Descendants of Michael Sizemore


5. HENRY3 SIZEMORE (WILLIAM2, MICHAEL1) was born Abt. 1698. He married (1) ELIZABETH PARKER. He married (2) ELIZABETH RHODES Abt. 1721 in Henrico Co., Va..

Notes for H
ENRY SIZEMORE:
William (m. Margery) b. ca. 1670 in London; his father was Michael, a merchant of London who appears to have been R1b. The Q American Indian haplotype only appears in the male descendants of his grandchild Tory Ned b. abt. 1720 and George All, a great-grandchild, b. 1754. The likely suspect is Henry Sizemore b. abt. 1698 according to Alan Lerwick's recent speculation, based on land records. Even according to an extended haplotype, it is the very same Q DNA. The only descendants of this Indian male who developed a distinguishing mutation were the Barnwell District, S.C. Ephraim cluster, which has a value of 18 in DYS 464d.(This is my line, btw, from Richard Sizemore, whose daughter Mary Ann married my gg-grandfather Jackson Cooper). Henry's brother, Ephraim b. abt. 1696 continued the R1b line, though he married a part-Indian named Mary and their child Ephraim was recorded as a Mulatto (contemporary term for taxed Indian). Ephraim was mixed from the mother, not the father; his Y-chromosome haplotype continued to be R1b. His brother William (m. Winifred Greene, who was Jewish) passed the R1b gene to John H. Sizemore who married Mollie Gregory (who was Jewish). These Gregories moved with the Yateses, Coopers, Sheldons, and Rameys through Pittsylvania Co., and Mordecai Gregory was part of a minyan in Wayne Co., Ky. with Isaac Cooper and John Adair and others. There is no male-only Indian genetics in any of Ephraim's descendants.

So Edward (Tory Ned) and James (father of George All) must both have come from the same father; if Henry himself was not the carrier of Q3 he was cuckolded twice by the same Indian male and raised Edward and James as his own. George All's mother (Henry Sizemore's wife, Elizabeth Rhodes, told him he was "all" Indian (she herself may have been another Mulatto; her name was probably the origin of the numerous Rhodas in the family, but it is more likely James' unknown wife was Indian or part-Indian as he was), and the legends say the Indians tried to take him back. Edward also married a Mulatto woman, Elizabeth Jackson, whose father William Jackson (married to Dorcas Greene) had the Cherokee chief's name of Bear Hart. So we see a definite pattern in this line from Henry, who is only sketchily attested in the records.

Also, I think James' other son, Edward Sizemore, of Hawkins Co. (where the Sizemores also bear the Q signature) was the father (with Mahala Jackson -- now there's a Melungeon name!) of the easily confusable George (Edward) Sizemore 1769-1859 who married another Sizemore (Lydia) in cousin marriage.[Sizemore.FTW]
