DOCTOR DIED OF PNEUMONIA
C.H. Bishop, Formerly of Knoxville, Gives Life to His Profession.
Dr. C.H. Bishop, a former well known resident of the Lincoln neighborhood, west of town, died at his home in Trask, Mo., Sunday, March 9, 1919, aged 75 years, 3 months and 16 days. Such is the word received by his relatives, the Mrs. John Q. Bishop family, who were only appraised of the sad happening last week.
C.H. Bishop, familiarly known to the old settlers here as "Cal," was born in Albany, Athens Co., Ohio, Nov. 21, 1845. Ten years later he accompanied his parents, James and Silvey Bishop, to Marion county and settled four miles west of Knoxville, where he grew to manhood in what is now known as the Lincoln neighborhood.
We are without data as to when he left Knoxville; however, it is known
that he was a physician with a large practice at his home town in Missouri. He was always ready and willing to assist the sick and suffering, and his services were especially appreciated during the epidemic of influenze at Trask. Although past 73 years of age, he spent practically all his time during the epidemic in the commendable work of succoring the afflicted. Finally he fell a victim to the dread disease and died of pneumonia at the time stated in the opening.
He leaves his widow, one son and three daughters. Two of the daughters
are married and reside in the southern states. One daughter and the son are
still at home. He was a brother of the late John Q. Bishop of the Lincoln
neighborhood. The funeral and burial took place at Trask, Mo., March 11.
