Anna Friou Bishop
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: May 22, 1859
Ellis County
Texas, USA
Death: Oct. 13, 1935
Fort Worth
Tarrant County
Texas, USA

Anna is the daughter of Samuel and Mary Virginia Jones Friou. She had to my knowledge, 12 siblings. There were 6 sisters and 6 brothers. However, I do not list them here as I have not proven all the names. You may email me if you'd like me to look them up for you or give you what I have.

Anna Friou and Wylie Brinkley Bishop were married Jan 11 1885, in Johnson Co., Texas. She was his second wife. They had 6 girls and they are:

Mamie Anna Bishop 1886 1917
TWINS: Virgie Faye Bishop 1887
Wiley Maye Bishop 1887
Norma Bishop 1892
Ora Kate Bishop 1895
Zola L. Bishop 1899 1996

Wylie preceded Anna by 19 years at the age of 80. Anna was my 2nd GG aunt by marriage.

DEATH CERTIFICATE AGE: Anna's TX Death Cert shows she was 76 at time of death. She died 13 Oct 1935 so that would mean she was born in 1859. However, there are two errors. One is the obvious incorrect birth year on her headstone, and the other is that the death certificate shows her age of 76 but shows a birth year of 1849 and should be 1859 based on age at death. Several records show the headstone year of 1863. Assuming she was actually 76 at time of death, I am using 1859 for her birth year. Markers are wrong more times than we know so based on age at time of death, this is the best year of birth I can come up with. Feel free to disagree.

Rest in eternal love and peace Anna...
