Samuel A Bishop (1786-1864) was born in Albemarle County, Virginia. On 19 February 1816 in Albemarle county he married Sarah "Sally" Via (1788-1840). All of their children seem to have been born in Albemarle County before in 1835 (19 years later) they moved to Montgomery County, Missouri. Samuel's father and mother, James and Elizabeth Bishop, having moved to Albemarle County from Burlington County, New Jersey, in 1782, had lived the remaining years there before their death in 1833. Samuel's sister, Rebecca, also came to Montgomery County apparently with the family. Her tombstone (buried with Samuel, Sarah and Beverley) shows her name to be Rebecca Counts.
