The Alex Noble Family Near Kinsey, Mont.
I was born March 25, 1916, at Anaconda, Mont., to Mr. and Mrs. Alex E. Noble. They located near Kinsey. I attended the elementary grades at the Kinsey school, then on to Miles City to high school. After graduating I worked as a clerk in a bakery and at Sawyer's grocery store in Miles City. I married Roland Bannister in 1948 at Miles City, Mont. We had three sons, Brent, who lives in Miles City, Bruce who is in the marines. William who is deceased. My parents sold their ranch at Kinsey in 1951 and purchased a home on the east shore of Flathead Lake, near Big Fork, Mont. My father still lives there in their home but my mother passed away in 1961. I have a sister who lives in Chicago, Ill. She is the former Mary Ellen Noble and is married to George Bagley. We are now living at 417 South Strevell, Miles City, Mont.
