jones was a son-in-law, husband of daughter Jessie. Mary Brewer was another daughter, as was Bettie Brewer Noyes, wife of Ray Noyes. Mary Lou and Dorothy were daughters of Bettie Noyes. Lena Minor was a granddaughter of Bettie Brewer Noyes by Cora Vera Noyes and John J. Minor, Cora’s first husband.

Wonderfully enough, Jim and Dieanna Swearngin sent me a photo from the same reunion that had come down through Dieanna’s family which shows everyone gathered in front of the porch.

From the look of the front porch, I think this photo was taken at the Ray Noyes home in Liberal, Missouri.

Bettie Brewer Noyes was the wife of Ray Noyes. They lived and died at Liberal, Missouri. Son Ray James was born 1903 at Liberal and died there May 15 1969. I don’t know where this photo was taken but my guess is a vacation is involved.

Elizabeth Jane “Bettie” Brewer was born 1877 in Liberal, Barton, Missouri to David Nathaniel Brewer and Delana L. Jane Fowler. In 1895, she married Ray Noyes, son of James Allen Noyes and Caroline Atwell.

The picture would have been taken in 1891 at Moore studio in Liberal. Another studio operating at about that time and later was the Fritts photo studio.

June 6th, Ray Noyes letter to Bettie Noyes

Dated with a month and day but no year, I have vacillated back and forth on whether this letter from Ray to Bettie Noyes would have been written during Bettie’s 1902 June visit with the family of Allan Noyes (a brother of Ray) in Oklahoma. Bettie’s first letter to Ray (at least the first of her two surviving letters) was written May 30th, and then another was from June 23rd, and I was given the impression she wrote frequently. However, Ray’s letter, written in response to one from Bettie which hasn’t survived, mentions that her letter had been dated the 12th but not postmarked until the 14th, which would be May 12th and May 14th. So, is this from another year? Or is it possible that the dates only appeared to be the 12th and 14th, and were so transcribed, when instead they were the 2nd and 4th. It seems more likely to me that the dates were June 2nd and June 4th. Mail traveled and was delivered quickly. Bettie could write a letter to Ray and seemingly be certain he had received it the following day. Also, I’ve a difficult time imagining that Ray, who prompts Bettie in this letter to get her mail out more quickly, would have waited more than half a month to respond to her. Not only this but Ray appears to mention his brother, Paul, taking the cattle to “the nation” at the same time Bettie left, which would be the Osage Nation. It’s difficult for me to imagine Paul would have been gone for that long a period of time to take the cattle to the Osage Nation. He had his own farm to which to attend.

Yet, Ray states also that he had “set a hen” the week Bettie left and he imagines she will hatch some time that week. If it takes about 21 days for chicks to hatch then if the chicks were expected to hatch some time around the 8th (the 6th was a Friday), he would have set the hen around the 18th of May.

The letter is primarily concerned with answering inquiries Betty had written concerning their farm–which seem to be the only inquiries she’s made as lists his answers numerically and there are no answers concerning anything else. The letter, however, seems playful. Ray does a nice job describing his meal for the evening and teasing Bettie with how good it was.

Liberal MO June 6

Dear Girl, Your long welcome letter arrived today seems like yer were rather long getting it mailed the letter was dated the 12 and the (illegible) postmark was the 14, I would think when he is harrowing (?) wheat yer could get a letter mailed any day. Well I will answer questions first No. 1 The garden looks real nice the sweet corn is in tassel

No. 2 the blackberries are very fine the largest early harvest that I ever saw but there


wont be many of them

picked 22 qt. today and took them to town and sold them got $7.75 easy I think they will all be gone in 10 days more picked 3 qt of red raspberries and caned them and they made three pt. after they were caned. No. 3 Your chickens are doing real well considering their master but the old hen down at the cattle shed has had some bad luck and her brood has thinned out a good deal they all live on shelled corn now I set a hen the week after you left so you would have something to do when you got back she will hatch some time this week so I guess I will (illegible)


a job. You have just four little ducks left.

No. 4 The timothy (?) looks real nice but not a great big crop but a good average will likely comence setting about the first of next month.

