About George All Sizemore

Notes for GEORGE ALL SIZEMORE: [family lore, no facts to prove or disprove -- mez]

George All Sizemore was an Indian kidnapped by mistake about 1750 and raised by a family named Cornett. Yes, George All Sizemore was the grandson of William Efraim and Winifred Greene Sizemore. The story goes that George was named All by his mother to remind him that he was all indian.

The story goes that George All Sizemore's mother was taken to the indian camp, when she was rescued and returned to husband Edward Sizemore, she had this child George All Sizemore, supposedly the son of a Indian Chief. George was given the name of Sizemore , thus the reason for the name of All to remind him he was all Indian.

George's mother, Elizabeth was the daughter of Chief Bear Hart alias William Jackson, a white name taken by Chief Bear Hart.

the following infromation from: (more indepth info there too)

http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~craingen/SIZEMORE1.html

Edward "Old Ned" Sizemore1; born prior to 1725; possibly died 1780; is first found in Lunenburg, VA records in 1746. He apparently remained in Virginia for at least three years to 1749, then possibly moved to South Carolina for about 15 years, then to Georgia for about 8 years, then was on a Surry Co, NC Tax List in 1774, and in Virginia signing a loyalty oath in 1776, and in court there for his Tory activities in 1779. Records indicate that Ned, and his sons Owen and George were apparently Tories during the Revolutionary War, and it is possible that Ned was "the Tory Sizemore" hung by Col. Benjamin Cleveland in Wilkesboro, NC in 1780. Virginia records show that Edward Sizemore was closely connected with the Green, Griffin and Jackson families.

George Sizemore is said to be the earliest Sizemore in Southeastern Kentucky, and the father of all our line - hence the name 'Of All' . There are many legends about him. The most famous story is that he was the half-breed son (born about 1750) of a white woman and a Cherokee Indian Chief, and that George's wife, Aggie Shepherd, was a full blooded Cherokee who had been taken accidentally from her village when a white raiding party, intending to rescue a white girl who had been kidnapped by the Indians, mistook Aggie for white and 'rescued' her as well.

http://trees.ancestry.com/pt/ViewAllComments.aspx?tid=138162&pid=-2105950281&pg=32768&pgPL=pid

George and "Aggie" had 12 children, including Aaron "Chief Red Bird" Brock's second wife.

http://www.geocities.com/luvacuzn5/SizemoreGeorgeAgShprdCrnt.html George Edward was a full-blooded Cherokee. Married: 1770 in Cherokee Nation, Tryon Co (now Mecklenburg Co), NC

Some of the early Sizemore settlers in America inter-married with various Native American tribes and recent DNA tests have proven that all descendant of the "George &Agnes(Shepherd-Cornett) Sizemore" lineage are definitely part Native American, though it is yet unknown as to what degree of or from what Tribe of (although some-not-all say George was half Cherokee and Aggie was full Creek). George Sizemore is said to be the earliest Sizemore in Southeastern Kentucky, and the father of all Sizemores. There are many legends about him. The most famous story is that he was the half-breed son (born about 1750) of a white woman and a Cherokee Indian Chief, and that George's wife, Aggie Shepherd, was a full blooded Cherokee who had been taken accidentally from her village when a white raiding party, intending to rescue a white girl who had been kidnapped by the Indians, mistook Aggie for white and 'rescued' her as well . These stories have no official records to back them up, but there is enough anecdotal evidence to suggest that they are at least partly true.

"Old George of All" was a hairy man and a prize fighter. He wounded William TWITTY in a fight, so that he died. SIZEMORE nursed TWITTY and would cry and tell him he had nothing against him, asking him to fight him again if he got well. SIZEMORE is a Cherokee Indian name. He is said to be half or more Indian. The SIZEMORES are very numerous in the mountains. The SIZEMORES settled first on Middle Fork, they went to Clay, Floyd, and other counties

Buried at Cemetary at the mouth of Cutshin Creek with Aggie (just where Ben Begley thought they were.)

In another part of the area, the Cherokee Indians had also captured a white girl. One Indian Chief, seeing her beauty, became desirous of possessing her for his own, and took her into his teepee. However his love was short-lived, for the girl's brothers made pursuit and brought the girl back to her own people, but under her heart she carried the child of the Indian Chief. This child was given the name George All Sizemore. (Information from Pleasie Woods (deceased).

