I am researching my gg-grandfather Nathan Purse BLISS who was born in 1812, his Civil War records say Genesee, New York (not sure if it was Genesee County). I first find him 16 April 1843 when he married Aberillah HAINES at LaPorte County. Aberillah was the daughter of James HAINES and Mary Polly PHILLIPS. Nathan and Aberillah's children were: Marion Elisha BLISS (my g-grandfather); George W BLISS; Amanda Claranda BLISS BALLIETT WILKINSON; Alice G BLISS FIELDS; Thomas BLISS; James Jospeh BLISS; Josephine Mary BLISS MURPHY (twin of James); and Alta Jane BLISS HOLTON. All the children were born in LaPorte County, except Alta who was born in Benton County, Iowa.
I am looking for information on Nathan prior to his marriage in 1843. Info on parents or siblings. Gordon C. Nagle Sr.
