The Stephen Cissna who died in Ohio and who served in the Rev. War was born Stephen Sisney in 1755 to Thomas and Mary Sisney, according to babtismal records. Any competent genealogical research must begin with the following hypothesis: Sisney and Cessna are two different families. The tax records for Cumberland, Franklin, and Bedford county from 1766 to 1800s show multiple Sisney family units living at the same time as Cessnas living in other Townships. No proof exists that they are the same family. If you have some verifiable proof or evidence, I would like to see it. you and many otherss are mistaken about your heritage. No question about it.
