Noah Noble was born to Dr. Thomas II and Elizabeth Claire Betty (Sedgwick) Noble on January 14, 1794 on Long Marsh Plantation in Berryville, Virginia. Noble was one of twelve children.

Most notably, Noble served as Governor of the State of Indiana from 1831 to 1837. He died on February 8, 1844 in Indianapolis, Indiana and was interned at Crown Hill Cemetery.
