Hi Marie.  I have not written to you in a long time.  I am the David from Hilo, Hi.  I have a new email, not the kupukupu57@aol anymore.  The reason I am writing is I saw a posting at Ancestory dot com that listed the father of William Sellars (father of James Elias Sellars) as John.  It also listed all 7 of his sons and their dates of birth.  I can't afford a subscription to the site, but was hoping to get in contact with the person who made that post.  One could give them my email.  Thank you for your time, David G. Sellars.

DAVID - here is what I see and mostly documented with PA wills, etc=

 SAMUEL SELLERS II

 Samuel Sellers II, born3-12-1690, and died 6-3- 1773, was the only
surviving son of Samuel Sellers I and Anna Gibbons Sellers. "He lived on
the same premises, followed the same trade of weaving as his father. He
was somewhat noted for his mechanical ingenuity. He erected the first
twisting mill, it is believed, in Pennsylvania (a complex machine for
twisting worsted), and became famous for coverlets by Nathan Rambo. Esq.
West Chester Pa.
 The Pennsylvania Gazette of June 9, 1773 says of Samuel; "A kind
husband, a tender parent, a good neighbor, and above all an honest man."

 Samuel and Sarah were life long members of the Darby Meeting and their
names appear many times in the minutes. Sarah seemed especially active,
Samuel Sellers and Sarah Smith "declared their intentions" in Darby
Meeting 7-3-1712 and 8-8-1712. Sarah died 5-24-1778.

 The children of Samuel I and Sarah Smith Sellers were as follows:

1. Samuel III  b. 5-20-1715 m. Jane Woods  7-28-1735 d. 12-26-1785
2. Hannah  b. 12-10-1717 m. Lewis Davis  9-1-1738
3. Elizabeth  b.  7-15-1719 m. John Hunt
4. John  b. 9-11-1721  d. 4-22-1727
5. Mary  b. 10-6-1723 m. Richard Loyd (1) 9-3-1736  m. (2) David Gibson
6. Joseph  b. 4-15-1726 m. Hannah Paschall , of Darby 1-13-1751
7. John  b. 7-19-1728 m. Ann Gibson daughter of Nathan and Ann Gibson of
Kingses of Phila. Co. 2-26-  1749
======
SAMUEL SELLERS III

To try to establish the identity of the grandfather of Mary Sellers
Jones, it is necessary to examine the records of the families of each of
the three sons of Samuel II and Satah Smith Sellers. We shall show the
records of children of Samuel III and the children of his two sons
Samuel and Jonathan.
 Samuel Sellers III, b. 5-20-1715, died 12-13-1785; married 7-28-1737,
to Jane Wood, daughter of George and Hannah  of Darby, she was born
9-5-1716, and died 3-5-1790. They removed from Darby to West Bradford,
now Pocopson, soon after marriage. This to a four hundred acre farm near
the Brandywine. The records of their children are taken from the minutes
of the Bradford Monthly Meeting. Will proved 1-14-1786 NO. 3756  Vol. 8,
p. 25 and from records of Charles Coleman Sellers, Secretary of Sellers
Association.

1. Hannah  b. 1738 m. Isaac Pierce
2. Samuel IV b. 1742 m. Mary Taylor, dau. Samuel Taylor  d.9-21-1805
3. Sarah  b. 1744 m. Abel Wickersham 4-13-1766
4. Mary  b. 1746 m James Trimble 11-1-1770
5. Lydia b. 1749 not in will or record of marriage. Probably died.
6. Ann   b. 1752 m. John Taylor  5-4-1766
7. Jonathan  b. 1755 m. Deborah Taylor (1) 10-2-1777 (2)Tainor Haney
  (This record seems to be complete)
 Minutes of Kennet Meeting gives these records of the childre of Samuel
IV and Mary Taylor as follows:
1. Deborah b. 1767
2. Samuel  b. 1769  m. Sarah Pennoch 1810 d. 12-24-1850
3. Lydia b. 1771
4. Abiah b. 1775
5. Jonathan b. 1776 d. 8 19, 1854
6. Isaac b. 1779
7. Mary b. 1782
8. Israel b. 1785

