Reported wounded, May 5, 1864.
Burlington Daily Times (Burlington, Vermont) December 17, 1864: "In the list of Vt soldiers, who are reported as having died in prison in Georgia are Henry Labounty and Robert Rankin of Burlington and Frederick H. Bliss of Colchester." Other Vermont newspapers printed a similar report, but suggested that Frederick died "deranged".

On June 24, 1865, a "corrected list of names of Vermonters who died at Andersonville, Georgia, while prisoners of war" was printed in the Burlington Daily Times. That list states Frederick died from being "Scorbutic" (affected by scurvy), and that he was interred in grave 5728.
