Howard County, IN Biographies





J. N. LOOP, son of Joseph M. and Margaret Loop, was born in Preble County, Ohio, September 25, 1845. He lived in his native county on a farm until he was eight years old, when he removed with his parents to Howard County, and located on a farm near Greentown, where his father still resides. He early learned the hardships of a life in the wilderness, but he availed himself of all the educational advantages of his time. He was a student in the common schools, in the Kokomo High School, and in the Northwestern College at Naperville, Ill. He was an earnest seeker for knowledge, and having acquired a good education, began life as a teacher in the common schools of Howard County in 1866. He has taught successfully seventeen terms of school, and ranks among the oldest and best teachers of the county. He early learned from his father the trade of making grain measures. This business he has followed during almost every summer season for twenty years. He is now engaged extensively in this business at Kokomo, and is sole proprietor and manufacturer of the Hoosier Brand of Measures. During the years of 1873 and 1874, he traveled all over the West for the Western Publishing House of Chicago. Mr. Loop was married, May 30, 1878, to Miss Emma A Johnson, daughter of Dr. H. Johnson, of Howard County. He has always been a strong Republican and he and his wife are active members of the Methodist Espiscopal Church.
