RE: Lucille Bishop memorial 143728863
I found James Francis' obituary in the Nevada State Journal (Reno, NV) on November 3, 1936 edition. It lists Mrs. James Bishop of Fort Bliss, TX, as one of his daughters. So, I added the links.

Thank you,
Ana Anaya

RE: 6392678 Mrs. Frances
Thanks for your persistence! She died in Kimshew, not Nimshew. That was a big booboo on me. I deleted the earlier edit and made a new one that doesn't have the town. Kimshew isn't on the "list", so I left it empty. Thank you again... Valice
