Charles William Bishop of Loudoun Co. VA and Sebastian Co. AR
Posted by: Mimi Bishop (ID *****4258) Date: May 11, 2008 at 08:22:41
  of 1800

We would appreciate any information that you can provide about Charles W. Bishop, his wife Rebecca, and their children, grandchildren, and other descendents. We are trying to document the descendents of John Bishop II (1739-1828) and any information that you can provide about his grandson Charles W. Bishop will certainly help.

Charles William Bishop was born 25 Mar. 1826 in Loudoun Co. VA, the son of Aquilla Bishop and Jemima (Polly) Violet. Aquilla Bishop was the son of John Bishop II and his second wife Catherine Iden. Charles W. Bishop died 20 Oct. 1891 in Sebastian Co. AR.

Charles W. Bishop grew up in Loudoun Co. VA near the boundary with Fauquier Co.VA. Sometime after 1850 he moved to Oklahoma Territory and seems to be in the “Creek Nation” Indian Territory from 1855-1860 with a wife named Rebecca who was born in NY. In 1859, he acquired land in Sebastian Co. AR. Sometime between 1860-1870, he moved to Sebastian Co. AR and seems to have lost his wife circa 1860-1870. Does anyone know Rebecca’s maiden name and her exact birth, marriage, and death dates?

Charles and Rebecca had three children: Mary, Robert, and Rebecca.

1. Mary H. (or Margaret) Bishop was born ca. 1855-57 in Creek Nation Indian Territory. She married James A. Anderson 5 Oct. 1880 in Sebastian Co. AR. Does someone have any additional information about her? Does anyone know her exact birth and death dates or whether she had any children?

2. Robert A. Bishop was born circa 1858-59 in Creek Nation Indian Territory. He died 16 Feb. 1944 in Sebastian Co. AR. He married Lillie Ada Hendricks on 21 Dec. 1879 in Sebastian Co. AR. She was born in AR in Mar. 1860 and she died in Sebastian Co. AR 24 Feb. 1939. Her father was born in AR and her mother was born in CN or OH. The 1900 census says she had 7 children and 3 were still living in 1900.

a. Mabel I. Bishop was born Nov. 1880 in AR.

b. Nina C. Bishop was born Aug. 1883 in AR. She married W. S. Wright prior to 1906.

i. William R. Wright was born circa 1905-6 in AR.

ii. Nina Margery Wright was born circa 1914 in AR.

iii. James E. (Bobbie) Wright was born circa 1917 in AR.

c. James W. Bishop was born Dec. 1896 in AR. James married Willie ??? on 17 Sep. 1920. They were divorced on 4 Nov. 1926 in Sebastian Co. AR. We do not know if he ever married again or had any children. He cannot be found in the 1930 Federal Census. Any help here would be very much appreciated.

3. Rebecca V. Bishop was born ca. 1860-1863 in Creek Nation Indian Territory. She married D’Arcey Lake 21 Dec. 1882 in Sebastian Co. AR. Does anyone know her exact birth and death dates or whether she had any children?

Any additional information that you can provide about Charles W. Bishop, his wife Rebecca ???, and their children, grandchildren, and other descendents would be greatly appreciated.
