Ada Pauline Giles Bishop
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Oct. 23, 1885
Colquitt County
Georgia, USA
Death: Nov. 21, 1930
Thomas County
Georgia, USA

According to her death certificate (D. D. Giles, informant,) Ada's parents were Colquitt County natives Nat and Sallie Giles. Another contributor has suggested that Ada's father was David Burnett "D. B." Giles. I found Mr. Giles living in Mill Creek, Colquitt, Georgia at the time of the 1900 U.S. Census, and he did have a daughter named "Ada." However, I can't find that D. B. Giles ever used the nickname "Nat," and so have to conclude that this is a different Ada Giles. (The contributor also suggested a maternal link, but that memorial is a burial unknown that has been plopped into a cemetery.)

J. E. Bishop and Ada Giles married May 19, 1901, in Colquitt County, Georgia. Their children were (or included:)
* Gladys Bishop McGuire (1903-1942,)
* David Bishop (born circa 1906,) and
* Norma Lee Bishop (born circa 1909.)
As of December 2006 this plot (5 N 20 8th West) held the graves of:
Ada Giles Bishop (1885-1930),
Pvt. Augustus W. Bishop (1829-1919), and
James Edgar Bishop (1878-1930).

Information re: burial location and
inscription came from 2006 survey
coordinated by the Morning Glory
Garden Club of Moultrie, Georgia

Additional information was taken from U.S. Census enumerations for 1910 (with spouse, children, and brother-in-law in Fitzgerald, Ben Hill, Georgia,) and 1920 (with spouse and children in Moultrie, Colquitt, Georgia;) Georgia, Marriage Records From Select Counties, 1828-1978 (married May 19, 1901, in Colquitt County;) and Georgia Death Certificate (added as .jpeg to memorial.)
