Looking for details of names of children in Edmund Bishop family, who resided in (old) Burke County in 1830 and 1840, and are listed in McDowell County in 1850 -- after it was formed from (mostly)the western part of old Burke.
He was a blacksmith, wife Sarah died there in 1849 or 1850, and we need to connect him to (presumably a grandson) another Edmund H. Bishop, b. 1842 in what is present-day Mitchell County.
Any leads would be much appreciated.
Will be in your area in October, and would like to verify any sources personally.
