    Notes 

    • (1) A household headed by Levi BISHOP is listed in the 1840 census of Union Township, Rush County, IN.

      Listed in Levi's household are 2 free white males under 5 years of age; 1 free white male between 30 and 40 years of age; and 1 free white female between 20 and 30 years of age.

      Assuming that Levi is the free white male listed in the 1840 census as then being between 30 and 40 years of age, he would have been born between 1800 and 1810, according to the 1840 census.

      Assuming that Levi's wife is the free white female listed in the 1840 census as then being between 20 and 30 years of age, she would have been born between 1810 and 1820, according to the 1840 census.

      Assuming that the other persons in Levi's household are children of Levi and/or his wife, those children would have consisted of 2 sons (both of which sons would have been born between 1835 and 1840, according to the 1840 census).

      (2) According to information obtained from Robert Webb and furnished to the compiler by Karen Peery, Levi BISHOP joined the West Liberty Church, also known as the Old Stone Church, in Sperry, Des Moines County, IA, in February 1847.

      (3) A household headed by Levi BISHOP is listed in the 1850 census of Pleasant Grove Township, Des Moines County, IA next to a household headed by his brother, William BISHOP, and near a household in which his father, Jonathan BISHOP, is listed.

      Levi is listed in the 1850 census as a carpenter who was then 40 years of age; therefore, according to the 1850 census, he was born in about 1810. According to the 1850 census, he was born in VA.

      Listed with Levi is his wife, Sarah, who was then 31 years of age; therefore, according to the 1850 census, she was born in about 1819. According to the 1850 census, she was born in VA.

      Also listed with Levi is his son, James, who was then 13 years of age; therefore, according to the 1850 census, he was born in about 1837. According to the 1850 census, he was born in IN.

      Also listed with Levi is his son, Jonathan, who was then 11 years of age; therefore, according to the 1850 census, he was born in about 1839. According to the 1850 census, he was born in IN.

      Also listed with Levi is his son, Zion, who was then 8 years of age; therefore, according to the 1850 census, he was born in about 1842. According to the 1850 census, he was born in IN.

      Also listed with Levi is his son[?], James[?], who was then 6 years of age; therefore, according to the 1850 census, he was born in about 1844. According to the 1850 census, he was born in IN. [The compiler believes that James may actually have been John.]
