215 Esther was born at home on Route 80 Otisco, New York. She fondly remembered growing up next door to her 'Aunt Kate' Catherine Schneider. In fact she spent most of her time at Kate's. She attended school in the one room schoolhouse on Route 80, which is now a house next door to the Otisco fire station. She was sick quite often suffering from tonsillitis. Her aunt Kate would give brother Horace a nickel a day to go to the store to buy Esther ice cream to make her throat feel better.
EstherĀ“s father Charles and his brother John Bailer ran the farm together but they were not able to make it a profitable venture. John moved to Great Bend, PA to go to work for the D, L, & W railroad and urged Charles to do likewise. When Esther was in the sixth grade the family did just that, It was while attending Hallstead High School that Esther met her future husband, Leon Sisco. After graduation she moved to Hershey, Pennsylvania and worked in the Hershey Chocolate factory cafeteria. In December 1942, Leon enlisted in the Navy and at this time Esther moved to Endicott, New York and went to work for IBM where she worked on the B-29 bomber. She lived on Roosevelt Avenue in Endicott renting a room from Mrs. Harrington.
Esther and Leon were married at the First Baptist Church In Hallstead, PA in July 1943 while Leon was home on leave. When Leon was discharged from the Navy at the end of World War II, her employment with IBM was terminated as they would not employ married women to provide as many families as possible with at least one source of income. At this time Leon and Esther rented an apartment on Main Street, Hallstead, Pennsylvania. One year later, her first child Yvonne was born. Approximately one year later they moved to Hawley Street in Binghamton, New York. At this time she was working at Sears Roebuck, Inc. on Court Street. While pregnant with their second child, Leon and Esther moved to Chenango Street. When Sandy was born Esther stopped working at Sears. Now with two children, the family needed more room, so they moved to 4 Newton Street on the second floor. Then in 1952, Esther had their third child, Terry. In 1955, Leon and Esther purchased their home at 806 Douglas Drive in Endwell, New York. Harvey's Chicken Farm was located between 553 Hooper Road and 565 Hooper Road, Endwell, NY. It ran west across Patterson Creek and up the hill to Stonefield Road where the parking lot is for the Catholic church. In 1957 Esther went to work a few blocks from their home at Harvey's Chicken farm where she candled and packed eggs. In 1962, she went to work for approximately one year with the General Electric Company in Westover, New York until they lost their government contract. She then went to work again for Sears in the catalog department eventually retiring twenty-four years later from the electronics department. Church life was very important to Esther & Leon. They were very active at the Berean Baptist Church on Farm-to-Market Road, Endwell, NY located directly across from the Maine-Endwell High school. Esther taught childrenĀ“s Sunday school and was a leader in the Pioneer Girls program. Sunday nights after evening church the Sisco home was the place to go for dessert and fellowship.
Once the General Electric government contract ended, Esther was laid off at which time she went back to work for Sears Roebuck & Co. on Chenango Street in the Catalog department. This department was located in a separate building from the main store and was without heat. It was extremely cold working there in the winters. She eventually was transferred to the Electronics department and sold TV's, stereos and other consumer electronics.
Esther and Leon loved to travel and

216 Ethel Mae Banker Sisco was born the third of six children of James Nathaniel and Lila Ann (Hinds) Banker on May 23, 1900 in Hallstead, PA. Both twenty-seven years old at the time. The family rented a home at 213 Fourth Street in Hallstead, PA., within walking distance of the Hallstead train depot where Ethel's father worked as a brakeman for the D, L, & W Railroad.

The 1910 US Federal census shows ten year old Ethel still living at the Fourth Street address. The Banker family were some of the first settlers in the Hallstead area. The family farmstead and cemetery are located at the intersection of SR1022 and Hunzinger Road up DuBois Street, just up the hill from the Fourth Street home of James and Lila.

Like most of her generation, Ethel's education perhaps ended around the sixth grade. Not much is known about her teenage years.

While it is not known when or where she met Olin Sisco, it can be surmised that they either met each other after Olin's family relocated from Nicholson, PA to Hallstead sometime between 1910 and 1917 or, perhaps she began working at the Endicott Shoe Company where her brother was employed before she was seventeen and met Olin there. Seventeen year old Ethel and twenty year old Olin were married on September 1, 1917 at the parsonage of the Grace Baptist church by Rev. H. M. Shepson, a well known evangelist throughout the area. Ethel continued to work at EJ until she and Olin Sisco began their family in 1920.

