    Birth records with parents name for Thomas Bishop 1801 or 1802 Washington County, NY died 1871 Muncie IN*


      Does anyone know the names of the parents of Thomas Bishop born 27 Oct. 1801 or 1802 in Washington County, NY and died 20 July 1871 in Delaware County Muncie IN?


      My maiden name is Bishop and my 3rd Great Grandfather, Thomas Bishop has several records I have located, but I need to know the name of his parents in order to continue my search.


      Thomas Bishop had a brother named Levi born 1794, and a sister Mary E. Bishop Gilbert born in 1797.

      These siblings were also born in Washington County NY and buried in Delaware County IN. The cemetary that Thomas, Levi and Mary are buried in is Beech Grove Cemetary in IN


      One of the documents located, lists Levi and Mary as half siblings to Thomas Bishop.

      Thomas Bishop married Rebecca Sparks 1804-1875 in NY in 1824.


      Being able to leave this question and information related to it, makes me hopeful.

      Thank you,
