To:   William F Bishop

Recently got in touch with a Nancy Lee to have her look up some information
for me in Montgomery Co. (she is with the historical society there).  Found
out were she and I are related on the Clements line through Robert's dau., and
Joseph Jones sister, Elizabeth who married a Dye.  She sent me much information.

She checked out your web page and thought it looked great.  She has a Bishop
also in her family and sent me this information. (She said she tried to send
it to you, but it didn't go through).  Nancy Lee sent the following:  Her
email address is:

I tried the Bishop web page you sent last night. I thought it was just great.
Much easier to follow than another page I had tried. I called Beverly and told
her to turn on the computer and go to the address and look at her family. I
tried to contact William Bishop and my letter was returned. I have a Bishop
line too but I don't know if they connect. Mine came from Va to Audrain Co
before 1850. IThe furtherest back I know is Daniel Bishop, believed to be my
3 great grandfather. His son Greenberry Bishop was married twice. #1 was
Eliza ? They had several children. Shelby W. and Napoleon lived to adulthood.
Eliza is buried in thte old Pioneer cem. in Mexico Mo Greenberry was a rough
man. I have traced him through history and wonder a lot about him. He married
#2 Zerrelda Castlio. Whose mother was the widow of Capt. James Callaway. Grandson
of Daniel Boone. Zerrelda was disowned for a period of time for her marriage
but was back in St. Charles CO where she died in 1861. She and Greenberry had
first come to Audrain CO where he was a horseracer and slave trader. He was in
on the attempt to raise the seccessionist flag in Mexico. They named half
their children Indian names. 3 children survived. Zerrelda who married Ed Lewis
and lived at Benton City. Her daughter died leaving no heirs. A son Daniel
Bishop married into thte Moore family and moved to Howell Co where the family
did quite well. I have corresponded with a member of this line. Last to survive
was my great grndmother Watoga Pocahontus Bishop (see what I mean) Not the
cool name to give the granddaughter of the widow of the great Indian fighter.
Greenberry died also before the children were raised and they were split apart
and raised by various people. Watoga was rased by the Caurother's family near
Wentzville. I know of no relation ship and next to nothing about them. Shel;by
and Napoleon were not know to our line. I believe I have found Shelby's grave
and Napoleon may have married his widow. Zerrelda and Greenberry lived in New
Melle. I have been there once years ago. A summer goal is to head that way and

Date: 23 Dec 1997 To: Gail Haferkamp CC: Nancy Lee Gail, am glad to get your info about Nancy Lee... will get in touch with her via email for followup... she mentions "the old Pioneer cem. in Mexico Mo"... I wonder if by that she means the Old Village Cemetery in the north central part of town... which is now a park with the gravestones in the wall... can't remember the street intersection where it is located... I know there are several Bishop names there... and years ago I wrote them down so have that info around somewhere... the curious thing is that I was just the last few days thinking about those Bishop folks buried there... and was slowly moving in the direction of finding out who they were... by following up with tracking Bishop lines in the Audrain County area... I haven't quite gotten thru it all yet but was slowly moving in that direction... :-)... wonder who Nancy Lee meant by "Beverley"?... and what this Beverley's email address is?... Also was at the State Historical Society last Saturday... am just now in the process of typing up that info as webdocuments and placing online with links on the "Source & Reference - Missouri" webpage... also have placed some info on the "BISHOP Related Census/Marriages/Wills/Miscellaneous - Missouri" webpage... in the process of doing that I am also being able to relate a few things together... for example if you look at the "BISHOP Related Census/Marriages/Wills/Miscellaneous - Missouri" webpage... and notice the "Montgomery County - 1876 Census" section... there you will find bunched together several people who seem perhaps to have been living together in 1876: BISHOP, BA 23 M ie Beverley Allen Bishop - Granville's son EJ 22 F ie Eliza Jane Coil (his wife) SMITH, J 18 M BISHOP, GW 10 M ie who would this be? G 5 M ie who would this be? CLEMMENTS, MA 42 F ie Mary Ann Clements - Granville's widow BISHOP, AJ 7 F ie who would this be? Ellen 3 F ie who would this be? if you can identify these folks let me know...

