Bio: Minerva Yawger Bishop was the daughter of Philip L. Yawger and Mary Ann Hoagland. She was born and raised in the Town of Springport, Cayuga Co., New York. Minerva married Joseph Bishop, Jr., son of Joseph Bishop, Sr. and his 3rd wife, Mary White, widow of Daniel Hoyt, sometime before 1870. Minerva and Joseph, Jr. resided at Springport until at least 1876 but appear in the 1880 census at Pennfield Township, Calhoun Co., Michigan where Joseph was a Farmer. Minerva's parents removed to Michigan in 1878, along with Alonzo Howell, husband of Minerva's sister, Eliza. Minerva died in 1900. Joseph thereafter lived at Battle Creek and resumed work as a Carpenter, the trade he had followed before settling in Michigan. Minerva and Joseph are not known to have had any children.
