Person #122 Child Wife Father Mother <Previous><Next> A, D, G, 5, 6, ?
   Name: Peter Bishop
   Born: c1780
  Place: PA or VA
   Died: 1850+
 Buried: 

I don't have perfect proof that Euphemia Ashenhurst was the daughter of Peter Bishop. The best indication is this statement from an undated Ashenhurst history by an unnamed author. I don't know who "he" is in reference to:

Euphemia's father's name was Peter Bishop (Eunie's grandmother) but he doesn't know if the grandmother had any brothers or sisters or her mother's maiden name. A daughter of John Ashenhurst, Oliver's brother, married a Valentine Bishop. Her name was Nancy and she would have been Euphemia's niece. He doesn't know whether Valentine was any relation to Euphemia or not.1

The relationships stated in the entire "history" are rather confusing but the above paragraph would parse out in this manner:

                          Peter Bishop
      |---------------|        |
John Ashenhurst   Oliver m Euphemia
      |          Ashenhurst
   Nancy m
Valentine Bishop

James G Ashenhurst states in a letter dated 27 Aug 1982:

I recall soneone [sic] saying that [Euphemia] had a brother, James, who was a United Presbyterian minister, or maybe it was missionary.

And an online article entitled "The McManis Family in Adams County, Ohio" [link] by Doris Lucille McManis Camden states,

The second wife of Joseph McManis was Mary Bishop, also known as Polly, daughter of Peter Bishop. The marriage took place on March 21, 1839 or 1840. Her death occurred in June of 1845. There were three children born to this marriage.2

With that we have the possibility of four of Peter's children being identified: Valentine (c1807-), Euphemia (1809-1884), Mary (-1845), and James.

The assertion that Euphemia was born in Brown county cannot be technically correct as that county was not formed until 1818, its parent counties being Adams and Clermont counties, both of which were forged from Hamilton county, 1797 and 1800, respectively. This map is said to represent the Ohio county boundaries of 1803. Byrd township, Peter's home, appears to have been in Adams county from 1800-1818.

Peter Bishop's Possible Family

Valentine Bishop c1807- He married Nancy Ashenhurst.
Euphemia Bishop 1809-1884 She married Oliver Ashenhurst
Mary Bishop -1845 She married Joseph McManis.
James Bishop   His presence here is questionable.
Peter Bishop c1826-  
Elizabeth Bishop c1829-  
David Bishop c1833-  

Peter Bishop in Ohio

According to the 1880 census entry for Peter's daughter, Euphemia Ashenhurst, both parents of her were born in Virginia. However, the 1850 census for Peter clearly states he was born in Pennsylvania. Whether it be Virginia or Pennsylvania, he probably would not have been related to the Bishops in Perry township, Brown county, Ohio as their roots are believed to have been in Vermont and England.

Peter Bishop appears on the following census for 1820. If we presume that he is the eldest male listed (45+) he'd have been born in 1775 or earlier. However, that man could have been any elder male living with the family. My first guess is that Peter was the younger male, 26-45. If the reading is accurate, his wife was either absent from the household or deceased.

    1 male under 10       James?
    1 male 10-16          possibly Valentine
    1 male 26-44          probably Peter
    1 male 45+            his father?
    1 female under 10     possibly Mary
    2 females 10-16       probably Euphemia

The 1830 census for Byrd township lists two Bishops, with Peter being 40-50, placing his birth in the 1780s.

    pg 399 Valentine Bishop   1000100000000 0000100000000

On the 1840 census, Peter appears as aged between 60-70. This would put his birth in the 1770s. If these two readings are accurate, he may have been sitting on the cusp of the decade, making his birth year right around 1780.

Finally, the 1850 census entry confirms that Peter was probably born in 1780. And we see that he moved across the county line into Adams county.

    Margaret          8 f   Ohio

I believe this is the remnants of the Valentine Bishop family, Nancy Bishop being his widow and daughter of John Ashenhurst (see descendancy chart above) and Elizabeth Allen being his daughter, Malinda E Bishop. I've been unable to trace these families any further.

Bishops in Virginia

There are no indications from where in Virginia, if Virginia at all, that Peter came from. If we assume that the eldest male found in his household in 1820 was his father we might guess that father and son went to Ohio together. There are two Peter Bishops found on the 1810 census for Wythe county, Virginia. Again, it is merely speculation that we are looking at the correct entries but, from the sparse data known to date, it fits.

Interestingly, there is no male of sufficient age in the following entry to qualify as the head of household.

There is one other Bishop given for Wythe county:

The 1793 tax list for Wythe county lists the following Bishops:4

No Bishops are found on the 1820 census for Wythe county.

A google search finds only two mentions of a Peter Bishop in Wythe county.

Catherine Bishop (1786-1881), the daughter of Peter Bishop and Margaret Bischof, married Jacob Sheffer in Wythe county 24 Dec 1802.3

A Peter Bishop administered the estate of Peter Penner 8 May 1798. Peter Penner had married Mary Bishop. We can assume, then, that there may have been familial link between Mary and Peter Bishop. [link]

An email I received in Nov 2011 from Roscoe Montgomery tells me that "A marriage between Robert Montgomery and Polly [Mary?] Bishop occurred in Wythe County, Virginia 25 Aug 1815. Polly's father is named as "Peter Bishop." [source is familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.2/9SRP-JHB/p4]

Catherine Shaffer is found on the 1880 census for Black Lick, Wythe county, Virginia with her son Joseph Shaffer, 55. Catherine is listed as 101 years old, born in Virginia and both parents born in Virginia.

Bishops in Pennsylvania

Peter Bishop would certainly have been a child in 1790. Since I have no real clue as to where he resided I'm limiting this to the name Peter. After all, there's always the oustide chance that his father was also a Peter. That's not good genealogy but does reel in the scope of the research until better clues are found.

Two Peter Bishops are found on the 1800 census for Pennsylvania. Both men may have been too old to have been our Peter.

1. The three page history appears to be abstracts and summaries of letters concerning the family's history, including at least one letter from my great-grandmother, Euphemia Ruth (Ashenhurst) McDowell, to "Mr McNeese," dated 1 Dec 1962. Eunie (in reference to "Grandma McDowell") is mentioned throughout.

2. Camden lists their children as being Alexander McManis (1841-1932), Francis Joseph McManis (1845-1889) and Elizabeth McManis who died in childhood. Note that an article in The History of Brown County, Ohio (1883) for Mary's stepson, Samuel McManis, states that she and Joseph married in 1840.[link]. Her son Alexander McManis is found on the 1900 census for Riley co KS (page 115) stating that both parents were born in PA.

3. Jacob Sheffer was born 9 Sep 1783, Virginia, died 11 Apr 1874. Parents were Daniel Sheffer and Ann Hudlow.
