[to William F Bishop,] These are a sample of the Bishop pictures I had printed for my book. I have more of my mother's family and family snapshots but I can't see how they would be of any value to you. My mother's people are -- Maupin, Harris, Oliver - mainly. Some of the Olivers & Bishops intermarried other than my parents. The pages from a book of a complicated family tree which I maintained concerned the Harris family on my mother's side which does not involve any Bishops anywhere - but does involve gentry and royalty back before the 12th century Henry VIII, Henry IV, V, VI, Richard II, Edward II-III up to present Windors and Princess Diana's family - some ancestry. Ha. I have trouble wading through it but its there. If you are interested I can send it to you. There are other such charts to be found involving pioneer families if you know where to look. Such as this library in Alexandria, Virginia. This Mr. McLoughlin I was telling you about is a friend of my sister. I would not want to involve him with his & her permission. He did this work as a special favor for her and for me.
