Luther served in the Revolutionary War from Connecticut as a private, enlisting for a period of three years beginning May 30, 1777. Why Luther Loomis was Called Col. or Capt. Loomis in his later years in not known. As he was the proprietor of his own business, the title may have been honorary. He served in the Connecticut State Legislature from 1800-09 and was a principal stockholder in the Western Reserve Company and speculated in the Ohio country after the Revolutionary War. He and other businessmen from Suffield formed an association called the Beaver Land Company. In the spring of 1797 after a surveying party fixed the limits of Portage County, Ohio, the Beaver Land Company drew and then purchased lands in T5R8 and T5R9. 1


Luther Loomis was born well before independence so that he felt the rule of England in America. He was witness to many of the events that led to and occurred during the Revolutionary War. He was alive when political parties came into existence and saw the events leading to the War of 1812, although he never lived to see it to a conclusion. What an exciting time for a person to have lived. 1

from the St. Lawrence Republican Wednesday, April 6, 1910:

Massena, march 30 -- Twenty-eight years ago last summer two lads from Brasher Falls, Walter Holcomb Page and Arthur Holcomb, aged 14 and 12 years respectively, left their homes to seek their fortunes and started on a long hike to the far West. The Page lad was a son of Lewis Page, and the Holcomb boy was a son of Theron Holcomb, both well known residents of Brasher. Nothing was heard of them for several weeks when the Holcomb lad became sick in Missouri and friends there telegraphed to his parents to send him money to come home, which they did, and he arrived home a week later. Young Holcomb told of the wanderings of the two boys, how they walked until tired out, begging food when they could, finally stealing rides on freight cars. At one time they became so hungry that they stole a hen and ate the meat without cooking. This Holcomb boy is now Dr. Arthur Holcomb, a prominent physician of Crompton, Cal.

When young Holcomb came home Page refused to come and the boys parted company, Page going further West to make his fortune, saying he would not come home until he had made his "strike." From that time not a word had been heard from him and he was given up for dead.

Twenty years ago his father died leaving some property, which was left to his wife and children. Mrs. Page died about ten years ago, leaving two daughters, Agnes and Alberta, who are now living in Lowell, Mass. After the mother's death the property was sold and the proceeds divided, one share, amounting to about $1,000, being left in the hands of the county treasurer for the missing son, Walter, should he turn up before the statutory time elapsed, otherwise the money to revert to his sisters.

About a month ago Postmaster b. A. Babcock, of Brasher Falls, received a letter addressed "Postmaster, Brazier Falls, N.Y.," written by a woman and signed "Walter Page," from Tonopah, Nev., asking for information as to his family. Mr. Babcock was suspicious because the name of Brasher was wrongly spelled and he knew Walter Page would know how to spell the name of his native town correctly, so he wrote for further information. A couple of weeks later he received another letter from Page, giving information which only a native of the place could give, also names of persons living there at the time and reciting events that happened at that time, so that Mr. Babcock was convinced that it was really Walter Page who was writing, then he gave him the information asked for and the addresses of his sisters.

The sisters are delighted to find that their brother is alive and now Walter is coming East this spring and his sisters will meet him at the old home. If they are then satisfied as to his identity they will renounce all claims to the money deposited with the county treasurer and the long lost brother will receive his share of his father's estate.
