This large cemetery was formerly called "Number 7".
Larry Heffner explains the description:
"The name Nobe is apparently from the biblical name Nobah. The village was established 1882-1887, depending on which source you happen across. A number of my ancestors are buried in the cemetery including my grandparents who always referred to the church and cemetery as 'number 7'. I found that one-room schools were numbered and the one at present-day Nobe was 'Number 7'; therefore the church and cemetery were also called "Number 7'."

List of burials may be found at Find a Grave and at USGenWeb site. The USGenWeb has the complete listing of pre-1985 burials transcribed from the "Cemeteries of Calhoun County" book.
