Thomas Tillman Bishop was born in South Carolina around 1818. His family migrated to Wayne County, Ms. sometime around 1818. This Bishop family line is 100% confirmed. It is strongly believed that his father is Thomas Bishop. The story goes, that three brothers, Thomas, Esaias, and John, left S. C. around 1818 and migrated to Wayne County, Ms. Esaias and Thomas stayed in Wayne County, while John went to Lauderdale County, Ms. The only problem that we have run into is, both Esaias and Thomas named a son Thomas T. Bishop. We are not 100% sure which Thomas T. belongs to Easias and which to Thomas. Based upon census records, it appears that this Thomas T. Bishop belongs to Thomas.
