Hi folks,
I am looking for an obit for Pearl Lester , the 2 year, 8 month old daughter of Harley Lester and Lillie Bishop.
Pearl died Dec.22,1914 in Iowa however according to Margueritte Tice's book there was an obit for her in the Floyd Press . Since the family members were still in Va. (some of them) I suppose this is why it was put in the paper there. I went to the library in the city near me where the obit was to be here and the librarian told me that a previous person who had worked there stole those years from the library!Pearl was my grandmothers child.
Thanks for any help on this!
I am also looking for two other for Jacob Richard Bishop b. Dec 9, 1857 and died March 5,1915 . Jacob had been a long time resident of Montgomery County, Va.
And last but not least Alma Bishop , dau. of Jacob Bishop and Nannie Bower....all I have is an estimated date of 1905.She was "about 16 at the time of her death."
Any help with these would be so appreciated! I have been looking for this info for a long time.