According to the "Clay County Ancestral News" 6-1991, in an article from the John J. Dickey Diary, an interview with Felix T. Begley, Bull Creek, Kentucky, March 27, 1898 When George All grew to manhood he married the Indian girl whom Mr. Cornett had raised. George All and Agnes Shepherd thus became the progenitors of the Leslie County Sizemores. Their children were Henry, John, Edward, George, Sally Ann (who married Eli Couch) Minerva 'Winnie" who married William "Bill" Begley, Rhoda who married a Roberts and a Wilder, Ruth who married John Jones, and Susan who married a Bowling."

Much DNA testing has been done on known George All descendants. Through these tests it has been proven scientifically that George carried Native American blood. Exactly how much, from what tribe, and when that blood entered the line, is not known.

Court records from Tyron County, North Carolina show that George Sizemore was, in 1771, through process of litigation, made the executor of the estate of "William Shepherd, deceased." William was likely the father of Sizemore's wife Aggie Shepherd.

Tyron court records show that George was an active member of his community. In January 1772, for instance, he was helped administrate the construction of a road "from William Davis on Catheys Creek the nearest and best way to the province Line into the Charles Town market road."

In July 1774 there are records in Tyron County showing a court dispute between George Sizemore and William Gilbert. The transcript does not make it plain what the dispute was over, although three years earlier Gilbert had tried to earn the right to William Shepherd's estate over Sizemore. The dispute resulted in Gilbert acquitting Edward Sizemore of a sum acquired against George.

Court records further that, in October 1774 the court ordered that Sizemore appear before them to "make final settlement of his doings respecting the said estate [of William Shepherd]."

January 1776 Tyron county records show that George Sizemore was a slave owner, who sold "one Negro man Dated the 26 Day of August 1775" to William Gilbert.

In July 1778 the Tyron county, NC court records show that there was a case entitled "William Gilbert vs. George Sizemore, George Winters & Jno Morris". There is no dication as to the details of this judgment. However, it was about this time that George moved to Kentucky. This dispute may have had something to do with him moving. It seems very clear throughout all documents that there was constant animosity between William Gilbert and George.

In Kentucky Sizemore first appears on the Clay county Tax List of 1807 and then on other tax lists on down the years.

Sizemore can be seen on the 1810 and 1820 censuses for Clay County. He is listed as over 45 years of age on both census, the only ones he is listed on.

George Sizemore was dead by August of 1822 as is proved in the Clay County, court records in reference to the "Widow Sizemore".

In the late 1800s Reverend John Dickey interviewed elderly people in southeastern Kentucky. The resulting published work is the "Dickey Diaries." Several of the interviewed referred George and Aggie Sizemore. Those excerpts are as follows:

INTERVIEW WITH FELIX BEGLEY

Page 2204: "I was born March 6, 1834 in Leslie County, then Perry near the mouth of Cutshin. My great grandfather and father Begley came from Ireland. He was a weaver by trade. He came with my grandfather and is buried on Cutshin. He had a by-word 'damn-an-it'. He spoke broken English. My grandmother was Minny Sizemore. She was a daughter of "Old George Of All" Sizemore, who came with my grandfather, William Begley from Hawkins County, Tennessee. He had sons as follows: - Henry, John, Ned, and George: Minny, Rhoda, Ruth, Susan. "Old George of All" was a hairy man and a prize-fighter. He wounded William Twitty in a fight, so that he died. Sizemore nursed Twitty, would cry and tell him he had nothing against him. All he asked of him was to fight him again if he got well. Sizemore is a Cherokee Indian name. He is said to be half or more Indian. The Sizemores are very numerous in the mountains. The Sizemores settled first on Middle Fork, then went to Clay, Floyd and other Counties."

INTERVIEW WITH MRS. POLLY NORTH:

"I am 85 years old, was born in this county [Perry]. My father was a Wilder, my mother was Rhoda Sizemore [daughter of George and Aggie]. The first preacher I ever heard was Chenault, a Baptist and he preached on Cutshin. William Mattingly was the first school teacher. I remember he taught when I was a child. My grandmother's maiden name was Aggie Shepherd. I remember to have heard my grandfather Sizemore say to her 'Damn-an-it Shepherd I can't stand you much longer'."

INTERVIEW WITH PLEASIE WOODS AND DOROTHY JENKINS:

[George 'Chief Of All' Sizemore] "Was a prizefighter and was a huge dark, hairy man." "Large hairy fellow prone to getting into fights."

COMMENTS ABOUT THESE INTERVIEWS BY JOHN DICKEY HIMSELF:

"Felix Begley tells me that old Aggie Sizemore, the wife of "Old George of All", used to roast terrapins alive as the Indians used to do. Other things he told me that I am sure she was the Cherokee instead of Sizemore. Old Aggie wanted to take a skull which was found under a cliff, for a soap dish."

