Would be very grateful for any info on the parents/and or family origins of Samuel Bishop born 1776 in Leverett, Franklin County, MA and/or Esther Bathrick born about 1780 also in Leverett, MA.
Both eventually migrated to Sweden, Monroe County, western New York state (near Rochester) where history records have Samuel showing up in 1807-09 as one of Sweden's first settlers. However, LDS has Samuel and Esther getting married in Monroe County, NY about 1800??? (which could mean they were living elsewhere in Monroe County (Rochester)before moving to Sweden??) What is certain is that they are both buried in Sweden, NY.
If anybody is interested in the Bishop line of my family down to me, you can have it for the asking.
Any info will be really appreciated!
Many thanks and Best Regards, John Palmroth
