I am looking for any Bishops connected to this family line. I have a Louis Bishop born around or about 1857 died 1928 who had married a Rosetta or Rose Haney. They had the following kids, Enda Mae, Gladys Matilda, Elijah Roy: who goes by Roy, and Viloa : who died only 11 months old.
In 1920 & 1930 they were living in Douglas twp., Effingham county, Illinois.
I was also told that Louis was married before. I don't know who his first wife was. I am not really sure where this Earnest or Earney Bishop fits in, but is connected some how to Louis first marriage.
Earney Bishop born around or about 1885 had married Matilda Hudson in 1905 in Effingham, Illinois. They were married by a blind minister, named Rev J. L. Bird.
Earney and Matilda had the following kids, Lorena who married a Mr. Parker, Elizabeth who married a Mr. Oscar Hensley, and David Bishop, whom I think is Thomas David according to findings in the 1920 Census.
They were living in Martin, Crawford county, Illinois in 1920 & 1930.
These are the only Bishops I have so far. I would love to hear from anyone that has a connection to this line. Thanks & Happy Hunting!!
