Excerpts of LOOMIS Genealogy —
Selected Descendants of Joseph LOOMIS & Mary WHITE
Source:  Elisha Scott Loomis, ed.  1909.  Descendants of Joseph Loomis in America and His Antecedents in the Old World, the Original Published by Elias Loomis LL.D., 1875.  Self-published, Berea, OH (available as a fascimile reprint from the New England Historic Genealogical Society, Boston, MA; also online at GenealogyLibrary.com).

Some minor changes were made in the format for improved readability.  Note that the author labels the children of the progenitors (i.e., of Joseph Loomis and Mary White) as the "first" generation; I would consider Joseph and Mary to be the first generation and their children the second generation.

126
First Generation

Children of Joseph Loomis [and Mary White]
of Windsor, Connecticut...

Genealogical investigations have been unable to establish definitely the order of the children of Joseph Loomis, and it is considered advisable to give here the conflicting evidence: 

POSSIBLE ORDER OF CHILDREN.
-

1. Mrs. Olmsted..... born 1615..... married 1640
2. Mrs. Hull........ 1617..... 1641
3. Joseph........... 1618..... 1646
4. Mrs. Skinner..... 1620..... 1638
5. John............. 1622..... 1648
6. Thomas........... 1624..... 1653
7. Nathaniel........ 1626..... 1653
8. Samuel........... 1628..... 1653

Probably, however, the order was as follows:

1.  JOSEPH, b. 1615.+

2.  SARAH, b. 1617, m. Sep. 28, 1640, Capt. Nicholas, d. Aug. 1684, son of James and Joyce (Cornish) Olmsted of Hartford, who came in the Lion, arriving at Boston, Sept. 16th, 1633.  He was Capt. in the Pequot war, 1675.  The Olmsted's old family seat in Fairsted, Co. Essex, Eng., still exists.  James Olmsted, "first settler," Hartford, Conn., was bapt. at Great Leighs (or Lees Magna), Co. Essex, Eng., Dec. 4, 1580 (parish register.)  The name of his wife was Joyce Cornish, m. at Great Leighs, Oct. 26, 1605, bur. Eng. Apr. 21, 1621.  James was the son of James, b. 1550, d. Dec. 2, 1595, who m. Aug. 12, 1676, Jane Bristow, he being son of Thomas, b. 1521, who was son of James, b. 1496, the son of John, b. 1470, and Alice Hankley, b. 1473, d. 1533.  See Frederick Law Olmstead (sen.) in his Walks and Talks of an American Farmer in Eng., chap. LII.  Ch'n:

1. Sarah,
[Elizabeth]
2. Mary,
3. Rebecca,
4. John,
5. Samuel,
6. Deac. Joseph,1 ancestor of Frederick E.6 Church (Joseph,5 Dorothy4 [Olmsted], Samuel3 Nehemiah,2 Deac. Joseph1), b. May 4, 1826, a distinguished landscape painter, N.Y. City;† also ancestor of Gen. James S.6 Wadsworth (Naomi5 [Wolcott], Samuel,4 Naomi3 [Olmsted], Deac. Joseph,2 Deac. Joseph1), b. Oct. 30, 1807, Maj. Gen. U.S. Army; also ancestor of Norman6 White (Eunice5 [Stanley], Moses,4 Hannah3 [Olmsted], Deac. Joseph,2 Deac. Joseph1), b. Aug. 8, 1857, Vice-Pres. of Am. Bible Society, N.Y. City; also ancestor of Dr. Aaron L.6 Chapin, (Laura5 [Colton], Elizabeth4 [Olmsted], Ashbel,3 Deac. Joseph2, Deac. Joseph1) b. Feb. 6, 1817, Pres. Beloit Coll, for more than 20 yrs.; and also ancestor of Denison5 Olmsted, (Nathanniel,4 Nathaniel,3 Nicholas,2 Deac. Joseph1) b. June 18, 1791, who executed the first state geological survey in this country and who was a noted meteorologist, a voluminous author, and Prof. Nat. Phil., Yale College.
7. Thomas,
8. Mabel.
He [Capt. Nicholas Olmstead] m. 2nd, Mrs. Mary Lord; he was a military officer and d. Aug. 31, 1684.

