Notes for Conrad Sellers, CSA:

It is my belief that COONRAD/COONROD SELLE
RS was actually named after his Grandfather, FRANCIS CONRAD SELLERS.


Coonrad Sellers listed in Haywood County, NC, 1840 census had the following
household group:

1 Male between 20 & 30 (1 male born between 1809 - 1819 = Conrad)
1 Male between 10 - 15 (1 male born between 1824 - 1829 = ???)
1 Male under 5 years old (1 male born between 1834 - 1839 = ???) This is
probably A.Sellers.
1 Female between 20 & 30 (1 female born between 1809 - 1819 = Artemissia)

was he on the 1870 and 1880 census?

Notes for Henry Rhodarmer:

EXTRACTED FROM OLD BUNCOMBE COUNTY HERITAGE - NORTH CAROLINA VO. ii, Article 486, p. 311


Children of Elizabeth Sellers and Henry Rhodarmer are:

20 i. Noah4 Rhodarmer, born April 25, 1817 in Haywood County, North
Carolina; died November 04, 1887 in Haywood County, North Carolina. He
married Mary
ann Henson December 29, 1840 in Haywood County, North Carolina; orn January 01, 1822 in Haywood County, North Carolina; died September 17, 1900 in  Haywood County, North Carolina.

Notes for Noah Rhodarmer:

NOAH RHODARMER, by Hazel Lee (Gossett) Wright, Sanford Webster Brown, and Mary Martha (Nieblas) Brown

Noah Rhodarmer was the oldest son of Henry (1797-1836) and Elizabeth
(1796-1865) Rhodarmer. It is thought that Elizabeth was a Sellers. On
December 29, 1840, Noah married Mary
ann Henson. When Noah and Maryann
married, Noah started making entries in his family Bible.

There are many variations of the family name. It is thought that since, at
one time, the name had been Anglicized to Redsleeves that this was a good
indication the family's occupation in the "Old" country was meat cutter or
butcher. Another thought is that this family is connected to the meat
packing family of Armour.

Noah had two known siblings: Phillip (1821-1876) who married Malinda
Christopher; and John (1826-1859) who married Rebecca Zilla Kinsland.
According to the 1830 Census, Noah also probably had two sisters. Records
have been found regarding the marriage of Mary Radornel to Joshua Kinsland
and of Susanah Rhodearmel to George Moore. So far we have not been able to
connect these lines. In 1849 Noah acted as bondsman for Jane Moore and
Joseph Christopher.

Noah and Mary
ann had: Margiman Henry (1842-1865); John Griffin (1843-1865);
William Kimzy (1845-1925) who married 1st Manerva Smathers, 2nd Elmira
Catherine Bonham; Phillip Jasper (1847-1848); Harry Labury (1849-1873);
Harriet Elizabeth (1841-1923) who married William P. Abbott; Mary Vian
ann
(1853-1908) who married Merit Jasper Smathers; Nancy Adeline (1855-1857);
Jethro Baxter (1860-1927) who married Amanda Cook; and an unnamed son
(1862-1863).

A great-grandson of Noah's is Air Force Major General Roger Kim Rhodarmer. A
great-great-grandson is popular Asheville radio personality, Scotty
Rhodarmer.

Noah (1817-1887) and Mary
ann (1822-1900) are buried at Morning Star Church
Cemetery, Canton, North Carolina.

1 Male between 20 & 30    (1 male born between 1809 - 1819 = Conrad)

1 Male between 10 - 15      (1 male born between 1824 - 1829 = ???)

1 Male under 5 years old     (1 male born between 1834 - 1839 = ???)  This is probably A.Sellers.

1 Female between 20 & 30   (1 female born between 1809 - 1819 = Artemissia)

Notes for Noah Rhodarmer:

NOAH RHODARMER, by Hazel Lee (Gossett) Wright, Sanford Webster Brown, and Mary Martha (Nieblas) Brown

 

Noah Rhodarmer was the oldest son of Henry (1797-1836) and Elizabeth (1796-1865) Rhodarmer.  It is thought that Elizabeth was a Sellers.  On December 29, 1840, Noah married Maryann Henson.  When Noah and Maryann married, Noah started making entries in his family Bible.

