ATB's Genealogy of the Bliss Family in America (1982) -Ben M. Angel


Previously, the date of death for Margaret (Lawrence) Bliss was given as 4/6/1621 in Springfield MA, but the Wikipedia page for Springfield, MA states that it was settled on May 14, 1636, it also is the same currently listed death date/location for Margaret (Lawrence) Lawrence/Hulins which is also unlikely and given that the arrival of Hartford co-founder Thomas Bliss (Sr. in US and son of Margaret (Lawrence) Bliss) and Margaret (Hulins) Bliss (daughter of Margaret (Lawrence) Hulins) did not arrive in Boston until about 1637 (Aaron Tyler Bliss). Thus the death date August 19, 1684 for Margaret (Lawrence) Bliss given by the link:

[http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~scanderson/thomas_bliss.HTM]

should be more likely.

Floyd Bliss Hanson, 9th great grandson of both Margaret Lawrences.
