252 At one time Orville was being "groomed" for the movies. His picture was in a magazine (pre WW II) with a young starlett (Helen Parrish) in a car at a premier. Also, after the war (1947?) he was in the Valley News and Green Sheet when he was on the police force. He retired from the West Valley Division of the LAPD in December, 1968. He later lived in Lonoke Co., Arkansas and had seven grandchildren at the time of his death.

253 At this point we are fairly certain of Simeon’s parentage. Recently there has been a mounting accumulation of evidence. There are several atDNA matches between the descendants of Simeon and various of the other sons of Christopher Bishir Sr. And a Y-DNA test between a descendant of Simeon and descendants of Jonathan and Jeremiah Bishir has come back positive.

Records indicate that he had two children in Pennsylvania in 1847 (Mary Anna) and 1848 (Benjamin Hampton). (According to Gloria Lee Reeves, all of his and Sarah's children, except Jacob, were born in Missouri. Jacob was born in Pennsylvania in 1853.) A Simeon Bishier appears in the Illinois State Census Collection for 3 Jul 1855 in Twp. 5, Bond Co., IL with a family that seems to fit.

According to Diane Varela's grandfather, the Beishiers came from Alsace-Lorraine and were barrel makers. He also told her that they came down through Canada because of religious persecution.

A Simeon Bisher appears in the 1840 Cinncinnati directory as a butcher, r Ss Elizabeth b Western Row & John. According to the 1880 census, Simeon’s parents were both born in Pennsylvania. The family was living in St. Louis, Missouri in 1850, 1860, 1870, and 1880.

Simeon Beishier’s marriage record to Margaret Stevens (nee Wilkerson) in 1879 gives his parents as Christopher Beisheir and Hanora Laman. (We have reason to believe Christopher Bishir’s wife was named Hannah, based on 1798 court records in Mongahan Twp., York Co., Pennsylvania.)

Simeon first appears in the 1840 Cincinnati city directory, 4 years after a Hannah Bisher was listed as living there.

RESEARCH: His burial records give 29 May 1882 however it’s not clear if this is the death date or the burial date.

His birthplace is listed as Pennsylvania on his son, Jacob’s death certificate.

DNA Analysis

Y-DNA analysis:

Thor Bisher, a descendant of Jonathan Bishir, and Rob Bishir, a descendant of Jeremiah Bishir, have tested Y-DNA 43 markers (at and match with a genetic distance of 2. Mike Beishir, a descendant of Simeon Beishir, has a Y-DNA 37 match (genetic distance 4) to Thor Bisher. This would prove that there is a paternal genetic connection between these three branches of the Bishir family.

Autosomal DNA analysis:

There is a DNA circle for Christopher Bishir Sr on that contains:

sherricow - descendant of Jacob Bishir
bkime421 - descendant of Jacob Bishir
rdhook1 - descendant of Jeremiah Bishir
B.W. (Bill Whirl) - descendant of Jacob Bishir
Carley Worth - descendant of Jonathan Bishir
JoanBe - descendant of Jeremiah Bishir
LGilmore - descendant of John Bishir
Kathleen Beishir Signiago - descendant of Simeon Bishir

Other Bishir descendants not yet in the circle (probably because of the lack of a public tree on Ancestry or differences in spelling or dates):

Diane Varela - descendant of Simeon Bishir
55Koi - descendant of Simeon Bishir
Martha Ninneman - descendant of Maj. Christopher Bishir, Jr.

Kathleen has a match to sherricow and to LGilmore. LGilmore matches Carley also. LGilmore and Kathleen both match 55Koi. Kathleen matches a cousin, Diane Varela, who shares a match with Kathleen and Carley named JoanBe.

This “web” of Bishir matches would seem to greatly strengthen the case that Simeon is the youngest son of Christopher Bishir Sr. and that his wife was Hannorah Laman.

Native Dayton Radio Player Has Future
by Mildred Mason

Were television here there should be no question in anyone's mind as to the radio future of Jane Bishir, 19-year-old platinum blonde, native of Dayton, O., and the most recent addition to WLWs dramatic staff. Jane graduated from Steele High School in 1932 and spent the past winter in Miami, Fla., where she made her debut in radio drama and as a continuity writer. Following her return to Dayton this spring she organized the Tower Players— a semi-professional dramatic stock company and now, at WLW, she is launching upon her all consuming ambition for a dramatic career before the microphone.
