A query about Abigail Sizemore (daughter of Henry Tal and Abigail)

Henry Tal Sizemore and Abigail

I've been searching the roots of Abigail which married Henry Colvin and is listed on the 1850 Leon County Florida census.Henry age 36, Abigail age 20, James T. age 5, Matilda S.age 2. I begin serching this family when a schoolmate Steve Emmons and I were discusing the possibility of being kin through John Hartley Boutwell which was one of the children of Matida Savannah Colvin and William Robert Boutwell. John Hartley Boutwell married Martha Drucella(Mattie)Manning which was the sister of Sarah Nancy(Nannie)Manning my Grandmother.Steve's ancestor was William Lafayette Boutwell the brother of John Hartley Boutwell and not kin to the Manning Family but he ask me to help solidify his native American roots.Matilda's mother Abigail has been known to this family as maiden name Sizemore and was said to be Seminole Indian.People have a tendancy to relate all Native American people in Florida to the Seminole tribe but Abigail and Henry stated they were born in Georgia on the 1850 Leon County Florida Census.I found listings that had Abigail as the daughter of Henry (Tal) Sizemore and Abigail from Gwinett County Georgia but this is not likely bacause henry's death was recorded in 1829 and Abigail was reported as a Widow on the 1827 Ga. Land Lottery.On the 1830 Gwinett County Georgia Census Thomas Sizemore is found living next door to Abigail Sizemore and James Sizemore is about 4 families away.Both show a female 0 to 5 listed.In 1840 James and Jane had no male children and 4 females.On the 1850 Census their oldest female listed was Matilda at 19 years old which means she was born in 1831 and 1 female from the 1840 Census is not in the household.I believe this was Abigail that married Henry Colvin because she named her first son James and she would have been the first daughter of James and Jane and named after her Grandmother Abigail Sizemore. If anyone can help us document this we would really be thankfull.I also have Native American Blood from my Great Grandmother Rachael Mathida Keebler the daughter of John J. Keebler of Butler County Alabama which was the son of Peter Keebler from North Carolina.I find the Keebler name related to the Cherokees of the southwestern U.S. where they applied for Indian land grants.Any info on the Keeblers would also be appreciated.Heres a link to the Matida Savannah Colvin and William Robert Boutwell family with Pictures.
thanks, Freddy [1]
