I believe you'll find the JAMES Sizemore, referred to in the site you gave, is in actuality the JOHN A. Sizemore whose pedigree can be found on our Sizemore Surname Y-DNA project site. I do think the compiler of this material should have known the name of his DNA participant.
When visiting our DNA results page & pedigreeshttp://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~craingen/DNAindex.h...
you'll also see we have one other participant (#7649) that traces his line back to the same George Sizemore of Ashe Co., NC.
The majority of our participants, with the NA markers, trace their lines back to the KY Sizemores with George "All" Sizemore being the earliest documented ancestor of the group.
In addition there is another documented George Sizemore line of SC that also has the NA markers. All of these men were born in the same time period.
There are numerous Sizemore lines that have not yet been tested and we feel we have just scratched the surface.
As for the William Ephraim Sizemore & Winifred Green, I posted the following to the Sizemore-L on 9/12/03.
I did finally see the site but (as I suspected) he has just collected undocumented info from other sites like his. As I said before, this George Sizemore and his wife Lydia (Sizemore) Sizemore are ancestors of Jack Goins. From that point down, it does appear to be your line so PLEASE contact Jack for additional information. His documentaion shows Lydia *was not an adopted Hagey*. I'm sure he'd be happy to discuss the question concerning your Thomas' middle name. I can tell you that nothing is known about the parentage of this George, and there is nothing in any of the records that name the parents, wife, or children of the earliest Edward.
I have been explaining the mistakes in this material since going online in 1997 but will try one more time.
My *records* start in 1619, but the earliest record for the William Sizemore Mr. Allen is apparently talking about is found in VIRGINIA COLONIAL ABSTRACTS VOL. XXI HENRICO CO., VA- SOUTHSIDE, by Beverley Fleet,
P.2- PREFACE: . . . The records are of persons who lived in Henrico on the south side of James River. This became Chesterfield County in 1749. And also records of persons who had properties or business in that section.

I have a lot of additional info concerning the below mentioned Margery prior to the move to present Halifax Co., VA where we see the others showing up in the land entry book. I probably should also say that I *do not* believe Margery is our female connection to the male NA DNA results we have. I think that occurred much earlier.
In 1741 WILLIAM had land surveyed in present Halifax Co., VA.
In 1743 MARGERY (transcribed as Mary but additional records show it was probably an abbrivation of Marg.) has a survey entry.
Also in 1743 HENRY & EPHRAIM have surveys and since this is the first mention of them they too would have to be 21 so born by 1722 or earlier.
In 1744 WILLIAM sold the Amelia Co. land and he is said to be "of Brunswick Co., VA" (the parent Co. of present Halifax).
In 1746 EDWARD & JAMES are mentioned for the first time in land surveys so born by 1725 or earlier.
1747/16/Mar. ERB p.49 (16 March 1746.7 Survd P.F.) GEORGE SIZEMORE enters 200 Acres of Land on the Lower side Line of his Mother MARY [MARGERY] SIZEMORE's Survey on Wynne's Cr. beginning at her lower Corner W.O. thence up and down.
GEORGE was born by 1726 or earlier.
BIRTHS FROM THE BRISTOL PARISH REGISTER OF HENRICO, PRINCE GEORGE AND DINWIDDIE COUNTIES, VIRGINIA, 1720-1798, by Chamberlayne shows:
P.307 Dorcus, daughter of Henry & Elizabeth Green born 27 Sept. 1726
P.308 WINIFRED, daughter of Henry & Elizabeth Green born 17 Mar. 1731
P.306 Mary, daughter of John & Abigale Green born 9 Aug. 1722
P.308 Jemima, daughter of John & Abigale Green born 28 July 1731
I think we can all do the math on this!
Elliott- EARLY WILLS 1746-1765 LUNENBURG CO., VA, p.9, DB.1 p.477:
1748/15/Oct.- Will of HENRY GREEN, SR., rec. before June 5 1749.
Eldest son JOHN- plantation where he (John) now lives plus 157A more.
Second son HENRY- 157A to include the plantation where ABIGAIL GREEN, relict of my brother JOHN GREEN, now lives.
Third son STEPHEN- 157A to include an old field whereon John RUSSELL formerly lived.
Fourth son FREDERICK- 157A to be laid off at the lower end of the tract I now hold.
Land to wife ELIZABETH, during her widowhood, remaining 157A including plantation where I now live.
In case my wife die or marry, said tract is to go to youngest son RICHARD.
Personal estate to remain in hands of my wife and, at her death or marriage, to be divided among all children excluding sons John and Henry and daughter DORCAS who are sufficiently provided for.
Exec: Brother-in-law RICHARD GRIFFIN, son John GREEN
Wit: EDWARD SIZEMORE, WILLIAM JACKSON, Thomas GREENWOOD.
Btw, Brother-in-law *does not* necessarily mean his wife's brother. It could also mean a husband of a sister or a half brother by different fathers!
[I neglected to include the possibility of a step-brother as well. JK]
Winifred would have been 17 yrs. old when Henry wrote his will and I believe she has already died. Henry names everyone, including his brother's wife, I seriously doubt he would have excluded Winifred if she was alive.
Hope this clears things up,
