-Missouri Republican, September 20, 1868
[Edgar J. Noe died] at St. Louis, Missouri on Tuesday morning, September 17, 1868 of inflammation of the bowels. He was the second son of C. Noe, Esquire of this city. He was 23 years old. Thus is cut down in the first dawn of manhood one who bid fair to be an ornament to society, as well as a first-rate business man. He was much loved by all who knew him and will be regretted by many friends and companions here in Norfolk as well as in St. Louis. He was a loving and affectionate son and brother and a faithful friend.
