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 City, MO and am engaged to Micheal Southard of Jefferson City, MO. Sharon Bishop is now married to Thomas Davis and resides in Mexico, MO. 4th - Larry Bishop married Betty Logan and they have two children and now live in Columbia, MO.

Their Children are Stephanie, Chuck and William (Billy). None of the Children are married yet, however, Stephanie is engaged. 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 email@example.com. 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. ---- Subject: Re: [Dana's Email] Date: 16 Mar 1998 To: Sharon & Tad firstname.lastname@example.org Sharon & Tad wrote: > Sharon (Bishop) Davis wrote: > I talked to my daughter, Dana, today and she "is" having trouble > receiving email.

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... :-)... > Anymore news or questions be sure to let me know.

Sharon 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...
