He was honorably discharged July 23, 1863, when he returned to his farm at Jericho for a time, later moving to a farm in Johnson, where his wife died 35 years ago. After remaining in Johnson for 15 years, he came to Morristown and had lived for 32 years on the present Bliss farm, now owned by his son, L. E. Bliss, with whom he has made his home. Mr. Bliss attended the Memorial Sunday service, but was unable to attend the Memorial day service and had not been able to be out since that day.
