"Meigs County, Ohio, History Book" c1987 by the Meigs County Pioneer and Historical Society, v 2, page 322, FHL 997.199 H2m, says "Martha 'Mattie' Sisson was born 11/2/1866 and died 1/7/1947.

Sarepta was called "Annie S. Sisson" in the 1900 Randolph County, Arkansas, census [maybe the census taker couldn't spell Sarepta?]. The name "Sarepta" comes from the Bible, from Luke 4:26, King James version. Sarepta is the Greek form of the name of the town Zarephath, where the prophet Elijah resided during a famine in Old Testament times (see 1 Kings 17).
