In researching my Gaddy genealogy, I find Thomas Gaddy, b. abt. 1789 in NC.
He m. Mary Sellers, daughter of Hardy Sellers, abt. 1813 in NC. She was b. in
NC and died in GA. Don't know who her mother was.

Thomas and Mary were the parents of my great grandfather, George Washington
Gaddy, b. 1827 in Anson Co. NC. He was killed at the battle of Antietam Sept.
17, 1862. He had m. Emily Ridling and were living in GA.

=========

AGROE, Thanks for sharing Mary SELLERS GADDY'S son with us. If you have proven other of her children and who married and went to, we would appreciate. I believe I see them in 1830/40/50/ Dekalb Co., Ga
Are they on the 1820 Chesterfield Co, SC census?

I don't believe we have any proof on Hardys first/other wife . There may be deeds out there that possibly would show wife, but, we don't have posted. Are these available and we haven't searched or shared?

It appears we don't have a SELLERS will before Hardys in 1834?
And yet we appear to have a WM SELLERS here that I don't know where went. And maybe a John SELLERS, but, he could be the son who went to TN. AND a JACOB SELLERS in 1755 JOHNSTON CO,, NC = went where? Altho, we don't appear to have living kids named after him?

IF , you have ANY documents, esp land, please share.
Thank you for sharing SELLERS families.

I have just started on the Sellers family as a primary search.

Had the name from the Gaddy source and in looking through what I have on the Sellers I'm amazed at what I have!!! Goes back to !999.

Send me your snail mail address and I will be happy to send you a copy of what I have. I got a computer only to do genealogy research and have never been interested in learning how to do other things. But I have really been successful at research.

Have several names, some back to Germany, England, Scotland, Palatines, etc.

Do you have any Information on a Frank or Lord family? I'm as far back as a Jacob Frank, but nothing on the Lords.

Hope I have some things you need.

Agnes

AGNES, thanks.
much prettier than AGROE! my great aunt was Agnes Riley Sellers! (Decatur Co., Ia) so I love the name!

We need Mary Sellers Gaddy's children mainly.
and perhaps a time line on Thomas Gaddy, her husband.

I don't get snail mail posted very well and we need to share it with our SELLERS members that share their documents on these families.
ANYTHING pertaining to these families that you have on the computer that you can send would be appreciated.

WE have a BIG gap in 1750/1790 JOHNSTON CO, NC area.

BUT, we also need the younger kids families shared.

I Only do SELLERS and their kids.
WE use a SELLERS web page to connect names to Counties/States which helps others find your family also.

Several years ago I would go to the library with a friend who was doing serious genealogy research.

Each time, I would look for history books from places that I knew the Gaddys were living in. One that was a real find:!! A HISTORY of MARION COUNTY, South Carolina. From Its Earliest Times to the Present. 1901. By W.W. Sellers, Esq., of the Marion Bar. printed Columbia, S.C. The R. L. Bryan Company, 1902.

He died at the age of 84 before finishing the book. I read only things I could find about the Gaddys and that was a paragraph about the Ithamar and William Gaddy families. At the time I didn't know that William was my ancestor.

This was a well worn book in the SC genealogy section in Gulfport, MS. They have since moved that to the Biloxi library and I haven't tried to find it there. Don't know whether or not it had a lot about the Sellers family. Some place I read that it was reprinted by the Marion Co. library about 1984. Don't know if you are interested or may already have all this info. I printed pages that had any refernce to a Gaddy who served in a military service. There were several. Don't see any Sellers listed, but this is just a short list.

Will send more by mail later when I find something I don't think you may have. I don't have anyone beyond Hardy Gaddy who m. Mary Sellars. Do know that Mary married again after Hardy died. I will send the Gaddy family history soon.

Good Hunting!
Agnes


=====================

AGNES, thanks.
We/I don't have the GADDY info extracted. I see where ITHAMER GADDY'S son or grandson? HARDY married Winnie Humphrey of Robeson Co, NC.
I don't have ages posted with his kids' names! so kinda hard to follow/prove kids.

Your/our Hardy Gaddy/Mary Sellers connects to this family?
We must Prove these families ourselves, as there are errors, sometimes in histories, etc.

keep us informed.
thanks, marie, iowa

Will try to send the message. The Gaddy family should go to the message board.

One particular interesting message is:

http://genforum.genealogy.com/gaddy/messages/711.html

From there you can go to other messages.

This is how I learned about my family. Met people online that had the info I needed to finish out my ancestors.

