Major Frank Bloom was born in the State of New York, and became a citizen of Macon about the year 1840. For many years he was a prominent and efficient officer in the Fire Department of our city. When the war opened, he joined the Jackson Artillery, and was ordered to St. Simond's Island, and after spending a season there in defense of the coast, he went to Virginia, and became an Aid of Gen. H. R. Jackson. He served in the artillery campaign in Western Virginia, and won laurels for his gallantry and zeal in the service.-- When Gen. Jackson was returned to Georgia, this bold cavalier was made chief of his staff, with the rank of Major, and it was while he was visiting his friends in this place that he was seized with an attack of pneumonia, the result of exposure in the service, which terminated his life in about the fortieth year of his age. The Major was a man of generous impulses, of much public spirit, of true patriotic fervor, and or great geniality of temper, and his death will long be deplored by a large circle of devoted friends and admirers."
