Sampson Diuguid was the first member of the Diuguid Family in Lynchburg, Va. There he started what is known at the present as The Diuguid Funeral Home which has been in operation continuously for 170 years although it passed out of the Diuguid Family in 1950 (see page 263). It is one of the oldest, if not the oldest, undertaking concerns in Virginia. This business was started by Sampson Diuguid in 1817 as a cabinet making shop. At that time and for some years afterward, it was the practice for all coffins to be made custom order by cabinet makers. Many of the coffins manufactured by Sampson Diuguid in his pioneer stock were made of mahogany, and this material was transported from Baltimore, Md. down the Bay and up the James River to Lynchburg. At first the firm was Diuguid and Winston, but Sampson Diuguid bow ht out his partner. The firm was at first a cabinet making and an undertaking business. After 1820, Sampson Diuguid began formally an under­taking business and continued the business under his control until his death in 1856. The management then passed to his sons, David P. Diuguid and George Alex­ander Diuguid, and after 1864, George Alexander Diuguid was proprietor. In May 1880, the firm became G. A. Diuguid and Son, and from 1893 until Sept. 1922 the business was incorporated as W. D. Diuguid, Inc. with William Davidson Diuguid as president, G. A. Diuguid, vice president, Mary S. Diuguid, Secretary and Treas. After the death of her father, William Davidson Diuguid on 11 November 1927, Mary Sampson Diuguid, carried on the business with the help of Mr. Hudgins until 1950. The business then passed out of the Diuguid Family. Sampson Diuguid was a valued citizen, serving as a member of the Town Council and of the Volunteer Hose Company. Over his desk in his office hung a "silhouette" of an old character called "Molly Peckerwood". His real name was James Moseley. He had been gently reared in the Moose Creek Valley neighborhood, but had fallen into intemperate habits after securing employment in Lynchburg, Va. as the book-keeper of Mr. Christopher Anthony. During the brief periods when he could work, he had a habit of pecking away with his pen on the wood of his desk, hence the nickname "Molly Peckerwood". After the death of Mr. Anthony and in his later years, he was befriended by Sampson Diuguid, who sug­gested him, because of his picturesque appeal, as a subject of a silhouettes named Brown visiting the city at that time. So it came about that "Molly Peckerwood's" figure hung over the desk in Sampson Diuguid's office until at long last its identity was almost lost sight of and people wondered who the old man was. Information from Miss Mary Sampson Diuguid, great granddaughter of Sampson Diuguid shows that she owned the silhouette back in 1941. She stated that there was an interesting article in "Antiques Magazine" in Oct. 1941, pages 182 and 183 by Lucille McWane Watson stating that she was certain that the silhouette is the work of the great eighteenth century silhouettest, William H. Brown, who immortalized many of the most distinguished people of his day. The charming title given it by Iucille McWane Watson was "Ne'er Do Well Among the Well-to-Do". ----------------------------------------------- Sampson Diuguid From C. H. Wynne, "Sketches and Recollections of Lynchburg by the Oldest Inhabitant," Richmond, Virginia 1858. Sampson Diuguid was a native of Appomattox County, from which, many years since, he removed, making his home in Lynchburg, where, till the time of his death,. he resided, an honored and beloved citizen. Whilst John and Hardin Murrel were diligently employed on one side of the street, dis­pensing from the post-office good and ill, Sampson Diuguid, on the other side, was equally occupied in another department of life and death. Combining the occupation of cabinet-maker and undertaker, he industriously pursued his avocations for the benefit of the living and the dead; and his services to the former, will long remain visible throughout the whole section of country around Lynchburg, in that beautiful, durable furniture, by him manufac­tured, differing so widely from those slight showy articles procured from the Northern cities. Whilst visible to the passers-by at his occupation, slowly and surely would the last solemn messenger, Death, render it often necessary for the services of Sampson Diuguid to be called in requisition for the departed. His office of undertaker, so frequently placing him amid scenes of distress, it might natu­rally have been supposed that even a very tender heart would become habituated to such things. Yet often has the fine manly face of Sampson Diuguid been seen suffused with tears on funeral occasions, and frequently at the grave he has with difficulty been able to command his feelings. How different from men of this occupation described by Dickens. Witness the hard, obdurate heart of Sowerberry, and the easy, careless levity of Oram and Joram. Sampson Diuguid's upright, useful life was closed during the winter of 1856, and this brief notice cannot be more appropriately closed than by aa few words treasured up in memory from the editorial of the Lynchburg Virginian, announcing his death­" And, after having consigned many thousand to the narrow chambers of death, he was himself borne to the county of Appomattox, there to repose be­neath the clods of the valley!" Courtesy of Bess Christian Thompson, Fairfax, Virginia. ----------------------------------------------- The following copied from "Lynchburg and its Neighbors": Sampson Diuguid died in 1856 and was succeeded in the business by George A. Diuguid. He died in 1887 and his place was taken by the late William D. Diuguid who made many improvements in the business. The carriage by which caskets are wheeled into church, now used by all undertakers, was an invention of William D. Diuguid. For three generations in Lynchburg, this family have closed the eyes of the dead and have given the bereaved considerate attention. No men were ever more respected or honored in a community than these three good men.

