Ira D. LOOP [Nathaniel(6), Peter(5), Christian(4), Jacob(3), Sebastian(2), Anthony(1)] the fourth child of Nathaniel LOOP was born about 1807, in Odelltown, Quebec, or Alburgh, Grand Isle, VT, depending on which of his Civil War enlistment papers you believe. Odelltown is just north across the border from Alburgh, and Alburgh is where Capt. Peter LOOP's son Philyer lived. Ira D. LOOP's first wife was Lucy YORK. Their marriage was bonded August 8, 1831, in St. Thomas, Elgin County, Ontario. They are both listed as being of Yarmouth, Elgin County, Ontario. She was born about 1814 in Canada. They appear in the 1840 census of Lockport, Niagara County, New York, with two male and two female children, all under ten. But two years later they appear in the 1842 census of Malahide Township, Elgin County, Ontario, on a 200 acre concession, with a total of seven members in the family. Lucy Loop appears in the 1851 census of Dorchester Township, Elgin County, Ontario, with three of her children, but living with Steven York, probably her brother. Ira was perhaps at this time preparing a homestead in Michigan. His son James claimed to have come to Michigan in 1852. By the 1860 census, they are living in Burchville, St. Clair County, Michigan. He was a farmer. He enlisted twice during the Civil War. The first time was with the 1st Michigan Cavalry, August 21, 1861, at which time he was listed as age 43, grey hair, grey eyes, a carpenter. He would actually have been 54 at the time. He was discharged due to old age June 13, 1862. That year his first wife, Lucy, died. He then married Martha J. IRONS, September 8, 1862, at Port Huron, St. Clair County, Michigan. She was born about 1830. Only a few months after the wedding, Ira re-enlisted, December 22, 1863, this time with the 1st Engineers and Mechanics. He was described as having grey eyes, brown hair, ruddy complexion and being 5' 11" tall. He was reported sick with "miasmic disease" in Mt. Pleasant Hospital in Washington, D.C., June 8, 1865, and was mustered out of service June 24, 1865. But he never returned to his new wife. She assumed he had died in the war and she remarried to Henry G. TAYLOR, by whom she had at least one child. Ira kept in touch with the children by his first marriage. He died in March, 1886, in Midland, Midland County, MI, at the veterans home. The children of Ira D. LOOP and Lucy YORK were:

+        1.  William Jerry LOOP, b. September, 1832, in Canada, m. 1863, Lois M., surname unknown. He d. between 1900 and 1919, in Fife Lake, Grand Traverse County, MI.

+        8. Emma LOOP, b. about 1864, m. Mr. JOHNSON.

Mordica LOOP [Nathaniel(6), Peter(5), Christian(4), Jacob(3), Sebastian(2), Anthony(1)] perhaps the sixth child of Nathaniel LOOP was born about 1821 in Canada. He married January 1, 1842, Leiby BROWN. They were both then of Durham Township, near London, Ontario. In the 1851 and 1861, his wife is shown as Electa, b. about 1821. We don't know if Leiby and Electa are the same person. In 1851 they were living in Malahide Township, Elgin County, Ontario. He was listed as a broom maker living in a one and a half story frame house. In 1861 he is listed in Malahide as a shoemaker. The children of Mordica LOOP and Electa were:

He married (1) Mary Ann, surname unknown. She was born about 1827. They were censused in Malahide Township, Elgin County, Ontario, in 1851, without children.

He married (2) Sarah E., surname unknown. She died November 19, 1852, and is buried in Rogers Corners Cemetery, in Malahide Township, Elgin County, Ontario. He married (3) Sarah, surname unknown. She may have brought children with her to the marriage. William died before 1871. In the census of that year Sarah is listed as a widow. It is unclear from the 1861 census which children belong to which wife or to William:

+        1.  James Edward LOOP, b. October 14, 1850, in Malahide Township, East Elgin, Ontario, Canada. He m. September 8, 1875, Theresa Elizabeth DENNIS, the daughter of Peter DENNIS and Rebecca SEITZ. She was b. October 14, 1850, in Malahide Township, East Elgin, Ontario, Canada.

