    Hi, I am a descendant of the Bishop and Cunningham family. I recently learned tgat Sarah Wildes Bishop was my gg grandmother’s step mother. We descend from Caroline, her sister, whom Joseph married after her death. Edward and Sarah were jailed but fled from Salem and settled in Rehoboth. It was their daughter(?) who was hung on April 21st, 1692.
    My great grandmother’s name was Sarah Aborn Cunningham. I named my daughter after her. We should connect!

    William Wade Cunningham who married Mary McConnell are our descendants —before them we haven’t researched yet.
    Bishop and Cunningham families joined and came to US from County Antrim Ireland (1800’s?)
