As Brother of Thomas Bliss of Rehoboth Massachusetts, he is the George Bliss of Newport Rhode Island whose son John married the daughter of Governor Benedict Arnold I and so is related to the both hero and traitor Benedict Arnold V, according to Aaron Tyler Bliss in Genealogy of the Bliss Family in America, Vol. 1.
