I recently asked someone to check on a Sellers marriage for me in Henry Co,
AL, and that sent me a whole list of them. I'm posting them here, along
with
some additional information. All of it is followed with a question that
proposes something of a long shot. Please hang on until the end.

(1) Belinda Sellers (whose name appears at times as Melinda in various
documents) was the daughter of Benjamin B Sellers. Thomas Collins was her
first husband. She would remarry in 1876 to Zachary Pridgeon, my second
great granduncle.
(2) Eliza (Jane) Sellers was probably the daughter of Joseph W. Sellers.
(3) I'm not sure whose daughter she was, but Elizabeth, like Belinda
Sellers, may have been widowed during the war. In 1880, she appears in the
household of Thomas M Sellers with two apparent sons, John and James.
(4) Lucinda Sellers is probably the daughter of Joseph W. Sellers.
(5) The Missouri Sellers who married Reuben Harrison could have been the
daughter of either Samuel Wright Sellers or Thomas M Sellers.
(6) The Missouri Sellers who married Leroy Olive was probably the daughter
of Rufus Daniel Sellers. Leroy Olive was a widower. His first wife was
Savannah Temperance Jones, the niece, by marriage of Rufus Daniel and his
brother, Samuel, and my 2nd great grandaunt.
(7) R(ufus) D(aniel) Sellers took Venette Pritchett as his second wife. His
first was Amanda Caroline Jones, the daughter of Elbert and Susannah Jones
of Walton Co, FL. Susannah and her younger children are shown in the
household in 1850. Rufus' brother, Samuel, married Amanda's sister,
Susannah
Temperance. A third sister, Nancy, married my third great grandfather,
Bethel Jones.
(8) Ashley B Sellers was of the son of Rufus Daniel.
(9) Austin J Sellers was the son of Benjamin B.
(10) B(enjamin?) F Sellers may have been the son of Thomas M. or Samuel
Wright Sellers.
(11) Calten Sellers was the son of Benjamin B.
(12) Thomas M. Sellers - as Marie informed me recently, the Thomas of Henry
Co was probably the Thomas M of the 1850 Pike Co census where he was shown
with wife Maria (Moriah Jane Sellers, his thrid cousin according to other
researchers) and children Frances, Richard, and Missouri.
In the 1860 census of Henry Co, Thomas is shown with an apparent wife,
Eliza, his children J. R(ichard?) E., Missouri, and B.F. Moriah Sellers
must
have died, possibly giving birth to her last child, the B. F. of the 1860
census. (Confusingly, two children of the same names and ages are shown on
the previous page with a Samuel Sellers, age 66 - Samuel Wright, I assume.)
Also in the house of Thomas Sellers are three children by the names of
Amanda, Leonidas, and Nancy J. Cohron.
I'm certain the Eliza here is my GG-grandmother, Eliza Cohron. The widow of
William Leonidas Cohron, she appeared in the 1850 census of Chambers Co,
AL,
having come there from Troup Co, GA after 1840.
I don't know what became of Eliza after 1860. According to one family Bible
record, she lived until 1903. Assuming she and Thomas M were married (and
I've found no record thus far), they must have divorced before Thomas'
third
marriage in 1867 to Frances Jones. On the other hand, if she lived that
long, what did become of her?
Someone has suggested to me that Eliza was not Thomas' wife, but his
sister,
and that I should be looking for a Cohron-Sellers marriage in Georgia. I
haven't found such as yet.
However, I did find a Hiram Sellers listed in the 1830 census of Troup Co,
GA, where Eliza was living with her husband and first child in 1840.
So, finally to get to the point, does anyone know anything of this Hiram
Sellers. I've not a chance to take a look at that 1830 census to see if he
was married with a daughter born about 1820 - Eliza's approximate birth
year.
Any clue would be welcome.
Thanks,
Ron Hall