George All and Aggie settled in what is now Leslie County, owning most of the land opposite the town site of Hyden. This land was later owned by son John (Rockhouse) and wife, Nancy who built the first home in this section now known as Hyden. In 1842 John sold the property to James Lewis.

According to the official Leslie County, Kentucky website: "Hyden, Kentucky, the seat of Leslie county, was founded in 1878 and named for state Senator John Hyden (1814 - 1883), then state senator from Clay County and one of the commissioners appointed to establish Leslie County. The first settlers to live on the land at the mouth of Rockhouse Creek on the Middle Fork of the Kentucky River, where the town of Hyden is located, was the Sizemore family. John Sizemore, sold the land to the John Lewis Family. The land was later donated to the county and Hyden was founded there on the site of John Lewis' farm. Hyden is served by US 421, KY 80, and the Daniel Boone Parkway. The Hyden post office opened in 1879 with Leander Crawford as Postmaster."

Cleary George and Aggie were fascinating characters and well known by everyone in the area. Free spirits, tough and resourceful, maybe even a bit on the wild side. -------------------- George was a prize fighter, and killed William Twitty in a fight.

George tended the man tearfully telling him it was not personal that he had nothing against him.

George was known to be a large hairy man.

About the same time, in another section of Kentucky, the Cherokee Indians had captured a white girl. They had carried her off to their camp. An Indian Chief fell in love with the girl and took her into his teepee and she became his wife. She didn't stay with the Indian Chief long. Her brothers made pursuit after the Indians. They sneaked into the camp, got her and took her back to her own people, but she carried a child of the Indian Chief. When her child was born, he was named George All Sizemore. When he grew up he married Aggie Cornett, the Indian girl who was captured as the Sizemores and others came into Leslie County. --------------------

Variation of some old family stories say that Aggie's birth/Indian name was Shepherd, that she was raised by/adopoted by a family with the surname Cornett.

The surname Sizemore originated in England (variations of the name include Scarisbrick, Scarasbrick, Scaresbrick),

which is represented on this page by graphics of a symbol of England's flag, which is the logo of their Patron Saint, St. George --- a red cross on a white background, a reminder that St. George was said to have once slayed the "dragon" of sin from England. Some of the early Sizemore settlers in America inter-married with various Native American tribes and recent DNA tests have proven that all descendant of the "George &Agnes(Shepherd-Cornett) Sizemore" lineage are definitely part Native American, though it is yet unknown as to what degree of or from what Tribe of (although some-not-all say George was half Cherokee and Aggie was full Creek).

Notes for GEORGE ALL SIZEMORE: [family lore, no facts to prove or disprove -- mez]

George All Sizemore was an Indian kidnapped by mistake about 1750 and raised by a family named Cornett. Yes, George All Sizemore was the grandson of William Efraim and Winifred Greene Sizemore. The story goes that George was named All by his mother to remind him that he was all indian.

The story goes that George All Sizemore's mother was taken to the indian camp, when she was rescued and returned to husband Edward Sizemore, she had this child George All Sizemore, supposedly the son of a Indian Chief. George was given the name of Sizemore , thus the reason for the name of All to remind him he was all Indian.

George's mother, Elizabeth was the daughter of Chief Bear Hart alias William Jackson, a white name taken by Chief Bear Hart.

--------------------

the following infromation from: (more indepth info there too)

http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~craingen/SIZEMORE1.html

Edward "Old Ned" Sizemore1; born prior to 1725; possibly died 1780; is first found in Lunenburg, VA records in 1746. He apparently remained in Virginia for at least three years to 1749, then possibly moved to South Carolina for about 15 years, then to Georgia for about 8 years, then was on a Surry Co, NC Tax List in 1774, and in Virginia signing a loyalty oath in 1776, and in court there for his Tory activities in 1779. Records indicate that Ned, and his sons Owen and George were apparently Tories during the Revolutionary War, and it is possible that Ned was "the Tory Sizemore" hung by Col. Benjamin Cleveland in Wilkesboro, NC in 1780. Virginia records show that Edward Sizemore was closely connected with the Green, Griffin and Jackson families.

