Descendants of

George "All" Sizemore

and
"Aggie"
Agnes (Shepherd-Cornett) Sizemore

Disclaimer


George "All" Sizemore
(Not to be confused with George Edward Sizemore who married Anna Elizabeth Hart.)
b: Abt 1754 Halifax Co, VA
d: 13 Jul 1822 Clay Co, KY
MARRIED:
Agnes "Aggie" Shepherd-Cornett,
in Abt 1770, in Cherokee Nation, Tryon Co (now Mecklenburg Co), NC
b: Abt 1753
d: Abt 1833

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).
The Sizemore Indian heritage is represented on this page
by graphics of an Indian head superimposed over England's flag,
and of a joining of England's flag with the Native American
Medicine Wheel shield --- an emblem of the "Circle of Life"
of which all races (red, yellow, black, white) are a part.

    answered the judge's question something like,
    "If I'd been as good lookin as YOU, there would have been MORE!"
