Bill - still having lots of problems with my email so I am sending my
response as an attachment. This is formatted for MS Word, please let me
know if you do not get this or can not read it.
Bill - So sorry to have taken so long to respond..... My email was down and
then I went on Vacation for a week to Lake Tahoe, where I got engaged. So
things have been rather crazy lately. But enough about that, lets see if I
can clear up a few mysteries.
1st - the kids from California are indeed my cousins. They are Amber and
Travis Larson, children of Mike and Kathy (Bishop) Larson. Kathy is my
mothers youngest sibling.
2nd - Siblings would be the children of John and Eathel (Leverett) Bishop.
The children in order go Sharon Ruth (Bishop b.12/1/46) Davis, (who is my
mother), Larry (b. 7/5/48) and Betty (Logan) Bishop, Harry (b. 8/27/50) and
Sharon (Zumbehl) Bishop, and Mike & Kathy (Bishop b. 5/20/56) Larson.
3rd - Sharon was married to George Lipscomb and had two children. David
Richard Lipscomb (b 8/5/66) who now lives in St. Louis. David has one
Daughter, Paige Renee Lipscomb born 10/5/93 (Paige is the only great
granchild of John and Eathel Bishop. Myself, Dana Renee (Lipscomb)
Althiser (b. 10/04/67) being the second child now residing in Jefferson

and now live in Middletown, MO. Their Children are Stephanie, Chuck and
William (Billy). None of the Children are married yet, however, Stephanie
6th - Kathy Bishop Married Mike Larson and they, as previously defined,
have two children Amber and Travis. They live in Sun Valley California I
believe, but not real sure that is the exact town.
7th - Please let me know if you have any further questions regarding this
branch of the family. I am not real sure that my email is operating
correctly yet, so I could not send this message to everyone. Will you
please forward it to everyone on the list. My mother is also on the
internet and her address is firstname.lastname@example.org. She would like to be
added to your list of people to receive information regarding the Bishop
Family. 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.

Am glad to get your response... Nancy (Hale) Lee (Shamrock,
Callaway Co) was the one that put two and two together about her family's
indirect connection to your sister's children from California... :-)...
Nancy had read one of my emails from Jim Bradley (Hallsville, Boone Co) in
which he mentioned the name Libscomb (I think it was) in a description about
a family connection of his wife Mary... anyway Nancy later realized that
she had known about the name Lipscomb from a family connection involving a
visit from a family with two teenage children from California... wherein
they all went on an outing to the Cannon Dam or something another... :-)...
it was later that she realized that there was a connection between that
family of the outing and the Montgomery County Bishop line... :-)... so
she wrote me an email telling me what she remembered and knew... Nancy is a
member of a different Bishop line arising in Audrain County around Mexico,
Missouri, from the mid 1800s... we haven't been able to trace back further
than Greenberry Bishop... Greenberry's first wife, Ann, and several of
their children are buried in the Old Village Cemetery there in Mexico, where
you live... sometimes if you are curious go out to the Old Village Cemetery
and take a look at the Bishop stones that have been placed in a stone
wall... those are some of Nancy's Bishop folks... :-)...

I will get back to you with some questions about Bishop family that
you and your daughter, Dana, would know answers too... I had wanted to make
sure there is a "clear connection" working email-wise before I started
asking any questions... hope Dana's email problems get fixed soon... I
know she must be frustrated with her email... will talk to you later...
