Georgia - Just found your info. this week.  It is wonderful.

I have been researching my husband's family.  I was stuck on Rev. Isaac
Sellers, b. 1842, Gibson Co., TN and married Eugenia Howard Blanton, b.
1845, MS.  Rev. Isaac was my husband's g-grandfather and his son, Eugene
Veazey Sellers is my husband's granfather.  Eugene married into the
Parramore family.  We made numerous trips to Gonzales, TX to research the
Parramore's and just got burned-out and switched to the Sellers.  Now we
will be making trips to Luling, TX to the library and take photos at the

If you need the info. from Rev. Isaac to present, we have most of it and
can get it to you or anyone else that is interested.  (Like I said, just
found and have not looked at all the info. you have posted.)

Thanks for your hard work and dedication!

Robert Franklin Sellers and Isaac Sellers

It looks as though my entire message did not go through!

I have also taken pictures at the cemetery in Comanche, TX of Isaac and Eugenia's headstones.

The bible is interesting. I have an old newspaper article that tells about Isaac's house being broken in to and a bible was taken. Could this be the one?

Don - FYI, Isaac's father was Robert Sellers as well as a brother named Robert. Also, my father was Robert Blanton Sellers as well as my brother.

Just found Eugenia's mother buried in Georgetown IOOF cemetery - Mary Mason Blanton. Most of Isaac's family month, father, sisters)is buried in Luling.

Will scan the pictures this evening to share.

Marie -

I would be glad to provide the DNA. Tell me what to do next!

Also, do you have email information on Don? I would love to see Isaac's bible and would be willing to drive to McKinney.

Last night I pulled out some photos (sorry, my geneology stuff is in a box - must get organized!) and will pull out some other photos and documents tonight. Will scan and send to you for disbursement and posting.

Found an old post card with a picture of Francis Sellers at about age 10 (?). Mailed from Houston, TX by Lula Sellers and addressed to my grandmother, Sue (Parramore) Sellers (Mrs. Eugene Veazey Sellers - E.V.). Need to get the postmark date to you. This might be of interest to someone - maybe Christine.

More to come,
