George "All" SIZEMORE, b. 1750-1755, d. 1822 in KY, m. Agnes ""Aggy"" SHEPHERD or CORNETT, who was b. ABT 1763, d. 1833. " George is thought by some to be the son of a Cherokee Chief and a beautiful white woman (SIZEMORE?). She was captured and held briefly before rescue by her brothers, but not before she conceived a child by the Cherokee Indian chief. Aggy was a little Indian Girl captured by mistake during the rescue of 2 small white girls who were stolen from the wagon train. She was raised by the leader of the wagon train, a Mr. CORNETT. They had at least 11 children. THE MATERIAL IN BRACKETS IS DOCUMENTATION.

Another researcher believes that George "All"'s parents may have been" Edward SIZEMORE who died in 1810 in Hawkins County, TN."

Elisha Blevins said that Old Ned came from the Catawba River or the Catawba Reservation.

3 - Free White Males under 10

1 - Free White Female under 10
1 - Free White Female of 10 and under 16

Children of Joseph and Rhoda Sizemore:

1. Nelson Wilder, born Abt. 1816." 2. Polly Wilder, born Abt. 1817 in Leslie Co., Ke, buried North Sizemore Cemetary, Leslie Co. (along with half brother Russell)
3. Dennis 'Demsey' Wilder, born Abt. 1818."
4. Elizabeth 'Betsy' Wilder, born Abt. 1820. She married Calvin Collinsworth. December 18, 1850."
5. Agnes "Aggy" Wilder, born Abt. 1822. She married Milton Smith.

Because of the fact that the SIZEMORE children went by both of the surnames WILDER and SIZEMORE; and that researchers can't seem to find a "marriage record for Rhoda and Joseph, it is believed that Joseph had a" relationship with Rhoda.
