This is the family of my great-great-grandfather, William T. Sisson, and his second wife, Margaret Jane Lambert. Margaret Jane must have died some time between February 1874, when her youngest children Amanda Ella and Mary Emma were born, and October 1875, which is when William Sisson married his third wife, Susan Caroline Tant. It may be that she died shortly after the twins' birth.

I would like to know the fates of sons Samuel, William and John. William (“Billy”) is shown on the 1880 census with the Joseph M. Norman family; William’s half-sister Sarah Jane would marry Joseph Norman’s son William Henry. I have found a couple of candidates who might be John Sisson but cannot confirm that they are the right man.

Jessie Daniel Sisson moved to Texas some time in the 1890s, as did William Henry and Sarah Jane Sisson Norman. The other members of this Sisson family seem to have remained in Alabama.

I would love to share information with anyone related to/researching this family; you can use the “Contact” button on the left side of this blog to get in touch with me.
