Searching for the parents of Timothy W. Sisk, born in 1810 in Kentucky, married lst Louisa Miller in 1831, had daughter Louisa Sisk, married 2nd to Nancy Hunter (believed to be the daughter of David Hunter) in 1835 had daughter Dorinda Adelaide Sisk in 1836 and George Washington Sisk in 1845 born in Hopkins County, Kentucky. Timothy may have been connected to an Andrew, Thomas, Willis, or Asa Sisk. This whole family moved to Shelby County, Illinois by 1850. Family tradition says that Timothy was one of 3 sons. We believe the initial W. stood for William.
