401 Mary (McVicker) Youngs was born in Pond Eddy, New York. In 1915, when Mary was nine months old, the family moved to Irvington, New York. They moved into an apartment at 29 Main Street, Irvington and it was there, at four (4) years of age she met life long friend Alice Kady.

When Mary was two years of age her brother Lee, set the apartment on fire. Mary's mother Edith, had put the children to bed for their afternoon nap. Edith's parents, Estelle and Charles Holden, were moving from Pond Eddy to Irvington into the same apartment building one floor below. Edith had gone down to their apartment to help her put their beds together. The neighbor across the hall from Edith's apartment smelled smoke coming from their apartment. She ran downstairs to get Edith. They ran up to the apartment to find that Lee had locked the door. The children were saved but Lee was severely burned.

Mary's mother relates that when Mary was two and a half, sitting in her highchair when she was impressed with the beautiful sun and birds out the window. This is one of Mary's earliest recollections and her whole life she enjoyed birds, especially cardinals.

The family then moved to 103 Station Road in Irvington which was right next to a railroad viaduct that was to become a fun play place for Mary and the children.

Mary went to elementary school in Irvington and in the sixth grade the family moved to Endicott, New York arriving on the Fourth of July, 1925. Since it was summer, it was not a good time to meet children. Mary's mother therefore thought that it would be a good idea to take the children to Mary Ellen Redmond's (great grandmother) farm to stay. Mary entered Henry B. Endicott Middle School on Jackson Avenue, the year that it opened. She attended this school for one year when the family purchased there home on "Round Top" in Union, New York. The address was 4 Otis Avenue which has since been renamed Pinecrest Road. She attended Union-Endicott High School. She didn't finish high school as she was married in February of her senior year.

Luella Young had just moved back to Union, New York from Lake Placid. Her homeroom teacher introduced her to Mary and asked her to introduce her to the kids in school. When Luella found that Lee McVicker was Mary'sbrother she was most interested to meet him. She made a deal with Mary that if she would introduce her to Lee, Luella would introduce Mary to her uncle Lester. Mary agreed even though she was dating Arthur Rhinehart. Mary and Lester went to the movies on their blind date. No one had money for the movies except Lee McVicker,so he ended up paying for everyone's ticket even Lester's. After some time, Mary and Art broke up which was about the same time that Lester was breaking up with his girlfriend Katie Gunderman. Lester called Mary to see if he could meet her after she got of work at J.J. Newberry Five and Dime on Washington, Avenue, Endicott, New York. When she came out of the store, Lester was so dressed so well that she didn't recognize him. Approximately one year later he asked her to marry him.

During February 1934, while Mary and Lester were living in an apartment on Adams Avenue, Lester developed pneumonia and was hospitalized for three weeks. They could no longer afford to keep their apartment so they moved in with Mary's parents. Eighteen months after their wedding, Mary learned that she was pregnant withMarylyn.

After Marylyn was born, Mary and Lester moved into an apartment on High Street in Union, New York. After a year in this apartment Lester's father became very ill and in April 1935, they moved into Lester's parent's house on Mulberry Street in Binghamton taking over the payments so that his parent's would not loose the house. His parent's moved into an efficiency apartment on the second floor. Lester's father Jesse, died in 1936 at which time the house was sold to settle Jesse's estate.

After the house was sold, Mary and Lester moved briefly to Brinks Street in Endwell and then to Loder Avenue,Union, New York. Since there was no estate money leftover for Cora, she moved in with Mary and Lester and continued to live with them for twenty-six years. A short time later they bought their first home at 208 Beckwith Avenue in Endwell, New York.

When Marylyn was seven years old, Mary started the first Brownie Girl Scout troop in Endwell. The troop met in the basement of Mary's house and was made up of seven girls who were the daughters of Mary's friends. She taught them embroidery, took them to the local radio station and other entertaining programs. When the girls turned ten the girls became Girl Scouts and met in the Endwell Fire Station.

Mary was active at the Endwell United Methodist church where she was the wedding consultant, on the finance and nominating committee. She also enjoyed playing bridge.

