Noble and his wife were buried in the "Uncle Joe Hill" cemetery in Morgan County, KY. This is one of many cemeteries that was moved during the Paintsville Lake Project. The cemetery was reinterred in the Paint Memorial Cemetery, Crockett, Morgan County, KY. Unfortunately, few of the graves in the Adams, Hill, Rowland Cemetery(aka Uncle Joe Hill Cemetery)had tombstones, but were marked with field stones. Therefore, all the government issued markers that were placed in the Adams, Hill, Rowland Cemetery section of the Paint Memorial Cemetery are marked unknown.
