Documentation:
* The death record of Louis James BISHOP gives his father's name as Jim Childs BISHOP. My grandmother (Nettie Abigail Jones SHOEMAKE) gave me the name of James C. BISHOP and said he had a brother Bill, and sisters Ann WILKINS, Sallie JOHNSON, and Nancy RAGSDALE.
* In 1880, living with James and his wife is Cornelia Bell, age 15, listed as niece. Enough is known about the family of Mary Elizabeth Frazier BISHOP to say Cornelia BELL was a niece of James BISHOP.
* These families lived in the Frio and Atascosa County area. James BISHOP first shows up on the 1860 census of Atascosa County, Texas living with Simpson and Matilda MCCOY.
* Family stories say James, his wife Mary, his sister, Ann, and brother-in-law Dwight G. WILKINS are buried in the Brummett Cemetery in Frio County, Texas.
