Membership in Mayflower Society or NSDAR|
Has anyone in your group completed membership for the Mayflower Society or NSDAR through the ancestors of Joseph Bisbee and Zebiah Cook? I am descended from them and have 11 blood relatives that were on the Mayflower, as do many of the Bisbees descended from this line. I was starting to put together an application and hoped someone else had already done it, at least up to Joseph Bisbee.
Looking for Robert Riley Bisbee|
I have recently received information that my adopted grandfather's birth name was Robert Riley Bisbee. He was adopted in March 1914, in Lincoln, Nebraska by John Madison Kisner and Clara Belle Kisner. He was raised in Minnesota, and spent most of his adult life in Waterloo area of Iowa. He was born in November 1911, I don't have his parent's names or his birthplace. He was under the control of the Board of Control for Dependent Children at the time of his adoption. If anyone has any information that could shed a light on his lineage, we would be most grateful. Thank you! Lisa Kisner Osslund firstname.lastname@example.org

Dr. Walter Frank Bisbee, Camden, Maine|
From Jill Morton of Rockport, Maine, 2012.
"I am not related to Walter, but I have been researching him and his family for some time now. He and his family lived in our community and donated to our town and schools very generously. One of the things he left behind in his will was a trust fund to our local school that has been very wisely managed and continues to benefit our school tremendously even now, 75 years after his death. I have been on a mission to research him for the purpose of having the school add a tribute/memorial of him in the school to show the appreciation for the wonderful gift he left us. I work for the school, and find it sad/disappointing that people do not know the origin of "The Bisbee Fund" and I would like to change that.
"I have gathered quite a bit of info about Walter, but would welcome any info you could provide to me. I am especially interested in finding a photo of him....if you know of any resources where I could check for this I would greatly appreciate it."
If you have photos of Dr. Bisbee, or additional information about him, Please contact us at the Bisbee Family Connection Website, and we will put you in contact with Ms. Morton.
