Alexander Hisey

Birth: Nov. 28, 1816
Virginia, USA
Death: May 21, 1903
Mitchell County
Kansas, USA

I know very little about my ancestor, Alexander Hisey. Records show that he was born in Virginia, but he may actually be from what is now West Virginia. The Elmwood Cemetery records probably give his actual birthdate, Nov. 28th, 1816. The 1900 Census gives May 1812, which has the wrong year.

He spent many years in Ohio. I have a marriage date for him and his wife, Mary Ann Dawthitt, Nov. 5th, 1838. This was in Jackson Co., Ohio. He is shown in the Census as being a blacksmith.

At some point in the 1850s he moved his family to Henry Co., Missouri, where there are others of the Hisey surname. In the 1860 Census this family in Jackson twp., Johnson Co., Missouri. He was till shown to be a blacksmith.

I descend from Alexander's daughter, Sarah M. Summers. She died before her father did.

Obit: The Beloit Gazette, May 28, 1903

"A. Hisey aged 86 years died at the home of his grandson, O. L. Summers last Thursday. The funeral was held from residence Friday, and internment was held in Elmwood."

My source is the Mitchell County Historical Society.