In 1944, there was an epidemic of polio that took many lives. It was such a devasting disease that when thedisease was diagnosed it was like receiving a death sentence as there was no cure and little hope of survival. In August of 1944, Mary and Lester had taken a cruise on Lake Ontario from Rochester, New York. While on the cruise, Mary became sea sick and drank some of the water on board. Two days after the cruise she was dizzy and had black-outs. Doctors diagnosed Mary with Bulbar polio, the most devastating type of polio. During this time her left eye went down behind her nose and the right side of her body became paralyzed. Mary was fortunate because the disease missed the center of her brain and this saved her life. She was rehabilitation for over a year. Mary's mother took time off of work to care for Marylyn.

In 1950, with Marylyn in high school, Mary began to reflect that her purpose in life was shortly to end. She decided that it was time for another child if it were possible. Because doctor's advised Mary of the dangers of complications due to problems with Marylyn's delivery, Mary was advised against having a second child. She consulted with specialists and she decided to take the chance and have the second child much to her mother's chagrin. In fact she didn't tell her mother until her mother commented that she was gaining weight. Mary was already six months pregnant. Lucinda Ann Youngs was born February 5, 1951.

Mary devoted her time to raising Cindy and volunteering to dospeech therapy for mentally retarded children. When Cindy was a senior in high school Mary decided that shewanted to go to work. She shopped at the Fashion Studio for Cindy's special dresses. While there one day the owner advised Mary that she was going to open the second floor as a bridal salon. She knew that Mary did the wedding receptions at church and so she began asking Mary etiquette questions. She then asked Mary to go to work at the store. Cindy's wedding was the last wedding that Mary coordinated.

Lester retired in 1972 and Mary and Lester moved to Gulf Harbors, New Port Richey, Florida in 1973. They built a home at 42 Bowline Bend and remained there five and one-half years until Lester grew leary of the threats of hurricanes. They then built their home at 10518 Green Meadow Lane, Timber Oaks subdivision, Port Richey, Florida. During this time Mary worked at the Beall's department store until September 1986. It was then that Lester had his first stroke. Mary devoted her days working to rehabilitate Lester who suffered from paralysis and speech.

After Lester passed away, Mary began volunteering at the Fox Hollow Elementary School teaching reading two to three days per week. Mary reports that when she and her mother went to sign her father's death certificate, Edith McVicker signed that John's parents were William and Ann McVicker. She adds that Maggie McVicker worked to bring first John to the US, then James (Jimmie) McVicker whose father she did not know. She brought Betty McGary whose was from Scotland. Betty's mother was Maggie's sister who had married a McGary. She then brought over Jean McVicker, Bill McVicker and James McVicker who were the children of Thomas McVicker.

406 Mary married Dix R Hobart in 1882 according to the 1900 US Fderal Census. In 1900 the Hobart's had nine children living with them. At some point between 1900 and 1910,she seperated and divorced Dix. According to family lore, fearing for her children's safety, Mary (Tuffley) Hobart, then in her late-thirties devised a plan to remove herself and nine children ranging in age from age seventeen to five months old at the time of the 1900 census from the intolerable circumstances of abuse. She spent days furtively packing the children's belongings and hiding them under their beds. Then, in the middle of one night she must have been both dreading and dreaming of for weeks, she snuck out of the house and into the barn to hitch the wagon to the horse. One can only imagine the fear awaking Dix with sounds eminating from the process. She then returned to the house and awoke the children begging their silence. She quietly spirited them out of the house back to the barn each carrying their own belongings. is difficult to comprehend the level of fear as she slowly pushed the barn door open to the creaking, screetching groaning sounds that used to be so familiar to this agrarian generation. One wonders, did she move the buggy slowly out of the barn or did she take of like a bolt? At what point in the journey from the hell of home to the security of her father's house did she feel that sense relief and release? Did her mother and father know of her plan and help her plan or were they stunned to see Mary and the children?

In 1910 Mary is shown living with her four youngest children with her father Henry Tuffley and her brother Edward.

