Josie Whitehill Bishop
My great great grandfather is Sheriff Whitehill. Josie is my great great aunt. My mother, Doris Jeanne Bard Whitsett, remembers her well. Her mother was Doris Alice Dotson Bard. Mother always told us the story about the aunt that mined in the hills!! Thanks for all you do for Find a Grave.

Hi William,

Just to let you know when a search is made for Edward Marsh Jr in CA, it only shows his father.

Regards, Jerry

RE: Bishops - Dinwiddie/Lunenburg
Yes, I received it, and am waiting to send a more detailed reply.

We buried one of my first cousins this week, daughter of Edna Bishop Jones. She was too young to leave us.

Bishops - Dinwiddie/Lunenburg
Hi, we are connected to the same Bishop line, but mine remained in Lunenburg County.

My grandfather was Thomas (Tom) Eldridge Bishop Sr.

We are descended from James Bishop, too.

Thank you! I am glad I could help. My maiden name is Bishop. I am from Texas, but I have traced my family to VA as you have. ;)

RE: Henry Family
Hello again, William

I went back to the Historical Society Records that I previously told you about and the listing there shows him as Luther Paul. That is why I originally posted him that way. I left it as Luther Paul after visiting the cemetery, because that is something I'm used to seeing in my own family--the use of a first name as what I consider an honorary name and the middle name as the one used by the person in the everyday life.
Though the records from the Historical Society have proven to be very reliable, I have found that they are not without errors. If you feel like this is an error, I will be happy to change it.

RE: Clayton Cemetery, Overton
I believe I have made the links that you wanted. The information I have comes from the website maintained by the Cooper county Historical Society. Unfortunately, it is not easily searched, which is why, from time to time, I pick a cemetery and transfer their information to findagrave.
If you're not familiar with their website, there is a link to it on my contributor page.

Good Luck in your Search!

Alice Benway #124154564


I attached the parents to # 124154524 as you requested but realized afterwards it was not Alice. I discovered it too late--after I transferred it to to you.

That number is for Deemi Benway. But now that I have transferred Deemi Benway to you perhaps you could take the "parents" off ??

I will also transfer Alice to you and you will have both. That way you can attach the parents to the proper person.

Good luck.
