Hi Kathy,
Thanks for posting your message on Temple Winchester Sisney. My father-in-law, Revis Evert Sisney is 89 years old and although his memory is getting a little fuzzy, he is still pretty sharp. He worked on genealogy when he was younger but could never really get back earlier than Temple Winchester. I'm trying to work on it so that perhaps he can hear about his roots before he's gone from this earth. He keeps thinking he descends from the French and perhaps he does but my mother was dead sure that my dad's line was British because our last name was Holwick and she thought of all the British "wicks" but after much time and research I found that our name coming to this country in 1742 from Germany was Holbein and spelled hundreds of ways throughout the generations here in America. I know this is not a unique story. I'm learning as I go. I'd appreciate your sharing information and I will do the same. what is your e-mail address? Mine is
