Joseph Loomis
Birth: 1590
Essex, England
Death: Nov. 25, 1658
Hartford County
Connecticut, USA

According to books about this family, Joseph is buried alongside his wife, Mary, on the family homestead in Windsor, Hartford, CT.
Joseph LOOMIS & Mary WHITE came to America with their 8 children on the "SUSAN & ELLEN", one of the earliest ships to America. 11 Apr 1638 set sail from London, ENG. 17 Jul 1638 arrived in Boston. Moved to Windsor, CT in 1639. Findagrave shows 1,840 Loomis memorials, (2,560 LOOMIS memorials, 14 May, nearly a year later), 663 Lomax memorials, 274 memorials and 12 Lumis memorials, all can be traced to Joseph & Mary LOOMIS. (9,003 LOOMIS findagrave memorials as of Oct, 2011)
s/o Agnes LINGWOOD & John LUMMYS of Thaxted & Braintree & Bocking in Essex, ENG
f/o Nathaniel; Joseph; Sarah; Elizabeth; John; Thomas; Mary & Samuel.
Joseph's birthdate is actually unknown, but normally his wife's christening date is used as his birthdate. Also his deathdate is actually the date his will was read. The LOOMIS home is a National Landmark.
One of the most remarkable facts in the history of the house on "The Islands" is that the title has come down through generation after generation by inheritance, and has never been transferred by deed. It is believed to be the oldest homestead now standing in the United States. According to Edward C. Marshall's "Ancestors of General Grant," the Loomis home is the oldest in America, with the exception of the Van Rensselaer homestead at Albany, N.Y. The latter place was a few years older, but it is said that this house has been moved away from Albany, leaving the Loomis homestead alone in its distinction.
