  • "Bonnie Mitchell McSwain was only in my McSwain line because she wasmarried to William Boyd, but I thought she looked like a little Indiangirl in the one pic.  Most people who see it usually agree.  Hermother's maiden name was Sizemore and her ancestors were said to havebeen with the Cherokee."

    It is unknown what the middle intial here might mean.  There is noother record of an additional name starting with a C, so this must bean enumerator error.  Her full name was Frances (and found sometimesspelled Francis in records) Clercie Sizemore.  This 1910 census is thelast record found for Clarcie's husband Hiram.  In trhe 1930 CharlotteCity Directory, she is reported as a widow.  No death or burialinformation has been found by family members and researchersreconstructing this family's story.