Happy Hunting

Hope to get the Gaddy family off to you soon. This hurricane had really set
everyone completely off schedule. Have your envelope ready but couldn't
remember where I stored the copies. I just hurriedly stuck everything in waterproof
boxes. Now it is just finding the right one.

Thanks,
Agnes.

AGNES, thank you for your chart on THOMAS GADDY and MARY SELLERS kids.
I will try and make extractions to your info.

YOU have this on computer? you could just copy/paste the Genealogy Report to me and I could put with your info?
OR you prefer Not to?
OKAY, will use extractions or make a chart.

I don't believe Hardy Sellers is proven , but, he was born 1757 JOHNSTON CO, NC where we have these SELLERS living =

The records I sent are a compilation of many hours of research and numerous visits to message boards. I am not a computer expert. I will soon be 81 years old and wanted a computer just to research my genealogy. I may have it on my computer but wouldn't know how to send it. Research is addictive but have enjoyed every minute of it.

If you can copy what I sent and send it to others I'm sure it will be all right, because It came from on-line and a book that was published which I use as a reference.

I even have one that site that traces the Gaddy family back to the King of Scotland. Will give a list of places to visit if any one is interested.

The first Hardy Sellers I have found is the one mentioned in generation 5 in notes for Mary Sellers. Have been unable to find anything about him in my searches. Would like to have more if available.

I have some generations back to their coming to America. Some of the names are Bost/Bast, Ridling/Reidling, Lord, and Frank. There is a Shelton in there but haven't checked that one out.

If anyone wants addresses to message boards I can send those. I have a lot of them, fun to read but it is also a great place to find information. You may give my E-mail address to people who are researching these names if you want to.

I'm printing everything so I can assemble them into families, want to give them to grandkids, nieces, nephews, as I have only one sister alive. I still stay active, or did before Katrina. Now I can't stand to go out unless I have to because of the devastation. Nearly all the houses around me were under water. It was up into my yard but not in my house. I was so fortunate.

AGNES, thank you .

CONGRATULATIONS on your computer work! lots better than our files/boxes, huh?

I hand copied the kids of Thomas Gaddy 1789? and Mary SELLERS the last few days and will try and copy to your info. so our SELLERS, etc can use/see.
AND these are the kids most of our SELLERS would be interested in AND THOMAS GADDY'S parents

I see Many/Most list the WM GADDY 1767 as his father, I did NOT see a source/document to this? DO you have?
and they list his father as THOMAS GADDY 1753 = kinda young, huh? Is there a document on this father?
Did someone miss a generation here OR some document to prove?
This is NOT my primary concern, but, should be rechecked?


PLEASE understand my questions AND thank you for sharing SELLERS. = our FEMALE SELLERS children

With Christmas and still working on storm things, I am just now trying to catch up on my E-mail. Will try to answer some questions you have asked. Hope I cover all but if I don't, just let me know.

Gaddy info was from several sources. The book "That Our Names Be Written- A Gaddy Family History" by William and Corrine Gaddy was mostly used as a reference for my other research.. All copies have been sold, and he passed away just shortly after I started corresponding with him. I felt like I had lost an older brother as I had one who resembled his picture and had passed on.

I have copies of wills from Thomas Gaddy, Sr. and Jr. Will list a web site you can go to read them, and 2 by a Nancy Gaddy which mentions Hardy Sellers as a witness or something. I have read and re-read them many times but haven't put everything in order. I have been accepted into the DAR through Thomas and daughter Jane.

www.UsGenWeb.com
Click on states, then North Carolina, then a map will come up. Click on Anson County, go through garden gate, click on Anson County records, click on wills, and go down to Gaddy. There you are. Don't ask me how I found this. Just luck, it happens all the time when you do research. Will send other things later as they come to mind.

I have spent a lot of time on message boards. That is where I found so much from James and David Gaddy. Have not corresponded with them in several years and James has changed his address from the one I did use. Think it is now......jhgaddy@bellsouth.net
He was more interested in the Sellars family than I was at the time.

As to the birth date of Thomas Gaddy, Jr., I know that is wrong but no one has come up with the exact date. Know it's wrong because he would have been only 11 years old when he married Millicent, and he had been married twice before. Even the editors of the book could not solve it. If you can find it, a lot of people will be indebted to you.

If you have any problem with the wills, I have them printed out. Still don't know how to add them to E-mails.Would rather spend my time surfing the internet.

Enjoy.
Agnes
