Please note some personal info has been deleted.

I just noticed your memorial on John Wesley Sisco. I'm good friends with his great grandson. He was born and raised in Kentucky and his mother was alive until 1999. He has been back to the Sisco counties several times and taken pictures of John Wesley Sisco's grave. If I can find it I'll post it.

Anyway, here's the problem. John Wesley's parents was John Riley Sisco and Elizabeth Riley. We've both seen that death certificate and don't understand how his name got listed as John Wesley. We are both in agreement that is an error on the death certificate. Unfortunately, we as genealogist believe in the paper trail and what's on it. Sometimes, however, it appears to be wrong.

I think his information came from his mother. She was born in 1910 and I would think she knew her grandfather.

Would you please put a note on the memorial indicating the possible mix-up.
