Hi Mari,

Thanks for your email of 7/6/03.

Before I answer your questions, I have a favor to ask.  Please change my
"Page Name" from "CONSULT'S PAGE to "CLC'S PAGE" or "CHAR'S PAGE".  Don't want
anyone to assume I do genealogy consulting.

Info I emailed 7/4/03 came from documentation and written "remembers"
compiled by great-grandparents, grandparents, and an aunt (all deceased) and research
I have done (still in progress) to verify info & find missing documentation.

Will start with 1st name (Samuel Sellers) in my 7/4/03 email & work Thru
email providing info on documentation.  Will answer your questions as I proceed.

Camden AL "Southern Republic" obit - removed to AL in 1829 & settled near
Cambridge & finally removed to Wilcox Co in 1830.  Had not heard of Roland & Philip
Sellers - have begun research - so far have 2 sets of birth dates?!  Thanks
for the tip. 
I
MPORTANT NOTE: Appears there were 2 Samuel Sellers in AL in 1800s.

Daniel & Alice Cook - Have seen internet info DC came from Anson Co SC but
have not been able to verify.  Alice - dau of DC - may be Allie listed as DC dau
in internet info.  Alice was penciled entry in my info & hard to read.  Do
not know where born.  Thanks for help & will pursue.

As per my last email, I would like to get rid of the "CONSULT" in my page
name.  If you need to give me a name that references back to my email address,
the last 3 letters in the address name are "CLC".  "CLC" or "CHAR" would be
fine.  I don't want any one to think I do genealogy consulting, so pleases get rid
of "CONSULT" if possible.  Thanks.

I don't have a copy of the 1860 Wilcox Co AL Census showing the Calvin Cook
Sellers family.  I do have a reference to - Eastern Division Page 1111.  The
reference comes from an aunt (deceased) who did a lot of research on the Sellers
family and was very exacting.  I am 99.9% sure it is correct.  Will look into
1830/40 Census.

Suggest name be changed from "Sellers Family" to "Sellers Maze" - just
kidding - I think!
