Subject: Obituary of Doll Bishop and 1880 census Date: 26 Mar 98 From: email@example.com (Nancy L. Lee) [see obituary above] 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..
