I have a lot of information on this family as my husband is a direct descendant of John Sellers and Sarah J. McLemore (Hiram's great-grandparents). Here is what I have in my family file:

bur: Blakeney Creek Baptist Church Cemetary, Covington County, MS (I have been to this cemetary)

m. Mary Margrette Sullivan (dau of Mark Sullivan and Katie Byrd) b. 9 Feb 1868 d. 22 Jan 1950

Hope this information helps!


Hi, Juanita!
I also am married into the Sellers Clan, and I have been doing research on the family for several years now (more active now that I don't work anymore). Anyway...I have listed my husband's line below. I have a lot of information on this family back to John's father Andrew. I would be happy to exchange info with you.

Rob Sellers (husband)
Son of Haskel Sellers (living)
Son of Roland Herbert Sellers (b. 2 Dec 1905 in Jones Co., MS and d. 22 Aug 1991 in Jones County, MS) Son of Walter Leroy Sellers (b. 15 Aug 1879 in Jones County, MS and d. 9 Aug 1940 in Jones County, MS) Son of William Willson Sellers (b. 8 Dec 1852 in Jones Co, MS and d. 30 Nov 1912 in Jones County, MS) Son of John Andrew Sellers (b. 4 May 1834 in Covington Co, MS and d. 26 Mar 1922 in Moselle, Jones Co., MS) Son of John Sellers (b. 1800 in Orangeburg Dist, SC and d. Abt. 1875 in Smith Co, MS) Son of Andrew Sellers (b. Abt. 1774)

Hope this info helps in your search. Love to hear from you! Becky
