As quoted from James Cox Brady and his ancestry, by Louis Effingham De Forest, New York: De Forest Publishing Co., 1933 p. 340-343: "Mark Noble was born at Westfield, Massachusetts, in or about 1670. He married, in 1698, Mercy Marshall, who died May 12, 1733. She is called Mary in the marriage record, but in her father's will, Mercy. On December 23, 1703, she joined the Westfield church. Noble was a farmer, and in August, 1703, it was voted by the town 'that ye Selectmen with John Noble should agree with ye Ingones for the above land which is not yett purchased as above' for the town. He was also appointed to join with the selectmen to apportion the payment for the purchase of land from the Indians among the inhabitants. In 1718 he was appointed surveyor for the 'town, county and county roads,' and in 1720 was constable. He was chosen in December, 1722, to serve on a committee 'chosen to dignifie the seats in the meeting house, which dignification the townsmen confirmed by a voat.' He served as tithingman in March, 1725. On April 8, 1741, his will was made, in which he left his property to his sons, John and Noah. He died at Westfield, April 16, 1741, at the age of about seventy-one."
Mark Nobel's life is discussed beginning on page 506 of History and Genealogy of the Family of Thomas Noble of Westfield, Massachusetts with Genealogical Notes of Other Families By The Name Of Noble, compiled by Lucius M. Boltwood, Hartford, Conn. Press of the Case, Lockwood & Brainard Company, 1878. Much of the information quoted from James Cox Brady's document above is discussed in Boltwood's book. Additional information includes the following: When Mark executed a will or deed, giving his property to his sons, John and Noah, "he added his mark, in a tremulous hand, being evidently too feeble to sign his name, as he had done to a deed in 1732. This deed or will which was in existence in 1852, seems never to have been recorded or proved, and is not now to be found."
Mark and Mercy Noble's children included Noah, Mary, Abigail, John (#261), Miriam, and Noah.
