BLOEDE, Marie, author, b. of a noble family in Silesia, in 1821; d. in Brooklyn, N. Y., 12 March, 1870. Her brother, Friedrich von Sallet, was a poet of merit and an intense liberal in his political views, who died in 1843. His sister shared his poetical gifts and his liberal sympathies. She married early, and in opposition to the wishes of her family, Dr. G. Bloede, and in the revolution of 1848 her husband, foremost in the liberal ranks, was arrested, tried, and condemned to death, at Dresden, but escaped to the United States. Her poems and articles, both in English and German, attracted attention. Her husband, as the editor of the “New-Yorker Demokrat,” a daily republican paper, received assistance from her literary labors.