George Sizemore is said to be the earliest Sizemore in Southeastern Kentucky, and the father of all our line - hence the name 'Of All' . There are many legends about him. The most famous story is that he was the half-breed son (born about 1750) of a white woman and a Cherokee Indian Chief, and that George's wife, Aggie Shepherd, was a full blooded Cherokee who had been taken accidentally from her village when a white raiding party, intending to rescue a white girl who had been kidnapped by the Indians, mistook Aggie for white and 'rescued' her as well.

http://trees.ancestry.com/pt/ViewAllComments.aspx?tid=138162&pid=-2105950281&pg=32768&pgPL=pid

George and "Aggie" had 12 children, including Aaron "Chief Red Bird" Brock's second wife.

http://www.geocities.com/luvacuzn5/SizemoreGeorgeAgShprdCrnt.html George Edward was a full-blooded Cherokee. Married: 1770 in Cherokee Nation, Tryon Co (now Mecklenburg Co), NC

Some of the early Sizemore settlers in America inter-married with various Native American tribes and recent DNA tests have proven that all descendant of the "George &Agnes(Shepherd-Cornett) Sizemore" lineage are definitely part Native American, though it is yet unknown as to what degree of or from what Tribe of (although some-not-all say George was half Cherokee and Aggie was full Creek). George Sizemore is said to be the earliest Sizemore in Southeastern Kentucky, and the father of all Sizemores. There are many legends about him. The most famous story is that he was the half-breed son (born about 1750) of a white woman and a Cherokee Indian Chief, and that George's wife, Aggie Shepherd, was a full blooded Cherokee who had been taken accidentally from her village when a white raiding party, intending to rescue a white girl who had been kidnapped by the Indians, mistook Aggie for white and 'rescued' her as well . These stories have no official records to back them up, but there is enough anecdotal evidence to suggest that they are at least partly true.

"Old George of All" was a hairy man and a prize fighter. He wounded William TWITTY in a fight, so that he died. SIZEMORE nursed TWITTY and would cry and tell him he had nothing against him, asking him to fight him again if he got well. SIZEMORE is a Cherokee Indian name. He is said to be half or more Indian. The SIZEMORES are very numerous in the mountains. The SIZEMORES settled first on Middle Fork, they went to Clay, Floyd, and other counties

Buried at Cemetary at the mouth of Cutshin Creek with Aggie (just where Ben Begley thought they were.)

In another part of the area, the Cherokee Indians had also captured a white girl. One Indian Chief, seeing her beauty, became desirous of possessing her for his own, and took her into his teepee. However his love was short-lived, for the girl's brothers made pursuit and brought the girl back to her own people, but under her heart she carried the child of the Indian Chief. This child was given the name George All Sizemore. (Information from Pleasie Woods (deceased).

According to the "Clay County Ancestral News" 6-1991, in an article from the John J. Dickey Diary, an interview with Felix T. Begley, Bull Creek, Kentucky, March 27, 1898 When George All grew to manhood he married the Indian girl whom Mr. Cornett had raised. George All and Agnes Shepherd thus became the progenitors of the Leslie County Sizemores. Their children were Henry, John, Edward, George, Sally Ann (who married Eli Couch) Minerva 'Winnie" who married William "Bill" Begley, Rhoda who married a Roberts and a Wilder, Ruth who married John Jones, and Susan who married a Bowling."

Much DNA testing has been done on known George All descendants. Through these tests it has been proven scientifically that George carried Native American blood. Exactly how much, from what tribe, and when that blood entered the line, is not known.

Court records from Tyron County, North Carolina show that George Sizemore was, in 1771, through process of litigation, made the executor of the estate of "William Shepherd, deceased." William was likely the father of Sizemore's wife Aggie Shepherd.

Tyron court records show that George was an active member of his community. In January 1772, for instance, he was helped administrate the construction of a road "from William Davis on Catheys Creek the nearest and best way to the province Line into the Charles Town market road."

In July 1774 there are records in Tyron County showing a court dispute between George Sizemore and William Gilbert. The transcript does not make it plain what the dispute was over, although three years earlier Gilbert had tried to earn the right to William Shepherd's estate over Sizemore. The dispute resulted in Gilbert acquitting Edward Sizemore of a sum acquired against George.

Court records further that, in October 1774 the court ordered that Sizemore appear before them to "make final settlement of his doings respecting the said estate [of William Shepherd]."

January 1776 Tyron county records show that George Sizemore was a slave owner, who sold "one Negro man Dated the 26 Day of August 1775" to William Gilbert.

In July 1778 the Tyron county, NC court records show that there was a case entitled "William Gilbert vs. George Sizemore, George Winters & Jno Morris". There is no dication as to the details of this judgment. However, it was about this time that George moved to Kentucky. This dispute may have had something to do with him moving. It seems very clear throughout all documents that there was constant animosity between William Gilbert and George.