Now all I have to do is find the time to learn to operate it. I have been following your search for my Greenberry Bishop. I really appreciate it. I am curious as to your location. I no longer work and try to get to Columbia to do genealogy every couple of weeks at least. I see I must have miss spelled New Melle. It is located south of Wentzville. I will look it up in my new Rand McNally atlas....I must have been good this year??!! New Melle is in St. Charles County. I will see if I have some of the other documents on Greenberry typed and what I decided to file them under and get them to you. I knew that there were other Greenberry Bishops prior to my Greenberry but can't tie them together in my old research. Years and years ago I wrote to the Bishop Family Assoc. or what ever it was called. I believe this was 1969... I recently donated the old newsletters to the Montgomery County Genealogical Society. I need to make mention of some thoughts now before I forget. The Old Village Cem. record is incorrect is the statement that Allie Osceola was from the first marriage of Greenberry. She was a full sister to Watoga. Zerrelda's initials were misread as L.E. on the tombstone there. I don't know why Watoga and her husband were buried in Mexico at Elmwood. Two of their son's are buried there and the other son at East Lawn in Mexico. My grandmother said it was because they were influential people and didn't like the idea of the country cemetery. But I wonder ... Watoga's in law's are at Liberty here at Shamrock. I have Zerrelda's autograph book dating from the Civil War era. There is one signature from Hopkinsville, Ky. Jean Cotton and I recently found each other online. Isn't it a small world?? Did you know the Audrain County Genealogical Society recently rescued a number of circuit court packets that were about to be pitched dating from prior to the Civil War. I have read a number of these and copied some pertaining to Greenberry. I this is THINK that John S. Bishop was his brother... I will see if I can find those files yet tonight and send them. Grrenberry doesn't come out in a very good light. There were more. In one he beat some man's clothes off of him... Another he and Daniel and John Bishop are chased to Ky with slaves they haven't paid for. Why I didn't copy these is beyond me. I under stand they are off being microfilmed now. I read on the web site that you are interested in the location of land belonging to Liberty Church... I gave a presentation on the history of the Church there this past summer. My brother was married there 2 years ago. The first wedding there in years. I remember as a child that a local realator sold land on the north ide of the road to a man from St. Louis. He fenced it all in and then learned from some of the older church members that they didn't care if he wanted to use it but wanted him to realize that the current road does NOT mark the north border of their property. I guess it was a mess. This realator had a reputation for selling land and worrying about the lay of the property later. He built his own morton building on land in Martinsburg and then discovered he put the corner of his building on State property. I have permission from Marj Miller to use any of her cemetery records for my newsletter or the Montgomery County Web site. I will see if she personally researched any of the cemeteried you are looking for. As I understand it this clears any infringements on copyrite if Marj has done the research and then tells me ok. I ask Beverly Robinson if she had a copy of the Oliver cemetery and she doesn't. Beverly's husband descends from Wilburn's and Bishop's. Shelton Allen Oliver and Sarah Virginia Bishop were his 3 great grand parents on one side and St. Clair Wilburn and Susan Coil on another side. I will have to dig Zerrelda's book out and see what other names I can find in it. Oh yes. I found this recently and wondered if it could be Greenberry's son on the 1900 census for Audrain Co MO, Prairie Twsp., postoffice Laddonia, MO Shelby Bishop age 44 born 1-56 married 8 yrs MO/MO/ Ky day laborer out of work 2 mo.

