Henry Sisson has been difficult to track as there appear to have been several in Richmond County at that time. Our Henry was probably born about 1765 and most likely in Richmond County.

In 1779 a Henry Sisson was listed as a 2nd Lieutenant in the Richmond County Militia during the Revolutionary War. This seems like an unlikely match given our Henry's young age. In July of 1813 a Henry Sisson was listed as a private in Captain Richard Omohundro's Company, he would have been about 48 at the time so this may not be a match either.

Henry married to Winifred Smith on February 5th, 1787 in Richmond County. Mother of the bride Winifred Dudley gave her consent.

On September 21st, 1787 Col. Hudson Muse sold to a Henry Sisson "A tract of land in Richmond County - near the Beaver Dams." This is another record that I am unsure about.

In 1783 Henry Sisson was listed on the County tax list. The 1810 census lists a Henry Sisson as a family head as being over 45 with one male 10-15, two females over 45 and 11 slaves. A Henry Sisson is also listed in 1820 with family members including; one male under 10, one male 16-25, one male over 45, one female 10-15, one 16-25, one 26-44 and one over 45, plus one male slave under 14. Of those records the 1820 seems to be the best match.

Henry wrote his will on June 30th, 1821. He named his wife, Winney, as his first heir to receive all of estate during her natural life. Next he left parcels of land to his sons John and Henry. The land he gave to John had been purchased from Lemuel Sandy and the land to son Henry was where Henry currently lived. He instructed that the rest of his estate should be divided between his daughters, Elizabeth Reynolds and Mary B. Sisson. Henry was able to sign his own will. The will was not proven in Richmond County Court until April 5th, 1830.
