  • Notes 
    • Loring lived in Bernhard's Bay and on Broad Street in Oneida, New York.

      Loring left Ashburnham, Massachusetts when he was twenty years old and settled in Cleveland, New York. There he became interested in the manufacture of glass, in which he was to become successful. For several years he owned an interest in the American Glass Company at Bernhard's Bay. He and his father-in-law, George Cowarden owned the Dunbarton Glass Works in Dunbarton, New York. Dunbarton was a village that once stood on the Erie Canal between State Bridge and Higginsville, but which later disappeared. About 1861, after Mr. Cowarden's death, Loring became sole owner of the Glass Works. His sons also assisted in the operation of the company.

      In about 1877, Loring moved to Broad Street in Oneida, Madison County, New York where he was a trustee of the Oneida Savings Bank and an active member of the banking house of Barnes, Stark and Munroe. He was very interested in the prosperity of the town as evidenced by the Munroe Block, and of the Opera House of which he was a joint owner with Mr. Barnes. He also donated the means to build the Munroe Memorial Chapel at the Glenwood cemetery. He occupied several positions of trust and was held in high esteem by his associates. He erected the building that housed the Farmers & Merchants Bank of which he was president. He represented the old town of Lenox in the County Board of Supervisors.
