Searching for Martha Fields and Edward Sizemore

Journal by Dalesmom

Sorry but this may take a moment. Martha (Mahala) Fields b.abt 1782 in NC was married (Indian Ceremony) to a Ed Sizemonre b.1755 in VA. Martha and Ed had one son named Isaac Newton Fields b.Feb. 14,1808 in TN. I have heard and read so many tales on these two I don't really know what to believe. Ed Sizemore was reported as Native American but nobody has proof of this. The story is: Ed "married" Martha (Mahala) took her to TN, built a cabin, dug a well, and left her with another "indian" and disappeared. The "indian" friend went to look for Ed and came back and told her Ed was dead. She raised Isaac herself and never remarried that I can find. Census shows her living with son and daughter-in-law in KY. Ed was not dead and ended up marring another woman, and having at least 6 more children (may be more). I was wondering if anyone had info on Martha or Ed. Martha's father is suppose to be Davis Fields from NC and moved his family to KY after his other daughter was threatened with stoning. Anyone have anything on these folks. Thanks

Any idea on what the other wife's name was? I have an Ed Sizemore but don't know if it's the right one.

Since posting this, I have learned he was already married to a Bowlings (Last name)woman and had quite a few kids before and after Marthas son Isaac Newton. I think this is one of those unknown mysteries that may never be solved. I also found out that there is no proof that Ed Sizemore was native at all. He in fact owned alot of land and that was not heard of from native Americans at that time. Oh well. His other wife's name also could have been spelled Bolling, or Bouling. I can't find where I put her first name or the children they had. I will try to look that up and put it on here also. Thanks, Ruth
