CHAPTER 16 -- Benjamin Loop of Ontario

Benjamin LOOP [Peter(5), Christian(4), Jacob(3), Sebastian(2), Anthony(1)] was the last child of Capt. Peter LOOP and Maria BAILEY. He was born February 28, 1783, and christened June 8, 1783 at Linlithgo, Columbia County, New York. He was known as Benjamin Franklin Loop, but the middle name does not appear on his baptismal record. November 20, 1810, he is listed in the Kingston Gazette as having a letter waiting for him at the Kingston Post Office, Kingston, Frontenac County, Ontario. Before 1814 he had married Agnes KENNEDY, and had a son Henry, probably not their first child. In 1817, they were residing in Hallowell Township in Prince Edward County, Ontario, when they're daughter Ann was born. Benjamin's brother Nathaniel also resided in Hallowell. Benjamin's wife, Agnes Jane KENNEDY, was born May 8, 1788, probably in Canada. Benjamin and Nathaniel probably moved their families from Prince Edward County to Middlesex County about 1825, settling around London, Ontario. It is not clear how long Benjamin and Agnes lived in the London area, but they have not been found there in the 1842 census, though it has some townships missing. By 1836 their son John had established a farm in Mersea Township, Essex County. By 1845 (perhaps well before) Benjamin and Agnes had established squatter's rights to land in Gosfield Township, next to Mersea, in Essex County. Benjamin and Agnes do not appear in the 1851 census of Essex County. Nor do they show up in the 1850 census of Michigan. So it is likely that they moved to Flint, Michigan, in late 1850. There they lived with their daughter Mary (Loop) Griffith and her husband. Agnes Loop died in Flint, February 15, 1860, Benjamin died January 19, 1865. They are both buried in the Bristol Road Cemetery, in Flint, Genesee County, Michigan. The birthdate inscribed on Benjamin's tombstone (December 12, 1781) conflicts with the birthdate given on his baptismal record.

Joseph LOOP [Benjamin(6), Peter(5), Christian(4), Jacob(3), Sebastian(2), Anthony(1)] the first child of Benjamin Franklin LOOP and Agnes Jane KENNEDY was born about 1811 in Canada. He is probably the Joseph Loop whose residence is listed as Caradoc Township, Ontario, on an 1837 land record. Caradoc Township is about 10 miles west of London, Ontario, in Middlesex County. Prior to 1845 he may have moved around some, as his child born in 1842 is listed on his marriage record as being born in Michigan, and his daughter born in about 1843 is listed as having been born in Oxford, east of London. On August 24, 1845, he bought Lot 6, Concession 3, of Plympton Township, Lambton County, Ontario. He sold the lot August 29, 1867. On August 12, 1869, he bought Lot 19, Concession 2, in Mersea Township, Essex County, from William Loop, probably his nephew. He married Mary PELTON before 1842. She was born about 1805 in Canada. The children of Joseph LOOP and Mary PELTON were:

+        1.  Joseph LOOP, Jr., b. May 1, 1842, in Canada, or possibly Michigan, m. (1) Elizabeth COLLIER. She was b. about 1845 in Canada, and d. April 18, 1874 probably in Michigan. He m. (2) Sarah Matilda EMIGH, or Sarah CALDWELL, b. about 1848 in Michigan. He d. MAY 12, 1881 probably in Worth, Sanilac County, Michigan.

+        2.  Anne LOOP, b. about 1843 in "Oxford", possibly Oxford Twp, Oxford County, Ontario, m. January 15, 1864, Luman BURTCH of Plympton Twp. He was b. about 1842 in Michigan.

+        3.  George Washington LOOP, b. April 4, 1847, in Plympton Township, Lambton County, Ontario, m. (1) December 27, 1868, Helen EMIGH. He m. (2) Edith THOMPSON. She was b. August, 1861, in Jeddo, St. Clair County, MI. He d. October 17, 1923, in Worth Township, Sanilac County, MI, and is buried in the Lakeport, Michigan cemetery in Burtchville Township, St. Clair County, MI. His widow d. in 1950.

+        4.  Mary LOOP, b. about 1848 in Plympton Twp, Lambton County, Ontario, m. December 30, 1864, William STEADMAN of Enniskillen Twp, Lambton County. He was b. about 1843 in Plympton Twp.

+        5.  Samuel LOOP, b. April 29, 1849, d. February 1, 1878.

John LOOP [Benjamin(6), Peter(5), Christian(4), Jacob(3), Sebastian(2), Anthony(1)] was the second child of Benjamin Franklin LOOP and Agnes Jane KENNEDY. He was born about 1815. One county history has his birth as "near London, Ontario", but this is unlikely, as his sister was born in Prince Edward County, Ontario, in 1817, which would have the family migrating in the wrong direction. One census has him born in the U.S. and another in Canada. The families of Benjamin Loop and Nathaniel Loop probably moved from Prince Edward County to Middlesex county around 1825 settling near London. In 1836, John, single and around age 21, left Middlesex County, possibly alone, to settle a homestead in Mersea Township, Essex County, Ontario. That same year he married Mary Lucinda (Lucy) ROBERTS, who was born in Mersea Township, Essex County, Ontario, in 1816. They lived in Mersea at least until 1861, but they both died at nearby Kingsville in Gosfield Township, he on February 8, 1887 and she on February 18, 1888. This date of death for John is possibly incorrect, as a John LOOP, of the correct age, 76, is living with Urias LOOP, in the 1891 census of Kingsville, though he is listed as a domestic. They are buried at Lakeview Cemetery in Leamington, Essex County, Ontario, though there are apparently no stones. The children of John LOOP and Mary Lucinda ROBERTS were:

