Re: Julia Bishop of Sullivan County, Tennessee 1800s
Great!I have quite a few documents (copies) of Julia's attempts to get benefits (she didn't get any; died before she could).I've got a few documents regarding Jacob that I'll have to scan and forward to you, but I'm happy to do so.I'm not sure who you've been working with, but I'll bet I've also talked to her.I was pretty avid a few years ago.As far as I can tell, all the researchers are stuck at Jacob's ancestry. I'm pretty sure he wasn't Catholic, and, back then, the Church kept birth records in Ireland.No one that I know of has been able to find him.I do know the name was Wark at one time, and it apparently was Scottish.The family ended up all over the place when Scotland came under the rule of England.Our group migrated to Ireland, but I've seen several that came to the US from Holland.
Have you corresponded with Mickey Work?He has VAST information and documentation on the Work family.I lost track of him a few years ago, but he really is an authority on the family.
Anyway, I'll get my books out and start scanning whatever I can find on Jacob and Fleming (more if you want it).
Glad to find you.
