Peter and Rene',
I promised some time back to see if I could clear up the misunderstanding about my grandfather Tom Bishop being the father of Dollie Abbas (My grandmother Katie Abbas Bishops oldest child).
Here is what my sister sent me from her files.
Aunt Dollie's granddaughter, our cousin Johanna's daughter, is working on the Abbas side with Aunt Dollie's help and promises to send me any information. I have Linda Petersen's e-mail and she told me to e-mail her and she would copy it and give it to Aunt Dollie who she sees at least once a week. Aunt Dollie is in a nursing home in Titonka and has had eye surgery recently and now can see to read and crochet . She will be 92 in April on the 27th. Aunt Dollie wrote me and told me about her father, Tom Miller, and how he died before Grandma (Katie Abbas) could marry him (he was an Indian and people looked down on Indians in those days) and of course we know Katie Abbas later married Tom Bishop, our grandfather. Greatgrandma & Greatgrandpa Abbas "adopted" Aunt Dollie and raised her.
