If David and Annie Sisk died in Harrisburg IL
chances are that the local news paper is going to
have an obit on them. Failing that, call some of
the funeral homes in town and ask them to check their
records. (they keep stuff like this)
If grandma Jessie went to school in Harrisburg and graduated
in the 20's... shes going to be listed on the 1910 and 20 census
as a child in Davids??? household? Her age will be listed, along
with any siblings they have... it should also tell you where (at least what state)
she was born in. If its KY... then write the vital statistics office
and request a copy of her birth certificate.
You can also check the 1880 census for Hopkins Co. KY
for David as a child in someones household.. if you find him
(and from what youve indicated so far you probably will) it will
give his parents names as well as his sibs... After that..
it gets a good deal easier... Ive got a good bit of info
about Sisks in Hopkins Co. (the husband is from there.....
btw.. there arent any mountains in Madisonville... hills yes!... and PLENTY of
strip mines!) and Ill be happy to share what I have.
Let me hear from you
