WILLIAM A. NOBLE, business man of Freeport, Armstrong county, was born Oct. 11, 1864, in Sharpsburg, Pa., son of Louis Henry Noble and the oldest of his twelve children.

Louis Henry Noble learned the carpenter's trade early in life, following it until his retirement several years ago. He is now living in Sharpsburg, and is over seventy-one years old. His wife is aged over sixty-seven years. They are consistent members of the Roman Catholic Church.

William A. Noble attended the common schools until he was fifteen years old, when he began working as a packer in the glass works of Tibby Brothers, in his native city. Later he was a packer in a furniture house, and then for eight years he and his father conducted a feed business in Sharpsburg, under the firm name of L.H. Noble & Son. In 1900 this connection was severed, and Mr. Noble established himself at Freeport, where he handles hay, straw, grain, feed, and salt, both wholesale and retail. During the time he has been connected with the business interests of Freeport Mr. Noble has proved himself a man worthy of confidence, and has built up a large trade. He is a Democrat politically, although his business cares have kept him from active participation in public affairs. His religious connections are with the Catholic Church, of which he has been a member since childhood.
