[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.  Information was
received from Barbara (Bishop) Fort - Margaret J (Bishop) Fullerton,

        Poindexter Clement was a step-brother of Samuel C. and Jack Bishop.
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

        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:

John A Bishop married three times.  We are connected through the second
marriage to Melvina Newlee:  ARA, VERA, GLENWOOD, MILRED, RUTH, ROSS,

        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.
