Private Noah W. Laubach first married Joanna Sharp. She was born at Apple Creek, Ohio. Noah W. Laubach and Joanna Sharp Laubach (1851-1879) had a child Clara M. Laubach (1872-1934). Clara M. Laubach married William Chalmers Ralston (1867-1950). William Chalmers Ralston was the Assistant Attorney General for the State of Kansas and a law professor. They had a son Harry Laubach Ralston (1903-1924). Noah W. Laubach next married Candace Elah Sawyer on June 7, 1881 in Osage City, Osage County, Ohio. Candace (Sawyer) Laubach was born in Saint Joseph, Ohio on May 15, 1854. She was the daughter of William Bassett Sawyer and Jane Elizabeth (Comstock) Sawyer. Candace Laubach worked as a schoolteacher and she and her husband were prominent members of the Presbyterian Church. Noah W. Laubach was a ruling elder in the Synod of Kansas Presbyterian Church. They resided at 1300 Western Ave. in Topeka, Kansas. Noah W. Laubach was the son of Charles and Hester (Bechtel) Laubach. He was the grandson of Frederick and Catharine (Jacoby) Laubach. He was the great grandson of Lt. Johann Friederich Laubach, an officer in the American Revolution and Catharine (Bitting) Laubach. He was the great-great grandson of Capt.

He was the third great grandson of Sgt. Reinhardt Laubach, who served with the German Ysenburg Regiment during the occupation of Landau and Anna Elisabeth Laubach. Noah Laubach was a Civil War Veteran. He enlisted as a Private in Co. I, 102nd OVI, on 5 August 1862 at the age of 18. He was discharged at Bowling Green, KY, on 25 November 1862 with a Surgeon's Certificate of Disability. The 102nd. Ohio Vol., Inf. was organized in Mansfield, Ohio. The regiment was to serve for three years. On Sept. 4, 1862, they were moved by rail to Covington, Kentucky in defense of that city. They were moved again to Louisville, Ky. in defense of that city. On Oct. 5, 1862, they were ordered to pursue Confederate General Braxton Bragg's army. Shortly thereafter, they moved to Bowling Green, Ky. to guard the railway to Nashville, Tenn. The 102nd.

A total of 1,800 were lost in all. Some 200 more than the Titanic. It was the greatest maritime disaster in American history.
