Samuel Noble was known as Buckskin Sam. He traveled like Buffalo Bill and wrote about his adventures during the early 1900s. When he wasn't traveling he sometimes lived in Byron, spending time hunting and trapping along the Swift River.

Noble also did odd jobs for local people and made fine hunting knives. A section of the Rumford Rangley Railroad north of Houghton Station is known as "Buckskin's Curve," which was the location of Noble's cabin.
