Civil War Veteran, With Excellent Record, Passes Away at Milwaukee Soldiers' Home.

Warren S. Noble, a Joliet veteran of the Civil war, died at the National Soldiers' Home in Milwaukee yesterday, aged 73 years. He leaves a family of seven children, all residing in Joliet, also three brothers, James R., of Leavenworth, Kas., Edward H., of Leadville, Colo., and Charles A., of Joliet, and one sister, Mrs. L. W. Slauson of Denver. The funeral will be Friday at 2:30 o'clock from the home of his son, C. H. Noble, 452 South Chicago street, under the auspices of Bartleson Post of the Grand Army of the Republic, of which he was a member.

Born in Wilmington

Warren S. Noble was reared in the town of Wilmington and in the summer of 1862 enlisted in Capt. M. N. M. Stewart's company which was made Company A of the One Hundredth Illinois infantry, the Will county regiment. He was with the regiment in all of the battles up to Chickamauga, in September, 1863, where he was taken prisoner.

He spent eighteen months in confederate prisons, being in Libby prison at Richmond, Danville, Florence and Andersonville.

Gets Smallpox

During his confinement he suffered from the smallpox, and when he was released from Andersonville he had to be carried out of the stockade on a stretcher. He was taken to Savannah and thence by sea to Baltimore whence he was sent home as soon as he was able to travel.

Mr. Noble served in the capacity of constable for several years and in 1870 was elected sheriff of Will county, leaving the office with an excellent record for efficiency. His army comrades speak of him as one of the best of soldiers, always ready to do his duty to the best of his ability.
