NOUD, Cora Adah

Cora Adah NOUD
UPDATE - Cora Adah Noud has been claimed by a relative and is going back home to Michigan.

This photo is labelled "CORA ADAH NOUD" and was taken at a photographer's studio in Bay City, Michigan, probably around 1873-1875. The photo was found in upstate New York.

The photo is a bit light, but I was able to increase the contrast on this digital copy, and the features come out very clearly.

1870 Census, Bay City Michigan
NOUD, Ermina, 30, born in Canada, Liquor Dealer
NOUD, Emma, 9, born in Kentucky, attends school

NOUD, Cora, 2, Michigan, at home

Mother Ermina Jane Noud is likely widowed at this time, as no husband is in the household, and she is running a business on her own. The 1870 census did not supply marriage status. Her maiden name is "Beattie".

The family moved to Washington DC between mid-1870s and early 1880s. Cora Noud's name appears in a list of local grammar school students who passed their exams and were admitted to High School. This article appeared in the Evening Star newspaper, Washington DC, June 18, 1884.

24 Nov 1897, Cora Adah Noud is married in District of Columbia to William W. Rebuschatis. She gives her age as 28, and birth year as 1869.

Newspaper insert, Washington Times, Wash. DC, 25 June 1919, states that Marion Rebuschatis would give the valedictory address at that week's coming commencement of the Wilson Normal School.

Marion later married Kenneth Stanley Fagg, a noted artist whose work graced the covers of various science fiction magazines. They had sons Peter and Donald. Marion and Kenneth are buried in the Oak Hill cemetery in Washington DC,

Cora's husband William is found on the 1930 Census in El Paso County, Colorado, as a patient at the "Union Printers Home." He died Dec 1933 and is buried (as Wilhelm Rebuschatis) in Woodlands Cemetery, Des Moines Iowa near his parents, Friedrich and Emilie.
