~2nd Great Grand Uncle~

George is the son of Brinkley and Elizabeth McMullen Bishop. He was born in Carroll County, TN, where he lived many years. He was raised with 10 siblings - 6 girls and 4 boys. They were to my knowledge:

William Bishop 1824 1850
Sarah Ann "Sallie" Bishop 1826 1880
John Thomas Bishop 1827 1904
Lucy Myhand Bishop 1829 1888
Elizabeth F. "Eliza" Bishop 1832 1905
Joseph J Bishop 1832 1869
Letitia M "Lettie" Bishop 1834 1919
Wiley Brinkley Bishop 1836 1916
Mary Jane Bishop 1837 1919
Ann Anna Bishop 1841

On 29 Mar 1866, he married Elizabeth Juliet "Bettie" Burrow in Carroll Co., TN. They had 4 children to my current knowledge:

Jarrell Leonard Bishop 1869 1917
Lucy Hatty Bishop 1869
Charles C Bishop 1879
Jack C Bishop 1884

George was a farmer in Carroll County and between 1880 and 1900, he and Bettie moved to Johnson County, TX. They already had family there in the Cleburne area. Bettie died in 1906 and George followed 10 years later. However, in 1910, when his wife died, George lived with his son Jarrell Leonard, in Ft. Worth. Since he died in Cleburne, I would guess he moved back there with another one of his children.

Rest peacefully George - your family remembers....
