HARRIET SELLERS PRITCHETT MCDOWELL HOME aka LIBERTY HALL and HARRIS HOME

This is the home of the sister of Calvin Cook Sellers. (1811 msh)
C.C.'s house no longer is standing.

Harriett was the daughter of Samuel and Alice Cook Sellers, both born 1788, per tombstones. Harriett's portrait is still hanging in Liberty Hall. I don't have a picture of Harriett. I can get one next time I'm in Wilcox but don't have a clue presently when that will be.

Here is the Wilcox Female Academy

COOK'S?



nov 5,2002
gerryinga@juno.com
I noticed in the marriage records in Barefield's book, page 28, that "David Rodgers and
Sarah Pridgeon,8/2/1838"  the secutiries on the bond were David Rodgers
[the prospective groom] and  one Jacob Rodgers.  I don't believe the name
"Jacob" appears in any of the notes I have, so maybe your suspicion that
David who married Pridgeon is not Burwell's son is correct.
Also:  Jacob Rodgers appears as a security on the marriage bond of
Alexander M. Autry and Sarah Jane Rodgers 7/5/1840 (Barefield, page 40).
It seems likely that both Sarah Jane and David Rodgers were related to
Jacob Rodgers rather than Burwell Rogers. What do you think?Hugh Rodgers
ANSWER:
I think Hugh's David Rogers, who married Nancy Hartley in 1819, Putnam
Co, GA may have been Burwell's son...not the one who married Sarah Pridgeon
(b. 1814), and stayed in Wilcox Co, AL.  I was always suspicious of the
younger David because he would have been only 18 years old when Burwell's estate
was being settled... a little too young in my opinion.

Hugh's David lived in Butler County at the time.Nancy

Thirteenth Alabama

Infantry Regiment

The Thirteenth was organized at Montgomery, July 19, 1861, and at once proceeeded to Virginia. Ordered to Yorktown, it was there brigaded under Gen. Rains. It lay at that place till the army fell back on Richmond the following spring. At Seven Pines the regiment was engaged warmly, and the casualties were 7 killed and 45 wounded. Held in reserve during the battles in front of Richmond, it was nevertheless subjected there to a destructive fire, from which it suffered severely. As part of Archer's brigade, under Colquitt of Georgia, the regiment took part in the first Maryland campaign, losing lightly at Boonsboro, but heavily at Sharpsburg. The winter was passed on the Rappahannock, and its monotony was relieved by the frightful repulse of Burnside at Fredericksburg, of which the Thirteenth was a witness; and where it suffered lightly. Col. Fry led the brigade in the assault on Hooker at Chancellorsville, and there the Thirteenth lost half of the 460 men with which it went into the battle. It was in the Pennsylvania campaign, and at Gettysburg its colors were planted on the crest of the ridge, where they were torn to shreds, and the regiment was again terribly mutilated. Retiring to Virginia, the Thirteenth passed the winter of 1863-4 mostly in camp. At the Wilderness the regiment actively participated, and the loss was comparatively heavy. It took part in the subsequent operations around Petersburg, being now in the brigade of Gen. Sanders of Greene. - the Eighth, Ninth, Tenth, Eleventh, and Fourteenth Alabama regiments - subsequently commanded by Gen. W.H. Forney of Calhoun. Under Col. Aiken the remnant of about 100 men surrendered at Appomattox. Of the 1245 men on its rolls, about 150 were killed in battle, or died of wounds, 275 died of disease, 64 were transferred, and 202 were discharged.

  SAMUEL SELLERS 1788NC to AL -SON CALVIN COOK

        From:     PGreatho01@aol.com

                                   CALVIN COOK SELLERS
  Calvin Cook Sellers was born in Chesterfield,  District, SC , in 1811. He
migrated with his father, Samuel Sellers, to AL about 1828 and settle in
Wilcox Co., AL.

In 1836 Calvin Cook Sellers married Eliza A. Howell in Wilcox Co., AL.
The children were
SAMUEL,(April 7, 1843-August, 1885), married Leecie Ann
Johnson;
CALVIN COOK, JR.;

DANIEL;

SYD;

DAVE, who went to TX; ELLA; ROSE and LUCY
whose children were Willie and Ollie.

