Here is the info on David Loop's family from my book "The Loop Family in America". The book is available in most genealogical libraries in the US and you may contact me to purchase a photocopy. There were two Emma Campbells who married Loops. This (see last child below) is apparently the one you are looking for. - Vick Bennison
