You are one of mine. The Sellers were supposed to have had
plantation in Perote, Alabama which I think is in Pike County or a nearby
county. There is a book with our Sellers in it. It is called:
William Sellers of Tarboro County, North Carolina and was written
woman in Anniston, Alabama. She is probably deceased now. I could never
get a copy; but, I brought one in through interlibrary loan. It is really
Also, a woman in Montgomery, Alabama wrote a little paper back
can't find mine right now--on the Stanalands.
I really haven't done extensive work on these lines over the years;
don't think it will be too hard.
I descend from:
Louisa Sellers, who married William Green Childs. They lived in
Geneva Counties, Alabama and may habe been in Pike. Can't remember; but,
they may have married in Pike County.
I'll stay in touch! How do you descend?
I descend to the Stanalands
through my Childs ancestor. Can
me up the ladder on the Sellers side from my descent below and provide some
degree of documentation?
1. William Green "Buck" Childs married Eliza
2. Elisha Columbus "Lum" Childs married Mary Julia "Mollie" Gill
3. Clara Maud "Clara" Childs married Robert Leslie "Rob" Richards
4. My parents...
5. This is where I come in...
These families were all in Pike, Geneva, Dale, and Houston Counties,
I have entered the U.D.C.
(my original papers) through #2 line. I
further back on the Childs than this listing--didn't see the need to go
furTher back on this query.
Entered DAR through my Childs line also.
Also would like to know if
William Green "Buck" Childs was in the
War with his son Elisha Columbus "Lum" Childs. We have found some
promising evidence of this; but, no solid proof.
