You know how I like to stir the waters.... It appears that old Shelby

I remembered I had seen someone I thought might be him there on a census a
year or so ago. The girls prove to me this is our Shelby, son of Greenberry
and Ann Eliza Bishop. The census people had scribbled over the middle
initial so I couldn't make it out for sure.
        I wonder if the state Historical Society might have City
directories for St. Louis. I bet they do.
        I wrote the Maddox website on the family story I told you at the
library the other day. They had background info on the father of Pocahuntas
Maddox, my great grandfather's first wife who is supposed to have run off
with my great grandmother's first husband, the bounty hunter... Art and
Billie, this is a great story!!! I just heard the scandel from my father's
family they kept hidden for 130 years!!

[Note:  Looked for 1920 Shelby Bishop but didn't see him, so suspect
that he died after 1910 but before 1920.  Since he and family were
living in St Charles in the 1910 Census wouldn't he be likely to be
buried in the St Charles area? - Bill]

From: (Nancy L. Lee)
I am forwarding this on for your information!! What a great find! I have
just skimmed it and won't get a chance to play with it this week, I'm sure.
But will print it off and study it later.  Now It looks like we have many
more dates and names we KNOW all tie together somehow.
