By 1790, four Sixberry-named families resided in surrounding Watervliet but the name had disappeared from the city census.
In 1815, laborer William "Sigsby" was living in the rear of 153 N. Market Street.
Since then, the Sixberry name has spread across New York and the United States. Especially interesting today, is the energy directed to family genealogy as shown on the Internet.
