Brinkley Bishop was the son of William Wiley and Ascension Merritt Bishop. He married Elizabeth McMullen 17 Dec 1823. They were married in Halifax County, North Carolina. Brinkley was born in NC and I expect it was in Halifax Co. or nearby, but I have not yet proven that fact. By 1850, Brinkley and Elizabeth were well established on their Carroll Co., TN, farm. They raised 12 children that I have verified. Among these were six boys and six girls. They are:

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
Wiley Brinkley Bishop; 1836 1916
Mary Jane Bishop; 1837 1919
Ann Anna Bishop; 1841
George L. Bishop; 1843 1916

Of these children, Mary Jane, who married George Washington Bryant, was my Gx2 grandmother.

Rest peacefully my Gx3 grandfather Brinkley...
