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 I'm wondering if it is a different person, as all the historical documents place the Younger's buriel in Nespelem, and the Older's in Wallowa, Oregon.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.
