Butler G. Noble (1815–1890) was the seventh Lieutenant Governor of Wisconsin under Governor Alexander Randall. He was born in Geneva, New York. He wrote the American Railroad Journal in August 1834 from Dexter, Michigan Territory, with a well presented plan for an Aeronautic Steam Car. He moved to Wisconsin in 1850. He soon joined the Republican Party. He served as a member of the Wisconsin State Assembly in 1858, and was elected lieutenant governor at the end of the next year, a position in which he served from 1860 until 1862. In 1864, he moved to New York City, where he held jobs first as a weigher in the customs house, then as a harbor master, then as chief clerk in the seizure room. He died in 1890, in Brooklyn.
