I admire this house every time I’m in Norwood. Sherie Shivers Luffman writes: The “Gothic Revival House” in Norwood, GA, belonged to my grandmother, Lucinda Hill Sisson (Miss Tinnie) and her husband, Edwin Sisson who owned Sisson Mercantile in Norwood for many years. “Miss Tinnie” had two sons by a previous marriage to a Wilkes, and her son, John Wilkes, who was a rural mail carrier, inherited the house. “Miss Tinnie” also had 4 children by her 2nd husband after she became widowed. They were Edwin Sisson, Jr., Jim Sisson, Helen Sisson Cole and my mother, Martha Sisson Shivers.