No. 5 how I get along batching well just Burn (?) but to tell you what that means I will tell you what I had for supper tonight and then you can guess To commence writing I had light bread with cream, Honey, Syrup and jelley to eat on it next I had Grape (illegible) and fingersnaps and some awful good minced ham, drank milk so you see I made no fire


now was that not good wages for any body would you not of liked to of ate with me. No. 6. No have not sold (illegible) more haven’t tried to (illegible) (person’s name illegible, Paul?) took his stock out of the pasture and went to the nation about the time you left he never said (illegible) about the pasture bill either

P.S. I f this aint long enough will lose more

1902 June 23 letter, Bettie to Ray Noyes

This is one of two surviving letters sent from Bettie Brewer Noyes to Ray Noyes when she went from Liberal, Missouri to Oklahoma to stay with Ray’s older brother, Allen, and his wife, Susie. It wasn’t a pleasure trip. Allen and Susie’s daughter, Carrie, is mentioned in the second letter, so Bettie was there subsequent her birth in 1902. But Susie had also been ill and in the hospital. The letter doesn’t give an indication of the nature of her illness, which appears to have required surgery, but whether the surgery was essential is unclear as Bettie states she felt Suzie’s stay in the hospital did more bad than good. Bettie does mention Suzie’s experiencing headaches. However, Bettie’s visit there seems to have less to do with Suzie’s having been ill than a subsequent, nearly immobilizing depression. Perhaps Suzie was actually suffering from postpartum depression.

The mail was fast back then. It may as well have been email, it was so fast. Bettie states that she imagines by now Ray has gotten the letter she wrote Sunday. June 23rd was a Monday and she’s writing Ray at about 10:00 at night. The Sunday letter would have to be the one she had written the day before. I have the impression that she was likely mailing him nearly every day.

Having been helping out with Allan and Susie for a full three weeks, Bettie’s patience was wearing thin between Suzie’s crying spells, which had not abated, and the arrival of relatives of Suzie’s which meant the descent of two continually crying children on the household. Bettie must not have been used to such behavior from her own children, which would fit with what I’ve heard of them running a very formal household. Also, Bettie seems to have gathered no understanding of the reason for Suzie’s crying spells, and appears to even be dubious of them. The household is in such a state of upset that she wonders how her brother-in-law can get farm hands.

Miller Okla. June 23

My dear Boy

I will write a little to you tonight. Joe Reynolds folks came and if nothing happens I will be at Home Sunday night.

It is awful hot here now. Allen is still cutting oats he has six men besides his self. but I don’t mind the work very bad but Joe Reynolds kids both squall ALL OF THE TIME and I get sick of that they don’t hardly let Carrie sleep any in the day time


I don’t know what they will do when I am not here to do the work but I dont feel that I am able or that it is my duty to stay and do for them all by myself.

I told Allen I wanted to come home and he said all right I thought maby he would try some more to get a girl but he has not. I don’t think there has been any change in Susie she has worried lots since Joe’s come. She takes a spell of crying most every day when the men come in to dinner. I think it strange that he can get any hands. How would you like to


go in to dinner and hear a woman crying and talking and two kids qualling as loud as they could every day.

Allen says it gives him the head ache and I have had a headache so much since I have been here though never so bad as to have to go to bed. We all want to come home awful bad. I expect you got my letter I wrote Sunday by now. We went and took it to the Office were all awfully tired when we got back well it is 2 and 1/2 miles up there but we got so lonesome here by ourselves


Well I will quit and go to bed and try and sleep a spell, it is so warm I don’t know whether I can go to sleep or not – but it is getting late for it was almost 10 oclock when I got through with the work. so by bye.

1902 May 30 Bettie Noyes to Ray

1902 May 30 Bettie Noyes to Ray
Miller, Oklahoma Territory

This is the first of two surviving letters sent from Bettie Brewer Noyes to Ray Noyes when she went from Liberal, Missouri to Oklahoma to stay with Ray’s older brother, Allen, and his wife, Susie. It wasn’t a pleasure trip. Allen and Susie’s daughter, Carrie, is mentioned in the second letter, so Bettie was there subsequent her birth in 1902. But Susie had also been ill and in the hospital. The letter doesn’t give an indication of the nature of her illness, which appears to have required surgery, but whether the surgery was essential is unclear as Bettie states she felt Suzie’s stay in the hospital did more bad than good. Bettie does mention Suzie’s experiencing headaches. However, Bettie’s visit there seems to have less to do with Suzie’s having been ill than a subsequent, nearly immobilizing depression. Perhaps Suzie was actually suffering from postpartum depression.

