  • Notes 
    • 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
