Surnames: Adair, Bishop, Spence
Looking for the family of bros Joshua and Archibald Bishop - Archibald b. ca 1790 probably
married to Martha Spence, daughter of David Spence b. 1777. A July 1827 letter from Joshua
in Newberry mentions "Elijah, mother and Mercy" and "John Adair and wife" living on the old
plantation in Lawrence (Laurens) ; also "Josiah and wife in Columbia" - he also mentions a
William Bishop who went from SC to Montgomery AL and died of "epidemic fever" - lastly
mentions a "Holoway" who m. Miss Thompson in Feb 1827 and was living in Holmsville, MS.
The Bishop and Spence families ended up in Hale Co AL. They might have come through Hopkinsville, KY on the way
They also intermarried with the Wilburn and Keaton families and used the names "Holly" and "Sampson" as given names.
If
this sounds familiar to anyone please contact me.