She was the first person to give birth in the Colonies (a stillborn born upon the Mayflower as it was docked in the harbor). It is said that in the painting by Henry Sargent (1770-1885) entitled "Landing of the Pilgrims", Mary Norris Allerton is represented as having a fine face, rather beautiful, and as being of a "meek and quiet spirit". The painting was painted in 1818-1822 and is on permanent display at Pilgrim Hall Museum; Plymouth, MA.COLE HILL MONUMENT:Scene of the secret night burials of those who died during the settlement's first bitter winter.

422 MOSES MAVERICK(1611-1685/6) - Awliscombe, Devonshire, England; Dorchester, Suffolk co., MA; Salem, Essex co., MA & Marblehead, Essex co., MA(Fourth Generation - Maverick Family)FATHERMOTHERJOHN MAVERICKMARY GYE
BIRTH & BAPTISM Moses was born in March-June 1611 in England[15]. His birth date is based on Essex county, MA court depositions (see below) and died in Marblehead, Essex co., MA on 28 January 1685/6; he was 74[15,88]. Moses was baptized in South Huish, Devonshire, England on 3 November 1611 as "Mosses, son of John Mavericke"[16,86]. DEATH His death record reads in part: "...who solemnized the preceding marriages and being Clerke registered ye births & deaths preceding..." and gives his age as 76. PROOF OF AGE The Marblehead, Essex co., MA VRs supplement have six entries for Moses (under Maverick and Mavericke) for depositions. These were "...obtained from court depositions, wills and inventories of estates in the Essex county Court files...""Maverick, Moses, a. 50 y., dep. Sep., 1662."[89,90]"Mavericke, Moses, a. abt. 54 y., dep. Nov. 1665."[90,91]"Mavericke, Moses, a. abt. 55 y., dep. Mar., 1667."[90,92]"Mavericke, Moses, a. 57 y., dep. June T. [sic], 1668."[90,93]"Mavericke, Moses, a. 57 y., dep. Mar. T. [sic], 1669."[90,94]"Mavericke, Moses, a. abt. 58 y., dep. June T. [sic], 1669."[90,95] MIGRATION Moses emigrated to New England at age 19 along with his family aboard the Mary & John in 1630. He OCCUPATION He became a proprietor in Dorchester, Suffolk co., MA in 1633, and continued that profession in Marblehead, Essex co., MA in 1637. When he lived in Salem, Essex co., MA in 1634, he was a Fisherman. CITIZENSHIP Moses took the Oath of Freeman on 3 September 1634 in either Dorchester, Suffolk co., MA or Salem, Essex co., MA, depending upon the source. Salem is more likely, since he was a resident of Salem at that time[60,62,96]. CHURCH AFFILIATION He became a member of the Church (most likely in Salem or Marblehead, Essex co., MA) on 12 June 1637. RESIDENCE & REAL ESTATE He owned property in Dorchester, Suffolk co., MA in 1633, which he sold to John Greenway that year[64]. He then moved to Salem, Essex co., MA in 1634 and finally settled in Marblehead, Essex co., MA (where he took over his father-in-law Isaac Allerton's holdings) in 1635[100,102]. He paid the rent for Noddles Island [now East Boston], Suffolk co., MA to the Massachusetts General Court in 1636, having charge of it while his brother Samuel was in Virginia[101].

On 6 March 1666/6, Moses & his second wife Eunice sold her real estate holdings in Boston, Suffolk co., MA:"...Moses Maverick, of Marblehead, with wife Eunice deeds to Henry Tailor house & land; St. E., house and land of Thomas Bumstead, and land of Theo. Atkinson S., land late of John Briggs, deceased., W., thomas Buttel N., which house did belong to Thomas Roberts, [first] husband of sd Eunice, late of Boston, and her children, Timothy, Elizabeth, Lydia, and Eunice Roberts...Washington St., N. of Court St..."[102]
TOWN SERVICE & LEGAL MENTION Moses Maverick was a trusted member of Marblehead, Essex co., MA society. He served the town in many, many offices & functions. His first office was that of Marblehead's Constable in 1643[103]. On 13d:3m(May):1646, Moses, John Hart & William Charles witnessed the will of George Pollard of Marblehead[104,105]. Moses and "Johanne Bartoll" took inventory on the estate of John Hart of Marblehead on 14d:1m(March):1655/6[106,107].

