The funeral of Oscar F. Sisson of Bristol, who died after several months illness, on Friday, April 7, aged 62 years, was held from his late home on Sunday afternoon, Rev. S. M. Day officiating clergyman.
Mr. Sisson was well-known throughout Ontario County. At one time he lived in Canadice where he married his second wife, Miss Jennie Mather. It was very fitting that Rev. Day should officiate at his funeral, he having united him at his second marriage, and also that of his son, Spencer G. Sisson to Miss Bessie Blackmer.
Mrs. Jennie M. Sisson died on February 27, 1924, at the home of her son, on the Bristol road, aged 81 years.
Mrs. Sisson was well known here to the older inhabitants of the town. Her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Mather, lived just across the line in Livonia, Livingston county. In her girlhood days she taught school in this town. Later she married Oscar Sisson, who at that time resided here.
The family moved from here to Bristol, where the remainder of her life was spent.
She was a member of the Congregational Church of Bristol.
She is survived by one son, Spencer G. Sisson, with whom she had a home; a step-son, Frank O. Sisson, of Canadaigua; a brother, Rev. F. D. Mather, of California, (once our pastor); one sister, wife of Rev. W. R. Benham, of Beverly, Mass.
Funeral services were held from the home on Saturday, March 1, Rev. Charles Paille, of Endicott, officiating.
The body will be placed in the vault in Woodlawn cemetery, Canadaigua.
