Now that's Really PERSISTENCE...
San Francisco Siskron Cousins were
found online by their Shreveport Cousin, Dr. Siskron. Dr. Siskron sat down at the computer every two
months and clicked onto google with the name "SISKRON", hoping to someday find his lost Cousins again. He had been
doing this for several years. In 2001, Ginger Hopp posted here website and decided to dedicate an entire page to
her Ancestory, hoping a lost relative or even a friend of a relative would contact her.
Within a few weeks of putting this
website live, Dr. Siskron sent a message via the input boxes requesting contact. How exciting that was to be discovered
by a family member you didn't even know existed. Wow, what a wonderful way to meet. The San Francisco Siskron's
didn't even know they had yet more Cousins... in Louisianna.
A long time ago, they were a
very close-knit family from South Carolina; their Great Grandfather's were brothers and had gone their separate ways.
One brother landed in the state of Louisianna while the other brother settled in NEVADA for a few decades
and then later relocated in Santa Rosa, California with his brothers.
Charles William Siskron had
raised his family in Humbolt County in the state of NEVADA. He settled in a small town where he was loved and respected.
The town was called "SISKRON". When Charles Siskron took the position of County Sheriff in Carson City, he relocated
his family completely only leaving behind his name. The town of "SISKRON" was later renamed to "Paradise Valley",
where you can still find a plaque in his honor at the Olde Post Office Square.
