Noah served 18 months during the Revolutionary War. On February 13, 1778, he was hired for the Town of Richmond, Cheshire County, New Hampshire for 2 years. During that time, he served as a Private in the 8th Company, 1st New Hampshire Regiment of the Continental Line commanded by Colonel Joseph Cilley. He was not returned on the Rolls to January 1, 1781 for the men serving in the Regiment in 1780.

Noah moved from New Hampshire to near the depot at the village, Town of Ferrisburgh, Addison County, Vermont, in 1780. He soon after removed to road thirty-seven, where he purchased 40 acres. He first came to Ferrisburgh to hunt and trap.