The pace of his town service picked up considerably in the 1660s. Moses & Francis Johnson took inventory on the estate of Erosmus James of Marblehead in 1660[108,109]. Moses, William Nicke and John Legg took inventory on the estate of Edmund Nicholson of Marblehead on 22d:9m:1660[115,116].

This group also took inventory of the estate of Roger Tucker on Salem on 25 June 1661[110,111] and inventory on the estate of James Smith of Marblehead on 25 June 1661[112,113]. Finally, this trio took inventory on the estate of Mrs. Mary Smith of Marblehead on 13 April 1663[114].

On 25 March 1662, there appear a series of entries for people who had been " God's providence cast away and no will appearing..."[117] in the Essex county Probate records. John Pomary, Isssack Waklye and Henry Muddle were lost in the sinking of one boat[118]. James Mudge, Aniball Lane and William Homan were lost when another boat went down[118]. John Lookeman, Nicolas Lookman, John Hart and Richard Holeman were also lost when their boat sank. Administration of these last four estates was granted to Mr. Geroge Corwin and Mr. Moses Maverick[118,119]. Other people lost together were Sifforye Cock, John Anard and Tobiah Beckes[118,120]. It seems apparent that all these deaths came about from a rather intense ocean storm which swamped and sank all these fishing boats, taking all hands to their deaths. Interestingly, Sidney Perley makes no mention of a 1662 severe storm in his book on the subject of New England storms.

On 16 November 1664, Moses Maverick and William Charles took inventory on the estate of John Bartoll of Marblehead[121,122]. "Mr. Moses Maverick" was granted administration of the estate of William Rayner (of Marblehead?) on 26d:4m:1666[123,124]. Moses, George Corwin and Samuell Ward took inventory of the estate of Arthur Sandie of Marblehead on 8 April 1667[125,126]. He and Erasomus James took inventory on the estate of Thomas Randall of Marblehead on 20 November 1667[127,128]. "Mr. Moses Maverick and Samuell Ward were granted administration on the estate of Henry Dab (of Marblehead?), intestate on 31 March 1668[129,130]. They were also granted administration on the estate of John Bird (of Marblehead?), intestate on 31 March 1668[130,131], and also on the estate of Richard Jane (of Marblehead?), intestate on 31 March 1668[130,132].

The estate of Thomas Dill of Marblehead owed him 'c2'a32 in the inventory of 2 July 1668[133,134]. That of William Walton of Marblehead owed him 'c2'a373 1s. 4d. in the inventory of 23 November 1668[135,136]. Moses & Samuell Ward apprised for "Samuel Waltown" (as part of the estate settlement) "a parcel of land at Marblehead, called William' lot at 'c2'a310, and the parcel on which his house stands at 'c2'a38[137,138]."

He, John Peach and Christopher Latamor took inventory of the estate of Mrs. Jane James of Marblehead[137,139]. Henry Bartholmew, Moses & Hillyard Veren took inventory of the estate of Henry Coombes of Marblehead on 16 September 1669[140,141]. "Mr. Moses Mavericke" owed 'c2'a39 18s. to the estate of Mr. John Croad of Salem on 29d:9m(November):1670[142,143] "Moses Mavericke and Samll. Ward" too inventory of the estate of Timothy Owen of Marblehead, intestate on 28 November 1671[144,145]. Moses, John Deverix and Samuel Ward took inventory of the estate of John Stacy of Marblehead, intestate on 28 February 1671[147,148].

"Administration on the estate of Samuell Leech, intestate, granted 24d:4m(June):1673, to several of the creditors, viz, Mr. Moses Maverick, Mr. Francis Johnson and Robert Knights, who were to bring in an inventory to the next Salem court." Administration had first been granted to the widow, Hannah, on 26d:9m(November):1672, but apparently was never done by her[149,150].

Later, Moses is mentioned in several interesting wills:He is mentioned in Adam Hawkes' will as the father of "Rebeckah Hauks" wife of "John Hauks" who were the parents of "Moses Hauks". Once again, he is referred to as "Mr. Moses Mavericke". Moses also signed the inventory along with "Sarah Hauks, Francis Hutchinson...John Hauks, William Cogswell"[146].

