1892 Jennie (Eliza Jane) Sisler Marriage
  The 1892 marriage record of Jennie Sisler to Jessee Carmon gives Jennie's mother's name as Mary.

It is remembered by Ewing Miller, he and his sister Pearl went to the store at Haydentown there 
meeting their great Uncle Wesley.  Wesley walked back with them.  They went thru the woods to 
their home.  Upon coming to a fence Wesley spit tobacco juice all over the fence before he let any 
of them cross it.  He said that it would keep the witches away.  He also used to kill snakes and 
hang them on three poles to keep witches away.
