Harvey (1847-1925) and Edna Wood Noble (1855-1932) were the parents of Edward, Robert and Kathleen. Harvey was born in Verona, NY in 1847 and died in 1925 at the age of 78. His first job as a young man was telegrapher. He moved to Potsdam in 1870 as a telegraph operator for the Rome, Watertown, and Ogdensburg Railroad. Noble moved to Gouverneur in 1873 when he was promoted to station agent. He remained in that position until 1879. In 1876 he married Edna Wood of Potsdam. The Nobles moved to St. Louis until 1880 and returned to Gouverneur, securing employment at the Bank of Gouverneur as a bookkeeper.

​In 1883 Harvey entered the coal business. He also sold wood, cement and feed. He ran his business for more than 40 years. The business was located along the railroad track Just north of the Gouverneur Depot, about where the Farley buildings are located today. He had extensive coal sheds and they caught fire several times over the years. He moved to a new location not far away and constructed the most up to date coal storage plant in this part of the state.

Mr. Noble was one of the group that started the Unitarian Church on Trinity Avenue. Today that building is the Masonic Temple. He was a man of distinct literary tastes, a discriminating reader and an intelligent critic. To him, life was much more than eight business careers. He loved his home and family. It was the center of his universe.
