Lincoln Sentinel, Nov. 13, 1913
---Mrs. Thomas S. NOON died at the home of her son, William, near Vesper, Sunday, Nov. 9, 1913, at the age of 76.
Ellen McMANAMON was born in County Mayo, Ireland, in 1837 and came to America with her parents at the age of 12 years settling in New Albany, Ind. She was united in marriage to Thomas S. NOON in December 1853. To this union were born 13 children, only two survive their mother, William NOON and Mrs. Lizzie SMITH.
Ellen NOON came to Kansas with her husband in 1866 and settled temporarily at Ft. Riley. There she volunteered to nurse the soldiers who had cholera. From Ft. Riley they moved to Ft. Harker, now Kanopolis. Then they came to Lincoln county ahd homesteaded four miles west of Lincoln Center where she lived until the end came. She enjoyed relating their experiences of the indian raids. In 1869 she made her escape on horseback over the Saline river at Nicholas Whalen crossing carrying her baby on her shoulder. The Indians destroyed property and massacred those who failed to escape. She was a kind, loving mother and a good kind neighbor, always willing to assist in sickness and trouble.
The funeral services were conducted by Rev. Father FITZGERALD and the interment was made in the Catholic cemetery south of Lincoln.

NOON --- Thomas NOON
Lincoln Sentinel, April 14, 1898
--- James A. SMITH furnishes us the following data concerning the life and death of a pioneer citizen of Lincoln county:
Thomas NOON died at No. 1912 Arapahoe street, Denver, Colo., the 5th inst. and was buried on the 7th. He was born in Mayo County, Ireland, in 1831, came to America in 1854, landing at New Orleans. After a short residence in New Orleans he removed to New Albany, Ind., where lived for 12 years, being engaged in steamboating on the Ohio and Mississippi rivers a greater part of that time. He afterwards removed to Kansas and worked for the U.S. government at Forts Leavenworth, Riley and Harker for about three years, during which time he filed papers on the land four miles west of Lincoln, where he resided till the middle of last February, continuously, except when driven away by the Indians when they made their several raids through this country. He was here during the last Indian raid in this county when there were 13 persons killed.

Mr. Noon was married to Miss Ellen McMAHON at New Albany, Ind. Ten children were born to them, only three of whom, with their mother, survive the father. These children are Mary, who is married and lives in Denver, Lizzie, who is married to Henry A. SMITH and lives three miles west of this city, and William, unmarried and resident unknown.

He leaves no near relatives to mourn his loss except his widow, Mrs. Ellen NOON, and the three children above-mentioned, and his brother Patrick, who is two years his senior. The brothers lived close neighbors for the last 25 or 30 years. The surviving relatives have the sympathy of the people of the whole community.