3.  ELIZABETH, b. a. 1619, in England; m. Windsor, May 20, 1641, Josiah, eldest child of George Hull, of Windsor.  Mr. Hull was Deputy to the General Court 


†Deac. Joseph,1 ancestor of Frederick E.6 Church (Joseph,5 Dorothy,4 [Olmstead], Samuel,3 Nehemiah,2 Deac. Joseph1) is a symbolic way of saying that Deac. Joseph Olmsted begat Nehemiah Olmsted, who begat Samuel Olmsted, who begat Dorothy Olmsted, who married a man by the name of Church, who begat Joseph Church, who begat Frederick E. Church.  By means of this explanation it is believed the reader will readily translate all such symbolic expressions occuring throughout this work.

Transcriber's Notes:  Loomis overlooked a daughter of Capt. Nicholas Olmsted & Sarah Loomis, namely, Elizabeth Loomis (b. 20 Nov 1642 at Hartford, CT), who married Deac. Samuel Butler.   Oddly enough, and although he mentions him as a source, the author fails to include in the genealogy the most well-known of Deac. Joseph1 Olmsted's descendants, namely,  Frederick6 Law Olmsted (John5, Benjamin4, Jonathan3, Joseph2, Deac. Joseph1), the landscape architect who designed New York City's Central Park.  Deac. Joseph1 married Elizabeth Butler, sister of Deac. Samuel Butler who married Elizabeth Loomis.   Thomas Olmsted was Capt. Nicholas's child with Mrs. Mary Lord, not with Sarah Loomis.

*"Gideon Wells was a descendant of Gov. Thomas Wells, his mother being the dau. of Gideon Hale.  He attended the American Literary, Scientific and Military Academy at Norwich, Vt., where the more important part of his education was acquired.  At 21 was writing stories for New York journals and later entered the office of the Hartford Times.

"In 1827 he was elected to the General Assembly from Glastonbury, being frequently elected thereafter as a democrat.  Not long afterwards the supreme court of the state handed down a decision in the then famous case of Atwood against Welton, of which the result was to bar Universalists from giving testimony in court, the judges holding that no man could qualify as a witness who did not believe in the doctrine of future rewards and punishments.  Wells introduced a bill to eliminate this religious test, but six years elapsed before it was passed. 

"He was comptroller of the state for three or four terms and in 1835 married his cousin, Mary Jane Hale, and settled in Hartford. Though the marriage apparently had nothing to do with it, Wells wrote in his diary that he bought and wore a wig in 1841, wearing a wig from that time on until his death. 

"He was postmaster of Hartford in Jackson's administration and was in Washington in the navy department for three years under President Polk's administration.  He came back to Hartford in 1849 and resumed newspaper work and, late in the 50's, left the democratic party for the republican and founded the Hartford Press.  He was a member of the republican national committee for eight years and first met Abraham Lincoln in this city on March 5, 1860. 

"Lincoln called him to Washington on March 1, 1861, and he assumed his duties as secretary of the navy in Lincoln's cabinet on March 7, 1861.  It was his duty to create a navy, and how well he accomplished the task is shown by the fact that, when he became secretary, the navy had about sixty-five ships and from 600 to 700 men, and at the close of the war it had from 600 to 700 ships and about 50,000 men. He made blunders, as when he rejoiced over the capture of Mason and Slidell who were taken from a British ship and again when he permitted his brother-in-law to accept government contracts. 

"He was present at the deathbed of Lincoln, but remained in Johnson's cabinet, always having a genuine regard for Lincoln's successor.  He returned to Hartford in 1869 and, during the later years of his life, wrote various articles for the Galaxy and its successor, the Atlantic Monthly, dying in this city in February, 1878." [Loomis is obviously quoting someone, but he doesn't say whom.]
