The Evening Star Thursday, February 24, 1887
Death Of Henry O. Noyes
An Honorable and Useful Life
Mr. Henry O. Noyes, one of the reportorial staff of The Evening Star, died at half past seven o'clock last evening at the residence of his son-in-law, Mr. Eugene Van Vleck, Linden, Montgomery County, Maryland. Mr. Noyes' health had been failing for many months and for several days he had been confined to his house. His death, however, came unexpectedly, as he appeared yesterday to be recovering his strength. The immediate cause of death was paralysis of the heart, from which, owing to his enfeebled condition, he could not rally.

Mr. Noyes was born in Minot, Maine, February 21, 1827 and was therefore about 60 years old. He came to this city when a young man and was engaged at different times in mercantile pursuits and in the United States Revenue Service. About twenty years ago he entered the employment of The Evening Star and up to last Friday, when he was compelled by illness to desist from work, he rendered the paper zealous and intelligent service. His work was characterized always by fidelity and conscientiousness. In his later years, when his health was broken, he could not be induced to leave his post and seek much needed recreation. During his many years of newspaper service he became thoroughly identified with The Evening Star and had a very large acquaintance in the city. Few men ever enjoyed to the same degree the confidence and respect of those with whom his business brought him in contact. He had been ever since the establishment of the present form of government, in charge of the news service of The Star at the District government buildings and had discharged his duties there not only with credit to himself and the journal which he served so faithfully, but in such a manner also as gained for him the personal esteem of all the officials of the District government, who imposed implicit confidence in him and often took counsel of his long experience. He was a Mason of long standing, a member of Pentalpha Lodge No. 23, F.A.A.M., Columbia R.A. Chapter No. 1 and Columbia Commandery No. 2, K.T. He was for many years a member of the Board of Managers of the Masonic Relief Association. His amiable wife, who was a Miss Colisson, a niece of Mr. Edward Drew, died about three years ago and he never recovered from the shock that this affliction gave him. He leaves five children – two sons and three daughters. The oldest daughter is the wife of Mr. Julian C. Dowell, of the Patent Office and the second daughter is the wife of Mr. Eugene A. Van Vleck, of the Pension Office. He was a cousin of Mr. C.S. Noyes and a brother of the late S.V. Noyes. In amiability and integrity of character and fidelity to friends and to all his obligations in life he strongly resembled his lamented brother.

The funeral will take place at 1 o'clock PM tomorrow from the residence of Mr. Eugene A. Van Vleck, Linden Station, Metropolitan Road and the interment will be at Glenwood Cemetery at 3:30PM. The 12:30 train from Washington on the Metropolitan Road will reach Linden in season for the funeral.

A contributor has sent two suggestions for his parents:
First suggestion for parents:
Nicholas Noyes
Susan S Noyes
Second suggestion for parents with no comment as to whether previously sent links were incorrect:
Deacon Peter Noyes
Cynthia Verrill Noyes

Since his obituary states his brother is S. [Samuel] V. [Verrill] Noyes it appears that the second set of parents are the correct parents. The first set of parents appear to be his grandparents.
