  Maybe some of her husband's family was from around here.  I don't recognize
the name of Clem.  Most of the houses along Church street were probably
built in the 1940s.

  It really is a shame to have half sister and/or brothers that you don't know
anything about or for that matter to have family that you never see or
associate with.  My dad does not know anything about his Clement family.  He
said when he was a kid they were either around his dad's family (the Copes)
or his mother's two sisters, Mary Ellen Brower Pine and Bessie Brower Fry.  I
know myself as a child I can remember going to Montgomery City and New
Florence to visit with Aunt Bessie Brower Fry or Aunt Florence Cope Bowlby.
Once in a while we would visit my dad's cousin Don Cope and his wife
Leona at Martinsburg.  Did you know that my dad was actually born in Leige,
MO.  Leige was a very very small town that was eventually consumed by New
Florence...  ergo it is no longer in existance.

photo is very very poor.  Kathleen has probably had it since her mother,
Aunt Bessie Brower Fry past away.  I called her and thanked her for sending
the photos (as well as others) and told her about all the family info I have
found out on the Bishop and the Clements.  I knew that Kathleen or one of
her sisters had a photo and I had a color copy but it wouldn't scan worth
messing with.  Kathleen said that before her mother died they taped several
conversations with her about the families.  Aunt Bess knew all the Bishops
quite well.  I told Kathleen that if she chould get them transcribed we
would very much be interested in reading them.  When I get Margaret's file
entered from Jim Bradley, then I will print out ALL the information I have
on both families and send them to Kathleen.  She lives in Ojai [California]...
but she doesn't own a computer.  I told her if she knew someone who could
access the internet then she should take a look at your wonderful web site.
