Charles H. Sisson. Among the native born citizens of Oklahoma there are few better known or more thrifty farmers than Charles Harris Sisson of Fort Gibson, Muskogee county, who was born December 26, 1859. George Sisson, his father, was of English ancestry and married the mother of Charles, Mary N. Harris, a quarter-blood Cherokee, in Forsythe county, Georgia, in 1856. (Then the old Cherokee Nation.)

Harris Sisson, as he is generally known, has about six hundred acres of bottom land in cultivation, usually planted to cotton, corn and potatoes. Under the Cherokee regime, Harris Sisson was the last mayor of Fort Gibson, the last judge of the middle judicial circuit and a member of the last Cherokee National Council.
