I am not a NOON researcher, but from a 1915 history of Shelby Co., Iowa, there is a bio for EDWARD A. NOON, son of EDWARD and MARY (ANTIL) NOON, born in Leicestershire, England, Feb 16, 1845.His parents both were born in England in 1807.His father was a weaver by trade.Edward Noon Sr. came to America with his family in 1846 and first landed in Brooklyn, NY, where he found employment as a weaver for the first five years.Then he went to Trenton, NJ, for two years, and later to Bristol, Connecticut.They then went to Buffalo, NY, and finally to Watertown, Wisconsin, in 1854, by steamer, following the Great Lakes to the later place.At Watertown, Wisconsin, EDWARD A. NOON SR. bought an ox-team and a two-wheel cart and drove from Watertown to Madison, Wisconsin.Here he bought some timber land, but struggled to make a living, and returned to Massachusetts where he worked as a weaver for the next five years.He returned to Wisconsin again to farm until his death in 1862.His wife died in 1848, leaving Edward Sr. with six children, all of whom are deceased, except Edward A. Noon Jr.The bio goes on to tell about Edward A. Noon Jr. and his life.He married November 3, 1866, to HANNAH WHITE and had 9 children.If anyone wants the remaining info, just e-mail me.Happy to help at no charge.
