  • Notes 
    • Frances "Luther" Sisco was born to Stephen and Mary Ann Johnson Sisco on Tuesday, May 24, 1870 in Nicholson, Pennsylvania. The US Federal census of 1880 confirms that Luther was living at home with his parents in Nicholson. Luther married Mary Mercy Phillips who was nine years his junior on August 25, 1895 in Factoryville, PA. Dorotha (Sisco) Thomas, Luthers grand daughter relates the story that Luther worked for Mary's father who owed Luther money. Since he couldn't pay, he gave Mary to Luther in payment. By 1900, the Federal Census shows Luther as married to Mary Phillips and having two children, Olin and Clara.

      Luther was a carpenter and bridge builder who worked on the Nicholson Railroad Bridge in Nicholson, Pennsylvania. His grandson, Leon Sisco recalls visiting him in a shanty village as he was building the bridge. In 1910, the US census shows the Sisco's living on Capwell Hill Road in Clinton, PA. In 1920, Luther and Mary, now in their forties were living alone on Silk Mill Road, Hallstead, PA. It is intereseting to note that their neighbors were the Elveys and Chidesters who would be their neighbors in other locations. In 1930, they were living on River Road with their thirteen year old grandson George "Lloyd" Jamison living with them as his mother Clara Sisco Jamison had died of the "Spanish Influenza" in 1920.

      In 1940, Luther and Mary were living on Road 710 (now Bogart Avenue) in Hallstead in the "Severson's" house that was purchased for them by their son Olin. Olin, Ethel and their three children were living down the dirt road in the home that the Luther was originally living in. See Olin Sisco's narrative for the reasons for the living arrangements.

      He possessed a bad temper. Luther died in Scranton, PA at the Moses Taylor Hospital.
