Notes for JOHN SHERMAN BISHOP:

John was a Carpenter and member of UB Church in Cumberland, MD

Notes from Robert Bishop:

Sherman as he was known to his family was a carpenter for the B & O railroad. He made canvas curtains for steam locomotives. He made tents from the left over canvas for his fishing trips with his sons. He built his own home and helped his two sons, Harold and Clarence build their homes. He always had a big garden and shared with his family. He did all the grocery shopping for his wife. He was a hard worker and could do most anything with his hands. He was a member of the Methodist Church.

More About JOHN SHERMAN BISHOP:

Burial: Unknown, Hillcrest Cemetery, Cumberland, MD

Notes for AMANDA CHARLOTTE WILLISON:

Some researchers show Amanda being born in 1879. After looking at the various census I do not think this is correct. (See note for Jacob Willison). In the 1880 census Amanda has a younger brother, Jessy, that was one year old. She is listed as being 4. Later censuses show her with a birth year of 1879 but this must be an error. The month and day are from the family bible. The month agrees with the 1900 census.

I will attempt to locate Amanda's birth records and verify her "real" birth date.

Notes for RUTH ODELLA BISHOP:

Information from Barbara Bishop Rogers:

At birth Ruth weighed only a pound. At that time it was almost unheard of for a baby to survive with such a low birth weight. I have been told that her Mother kept her alive by putting her in the oven to keep her warm. Ruth was a kind and thoughtful person who loved collecting trinkets and reading movie magazines. She worked for the Celanese in Cumberland. She was married twice, her first marriage was to Dick Joyce, a pilot, who also worked for Celanese. They were divorced and she married Otis D. Wilkins and they moved to the Baltimore area. She retired for disabilities from Reid-Avery Co. in 1971 after working there as a wire operator for 14 years. She was a member of the Dundalk Church of the Brethren. She was married to Otis for 33 years.
