I know that I'm grasping at a whim as all the trees I find say that John and Ester Bishop's last child Lucy was born in 1999. I just thought it was possible that Ester was with child when he died and that child never got listed.
Up until last year we never knew the maiden name of my 3rd GreatGrandmother Cynthia, a death cert was found where it said her maiden name was Bishop. She shows up in the 1850 US Census as born in Canada, in the 1880 US Census she says both her parents were born in Connecticut, she was born in Canada. We assume that her parents were UEL. She is listed as being born between 1797-1802 in Canada.
She married Duncan Grant b. 1788 (again we don't know his parents or where in Canada he was born) about 1816/17. Children who were born in Canada were James 1817, John 1821, Clarissa 1823, Freeman 1828 (my 2nd GreatGrandfather), Allen, Ira 1830, Rufus 1832, Erastus 1834, Emily 1836, Merilla/Marilla 1838 and William 1840. The family moved to the US, Pennsylvania, where Aaron 1843, Allison 1843 and David 1844 were born.
The 1850 US Census show Ira, William, Marilla, Allison and David living with them. Clarissa had married a Edward Pettit b. 1818 in England, they may have married in Canada then they were living in NY in 1843, then Ohio then in PA.
The only Family Bible known does not have any other info about parents or birthplace. There are quite a few of us who are related to these folks but we all have the same Brick Wall. Thanks, Lyle D. Bishop III
PS You have the same male names as I have found, there were also Rachel, Sarah, Ruby, Sally and Urania.
