Noah B "Node" Huss was the third child of Christian Huss and Catherine Rathbun. He spent his youth in Green Creek, Ohio.
On October 26, 1861 he enrolled at Fremont in Company F, 72nd Regiment of the Ohio Volunteer Infantry for three years. He was a private. In April 1862 he was in the Battle of Shiloh, or Pittsburgh Landing. He was sent to the General Hospital June 5, 1862 and then to Camp Chase, Ohio. He was in and out of the hospital and AWOL a good bit of the time. His record is quite confusing. Once he walked out of the hospital "with an oath" and went home. He stayed home for awhile and then returned to the army. The tale is told that he escaped death in the Civil War by hanging onto the tail of his commanding officer's horse during a retreat. The horse, as it ran, pulled Node along much faster than he could have gone under his own power.
On December 4, 1862 Node married Rosanna George in Fremont, Ohio. Noah and his sons cleared and drained the land north of Route 163 along Billman Road. This farm had 240 acres, 80 acres east of Billman Road and 160 acres west of Billman Road. Noah built a log cabin on the 160 acres on the west side of Billman Road, about one quarter mile from Route 163, and moved his family there. He planted maple trees along Billman road from Route 163 to his cabin.
Node and Rosanna moved to Lucas County about 1898. They lived on Jerusalem Road just west of the Oscer Huss farm. Node's farm was about three quarters of a mile west of the North Curtice Road on the north side of Jerusalem road.
Soon after they moved to this farm, oil was found. There were twelve oil wells on this farm. One was a gusher.
On March 11, 1920 Noah died at the Ohio Solders' and Sailors' Home in Sandusky, Erie County, Ohio, aged 79 years, 5 months, 24 days.
Noah and Rosanna had children: Geneva, Lester C, Osker B, Herman Sylvester, Freddie, J.B. (Jaby B), Christian Ervin, Eddie, Ralph C, and Normie.
