Charles L Bloom Chilton Times January 14, 1912
On Saturday forenoon, Jan. 7, Charles Ludwig Bloom, one of the best known residents of the western portion of Calumet county, died at the home of his son-in-law, Christ Burg in Brothertown at the age of seventy-nine years and one month. Mr. Bloom had been in failing health for about a year past but was a man of strong constitution and was up and around, taking numerous long walks, until some five weeks ago when he was obliged to remain more closely to the house. The morning of his death he was up and dressed himself and was about the house until two hours before the summons came.
Charles Ludwig Bloom was born in Brietzig, Prussia, Germany, Dec. 7th, 1831. His parents were well to do people and owned large tracts of land and as a boy he assisted in looking after the estate. At the age of eighteen years he entered the Prussian army and served three years. In 1854 he came to America and located at Buffalo, N. Y., where he remained about a year and a half. While a resident of Buffalo he was married at Niagara Falls in 1855, to Barbara Mahringer and the same year they came to Wisconsin and located at Sheboygan where Mr. Bloom secured a position as foreman over a crew of men who were at work on the Sheboygan and Green Bay plank road. In 1857 in the company with the Pingels and Wiechmanns he came to this county and purchased land in South Stockbridge which is now owned by John Hemauer and E. Nickel. Later he sold that farm and purchased a lot at Johnson's landing, now owned by Aug. Schaefer. In 1875 he sold this farm and purchased what is know as the Laton Dick farm in the town of Brothertown, which is not owned by his son Charles.
Mr. Bloom, from the time he came to this country until his death, took considerable interest in his adopted country and as he was of more than ordinary intelligence became well posted on all topics of the day. In 1864 he joined Company K of the Fourth Wisconsin Cavalry and after serving a short time was transferred to company F of the same regiment. He was an excellent soldier and was universally respected for his courage and bravery. For many years he was a member of the J. B. Sweet GAR Post of Stockbridge. Over thirty years ago he became affiliated with the Masonic lodge of this city in which he was recognized as an honest, conscientious member.
His funeral took place on Wednesday from the home, Rev. A. O. Nuss of Stockbridge officiated.
He is survived by a widow, three sons, Edward of Sagle, Idaho, Charles of Brothertown and John of Stockbridge and five daughters, Mrs. Samuel Aebischer of Mill Center, Mrs. Chas. Groetzinger of this city, Mrs. Christ Burg of Brothertown, Miss Anna Stockbridge and Miss Emma of Seattle, Wash.
