Notes: Alice's father recorded her birth in his Boone Bible as R. A. Boone, which stood for Rachel
Alice. However, HER family Bible and her tombstone shows the name Alice R. Sisson.
Several of her descendants have said her name was Alice Rachel, therefore this is the way I
have listed her name. Peggy Weaver Sisson of Hopewell, Virginia found a copy of her
obituary. It is copied below.
