Subject: Re: These Kids From California are Bishop Descendants Date: 12 Feb 1998 From: William F Bishop email@example.com To: Nancy L Lee firstname.lastname@example.org, Dana Althiser email@example.com Nancy, below is the content of your email relating to George and Sharon Lipscomb... and your mention of Sharon's younger sister [wife of Mike Larson]... Mrs. Mike Larson having two teenagers living in California... who were in Missouri to visit their grandparents this past summer of 1997... these two teenagers being your sister's ex-husband's nephew's kids... yes! I bogged down on that last piece of information... :-)... can you give names for each person of "sister's ex-husband's nephew's kids"... give the name of the two grandparents... give the name of the former great aunt [your sister?]... Also below is I think the content of the email to which you refer as having been the "letter which put my feeble little pea brain to work"... :-)... the letter is from Jim Bradly [my first cousin]... he is stating that Dana Althiser (firstname.lastname@example.org) who just recently contacted us Bishops about the website... Dana's grandparents being John William and Eathel Edna (Leverett) Bishop... Dana's g-grandparents being Harry Stanley Bishop and Eunice Alvia (Clement)... Dana's gg-grandparents being Samuel Calvin Bishop and Alice (Hayden)... Dana's ggg-grandparents being Granville Addison Bishop and Mary Ann (Spears)... it also turns out that Dana is related to Jim's wife, Mary Edna (Long) as Mary's parents are Herbert Long and Lillian (Levertt)... and Lillian's sister is Eathel Edna Leverett... According to an email from Dana Althiser also shown below... Dana Althiser is the daughter of Sharon Davis (Bishop)... it looks like then that Sharon Davis (Bishop) is married to George Lipscomb... and thus Dana is Dana (Lipscomb) Althiser who's parents are George and Sharon Davis (Bishop) Lipscomb... I'm going to copy Dana on this email... she hasn't written back to me yet from when I answered her initial email... hopefully Dana will clear this up for us and maybe know who the "Mrs. Mike Larson having two teenagers living in California" is referring to... :-)... Dana, come on Dana... help us out here... we are your friends and family... :-)... get us unstuck... :-)... I just love these puzzles!!! and trying to figure them out... it's a fun challenge... ---------------------------------------- Subject: These Kids From California are Bishop Descendants Date: 11 Feb 98 From: email@example.com (Nancy L. Lee) Bill, I have been busy all week and wanted to relate a story to you pointing out what a small world this really is... This past summer my sisters and I took our kids to Cannon Dam to the water park. Along were two teenagers from California who were in Missouri to visit their grandparents... I remembered these kids as infants. They are my sister's ex husband's nephews kids (confused yet)... who decided to spend a few days with their former great aunt (who is just 40... great aunts are pictured at least 75 years old right?) It finally hit me the other night that these kids are Bishop grandkids. Their mother, who I vaguely remember as a teenager in Wellsville had an older sister, Sharon, who was married to George Lipscomb. (You mentioned her the other day in a letter which put my feeble little pea brain to work) They were a little older than myself but occassionally we were in the same group at a social function. So these kids from California are Bishop descendants.. I have forgotten their mother's name but their father is Mike Larson... but only related to one of my nephews... Another one of those close misses Beverly [Robinson] and I keep having in our family lines.... Kin to the same people but not to each other.

Bradley) Bill, Yes I do know Dana she is Mary's cousins' daughter or one of our kinfolk I had a email from her mother tonight also. Dana's granddad is John W. Bishop the one that I got the pictures of and had you put on the site. Sharon is the mother of Dana. There is a son also of David Lipscomb. I have them in my files if I can figure out how to do the html file I will try and get it to you. Tonight is going to be a busy night, have a church meeting and Mary just called and said that they admitted her mother to the hospital with a broken hip. So I need to get at it as the meeting is at 7:00. ttyl Jim ---- Subject: Re: John and Eathel Bishop Date: 02 Feb 1998 From: William F Bishop email@example.com To: Dana Althiser firstname.lastname@example.org Dana wrote: > My name is Dana Althiser, D/O Sharon Davis (Bishop), D/O John and Eathel > Bishop.

I will try and respond to some of the other emails that I have received as soon as possible. I will also be changing my email address soon and let everyone know the new address. Thanks, Dana.
