Obituary

Col. E. J. Bliss

Col. Edgar J. Bliss, a native of Vermont, died in a hospital in West Newton, Mass, very unexpectedly, and within an hour after being admitted as a patient, November 23, 1906, at the age of 64 years.

Colonel Bliss enlisted as a private in Co. G, Twelfth Regiment Infantry, Vermont Volunteers, August 14, 1862, and was mustered out of the service, July 14, 1863, by reason of expiration of term of service. At the time of his death he was a member of Gettysburg Post, No. 193, G.A.R., Boston, of the Vermont Veterans Association of Boston and vicinity, also a member of the Vermont Association Boston. He was born in Brandon, and had lived there very many years of his life and succeeded his father as a merchant. He is survived by a wife, a son of sixteen years and two brothers. He previously married Miss Bingham, of Shoreham long since dead.
