That part of this narrative from 1811 to 1818, was related to me by myparents, after I was old enough to remember distinctly. Since that timethe narrative is given as correctly as my own memory serves me, andbeing chiefly incidents in my own life, they naturally made a deepimpression on me at the time.
Having had no opportunity for education, I am compelled to relyentirely on memory, and it is possible that I may, in a few instances,err in dates. But not as to the facts as related.
My life has been an eventful one, much of it spent on the frontier amidthe dangers of the savages and the privations and hardships incidentthereto.
Now that I have reached my sixty-eighth year, it is a matter ofsurprise and gratitude that I have lived through it all, while so manyof my earlier companions have long since passed away.
To many this simple narrative will not be interesting. But it isprepared simply for my children and immediate relatives. I leave it tothem as a personal memeto of my early experiences in the Great West, sothat in better times which have come they may be reminded of the toils,dangers and sufferings of one who has helped to lay the foundations ofour present prosperity.

Biographical Sketch
From The Biographical Record of Rock Island County, Illinois
The J. S. Clark Publishing Company
BENJAMIN GOBLE - No state in the Union can boast of a more heroic bandof pioneers than Illinois. In their intelligence, capability and geniusthey are far above the pioneers of the eastern states, and in theirdaring and heroism are equal to the Missouri and California argonauts.Their privations, hardships and earnest labors have
resulted in establishing one of the foremost commonwealths in America,the possibilities of which are greater than those possessed by any ofher sister states. In Mr. Goble we find not only a pioneer of RockIsland county, but also a native son of Illinois, his birth havingoccurred at Fort Compton, Wabash county, October 17, 1813.
The parents of our subject were George and Nancy (Arnold) Goble,natives of Kentucky and Illinois, respectively, who were married atFort Compton. The paternal grandfather, Benjamin Goble, was born inIreland and as a young man came to America, where he was twice married,having by the first wife four sons, and by the
second three children. He was a farmer by occupation and died inIndiana. As a Continental soldier he took an active part in theRevolutionary war. Stephen A. and Sallie Arnold were the maternalgrandparents of our subject.
The former was born in Kentucky and became one of the earliest settlersof Illinois, raising the first crop of wheat in this state. He was alsoa Revolutionary hero, being a captain of a company which valiantlyaided in the struggle for independence. HIs death occurred in Wabashcounty, Illinois.
Our subject is one of a family of eight children, seven sons and onedaughter, but with the exception of himself all are now deceased. Thefather, who was a farmer by occupation, came to Illinois in 1810, wasmarried at Fort Compton, and died October 25, 1829, at the age offorty-five years, being laid to rest in a cemetery at Rock Island. Hiswife, who was a devout member of the Methodist church, long survivedhim and spent her last days in Oregon, where she died January 16, 1870,at the age of seventy-six.
In the year of his birth Mr. Goble, of this review, was taken by hisparents to Clay county, Illinois, in 1826 removed to American Bottom,and the year following to Missouri, locating five miles north of St.Louis. In 1828 he went to Merrimac, and on the 26th of May, 1829,located in Rock Island county, with the development and
progress of which he has since been prominently identified. He at firstworked at whatever he could find to do, receiving a salary of fiftycents per day, and has made as many as thirty-five thousand rails. Hewas often employed by Mr. Davenport, working on the site of the presentcity of that name, and helped hew the logs and
erect the log house for Colonel Davenport in 1832. In those early dayshe also spent considerable time in hunting, has killed over threehundred deer, and has captured one hundred and fifteen swarms of wildbees.
On the 22d of August, 1833, Justice Joel Wells performed a weddingceremony which united the destinies of Mr. Goble and Miss BarbaraVandruff, a daughter of Joshua and Betsy (Weiscover) Vandruff, it beingthe second marriage in Rock Island county. Eleven children blessedtheir union, namely Emeline; Jesse; Vester; Louisa, wife of JasperWoods; Benjamin; Sylvester; Barbara Ann, wife of David Dilts; Merritt;Emma, wife of Lee Hiserodt; Ferrell, and Angeline, wife of Frederick H.Cook, of Tiskilwa, Illinois. The wife and mother was called to herfinal resting in 1893, at the age of seventy-six years, after sixtyyears of happy marriage.
Mr. Goble was a soldier in the Black Hawk war and has been activelyidentified with every movement calculated to advance the generalwelfare or promote the prosperity of his native state. In 1852 heremoved to Henry county, and became the owner of four valuable farmsaggregating five hundred acres of rich and arable land. In connectionwith general farming, he also dealt extensively in cattle and hogs,which proved quite profitable, especially during the Civil war, when hesold one drove of one hundred head of hogs at eleven dollars and a halfper hundred pounds and another lot at twelve dollars and forty cents.In April, 1869, he sold his property in Henry county and went toCouncil Bluffs, Iowa, where he spent the summer and then returned toRock Island county, living near Sears, on the island, until 1882, whenhe moved to Milan. After the death of his wife he lived for a time witha daughter in Tiskilwa, but now makes his home with his son Merritt onsection 22, Black Hawk township. He has given all of his children agood start in life.
Being the oldest living resident of the county, Mr. Goble was honoredby being chosen to lay the corner stone of the elegant new court housejust completed in Rock Island. He has seen the country develop from anunbroken wilderness and has ever borne his part in the wonderfultransformation that has taken place. He is noted for his remarkablememory, having the faculty of remembering facts and dates andassociating them accurately. His honesty and integrity are proverbial,and he has the respect and esteem of young and old, rich and poor. Inearly life he was a Democrat, but since the outbreak of the Civil warhas been an ardent Republican, and has ever proved one of the mostloyal, patriotic and valued citizens of this great commonwealth.

