He was born some say in North Carolina and some say Virginia the son of George "All" Sizemore a Cherokee Indian and Agnes Cornett Shepherd. He was the brother of Henry "Hunting Shirt" Sizemore. Between 1810-1812 in Hawkins County, Tennessee he married his first wife Sarah "Sallie" Anderson the daughter of George Anderson. Their children are; Elizabeth (Sizemore) Arnett, John Sizemore, William "BlackHawk" Sizemore, Nancy (Sizemore) Hoover, Susan (Sizemore) Wireman, Vina Sizemore, Florence (Sizemore) Wireman, Sarah Sizemore, Agnes "Aggie" (Sizemore) Montgomery, Catherine (Sizemore) Montgomery and Granville Sizemore. He married second wife, Mary Ann Womack. His daughters Agnes "Aggie" and Catherine Sizemore married brothers Silas and Samuel M. Montgomery, brothers of my great great grandfather, Miles Montgomery. George "Goldenhawk" is reputed to have fathered 55 children by, Sarah "Sallie" Anderson, Mary Ann Womack, Alethia "Ally Jendo" Richardson and Annie Elizabeth Hart. George "Goldenhawk and Alethia's children are; Polly (Sizemore) Hays, Betsy (Sizemore) Hunter, Rachel (Sizemore) Hays, Winnie (Sizemore) Martin, George B. Sizemore and Stokley Sizemore. There is no known photos of Goldenhawk, but was said to be a big man and to have hair the color of gold, where he got his name from. He is buried at the Mouth of Oakley Cemetery near Royalton, in Magoffin County, Kentucky. There was found his headstone and a second stone with the initials G.S. and S.S. It appears that the stone with the initials is actually a footstone for Goldenhawk's grave. It is not known where Sallie Anderson Sizemore, his first wife is buried. The Magoffin County Historical Society with the aid of many of his descendants, has placed a new marker for Goldenhawk in Oakley Cemetery.