+          1.  Lovisa LOOP (adopted), b. about 1835, Point Pelee, Mersea Township, Essex County, Ontario, Canada, m. April 4, 1850, Michael MOONEY of Mersea. He was b. abt. 1824, in Ireland. He was a farmer. She d. December 8, 1876, in childbirth, probably in Mersea. He d. September 28, 1882, in Essex County, Ontario, Canada. They had children:

a.    Etherias MOONEY, b. abt. 1850, in Canada.

b.    James MOONEY, b. December 10, 1852, in Point Pelee, Mersea Twp., Essex County, Ontario. He is probably the "Charles" listed in the 1861 census. He m. February 24, 1879, Emily DeLAURER. She was b. abt. 1857 in Point Pelee, Mersea Twp., Essex County, Ontario. They had five children.

c.    John MOONEY, b. abt. 1852, in Canada.

d.    William MOONEY, b. abt. 1855, in Canada.

She d. in 1944. Both are buried in Wheatley, Kent County, Ontario. Wheatley is just across the county line from Mersea Township. They had a son (see Adam Henry LOOP).

h.    Duncan Philemon MOONEY, b. abt. 1871, in Ontario.

+          2.  William LOOP, b. about 1837, Canada, m. Sarah E. DRUYOR (widow of Mr. DELLYOR?). She was b. about 1838 in OH. He died in 1914. She died in 1928.

+          3.  Joseph LOOP, b. October 20, 1839, at Point Pelee, Mersea Township, Essex County, Ontario, "in a log cabin". He never married, but took as a foster child, George Henry MANERY ( b. 1872, d. 1937). George Henry MANERY married Sarah Alsorah LOOP, daughter of Benjamin Franklin LOOP, Jr. Joseph Loop was a seaman on the schooner "Sweeper" of Toledo on Lake Erie for 11 years before going into the fishing business with his brothers Henry and Ira. He sold out of that business and went into farming in Mersea Township. He died March 9, or June 19, 1921 and is buried in Lakeview Cemetery in Leamington, Essex County, Ontario.

+          4 . Henry LOOP, b. about 1840 at Point Pelee, Essex, Ontario, m. July 20, 1873, Jemima LANE. She was b. March 19, 1954.  He and his brother Ira were pound net fishermen on Lake Erie. Henry died in 1922 and is buried in Greenhill Cemetery in Kingsville, Essex County, Ontario. They had children:

+        a.  Maggie LOOP, b. abt. 1875, in Ontario.

+          5.  Ellis LOOP, b. about 1841, d. in infancy.

+          6.  Charles LOOP, b. about 1842, in Canada, m. Mary McBRAYNE. He died in Michigan.

+          7.  Benjamin Franklin LOOP, Jr., b. September 6, 1844 at Point Pelee, Essex County, Ontario, m. Josephine FOX, January 1,1868, at Point Pelee. She was born between 1844 and 1849, the daughter of Theodore FOX. Benjamin LOOP died April 18, 1929. Josephine d. in 1925. They are buried together in Lakeview Cemetery, Leamington, Essex County, Ontario.

+          8.  Ira LOOP, b. October 21, 1847 at Point Pelee, Essex, Ontario, m. December 30, 1868, Clarissa Jane GAUVEREAU. She was born March 18, 1847 at Gosfield, Essex County, Ontario. He was a fisherman in Kingsville. He died March 12, 1908. She died at Kingsville, Essex County, Ontario, in 1922.

+          9.  Urias LOOP, b. about 1850, in Canada, m. (1) Mary GARDINER, and (2) Sarah SUTTON, of Dutton, Ontario. He had children :

+        a.  Louisa E. LOOP, b. November 13, 1884, in Ontario.

+        b.  Charles Gordon LOOP, b. February 9. 1886, in Point Pelee, Essex County, Ontario. He m. June 7, 1907, Jennie Dell HEATH. She was b. October, 1888, in Ontario, the daughter of William HEATH and Eliza O'CONNER. They had children:

+        i.  Ada Kathleen LOOP, b. December 12, 1907, in Kingsville, Essex County, Ontario.

+        ii.  Opal Fayette LOOP, b. January 7, 1910, in Essex County, Ontario.

+        10.  Susan LOOP, b. about 1854. No other information.

+        11.  Angeline LOOP, b. about 1857. This daughter assumes that the John LOOP, b. 1815, living with Urias LOOP in the 1891 census is Urias' father (even though he is listed as a domestic, and other sources say he died in 1887). In this census Angeline LOOP is listed as John's daughter. However, she does not show up in the 1861 census.

Joseph LOOP [Joseph(7), Benjamin(6), Peter(5), Christian(4), Jacob(3), Sebastian(2), Anthony(1)] the first child of Joseph LOOP and Mary PELTON, was born May 1, 1842, in Canada, or possibly Michigan. He married (1) Elizabeth COLLIER. She was born about 1845 in Canada, the daughter of Thomas COLLIER (born England) and Sarah, surname unknown. Elizabeth (COLLIER) LOOP died April 18, 1874, probably in Michigan. He then married (2) Sarah Matilda EMIGH. She was born about 1848 in Michigan. He died May 12, 1881 probably in Worth, Sanilac County, Michigan. She died in 1933 in Michigan, and is buried in Lakeside Cemetery, Port Huron, St. Clair County, Michigan.

He married Sarah E. DRUYOR (widow of Mr. DELLYOR?) daughter of Frank DRUYOR and Julia ALLEN. She was born in Ohio. They lived in Leamington, Mersea Township, Essex County, Ontario. But they apparently lived in Ohio for a time, as they are censused in Carroll Township, Ottawa County, Ohio, in 1880. He died in 1914 and is buried in Lakeview Cemetery in Leamington, Essex County, Ontario. She died in 1928.