Nancy ---- Subject: Re: Elisha Bishop Date: 29 Dec 1997 From: Anne Baker To: Tolman1, Jean Cotton, Nancy L Lee CC: Mike Bishop, Jeff & Sally Received the .rtf just fine. Thank you. I have been picking up some interesting things in Ky., alas only pieces of the puzzle at this time. Mike Bishop & William Bishop also located on line the family of Thomas Bishop, Jr. The thread throughout all of this is the name Greenberry Bishop.. Mike sent to me awhile back some interesting census records for several different Greenberry Bishops.. one shows up as late as 1860 in Berkeley Co WV. There are ties, as yet unknown to Bishops who went to SC & central/south Va..right now I can't see the forest for the trees The Vachel Bishop, Mike and I are specifically looking for had 12 children born 1780's - 1810..10 sons..only 2 sons are documented (have the names and marriages..just don't know what happened to them) and only the most vague records to date..including a Greenberry who m 1817. There are Greenberry Bishop (s) in western Ky census and in INdiana. And possibly the Greenberry Bishop of St. Charles, Mo. At this time I think there must be a whole lot of Bishops who are related in some way. William Bishop is providing a great site for BISHOP information I will try to get some of this misc. information in a little order and get it to all of you.

Lee) As you can tell I have no life. It is New Years Eve at 10:30 and I am doing genealogy and living about 156 years ago right now! I went to the Audrain County Genealogical Society today and blew all my extra money on photo copies of the court packets. It looks like I need to make a trip to the court house and to Callaway county courthouse (same distance, about 20 miles or so) Greenberry and Daniel Bishop were definitely in TRIGG county KY in 1842. I will type up the documents and e mail them to you as soon as I get a chance. Apparently they borrowed $200. and used the money to buy 3 slaves...surely they had to put money with it... anyhow the note was overdue and the holder of the note sued the two Bishops (no relationship ever stated) and a John S. Fisher, I believe the security on the note. A few years roll by and they whole bunch including the note holder Collins Bradley move to callaway County Missouri where he loans them more money and they still don't pay him. Finally Bradley must end up getting his money but they suit has turned into only a suit against Greenberry at this point. No clue in these papers as to what has become of Daniel. In a later suit against Greenberry there appear to be connections to Montgomery CO and in one a mention of a G G Bishop as a witness. One note I did have jump right out at me Barba Collins son Morgan H Collins signs bond for Greenberry Bishop in one suit. Greenberry is my 2 great granddfather on my Mother's side and Morgan Collins is my 2 great grandfather on my father's side. Wonder how they knew each other... also could this be a connection to the Shamrock area by Greenberry? I definitely have a lot of typing to do and I may leave out some of the repetitious pages... What do you think? much mumbo jumbo to say who is suing who and for what and what dates and who are who's witnesses. Also should I spell things the way it is on the original? I think so. It is a little harder to is written as fs...but more acurate. Please advise. I also wanted to tell you where I found the article stating Greenberries southern sympathies in Audrain Co. A HISTORY OF NORTHEAST MISSOURI Vol. 1, edited by Walter Williams, The Lewis Publishing Co., Chicago, New York, 1913 page 211.... Early in the spring of 1861 when the lines between union and secession were beginniing to be drawn, the people of the county were about equally divided, there being, however, a strong secessionist sentiment in and around Mexico.The divided sentiment is well illustrated by an effort which was made to raise a secession flag in Mexico that spring. William O. Johnson, Green Bishop, James and Roobert Carter and Joe Inlow were the leaders of the participants on the part of the secessionist. On the other hand were George W. Fentom, Samuel Fentem, Harry Estes and W. H. White, the leaders of the opposition. It was undertaken to put the flag on the Bell and Everrett pole of the fall campaign still standing. This resulted in a general fight in which no one was killed but several badly hurt. The secessionist were compelled to retire without ever getting the flag on the pole and the secession flag never floated in Mexico. