Cherokee Indians had captured a white girl. While she was in their camp t he Chief fell in love with her. He made her his wife. Not long after, h er brothers snuck into that camp and took her back. She was pregnant at t he time. Her son was named George All Sizemore. Goldenhawk was a memb er of the Whitetop Laurel Band and was the Chief of the Prestonburg Ky. tribe. There are no portraits of Golden Hawk but he was a big man with gold colored hair. It has been said that he "was one of the ugliest men that ever was". Golden Hawk started dating Sally Anderson. Her two brothers objected to her dating an Indian so they tried to kill him. He fought well and took her to Ky. The records do not show what he did for a living but he was a land owner. He also maintained several families as his own. Go lden Hawk was indicted for bigamy in Floyd Co. Ky. The minutes from the he aring indicate that the Judge said, "Mr. Sizemore, I understand you have a bout 50 children." Golden Hawk replied, "I guess you are right. But Judg e, if I'd been half as pretty a man as you are, I'd had more than that." 1 860 Magoffin Census - Age 77 Born N.C. and living alone.
