Mary Ann (Spears-Bishop) Clement [Not sure who the *Dorthy mentioned in the information is. Could it be wife of Wilford G. Bishop? Obviously there was a lot of inter-marriage between these various families.

Samuel C. and Jack were full brothers. Poindexter Clement and Charles Clement were half-brothers (had the same father but different mothers). Charles Clement was a half-brother to Samuel and Jack. Mary Ann was the step-mother of Poindexter Clement. Poindexter Clement and Samuel C. Bishop married sisters. Samuel married Alice Hayden and Poindexter married Martha Hayden. This is how we connect: Poindexter Clement - Martha Hayden had four children: William, Alice, Hollis, Everett. (HOLLIS -- ALICE -- *DOROTHY). Samuel Bishop - Alice Hayden had 10 sons: Harry, Jim, Eluide, Howell, Roy, Clarence, Wilford, Addison, John and 1 died at birth. (HOWELL -- MILDRED: VIRGINIA, BARBARA, CALVIN). John A Bishop married three times. We are connected through the second marriage to Melvina Newlee: ARA, VERA, GLENWOOD, MILRED, RUTH, ROSS, RUTH -- LEE. Charles Clement married Ellen Minter. The 8(?) children: Beverly, Charles (Fruity), Calvin, Joe (Ned), Harris (Tubby), Ruth (Dick), Frances (Fran), Dorthy, CALVIN -- LORENE. To Mildred, Virginia, Barbara, and Calvin --- my great-grandfather (Poindexter) and their grandfather (Samuel C.) were step-brothers. Also my great-grandmother (Martha Hayden) and their grandmother (Alice Hayden) were sisters. To Lee --- my grandfather (Poindexter) was a step-brother to her grandfather (Jack). Ned Clement told me that Indians killed a husband of Mary Ann's and she buried him in a hollow log. He thought in the Shamrock vicinity. Maybe it was her first husband, Mr. Wingfield.
