Santa Clarita Valley History In Pictures

George Blum.


George Blum passed away Sunday, July 31, at 10:10 P.M. He was born in Switzerland, October 9, 1861. Came to the United States in 1880. He was married in 1889 to Magdalena Greutman. To them were born six children. He is survived by his wife, two sons, Geo. J. and Wm. O., and four daughters, Mrs. Frieda Krawit, Mrs. Alma Haller and Misses Bertha and Emma, and four grandchildren. Mr. Blum was a pioneer of Los Angeles where he made his residence in 1889, and one of the pioneers of Acton where he has resided since 1891. Being a stonecutter by trade he had a large part in the building of the Los Angeles court house. He demonstrated his skill in that he has built a hillside farm that is not only noted for its farm products, but the buildings which will ever stand as monuments.


Rev. H. Hood of Palmdale officiated. Mr. Walfred Johnson and W. McAdams gave short talks. The Acton church was filled with Mr. Blum's host of friends. There were many beautiful floral tributes to his memory.
