1.EDWARD SIZEMORE

 

    Edward Sizemore was born in NC, probably about 1725 and died in NC

about 1780.

    Edward has long been believed to have been a Cherokee Indian, but

several researchers disagree and cite the fact that although about

2,000 Sizemore descendants have filed claims for Government

compensation for lost Cherokee land, not a single claim has been

allowed.  Ron Blevins and Frank Sizemore believe that the first Indian

in the family was the wife of Edward Sizemore and that her name was

Aruna Hart.

 

Known child of Edward and Aruna (Hart) Sizemore.