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Green berry and family moved to St. Charles county shortly after this. This is supported by Zerrelda's death there in the Fall of 1861. In the book the Crow's Nest there is a story related of an event in the Civil War where a neighbor of southern sympathies ran to Zerrelda's home for protection from the militia that was after him. She hid him under her bed and as she sat at her spinning wheel they came in and killed him. We suppose this happened in St. Charles Co.... Doesn't sound like a much safer place to have resided. I also have the articles where about 1843 or a little later Green and John Bishop were horse racers in Mexico from an old newspaper. You can expect that tomorrow after my boyfriend's grandbaby goes home.. Hard to type witha 15 month old running through and pulling everything down. Goodnight. Maybe I can be asleep for the year's end. Nancy ---- Subject: more Greenberry Bishop in Audrain Co MO Date: 01 Jan 98 From: (Nancy L. Lee) Well the baby went home and I had to check the mail for the Montgomery County Genealogical Society so Will, my 6 yr. old and I went to luck would have it he pee'd his pants before we even got to town for the promised soda. Did I tell you Will has Down Syndrome? He does pretty good but still has accidents especially if he wears pull ups instead of big boy pants. I also have 2 grown children. My daughter lives in Columbia behind Regional Hospital and works with her boyfriend at Widman's Bar on 8th and Broadway. He owns it and she helps him. I live about 3/4 of a mile north of Shamrock. I haven't made it too far since the first of my ancestors came here about 1826. Actually I left once for about 12 years but no place else felt like home. So 7 years ago Will's father Gale Stuart and I both wanted back in the hills south of Martinsburg and bought this place. Gale and I grew up about 3-4 miles apart but never knew each other. He is 7 years older than I am and went to country school and then quit when he got out of 8th grade. I guess that is why we never met until about 8 years ago. But we always knew who the other was as adults because my first husband is also named Gail, just a different spelling. We all lived in Wellsville through the 70's. I enjoyed hearing about your family. It is nice to have a better picture of the person you correspond with than only a lot of facts and figures. You ask my connection to the Wilburn family... I wish I knew! No joke! For 3 generations my father's family claimed kin and Lawrence Wilburn's kids and my siblings grew up calling each other cousin instead of our names. But about 2 years ago Beverly Robinson and her husband Larry were broke down in Shamrock at my brothers. She ask him, as he was fixing the truck, to explain the family connection. He said he didn't know but to use his phone and call me and save herself a long distance call. She did and we sat up a time to sit down and look at each other's paperwork and try to figure it out. I called my uncle Don Hale who told me no one was ever sure how we connected but he thought it was through John Board, my 3 great grandfather who built the big brick house about a mile southwest of Shamrock as you head to Williamsburg. So far we have found about 9 connections to people in comman but no comman ancestry. We both connect to the name Bishop, Maupin, Via, Norris, Hamilton, my br. in law turned out to be her cousin through the Boicourt's or Deardorff's,(I've forgotten now) and several other ways I can't recall right now. The closest near miss we have is that Noah Wilburn had 2 wives. They descend through the second. Our connection was his first wife was John Board's granddaughter. So as usual we have relatives in comman. Another was Ed Lewis from Benton City and later Martinsburg had several wives. One of whom was Greenberry Bishop's daughter Zerrelda. After his death he married Margaret Wilburn. Again no blood kin. Druary Maupin's second wife that we descend from, Martha Board, had been married previously to Wm Norris, buried at Augusta. I don't remeber how her connection to that line goes. But it is there. Another of Larry Robinson's ancestors ?(I've forgatten the name) Ward was raised by the Maupin famiy that lived north of Bethel Church and married into the Walker's..Phoebe Dye, my 2 great grandmother's sister was married to one of the Walker family and so we are related to all these people in commas. Robinson's relate to the Dickey's and Johnson's that lived near Bethel great grandfather's brother married one of the Dickey girls and so again we have relatives in comman. It just goes on and on. We keep threatening to keep track of it...if we have enough paper! We will be at a library and she will whisper.."Have you heard of so and so?" and I will say "sure..why?" and she will tell me and I roll my eyes (which I do alot) and she will say who is he and I will say "my great great grandfather's brother or whatever the relationship is" Then we both sit there in shock AGain. My larangitis seems to be trying to sneak back in and my ears hurt so I am off to bed. Here are a few goodies I did manage to get typed.

