According to testimony in his pension file, George F. Blood was born in Stow to parents Sumner and Lena Blood.
George Francis Blood, age 16, a farmer, is recorded in the 1855 Massachusetts State Census for Acton, in household (dwelling no. 247/253) with Sumner and Nancy Blood. Also in the household was his younger brother Charles Henry Blood (Lainhart, 1855 and 1865 Massachusetts State Censuses for Acton: 31.)
George Blood was living in Acton in 1873, but had resettled in Oregon by 1876, where he lived until his death (pension file).
