Re: Sizemore Sisemore Loyd Reunion

My husband & I recently visited at the Southern Oregon Historical Society. Did not glean too much info regarding John Sisemore. We did find that there was an Adam Sisemore in the Southern Oregon area at the same time and believe that he & John came out first to CA together & then on to Oregon. Adam made a few detours before settling in Jackson County, Oregon area - to Idaho, the Bend area & eventually to the Sams Valley area of So. Oregon. The article that I found on Adam showed that he was born in Harlan Co., KY. We had always thought John was born in Clay Co., KY, but this info could be in error. Adam had a family, but just who it was comprised of other than his wife, Nancy, we don't know. Adam is buried in the Sams Valley area. We're planning on a trip to the Jackson County area to locate graves in cemeteries. I received an e-mail from another lady who told me that the Sizemore-Sisemore people were all one & the same - that when the Hessian soldiers came to America to help fight in the war, it was easier to say SiZemore that SiSemore. Any help or info that you might give would be appreciated. Thank you
