Teresa,
I am a Sizemore by marriage and my husbands family is from Clay Co. From what I have heard about the Sizemore's yes I can see a woman Sizemore being sheriff. My husband is the son of George and Leita Sizemore (nee Burns). You wouldn't have any information on George's father. My husband never knew who he was.

Teresa,
I asked my husband about the woman sheriff, he knew of her but did not know her name. He said
she was related to him somehow as was a Cradad Sizemore, who also ran for an office in Clay Cty.
Sorry I couldn't of been more help.

My grandfather was Johnnie Sizemore and my Grandmother was Zora Roberts Sizemore. We lived in Leslie County and Clay County. I have just started my search for ancestors. I know that my grandfather had a brother named Rob Sizemore. Anyway, I have never heard about the Sizemore Feud. Can you tell me about it.
