1757 ---:  Fredericksville Parish Vestry Book 1742-1787, p1-2
        The northern part of St Anne's Parish in Albemarle County was added
        to the Fredericksville Parish an act passed in 1757.  "That from and after
        the twentieth day of July next all that part of the parish of St. Anne which
        lies on the north side of the Rivanna River and above a northeast line to be
        drawn from King's Ford to the line of Fredericksville Parish, and from the said
        Ford up the said river to Secretary's Ford, and thence by the main road leading to
        Wood's Gap, in the Great Mountain, be added to the said parish of Fredericksville
        and made a part thereof."  [Thus the north part of Albemarle County was Fredericksville
        Parish and the south part was St Anne's Parish-wfb]

1782 ---:  "An 18th Century Perspective - Culpeper County; Mary Stevens Jones; 1976" p.98ff
        Chapter X: Stevensburg, an  Ancient Town of Renown
                There was a very early settlement of Quakers (Friends) at
        Stevensburg. Their meetinghouse, called Southland, is said to have been
        located near the site of present-day Stevensburg Methodist Church. JONATHAN
        BISHOP, leader of this meeting, and perhaps other Friends lived near Mount
        Pony as early as 1782. Today this area is commonly known as The Flats.
        Southland and Culpeper Meetings were among those included in the Hopewell
        yearly meeting.
                Tradition says the town grew and prospered as long as the Quakers
        remained there - from circa 1788 to circa 1820, it began to decline when
        they pulled up staked and left because the town had grown too wicked, or so
        the story goes. There is evidence that by 1820 most of the Friends disturbed
        by the issue of slavery, had moved to Ohio. the Quakers strongly opposed
        slavery. Among the Friends who migrated to Ohio with this group were members
        of the Inskeep family who had moved to Culpeper from Camden, NJ,
        and Philadelphia and settled in the Mount Pony area.

1799 ---:  History of Albemarle County Virginia by Edgar Woods
        Terrell - ... John Terrell who it is believed was a brother of Reuben
        and Robert, and a son of Edmund Terrell and Margaret Willis, purchased
        in 1799 from Robert Carter more than twelve hundred acres in the Biscuit
        Run Valley.  In the first years of the century, Terrell's Shop was a
        familiar waymark on the road from Charlottesville to Carter's Bridge.
        He and his wife Rebecca sold his property in Albemarle, and about 1806
        removed to Greenup County, Kentucky.  His mother died in 1812, and his
        sisters were Nancy, the wife of Thomas Henderson, Jane, the wife of Joseph
        Bishop, Frances, the wife of Charles C. Lacy, and Lucy.

        Joseph Bishop had tan yard in Fredericksville Parish, Albemarle County in 1820.

1820 --:  "Albemarle, Jefferson’s County, 1727-1976"; John Hammond Moore, p95-96 & 103
                These sawmills produced nearly 900,000 feet of lumber each year,
        although most of these operations appear to have been small, part-time
        affairs with only one employee. The flour mills ground 126,000 bushels of
        wheat annually. At least one local miller thought everyone should grind his
        own wheat. In 1820, JOSEPH BISHOP inserted a notice in the Central Gazette
        stating he had operated his mill for sixteen years and had often ground for
        others "toll free." "During this time I had to rebuild the mill - I have
        again rebuilt it and will not grind on any terms whatsoever - Every person
        who has anything to grind, may have a mill at small expense - it wants no
        bed stone, only a runner, a crank, and a small frame - will go by either
        wind or water."
                The annual output of Albemarle’s tanneries was valued at $15,650.
        JOSEPH BISHOP’s twenty-five vats, located near Vinegar Hill, produced 18,000
        pounds of leather per year.
                Two less prestigious female institutions, one at the foot of Vinegar
        Hill and the other at the top, also were operating in the early 1820s. A
        Mrs. Spencer conducted classes for girls under twelve years of age near the
        base "opposite Mr. BISHOP’s tannery."

    George B "Butch" Miller,, Raleigh, North Carolina, MAY be connected thru an ancestor in the Joseph Bishop group. He says: My ggGF James M Bishop was a shoemaker in Staunton, Va, when my GF was born. I remember him telling me, GF, along with my mother (Ruth Mae Bishop) that his father left the family when my GF was a teenager, and my GF had to go to work to support the family and help raise the children which were girls. It is not known what happen to James M after he left. In age, he would have been about 50, as it is believed he was born in 1833?. My uncle, who is now around 80 and the only one of the children of George Hormer still living, use to tell one of his children that his GF (James M) was raised on Meachum River there in Albemarle County. Va., in fact my uncle still lives in Charlottesville, VA.
