Subject: Bishir/er's in Benton Co.

Surnames: Bishir

I am searching for any and all Bishir's or Bisher's in Benton Co. Some may have descended from Fannie Bisher (seen as Basher) and Paul Smith from Oxford. Fannie was a daughter of Albert (mid initial K or R) Bishir, who was a son of the infamous Jeremiah Bishir of White Co. IN. I have just found out that Albert (wife Angeline Sutton/or Ridgely) had 4 children: Fannie, Mattie, May and Arthur. I have found Arthur's WW 1 draft registration: he was born 18 oct 1896, I believe his wife's name is Bernice Eleanor (unknown maiden name). They lived at RR 12 in Boswell. Fannie and Paul Smith lived in Oxford and had a son, Robert. They are buried in Oxford Cem. Can anyone help me with Mattie and May and any descendents of the children of Albert and Angeline?

Some may be descendents of Jeremiah Bishir and Victoria Worthington (he is a son of the above mentioned Jeremiah).

I found an Edward E. "Bud" Bishir' s obit online at the Journal and Courier's site. How does he tie in?

HELP!!! This line is driving me crazy!!!! But I love it! thanks!
