In Reply to: William Frances Moore M. Rebecca Bishop Abt. 1840, Lunenburg County, VA. by Tom Moore of 683

I don't have any info about the Moore descendants, but do have a little pre-history about Rebecca Ann Bishop. She is mentioned in her grandfather (Edmund Bishop's) will dated 22 Jul 1828, proved in court Jul 1832.(Lunenburg Co)

"Tenth, I give and bequeath to my Grand Daughter Rebecca Ann Bishop: one Negro girl, Malinda and her future increase to her and her heirs forever".

Edmund was born about 1744, and married Sarah Connell (daughter of John and Mary Connell of Lunenburg)

Sarah pre-deceased Edmund

Edmund's children(mentioned in will):
Betsey Bishop Johnson
Sukey Bishop Overby (you will see her sons
living with Rebecca Bishop Moore in the 1850
Sally Bishop Harris
Mary (Molly) Bishop
Jeremiah Bishop
John Bishop ***my husband's ancestor**
Rebecca Bishop
Edmund Bishop Jr
Celia Bishop Morgan

** there may also be a William that pre-deceased Edmund**

Hope this adds to what you've got....I'm still researching this line all the time...