 

There are many variations of the family name.  It is thought that since, at one time, the name had been Anglicized to Redsleeves that this was a good indication the family's occupation in the "Old" country was meat cutter or butcher.  Another thought is that this family is connected to the meat packing family of Armour.

 

Noah had two known siblings:  Phillip (1821-1876) who married Malinda Christopher; and John (1826-1859) who married Rebecca Zilla Kinsland.  According to the 1830 Census, Noah also probably had two sisters.  Records have been found regarding the marriage of Mary Radornel to Joshua Kinsland and of Susanah Rhodearmel to George Moore.  So far we have not been able to connect these lines.  In 1849 Noah acted as bondsman for Jane Moore and Joseph Christopher.

 

Noah and Maryann had:  Margiman Henry (1842-1865); John Griffin (1843-1865); William Kimzy (1845-1925) who married 1st Manerva Smathers, 2nd Elmira Catherine Bonham; Phillip Jasper (1847-1848); Harry Labury (1849-1873); Harriet Elizabeth (1841-1923) who married William P. Abbott; Mary Vianann (1853-1908) who married Merit Jasper Smathers; Nancy Adeline (1855-1857); Jethro Baxter (1860-1927) who married Amanda Cook; and an unnamed son (1862-1863).

 

A great-grandson of Noah's is Air Force Major General Roger Kim Rhodarmer.  A great-great-grandson is popular Asheville radio personality, Scotty Rhodarmer.

 

Noah (1817-1887) and Maryann (1822-1900) are buried at Morning Star Church Cemetery, Canton, North Carolina.

Found in Ed Sellers papers when he died:   "John Henry Sellers was born May 12, 1848. He married Elizbeth Bentley and they had 10 children. Their oldest child was a son named Conrad Mitchell Sellers. There were 5 other sons and 4 daughters.

Records indicate that John Henry Sellers enlisted as a private late in the war. He joined Company B of the 11th regiment in the spring of 1864, at the age of 16. Enlistment was for one (1) year, and he was still active when the war ended in 1865. The 11th regiment blended with the 47th and 5th regiments late in the war. Some reports indicate that he was present with a brother who died in a war hospital near Cassitville.

Following the end of the war, John Henry Sellers returned to the Surrency, GA. area.

His wife received $60.00 per year pension pay for Confederate Soldiers until her death in 1926", per Deb Sannutti. ****ANOTHER SPECIAL NOTE****:  None of her Ancestors have ordered her Pension Record.  Another question I have, is how did she receive a pension when she died before John Henry did?

Dear Great Grandfather:

 

Your tombstone stands among the rest;

Neglected and alone.

The name and date are chiseled out

On polished, marbled stone.

It reaches out to all who care

It is too late to mourn.

You did not know that I exist

You died and I was born.

Yet each of us are cells of you

In flesh, in blood, in bone.

Our blood contracts and beats a pulse

Entirely not our own.

Dear Ancestor, the place you filled

One hundred years ago

Spreads out among the ones you left

Who would have loved you so.

I wonder if you lived and loved,

I wonder if you knew

That someday I would find this spot,

And come to visit you.

Martha Ann King Kent, a descendant of James Leonard Sellers told me this story, March 1, 2000:

"James Leonard Sellers died a young man.  He was on a wagon and a bridge fell in.  He jumped into the water to save the horses and wagon, took pneumonia and died shortly thereafter.  His wife had to petition the court for her minor children as their guardian.  She was also raising her granddaughter, Lillie Funk when she died.  Lillie's mother had died and her father decided to take Lillie away with him.  She didn't know him and wanted my grandfather to take her away.  He and his sister, Nancy Jenia, left the area and went to Arkansas.  He lived there several years and got a letter from a cousin in Haywood County, so they moved to Cruso, North Carolina, where he met and married my grandmother.  He remained there until he died.  Lillie met grandmother's brother, Lonnie Cogburn and they married... So, Lillie is both a cousin and an Aunt.  She is still living at age 105 years old.  She can't see or hear, but otherwise in good health, a real cutie."

Dear Bro.

     I am writing to let you know we are all well, & hope you all the same. May was down here about 3 week ago and carrid us down to see Mary She had been very bad off with Rheumatism but was some better then.