In that of William Charles of Marblehead, dated 31 December 1672, "taking the advice of my loving Freinds therein, Mr. Moses Maverick, Mr. Samuell Cheever and Rich[ar]d Norman" he gave "liberty" to his wife "to sell, dispose or alionate any part of the estate for her needfull maintenance" after his death. He also left his "Cousin Robert Charles" a single shilling[151,152]. On 20 November 1695, James Dennis, the sole surviving executor of the Charles estate was called upon to give an accounting of this estate and notes that the estate paid 'c2'a31 12s. 7d to "Mr. Moses Mavrick as by his account"[153].

Finally, he was involved in the estate of Josiah Walton [or Walthom] (of Marblehead?) who "was brought in ... from the Sea after his wound by lightning, on June 23, 1673". Moses, Samuel Cheever and James Dennis were called and present when Walton dictated his last will and testament and signed the state of such. The estate was proved on 27d:9m(November):1673 by Moses Maverick and James Dennis and Eliza Walton, the widow[154,155].

"Mr. Moses Maverick" was owed 5s. 9d. by the estate of John Trebie on 24 November 1675[156,157]. Moses & Samuel Cheever took inventory on 16 February 1676 on the estate of John Cole of Marblehead "sometime of Pemaquid"[158]. Moses & Samuel Ward took inventory on the estate of widow Mrs. Sarah Charles on 21 December 1676[159,160].
ESTATE Moses' will was dated January 1685/6, but was not signed by him. It was presented on 30 March 1686 but not accepted by the court as some of the children objected. Named in the will were: his second wife Eunice; Moses Hawks -- only surviving child of his daughter Rebecca; the four children of his deceased daughter Abigail, namely, Samuel Ward, Abigail Hinds, Mary Dallabar and Martha Ward; his other daughters Elizabeth Skinner, Remember Woodman, Mary Fferguson [sic] and Sarah Norman; and his son-in-law, Archebald Ffurgeson [sic].

On 29 September 1691, Edward Woodman, Sr. of Boston -- who was the husband of his daughter Remember Maverick -- petitioned on behalf of the seven Woodman children that "Unice" be ordered to give an account of her administration of Moses Maverick's estate.

On 29 November 1698, the estate was finally administered. It was divided among the widow Eunice Maverick; Archebald Ffurgeson in behalf of his children by his deceased wife Mary Maverick Ffurgeson; John Norman, husband to Moses' only surviving daughter Sarah; grandson Moses Hawks, who was the only child of Moses' eldest daughter Rebecca, now deceased on behalf of himself and of William Hughes and Thomas Jackson. William Hughes was married to Elizabeth Grafton and Thomas Jackson was married to Priscilla Grafton. The girls were the children of Elizabeth Maverick Grafton, deceased. The estate was also divided between Samuel Ward in behalf of himself and his two sisters living and the children of his third and fourth sisters -- both deceased -- descending from the now-deceased Abigail Maverick Ward and Thomas Perkins, who was the second husband to the now deceased Remember Maverick Woodman, in behalf of himself and all the children of Remember[97,98]. All of these papers and others are published in full in the Mayflower Descendant[99].
MARRIAGE #1 Before 6 May 1635 when Moses was 24, he first married Remember ALLERTON, daughter of Isaac ALLERTON & Mary NORRIS, in Plymouth, Plymouth co., MA or Salem or Marblehead, Essex co., MA[161,162,163,164,165,166,167,168,169,170,42,171,172,173,174,175,176,177,178]. We know that they were married by 6 May 1635 because this is the date at which Moses is first referred to as the son-in-law of Isaac Allerton in the Massachusetts Bay Colony Records. CHILDREN 51 . i.

Moses moves to Marblehead, Essex Co., MA to join his soon-to-be father-in-law, Isaac Allerton. He is considered the Father of Marblehead. Allerton, assistant governor of the colony, had his share of difficulties, ending with expulsion. Allerton's troubles followed him to Marblehead and he was asked to leave the Massachusetts Colony, ending his life in New Haven, Connecticut. Allerton transferred ownership of all of his property to Moses, who remains in Marblehead. Four years later, the records indicate that Maverick is permitted to operate a tavern on a year-to-year basis. This clearly complements his business of selling provisions to his fishermen.

