These double Full Circles just seem to come in bunches. This one has lots of connections.
Abra had been doing some research about RS Bishop. She found out his name was Reynolds Strehlow Bishop.
His daughter Phila Emma Bishop had been featured previously.
Abra found relatives on Ancestry and she emailed me that one of the tree owners Mae ( last name) wanted the photos.
Well low and behold! Don’t that beat all. There is only one Mae and Stephen and they lived next door to us when we lived in North Dakota. I gave Mae a call and we had a good laugh..and had fun catching up with each other. I explained that I had several other photos that have not been published on the blog..but were interesting enough for me to purchase because of the names on the back.
Here are those photos:
Enderlin 1939 Dad and Phila unknown..but I thought it looked like Phila and RS Bishop
Unknown but possibly Gordon Bishop
This photo is marked on the back At Gordon Bishops
Then we have the Strehlow Connection ( RS Bishop is Reynolds Strelow Bishop).
This is Eugenia Strelow Meilicke ( Photo Number 134) who is more than likely related. Her photo was returned to relatives on the Meilicke side of the family. I made Mae and Stephen a CD copy of the scans.
This is Wm. Strelow Photo Number 659 When I located his relatives they did not want his photo. He is Mrs. R J (Emma) Bishop’s Father, and that is the connection to the Bishops..of course he was also Eugenia Meilicke’s Father too.
I received the photos Thank you! I will talk to some of the relatives in Casselton to see if they know of the Strelow family. Thank you for the CD also, I have been digging in and adding to my family notes since! I hope you both stay well. Mae
During one of our phone calls she said the the Bishops were Great Uncles of Stephens and he loved the ties they wore. In fact every St Patricks’ Day he wears one of his Uncles ties.
It was a good full circle..I enjoyed it as it unfolded. Many thanks to Abra!
Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)
