  • Notes 
    • The family is in Jackson, Missouri in 1860. The IRS lists him in Iowa in 1863. John is in partnership blacksmithing with Benjamin W. G. Gould in Winterset, Iowa in 1865. The family appears in Iowa in 1870 and 1880 and 1885 and then in Seattle, Washington in 1887. He appears in an 1890s City Directory for Seattle as “Bishir & Vehrs” blacksmiths.

      Research Notes: In 1870 the family includes a Hannah Bisher, listed out of order, age 17. She does not appear with the family in the 1860 census, so she may be enumerated with the wrong surname or is a cousin?

      Winterset Madisonian, Winterset, Iowa
      December 21, 1898

      J. H. BISHIR

      J. H. Bishir, who has lain at the point of death for a long time, passed away at six o'clock last Tuesday evening. Funeral was at 2 p.m. Thursday, at the Church of Christ.

      Mr. Bishir was one of the old residents of Winterset. He came here in the early sixties, and, except for a few years spent in Washington, has made his home here ever since. He was 79 years of age.

      The Madisonian voices the general feeling in expressing sympathy for the affliced family.

      Note: Burial in the Rock City cemetery.
