Francis Marion Sirles, the son of Allen Sirles and Elizabeth Harris, was born on December 4, 1848 in Grayson County Kentucky. His paternal grandparents were Joseph Sirles and Martha "Patsy" Roberts, who were married in Logan County, Kentucky in 1812. He married Sarah Jane Layman, the daughter of Stephen Layman and Susan Kimble, on February 13, 1873, probably in Grayson County, Kentucky. At the time of the 1880 Census of Millwood, Kentucky the family consisted of: Francis, a farmer, age 30; his wife Sarah J., age 26; and children: John O., age 6 (b. 25 Jan 1874); Mary E., age 4 (b. 5 Dec 1875); and Hattie, age 1 (b. 3 Aug 1878). Children born after that time were: Emma, b. 17 Nov 1880; Ruby, b. 18 Mar 1885; Allen Cleveland, b. 7 Oct 1887; and Huburt, b. 14 Mar 1892.

Frances Marion "Jean" Sirles died on January 22, 1926 in Grayson County, Kentucky. Note that the Kentucky Death Record shows him as Jean M. Sirles. The original record needs to be checked for the correct spelling of his name. He was buried in the Wilson Cemetery near Ready, Grayson County, Kentucky. His widow Sarah joined him there after her death on December 9, 1936.
