: Disambiguation: This Edward is not the same as Edward B. Sizemore (1788-1866) of Ashe, North Carolina (son of a different George Sizemore) and who later settled in West Virginia.


The Life Summary of Edward === :When Edward Sizemore was born in 1778, in Shenandoah Valley, Shenandoah, Virginia, United States,citation needed his father, George Sizemore, was 28 and his mother, AgnesCornett (?) Shepherd (?), was 28. He married Louanna (Lucinda) Bowling in 1796, in Hawkins, Tennessee, United States. They were the parents of at least 8 sons and 6 daughters. He lived in Clay, Kentucky, United States for about 10 years. He died on 27 May 1856, in Perry, Kentucky, United States, at the age of 78.

Birth ===There are several claims about where and when Edward was born; we seekreliable sources for each of them

  • 1778 in Shenandoah, Prince Williams County, Virginia
  • ABT 1778 in Prince Williams County, Virginia
  • 1778 in North Carolina
  • 1778 in Shanandoah Co., (Now Page Co. ,) Virginia

Parents ===That Edward Sizemore (1778-1856) was son of George Sizemore and Agnes (1750-1839) is supported by Edward's death record which names them.≤ref name=death>Perry County Death records, LDS Film # 004255376, image 135 of 636; unindexed.≤/ref> On the same page is Edward's sister Winnie (Winifred) who had married a Begly. (1750–1822)

Edward is said by some,citation needed to have been half Cherokee Indian. If that were true, one of his parents would have had to have been full-blood.

Research Notes

See the Find-A-Grave link below for photographs of a Ned Sizemore and an Owen Sizemore (who may or may not be this Ned Sizemore as photography was not in common use until far later).: The Find-a-Grave memorials, for at least his parents, are highly unreliable and conflating multiple people in one memorial. Use with caution.
One sourcecitation needed shows him having a brother named Owen and another brother Reverend George J. Sizemore: That source is likely confusing him with another George Sizemore family in North Carolina (not Kentucky).
The Find-A-Grave memorial appears to have conflated two Edwards; it has Edward married to Annie B. Baldwin 1786 – and a son Owen O. Sizemore 1829 – 1902. This appears to be for a different Edward Sizemore.
It also has spouse Martha Patty Fields 1782 – wit a child Isaac Newton Sizemore 1808 –
And a spouse Lucinda Louannah Bolling (Bowling) 1780 – 1820 with children: Ephraim Sizemore – 1858; Elizabeth Sizemore 1798 – ; William Sizemore 1798 – Lewis Sizemore 1799 – ; Winnie Sizemore 1801 – ; Henry Sizemore 1803 – 1850; Edward 'Slim Red' Sizemore 1804 – ; George Washington Sizemore 1805 – 1915Nancy Sizemore 1806 – ; Susan 'Suz Anne' Sizemore 1807 – ; Sarah 'White Sally' Sizemore 1810 – ; Christopher 'Kit' Sizemore 1815 – ;Sylvania Sizemore 1816 –
Warning: Don Greene has included the Sizemore family in his highly fictional Shawnee Heritage Series,in particular, here. Use with high caution.
