Dates on the tombstone read 1886-1959
After a review of the birth date found on Doll's tombstone I wonder if she
is not the daughter of Shelby Bishop and Martha Young Bishop. I tried to
find a social security record on her but didn't find a thing.
Warren County Missouri Marriage Records, Volume 3, indicate S.W. Bishop
married Mrs. N.M. Bishop 28 Sept 1878. Napoleon had died 2 March 1878.
The 1880 census for Warren County Hickory Grove South Township page 728
reads as follows for the Bishop family
BISHOP, Shelby age 27 born in Mo parents born in KY a farmer
BISHOP, Martha N. age 33 his wife
BISHOP, Oglesby age 18
BISHOP, Maggie age 11
BISHOP, Poly R. age 4 (this would be Napoleon)
BISHOP, William A age 1
BISHOP, John F. age 18 farm hand (no relationship stated)
This does not account for the children, Martha and Doll who must really be
the children of Shelby and Martha, rather than Napoleon and Martha Bishop
since they were born after the 1880 census..
