Birth of Noble H. HUGHES (1915)

From the Danville Gazette (Danville, Indiana) - issue of Thursday, January 21, 1915 - page 1, column 5:

A strange visitor came into the home of Mr. and Mrs. C.V. Hughes near Chrismas, Ills., on the morning of Jan. 16th. Mrs. Hughes was formerly Miss Pearl Noble of Danville. No one knew just why the strange came nor for what reason he paid them a nocturnal visit. Evidently he was not a burglar, for he did not seem disposed to take any of the valuables from the home. Besides, he made no effort to escape when discovered by members of the household. In fact, all the members of the family immediately became so attached to him that they decided to keep him. Not knowing how to address him, it was decided to christen him Master Noble H. Hughes. The mother and father are very proud of their first-born son.
