I am placing him in Old Magee so that he will be able to be found when someone is searching in Mississippi and not all of findagrave.

Born in SC or VA
Died after 1850

Ezekiel Bishop and his wife Nancy Street come to Simpson County Mississippi from South Carolina in a covered wagon between 1815 and 1818. They settled about two miles north of Magee, Mississippi. (Notes from L.P. Bishop Jr. June 1989)
