This is not to say that this man has anything to do with the Pennsylvania  

BLOOM Families.  But many families went to Pa. out of New York and 

Ephraim was born in Pennsylvania.  His parents came from somewhere,



      Ephraim BLUM (now BLOOM) 13 November 1728 - 17 November 1828 104

yrs 4 da. (buried Tompkins Co. DAR and obit) 

      We know that Ephraim BLOOM paid tax in Lower Smithfield,

Northampton Co., now Monroe County, Pa. in 1785 on 30 acres of land, 2

horses, and 3 head of cattle in the amount of f15.5.0

      We also know that Ephraim BLOOM was a sponsor for Ephraim s/o

Egbert and Maria KRAIMS 4 May bpt. 6 Oct 1782 Hamilton Union Ref. Ch.

Northampton Co., Pa. and for the children of his sons in Evangelical United Cong.  

The above marriages are from Evangelical United Congregations of Milton and Scipio, 

Lansing Township, Tompkins County, NY. (DAR vol 33 pg 105-6) Maria was probably 

their daughter and possibly their first born.

      According to DAR Records Ephraim married second Elizabeth (LONG)

but it must have been after 3 Mar 1800 when he and Catharine were

sponsors for  Abraham and Margaret (LABAR) BLOOM's children and sometime

after 10 Oct 1800 since that is when her husband William LABAR died.



      Who is Daniel BLUM with wife Maria Northampton Co. Pa. (or David)

      1749 - 5 May 1819 DAR.  Are he and Ephraim brothers?

       Johann Melchior, probably son of Johan Philip and Eva Catharina (-)

BOSSART born 8 December 1745 in Pennsylvania and died in Northampton, now

Monroe County, Pennsylvania 9 February 1830. He married there first, 

Margaretha Catharina, who died after 4th of May 1794 in Hamilton Township, 

Northampton County, Pennsylvania.  

      After the death of Margaretha, Melchior married Veronica, called

Fronica (HELLER) CONRAD, the widow of Peter CONRAD.  They 

married sometime after the birth of granddaughter Fronica Merwin and before the 

birth of their son, Melchior.  (see church records for Peter Conrad) 

      Melchior, a Revolutionary War Soldier, paid taxes in 1772 on 300 

acres of land, owned 3 horses and 5 head of cattle and his proprietary 

tax was f2. 0. 4 shillings. (DAR)

      The probable children of Johan Philip and Eva Catharina BOSSART

family would probably consist of Melchior, Henrich, Michael (who was the

"overseer"  of J. Simon HELLER's will in 1797 and was the guardian in

Christopher KELLER's will 1795.) and Christina w/o Christopher KELLER.

and probably others.  If we followed them as sponsors in the churches in

Norhampton County, we could piece their family together.

                          Which Wood Burns Best?

                  Beech wood fires are bright and clear

                       If the logs are kept a year.

                  Chestnut's only good, they say,

                       If for long it's laid away.

                  Birch and fir logs burn too fast,

                       Blaze up bright and do not last.

                  Elm wood burns like a churchyard mould;

                       E'en the very flames are cold.

                  Poplar gives a bitter smoke,

                       Fills your eyes and makes you choke

                  Apple wood will scent your room

                       With an incense like perfume.

                  Oak and maple, if dry and old,

                       Keep away the winter cold.

                  But ash wood wet and ash wood dry,

                       A King shall warm his slippers by.