 

     You remember we was talking about tracing our kin back to Revoultionary War when you was over here the last time So Ola & any of the rest of our girls could join the D. A. R. Society, and since then Ola wrote to the Media Research Bureau. at Washington City & got the history of the Prince and Sellers which Says Capt. Asa Prince of Mass. & Capt Sylvanus of Va. and Frank Prince and Liutenent Thomas Prince of S. C. fought in the war. And it says the given names of their Sons was John Richard Thomas Isaac Joseph, Job, Nathen, Benjamin, Samual, James and Robert, & evidently Frank or Thomas was our great Grand Father and which ever it he was, James (Grand Pa) and Uncle Joseph Prince 

 

     It does not Name the Girls names. Now do you supose their is any record at Pendleton of the wills of these Men naming their Children or where their wills was probated. Grand Pas toomb Stone at Hazel Church Says Grand Pa was born 1781 and died Nov 1863 and was 82 years old and Grand Ma born 1789 and died Nov 12, 187(illigible). The war ended in 1781 So I figure Frank or Thomas was our Great Grand Father. Let me know what you think about it. 

 

     The Sellers history Says Names of the officers who was in the war was Lutenant John Sellers of Pa. The given names of the Sellers families was Samuel Thomas Adam John Paul Philip Hans Henry Peter and Jacob So I figure that Lt. John Sellers was our Great Grand Father and that his son John was our Grand Father and that Uncle John Sellers Uncle Coona & Pa and Uncle Uncle Jake & Ephriam was Grand Pas Sons and Aunts ------------ Christopher and ------------ Dave Sharp and Aunt Sarah Sellers was the Girls There was Several amigrants came from England but they was (illegible) English but 2 Germans & thir Familys came and landed at Philadelphia and one went to Mayorland and one went up the State the State of Pa and Settled in 1737 at a place called Francona Pa his name Phillip Henry Sellers. and he was the Father of 11 children Linwood, Phillip Henry, John, Paul, Peter, Jacob Elisabeth Margarett & Mary So John must have been the one who Served as Lutenant in the War and the Father of Grand Pa Sellers and Says one Sellers Marred a Christopher and a Schnider (Snider) There seems to be Several ways of spelling the names but have been boild down to Sellars and Sellers.

 

     Now all the rest of the Familys but this one Settled in other States, the one that come with our Great Grand Father left Pa & went to Mayorland when you answer this give me our Aunts given names Aunt Christopher & Sharp you need not write so much as I have but say what you think

Your Bro

I. T. Sellers

Article from Spartanburg Journal

dated June 15th 1911

 

 

DEAD BODY THAT OF JOHN SELLERS

Identification Established by Clothes He Wore

 

That the mangled body of a dead man found on the tracks of the southern Railway near King's Mountain last Sunday morning was that of John Sellars of this city has been defininately established.  The body will be brought to Spartanburg for burial.  I dentification was established when the clothes were sent to Mrs. Sellars of this city who stated that they were those of her son.

 

Sellers disappeared from his home at Woffard Street last Saturday morning.   When his mother read in Monday's Journal that the dead body of an unknown white man had been found on the railroad track near King's Mountain her fears were aroused, believing that it might be that of her son, for she had heard nothing from him since he went away from home without telling her good bye.  As the days went by and no messages came from her son, she became more aprehensive and yesterday she sought the aid of the Journal in a effort to obtain information concerning the whereabouts of her son.

 

The publication in Wednesday's Journal that Mrs. Sellers believed that the body of the unknown dead man who was killed by a Southern Train was that of her son, caused Policeman Deason, a brother in law of Sellers, to go to King's Mountain and make an investigation.  The identity of the body was established.   When Mr. Deason was satisfied that the body was that of John Sellers, arrangements were made to bring the remains to Spartanburg for interment.