In Kentucky Sizemore first appears on the Clay county Tax List of 1807 and then on other tax lists on down the years.

Sizemore can be seen on the 1810 and 1820 censuses for Clay County. He is listed as over 45 years of age on both census, the only ones he is listed on.

George Sizemore was dead by August of 1822 as is proved in the Clay County, court records in reference to the "Widow Sizemore".

In the late 1800s Reverend John Dickey interviewed elderly people in southeastern Kentucky. The resulting published work is the "Dickey Diaries." Several of the interviewed referred George and Aggie Sizemore. Those excerpts are as follows: INTERVIEW WITH FELIX BEGLEY

Page 2204: "I was born March 6, 1834 in Leslie County, then Perry near the mouth of Cutshin. My great grandfather and father Begley came from Ireland. He was a weaver by trade. He came with my grandfather and is buried on Cutshin. He had a by-word 'damn-an-it'. He spoke broken English. My grandmother was Minny Sizemore. She was a daughter of "Old George Of All" Sizemore, who came with my grandfather, William Begley from Hawkins County, Tennessee. He had sons as follows: - Henry, John, Ned, and George: Minny, Rhoda, Ruth, Susan. "Old George of All" was a hairy man and a prize-fighter. He wounded William Twitty in a fight, so that he died. Sizemore nursed Twitty, would cry and tell him he had nothing against him. All he asked of him was to fight him again if he got well. Sizemore is a Cherokee Indian name. He is said to be half or more Indian. The Sizemores are very numerous in the mountains. The Sizemores settled first on Middle Fork, then went to Clay, Floyd and other Counties." INTERVIEW WITH MRS. POLLY NORTH:

"I am 85 years old, was born in this county [Perry]. My father was a Wilder, my mother was Rhoda Sizemore [daughter of George and Aggie]. The first preacher I ever heard was Chenault, a Baptist and he preached on Cutshin. William Mattingly was the first school teacher. I remember he taught when I was a child. My grandmother's maiden name was Aggie Shepherd. I remember to have heard my grandfather Sizemore say to her 'Damn-an-it Shepherd I can't stand you much longer'." INTERVIEW WITH PLEASIE WOODS AND DOROTHY JENKINS:

[George 'Chief Of All' Sizemore] "Was a prizefighter and was a huge dark, hairy man." "Large hairy fellow prone to getting into fights." COMMENTS ABOUT THESE INTERVIEWS BY JOHN DICKEY HIMSELF:

"Felix Begley tells me that old Aggie Sizemore, the wife of "Old George of All", used to roast terrapins alive as the Indians used to do. Other things he told me that I am sure she was the Cherokee instead of Sizemore. Old Aggie wanted to take a skull which was found under a cliff, for a soap dish."

George All and Aggie settled in what is now Leslie County, owning most of the land opposite the town site of Hyden. This land was later owned by son John (Rockhouse) and wife, Nancy who built the first home in this section now known as Hyden. In 1842 John sold the property to James Lewis.

According to the official Leslie County, Kentucky website: "Hyden, Kentucky, the seat of Leslie county, was founded in 1878 and named for state Senator John Hyden (1814 - 1883), then state senator from Clay County and one of the commissioners appointed to establish Leslie County. The first settlers to live on the land at the mouth of Rockhouse Creek on the Middle Fork of the Kentucky River, where the town of Hyden is located, was the Sizemore family. John Sizemore, sold the land to the John Lewis Family. The land was later donated to the county and Hyden was founded there on the site of John Lewis' farm. Hyden is served by US 421, KY 80, and the Daniel Boone Parkway. The Hyden post office opened in 1879 with Leander Crawford as Postmaster."

Cleary George and Aggie were fascinating characters and well known by everyone in the area. Free spirits, tough and resourceful, maybe even a bit on the wild side. -------------------- George was a prize fighter, and killed William Twitty in a fight.

George tended the man tearfully telling him it was not personal that he had nothing against him.

George was known to be a large hairy man.

About the same time, in another section of Kentucky, the Cherokee Indians had captured a white girl. They had carried her off to their camp. An Indian Chief fell in love with the girl and took her into his teepee and she became his wife. She didn't stay with the Indian Chief long. Her brothers made pursuit after the Indians. They sneaked into the camp, got her and took her back to her own people, but she carried a child of the Indian Chief. When her child was born, he was named George All Sizemore. When he grew up he married Aggie Cornett, the Indian girl who was captured as the Sizemores and others came into Leslie County. --------------------
