    Henrietta was probably named after her mother. .

    Letter from Richard (Jr.'s son, John Richardson Taylor outlines where the Noble family was in 1884
    "Handwritten eight page letter from John Richardson Taylor to Susie and Halldor Briem. Photographed by Roy's cousin Jóhanna Skúladóttir.
    Do not have envelope image - Addresses. [Note from Roy Einar Christopherson who transcribed this.: Roy believes this is the son of Richard Taylor (Jr.), grandson of Richard Taylor (Sr) of Barbados.
    While it does not appear too important to us, it certainly was for the time. Letters like this built parts of Canada and US by word of mouth on local situations.
    Roy noticed Jane Hearn moved there to FL, then moved back within months due to an outbreak of Yellow fever, which many in the town left abruptly!
    We now know Willie resided in Carberry, along with this John. John Hearn died about 1883-1884 during John's previous visit. Nothing is known about him.
    Note top right of letter: Direct to me here as I have signed because otherwise it will get into other hands. Richard was my fathers name you know

    St. Augustine. Florida. United States 25th May 1884
    My dear Susan
    Since writing to you from Toronto we have come to this place and like it so very much that we would gladly buy a home if the means of doing so were at hand. As some account of our journey will interest you both, I will try to give some account of it. I told you of our trip from Carberry to Toronto? [stopping] by the way at Millwaukee for two-days. And that when we reached Toronto on 15th April we found John Hearn
    2 laying dead. The trip was somewhat delayed of course, and we went to visit Mrs. Noble, your Aunt Henrietta3 at Lucknow [ONT], where she has lately moved from Tara. We were very glad to see her again and her son Frank 4 & the two daughters Frances5 who is a fine well proportioned woman, married to a very nice gentlemanly person, Frank Watt 6, who is keeping a dry good store there in partnership with Frank Noble 7. Fanny 8 has a nice healthy baby girl 9, 4 months old just beginning her teething. The youngest girl Hetta 10 is 16, very girlish & still at school but well advanced, & intended to to be a teacher. Frank is the oldest of the three, tall and healthy and seems a very nice young man, well posted in the [business] of a general store. They are [united], loving Christian family. Mr. Noble 11 has been away from them for a year or so, living West in Montana and the eldest son George 12 is in Washington territory. They are different from the rest of the family. We spent a few days at Lucknow. and returned to Toronto at the end of the month.ll would pay well and provide work for the settlers. September or October would be the best time for immigrants to come. As the winter gardening then begins, they can soon provide themselves with food and have enough to sell besides. The prices are very high for all vegetables in January to ship to New York, and people raise great quantities of them on that account. I cannot write longer, so will say a few words about ourselves now, as I have to write Jane. It takes so long for letter to reach them from here, 9 or 10 days, although only 4 to Winnipeg. We stopped at a hotel in Jacksonville paying 75[cents] a day for a room. Mr. & Mrs. Hearn the same for another. We took our meals at the restaurant paying accordingly to what we ordered. 10[?cents] for a cup of tea or coffee and so on for bread and for [newt line was cut from photograph copy] $1.75 each [?polay] for 2 days until we found a furnished house to let for $25.00 pmonth. Our board costs us 1.75 each p week now. We keep our own house and make out very well so far, although everything is scarce and dear at this old fashioned town, this being the dull time of the year. Some 40,000 people who spent the winter here for health have returned north until next winter.
    ... We have long for a place of our own to live at, but nothing can be done until we sell out at Carberry, and Willy sells his farm. He has been offered $1400.00, but hopes to get 2000.00. [?Mr. Hearn] has $2000.00 -- of a friends to invest here, but he must have some of his boys with him as the old folks cannot manage by themselves. The Lord I trust will guide us in these little things. Your Aunt has not sold the organ, or anything else. We have not heard from Carberry since we arrived here on 7th May. Your Aunt sends best love but cannot write at this time.
    Love to you both [?L J zunai?]
    Your [?very] affectionately John Richardson Taylor