I believe one of my Bishop lines (I have two) is a branch of the family you are researching, but have no proof. I am a descendant of John Bishop and his son John, Jr. (born 1799), both of whom migrated from Edgefield District South Carolina to Wayne County Mississippi in 1818. Also migrating from Edgefield County in 1818 to Wayne County were Thomas and Esias Bishop, who were brothers according to Pat Edwards of Purvis, Mississippi. Thomas and Esias were still living in 1850 and gave their place of birth as Maryland. They were born c.1778 and c.1780. I believe my John was a brother also. My John, Jr. (born 1799) moved from Wayne County Mississippi to Hinds County Mississippi to Lauderdale County Mississippi, where he died, and where he was listed as John G. Bishop on one tax list. He named a son John Greenberry Bishop, leading me to believe the "G" stood for Greenberry. Another son of John G. Bishop named a son John Greenberry (my grandfather). Possibly John, Sr. was also John Greenberry since his son John G. was spoken of in family history as John, Jr. I'm sure you saw the information Pat Bishop Obrist posted on Frederick County Virginia Bishops and her chart showing descendants of Thomas Bishop. I assume the Greenberry Bishop born 1786 is the one you have found in Missouri. Right? I am wondering if the elder Greenberry (son of Thomas) of Anne Arundel County Maryland and Frederick County Virginia could be the father of my John and of Thomas and Esias. Thomas and Esias both named sons Thomas T. Bishop. (The middle name of one of them is on a deed and is Tillman.) The time frame, names, and Maryland connection all fit. There is an estate inventory for Greenberry Bishop, dated 1815, in Berkeley County Virginia (now West Virginia). Elisha Bishop born c.1760 applied for a Revolutionary War pension in 1833 in Henry County Kentucky. He stated he was born in Anne Arundel County Maryland and had lived in Berkeley County Virginia. Information from LDS church states that Elisha Bishop married Elizabeth Ellis in 1786 in Frederick County Virginia. No doubt Elisha was another member of this family. Scribbled on the back of a photograph of my great grandparents is a name which I can't read, but under it is written :"Dekalb, West Virgnia". I don't know the significance, but in light of the clues we have, I wonder if it were the name of a relative. We have a lot of pieces that appear to fit together. If you make any progress, I should like to know about it, and I will do the same.

Charleston Pct.#5 ---- Subject: Greenberry Bishops Date: 07 Jan 1998 From: (Mailande Schrum) To:, CC:, Dear Anne, Many thanks for additional information on Greenberry Bishops. Too bad Solomon Bishop's will did not name his children or mother. I suppose someone has looked for an estate settlement that might name children? I assume that Greenberry Bishop found on 1790 census of A.A. County is the same Greenberry found on 1810 census of Frederick County Virginia since he disappears from Maryland census and is listed in 1810 as 46+. What is your opinion? And is he the same Greenberry whose estate was inventoried in Berkeley County in 1815? In looking over my notes, I came across an interesting tid-bit: Col. Charles Hammond married Mrs. Rachel Greenberry widow of Col. Charles Greenberry. His will (Col. Hammond's) 1772, named William, Ann,and Hamutal Bishop children of his granddaughter Rebecca Bishop. Hamutal married David Kerr in 1773, so this William Bishop may have been grown in 1772. I doubt that the Hammond-Greenberry marriage had anything to do with the naming of Greenberry Bishop, but it appears the Bishops and Greenberrys did know each other. Thanks again, Mailande Schrum ---- Subject: Re: Galen E Bishop - History of Buchanan County, Missouri, 1881 Date: 09 Jan 1998 From: Anne Baker William F Bishop wrote: > Greenberry Bishop and John S Bishop > (possible brother to Greenberry) visited Trigg Co to purchase a slave at > one time... also Zerelda was in Hopkinsville (Christian Co) where she > got the "signature" in the autograph book... in the 1849 Kentucky > Census Index there are four Daniel Bishops: Trigg p288, Jeff p155, Wash > p126, Wash p126... There was only 1 Daniel Bishop in Washington Co., Ky. I have that census in front of me he does not have a son Greenberry or Green or Berry in 1850. This Daniel is the son of Solomon ARW pensioner of Nelson Co., Ky & a brother of Elisha Bishop ARW pensioner..both sons of Thomas Bishop and they were born in AA Co Maryland. The Daniel Bishop on the Jefferson Co (Louisville) Ky census is possibly/probably the son of Vachel Bishop of Mercer Co Ky - who I am seeking. This son Daniel of whom I know almost nothing married Sophia Harris 10/4/1826 in Clark Co Ind. which is just across the river from Jefferson Co Ky. Daniel & Sophia were both alive in 1844 when they sold land inherited from his father Vachel Bishop. From Tax lists Daniel, son of Vachel, was born cir 1792-3 which is certainly in the ball game for the Daniel in Green Bishops household. The Wesley Bishop of Calloway Co Mo was the son of Valentine Bishop who was a brother of the above Daniel. I found the two census records you sent below confusing. As yet I don't have anything on those Bishops in Christian and/or Trigg Cos in Ky. > Dardene Township 1870 St Charles MO Census there is the following: > Bishop, Green 40 M KY farmer > Willie G 30 F KY keeping house > Shelby 17 M KY none > Daniel 12 M MO > Zerrelda 7 F MO > Watoga 6 F MO > Daniel 76 M KY farmer --- NOTE!!!! > Yet in the 1868 St Charles MO Census: > Bishop, Green B. 45+ M > Napeleon 21-45 M > Mrs N. 21-45 F > Oglesby -10 M > Shelby 10-18 M > John D 10-18 M > Sieral--? -10 F > Watpka -10 F > The Daniel that is 76 in 1870 would have been born in Kentucky about > 1794...

