Volume 2. Biographies
by Major A. J. Roof. 1913
Noah S. Warner, well known in commercial circles of Ludlow, Missouri, as a successful business man, is a native of Livingston county, where he was born August 25, 1874. His parents were H. C. and Emeline (Ackenback) Warner, old settlers of Livingston county and both of German ancestry. They still make their home on the same farm on which they settled on coming to this section, the home place being located near Ludlow.
Noah S. Warner acquired his education in the Warner school in Livingston county and at the age of fourteen laid aside his school-books in order to assist his father with the work of the farm. He spent three years on the homestead, so occupied, and then went to Indiana, where he was for two years connected with the butcher business. He then spent thirteen months on the Indianapolis police force, subsequent to which period he joined the United States army, being assigned to Company A, Eighth Infantry, and after serving for three years was honorably discharged as company quartermaster sergeant. At the end of this period he returned to his home near Ludlow and farmed for three years in the vicinity of this city.
Mr. Warner, in September, 1901, was united in marriage to Miss Matie E. Haughton, and after the ceremony they removed to Carroll county and there lived on a farm until February, 1904, at which time Mrs. Warner passed away, leaving one son, Russell. Mr. Warner then engaged in the general mercantile business in Quote, Carroll county, and success attended his efforts. He was again married, his second union being with Miss Minnie E. Caseldine, of Carroll county. and to them one child was born, Melvin E. Until August, 1911, he continued his connection with mercantile interests there but at that time returned to Ludlow and engaged in the grain business and is at present erecting an elevator for public use in connection with Joseph and Elmer Dusenberry. While his own prosperity is an achievement worthy of notice, his success has been of benefit and general and practical value to the community in many ways.
Mr. Warner is a devout member of the Baptist church and in his. political belief followed the republican standard until the split in the party occurred, when he chose to follow the progressive banner. He thoroughly believes in the ideals of the new party and is active in bringing about the realization of much needed reforms, showing interest while serving as committee man. Fraternally he belongs to the Masonic order and the Independent Order of Odd Fellows. His entire life has been guided by the most honorable principles and his self-reliance and unfaltering industry, combined with his integrity, constitute the salient features in his success.
