Henry Bishop emigrated to Ohio from Berkeley county, Virginia, in 1805. He purchased land in Huntington township in 1806, and died in 1820, at the advanced age of ninety-eight. His son, Robert, was seventeen years old when he came to Ohio with his father. He lived in Huntington till his death, which occurred in 1875. He married Sarah Hill, who came to Ohio, from Maryland, in 1807. They had a large family of children, nine of whom grew up. Two are now living in the township, viz: Robert, jr. and Mrs. Catharine Sellers. The elder Robert was a second sergeant in Captain George Yoakem's company in the war of 1812. For his services he received a warrant for forty acres of land, which he sold to a young man going west.
