We are searching for any information on a Monroe Sellers. He is
suppose to have a brother named John. Monroe was in the state of Alabama
around Coffee County in 1900.his spouse was Ida Spears. His first son
George Washington (BUDDY) Sellers was born in or near Samson Alabama in
1900. The second son, Jay (JD) Sellers was born 1903 in or near Samson
Alabama. His third son, my grandfather, James Hollis Sellers was born
1907.It is said that they had a daughter, Ethel Sellers, no further
information. It is said that Monroe died in 1908 from falling in a well
that was being dug.I have searched what on line census I could find and
cemetery records for Piney Grove where it is said he was buried. I have
come up with NOTHING. ANY information or suggestions would be greatly

IDA SELLERS in 1910 Coffee Co to an EARNEST HALL? - Ring a bell?) marie,

THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The James M. Sellers married to Ida is the one I have been SEARCHING for.
is my great grandfather and we know Very little of him. James died in 1908
and Ida did marry an Earnest Hall. Where did you get this info? I have
SO MANY web sights that I can't remember when I visited which one last.
I can't tell you how much this means to me. I guess my grandfather James
Hollis Sellers didn't fall out of the sky after all. Please any other info
you have on either James Monroe or Ida would be greatly appreciated. Ida's
grand daughter from her marriage to Earnest is looking for info to so I
pass this on to her.
Again thank you so very much!!!

ALICE - Great - USGENWEB is a good place to find county/state info - when
know the location of your family. You can search their info on line and
they do
some lookups, which helps you get started in right direction.  He may have
obit also, which gives family members sometimes and where they went.
You may be able to find some cousins or other info on our Coffee and Geneva
AL pages =
click on the colored names and use your back buttom to surf around. Best
and if you find new SELLERS info, please share a copy with us. marie, iowa

My grandfather, James Hollis Sellers b;1905 Coffee County, son of James
Monroe, was about two when Monroe died so very little is known about this
Monroe it is said was a very mean man and died when he fell into a well. It
is said that he was pushed into the well by a relative of someone he was
supposed to have killed?
I have searched what records and census I can find on the Internet but have
come up with nothing.
A distant cousin has said that James Monroe is buried in Piney Grove
and William H.H. Sellers is buried at Friendship Baptist Church cemetery.
I have looked at the fills of Piney Grove off the Coffee County sight and
cannot find him.
ANY information or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you,

ALICE - will send thru our SELLERS group. CYNTHIA has searched these
families and
IF she has the census reading for:
And She May know this family?
and perhaps, we could see if your Wm H.H. SELLERS born ca 1845? is on
There is a possibility he was only 25 in the 1880 census? and misread?

OTHERWISE, You could ask for a look up on those county/state pages,till we

Hi to all,
I am new at this sight and I hope you will bear with me while I try to
out my Sellers connections.
My grandfather was James Hollis Sellers born 1907 Coffee County
My great grandfather was James Monroe Sellers born 1875-1876 Coffee County.
My great great grandfather was William H.H. Sellers born 1845-1846 in Pike
County (we believe).
Here is where I have a problem, in the 1860 Pike County census it list a
Phillip W. Sellers, spouse Lidia with children
William 14
George W. 11
Theophilus R. 8
On the 1870 Pike county census it list Peter W. Sellers, with wife Lidia
William 25
Rebecca 18 (I believe Rebecca is Williams wife)
Alphie 21
As Phillip and Peter both hail from South Carolina and are both the same
and both have wives named Lidia , are these two people the same person?
Any information or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for your time,
Alice Curt

While at the library yesterday I was looking through the Pike County Census
for the years 1860 and 1870. I copied ALL the Sellers that was listed for
those years. There were alot. If anyone would like a copy I would be more
than happy to get them a copy.
I will be going back to the library next Monday or Tuesday so if someone
needs something looked up I would be happy to do so.  They have census for
Georgia, Alabama, and some Fla. I live in Alabama and it takes about an
to get there, so I don't go all the time.
I hope this information will be helpfull to someone and might even help me
find out who William H.H. Sellers parents were.

Alice Curt

Well all I am truly confused now. I think that my great great
grandfather William H.H. Sellers was born in Alabama, or so it says on the
1880 Coffee County Alabama census. While finally getting to talk to my two
oldest Aunts and both were having a GOOD day, they both said that William's
parents were from Texas, not very nice people and had something to do with
the James gang(?) I know that William is buried at Friendship Baptist
Church Cemetery in Coffee County Alabama,his stone reads H.H. Sellers, I
know that his spouse was Rebecca Chambers, I know they had eight children
James Monroe 1876,Harriett Anna Elizabeth 1878,Callie G. 1880, William
Frank 1885, Will 1888,Lacy A. 1889, John Washington 1893, David Percy 1894,
all the childre were born in Victoria, Coffee County, Alabama, and that
William died in 1900.William was born in 1845-46, Pike County I think!

ALICE, I believe you/we have connect to 1900? AL? - perhaps some of the Other Kids went on to TX and that is her father and perhaps Brother to ?
USE Dates with their NAMES, helps separate families and kids
TRY a Chart = Names, Dates, Places on Her/Their  Family of SELLERS connection.

Many of our Records only go to 1920, But, sometimes, you can find Birth Yr and Place and Then study that county, they lived.