Calvin Cook Sellers began to study law and after hard dilligent work, he
was admitted to the Bar, where he reached a high rank.  For several years he
held the position of
Circuit Clerk in Wilcox Co.  In 1844 he was elected to the AL  state
Senate from Wilcox and Marengo Counties, and in 1849 he was nominated and ran for
Congress from Mobile.  While serving in the State Legislature, he was
prompt, intelligent and shared in the debates with credit to himself.  Socially,
he was pleasant and affable.  In the Legislature he made  a good reputation
as a legislator, and evidenced considerable knowledge of government.  Mr.
Sellers was the Democratic Party nominee for Congress in the Mobile District in
the campaign of 1849; and, after an animated contest, was defeated by Judge
Alston of  Marengo, the Whig nominee.  This ended his public life, and in a few
years thereafter he died.

Mr. Sellers was tall, prob., not less than six feet, four inches, and had
rather a majestic appearance.  His voice was strong and under command, and
he spoke with ease to himself and pleasure to his listeners.

Calvin Cook Seller died in March, 1852 and he was buried on his
plantation, which was later owned by Bruce and Fred Henderson of Camden, AL.

Hi,
I have several letters written from Wilcox Co. in 1848-1849. They were
from and to my Abel E. EVANS family members. I want to ask more about them
and others later, but want to share some of the names mentioned in the
letters. These are usually only *mentioned* -- and usually in regard to a
wedding, illness and death, attendance at Dallas Female Academy and
occasionally litigation. Apparently all were then residents of Wilcox Co.
--
Camden, Prairie Bluff. The spellings (especially in letters of Thomas J.
EVANS) are rather inventive.

Marriages mentioned:
Frank Dulany & Miss Angelina Higginbothum
Dr. Matherson and Miss Sambrina (?) Matthews
Dan (or Dave) Blackmon and Miss McIver
Joe Cook & Rebecca White

Illness and deaths
Mr. Bishop (preached funeral)
Blackmon
Lin Pritchett
Jack Pritchett
Dr. Curtis
Hiram McDowell
Samuel McDowell
Frank Bick
Louisa Norwood Gordon
Mr. Cannon
Burford
Guillet(s)
Sam Bones
Isaac Standly
Orvirson
Charles Sparks

Others mentioned:
Col. Sellers
Old Atwood
Jim Battle
Miss McDowell
Adelia Rodgers
Isabela McCall
Martha Robins
Capt. Baldwin
Tom Beck
Bethea
Louisa Cannon
Rebecca Fleming
Thomas Jones (supt. of neighborhood school)
Mr. Matthews

If these families are of interest, and you want the little speck of
information, let me know.  Also have three letters (1848-49) from Sally
Teresa HARRIS of Gosport, Clarke Co, AL, if you have those connections.

I would be greatly interested on any information on the following families
of mine who lived in Wilcox Co. -- mostly in 1830s-1850s: EVANS, SCOTT,
RATCLIFF(E).

Thanks,
Larrie Spier Curry

Negro Woman Killed

And Two Men Seriously Wounded by Joe West, Colored.

  On Last Saturday, about 3 o'clock, on returning from Camden to their home at Possum Bend, Joe West, a negro, who had been drinking and who was considerably wrought up on account of his wife leaving him, concluded to settle his family troubles with a 44 Smith and Wesson, and shot his sister-in-law, Hattie Baldwin, killing her instantly. His intention was to kill his wife, but she escaped with a few blows on her head with the pistol after it was emptied. In the shooting Sam Peyton and another negro man were both badly wounded. The murderer was captured by the negroes of the neighborhood; who were preparing to lynch him but were prevented by the arrival of the officers who brought him to jail.

  Joe West comes from bad negro stock. He is a son of Sylvester West who was connected with the murder of Mike Sellers several years ago, but escaped by turning states evidence. He afterwards was sent to the penitentiary for life for the murder of a negro by the name of Jim Bridges, and was killed by the prison guards in an attempt to escape.
