105. Giles SISSON (Thomas , George , Richard ) was born 1715 in Portsmouth, Newport Co., Rhode Island. He died about 1790 in Stephentown, Rensselaer Co., New York.

Giles Sisson's date of birth may have been about 1715, in Portsmouth or Newport, Rhode Island, but those data have not been proven. He is thought to have died in Stephentown, New York, or in Albany County, New York. He, his wife Elizabeth, and their family moved to Westerly, RI, and then, after 1761, to New York State.  They lived on the River Road above Unadilla before 1808. After Giles' death, some members of his family moved on to Indiana. There is a will, found by Carol Sisson Regehr in 1998, of a Giles Sisson (not necessarily this one) made in 1811 in Herkimer County, New York. SOURCES: "Pioneers of Unadilla Village (NY)," Anonymous. 1902; "Sisson Family Records of RI," 022,335; "Sisson," William Taylor Butts. 929.27A #3199, L.D.S. Archives.

Jiles Sisson

Samuel Sisson

Giles married Elizabeth in 1745/1746 in Newburyport, , Rhode Island. Elizabeth was born about 1725 in Newburyport, Essex Co., Massachusetts.

Elizabeth's name may have been Elizabeth Arnold. She moved with her husband Giles Sisson and their family from Westerly, RI, to Unadilla, NY. Elizabeth's death date and place have been reported as July 23, 1811, in Abraham, Indiana, [from Olsen's book "Ancestry and Descendants of Ezra Sisson"] however this is doubtful as the move of some family members to Indiana did not take place until 1818. Elizabeth is possibly a great-granddaughter of Benedict Arnold I, the first colonial governor of Rhode Island. This Benedict Arnold I was also the great-grandfather, through another line, of Benedict Arnold IV, the general in the American Revolution who defected to the British side. Benedict Arnold I is also an ancestor of American Presidents George Bush (41st president) and James Garfield (20th president).

106. William SISSON (Thomas , George , Richard ) was born about 1717 in Portsmouth, Newport Co., Rhode Island. He died 16 Aug 1775 in Westerly, Washington Co., Rhode Island.
