Jim Gritzbaugh took the picture

Matthew Bloom born in Germany died in Minden Oct. 15, 1847

It is interesting that there was once a brickyard on this property.

Is it possible that some of the bricks on the Minden streets were once

made on this spot?

                      These boys appear to be grandsons of Matthew Bloom

Matthew  Bloom, son of S & C. E. Bloom born Sept. 8, 1866 died Apr. 10, 1867

James son of S & C. E.  Bloom born and died Feb. 4 1868

Are these the children of Sebastian Bloom? If so, his home is pictured on

the Residential/Home site?
