John C. Bishop served in the Revolutionary War, and his great-grandson, Isaac T. Bishop, holds a $15 bill with which the patriot was paid for service in that conflict. In 1765 he married Abigail Reynolds and to this union was born: Abram, November 1, 1766 in Granville, Washington County, New York. On September 12, 1799 in Dutchess, New York, Abram Bishop married Miss Anna Truman Bond, born October 5, 1783, who died January 11, 1870 in Somers Township, on the farm of her son, Jacob. She had been afflicted with blindness for fifteen years prior to her death. Their family of fifteen children has all passed away. Abram Bishop died April 13, 1830 and was buried in the Bishop burying ground at Granville, New York and a city has grown around what was once a secluded spot.
