Aged 83 yrs. Wife of Charles Noble.
Elizabeth Symmes Wing, daughter of Enoch and Mary (Oliver) Wing (John, John, Ananias, John, Rev. John, Matthew), was born May 2, 1802 and married Charles Noble, a son of Deodatus and Betsey Noble of Williamstown, Massachusetts, born July 4, 1797. He graduated at Williams College in 1815 and removed to Monroe, Michigan in 1818, was admitted to practice law there, and was married May 16, 1823. He was for a time a postmaster, a justice of the peace, a register of deeds, a member of the legislative council, surveyor-general of the Northwest and the first judge of the county court. He was also for nearly a quarter of a century an Elder in the Presbyterian church of Monroe and the First Church of Detroit. He was for a number of years cashier of the Bank of the River Raisin, but in 1867 he removed to Detroit and became extensively interested in the sale of pine lands in Michigan. In May 1873, they celebrated their golden wedding at their home in Detroit, when they were greeted by a large circle of relatives and friends. Charles died Dec. 25, 1874. His wife continued to reside in Detroit with her daughter, Mrs. George S. Frost, until June 7, 1885, when she died. She is spoken of as a woman of refined and striking delicacy of feeling, great firmness of character, remarkable loyalty to duty and of exalted Christian principles. Their children were: Frances Louesa, born Aug 20, 1824 and died in infancy; Elisabeth Abby, born July 25, 1826; Charles Wing, born Feb. 13, 1828; Mary Augusta born Aug. 21, 1830 and died in infancy; Ellen Electra, born Aug 7, 1832; Mason Enoch, born Sept. 23, 1835 and died young; and Conway Whittier, born Oct 7, 1842.
