1. Mrs. Grace E. Jared, "They Met Challeges ... With Memoirs" (Ann Arbor, MI: Grace E. Heminger Jared, 1968), pp. 70, 71:
"The children of Francis Marion Upshaw and Juliet Buchanan Reed were:
C - William Loomis (named for husband of his sister Narcissa) born 1857, died July 23, 1928; married Ora Estelle Bishop, b Aug. 18, 1859; d Jan. 21, 1925, Portland, Oregon. William Loomis Upshaw, who married Ora Estelle Bishop was a preacher, a Circuit Rider preacher and lived many years in the Cherokee Strip of Oklahoma. He, like his father, was a colorful figure but no record seems left of his life's history.
William and Ora had four sons and two daughters, one son and one daughter dying shortly after birth.
Their descendants were:
a) Gilbert Warren, b. Sept. 30, 1879, Abilene, Kansas, d. 1953, no issue.
b) Francis Benjamin, b. Dec. 19, 1898(sic), Abilene, d. Oct. 8, 1954, no issue.
c) Walter Edward, b. Dec. 19, 1890, Hutchinson, Kansas. Walter was the manager of the Portland office of the Dept. of Agriculture for many years. On Sept. 1, 1915, he married Edah Helen Lenz, b. Aug. 23, 1892, at Portland, Ore., daughter of John Lenz and Elizabeth Maeder. They had three daughters, Edah Helen, b. July 8, 1916, Portland, Ore.; Mary Jane, b. Jan. 18, 1920, Portland, Ore.; Ora Estelle, b. Jan. 18, 1925, McMinnville, Oregon.
d) James Harvey, b. Jan. 12, 1894, in prob. Okla., d. June 22, 1894.
e) Vesta Vilma, b. Nov. 6, 1895, d. Nov. 11, 1896.
All three of William Loomis Upshaw's sons served in important government positions, as well as military officers, and all were successful business men." (note: although Mrs. Jared states "William and Ora had four sons and two daughters", she only lists five children).
