Born to Reuben Foster BLOOD and Relief WHITING at Phillipston, MA, married 1845 in Athol, MA and died 13-Aug-1869 of acute pertonitis. Wife Jane Green was b 1823 in Athol, MA and died in 1903. George was listed as a shipmaster and resided near Taylors Falls. After ten years at sea he settled first in Collinsville, IL. In 1849 he headed for California by the overland route. After 2 or 3 years without much success (presumably hunting for gold), he returned to Collinsville and then moved to Minnesota, where he became successful as a cabinet maker in Taylors Falls. His wife was Jane Green, 1823~1903, who was buried in Highland Cemetery, Athold, MA.

Listed as children in the 1865 MN census were Carrie, Charles, and Lorenzo as family 48 of Taylors Falls Twp. In the cemetery transcriptions George Albert is also listed as a son, b. 20-Apr-1846, d. 14-Nov-1856.

Local resident William H C Folsom had this to add about George Blood. "He had been a seafaring man, later was trained as a joiner, tried farming in Sunrise Twp (1854) but was unsuccessful. He moved to Taylors Falls where he died. He had two sons living in St Paul. After his death in 1869, his family returned to Connecticut."
