John SELLERS d. Hamilton Co. Tn.
20 Mar 2002 19:14:47 -0600
I am new to the list and I am researching John Sellers who was born in
either Pa. or Tn. abt. 1755, d. 8-22-1839 in Hamilton Co. Tn. His wife
Rebecca George Sellers, daughter of Edward George and Martha Woolaston, b.
abt. 1765 in Pa. d. 8-12-1839 in Ham.Co.Tn. I am trying to find if Samuel
Sellers or Christian Sellers was John's father. (One source says Samuel,
another source has Christian)
According to my source, children of John and Rebecca were Edward George
Sellers, Samuel Sellers, Mary S. Sellers, Margaret "Peggy" Sellers married
Jacob Black (my direct line) Martha "Patsy" Sellers, Thomas Sellers, Hannah
Sellers, John Sellers, Robert Sellers. If this is someone's line and have
information about the identity of John's father or other info, I would like
to hear from you. I have additional info on Rebecca's family but only have
as far back as John on the Seller side.
WE have JAMES SELLERS 1759 NC in GRAINGER
CO, TN next door to JEFF CO, but,
believe he was still in NC in 1810?
I don't believe we have Proven birth Places of JOHN SELLERS and REBECCA
GEORGE'S children =
But, IF FIRST child is born 1787 it would be TN or NC as they had land here
in Greene /Jeff Co, TN by 1786.
Married 1786 ? TN/NC? and I believe Silas GEORGE , probably
SON of EDWARD
is here in 1786 on land patent.
and dau AMY with kids born 1787 next door in SEVIER CO, TN
We should check NC land grants also for GEORGES =
Did they come thro NC to TN ?=
TN was NC then! But, we still need any marriages, etc along the way.
WE do have Other SELLERS here in Greene/Jeff Co, Tn.
1794 - THOMAS SELLERS, jury
1797 - JOHN SELLERS, jury
1797 SEYBERT SELLERS, bond for CAMPBELL
1789 = above GREEN CO, TN = ROBERT SELLERS
I don't believe we have separated/Proven them = But, believe
SELLERS is SABRET SOLLARS 1758 VA (REV WAR chart) from MD
I DO NOT have copy of this original Rev War file and We Need
he had a son Thomas born 1790 TN. (So, wouldn't be this Thomas Sellers on
He came down thru NC ca 1790? and to MO ca 1830's.
We do have a marriage here for that family = MORROW = went to MO by 1830's
NEED a TIME CHART on him and his family from 1800 to 1830
A JOHN SELLERS stayed here and had land next to GEORGES = his daughter's
husband proven in 1798 will.
AND we have some of his land which is connected next to EDWARD and SILAS
WE have NO name connections in JOHN SELLERS family to connect to
BUT those SELLERS families are there = WE need their land description ,
WE have the land grant/patent numbers, but, NO land description of
ROBERT/SEYBERT SELLERS land!!
I think it can be ordered or searched?
I get to rambling sometimes when looking on these old counties Where
have a Little Info and Need to change back to another county made from, etc.
WE could use a small chart of Yours on Margaret Peggy SELLERS married
BLACK 1810 JEFF CO,TN
would a appreciate a time line = where in certain years. =
And any relation that went with.
THANKS for understanding what we need.
And send what you can .
WE need DOCUMENTS on where we are each year, etc. to help Prove this family
and Any child.
We have a web page linking Names to States/Counties.
ED made us a chart on GEORGE families Proven from Jeff Co, TN and
probably updated by now and will send us a newer copy = names/dates/places.
THANKS to all for sharing our SELLERS.
Marie, thanks for the information you sent. The death dates
of John and
Rebecca Sellers and the birth date and place of their daughter Margaret
"Peggy" Sellers, was listed in the Jacob Black bible. (Margaret married
Jacob Black) Copies were made of the bible pages in the mid 1980's by a
fellow Black/Sellers researcher in Texas, but since that time the bible has
The information contained in the pages were sent to me, but I am expecting
to get a copy of the pages, if they can be copied at all.
I have a copy of the court record of a land deed of Jefferson
Co. Tn. John
Sellers and Edward George (Sevier Co.) Deed to John White 16 mar. 1810 in

Edward George. I believe that information is on this site or the netins
I also have a copy of court record, Register of Deeds, Volume L (Dec. 1813-
Dec. 1814) pg. 279 James Bradford, High Sheriff of Jeff. Co. Deed to John
McEwen (Roane Co.) in which it mentions John Sellars and Jacob Black.

deeper? We don't have much posted on this county.
Did they buy any land in Hamiltin Co,Tn? Were there any kids/grandkids,

We will continue to work on these families and sharing like you did,
We link family info to states and counties, So, maybe someone can find us
and give us a lead.
