References, Sources, and other notes:
Burial information from Pruett1, who has him only as "Bishops" of the 2nd Florida. His full name and company are an educated guess: there are only two Bishops found in the rolls of the 2nd Florida, and the other, James E. of Company H, survived at least until 1905. John T. of Company L has no details beyond 1862.
