... We are to have a new School House and last Tuesday evening the committee met and received proposals for building the same. Mr. Levi Noble, being the lowest bidder, was the lucky man. Mr. Eugene Woodruff drew up the plans and specifications. It is to be a two story building...

CALLED TO THE FATHERS. In the Passing of Levi W. Noble the Adirondacks Loses One of Its Finest Citizens.

On Sunday last the Adirondacks lost, in the death of Levi W. Noble, of Bloomingdale, one of its finest and best-known citizens. He was a prince in all that makes up true manhood, his integrity and Christian character shining brightly before all men. Always quiet, thoughtful and fair in all his judgments, he possessed beneath his sturdy manhood a heart as sympathetic as a child's.

Mr. Noble was one of the landmarks of that portion of the town of Franklin near the St. Armand line and resided for many years on the Paul Smith's road only a short distance from Bloomingdale village, where he followed farming. He was a man of plain words, of simple life and habits but in all that makes the man he was a true nobleman. Years ago he took much interest in education in his community and was a member of the Bloomingdale school board. After the death of his wife who was a noble woman he moved to the village and resided with his son, the late Dr. Noble and his daughter Mrs. Harriet Gillespie. After the death of the former he made his home with his daughter and in recent years had been grealty [sic] afflicted with rheumatism and the feebleness of advanced years. He was 86 years of age. Both his sons, Fortis and Freedom preceded him to the Great Beyond, but his daughters, Mrs. Gillespie and Mrs. Carrie Church of Millburn, Mass., and several grandchildren, survive to cherish his memory. He has been translated in the fullness of his years to "the city not made with hands, eternal in the heavens." The funeral takes place from his late home in Bloomingdale this Wednesday afternoon.
