NOEL, Willis
At three o'clock yesterday afternoon Willis Noel, aged 77, died at a local hospital after an illness of ten days with pneumonia.
Mr. Willis was for many years a conspicuous figure in Huntington. He was a native West Virginia. He came to Huntington in 1888, and had resided here continuously until the time of his death. He reared a large family all of whom have become useful citizens.
When quite a young man he entered the Union Army and fought bravely until the close of hostilities. During his more vigorous years he was active in Republican politics. He served as county coroner for a number of years.
He was a member of Bailey Post, Grand Army of the Republic, and though funeral announcements await the arrival of some of his children from a distance, it is probable that his old comrades in arms will participate in the funeral rites.
He is survived by a sister, Mrs. Robert Curry, of St. Albans, and by the following children: W. W. Noel, of Lincoln county; W.R. Noel, of Montgomery; R. E. Noel of Toronto, O.; Willis Noel, Jr.; James M. Noel, Otto Noel and Lester Noel, sons; Mrs. C. H. Petit, Mrs. E. M. Simms, of Huntington, and Mrs. S. J. Shelton, of Lincoln county, daughters.
Mr. Noel was a man of quiet, but kindly disposition, and during his long life in Huntington and vicinity won a large following of friends. -The Herald-Dispatch, Thursday Morning, January 31, 1918  Civil War Index
