      (5) According to a transcription of tombstones in Old Stone Cemetery, Franklin Township, Des Moines County, IA <http://users.rootsweb.com/~iadesmoi/Toomstone/Franklin/old_stone_chur ch_cemetery.htm>, the tombstone of Lewis J. BISHOP shows that he was born on 8 Oct 1837 and died on 11 Jan 1929, and that he served in "CO G 45TH IA INFT 1861." All of the relevant census and military information which the compiler has examined indicates that Lewis was born in about 1840 or 1841, rather in 1837. Furthermore, James' Civil War service record indicates that his service in the Civil War began in 1864, rather than in 1861.
