From the Indiana Historical Society which is home to a collection of diaries and papers of Rev. Bishop:
John M. Bishop (1819–90) was an itinerant Presbyterian pastor in Indiana during the mid- to late nineteenth century. Born in Lexington, Kentucky, he graduated from Miami University (Ohio) and Lane Theological Seminary in the early 1840s. His entire ministerial career was spent serving or establishing churches in Indiana. When not riding circuit he made his headquarters in New Albany (1850), Bedford (1852–60), Bloomington (1860–67), Rockville (1868–72), Lebanon (1873–79), Covington (1881–83), and Rockfield (1884). Other churches he served or visited throughout his career were located in Mitchell, Seymour, Crawfordsville, Hopewell, and Veedersburg. He also made occasional trips to Oxford, Ohio, to Lane Seminary, and to several Presbyterian assemblies.
On 10 November 1846 Bishop married Lucy D. North (1823–1888) of Oxford. They had seven children, only three of whom (Deming, Fannie, and North) lived past childhood.
Bishop retired from the ministry in 1887.
