George Goldenhawk Sizemore was born in Virginia in 1783 and died in Magoffin Co., KY in 1863. He had four wives/partners and 55 children. The purpose of this project is to verify those partners and identify which partner was the mother of which children. There is no known photos of Goldenhawk, but was said to be a big man and to have hair the color of gold, from which he took his name..

Background George "Goldenhawk" Sizemore, was called Goulden in earlier times and later he went by Goldenhawk. He was born some say in North Carolina and some say Virginia. He was the son of George All Sizemore and Agnes Cornett Shepherd. He was the brother of Henry "Hunting Shirt" Sizemore. He is buried at the Mouth of Oakley Cemetery near Royalton, in Magoffin County, Kentucky. The Magoffin County Historical Society with the aid of many of his descendants, has placed a new marker for Goldenhawk in Oakley Cemetery.

George "Goldenhawk" is reputed to have fathered 55 children by, Agnes "Sallie" Anderson, Mary Ann Womack, Alethia "Ally Jendo" Richardson and Annie Elizabeth Hart.

  1. Between 1810-1812 in Hawkins County, Tennessee he married his first wife Sarah "Sallie" Anderson the daughter of George Anderson. Their children are; Elizabeth (Sizemore) Arnett, John Sizemore, William "BlackHawk" Sizemore, Nancy (Sizemore) Hoover, Susan (Sizemore) Wireman, Vina Sizemore, Florence (Sizemore) Wireman, Sarah Sizemore, Agnes "Aggie" (Sizemore) Montgomery, Catherine (Sizemore) Montgomery and Granville Sizemore.
  2. He married second wife, Mary Ann Womack. His daughters Agnes "Aggie" and Catherine Sizemore married brothers Silas and Samuel M. Montgomery.
  3. George and Alethia Richardson's children are; Polly (Sizemore) Hays, Betsy (Sizemore) Hunter, Rachel (Sizemore) Hays, Winnie (Sizemore) Martin, George B. Sizemore and Stokley Sizemore.
  4. George had a relationship with Annie Elizabeth Hart and probably fathered children with her.

So we have the four partners but we don't have fifty-five children. At the inception of this project (12/7/10), Geni only showed 38 children, and some of them might be duplicates.
