Seth B Bishop
Birth: Feb. 29, 1852
Death: Jul. 15, 1933
Penn Yan
Yates County
New York, USA

Seth attended Penn Yan Academy. He was a carpenter, wagon maker, postmaster of Jerusalem township under Pres. Cleveland for 4 years, then assistant postmaster. He married Lorinda Wilcox who died after 14 years of marriage, then Clara A Graham and finally Margaret Burke. He was a Democrat;also built boats, houses, head body builder for Penn Yan Bus co. in old age; and a member Methodist Episcopal Church of Bluff Point, NY.

I found a letter from Seth's grandaughter-in-law (Florence) who did the original "legwork" to locate Seth's death record. Apparently Seth's dates had not been put on the stone at the time of his death. She and Milton had them added in 1965.
