Dr. Lafayette Charles Loomis

In 1844, two brothers, Dr. Silas L. Loomis, and Dr. Lafayette Charles Loomis, came from their native town, North Coventry, Connecticut, to North Bridgewater, Massachusetts, and established the Adelphian Academy. Both were graduated Doctors of Medicine from Georgetown College, but neither of them practiced medicine in this county. They were writers of books, teachers in colleges and academies, and men of unusual attainments. Dr. Silas L. Loomis was a soldier in the Civil War.