+        3.  Nancy M. LOOP, b. about 1855 in Ontario, Canada. She is possibly a child brought to this family by second wife. The middle initial "M" may be from her birth surname.

+        4.  Mary M. LOOP, b. about 1857 in Ontario, Canada. She is possibly a child brought to this family by second wife. The middle initial "M" may be from her birth surname.

Nathaniel Harrison LOUP [Ira D.(7), Nathaniel(6), Peter(5), Christian(4), Jacob(3), Sebastian(2), Anthony(1)] the fourth child of Ira D. LOOP and Lucy YORK was born June 8, 1840, in Lockport, Niagara County, NY. He apparently adopted the spelling LOUPE, which most of his descendants used. The following is an edited version of an article written by a descendant of Nathaniel Harrison LOOP, based on information she collected from family members:

In his teens he went to sea as a cabin boy. He learned to read, write, and "figure" from the ship's carpenter. "The first book he learned to read was the Bible and he could quote a lot of scripture." according to Maude Loop Andrews. He must have learned carpentry then too. He enlisted in the Civil War at Lakeport, St. Clair Co., Michigan in Company C of the 6th Michigan Volunteer Cavalry, on September 5, 1862 under the name of Harrison Loop. He served under Custer and was discharged at Ft. Leavenworth, on July 24, 1865. He told his grandson, W. H. Andrews, about being in charge of a supply wagon. Once he stood on a post trying to see ahead and some damned fool shot the post out from under him. He went to the hospital with a broken leg. He joked about how his war wounds were on his backside. When he was 72, he attended the reunion of Civil War soldiers held at Gettysburg (1913) and wrote an article for the newspaper about the trip. His first marriage was to Alice Dresser whom he married in June, 1866 in Michigan. She died a few months later of tuberculosis. Nathaniel Harrison Loop came to the Black Hills of South Dakota in April of 1877. In order to lighten his load of carpentry tools, he brought just the blades of his planes and made wooden handles after he arrived. He built a log cabin in Deadwood with a stone fireplace. Al Fay and several other men came at the same time. In order to get hay for their horses, he cut hay with a hand scythe while Al Fay watched for Indians. Then Al Fay cut while Loop watched. Nathaniel Harrison Loop married Mary Isabell "Bell" Short on June 4, 1876, in Greenfield, Adair County, Iowa. She joined him in the Black Hills on December 26, 1877, accompanied on the trip via Wells Fargo Express by her brother, Harvey C. Short. They arrived in the first stagecoach to come into Deadwood without being let down by ropes during the last part of the trip. Bell was very lonely at first and had difficulty learning to cook in a fireplace. Her father, Cyrus Hall Short, a Presbyterian minister, joined them a year later. Cyrus also worked as a mason. Nathaniel Harrison Loop worked as a carpenter. They lived in Deadwood at the time the fire destroyed almost all of that city. After the fire, Mr. Loop worked in lead for the Homestake Mine as a pattern maker. He built the first bullwheel used in the Ellison Hoist at the mine. He sold the mine stock he received as part of his wages for $1.00 a share; much to his later regret. They moved to Crook City where he helped set up a sawmill for a Mr. Fish. By 1884 the family moved to Sturgis where he was a carpenter and cabinetmaker. He helped build many homes, buildings, caskets, etc., in the Black Hills. He said he was in demand because he knew how to build stairs that would fit evenly in the space available. He and his sons homesteaded near Whitewood Creek. Some of his descendants still live on the land. At some time he worked at Fort Meade in the commissary. Earlier he did some carpentry work at Fort Meade, building their first zinc-lined bathtub and a zinc-lined ice box in the ice house. Nathaniel Harrison Loop died January 29, 1930, at the Soldier's Home in Hot Springs, South Dakota. He was the last survivor of Calvin Duke Post 143, G.A.R. Funeral services were held at the Sturgis Presbyterian Church. He was a member of Olive Branch Lodge No. 47. A.F. & A.M., and Matopaha Chapter No. 98 O.E.S. His widow lived until April 19, 1952. He and his wife are buried in Bear Butte Cemetery here in Sturgis.
