Robert J. Bloomer
George Bloomer
During the early 1880s the sons of George Bloomer (1808-1883) George, Anderson & David continued their father’s prosperous river business. The boys worked for their father on their schooner scows Three Sisters and the Corsair. The brothers also build a scow schooner and constructed a dock on the Hackensack River at River Edge. On August 1, 1893 their scow and load of brick sank while tied to their dock. It took a week to unload the bricks and raise the scow. Benjamin Westervelt recorded that he, Anderson Bloomer and Jacob Van Wagoner were contracted to recover the cargo of a sunken steamer near the Undercliffs. According to Benjamin the trio worked all winter recovering copper sheets, knives, and steel bars. Other cargo was apparently smuggled to friends. The Crowley got two barrels of Almonds, the Allisons two barrels of cranberries and Ben got a box of soap. During the “great flood” of October 16, 1901 George and Anderson Bloomer lost cordwood, coal and lumber stored at their Hackensack dock.

Can you tell me where you found the photo of Mark and Catharina Stoebener? I am a great great grand daughter of Markus' brother. Would I be able to get a copy of this? Thank you so much!
