I've uploaded two new-to-me newspaper articles about Blunden to our history blog.
We urgently need a photo for our next book. Can you help me locate a photo of Blunden?

If you need a better picture than this..
Get a Shovel!!
That's Samuel A. Blunden's grave. Not Simon O Blunden's grave. Your either can't read or you have no research talent.

You're the one who can`t find a Picture of Simon O.Blunden.
I`m recovering from major Eye Surgery, I`m friggin half blind right now.
I think most people would give me a pass, for not getting the middle initial right.
Even with really bad eyesight, I got closer than you did.....LOL!!
Didn't get the first name right either, but I am sympathetic over your eyes. I had cataract surgery at an early age. It's miserable.
Got closer than I did? I found his real grave on find-a-grave. I have a large file of material on his life and a decent biography of him. YOU found SAMUEL and who knows who THAT is .... Good job.

Couldn`t be any worse than all the other surgerys.

Are the surgeries helping? My vision is still impaired in my left eye. You may be full of cr*p but I am sorry you're going through eye-health problems.
I find him mentioned in:
Harvest Siftings II
Blunden Simon O. clerk, h 443 E. 80th
Same listing for the New York Public Library color scan (better quality).
He wrote in to a news paper to publish a challenge:
He then bumped up the challenge prize from $50 to $100!
The Insurance Press No. 1,062 - Vol. XLII New York, Wednesday, January 12, 1916 pg 15 under New Jersey lists the payout from his life insurance policy at the time of his death.
Bloomfield: Simon O. Blunden.. 2,258
Are the surgeries helping?
1st one was a failure.
2nd one worked but I needed a 3rd to remove the oil that kept the retina stable.
It`s all done while you`re awake, it`s painful, unpleasant and freaky.
Stitches in the eyeball, Laser cauterizing/burning.
The oil created a cataract, it`s like a thick oil slick.
If my retina Dr. likes the way my eye healed, I`ll be referred to a cataract Dr.
All that for a Thump on the Head.
Makes me wonder if I`m one of those people who should wear a helmet 24/7...LOL!!
wifi, stellar research. thanks
outlaw: I wish you well with future surgeries.
