South Missourian-Democrat- Alton, MO 11 March 1920 J. D. Bishop, Prominent Citizen of Woodside Township, a Victim of Flu. John D. Bishop, a prominent well known citizen of Woodside township, succumbed to pneumonia following influenza, after a few days sickness, Friday March 5, 1920, at the age of 61 years, nine months and eight days. This sudden and unexpected death was a severe shock to the family and friends of the deceased and was hard for them to realize that he had gone from them to that undiscovered country from where no traveler returns. He was a son of Greenbury and Zerelda Bishop and was born in Adrain ( note: should be Audrain) County, Mo., May 27, 1858. He was united in marriage to Miss Nannie A. Moore, Nov 5, 1876. To this union there was born one child, Mary T. Bishop Gohn. He first come to this county about 45 years ago, with R. P. Young, whom he worked with for about a year and a half and the returned to Warren county, Mo., where he lived a few years and then came back to Oregon County again in 1885 and settled on what is known as the Millsap farm which has been his home continuously ever since. He was recognized and known as one of the hardest working men in the county, and by honest toil early and late, he had accumulated considerable property and was in easy circumstances and had been for several years. He will be much missed in his community, for he was a neighbor who neighbored. Any thing of his .....good for a neighbor who needed or wanted to use it. Or if any misfortune overtook someone and their circumstances were such that they needed help he was usually the first to know it and to head a contribution for their relief. such acts as these endeared him to those about him whose memory will be green in their recollection, as the years come and go as well as an incentive to follow his splendid example. While he has never affiliated with or belonged to any church, he had strong religious convictions, and often spoke of his conversion, which was about eight years ago while plowing in his field. He was so overjoyed he hitched his team and went over to his neighbor and told his experience. A further consolation th and the hope that the end might come without so much suffering, and the peaceful way in which he was permitted to pass over, as witnessed by those who were at his bedside when the end came, seemed to be in answer to his wish and prayer. His friends and neighbors gathered at the home Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock a funeral service was conducted by Rev. M. S. Humphery, pastor of the Baptist church of this place who paid a fine tribute to his life and character. Following the service the body was brought here to Alton and interment had in the Smith cemetery. Nannie: Raised in Warren Co., Mo/Joined the Primitive Baptist Church in Jinesburg, Mo -later united with Missionary Baptist Church in Alton, Mo/