AARON NOBLE, s. of Sergt. Luke, was b. in Westfield, Mass., Nov. 10. 1711, and there d. unm., of a nervous fever, Feb. 6, 1790, ae. 78. He was by trade a weaver, and when comparatively young became insane in consequence, it is said, of disappointment in an early attachment. A representation having been made, Jan. 27, 1746, to the judge of probate for Hampshire county, by Moses, Asa, and Samuel Noble, that their brother, Aaron Noble of 'Westfield, was “non compos, lunatick, or distracted,” and a wish expressed that he would take care of his person and estate, the judge directed the selectmen of Westfield to inquire into his state. Their report, recorded in Hampshire probate records, vol. vii: p. 25, was as follows: “Hampshire ss. Westfield, March, 1745-6. “Whereas the Honble John Stoddard, Esq., Judge of the Probate of Wills &c., hath directed us the subscribers to make Inquiry into the circumstances of Aaron Noble of Westfield, whether he is compos mentis, or not, and make report to him the said Judge, of our Judgment therein and reasons thereof: in consequence whereof we have made Inquiry, and do judge, that he the said Aaron is now non compos mentis, but delirious or distracted, for the reasons following, viz: he often says his Father, and his own mother (whose maiden name was Ruth Wright) is at Northampton, and would go up and see them, and that Moses Noble, Asa and Samuel Noble were not his brothers, Ruth Wright his mother, was not their mother, and he will often strive with his hands, and arms, and in those agonies, says it is to keep Samuel Noble from being him, viz. the said Aaron, and sometimes mentions other persons that are a trying to be him. He was an industrious man till about two or three years ago, and now he has left off his trade of weaving, and almost all sorts of business, and will sit in his chair by the fire, and get up and walk a few steps, and come and sit again, and by appearance seems to be in a muse, and not capable to judge the force of any argument, and often says his mare tells him where he shall go. When he is abroad, he will sometimes walk a few rods, and stand still sometime, and then move again, and when he…" From BY THE NAME OF NOBLE. COMPILED BY Lucius M. BOLTWOOD. All that tread The globe are but a handful to the tribes That slumber in its bosom." PRIVATELY PRINTED. HARTFORD, CONN.: PRESS OF THE CASE, LOCKWOOD & BRAINARD COMPANY. 1878. p. 577

[12487]

Pvt. Jacob Noble served in the Revolutionary War. Initially, he enlisted on 21 Sep 1777 and was discharged 11 Oct 1777.

He further had return enlistments: • With men raised in Hampshire County, MA, from the late Colonel Moseley's regtiment, by order of Brig. Gen. Danderson (Danielson?), dated Hampshire County, 26 Oct 1780. • With men belonging to Captain Mosele's, Captain Kellog's, and Lieutenant Sait's companies, engaged for town of Westfield for a term of 3 months. • Was a sergeant in Captain Levi Ely's company, Colonel John Brown's regtiment.
