EVILSIZER FAMILY IN AMERICA

Most of the EVILSIZER/EVILSIZOR families in America today descend from 2 men, one known as Jakob Uebelschausser and the other from probably a brother, name not known.Many variants evolved including Evelsizer and Evensizer.
Many folks have been researching this line for many years and have been unable to establish the identity of Ol’ Jakob.
I addressed many of the issues concerning Ol’ Jakob in my published book entitled “Evil In The Barn” in 2000. However, my research over the internet continues to disclose many errors in our heritage.
It was thought at one time (and the rumor is alive and well today), that Jacob was a Hessian Soldier. I highly suspect my loving father is perhaps the one who initiated that theory as being a fact. There is plenty of evidence to establish the rumor, but herein lies the problem. Evidence supports that he (the Hessian Soldier) was , captured, and returned to Germany where he married and had children.

FACT, FICTION, TRUTH, THEORIES and TALL TALES
Many facts, fiction, truth, theories and tall tales have emerged through the years about who Ol' Jakob really was. Any coat of arms you find for this family is only a suggestion and cannot be confirmed. No known coat of arms has ever been exposed. I would think there would not be one considering this family was only a group of poor dirt farmers. Explore our history page for a list of all of the legends.
