He is said to have married his young wife and lived for a time in Hamilton, Ohio. This doesn't seem likely, his marriage to Marie Catherine Schoettle is actually recorded in the Lutheran Church in Collinsville. About 1865 he moved with his wife and children, to a farm in the Lemen settlement east of Collinsville, Illinois.
Christian soon became dissatisfied with farm life. He moved to Collinsville where he opened a hardware store on East Main Street. Here he also followed his trade as a tinsmith.
He purchased a blacksmith shop that also made cowbells from Joseph Moore in 1876. In 1880 at 232 Goethe Street in Collinsville, he began to manufacture stock bells under the name Blum Mfg. Co. The bells were cut to a pattern from sheet steel, pressed together, riveted and brazed with brass. No name was stamped on the bell but each bell had a label "HOLSTEIN BELL, Blum Mfg. Co., Collinsville, Ill., U.S.A." The only difference in cow and sheep bells was the size, sheep bells being much smaller. The bells were shipped all over the world.
In 1949, ninety-five per cent of the bells manufactured were for animal stock. Others were used by orchestras; and even by football and basketball fans.1,12,13,14
