    Notes 
    Married:
    • Amanda VanHook, daughter of Samuel VanHook and Isabella Cox was born about 1818 in Pulaski County, Kentucky.

      Amanda married Noah Bishop 22 February 1838 in Pulaski County [marriage
      bonds, book 1, page 17]. The surety on the bond was Samuel VanHook
      (probably Amanda's father). Amanda Bishop is named in the settlement of her
      father's estate in 1873 [Pulaski Co., Ky. Deeds, volume 27, page 296]. Her
      husband is not mentioned there, so he had probably died by then.

      There is a Noah Bishop buried in the Higgins cemetery in Pulaski Co., off
      Bull Road, between highway 27 and Science Hill. His stone shows he was born
      24 November 1809 and died 28 September 1851. There is also an Isabel Bishop
      buried there (b. 31 July 1843, d. 6 October 1863) that may be a daughter of
      Noah and Amanda's, named for her grandmother.
