Murky Jane BISHOP MEEK
I am looking for information on Murky Jane Bishop the dau/o Rhoda
CARMACK & James (Hammerhead) Bishop. According to my family notes she
would have been the 4th child of 10. born about 1872. Her married
Name is MEEK. She is not listed on the 1880 Owsley co census, It lists
the first 5 as:
Nancy M. b. 1870 m. Henry GAY
Kissey b. 1871 m. MOORE
Mary b. 1871 m. ROBERTSON
Issac b. 1873
Theophelus b. 1876
Isabelle b. 1878 m. GABBARD
The 1900 Clay co. census lists:
Momroe b. 1881
Lucy b. 1887 m. ALLEN
Marthy b. 1887 m. WEBB
Are there any MEEKS, BISHOPS, CARMACKS that have a Murky Jane BISHOP
in their tree. Tell me where to look next. Thanks for your help.
I am new at this - but fascinated by the vast amount to information and
genealogical research accomplished on the internet. I need your help!
I am trying to document and find all the Children of Rhoda Carmack b.
Dec 18, 1845, d. July 4, 1907 & James ( Hammerhead ) Bishop b. Dec. 15,
1843, d. Aug. 1, They lived in Clay & Owsley Co. I have from the 1880
the info on:
Nancy M Bishop b. 1870 Owsley co. m. Henry GAY
Kissey Bishop b. 1871 " m. MOORE
Mary Bishop b. 1871 " m. ROBERTSON
Issac Bishop b. 1873 "
Theophelus Bishop b. 1876 "
Isabelle Bishop b. 1878 " m. GABBARD
These next 4 - I have family info but not real documentation. They are
not on 1900 census of Owsley co. Rhoda and James died in 1907 and 1901
and were ill before they died - probably were with one of the children.
What happened to the 4 young children? Did they stay in the Area? Does
anyone recognize these Surnames. The twins Lucy and Martha lived a long
time. Hope someone can give me a clue or tell me where to look next.
Monroe Bishop b. 1881 d. 1902
Lucy Bishop b. 1887 d. 1936 m. ALLEN
Martha Bishop b. 1887 d. 1981 m. WEBB
Murky Jane Bishop b. ? ? m. MEEK
My grandmother was Nancy M. BISHOP GAY. Yesterday on this Magic Box a
kind researcher found my great grandparents Rhoda CARMACK and James
BISHOPs burial site. Laurel Point on the Rocky Branch - Newfound Rd.
Thanks - hope you can help me fit the puzzle pieces together.

I'm looking for information on my COPELAND line.
Sarah Copeland was born 1787/88 in Owsley Co., KY. She married Joh
Wolf(e) in Garrard Co., KY, Mar. 21, 1809. I've been told one of their
children, Nathan Wolfe, was born near Booneville Jan. 15, 1811.
I believe her parents were John Jacob Copeland and Annie Henton(?).
Anyone searching this line?
Any help would be appreciated. I do have info. on Nathan descendants.