 The children of Jonthan Sellers b. 1755 and Deborah Taylor, married
10-2-1777, and Tainor Haney, as given in will of Jonathan, 1817.
Elizabeth Nichols, Little Archer, Hannah Wickersham and Sarah; by
Deborah Taylor. Asanah, Joseph and perhaps others by Tainor Haney.
Charles C. Sellers says this list may well be incomplete. But since Mary
Sellers Jones was born January 17, 1777 she could not be the daughter of
Jonathan, although there is a tradition that she was raised by her Uncle
Jonathan. If there is any foundation to this, other than she named her
son Jonathan Sellers, then Samuell II, or Samuel III must have had a son
not shown in the records.
   JOHN SELLERS
 The history of John Sellers, son of Samuel and Sarah Smith is to be
found in many accounts. He was an enterprising manufacturer and scholar.
But we will not pause to review the illustrious record of John and his
descendants, who are still prominent in many circles in and about
Philadelphia. We are only interested to discover if Mary Sellers Jones
born 1, 1777 could have been his granddaughter.
John Sellers b. 7-19-1728 m. Ann Gibson, dau. of Nathan and Ann Gibson
of Kingsess of Philadelphia Co. 2-26-1749. Darby Meeting. Their
children:
1. Elsizabeth b. 11-4-1749  m.----Garrett
2. Nathan b. 9-15-1751  m. Elizabeth Coleman
3. Samuel b. 12-30-1753  d. 12-10-1776
4. David b. 4-1-1757  m. Sister of Elizabeth Coleman
5. Sarah b. 12-10-1759  died 4-3-1776
6. John  b. 12-1-1762  m. sister of Elizabeth Coleman

Aloha again Marie.  I got a lead on my sellers name again.  I found out
that
my Wiiliam Sellers was really a James "William" Sellers--hence James
Elias
Sellers.  Don't know if this helps any but I am still looking for father
of
James "William" Sellers. I found a census from Ron Sellers from
Chocktaw-County Ms 1860 that says William and Susan where from South
Carolina......that's all I know-----Aloha oe Dave in Hilo

DAVID, Thanks, Lets send a copy to Dad also, so we get started on the
correct WM
SELLERS  and RON may have collected more info also, he can send.
We have collected more in SC - which has been a Hard State to Research
(for me).
YOUR WM SELLERS born when/where=
died when/where=
Where and who kids born=
I believe RONs Wm SELLERS came from SC thro AL and MS to MO-
same?
ANY info you can give us on connecting these families will be
appreciated-
marie, iowa



DAVID, Yes, have Dad contact us or send you the info and send to us -
However, Dad
wants to do.
States of birth, If you don't have a war document or land deed saying
from or born
in a certain place or an Obit - you kinda take what the family has told
you and what
the individual told the census taker and use till you have further prove.
Don't have much Shannon Co, MO census, etc - If you have , would
appreciate copy.

I don't Show the NC/SC connection - Ron gave us a lead once to Columbia,
SC (which
should be Richmond Co - but, we don't seem to have the info there!)
You may have this info - but, perhaps, it will refresh others memories
and if they
recognize , will send AnyInfo
===========

FAR AS I KNOW , WE DON'T HAVE A PROVEN SC COUNTY/STATE =
PLACE OF BIRTH/
PLACE OF MARRIAGE
PLACE OF WAR
WHERE ARE WE IN SC = HOW CAN someone Help You , if we Don't Know Where     YOU and US are?

DAVID -
We Need Proof on Where ANY child of Wm SELLERS 1802 is born.
MISSOURI has very early obits -

Their son JAMES SELLERS born ca 1834 = WHERE city/state born (usually in
obit)
Was he in Civil War?

DO we have them on an 1840 AL CENSUS - Believe Ron , who is researching
this family stated they came ca 1830/40? to CHATTAHOOCHEE RIVER in AL
(this could = stream : Houston : 304230N 0845145W : Saffold (GA) which then
could have been  HENRY CO, AL area, msh)

SO, If we knew city/county/state son James SELLERS 1834 WAS born, could
help prove WHERE we are from.
Also what did the 1880 census say on where Wm and Eliz SELLERS parents
born?

ANY OBITS on Any of their kids? for places born?
Thats mainly what I can think of  that we need - Thanks, marie,

Yo Ron,
    Any of these Sellers names look familiar.  Also look at the
birthdates and their kids names.  You will
find the sellers stuff about one third of the way down the page.  It
looks like this could be Williams
brothers.  I wonder where the wives are and how come their names are not
listed.....? Aloha--dave in Hilo

Aloha Marie,
     I am ready to give up.  I was wondering if you know of a good researcher and about how much they
cost.  I have spent mega hours and can't get past the 1850 Choctaw Coutny, Miss. census that Ron
uncovered.  It has the four girls as being born during the 1840s in Alabama, but I can't find anything to
bear this out.  I also would love to know William's brothers and sisters names and even his father name
and birthplace.  Mahalo, Dave in Hilo.



DAVID - These WILSON marriages were in Pike Co, Al and also the Whatley/Watley marriages and I find it interesting there is a Watley/Whatley Cemetery in one of your two counties in MS
with newer Watley/Sellers buried there!

I did a Fast check on MS civil war papers for James SELLERS = nothing -
(I wonder how complete this posting is?msh)
He is in MO later - the ? census lists if in civil war - Is he still alive then - have you read the actual census?
WE must Find Out Where Born -
Or Where ANY of these kids born , if you need to check/follow up EACH child - okay -new job

IDEA = At one time , I believe MS land was ALABAMA? anyone have this exact description?
BUT, don't think so in 1840 when this Kids born AL? = not much,msh

BUT, Ron, I believe stated his SELLERS went to ==== River, AL which appeared to be on the EAST side of AL

There Was a WM SELLERS listed in 1841 ? memory MS land Deeds =
These Land Deeds are on MS Gen Web Page = name, date - don't believe they tell where came
BUT, take time to Read thro and See if WM SELLERS land was next to WHOM?

