About Alfred Allen Bishop

Alfred Allen Bishop, son of Alfred A. Bishop and Miss Greenstreet married Delilah Morgan Norris on June 14, 1827, in Carter County, Tennessee. There are researchers who believe her father is John Morgan.

1830 Sangamon Co, IL

1 male 20-30 Alfred (b. 1801 age 29)

1 female Mary (b. 1829 age 1)

1 female 20-30 Delilah (b. 1804 age 26)

The next census shows Alfred and Delilah joined up with a group of pioneers, some of whom had been in Sangamon County, Illinois, and others who had migrated from Warren County, Kentucky, and St. Louis County, Missouri. One of the group, Rev. Jonathan Burleson and future father in law to one of Alfred's daughters was a Cumberland Presbyterian minister.

1840 Ripley Co, MO

1 male under 5 Andrew (b. 1838 age 2)

1 male 10-15

1 male 30-40 Alfred (b. 1801 age 39)

2 females under 5 Emmeline (b. 1839 age 1)

Susan (b. 1836 age 4)

2 females 5-10 Rachel (b. 1832 age 8),

Jane (b. 1834 age 6)

1 female 10-15 Mary (b. 1829 age 11)

1 female 30-40 Delilah (b. 1804 age 36)

By 1850 Alfred appears in a group of settlers from Missouri in Fayette County, Texas. We assume he arrived before April 19, 1849 because his daughter married on that date in Fayette County.
