Hi Valerie - I noticed that you mentioned a couple of people named John Bloom from England in your posting and I would like to learn more information about them.
I am looking to find out more information about John Bloom b. ca. 1810-1820 from England who was mentioned as the father of a daughter named Mary Jane Bloom b. 25 Jan 1847 in Ireland. The mother of this child was Ann Weir or Weyre b. ca. 1822 from Ireland.
I think that all 3 of these people moved to Norfolk Co., Ontario, Canada in about 1850.
Please let me know if you know anything about this family with reference to your Bloom family research.