One year after their wedding, Olin would be called to enlist in the US Army and sent to basic training in Georgia. While Ethel must have missed Olin during this period, his time in the army was shortened and he would never deploy as WWI came to an end five months into his enlistment.

On February 25, 1920, three years after their wedding and at 20 years old Ethel would experience joy as first child Dorotha was born. Life continued to get better and better and by 1923 they purchased a home at 6 Theron Street and in 1923 the twins, Leo and Leon were born.

Unfortunately that joy would begin to turn to sorrow, grief and misery as Leo, born with a spinal defect died nine months after his birth. As was customary in those days, the deceased would be mourned in the home and then taken by the funeral home to the grave site. Dorotha Sisco Thomas remembers sitting in the back seat of the funeral home's large car between her mother and father with Leo's casket sitting across their laps as they were driven the few short blocks to the Floral Park Cemetery in Johnson City, NY.

In 1925, the federal census shows that Olin, Ethel, Dorotha, and Leon lived at 6 Theron Street along with Lorena Banker and Ellsworth Banker, Ethel's sister and brother who were also working at the EJ sho factory at the time. The 1930 census shows that Olin, Ethel, Dorotha and Lillian continued to live at the 6 Theron Street address and that Lorena and Ellsworth had moved out.

By 1940, the family had moved to Hallstead where Ethel's tribulations continued in marriage. It is often said that when you marry, you marry the entire family. This unfortunately was the case for Ethel as her mother-in-law for some reason despised her. Grandson Terry Sisco remembers Ethel as a warm, caring and giving woman who was very devout in her faith in Christ. It is not known when her relationship with Mary Sisco deteriorated but she endured a difficult relationship with her mother-in-law who overtly expressed that she would do all in her power to break up Ethel's marriage to Olin if "it were the last thing I do before I die."

While Dorotha and Leon grew up as model children, Lillian, the Sisco's third child was more of a free spirit. She died at the young age of twenty-three of kidney failure adding to the emotional toll that Ethel had endured her entire married life. It was Ethel's faith in God that sustained her through these tribulations.

Ethel typically wore a "house dress" with an apron over it and black orthopedic high heel shoes. She loved baking. Her baked goods along with canning fruits and vegetables added to the finances of the family. She would take her goods to market in Johnson City, NY along with produce raised on the family farm.

She was a faithful member of the Hallstead Baptist church and was a very devout Christian who intensely loved her family. Her lifelong friend was Bessie Gathany, with whom she spent many hours sewing and conversing. Bessie, her husband Dan along with Olin and Ethel took trips from Hallstead to Indian Rocks Beach, Florida in the days before Interstate highways.

She was a very talented seamstress. Esther Sisco, Ethel's daughter-in-law worked for the Harvey's Chicken farm in the 1950's and would bring collect the empty chicken feed bags that were typically made of flannel. She would give these to Ethel who would make grandson Terry Sisco pajamas from the material. Ethel loved her grandchildren and enjoyed them spending weekends at her house and attending church with her. As a treat she would make "bread, butter and sugar sandwiches.

As a hobby she raised African violets.

217 Ethel Mary Bailer developed a rash that was diagnosed as "Black Erysipelas." The doctor would drive to the Bailer's residence each day to put a salve on Ethel. It was to no avail. The rash spread over the entire body and Ethel eventually succumbed to the disease. Her mother Dora would carry her as she did her housework and chores as Ethel was either in pain or extremely uncomfortable.
Infant Ethel's death was quite traumatic on Dora who went into a state of depression as a result. The doctor suggested that she take in "Fresh Air" children from New York City. It was at this point that they took in a boy during the summer by the name of Kurtz. His sister stayed with Luella (Hobart) Bailer.

218 Eugen Bailer, Pankraz son relates that "Pankraz was a farmer and a bricklayer. He participated in World War I from 1914 - 1918. After his return from the war, he lived at the home of his grandfather. Shortly after his return from the war his father died. In 1920, he built a new house on the abandoned property of the old house. As my parents were married in 1920, the house was not quite finished. The children helped do chores at night. They had to be tough and work hard. My father worked very hard as in addition to his work during the day as a bricklayers, he had a small farm. We had 4 cows, 4 - 5 piece smaller cattle are 2-4 pigs. Our life was marked won renunciation and surrender. Once we were old enough we all helped on the farm. Bailer, Pankraz (I541)
