Bloss Family Photos
  • Richard Bloss writes,
    "I am fortunate to have had a close tie to Etta Bloss, my great aunt. Who was born in SPringboro, lived in Miamisburg and in about 1920 moved to Carmonte (Southern Hills) and died there in 1960. at 84.  She paid for and had installed the stone you see for her parents R. Harrison and Mary C. Bloss Etta and her sister are on the other side "Etta and Luvenia". Etta and Luvenia cared for the parents and never married. I got most of Etta's family pics, album and other docs when she died.
    More Family:
    "Olinger. he once ran the tavern at Red Lion
    Hayner married into Bloss
    thanks to a woman, now dead, at the Springboro Historical, know the locations and have pictures of many of our original homes..
    First family came from Elkton VA ara in 1832, more in 1834 and more in 1855. "
