Camp Bishop Creek
by Justin Ruhge
A temporary post, it was
established sometime in 1863 near present Bishop, Inyo County.
It was probably named for Samuel A. Bishop, a well known rancher
who came to California in 1849, served as an officer in the Mariposa
Battalion in 1851,
and resided in Owen's Valley from 1860 to 1863.
