Loomis: email from Laury Huey Nov 2006

I just read the 154 page probate for Loomis that I received yesterday, including his will. In it, he provided for the support of his parents after his death and expressed the wish that they remain with Sarah. Eventually, Sarah took her children to Galesburg to be educated at Knox College. Perhaps that is why the parents are not with her in the 1881 census. The probate records indicate payments, first to Sarah and then Mrs. Venn, for the 'old folks.' Eventually, there are pay outs from the estate to cover the funeral expenses of both. Also included are accountings for the estate on Palace of Trade letterhead and detailed inventories of the stock.
