Anne ---- Levin Bishop - Columbia Missouri Herald, 21 Nov 1878, p3col2 Aged Veterans - On Saturday last Gabriel Parker and Levin Bishop, two of the oldest men in our county, casually met in our office. Their histories, although unknown to each other previously, have been singularly alike. Both were born in Maryland; Mr Bishop in Worcester county on October 4, 1789; Mr Parker in Frederick county, on November 19, 1792. Mr Bishop is therefore 89 years old, and Mr Parker 86. Both afterwards removed to Kentucky - Mr Bishop to Bourbon county in 1811; Mr Parker to Fayette county in 1795. Both served in the war of 1812; Mr Bishop under Col. Boswell; Mr Parker under Col. Sirnrall; and both are now receiving pensions from the government. Both afterwards removed to Boone county, Missouri; Mr Bishop in 1830, Mr Parker in 1846; the latter having lived in Callaway county one year previous to coming to Boone. Both are small men - about the same weight and height; neither being over 5 feet 8 inches and neither weighing over 115 lbs. Both give promise of surviving several years yet; neither having much declined during the past few years. Mr Parker informs us that his grandfather lived to 115 years of age and his grandmother 105. ---- Levin Bishop - 1875 Boone County Missouri Atlas Perche Township, T50N R13W S29, 80 acres, just west of Dripping Springs and southeast a bit from Harrisburg.
