Henry NOLL was born April 20, 1818, in Dodenau, Grand duchy of Hessen, where he learned the cooper's trade. In 1841 he emigrated and came to America, locating in Quincy, where he conducted a cooper shop for many years, employing a number of hands. Here he married Wilhelmine BUESCHING, born in Hanover in 1826. She died in 1853, and later Henry NOLL married Sophia BUESCHING, a sister of his first wife. Henry NOLL died in the spring of 1902, his second wife departing this life in 1907. William NOLL, eldest son of Henry NOLL, many years ago, went west, where he engaged in the wholesale lumber business and was very successful. He has retired from active business and now resides in Los Angeles, California. Augustus T. NOLL, second son of Henry NOLL, many years ago was engaged in business in Quincy, and departed this life in April, 1898. John NOLL, the third son of Henry NOLL, is city salesman with the Noll-Hauworth Company. W. Guy NOLL, the eldest son of Augustus T. NOLL, is president and treasurer of the Noll-Hauworth Company, Inc., manufacturers of work clothing, and wholesalers. The factory is established in a substantial building, and is doing an encouraging business, with good prospects for the future. W. Guy Noll married Mary Prince, daughter of Col. Edward Prince, a graduate of the University of Heidelberg, who during the Civil war was colonel of the Seventh Illinois Cavalry Regiment, and after the war became an enterprising citizen of Quincy. While he owned the waterworks, he had a large reservoir built out on Alstyne's Prairie, which he named the "Heidelberger Fass," as a reminder of his sojourn as a student in Heidelberg. Leroy NOLL, second son of Augustus T. NOLL, is secretary of the Noll-Hauworth Company.