These Bishops are descendants of Joshua BISHOP, but I find my Rezin Laury BISHOP in this same area between 1800-1805. My Rezin BISHOP was born in Maryland, resided in Fred. Co, Va, married in Maury Co, TN and settled in Perry Co, MO. Wonder if these Bishops are related to the Greenberry BISHOP you have named. BTW my two children graduated from the J. School at Mizzou and I was in Columbia many times between 1990-1995. I live in St. Charles, MO. There are lots of resources here, actually so many books in the St. Charles Library, Linnemann Branch on Elm Street, that I do not feel knowledgeable. Best of luck!

As far as I can tell, it looks as though there were maybe one or two families. In the probate records I do recall seeing a John Bishop and a Green(brg)? Bishop. I do have the following bits on Bishop's at hand: Baptisms - Friedens Church - 1833 - 1964: Bishop, Gordon Pierce b. 4 Sep 1927, bap. 9 Oct., Parents: Edgar & Victoria Peirce Bishop. Bishop, Joan Ann b. 11 Sep 1935, bap. 13 Sep , Parents: Elmer & Leora Schneider Bishop St. John's UCC, St. Charles, Marriages: Bishop, Elmer O. to Schneider, Leora 9 Jun 1928 Friedens Church in St. Charles is the oldest Catholic church in St. Charles County from what I have been told. ---- Subject: St. Charles Co. Date: 2 Feb 1998 From: "Gail Haferkamp" Attached is some information I got from the St. Charles County Historical Society. I am sending a copy to Nancy Hale Lee and I also made copies of the probate records to mail to her. From the St. Charles County Historical Society Probate Records: BISHOP, Greenburg File #247 BISHOP, John D. File #248 File #248: John D. Bishop: Filed August 17, 1871: Greenbury Bishop, curator of the estate of John D. Bishop, Zerelda Bishop and Waughtoga Bishop, minors, states on oath that the foregoing is a true inventory of all the real estate of all the goods and chattels, rights and credits of his said wards that have come to his possession or knowledge. (Note: apparently there was some sort of law suit between Greenbury Bishop and the Castlio heirs. Zerelda was the only dau. of John Harrison Castlio and Nancy Callaway Howell. Zerelda was the wife of Greenbury Bishop. The suit had to do with some land that was owned by John Harrison Castlio and in 1865 he apparently offered it to Greenbury and wife if they would move from Audrain Co. to St. Charles Co.) ---- File #247: Greenburg Bishop This file did not contain very much information. There was a copy of the "Order of Publcation" where Thos. S. Cunningham, Public Administrator of St. Charles County was in charge of the estate of Greenberry Bishop, deceased for sale of real estate, lists and inventory and affidavit required by law. It stated that the personal estate of Greenberry was not sufficient to pay his debts, etc. This is dated November 11, 1875. ---- Old Dardenne Presbyterian Church Cemetery, Dardenne Township, St Charles, MO: Zebelda E.
