I am researching my gg-grandfather Nathan Purse Bliss. He was born June 1812 in either Chautauqua, Genesee, or Cattaraugus County, New York. He moved to Indiana in 1829. I first find him in LaPorte County, 16 Apr 1843 when he married Aberillah Haines. Their children were: Marion Elisha Bliss (my ggrandfather); George W Bliss; Amanda Claranada Bliss; Alice G Bliss; Thomas Bliss; James Joseph Bliss, Josephine Mary Bliss, and Alta Jane Bliss. All were born in LaPorte County except Alta who was born in Benton County, Iowa.
While researching the Cass County marriages I found the following marriages that may have a link to my Nathan Purse Bliss.
Mary Jane Bliss married George W Train 30 May 1846
Sarah S Bliss married James M Mason 9 Jan 1845
Henry Bliss married Martha Dale 19 July 1845
