Thanks for the response. I do not have a Phillip Paul Bliss in my family history. However, it could have been a brother or some other relative of Nathan Purse Bliss. When was Phillip born? Where was he born? Nathan was born in New York in 1812/1813. His obituary says he moved in 1829 from Chautauqua/Cattaraugus/or Genesee County to Indiana. I first find him 16 April 1843 (he was 38 yrs old) in LaPorte County when he married Aberillah Haines. His family may have moved first to Cass County. Thanks for any help you can give me.
