My grandfather,born in 1865, was Thomas Sellars married to Mertie
eloped in Guthrie, Okla in 1898. They later moved to Missouri. My great
grandfather was also Thomas Sellars married to Ellen. They had two sons and
one daughter Castilia and lived in Ohio. The name was changed from Sellers
Sellars when he immigrated to this country. I have pictures and other info
will share. My great grandfather was from Scotland or Ireland. If anyone
help me to find out more information I would be very grateful. My e-mail
address is AVON1717@aol.com
WE NEED a NAME, When and Where Born = Start with your Oldest PROVEN
AND when/where a child born
OTHERWISE, you can't PROVE Which Family.
SOMETIMES, our SELLERS moved often AND sometimes the LAND they lived in was
Changed to another county name , etc.
THEIR info may Not Match YOUR CHILD, But, if you supplied the
SOMEONE may CONNECT TO them in THAT COUNTY?
WHEN/WHERE did Granddad die?
WE DON'T need the Older Unproven Info ?
WE NEED THE newer PROVEN info and will WORK Back to PROVEN OLDER INFO.
THANKS for Understanding and Sharing.

Thomas Robert Sellars , born April 03, 1865 in Ohio.
sister Castilia born?
brother Henry? (my older sister thinks he had a brother named Henry, but
Thomas Robert Sellars and his family were burned out in the Great Chicago
Fire in 1871.
Thomas Robert married Mertie Maud Moore in 1898 in Guthrie, Oklahoma.
They homesteaded in Calhen, Oklahoma for a couple of years.
They moved to St. Louis and became an optometrist.
Thomas and Mertie had two children.
The older was Thomas Moore Sellars born Aug 23, 1899 in St. Louis, MO
The younger one was Mertie I. Sellars born Jan.24, 1901 in Ozark, MO and
Jan. 1947 in St. Louis, MO.
Thomas Moore Sellars married Ester Maddox. They had 2 girls, Ellen &
Diane, and a son, Thomas Moore, Jr.
Mertie I. Sellars married Barney Baker in June, 1918. Barney Baker was
born Sept. 01, 1964.
All of this information is proven except Henry Sellars. I have a
license, and death certificates. That is all I have been able to find so
after four years of searching. I can't tell you how grateful I am to you
your assistance. I had all but given up hope because I ran into so many
ends. I apparently don't know where or how to search very well and have
been in a chat room. I have used search engines, scanned thousands of
passenger lists on boats, tried to look at census records, all to no avail.
Thanks again. avon
