additional information:
The 1866-67 Watertown directory lists him as a merchant selling groceries and crockery. The 1880 census lists him as city assessor.

His obituary says he came to Watertown "40 years ago". Also that he resided in Sacramento, California, for a few months. He was also the supervisor for the First Ward, and he was a member of various brass bands.

His oldest son, Charles J. Noack Jr., moved to Sacramento about 1876, and two other sons (Otto and Alexander) later joined their brother in the jewelry business there. Maxwell Noack moved to Santa Rosa, California. The other three sons died in childhood.

The obituary gives his birthplace as "Duben, Saxony". However, I believe they left out the umlaut, and he was born in Düben, Prussia, in the province of Saxony. The town is now known as Bad Düben

The 1860 census shows an Augustus Noack living next door. This is probably his brother August.
