Noah was a descendant of Connecticut Governor John Webster. He was primarily a farmer, though he was also deacon of the local Congregational church, captain of the town's militia, and a founder of a local book society (a precursor to the public library). After American independence, he was appointed a justice of the peace.
He never attended college, but he was intellectually curious and prized education.
