Dates of existence


Benjamin, George and David Sisco were hotelkeepers during the late 1890s and early 1900s in the Eastern Townships. Benjamin in Mansonville, George in Knowlton and Cowansville and David in Sutton. They were the sons of Calvin and Eliza (Johnson) Sisco of Richford, Vermont. George and Benjamin entered a business partnership in the 1890s to be known as the Sisco Bros. They were in partnership for a short time with Leman Greene at the Lake View House, Knowlton and also with James O'Halloran at the Ottawa Hotel in Cowansville. All three brothers died within the years 1901-1902 leaving minor children for whom tutorships were appointed. Their careers as hotel proprietors were cut short by their early deaths and brought about much litigation in settling of their estates as their papers show.