    After the big hurricane in Barbados that killed Richard Taylor (Sr) son George, and maimed Frances 'Aunt Fanny' for life in 1831, the Enmore Plantation on Barbados went to Richard (Sr)s eldest son, Richard (Jr.). He put it into trust and died during an operation. Roy has yet to find any of their records, or children on Trinidad & Tobago, West Indies. Obviously this is not an introductory letter, and John knows Susie well. The additional note of John's fathers name is Richard is interesting. Obviously there was more than one John Taylor in FL and he asks his middle name be used in the address. He states his fathers name WAS Richard. Possible this could be a relationship to Richard (Sr) siblings, which none are known at this time. 2 John Hearn - No John Hearn is known of. Check England Immigrant Patriarch-His name is William Hearn. There is an Alfred John Hearn to dies in 1960's. 3 Henrietta TAYLOR Noble, b. 1825, sister to William Stewart and John Taylor. She married Edward A. Noble. She is said to have been very deaf. The family story of Henrietta Taylor's Presbyterian husband, the rev. Edward A, Noble was said to have run off. Obviously he was known to be in Montana on the daughters 15th year. He is referred to as "my dear husband" in another letter. So this might prove story false.]
    4 Francis R. Noble, b. 1858, Ontario, son of Edward A. Noble and Henrietta TAYLOR Noble.He married Harriet Buggin 1892 at Tara, Bruce, Ontario. Harriet's parents were Rev. George Buggin who married them and Harriet Buggin.
    5 Frances E. Noble, b. 1856, Ontario, dau. of Edward A. Noble and Henrietta TAYLOR Noble
    6 Frank Miller Watt married Frances Elizabeth Noble in 1883 Tara, Ontario, Canada. He was born 1852 in Scotland, profession: Fish Preserver. His parents were Frances Watt & Ann Watt. Frank & Frances had 6 children, 1. Annie M WATT, born 1883, 2. Robert N. WATT, 1885, 3. Cora T. WATT, 1888, 4. Jessie L. WATT, 1890, 5. Frank W. WATT, 1894, 6. Ernest R. WATT, 1897. 1900 they moved out to Edmonton.
    7 Not sure which one this is?
    8 TAYLOR Moore, Frances 'Fanny' b. 1826 Barbados d. 1909 Grantwood NJ, married in 1862 in Kingston, ONT to William James Moore.
    9 May Maud Moore married James T Ralph in 1890 at Euphemia, Lambton, Ontario, Canada.
    10 Henrietta 'Etta or Hetta' Noble. Nothing is known about her
    11 Edward A. Noble
    12 Unknown person
    13 This could be Wm S. Taylor's son, or William Hearn, husband of Jane TAYLOR Hearn (1) . William 'Willie' Henry Taylor b. 1868 or 1870, died 1941 was the son of Wm. S. Taylor and his 2nd wife; Eliza Jane McNeil. Carrie Taylor had two step-brothers, and one step-sister. Willie possibly married Margaret C blank living in Maury, King, Washington, United States in 1920? Worked on his father Wm S Taylor's farm, Taylor Hill north of Baldur, then supposedly left west with his brother to operate a Lighthouse.
    14 Jane TAYLOR Hearn (1) b. 1828 on Barbados, Died 1903 in Toronto, ONT. Sister to Wm S. & John Taylor. 15 San Sebastian River, a tidal channel which flows into Matanzas Bay [] in Florida, US 16 Fridjon Fredericksson at Gimli

    Looks like this was in Huron County, Canada.
    Bridget J. Dalton (Mrs . Wendell ) had been succeeded as organist by Henrietta Noble, who, in turn, was replace d by Elizabeth Martin in 1911 . At the death of Miss Noble, Father McCormack, who with Morgan Dalton was executor of the will, suggested that her property be acquired by the Separate School Board for a convent. The trustees at the time were Michael Dean, Edward Foley, and Morgan Dalton, al l of whom acquiesced to the wish of their pastor. The site was just a few yards north of the school

    Lesla [Leila] A. NOBLE _____

    Born 1901
    Could this be her?
    A young American woman, aged 19 years. Miss Leila A. Noble, of Rome, Ga., has distinguished herself by descending to the lowest depths of the Dolcoath tin mine In Cornwall, England,
    the reached a depth of 2310 feet, and in ascending the had to climb np perpendicular ladders of 1200 rounds, reaching nearly twice as high as the top of St. Paul's.
    The trip up and down occupied four hours and a half, and the fair adventuress brought up a large lump of tin ore, dug with her own bands, as a trophy
    Born 1901, this could not be her!
