===========================================

From husband's biographical sketch:

The lady who now bears the name of Mrs. Noel, was in her maidenhood Elizabeth J. Cole, daughter of John and Susanna (Duke) Cole, the former a native of North Carolina and the latter of South Carolina. Her mother's people were of English origin, but her father was of Scotch descent, and in the war of 1812 he served as a drummer boy. He afterward became a Baptist minister and devoted his life to his fellow men. Mrs. Noel was born in Sangamon county, Illinois, August 14, 1829, and by her marriage became the mother of three children: Emma Belle, wife of C. F. McCoy; Carrie S., who died in childhood; and Marcella J., wife of W. T. Buck.

==============================

From another sketch of her husband Cole Noel:

Past and Present of Dallas County, Iowa - 1907

http://books.google.com/books?output=text&id=pFE0AQAAMAAJ&j...

"On the 30th of May, 1858, in Adel, was celebrated the marriage of Cole Noel and Miss Elizabeth Cole, who was born in Decatur, Illinois, August 14, 1829, her parents being John and Susan (Duke) Cole. Her father was born in North Carolina, August 1, 1796, and died July 26, 1831. His wife was born April 12, 1799, in South‘ Carolina, and died in Des Moines, December 30, 1866. They were married in Green county, Kentucky, August 1, 1816. Mr. Cole engaged in the manufacture of pewterware and was also a minister of the Baptist church while living in Kentucky. He remained a resident of that state until 1824, when he removed to Indiana ‘and later he took up his abode in Illinois, where he died. He served as a drummer boy in the war of 1812 and‘ he gave his political allegiance to the democracy. Unto him and his wife were born six children but Mrs. Noel is the only one now living. "

A History of Early Des Moines By Tacitus Hussey

pages 36 - 37

W. W. MOORE
W. W. Moore, "Billy." Raccoon Row,
came here in the early days of 1848 and
was ])r()l)a1)ly one of the l)est known men
in the city. He was an employee at first but
soon acquired capital "to go it alone." He was
a jolly, happy man and had a faculty of making
friends with every one he met. Business
of all kinds was done on Second Street for several years,
until some of the bolder merchants
seemed inclined to seek business locations further
to the west. One of these enterprising
merchants was Mr. Moore, who built a store
on Walnut Street between Third and Fourth
and began business in a larger way. Mr.
Moore was an advertiser and did some of it in
rhyme, as some of the columns of our old
papers plainly show. Here is a little verse
some of the country boys and girls used to re-
cite at school :

"Sound the trumpet, beat the drum ;
From housetop and from steeple ;
For Billy Moore is now on hand ;
And bound to please the people."

These little quips which appeared at ten
cents a line always brought customers and
shekels. His old Opera House still stands, at
the time of this record, 1919.

. . .

pages 51-52
"The following is a list of dwellers in the
officers' and soldiers' cabins whose history or
a sketch could not be written because of a lack
of data. Their names were:
...
Isaac Cole, Raccoon Row.
...
L. D. Winchester, father-in-law of A\'. W. Moore, Des Moines Row. "
[I think L.D. may have been Moore's BROTHER-in-Law, not Father-in-Law - CDB]
. . .

"Mrs. William Winchester Moore, "

. . .

First brick building, on court avenue, site
now occupied by the Randolph Hotel, by L. D.
Winchester in 1849. Billy Moore, one of our
best known and loved early merchants, was
married in the Winchester residence in the
long ago. Mr. Moore died May 5, 1918, the
oldest settler in the city.

. . .

page 74

"The first three men who held a "Silver Anniversary" on December 25, 1875, were Billy Moore, Lampson P. Sherman and Dr. W. H. Ward. The Old Settlers' Association gave each one of these happy couples a silver service
set; and the three pioneer judges, Casady, Williamson and Phillips, made the presentation speeches."

. . .

page 76

"The first town lot was traded for a suit of
clothes in May, 1848. Uncle "Billy" Moore
had just arrived to take a position in B.
F. Allen's dry goods store. His trunk had
been delayed, but it finally came one Sun-
day morning. In opening it he displayed
his worldly goods in a reckless manner.
Meantime, a dapper little fellow, named
Sprague, came into the store. "

Second, is Billy Moore's Hoosier Store, after-
wards occupied by R. W. Sypher, dry goods,

"W. W. Moore, Dr. W. H. Ward and Lamp. P. Sherman, celebrated their silver weddings at the house of Mr. Moore, Dec. 25, 1876. Mr. Moore was married by Rev. J. A. Nash; Dr. Ward was married by Rev. Sanford Haines; Mr. Sherman was married by Rev. Father Bird. Mr. Nash was the one of the three clergymen present, the others being deceased. On this occasion the old settlers presented the celebrants with a set of silverware each, Judge W. W. Williamson making the presentation to Mr. Sherman and wife; Judge William Phillips to Mr. Moore and wife; and Judge P. M. Casady to Dr. Ward and wife. Rev. Mr. Nash responded on behalf of the recipients for the splendid testimonials of esteem and good will of the old pioneers."

SILVER WEDDINGS.

"We have just space enough at the close of this volume, to state that the silver weddings of W. W. Moore, Dr. W. H. Ward, and L. P. Sherman, were celebrated at the residence of the first named gentleman, Tuesday evening, November25, 1876. Dr. Ward'came to this part of the country in 1848, and Was united to Miss Allie Yount, on North river, in Warren county. He practiced medicine many years at Carlisle, before removing to Des Moines. Rev. Sanford Hoines solemnized the marriage.

W. W. Moore and Mary Ann Winchester were wedded at the old Winchester residence in Des Moines, which occupied the site of the Valley Bank. Rev. J. A. Nash officiated at the ceremony. Mr. Moore is the veteran merchant, having been longer in that business in Des Moines than any of his present cotemporaries.

Mr. Sherman was united in this place to Miss Susan R. Lawson, "Rev. Thompson Bird officiating. The ceremony took place at the residence of James Hall, corner of Court Avenue and First street. Mr. Sherman was the pioneer editor; Dr. Ward was the pioneer physician, and Mr. Moore was the pioneer merchant.

The old settlers' gifts, at this rare celebration, consisted of a silver set donated to each couple; the three sets being worth $500.00. The recipients of these fine gifts were unprepared by any previous intimation for their reception. Judge W. W. Williamson, by invitation, addressed Mr. Sherman and his lady, Judge Phillips, also by invitation, addressed Mr. Moore and his lady; and Judge Casady was called out to address Dr. Ward and his wife, to which he gracefully responded. Messrs Thomas Hatton, Jr., J. P. Sharman, and Misses Jennie Nash, and Carrie Laird, with Professor Proctor at the organ, furnished the choicest music for the occasion. Rev. J. A. Nash, in. behalf of the principals, acknowledged the reception of the silver sets from the Old Settlers.
