Isaac Newton Loofboro, eldest son of Davis and Mary Loofboro, was born in Clarke County, Ohio, July 12, 1832, and died in Welton, Iowa, September 14, 1907.
In 1850, his parents moved from Ohio and settled in Farmington, Ill., where they remained eight years.
In 1858, he with his parents moved to Iowa, locating in the vicinity of Welton.
With the exception of a few years' residence at Milton, Wis., and at Boulder, Colo., Welton has been his place of residence for almost fifty years.
In 1861, he enlisted in the 8th Iowa Volunteers, serving three years, being mustered out with his regiment. He was in the battle of Shiloh and in several other severe engagements.
In 1856, he was united in marriage with Lucy J. Van Horn, who only lived a short time after their marriage. In 1863, he was married to Annie M. Davis who, with two of the five children born to them, Horace R. and Lewis L., survive to mourn their loss.
He early professed faith in the Savior and throughout his life continued a consistent Christian.
Prayer was his great comfort during his last illness. He would often call the members of his family around his bed, and ask each one to offer prayer, in which exercise he too would engage. This he would do also when any of his Christian associates called on him.
In his death the church has met another great loss, the community a well-wisher, and his country a loyal citizen. He was interested in all civic and moral reforms, and longed to see this country rid itself of serious evils. G. W. B.
Note: Resided at Milton, Wisconsin from about 1889 to about 1895.
