BEFORE 1868 GENEVA CO was the land in DALE, HENRY, COFFEE CO, AL
(Coffee County was created December 29, 1841 from Dale County.)
It was unclear to the Territory of Florida whether its northern border would be the 31st parallel or Ellicott's Line until 1848, when the States of Alabama and Florida agreed to use Ellicott's Line as the border. However, by then surveyors from Florida had already surveyed up to the 31st parallel (St. Stephens Base Line).

        I found a obit in the 1-20-1977 in the Panama City Fla Newsherald
of a
JESSE GREEN SELLERS who died in Panama City and was buried in the
TABERNACLE CHURCH CEMETERY in GENEVA COUNTY, ALA.. There were 2 brothers
listed surviving A Rev. E. O. SELLERS,Tallahassee, Fla. and Rev A. O.
SELLERS, Lakeland, Fla.. The E. O. I believe to be ERNEST OSCAR SELLERS B.
12-6-1893 in GENEVA COUNTY, ALA.
        The Rev. A. O. SELLERS in Lakeland I haven't a clue so if anybody
can fill
in infomation, it would be deeply appreciated

        P.S. I have several name along that line



I don't recognize the SELLERS you were looking for but I do have one that
is a mystery to me.

I have a Susan E. SELLERS ( b.01 May 1857, d. Aug 1930, buried at Burns
Cemetery, Slocomb, Geneva Co, AL).  Susan married George Wesley BURNS ( b.
07 Sep 1851,FL;  d. 01 May 1908,Burns Cemetery, Slocomb).  They had Shines
Brinkley BURNS (b. 23 Mar 1880, d. 08 Dec 1946, Burns Cemetery, Slocomb)
 

I do know that George Wesley BURNS father was James Charles Burns(b. 17 Feb
1825, FL; d. 16 Feb 1901) and Rebecca Ann Hamilton(b. 06 Sep 1833, AL; f.
22
Sep, 1917).  They are also buried at Burns Cemetery, Slocomb.

Sure could use any help in finding this family.

Does anyone recognize any of these Sellers.  Trying to see if they tie into
David Ashley Sellars(b. 1826, lived in Washington Co., FL & then Dale Co.,
AL), son of William Sellers
(b. 1774)& Nany MOYE b. 1771

1.  Joe Earl Sellers, Sr. was born 22 June 1879, and died 15 January 1950
buried in  Pleasant Hill Baptist Cemetery, Slocomb, Geneva Co., AL.  He
married Maude Weeks.  She was born 18 February 1884, and died 12 January
1969 in Pleasant Hill Baptist Cemetery, Slocomb, Geneva Co., AL.

Joe Earl Sellers is buried more towards the center of the cemetery, while
all these other Sellers are buried in the most southeastern corner, in a
tight group & are all connecting, closest to the church and the road.   The
church is to the south of this group, and the road is right in front of
this
group, east of  the cemetery. You can spot this group from the road. I was
told Joe Earl Sellers, Sr. is connected to this group, but don't know how.
Sure could use the help in figuring this one out.  Thanks.

I am wondering if J.J. Sellers, Sr. b. 01 Jan 1846, d. 18 Feb 1910 & Mary
Jane are Joseph Earl Sellers, Sr.'s parents.

  Their plots are in a tight group and all connecting.
