Looking for information on James A. McKisson and family, some in Ark and some in Arizona that I know of. Maybe midwest. Had children named Paul,Theron, Mary, Delman. James was born in 1872 and died in 1966 in Peria, Ariz.

Mckissan-Close Enough?

My ancestress was Sarah Jane Mckissan - at least that is the spelling I have.. I am so glad to talk to someone with a similar name... I was beginning to think the name was completely wrong... She was born in PA in 1817.. I dont know where specifically... She moved west with her husband (William Bressler) in 1864 and they settled in Illinois..... Let me know if this sounds familiar...

Did he have a twin brother, or relatives that worked on the railroad? I just met a 71-year-old Winston McKesson, living in L.A, whose dad came from Ark or Ala., moved to Chicago while working on the railroad, moved to Arizona, and married...i'm thinking in that town u mentioned...there is a son still there...?
