Noah Jacob Huss was the seventh child of John and Margaret Huss.
Noah was a veteran of the War of 1812 from Maryland. He was a York Volunteer. The British had burned Washington, D.C. in August 1814. This upset the Pennsylvania Dutch farmers. The British were getting too close to their lands and they didn't want their crops burned. Men from Lebanon, Bucks, Dauphin, Schuylkill, Lancaster, Berks, Chester, and York counties gathered. They marched from York, August 29, 1814. Noah joined them on August 30 as they marched toward Baltimore, Maryland. When they arrived they joined the troops at North Point, overlooking Fort McHenry. The infantry defended this place during the battle. Noah served in LtCol Cobean's Battalion of Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry. He was a private in Capt Robert Colvin's Company of Infantry. Noah was in service until September 18, 1814.
The family came to Green Creek in 1824, arriving late in the fall. They came to Ohio over the Zane Trail. Noah purchased 1,200 acres of land at $1.25 an acre, he wrote his own deeds. The family lived in their covered wagon until a log cabin was built in the woods in Section 18, on lands afterwards known as Kernahan farm. This location is on the present State Route 19, north of Green Springs. The early life of this hardy pioneer was beset with hardship and grave responsibilities, clearing the land for cultivation, rescuing the small crops from depredations of the wildlife that resented intrusion, also, the fear of safety for the family from the members of the Seneca Indian Tribe which occupied lands in the vicinity.
Noah and Mary were married May 14, 1811. They had eleven children: Eleanor, John, Christian, Barbara, Noah, James, Elijah, Mary Ann, Margaret Jane, Jacob, and Martha Malvina. Noah died at the age of 53 years, 5 months, and 1 day. His grave is marked by a plaque of the War of 1812.
