Barb,
I would be interested in any information you may have found. My G-Grandfather, Casper Pluess was born in 1859 in Canton Aargau Switzerland. He married Marie Kuhn in 1879 and they settled in Kansas. They also changed their name to Bliss.

I only have My G.Grandparents were Fredrick and Caroline Pluess they came to U.S. 1880 with 3 children,Fred,Mary, my G.father Gottlieb. This from family info. I have a intent of naturalization from Lake Co. In. but I can't prove it is my Fred Pluess.I Haven't been able to find anything legal with info, on the family. I do know they were buried in Hammond, In. Can't find cemetery records.They were from Switzerland.My G.parents did live in Omaha Neb.,and Sioux City, Iowa,Then moved Back to Hammond, In., area.So all my info is from My G.father down to my gen. Hope someone can connect with our families..Good Luck..Barb

Hello Barb. Curious if you ever found out more info on Fredrick and Caroline Bluess/Bliss? I am tracing them too. My son-in-law is Matt Bliss, decendant of Earnest Bliss (Gottlieb's brother), born in 1880. They were from Hammond, Lake County, Indiana.

Are you positive on the family name of Pluess?

Switzerland?

What info (if any) have you found out since you posted in 2001?

Thank you. Wendy Winkelman (mother of Kelly Bliss, of Makanda, IL)

I found Fred Bliss ( Pluss or sometimes Pluess) wife was Maria Ott not Caroline. Caroline is his sister as I had thought this for a while.Have proof from Son Fredrick's and Daughter Mary's death certificate also Fredrick's Social Security papers.
