Beasley, Matthew S. Biography
Bishop, John Private Bishop John d. 1863

Several sources (excluding Polk's) list a John Bishop serving in Co I, 4th TX but as much as it pains me, I have to ask you to take him out of Winkler's list. I know he is listed and I believe he probably started to join, but he did not leave Corsicana and he did not died in 1863. He is one of my ancestors and he was one of those that some want to hid under a bush. Not me. He was a rustler, outlaw. I believe him to be buried at Hamilton Beeman and we put a marker by the side of his wife. I do not know where he is buried for sure. He did, well, is listed as serving with Co A, McKie's Sqd. Morgan's Reg't 20 TX. AND I HAD ENOUGH PROOF FOR THAT TO GET HIS GRAVE MARKER.   I would give anything to have him as one of Hood's Texas boys but it just ain't so. Hood's Texans, they are our hero's. Norman has one buried near Waco. But John Bishop is not one. I have a family picture taken in front of their home out at Retreat, if you would like it I can send it. It is not clear but it was taken late in 1860. It is in a cotton field it looks like. <

He appears as present for duty at all other times until his death during the Battle of Gettysburg. According to his obituary, he died on July 3, 1863. However, other sources state that he was killed during the assault on Little Round Top on July 2. According to John Spencer in From Corsicana to Appomattox, Joseph Harris and James Polk were the first men to reach a Federal battery near Devil's Den. "Harris, anxious to see where the Federals have gone, puts his hand on one of the guns and looks over it toward the Federals; just then a shell explodes near them, Harris turns, his face white as sun-bleached cow bones, and tries to walk, but the seal of death is already on him and he falls near Polk, his chest ripped apart by shrapnel." His obituary states that he participated in "nine severe battles" prior to his death; likely they included Seven Pines, Gaines' Mill, Second Manassas, Antietam, and Fredericksburg.
