|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Noel Cemetery - Located in Section 14, Township 21 North, Range 33 West, on Highway H, on the East side of Noel.
Noel Cemetery is located on land originally owned by Clark WALLACE, and later owned by Thomas A. MARSHALL, who established a store and the Noel Post Office. Mr. Marshall named the town in honor of Willis Bridges NOEL, original owner of the land the town was established on.
The cemetery, originally known as the Marshall Cemetery, is the old front section, located directly to the left as you enter the gate to the Noel Cemetery. It is this section which was donated to the city by Thomas Marshall and is now known as Marshal Section of Noel Cemetery.
The graves of the Marshall family are gathered around the large monument to Thomas A. Marshall and his wife, Mary Jane (Kirk) MARSHALL, and the tall, square monument to left of his mother, Sarah A. MARSHALL. Additional land for the cemetery was purchased in 1948 and 1986.
