This is a family research being done by many family members who are working to document the ancestors and decendents of William George Estabrook/Eva Belle Johnson and George Washington Bishop/Pearl Mae Howard. Included in this project are as many inlaws and outlaws as we can possibly get information on.

My husbands family starts with William George Estabrook who was born around 1846 we do not know where or when exactly. We have information stating his parents were William and Laura Estabrook. William George joined the Union Army in 1863 and served with the Wisconsin 10th Light Artillery until his discharge. He claimed residence in LaCrosse Wisconsin at the time of his enlistment. He married Effie L Cressy in 1869 and fathered 3 daughters. This marriage was dissolved and he later married Eva Belle Johnson. Eva Belle was from the Juneau County, Wisconsin area. The were married in Trempealeau Wisconsin, on July 19, 1884. Together they had 10 children. These children were raised in the Illinois City, Illinois area and have remained in and around the area all of their lives. The surnames of the inlaws of these siblings are Dusenberry, Howard, Rennison, and Ross among others. My husbands mother's family begins with her father Alva Howard who married Mary Annn Hayes. They had 6 children and lived in the Rock Island County of Illinois.

My family starts with George Washington Bishop who was born April 26, 1871 in Madison Co. Illinois. His family moved to Missouri where he met Pearl Mae Howard. She was born September 8, 1880 in Miller Co. Missouri. They were married in Mt. Pleasent Missouri on July 1,1896. They had 7 children. The surnames included in these sibling inlaws are Vincent, Lane, Leishing, Gann and Meldrum plus others I don't know. My mothers side of the family includes her father Robert T Burns' family of Robert Preston Burns who married Maudie Ann Hawkins August 3, 1892. They had 12 children.
