        I'd be interested in finding out more about your Bishop line...  can
you tell me more about John Granville Bishop - who his brothers and
sisters (and parents) might have been?...  and the Bishop line to Lewis
Cleveland Bishop too?...  as well as the parents and brothers and
sisters for the Bishops all the way from John Granville down to you?...
do you have any information about how your Bishop ancestors came to be
in Dade County, Missouri?... curiously the name Granville is used by a
number of the Montgomery County Bishops...  so seems like a heck of a
coincidence to find another Missouri Bishop with the name of Granville
in the line...  do you know where your Bishop ancestors came from before
coming to Dade County, Missouri?...  to the best of my knowledge I haven't
heard of Bishops of Dade County, Missouri, tho I haven't looked up yet
what towns might be in that county...

Michael,  just checked our website (url below) Missouri census
information...  there was a Thomas J Bishop in the 1860 census...  so
assume you are connected with him...  but I think that is all the
information that I have about Dade County Bishops...  by the way have
you seen our website?...  if so how did you find out about it?...
