Joyce [May 2011]
Thank you for providing information on the Tri County area. It is quite helpful especially as I research my Bliss heritage on my Grandmothers side of the family.
I noticed that for my Great Great Great Uncle Lyman Bliss on page B-16 of the 2007 Nelson cemetery listing Lyman does not have a birth date, death date, or age though it does note he served with the 207th Penn. Infantry in the Civil War. He and my Great Great Grandfather Joseph D Bliss joined and served in the same fighting unit together.
I also looked for an obituary on your site and it does have his. According to it he died Oct. 28, 1907 at the age of 61. He was born on 04 Dec 1845 in New York. Had he lived he would have been 62 in Dec, and that is consistent with the information I have.
The question is can this information be added in to the cemetery posted record?
I would appreciate you looking into this. Thank you so much.