Bettie must have ridden down by train. The locations mentioned are fairly confusing. There is a town by the name of Miller currently in Pushmahata Co. OK in the SE portion of the state, but Bettie mentions being picked up at Oklahoma City in Oklahoma Co. An 1895 map shows a town of Miller in Oklahoma Count, in the Spring Creek area, toward the center of the state, below Logan and west of Pottawatomie. But she mentions Yonkers, which is in Wagoner Co. in the NE portion of the state.

Bettie and Ray’s children, Pansy and Cora, would have been only about 7 and 5 years of age respectively. In the second letter, Bettie says “we want to come home” which leads me to believe that Bettie had brought Pansy and Cora along with her.

Miller Okla. May 30 1902.

Dear Ray I got through allright had a fine trip. Allen met me at Oklahoma City the River was up and they could not get to Yonker (?). It has been raining every day for I don’t know how long it rained on us. Coming out just sprinkles though and we did not get wet we stayed all night in Oklahoma City and drove out the next morning

They seemed real glad I came but of course I


cant be sure whether they aimed for me to come or not the girl that is here is expecting to have to go any day I told Susie I would just as soon do all the work if I stayed and she said she wanted me to stay and they would let the girl stay untill she was sent for. I asked the girl what wages the girls got down here and she said from 250 to 600 a week and I asked Susie what they had to pay the girl and she said she did not know 200 dollars she guessed they had not ask her.

Susie took on so when I


got here untill I almost wished I had not come but she has a bad spell 2 or 3 times a day every day they say. She seemed awfull well this morning laughed and talked with me all morning but when Allen came in to dinner she had a bad feeling spell she dont never talk that way when Allen is not in I cant tell for sure How long I will stay Susie says they would like for me to stay but Allen has not said any thing about it and I have not asked him Susie dont take any interest in any thing or do any thing only what she is told so Allen could not


get along with out some body. When she was at Hospital several died and she saw them carried out and she thinks a good deal about that and talks about it and I think going there did more harm than good. Allen said they took her to the operating room twice first time they chloroformed her and she did not know it but next time they did not give her any thing and just took her by force and she just screamed and hallowed. I am awful sorry for Susie she complains all the time with her head hurting just like mine did that fall when I was sick I wanted to pick the ducks this evening but Susie wants me to go to town with her so I dont know what Ill do. I forgot to say it had cleared up.

by by until I write again.

Edna Stark Noyes Letter to Bettie Noyes, April 13 1897

Below is a letter from Edna Stark (b. 1872) wife of Paul Noyes (b. 1869) to Elizabeth “Bettie” Brewer Noyes (b. 1877), wife of Ray Noyes (b. 1874), a brother of Paul’s. The letter shows that at the time they were living in Whiterock, Oklahoma. The baby picture that Edna mentions as having received from Bettie would likely be one of Pansy, who was born Dec. 8 1895. Grace also mentions two of her own children, Grace, who was born in 1892, and Ormal, who was born in 1893. They had another child, Garrett, but he isn’t mentioned.

Enough is written that we may glean some information on Edna’s garden and Paul’s farming, the weather, their hopes and the hopes of the community.

By 1900, Paul and Edna were back in Barton County, Missouri, living a couple of households from Ray and Bettie.

Whiterock Oklahoma
April 13 1897

Dear Bettie Noyes,
Liberal MO

Dear Bettie. Your letter and baby’s picture was received last Thursday and I was glad to get them the baby looks so fat and healthy. Grace and Ormal have grown quite a bit since you saw them. They just stay out of doors all the time when it is nice weather.

We had quite a rain Sat. night Sun. morning since it made everything look nice the wind is from the


west today and is cool. I hope it won’t frost because my garden is all up nicely peas are three inches high. The last frost got part of my radishes but they are coming out. I am not having any luck with chickens I have had about one hundred hatch out but they have almost all died.


We have two Sabbath Schools here now Saturday and Sunday we never have gone on Saturday but go once and awhile on Sunday.

Paul is breaking sod now on the school grounds (?) he takes his dinner and stays all day it gets lonesome for the children and I to be alone all day.


The wheat is about three feet high in some places there certainly will be a large wheat crop here this year and the people surely need one if they do any where The prairies are covered with flowers and Grace and Ormal go out on the lin (?) side and picks their hands full I am making them some dresses and I will have to stop and go to work.

Your Sister,

Edna Noyes

Noyes Burials at Liberal City Cemetery

At Find-a-Grave, an individual has placed up memorials for Liberal City Cemetery, including members of the Noyes family. There are (sadly) no photos, just names and inscriptions on the headstones. The person must not have been a member of the family as family members are unlinked. I’ve sent a request for them to be linked, but I’ve not heard back yet.

