These are the families that I am searching for in Greene County: McGraw,
Mobley, Free, Sellers, Drummond, Legg
 

I especially am interested in knowing more about Elijah S. Sellers
born: August 20, 1820, SC died: March 26, 1899, Greene Co., GA
Buried: Beulah Bapt Church Cemetery, Greene Co., AL
He married: Nancy Jane Drummond
He was living in household of Matthew Pickett Smith & Rianah Legg Smith when
they moved to AL in 1827.
Enlisted  in Army, Co. B, 36 Regiment of Alabama Volunteers.

I am searching the following families in the area of Greene Co. that is now
Hale Co. : True, Logan, Wright, Williams, Harris.

The McGraws, Mobleys and Frees migrated from Fairfield Co., SC. The Trues.
Logans and Wrights came from Abbeville, SC. Elijah Sellers came from
Chesterfied Co., SC. The Drummonds from Spartenburg, SC. The Leggs from VA
by way of SC. The Harris and Williams families came from Wake Co., NC.

 Looking for birthplace in S.C.  Elijah S. Sellers, born in 1820, came to Greene Co. Alabama in 1827 in the family of Matthew Pickett Smith, a Baptist preacher.  They settled in the Union area. It is thought he came from Chersterfield Co., but I have been unable to verify this.  Any information will be appreciatedl

CURTIS, thanks. have seen these remarks mentioned also. But, NO ONE shows any documentation!  How did we prove he came with the Matthew Pickett SMITH family ? and How did we prove he was born in SC when his census records show AL?

He is listed in Civil War. perhaps info from them files? keep us updated. Where did SMITH come from and where in 1820? thanks for sharing. marie, iowa 

===========

,  I received your email of Dec. 19 regarding Elijah S. Sellers.

    While looking through the 1900 and 1910 census tracks of Greene County, Alabama I found a Nancy Jane Sellers living with her son-in-laws family by the name  of Charlie Lamb.  Charlie's wife was Mary Sellers( I'm sure she is the twin sister to Martha Elizabeth, born in 1858)  The 1900 census form calls for the birth place of each persons father and Mary stated that her father was born in NC.  Nancy stated her mother was born in TN.

    If I can determine which city in NC I may narrow down where he was born.  I am in contact with a Stephanie  True Moss in GA who's  gggmother was the twin Martha Elizabeth who married a  Stephen F. Hale McGraw and is buried in Beulah Baptist Cemetery in Greene County.

    You did not say in your e-mail in December, but what you Sellers connection?

                                                                                         Regards,  Curtis Sellers

===========

 CURTIS, thanks.

Please send us the extractions from 1900 and 1910 and ANYONE living with or next.

 The 1850/1880 show him born  1820 AL

he was in CW in AL?

IF he drew pension = YOU need the pension file.

 

IF he was with the SMITH family in 1827 ,  YOU could find out where they were in 1830/40 . Believe he was a Preacher/Rev and could have taken child in OR related to family?

 

POST/SEND any documents you collect.

Thanks, marie, iowa
