His obituary states he was born in Auburn, New York.

From contributor Richard Howell:

He was Surgeon of the 3rd Michigan Infantry during the Civil War. In 1881 he was President James Garfield's doctor after he was shot. It's widely agreed upon that Dr. Bliss and other doctors caused the President's death by probing the wound, causing infection.
