Pvt Noshang enlisted into the US Army on January 23, 1872 in Louisville KY. He was described as 5-5, hazel eyes, brown hair & a dark complexion. His civilian occupation was laborer.

On February 10, 1872, he was assigned to Company I, 7th US Cavalry at Shelbyville KY.

At the Battle of the Little Bighorn, Company I, commanded by Capt Myles Keogh, was assigned to Custer's battalion.

Noshang was killed during the battle & his body was never identified. It is likely his unidentified remains were buried where they had been found at Keogh's last position between Calhoun Ridge & Last Stand Hill. In 1881, all known battlefield burials were moved to a mass grave on top of Last Stand Hill.

On July 7, 1877, his father was awarded a pension.
