New York Obituaries - 1864 - William Curtis Noyes

William Curtis Noyes died at his residence, in this city, yesterday morning, of apoplexy. Mr. Noyes was born in Schodach, Rensselaer County, N.Y., Aug 19, 1805. He commenced the study of law when fourteen years of age, in the office of Samuel B. Ludlow, esq., then of Albany. In 1823 he became a student in the office of the late Hon. Henry Storrs, and in 1827, completed his studies, and was admitted to the bar. He commenced his professional life in Rome, where he was connected in business, first with the late Wheeler Barnes, esq., and subsequently with Hon. Henry A. Foster. In 1834 he removed to Utica, and formed a partnership with William Tracy, esq. Since 1838 he has been actively engaged in the practice of law in this city. The commanding position Mr. Noyes has for many years held at the bar in this state, his high social position and his unsullied character, and his indomitable perseverance in the prosecution of the business of his profession, will make his loss deeply felt by this community.
