Contact: C. W. Jones


I'm looking for information regarding the family of Noble Downer who was born Aug. 7, 1852 in Stockholm, St. Lawrence Co., NY. He died Oct. 13, 1926 in Granton, Clark Co., WI. He was the son of Joel Downer and his wife Eliza Anne. Noble married Melvina Johnson Sep. 20, 1871 in Neillsville, Clark Co., WI. Melvina was born Jan. 19, 1854 in Johnstown, PA and died Sept. 28, 1945 in York, Clark Co., WI. She was buried Oct. 1, 1945 in the Windfall Cemetery in Granton, WI. Her parents were Josiah and Susanna Johnson. Noble and Melvina had a son, Albion Downer who was born about 1874. Their second son, Joel Downer, was born Jan. 30, 1876 in Granton, WI. Their daughter, Gertrude Downer, was born in July of 1881. A fourth child, Neil Downer, was born Sep. 4, 1884 and died in March of 1967. A fifth child, Frank Downer, was born Sep. 30, 1879 and died Dec. of 1965 in Clark Co., WI. A six child, Bessie Downer was born Nov. 28, 1885 in Clark Co., WI and died Oct. 6, 1971 in Neillsville, WI. Their youngest child, Richard Downer, was born Dec. 8, 1877 in Granton, Clark Co., WI and died Sep. 30, 1955 in Mill City, Linn Co., Oregon. He was buried Oct. 3, 1955, in Butler Cemetery, Aumsville, Marion Co., Oregon. I am particularily interested in obtaining a few family photos and some living relatives.