 

John Sellars, was a painter and blacksmith.  For several months he had been painting for H. M. Gaines, but on Saturday, arranged to go to work in a blacksmith shop on Broad Street on Monday morning. *

Jennifer, I am a cousin of some distance to you as Samuel was my (g's x ?)uncle. My mom, Woodie Vinell Ward Berry was the daughter of Bury/Buray Walton Ward and Mary Jane Fowler. I've admired his and Nancy's hand tooled headstone many times when I'm at Damascus Baptist Cemetery in Banks County. Who is Mahala (sp?) Brown buried next to them with the same type headstone? I'll have to get with you on the details of our relationship. I did meet your cousin in banking -(?)- Cheek while at another nearby cemetery in 2000. I'd told him I'd seen this msg. but hadn't responded since I ha no details at work with me; the same goes for now, but I wanted to respond.

Later with details; I hope soon,

In Reply to: Sellers Brothers / Habersham Co. by Cecelia Sellers Koon  of 1345 

 

Hi Cecelia,

 

The information that I have states that Jeremiah (Jerry) Sellers married Adella J. Grant on May 29, 1892 in Habersham Co., GA. I list children as: George Weldon, Paul Grant, Albert, Sarah Lela, and Alley Sellers, but I don't have 1900/1910 census for this family group to verify the children's names.

 

Your Jeremiah / Jerry was on the 1870 census in Habersham Co., GA with his Grandmother, Mary (Mears) Prince, widowed mother, Sarah Sellers (viz Prince), and sister, Malinda:

 

1870 Habersham Co, GA P# 186B Household / Dwelling # 1087 / 1017:

Prince, Mary, 80, female, b. VA

Sellers, Sarah, 37, b GA

" Malinda, 11, b GA

" Jeremiah, 9, b GA

 

Jeremiah was the son of Ephraim and Sarah E. (Prince) Sellers. Ephraim was b. @ 1833, the son of John and Sarah (Christopher )Sellers. This family was from the Haywood County, NC area. Sarah E. Prince was born on March 8, 1831, the daughter of James and Mary (Mears) Prince.

 

The 1860 census for Habersham shows Ephraim, Sarah and Malinda, but Jeremiah had not yet been born:

 

1860 Habersham Co., GA Household / Dwelling # 942 / 942:

Cillars, Ephraim, 27, male, farmer, b NC

" Sarah E., 27, female, b GA

" Malinda, 1, female, b GA

(One of the creative ways for census enumerators to spell Sellers!)

 

This is not my direct line, but you and I are double cousins. My GGG Grandfather was your Ephraim's brother, Conrad Sellers who married Sarah E. Princes' sister, Artemesia "Arte" Prince! There was, also, a third Sellers / Prince marriage for Ephraim and Conrad's brother, John Sellers married Sarah and Artemesia's sister, Jane Prince.

Notes for Lorena Scoggins:

NOTE FROM AUSBURN RESEARCHER:

"I heard from my sister, Louise, (in Mississippi - about Lorena Sellers.  Here is what she sent me:

 

As a child, when I visited (with Grandma Annie Bee Watson they lived near Grady School and we went to Church at Damascus Baptist Church on Sunday.  Granny always wore a long black dress and a black hat to Church and to me, she always looked nice.  She was slim and tall, even a little taller than Grandpa.  Mrs. Lorene Sellars was my Sunday School Teacher there, and her husband's name was Ike.  I remember the first time I went there to Church.  When Granny told her who I was, "Miss Lorene" grabbed me and hugged me real hard.  She said:  "You're just like your Mama Hattie Louisa".  "Miss Lorene" was a big woman, with a ruddy complexion and light red hair.  She and Mr. Ike lived near the Church and her Daddy lived with them, though I don't remember his name.  Their little boy, Boyd, had drowned in a wash pot in their yard when he was small.  I think he would have been a little older than me, had he lived.

 

This is what I have from the graves at Damascus:

     Isaac H. Sellers     b/1878           d/1970

     Lorena Sellers       b/1878           d/1963

Notes for Jeremiah "Jerry" M. Sellers:

E-Mail from Teresa Hagwood, September 23, 2001:

I never met my grandparents on either side of my parent's family?  My maternal grandfather, Jerimiah M. Sellers, died in Georgia.  After Pearlie V. Hayes Sellers (his wife who was apparently 17 years his junior) died, he took their sons and moved to Georgia.  He left the daughters (including my mother who was the oldest girl) in Mississippi.  Mother was 12 years old.  I think Jerimiah was short but had talent with mechanics.
