A. J. Rogers, witness for Samuel B. Sizemore; after being first duly sworn, deposes and says:
I have known Samuel B. Sizemore all my life. He is part Cherokee Indian from what his father said about him. His father claimed to be part Cherokee Indian. I knew his father all my life. I knew him ever since I can remember; he was the first man I ever heard preach. He told me he was part Cherokee Indian. He was a recognized white man. He said he came from East Tennessee. I knew nothing about his mother. I do not think he ever tried to get any Indian money from the government.
