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:

"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. "
