According to researchers the names Cissell and Cecil are interchangeable spellings in Maryland and Kentucky research. Born in a family of 13 offspring into a farming family near Fancy Farm, Kentucky. His athletic ability led him to play baseball as a pitcher for the local team, his talent caught the attention of the St. Louis Cardinals. They asked him to try out for them but that wasn't permitted by his parents because he was needed to work on the farm. The first night of his marriage the house they were in was hit by a cyclone which removed the entire roof and set it into a nearby field without a shingle being misplaced.
Didn't want to farm tobacco like most everyone else so he turned to farming crops of cotton, soybeans, corn, wheat and hay for livestock. He drew pictures in his 8th grade composition book as part of his education, then later in life he continued to draw pictures entertaining his children during inclement weather. The children have memories of these drawings being very realistic and easily drawn by him. "One very early Sunday morning on the way to mass, I fondly remember being carried high on my father's shoulders in the dark, as the full moon followed us while listening to the crunch of each footstep along the gravely road." - daughter Sue Bailey