From Portrait and Biographical Album of Rock Island County, Illinois

Chicago, 1885
Benjamin Goble, one of the oldest native born residents of the greatPrairie State, is now a retired farmer, living at Milan, this county.He was born in Wabash County, Ill., Oct. 17, 1813, on the Wabash River,15 miles south of Vincennes, Ind.
Mr. George Goble, father of Benjamin, was born in Kentucky, marriedMiss Nancy Arnold, also a native of that State. They were of Irishancestry. Both of Benjamin's grandfathers were soldiers in theRevolutionary War, one of them a captain. The subject of thisbiographical outline was the oldest of ten children, and is the onlyone now living! When peace was declared between the United States andGreat Britain, in 1815, his father moved with his family into ClayCounty, this State, settling upon the Little Wabash River; in thespring of 1826 they removed to the American Bottom, near St. Louis,Mo.; the next year they went across the river and located five milesnorth of St. Louis; then they lived one year on the Merrimac River,south of that city; and in May, 1829, they came to this county andsettled near the site of Moline, that is, about one mile east. Thesenior Goble died the succeeding fall, leaving his son Benjamin, then17 years of age, practically at the head of the family, which thenconsisted of the widowed mother and five children. He "took up" a smallpiece of land and made some improvements upon it, but, owing to thechanges made by our Government in its treaties with the Indians, withreference to reservations, etc., he lost his claim. When the Black HawkWar broke out in 1831, he and his few neighbors had to garrisonthemselves in Fort Armstrong, on the southern point of Rock Island.There they had to remain a month or two in each of the two years, 1831and 1832, enduring many and severe hardships, in order to keepthemselves secure from Indian hostilities. They had, of course, to losetheir little crops, stock of domestic animals, etc.
After the death of his father, Mr. Goble remained with his mother untilabout a year after he was married, on the island of Lowell, now betterknown as "Little Island," in a small cabin 15 x 16 feet square. Hismarriage occurred Aug. 22, 1833, to Miss Barbara, daughter of Joshuaand Elizabeth Vandruff, of Pennsylvania ancestry. Mrs. G. was bornabout 1816, and was but a child when her parents moved to Ohio; a fewyears later they settled near Rock Island and Moline, this county. Inthe spring of 1834, Mr. G. made a claim of 108 acres between these twopoints, which was then wild and unbroken, with more Indians than whitesin the vicinity; that place is now known as the "Brooks place." Someyears afterward he sold there and removed to "Rock Bottom," near thejunction of the Rock River with the Mississippi; and after residing atseveral other places for short periods, he went to Henry County andpurchased 500 acres of land, where he resided until May, 1869, when hetraveled around in the farther West, but, finding no place that bettersuited him, he returned to this county. He, however, looked about fortwo months, without unloading his wagon, for a suitable location, andthen settled on a farm on Big Island, near Rock River, and lived thereuntil February, 1882, when he retired from active farm labor, came toMilan, and purchased a fine piece of property, where he now resides.
He has had 11 children, 10 of whom are yet living, all hale and hearty.The family have called a physician but once, and they attribute theirextraordinary health mainly to their abstinence from intoxicatingliquors, tobacco, tea, coffee, etc.
Mr. Goble, still having a remarkably strong memory, has recentlypublished a book entitled "Pioneer Life in Illinois," in which manymore interesting events, especially in this part of the State, are welland truly related.
Mr. Goble is a zealous Republican.
