When he was in his late 20's early 30's he and his son were bit by a rabbid dog.Unfortunately Sanders didn't survive however his son Floyd did ( he was around 8 years old ). Floyd's mother remarried and had two more children. One was a girl and one a boy. These two were Floyd's half brother and sister. His half brother's grandson's name Harry Clayton Lakin. (We have not found out what the 1/2 brother and sister's names were as of yet. ) Floyd Bloss married and had ten children. Shortly after the last child was born his wife passed away and he remarried.

The family is from Wayne County, WV and has their own family cemetary. There are still some Bloss kinfolk living in Wayne County. They usually have an annual family reunion however the last family reunion we attended was 10 years ago. We are family to Nettie Jean Bloss who married Ernest Lee Shank.

Sandi Bloss My name is Sandi (Sandra) Bloss and I moved to New Zealand from the UK in July 2007. I live with my husband (Edward Dean) and our three children. The rest of my family are still in the UK, mainly in East Anglia and Wales. Originally, I believe, the Bloss's arrived in the UK from France - a place called Blois. Anyhow, it's great to see other Bloss's as I think I am the only one in NZ! And, apart from my UK family, there weren't many of us there either.
