I am looking for relatives of William (b. abt 1840) and Drucilla (b. abt 1838) Sisk. There children were: Elizabeth, Eliza, William W, James H, Laura A, Julius L, Edmund P, and one other son (name unknown).

They resided in Rappahannock and Culpeper Counties in Virginia.

Amanda, I have a William Sisk, son of James Sisk. William was born about 1823. He married Jane Garrison in 1851 in Fauquier Co., VA.

All my Sisk's originated in Culpeper, Rapphannock areas of Virginia.

I am curious to find out about the Sisk family I referred to previously in the posting. I live in Culpeper County and have a small cemetary on the property that has some of the Sisks and others buried in it.

My Sisk family has many ties to Culpeper, Rappahannock, and Orange Counties. Could you tell me the names of the Sisk family members buried in the cemetery on your property...dates if there are any on the headstones. Then I can try to match them with my database.

Thanks so much for your reply

Would there happen to be a John Sisk (b 1709 in Ireland) and/or his wife Mary Whitecotton Sisk (b 1711 in Culpepper Co, VA )buried there? Their children were possibly John b 1737, Thomas b 1738, Timothy b 1740, and Robert b 1750. I know it is a long shot that they are buried there because I believe they moved to NC before their deaths. BUT maybe.... :o) Are there any other Sisks there who were born in Ireland?

The Library of Virginia has a record of a Confederate Soldier pension application by Drucilla A. (Jenkins) Sisk for her deceased husband William L. Sisk on 30 Jun 1919. In this application she names a son Elmer Sisk with whom she is living with at the time of the application. The images of the application can be found at this location Elmer's name appears on page 2 of the application (if you have trouble locating the image, contact me at and I'll e-mail you the images.)

Just found your post from 2006. My husbands family is from Culpeper (Reva) and there was an old cemetery on the farm property and we don't know exactly where it was located. Post a couple of names and we will see if its the same. Two relatives I know of were William L. Sisk 1837-1917 and Drucilla Ann Jenkins (birth/death ?).
