I am looking for information on my father's side of my family. I have been able to find information that has led me to my gg grandfather, David A. Bishop, b 1823, Ulster Co. NY. He married Sarah Elizabeth Bevier 4 September 1845 in Sugar Loaf Hollow, near Grahamsville, Sullivan Co. I beleive they were married in the Reformed Dutch Church. They lived in Rockland, Sullivan Co., and appear in the 1850 US Census. He was listed as an oar maker. They had seven children, Conrad, b. 1846, Mary E., b. 1847, Jacob, b. 1850, David J, b. Apr 1854, Asa, b. 1857, Alonzo, b. 1858, and Harvey, b. 1863. David A. enlisted in the NY 156th, Infantry Regiment, Company D, on 27 August 1862, along with his eldest son Conrad. David A. died in Baton Rouge, LA 22 August 1863, and is buried there. Conrad was dicharged 6 November 1863 with a disability from a shotgun wound that resulted in the left arm being usless for combat. I believe he may be the son of James Bishop of Olive, Ulster Co., but need to substantiate that further.
I am also looking for information on his wife, Sarah Elizabeth Bevier. I believe she was born approximately 1826 in Ulster Co., and may be the daughter of Johannes B. Bevier and Nancy ????
I would like to be able to confirm the links between James Bishop and David A. Bishop, and Sarah E. Bevier and Johannes B. Bevier. I have run into a wall that spans approximately the period between 1800 and 1850 and need help to establish the connections. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
