    Notes 
    • Decendants of Rev. Wm. Noyes

      The facts connected with the history of this family were left in manuscript by his son, Samuel B. Noyes, and were written between the years 1877 (when commenced) and 1883 (when last record was made).

      The marriage date of John B. Noyes and Sarah Berry is not found, but she is positively identified from the fact that in his manuscript he speaks of going to Westerly, R.I. to visit his uncle, Saxton Berry. He also speaks at the same time of visiting his uncle, Nathan Noyes.

      John B. Noyes and Sarah his wife are buried side by side in the grave-yard at Scott Corners, near the head of Skeneatles Lake. He removed from Rhode Island about December, 1802 and, with their children, Lydia, Samuel B. and Asenath, settled in the town of Brookfield, Madison County, New York, and lived in a log house during the winter of 1805. During 1806 he lived in a house that was built for a corn-house, narrower at the bottom than at the top. It was very small for a family to live in, but had to answer the purpose of a house. Clarinda was born in this house.

      His next move was "over the swamp" in what later became Sandisfield, Oneida County. He had taken a small grist-mill to attend, on shares, in order to enable him to provide for his growing family, in that, then, new country. The mill was propelled by an "overshot wheel", twelve or fourteen feet in diameter. The water came from a small stream, near which the mill stood, and ran through a trough, elevated on a trestle, made of logs, laid up in a square at the bottom and gradually tapering toward the top.

      Church was held in a barn, and the "district school" was two miles away.

      He moved back to Brookfield, about three miles from the mill, and to a point a little south of what later was called North Brookfield, formerly called "Negro City". He lived, as tenant, in a house owned by Mr. Keth, for whom he worked. Lovina was born in this house. He lived there about one year, and then moved to another house one mile distant, where he lived one year and then moved to Pharsalia, Chenango County, twenty miles distant, and lived there two years. In the winter of 1811-12 he moved to Smyrna Hill, two and a half miles from Smyrna Village. This was about the timeof the commencement of the War of 1812. Times were extremely hard, provisions were both scarce and dear, and the amount of perseverance and self-sacrifice required in order to provide for a large family can hardly be realized.

      In March, 1813, he put his household effects aboard a large sleigh, placed his family as comfortably as was possible, among his furniture and left Smyrna Hill for Cayuga County, New York. Two days from that time he arrives at the town of Sempronius (now Niles).

      In the fall of 1813, he moved into a house almost a half mile north of Perryville. In the summer of 1815 he obtained the privilege of building a house on a small piece of land, owned by Daniel Raymond, and which land was cut off from his farm by a deep gully, containing three or four acres. As payment for putting up the house he was to have its use for four years. He lived in this house five years, and Leonard R. was born here. It was rather a romantic spot, surrounded by woods and not far from neighbors. He moved to Venice, New York about 1820 and later to Scott Corners, where he died as above stated.
