MRS HELEN F BLOOM, widow of August Bloom, who died in 1882, is a daughter of Dr. Oscar and Ferdinand (Wiede) Hunger, the former of whom died in November, 1895, leaving his widow with six children. Mrs Helen F Bloom was born in Dearborn county, Ind., and was married to Mr Bloom February 16, 1870, and is the mother of five living children, viz: Elizabeth, Almer, Carolina, Irene and Oscar. Mr Bloom was a groceryman in Aurora and continued in that business from his young days up to the time of his death. He served in the Thirty-second regiment, Indiana volunteer infantry, and was wounded in the battle of Chickamauga. He came home in 1865, after the war, and resumed the grocery business, which he followed, as stated, until death. Miss Elizabeth Bloom is a first class musician and has taught music of a high order in Cincinnati as well as at home. She is not strong, however, and, being yet very young, has preferred to teach at home. Mrs Bloom owns property in Aurora valued at some $5,000, and the old homestead commands a view of the finest scenery of Aurora, looking up and down the great Ohio river for miles and miles. All of the family are members of St. Mary`s church.
