Notes for Noah James Monroe: It was thought that he lived at the home of his grandparents, Mark and Nancy Monroe with his mother, Cirenia Monroe until she married Charles O. Warwick. The first 20 years of Noah and Martha's marriage were spent near Maynardsville, Tenn. and this is where their children were born. About 1881 when Serepta, their youngest child was 2, Noah and family moved by covered wagon to Holstien, Nebraska. J. Orville, the oldest child, stayed in Tenn. Their first home was a farm 5 miles south of town. Later they moved to a farm 1 mile south of town where they lived until moving into Holstien. After Noah died in 1918, Martha lived with her Daughter, Belle, for a short time, then with her daughter, Repta, then with her daughter, Tiny. Martha then moved to a small home in Holstien where her granddaughter, Verneda Needam, stayed with her at night. Martha would sit by the coal stove fire in the dark of the evenings and tell Verneda about Tennessee during the days of the Civil War.
Martha's last move was back to Maynardsville, Tenn. where she resided with her oldest son, J. Orville Monroe, until her death in 1926. She is buried in a little country cemetery on a hillside near the farm where she died. This farm is now owned by her grandson James Noah Monroe and his wife, Beulah. Martha's Husband, Noah, is buried in Holstien, Nebraska.
