Daughter of Samuel & Julia (Alfson) Bloom, both born in Sweden and recent immigrants to America.

This story comes from my family book. "The oldest daughter was old enough to begin to teach school (age 21). One day Pearl, with her brother Frank, went into the pasture to drive in the horses so she could rope one and ride to the county seat (Alexandria, 10 miles away) where she planned to take the teachers examination. A small thunder cloud was passing overhead, and she was struck by lightening as she road along. She was burned to a crisp. Frank was badly hurt and nearly smothered as he fell face down in the dirt."

Pearl was originally interned on a hill above the family farm, but later moved to Greenhill.