438 Olin Reece Sisco was born on Friday, March 26, 1897 in Nicholson Township, Pennsylvania to Frances "Luther" and "Mary" Mercy (Phillips) Sisco. By April 15, 1910, at the age of thirteen Olin and his family were living in Factoryville, Pennsylvania on Capwell Hill Road. His father worked as a laborer and bridge builder for the Steam Railroad Company. By 1920, the US Federal census shows Luther and Mary living on Silk Mill Road Hallstead, PA. It is unknown when between 1910 and 1920 they relocated from Factoryville to Hallstead nor whether Olin had ever lived at the Silk Mill Road residence. The only indication that he may have lived in Hallstead is the family lore has it that Olin had to walked the family cow from Factoryville to Hallstead a distance of about thirty-one miles.

Sometime around 1915, Olin must have heard about job availability at the Endicott-Johnson Shoe Company (aka EJ) and began working at one of the Johnson City, NY factories. There is a photo of Olin working at EJ as a teenager with Ellsworth Banker, Olin's future brother-in-law who was also from Hallstead. It is not known how or where Olin Reece Sisco and Ethel Mae Banker met. It may have been in Hallstead which is where Ethel lived or at the Endicott Johnson Shoe Company where they both worked. They were married on September 1, 1917 in Binghamton, NY at the parsonage of the Grace Baptist church. Ethel continued to work for the Endicott- Johnson Shoe Company until she and Olin began their family.

On June 5, 1918, after one short year of marriage, Olin registered for the World War I draft as required by law and joined the US Army. His draft registration card indicates that he and Ethel lived at 28 Carhart Street in Johnson City, NY. It was there that they became friends with Eunice and Tom Watkins who lived in the apartment above them. They always joked that they could hear each others conversations through the bathroom walls. Eunice and Tom must have been good friends and neighbors taking care of Ethel while Olin went off to basic training. Olin never deployed as the war came to an end on November 11, 1918 now forever known as "Armistice Day."

At some point between 1918 and 1920, Olin and Ethel moved a few short blocks over to 90 Endicott Road in the Village of Johnson City, Town of Union, NY. It was while living there that on February 25, 1920 that first daughter Dorotha Sisco Thomas was born. Three years later, Ethel delivered twins Leon Arthur and Leo Howard. Leo was born with a spinal defect. In a photo taken of the two infants, it was necessary to wire Leo's neck and head upright as he was unable to do so on his own. Leo died nine months after he was born which must have had an emotional toll on both Olin and Ethel. Dorotha remembers that the undertaker had a big car and she sat between her mtoether and father with baby Leo's casket lying across their lap as they drove to the Floral Park Cemetery to bury the baby.

Sometime around 1923, perhaps just prior to the birth of Leo and Leon, Olin and Ethel had purchased a home at 6 Theron Street, Johnson City, New York, near what is currently the Riverside Drive traffic circle. The Endicott-Johnson Shoe Company provided employees with many benefits unknown in today's economy. Homes were built and sold at cost. Playgrounds, recreation halls for bowling, roller skating and dancing were provided. Hospitals and a medical plan which received world-wide attention and acclaim were established. An eight-hour day, one of the first in a large industry, and other benefits were inaugurated. They even provided each employee's child with their first shoes and each Christmas each year thereafter. The home on Theron Street was one of the Endicott Johnson built homes which Olin purchased for $3,000.00.

The period from 1930 to the mid-1940's was the period of Great Depression in the United States. It was during this time of struggling economy that Olin's parents, Luther and Mary Sisco, were having difficulty maintaining and affording the small farm that they had in Hallstead, PA from the income generated from the crops grown in their fields. To help keep the farm, Olin moved his family in with his parents. They waited until June to move the family allowing Dorotha and Leon to finish the school year in Johnson City.

