Emanuel resided :. In 1936, Rte 1, Rawson, OH. (1936) Emanuel Bishop, step-son of Alfred P Gorby, was born on his grandfather's farm in Orange Twp, Hancock Co, OH, where he still resides. His life has been spent in agricultural work, but he is now retired and still living on the old home place.

He united with the Riley Creek Baptist Church, which was organized in his father's home, when only 12 years of age. He has always been active in Sabbath School work, and when quite a young man was ordained deacon in the church and still holds this office.

Mr Bishop is what may be termed a many sided Christian, for no matter from what angle one approaches him, the Christ Spirit is always there. He is one of those Christians whose religion stands out in relief upon his kindly, almost saintly, face, surrounded by snow-white hair and beard. Some of the younger members of the church have said that when he speaks or prays in meeting God's very presence seems there.

Mr Bishop has always been a faithful attendant at the Hancock Co Gorby reunions, and always his sweet prayer is offered before sitting down to the bountiful repast furnished by those splendid Gorby cooks. About 1930 the reunion was held at his home. While age has restricted his efforts, Mr Bishop is hale and hearty for a man nearly 80, due largely to the fact that his life, tempered with the moderation of Christianity, has brought to him the fulfillment of God's promises.
