Andrew Bloom volunteered and was enlisted on August 21, 1862 as a Captain in Co., K., 52nd Regiment, O.V.I (Dan McCook's Regiment) in Cincinnati, Ohio. This regiment fought at the Battle of Perryville. He resigned and was mustered out on January 8, 1863 at Nashville, Tennessee, due to illness.

After the war, he married Eliza Lida, the daughter of Leroy and Martha Wilson Doolin. The couple were the parents of a daughter, Lida L. Bloom. He was widowed in 1868 and his daughter, Lida, was raised by her maternal grandmother.

He married Elizabeth Renaker on April 7, 1869 in Henry County, Kentucky. She passed away in April of 1870 and their child died in July of 1870. (It is unclear if Renaker was her maiden name, or a surname from a previous marriage).

Andrew married Margaret, the daughter of Benjamin and Margaret Coyle Allen. The couple were the parents of Laura, Ada Victoria, Bertie and Corinne Bloom. Mr. Bloom, initially, supported his family by working as a liquor dealer. Later, he worked as a notary public and as a pension agent. Mr. Bloom passed away from the effects of endocarditis and was laid to rest, at Lexington Cemetery, with full military honors.
