CHAPTER 20 -- Peter H. Loop of Ohio

Peter H. LOOP [Henry(5), Christian(4), Jacob(3), Sebastian(2), Anthony(1)] the third child of Ensign Henry LOOP and Nelly SHARP was born on August 7, 1767 and christened, October 21, 1767, at Schaghticoke, Rensselaer County, New York. He was not christened with a middle name or initial, but probably adopted the custom (common in the Loop family) of using the initial of his father's first name as his own middle initial. He married about 1790, possibly at Schoharie, Rebecca GILBERT. She was born about 1772. Their first child was born in 1792 in Hadley, Saratoga County, NY. In 1800 they were censused in Washington County. Sometime near 1806 they moved to Johnstown, Montgomery County, NY, where they were censused in 1810. About 1813, they moved again, this time to Cayuga County. There at Auburn, in 1813, Peter H. Loop enlisted in Captain Armstrong's Company of Col. Brown's 23rd Regiment of Infantry for service in the War of 1812. His service in this unit is clouded. In the affidavit he filed at age 83 seeking a land bounty for his service, he claims he was left sick along a road in St. Lawrence County, NY, that he was reported as dead, and that that is why he never received his discharge. An official investigating his application, however, found that Peter had been reported, not as dead, but as having deserted. The land bounty was denied. Peter H. Loop moved his family to Ohio shortly after the War of 1812. About 1816, they came on a raft via the Allegany and Ohio Rivers to Cincinnati. By the 1820 census, they had settled in Clermont County, Ohio. Around 1828 they moved to Perrysburg, Wood county, Ohio, where several of the children married and settled, and where his son James drowned in the Maumee River. Between 1830 and 1840 Peter moved to Woodville, Sandusky county, Ohio. Rebecca died April 9, 1841, probably in Woodville. Peter H. Loop died June 9, 1855, and is buried in at the cemetery in Woodville. His tombstone inscription reads:

Peter Loop, Jr., Pvt NY Militia, Rev War, 1766 - 1855

He moved with his family to Johnstown, Montgomery County, NY, about 1806, and there served a seven year apprenticeship with a printer.

He became a part owner and operator of a wool carding, dyeing, and cloth dressing mill. He was inducted into the order of Free and Accepted Masons at Throopville. About 1824 he moved his family to Wayne County, NY, where they were censused in 1830. In 1835 they moved to Pontiac, Oakland County, Michigan. There he farmed until 1858, when they moved again, this time to Lake Township, Wood County, Ohio, where they were censused near his brother Phillip in 1860. In 1861 he made his final move, to Shiawassee County, Michigan. He purchased a farm in Bennington on the town line road between Bennington and Owosso. His first wife died of typhoid fever, November 20, 1863, in Owosso, Shiawassee County, Michigan. He married (2) Sophia CARY. She was born about 1799.

Jacob Loop and two of his wives are buried in the Maple River Cemetery in Corunna, Shiawassee Township, Shiawassee County, Michigan. His third wife died September 28, 1893, at Leslie, Ingham County, Michigan.

"In the month of September 1853, in two covered wagons we moved from Preble County, Ohio, to Howard County, Indiana. Elijah Loop was an infant in Mother's arms. The writer of this was seven years old. Though seventy-five years ago every detail in leaving a pleasant home rushes before me. Grandmother's orchard, our dear little schoolmates who bid us good by with tears streaming from our eyes, with words that we were going so far away that we would never see each other again. Our tears seemed to multiply when we landed in the wilderness 1 1/4 miles North of Greentown, Howard county, Indiana. Though many years have passed, I see the two covered wagons moving slowly away as our hearts break almost at the parting scene. Our black and white spotted cow, Barney by name, hitched to the hindmost wagon not acting in a friendly manner, rather unwilling to be led like an animal to slaughter. This cow in our young lives had an important part to play in settling and nourishing a large family in a new country. Every morning and evening, Mother would milk Barney, and our chief feed was mush and milk, always for our evening meal. Long years after living in our adopted house mush and milk played a great part in giving us children health and rosy cheeks. Barney lived with us a long time and when she left us by death, great floods of tears flowed from every eye in our large family. She served us well."

The following is excerpted from the Biographical and Genealogical History of Cass, Miami, Howard, and Tipton Counties, Indiana, 1898:

Joseph Marsh Loop in his boyhood days received a limited education in the subscription schools of the frontier district in which he lived, and his earliest recollections are of working in the clearing and helping to cultivate the crops. As he grew older he became expert in the use of the ax. There was no one in the whole settlement who could split more rails in a day than he could. He also learned to make half-bushel measures of wood, and at this he worked more or less for forty years... After marriage Mr. and Mrs. [Joseph Marsh] Loop settled on a tract of seventeen acres of land in Preble county, purchased with money she received as her portion of her father's estate, and there they lived for thirteen years. Their next move was to Howard county, Indiana, when this county was for the most part covered with primitive forest. Selecting a location a mile and a half north of Greentown, Mr. Loop entered eighty acres of government land, from which he cleared the timber and to which he has from time to time added until he now has a fine farm of four hundred acres, under a high state of cultivation and with first-class buildings and other improvements thereon... Mr. Loop assisted largely in building the United Brethren house of worship at Greentown and is liberal in his support of the organization. Politically he is a republican. Mr. Loop has many pleasant reminiscences of his pioneer life, and has both an instructive and entertaining way of relating them.

According to the report in the Hoosier Democrat, "Dr. Loop of Deer Creek, who has been addicted to the opium habit for years, died Wednesday from the effect of a dose of this drug; taken presumably with suicidal intent. He was found in a stupor at his home Monday afternoon and Dr. Planke was called, and later Dr. Loop of Kokomo, a brother of the deceased physician was summoned, but they could do nothing to revive him. We learn that he had injected cocaine into his arm and had then swallowed a combination of opiates. Every effort to rouse him was in vain and after a sleep of forty-eight hours, during which he was in convulsions, he died Wednesday at 2 o'clock." His widow remarried to James W. CRETCHER. She died in 1942.
