Kentucky Genealogy From Dr. John J. Dickey’s Diary.
Interview with FELIX T. BEGLEY,

Bull Creek, 27 March 1898

A relative of Polly North’s?

I was born 6 March 1834 in Leslie Co., then Perry, near the mouth of Cutshin. My great grandfather BEGLEY came from Ireland. He was a weaver by trade. He came with my grandfather and is buried on Cutshin. He had a by-word, “damn-an-it”. He spoke broken English. My grandmother was Minnie SIZEMORE. She was a daughter of “Old George of All” SIZEMORE, who came with my grandfather, William BEGLEY, from Hawkins Co., TN. He had children as follows; Henry, John, Ned, and George; Minnie (William BEGLEY), Rhoda ROBERTS), Ruth (John JONES), and Susan BOLLING.
“Old George of All” was a hairy man and a prize fighter. He wounded William TWITTY in a fight, so that he died. SIZEMORE nursed TWITTY and would cry and tell him he had nothing against him, asking him to fight him again if he got well. SIZEMORE is a Cherokee Indian name. He is said to be half or more Indian. The SIZEMORES are very numerous in the mountains. The SIZEMORES settled first on Middle Fork, they went to Clay, Floyd, and other counties.

My favorite story of George All Sizemore B:1755 D:1822:
George All’s Story
Added by DennisBegley551 on 12 Aug 2007 Ancestry. com

In the meantime, in another part of the area, the Cherokee
Indians had also captured a white girl. One Indian Chief,
seeing her beauty, became desirous of possessing her for his
own, and took her into his teepee. However his love was
short-lived, for the girl’s brothers made pursuit and brought
the girl back to her own people, but under her heart she carried
the child of the Indian Chief. This child was given the name
George All Sizemore. (Information from Pleasie Woods
(deceased).
When George All grew to manhood he married the Indian girl whom
Mr. Cornett had raised. George All and Agnes Shepherd thus
became the progenitors of the Leslie County Sizemores. Their
children were Henry, John, Edward, George, Sally Ann (who
married Eli Couch)Minerva ‘Winnie” who married William “Bill”
Begley, Rhoda who married a Roberts and a Wilder, Ruth who
married John Jones, and Susan who married a Bowling.”
According to the “Clay County Ancestral News” 6-1991, in an
article from the John J. Dickey Diary, an interview with Felix
T. Begley, Bull Creek, Kentucky, March 27, 1898: “Old George
“All” was a hairy man and a prize fighter. He wounded William
Twitty in a fight, so that he died.
Sizemore nursed Twitty and would cry and tell him he had nothing
against him. All he asked of him was to fight him again if he
got well. Sizemore is a Cherokee Indian name. He is said to be
half or more Indian.
The Sizemore are very numerous in the mountains. The Sizemores
settled first on Middle Fork, then went to Clay, Floyd, and
other counties. (Polly North, 85 years old, whose mother was
Rhoda Sizemore, says they came from New River).
