We have lost one of our Sellers cousins.  Carolyn Drost who found her
Sellers family on our web site, died May 3 at the age of 57.  Her web page
is  She is not directly
to any of my line and I do not have her obituary.  Her friend, Nancy E.
Barr, sent me the notification of her death.  Cousin Carole

I have only the one Sellers in my database.  Would love to find her parents
and siblings.

My GG Grandmother, Salina Jane Sellers b. ca1834 Cannon Co?, Tn; md 13 Feb
1849, Cannon Co, to Martin Daniel Brown. Their first 4 children were born in
Tn, then by 1860 they had moved to East Texas settling first in Upshur, then
Hopkins Co.

Children's names were: Louisa, Susannah, Martha, Martin H., Tennessee,
William Jacob, Andrew Pinkney, Ella, and Leon.

Anyone else searching for Sellers in Cannon Co? Do these names sound

I enjoy connecting ALL of our SELLERS -
If you can send info on where this family went to OR any of the
children, I'll try and link places on our web page-
Have you read the 1850 Cannon Co census - would like to see all dates-
I have the 1860 Hopkins Co,TX , but didn't post Salina's childrens
names-didn't know she was a SELLERS, or in a hurry!
Was Martin's middle name HENRY?
I have the Warren Co Tn minutes on tape with land deeds - Can't prove
Henrys father - can't find original marriage!
It looks like, maybe, Susan was the wife and remarried John
Patterson-and they raised the children- When estate/guardianship
finished - John and Susan PATTERSON did NOT charge the estate for the
I forgot to check the 1860 census for Pattersons!
Thanks for sharing,

Please check my home page ...have about all I know of the Brown family there.

Also look at Louisa Brown Henson for her family info.  Then let me know if
you need anything else.

What is your home page URL???

I dont have any census records at the moment on the Sellers-Browns.  Most of
what I know of them comes from a book "Henson-Cartwright Cousins" printed in
1984 by Faye C. Pool.  Also some correspondence with one of the Brown
descendants in Hopkins Co.

I agree, Susan (Susannah??) apears to have been Henry's widow.  Salina Jane
named her 2nd child Susannah, probably after her mother??  Am wondering if
Martin Daniel and Salina's son's name was Martin Henry as you asked.

I found a query at Warren Co Genweb about the following Sellers..wrote and
asked if possible connection and received this from Jean Owens, Okla City:

"I don't have a lot of info. on the Sellers, here it is.
Mathew Sellers 1783 NC
Charolette Hart 1786 NC
the only two children I have
Chairty Paulene Sellers Nov. 16, 1822 (My ancestor) 
William Sellers (is this the right age group for your William Sellers
listed on will                            Most of my Sellers were in Dry
Creek, Dekalb Co . by 1850 
I would say there is a good chance it is same lines,  
Any idea when Henry was born?"

Looks promising maybe.  Perhaps Henry named his son William after the above
William?? who might have been a brother to Henry??


CAROLYN - THANKS, I'll be back- DEKALB CO,TN was made i 1837/8 FROM Cannon/Warren/White- SO before 1837 it was either of above- Her MATTHEW has will 1860/1 and SOME children proven and some disinherited-(I have extracts, not complete will) Mathew SELLERS dec/d 1861 son Wm does NOT appear to be yours- Henry SELLERS dec'd 1840 son Wm born ca 1837 looks good. BUT, we do need to read these 1840/50 CENSUS - before we know/prove much- I posted 1830 census -  can NOT tell where HENRY SELLERS is- IS he the HENRY SELLERS with land in WARREN CO,TN in 1835?(born bef1815? and estate sale in 1840/guardian ship in ? and minors born  Jacob SELLERS born 1839 and Wm L. born 1837 and  ---------------NEED to work on CENSUS, ETC-
