Obituary, from Port Gibson Herald, June 22, 1843:
"Israel Loring, Esq, departed this life in the 75th year of his age. The deceased was a native of Sudbury, Massachusetts, from whence he removed in the year 1789, to Marietta, Ohio, then a frontier post in the wilderness, where for some time he acted as Commissary in the Army under the command of Gen. Wayne. In 1803 he removed to this county (then just formed), and erected the first frame dwelling in this town. He has since resided here, and by industry and energy acquired a large estate. His remains were accompanied to the tomb by the Masonic Fraternity (of which he was an honored member), and a large concourse of citizens."