Relations became strained between Olin and Ethel and Olins parents. Olin's mother despised Ethel and had threatened to do all that she could to sabotage the marriage. Olin gave his mother the choice of staying in their current home or moving into the former Severson's home. Mary chose the latter. Eventually, Olin purchased the family farm from his father and also purchased the home on the road above them from the Severson's for his parents to move into as shown in the 1940 federal census. He added more property to the farm from tax sales and in time had a large farm along Route 7 (Church Street) on the road that leads from Conklin, New York to Hallstead, Pennsylvania. The first piece of property that he purchased was along the main road and the creek. Olin's dream was for both he and his son Leon, to run the farm together. Olin must have rented the Theron Street residence out as Real Estate records show that he sold it on October 19th, 1942.

Ethel would bake and can fruits and vegetables from their gardens, taking them to Johnson City to sell for extra income. The basement of the farmhouse was simply dirt floors with stones collected from the fields and creek beds stacked on top of each to provide some insulation from the dirt walls. Wood shelves were built along the walls to provide storage for canned goods and vegetables for the winter. The cool, dark and damp basements provided excellent storage for winter vegetables. Leon and Dorotha had to do the house and farm chores while Olin sold insurance.

Olin was very stern and possessed a good business sense. In 1922, to provide the family with additional income Olin joined the Prudential Life Insurance Company and was a sales agent throughout the Binghamton, NY and Susquehanna, County, Pennsylvania area.

He was well respected throughout the area for his business acumen and insights. Many people turned to him for advice on business matters. He retired from Prudential after his first heart attack. Olin was fiercely protective of his family making certain that everyone was provided for. Between January 1918 and December 1920 the world suffered from a major flu epidemic called the "Spanish Flu" that killed between 50 to 100 million people one of which was Olin's twenty-one year old sister Clara Almira who died on March 1, 1920, She left behind a husband, George Lynn Jamison and two children, four year old Lloyd and two year old Luther.

After Clara's death, Lynn abandoned the boys. His WWII Draft registration in 1942 shows him living at 60 Hamilton Street New Haven, CT. Luther was sent to live his paternal grandparents believed to be in New Haven also and Lloyd was sent to live with his maternal grandparents Mary and Luther Sisco in Hallstead, PA. Luther ended up in a children's home in Connecticut. At that time a children's home was viewed almost like a juvenile detention center as opposed to an orphanage. Olin went to Connecticut and got him out. Unfortunately, Luther became a liability. He began to drink heavily. One day Lloyd got a call from the local Hallstead theater that Luther was there drunk and causing a disturbance. Lloyd went to get him but instead of taking him to Luther and Marys, he took him to Olins house. In the process of attempting to get him under control Olin slapped Luther in the house to get him to pay attention. Luther then attempted to punch Olin but missed putting his fist through the wall in the back room that served as Olin's office. Rather than repair the wall, Ethel simply hung a picture over the hole.

On another occasion, Luther went to the Swift's slaughter house that was located across SR 1033 behind what is now the American Legion building. Olin had warned him not to go there because some of the animals to be slaughtered had diseases. Luther brought back pig cholera to Olin's pigs that he was growing for market.

While living in Johnson City in their early married life, Olin and Ethel attended the First Baptist Church, Johnson City, New York. He served the church by teaching as a Sunday school class. The family later attended the Primitive Methodist Church in Johnson City. Sometime after he joined Prudential, he got away from the church until many years later after he suffered a heart attack. At that point he became active at the First Baptist Church, Hallstead PA eventually becoming a deacon. He would travel throughout the Southern Tier of New York and northeastern Pennsylvania to hear preachers. He purchased a portable reel to reel tape recorder to record their messages for greater insights and understanding of the scriptures.

When first grandchild Yvonne Bonnie Sisco came along Olin planted a stand of pine trees in her honor across Bogart Street, then a dirt road with two ruts. Olin was an outdoorsman and enjoyed hunting, fishing on the Susquehanna River and gardening. He had two hunting hounds named Skipper and Tony that he kept outdoors even in the coldest weather because he didn't want to "ruin" them. At times the snow would accumulate to 24-36 inches, so deep that a path needed to be dug from the house to their dog houses near the detached garage in order to feed them. Only on a few extremely cold nights did he allow them into the house for warmth.

Olin began smoking while working for Prudential. As a result of years if smoking he developed a "smoker's cough" better known as pulmonary edema. Olin suffered his first heart attack around 1960, eventually succumbing to atherosclerosis and severe myocardial fibrosis on October 10, 1965
