John E. Hissom (1869) & Nellie G. Reed (1883) PA
Looking for the parents of John E. HISSOM (1869-1956). John and his parents were allegedly born in Ohio. There were many settlers with the name Hissom or variations such as Hissem or Haysham in east central Ohio (Monroe, Washington), southwest Pennsylvania (Allegheny, Westmoreland, Fayette), and northwest West Virginia (Wetzel, Tyler, Pleasants, Wood, Jackson) going back to 1800 and earlier. Most were farmers. Some worked in the coal mines or on steamboats on the Ohio River.
There was a John Hissim in Westmoreland County by 1800. A John Hessom / Hesiam from Northampton county was awarded a military pension in 1818 for service during the American Revolution. Also from Northampton County, William Hissom and Abner Hissom were privates in Captain Timothy Jayne’s Company, mustering at Brunswick on July 27, 1776. There was an Isaac Hisen who migrated from Northampton County to Allegheny County before 1810 and a John Hesham and a David Hesham in Lawrenceville, Pitt Township in 1810.
John E. HISSOM and much of his family are buried in Olive Branch Cemetery in Belle Vernon, PA. Below are the children of John E. Hissom and Nellie G. Reed. Year of birth (y.o.b.) and spouse's names are shown.