The family members who are there:

Cora Rachel Greene, daughter of James Allen Noyes and Caroline Atwell. She is currently listed as Cora B. Greene. I’ve asked for a correction on that. Cora married Frank Greene. He’s not listed at Find-a-Grave and I don’t know what happened to him after Cora died.

Emma Viola Noyes Harmon daughter of James Allen Noyes and Caroline Atwell. She married Orrin Ellie Harmon.

Orrin Elliot Harmon, husband of Emma Viola Noyes.

Ray NOYES was born 4 Jan 1874 at Anna, Union, Illinois, the youngest of 6 known children and the 4th son born to James Allen NOYES and Caroline ATWELL. The family record reports he was 10 pounds at birth.

Obituary and family accounts vary as to when the move to the freethought community of Liberal, Barton Co., MO took place, but we have Caroline Atwell NOYES’ partial account of the three week trip which places it beginning August 9 1882, when Ray was eight years of age. He would remain in Liberal all his life, dying there 20 Jan 1941 and the age of 67 years and 16 days.

Ray married Elizabeth Jane “Bettie” BREWER, 24 June 1895, at Liberal. He was 21 and she was 17.

Elizabeth was the 5th of 11 children and the 2nd girl born to David Nathaniel BREWER and Delana FOWLER. She was born 22 July 1877 at Liberal, Barton Co. MO and died 9 July 1863 at Liberal Barton Co. MO. She is buried at the Liberal Cemetery.

Ray and Bettie would have five children between 1895 and 1913.

Ray came to Liberal with his family in 1881. It took three weeks to come from Anna, IL. He inherited the homestead east of Liberal and lived there until he died in 1941 of a heart attack brought on by a bout of asthma.

Papa was a true family patriarch. Whatever said was to be followed even by his grown children. He did not think it was proper for girls to wear short socks. One day he caught me at school with short socks. Was I ever in trouble. Not only did he go tell mother, but he bought 6 pair of silk hose and told her to make sure I wore them. I was not allowed to wear shorts or slacks and my dresses always had to fall below the knee.

SOURCE: Granddaughter Kathleen DORR communicating memories of Pansy, daughter of Ray

He was a small man (5’6″) but seemed like a giant to me. When he spoke, you jumped first and then asked where. He had a glass eye (resulting from a firecracker injury) which he enjoyed taking out and showing to us children.”

SOURCE: Pansy, daughter

They were probably the second most prosperous family in the county. Ray and Bettie continued to raise strawberries. I can remember going to their place and picking them. They also had an orchard and cattle.

SOURCE: Nancy Benton, granddaughter, 27 April 2003

Bettie was born on the farm of her parents 3-1/2 miles northeast of LIBERAL. She married Ray in 1895 and moved to the NOYES homestead east of LIBERAL.

In 1890 Bettie BREWER, age 12, daughter of David and Delanie BREWER who resided 3 1/2 miles NE of LIBERAL became the first person baptized at the Liberal Methodist Church. The church was organized December, 1889.

Mama NOYES, as she was known to her grandchildren, moved to LIBERAL after the death of Papa. She remained there until she could no longer take care of herself, then moved to home of daughter, Pansy. She was a very fashionable lady in her time. She collected pitchers and liked to garden.

She died at the Oak Haven Rest Home in FT. SCOTT, KANSAS, and is buried in the Liberal Cemetery.

SOURCE: Granddaughter Nancy Benton.

The children of Ray and Bettie were:

  1. Pansy Ruth Noyes b. Dec 8, 1895 at Liberal, died Sep 25, 1985 at Liberal. She married Charles Morton Bryant.
  2. Cora Vera Noyes b. Sep 14, 1897 at Liberal, died in September of 1982 at Shreveport, Louisiana. She married (1) John J. Minor, then (2) Will B. Dickson.
  3. Ray James Noyes b. Aug 8, 1903 at Liberal, died in 1969 at Liberal. He married (1) Mildred Snip, then (2) Eula Millard.
  4. Dorothy Nadeen Noyes b. Jan 13, 1908 at Liberal, died Apr 28, 1985 at Carthage, Missouri. She married Lloyd Clinton McKenney.
  5. Mary Louise “Mary Lou” Noyes, b. Nov 15, 1913 at Liberal, died May of 1953 in Kansas City. She married (1) Frank Bevans Jr., then (2) Philip J. Hurt
