Birth: Dec. 28, 1835
Death: Jul. 14, 1900

Noel and Elizabeth had fourteen children.

Daily Herald Newsper obituary.
The citizens of the back bay neighborhood were sadly shocked yesterday morning at the announcement that Mr. Noel Richards, who resided five miles north of back bay had committed suicide. The terrible deed was supposed to have been committed shortly after daylight, but the exact time is unknown/ from what is told it appears that Mr. Richards arose early in the morning and went to his stable where he secured a plow line and
threw it over one of the rafters, placed the other about his neck and thus went to his death.
The body was discovered by a little boy who lived on the property who went to the stable shortly after sunrise and saw the startling sight of the deceased's body dangling in the air. The alarm was immediately given and the body cut down as soon a possible, but life was then wholly extent. For some days, Mr. Richard had been talking of his financial troubles which his friends believed to be more imaginary than real, as he appeared to be to be in fairly good cirumstancers it is thought these imagings preyed upon his mind unil he beame mentally unbalaced and while under a fit of temporary aberration he commited the rash act. The deceased leaves a wife and several children besides a host of relatives in his neighborhood as well as in Biloxi. He was about 65 year5s of age and had long resided where he ended his life. He was an honest, industrious, hard working man, respeted and estimed by all who knew him. He was exempy in all respects an would have had to been the last person who would have committed the awful act of self-Murder. Of course the sympathy of of everybody in this sectionof the county will go out to the bereaved widow and the sorrowing children of the unfortunate gentleman.
The remains will be interred in Biloxi today and all the friends and acquaintances of the family are respectufully invited to be present.
