Birth: Nov. 23, 1904
Douglas County
Missouri, USA
Death: Dec. 7, 1960
Greene County
Missouri, USA

Noah was a Springfield, MO. city worker. Worked hard there and was very happy with his job. He seemed to enjoy the variety.

Paul said he practically hand built Nichols Park in Springfield, Mo. by himself. He thought too that Dickerson Park should have been named after Noah or Essary, as employeed there so long with the city and worked so hard.

Worked so very long and hard all of his life. Took good care of Belle the first wife while she was home bound and dying of cancer.

Working hard at a job to come home and work hard there to take care of all. Not any children of his own with either wife. Ercie's ashes are in the plot with him.

Married just a few weeks to her, and she seemed to be so in love with him. I know he was happy for a few weeks with her and had hopes of a better future.

Yes the name is Noah and has the paticular correct pronouncements, except his family. We all called him "Noeee." Maybe the hillbilly in the family. What ever it was it was the way his name was pronounced by his kin.

Visiting with Noah and Belle was a treat for me as a child. They were both very good to me. He was for the most part a kind and gentle man.

His death cert. listed him as Springfield Park Dept. employee. Male, white, married wife Ercie Essary. Cause of death thrombosis coronary no autopsy was preformed. Time of death was 5 pm. D O A Burge Hospital. Father listed Isham Essary and mother Hester Bozarth.

According to Ercie as I recall he had just sat down to eat, maybe had a few bites, slumped over and he was gone. I think they had been married 3 weeks.

I always knew Belle was older than Noah, just not to much thought given to the fact until seeing it in print at the Census information page. At this time he did handy man jobs and carpentry work.

* The married at 14 would have been answer to first time married age, and that would have been to the first husband. And here as much as I have had contact with Ed I did not know he worked in a shoe shop in Springfield. Guess you learn something you did not know about family when doing genealogy research.
