Anne,  would you have any info on this John A? Bishop who was born somewhere
in Kentucky about 1822?...  suspect he is related to Greenberry Bishop of
Audrain County, Missouri...    the below info was taken from the Audrain
County 1850 Missouri Census...  and he apparently married Elizabeth Doan
in 1846 in Audrain County...  there is a mention of an Elizabeth Bishop
and her husband John Bishop in some of the Greenberry Bishop court data...
note also the name Doan in the court data...  :-)...  btw John's middle
initial might not have been "A" as per the census info...  could have been
"S" or "C" as there is other mention of a John Bishop with those middle
initials...  btw Elizabeth Doan was born in Kentucky too...  thanks...
