William Aquilla Noble (4 May 1841 – 12 December 1880)

Colaborador: mmorri Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Son of William Goodwin Noble and Mary Ann Harper Married Sarah Cornelia Merrill, 6 Apr 1862, Smithfield, Cache, Utah. Children: Ira Elias Noble, Harper Waterhouse Noble, Mary Ann Noble, William Aquilla Noble. Married Sarah Farquharson Smith, 7 Apr 1875, Salt Lake City, Utah. Children: Johan Mariam Noble, George Young Noble. History - William was a tall, slender man, with dark brown hair and blue eyes. William came to America with his parents and six sisters in the ship "William Tapscott" on the 11 May 1860. The family was eight weeks on the water. They landed at New York. They crossed the harbor to Williamsburg where the family resided for two years. It was here the family worked to get enough money, clothing and supplies for their journey westward. William Aquilla immigrated from the East to Utah a year ahead of his parents and family in 1861. When William arrived in Smithfield, Utah in 1861, he lived at the home of Austin Shepherd Merrill in the fort where he received employment. While living in the Merrill home he met their daughter, Sarah Cornelia Merrill, and fell in love with her. William had a good education and was able to fill positions in Smithfield, Utah in the 1860's and 1870's as a school teacher. On Sunday, May 3, 1874, the United Order was formally introduced at the public meeting. The order included a store, tannery, blacksmith shop, threshing machine, etc. It was under the United Order that William Aquilla Noble was called to manage the store, which was called the Co-op Store. In January 1875, a letter was received from Church authorities at Salt Lake proclaiming the failure of the United Order, but it was carried on in part for some time in Smithfield. William Aquilla Noble played an important part in the religious and social life of the people of Smithfield. He was a chorister for many years and he taught singing school. William and some of his sisters, together with others in the community, accompanied President Brigham Young on his tour of Bear Lake and the Gentile Valley. They were asked by President Young to go along with him and sing for the meetings he held. William Aquilla Noble had to go to Salt Lake City for supplies for the Co-op Store. It took several days to make the trip by team and wagon. It stormed most of the time he was on this buying trip and his clothes were wet most of the time, due to the storm, and he caught cold from over exposure. He was stricken with typhoid fever and was ill for some time. He returned to his work as manager of the Co-op Store before he was fully recovered and caught cold. He became ill again and developed appendicitis. The appendix broke causing an internal inflammation and abscesses on the spine. He died at Smithfield at the age of 39 years.

Life timeline of William Aquilla Noble

William Aquilla Noble was born on 4 May 1841
William Aquilla Noble was 18 years old when Petroleum is discovered in Titusville, Pennsylvania leading to the world's first commercially successful oil well. Petroleum is a naturally occurring, yellow-to-black liquid found in geological formations beneath the Earth's surface. It is commonly refined into various types of fuels. Components of petroleum are separated using a technique called fractional distillation, i.e. separation of a liquid mixture into fractions differing in boiling point by means of distillation, typically using a fractionating column.
William Aquilla Noble was 21 years old when U.S. President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation, declaring the freedom of all slaves in Confederate territory by January 1, 1863. Abraham Lincoln was an American statesman and lawyer who served as the 16th President of the United States from March 1861 until his assassination in April 1865. Lincoln led the United States through the American Civil War—its bloodiest war and perhaps its greatest moral, constitutional, and political crisis. In doing so, he preserved the Union, abolished slavery, strengthened the federal government, and modernized the economy.
William Aquilla Noble was 39 years old when Thomas Edison demonstrates incandescent lighting to the public for the first time, in Menlo Park, New Jersey. Thomas Alva Edison was an American inventor and businessman, who has been described as America's greatest inventor. He developed many devices that greatly influenced life around the world, including the phonograph, the motion picture camera, and the long-lasting, practical electric light bulb. Dubbed "The Wizard of Menlo Park", he was one of the first inventors to apply the principles of mass production and large-scale teamwork to the process of invention, and is often credited with the creation of the first industrial research laboratory.
William Aquilla Noble died on 12 Dec 1880 at the age of 39
