James Robbins Bishop (10/22/1815-4/14/1868)
I compiled the following from a family tree created by jwscott2830211 on the Family Search website:

James Robbins Bishop(10/22/1815-4/14/1868) was born in Williamsville Sussex County, Delaware, the son of Littleton Robbins BISHOP (1790-12/?/1860) and Margaret McGee (9/29/1790-2/2/1850) of Bishop, Worcester County, Maryland.

He was the brother of: Charlotte A. Bishop (1/20/1813->1860), William Bishop (8/18/1814-11/16/1842), Elizabeth Bishop (1/29/1817-9/11/1854), John Bishop (10/2/1818->1880), Ebenezer Bishop (1/9/1820-3/4/1868), Lemuel Bishop (3/28/1821-6/20/1839), Mary Jane Bishop (6/15/1822-8/15/1823), Littleton Robbins Bishop (5/15/1824-6/24/1915), Mary Ann Bishop (2/1/1826->1860), Dolly Stephenson Bishop (6/21/1827-<12/1/1860), Margaretta Bishop (1/13/1829-<12/1/1860) and Sarah Bishop (3/6/1834-?).

His first wife was Isabella M. Derrickson (4/14/1818-1/13/1849) who he married on May 9, 1841. They had 3 daughters: Anna Catharine (1/14/1843-2/18/1930) who is buried in the old Sound Methodist church cemetery at Roxana, DE., Martha Jane “Mattie” Bishop (1845-1923) who married to Levin Miller, and Mary Ellen Bishop (1/12/1848-7/11/1934) who married Josiah James Harrison (5/12/1844-8/22/1922). She is buried in Bishopville Cemetery with her husband.

His second wife was Sarah Hill Hall Bishop (8/2/1818-4/14/1907) who he married on January 23, 1850.

Their children were: Jonnie Bishop (1850-12/30/1861), Dr. Lemuel Augustus Hall Bishop (9/27/1852-3/13/1943), Maggie Bishop (11/1853-6/1854), James Robbins Bishop (4/1855-1945), Sarah C. Bishop (1856-1864) and Annie Bell Bishop (1/13/1859-12/3/1861). All were born in Delaware except Sarah who was born in St Martins District, Worcester County, Maryland.

Wondering if you are related to John Alexander Mitchell and Hazel Katie Hudson Mitchell. I am trying to locate information on their son John H Mitchell who was a WWII Veteran. Thanks!

Find A Grave Changes
A friend told me about this change a couple days after this was deployed. I have sent an edit/s to you so I thought maybe you didn't know about it. You might want to pass it on to your friends. thanks!!! ~Peggy

New "Automated" system for "Suggest a Correction/Submit an Edit"

******Please Note******
New System for Memorial Edits deployed by Find A Grave on 12/5/2013

Go to your Contributor/Profile page.
Look in the upper right corner. You should now see a tab called "Edits" - check there to see if any have been submitted to you. Then just review and accept.

Way easier for doing updates to names/dates/places/plot numbers/links. If you don't approve within 21 days it will automatically accept it.

You still will get e-mails to add info to bio section.

RE: George Baker tombstone
I suspect that George purchased the tombstone in 1917 when Sarah passed away and had both their names and dates of birth inscribed at that time. The responsibility for having the headstone updated when he passed would have fallen to whomever took care of the funeral arrangements. Most monument companies won't accommodate a "prepay", so George's heir likely opted not to incur the cost of having the stone etched with his date of death.

RE: Levin Steen grave
Thanks Larry. The memorial for Eliza A Steen, who appears to be Levin's first wife, is on Findagrave now (#11868981) but Levin's tombstone (if any) has no photo. Levin's second wife Sarah Eugenia (Hitchens) Steen is also interred here (#11868990). Both of Levin's wives died before he did. I appreciate your help! Steve Keefe

RE: Cora Belle Bright Uplinger Brekken
Well at least we do know she is in Elko and the Cemetery. More than what we had.

Glad I could help.
