Sirena Isabel Young Wilcox
Birth: Apr. 8, 1869
Boone County
Arkansas, USA
Death: Feb. 17, 1941
Rocky Mount
Bossier Parish
Louisiana, USA

Sirena Isabel Young was the daughter of Robert Jason Young and Elizabeth Ann White (Mayfield). She was first married to Tom Chappell in Arkansas. There were several children by this marriage but only two survived, a daughter, Margreta "Maggie" Chappell and a son, Harvey Chappell. After Tom Chappell died she met Ernest Clinton Wilcox who was originally from the Illinois/Ohio area. Ernest was the son of George Daniel Wilcox and Lenora Raymond. Ernest & Sirena married on Oct. 10, 1894 in Newport, Jackson Co., Arkansas. Shortly after that they moved southward to Columbia County, Arkansas, and finally settled into Bossier parish, Louisiana. Sirena's son Harvey Chappell ran away from home shortly after his mother's marriage allegedly because of mistreatment by Ernest C. Wilcox and was never heard from again. Maggie Chappell was raised to adulthood in the family and later married Henry Kimbrell. Ernest & Sirena Wilcox had several more children of their own who grew to adulthood in Louisiana. Sirena Wilcox was later described to me by my grandmother (her daughter, Sirena Mae Bounds), to have been a very quiet, gentle & caring woman.
