Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello friends,
I'm Julie Bishop, daughter of Ernest W. Bishop and LeDora Frances Jones Bishop. The Jones are from Neodesha, KS and the Bishops are from Elizabethton, TN. If you go back far enough, the Jones are from Wales, and the Bishops are from Scotland. I enjoy genealogy and have been working on my lines since reading the book Roots in the 1970's.
My grandmother was ill and bed-ridden, but could remember people and dates back to before the Civil War, I would sit with her and write down names and dates and places. Now I have a passion for information about the people who made me me.
This is a great site, because it is not possible for me to go and find all the graves of all my ancestors, but this is a good way to get pictures of the headstones and if I'm lucky a picture of the person too.

Chief Joseph in Swinomish, Skagit Co. WA
I think there were also family named Chief and checking on this. The Chief Joseph, of Wallowa Co. Oregon was buried in Nespalem. Going through moms notes, and she knew much about him. She wrote bio info and I will compile and send soon Dad died and had service in July, so am juggling at the moment. But may be able to add to the info on Joseph. Am working on the Swinomish Cem and sorting out some of the info.

I know Chief Joseph has several cenotaphs,as "areas" he resided, throughout Oregon and Washington. I believe his actual burial place was Nespalem.

Please let me know if you know further from earlier info.

Thanks for your info on the memorials-

Edmonds, Wa

Chief Joseph in Coville
died in Sep. 21, 1904, which is a different date than the headstone you have photographed in Skagit County. The only thing you need to do is delete the quote of the surrender speech and the link to Chief Joseph the Elder, which will make both pages correct. Your Chief Joseph is from a different tribe.

re: Chief Joseph
There is a large headstone for him in Nespelem, Washington. Can you tell me what is the history of the headstone in the photo in your page on a Chief Joseph? I'm wondering if it is a different person, as all the historical documents place the Younger's buriel in Nespelem, and the Older's in Wallowa, Oregon.

Will you transfer?
I am wondering if you will please transfer Henry Armstrong #116424275 to me. He was my great great Grandfather. I would like to bring him in to the family and add his parents, son and daughter to his memorial. I'll also add his obituary.

Thank you for managing his memorial.

So very sorry...I goofed. I did not mean to leave a genealogy request at this site. I would erase it if I could. Disregard please.

I am intrigued with this Eli Mounts (Captain Eli Polk Mounts). Could you tell me something about him and what might be his relationship to a family that I believe he was living with in 1850. On the 1850 census of Lee County, Iowa there is a Charles Morsey (should be Morse) and his wife Delight with a daughter Olive. Eli Mounts and his sister (?) Julia A. Mounts are living with the Morses. I have been trying to find out more of what happened to those children as well as with the Morse's daughter Olive. I believe she married a Levi Bennett and had two children by the name of Charles B. (after her father) Bennett and her daughter Angeline Bennett (census spelled their last name wrong Benny. Olive was the daughter in law of Clark Bennett and his second wife Mary. I am related to Clark Bennett and his first wife Elizabeth Smith who died in Genesee County, New York. On the 1850 census with the Morse family in Lee County, Iowa it says that Julia was born in Illinois and Eli was born in Iowa. I would like to correspond with you on these people. My email address is: Thank you for your time.

RE: Lyle Pacard
Both Lyle and Doris' markers are in a very shady location. Lyle's marker was dry but Doris' wasn't and had more moss on it than Lyle's. I might try her marker again later in the day sometime in hopes of a better picture.