There also is a Very Early JOHN SELLERS born NC , son of Mathew of Brunswick Co, NC died KY ca 1808 that came to MS -
I believe Mathews chart is on SELLERS page
Don't believe we have a page on JOHN and his kids - believe he died young?
Believe we have had members connect to him
AND these members could send info OR you could contact them and see ages of kids , etc and post on our MS pages that doesn't have this info!

AND we have members that should be linked to his kids =
PLEASE send simple note - saying you would liked linked to him and the places your kids went =
THIS is an oversite OR an UNDONE item-

some of  this info at = http://www.netins.net/showcase/sellerfamily/mat1743.htm
I really think AL could have a link - WE haven't found yet - WE Need Where a Child born - ANY child Born - is what we need.
THANKS, marie, iowa

I saw the post about a Samuel Wilson marrying an Elizabeth Wilson in 1837.
I have been looking for information on my Selle(a)rs line.  Ironically, I
have a William Sellers who married a (Susan) Elizabeth Wilson in 1833.  They
were from the Carolinas too and eventually ended up in the Alabama fronteir
where they had four girls between the years 1840 and 1848.  William and
Susan also had a son in 1834 supposedly in the Carolinas.  I have not been
able to prove anything.  I get kind of mixed up here but William supposedly
had some brothers; they being John, George, Thomas and David that I know of.
However, this has never been proven either.  My Dad thinks William's father
was named John.  To confuse things even further, William's first name was
James, but he always went by William.  These Sellars guys were big William
was 6'6" and weighed arond 250 lbs.  If you know of any info that could help
me in my search I would be forever grateful. I don't know what county in the
Carolinas or Alabama any of this happened in.  I suspect that William was
from NC but I think he was married in SC.   Also, this branch of the family
eventually moved to Choctaw County, Miss and then onto Shannon County, Mo.
Thanks for you time, Dave Sellars, Hilo, Hawaii.

Thanks for thinking about me (us). I think James servied in the Alabama
Engineers in the Civil War.  I tried to find something on them, but I never
had any luck.  I know William had land next to Harmon Sellars in MS.  One
lady told me they were cousins.  I wish I knew what county in Alabama the
family stopped in.  I think it was around Eufala, ala.  I got some good
papers from Ron the other day, but didin't have any clues.  He has done a
lot of work.  I will keep looking.  Are you related to William? Aloha oe,
Dave in Hilo



DAVID, Don't believe I've seen much new come thro. Check the county pages once in awhile for new posts. SOME show him born close to RICHLAND CO, SC, but, show NO proof or documentation of same. AND we don't have SELLERS/SELLARS  there, SO  he could be in one of the surrounding counties, IF he was born in SC.
HE states he was born in NC on all census records.
WE need a war file, some document to Connect to a county, area. IF his birth place , is documented, then those 4-5-6 counties is where we should spend our time.
I don't know if Ron and others have Proven him to an 1840 census?  That may help also.
Thanks and  best wishes.  marie, iowa

Aloha Marie,    Long time no see!  Anyway, I was just dropping in to see if anything new had popped up on my sellars line.  I found a couple of cousins who wrote me, but we all hit deadends at William. As I understand, William had some brothers, George, Thomas, David, Samuel, Thomas and John.  It seems to me, one of these brothers would open up a line to William's father and mother.  If you hear of anything, please let me know.  Aloha, Dave in Hilo.

My name is David Selle/ars.  I have a form of MD called CMT.  Any other Sellers out there with similar condition?  It can be very mild, you don't even know you have it, to very incapacitating.  I am somewhere in between.  I am curious to see if others in the family are afflicted.  Thanks, Dave in Hawaii.

kupukupu57@aol.com

DAVE, perhaps our SELLERS can share info.

 

AT one time, I believe there was a Family Board with illnesses listed. can't seem to find it now. Perhaps one of our SELLERS remembers it and can send url.

Best Wishes.

Aloha,  My name is David Sellars.  I live in Hilo, Hawaii.  My GGGrandfather migrated from NC or SC through the Ala. Frontier onto Miss and eventually Mo.  He was reportedly born in 1804 but another reliable source says 1812.  His name was William Sellars.  But, According to my father his real name was James William Sellars.  I am intriqued with your posting of a James W. Sellars from the 1830 federal census.  He isn't in Brunswick later on either.  He was supposed to have six brothers. Some of their the names were Samuel, John, Thomas, David.  I see some of those names listed too.  Could you please look at the census and try to determine who James W. Sellars lived closest to or with in the 1830 census.  Much obliged, Dave in Hilo

Aloha Marie, I started messing around again looking for stuff on the old family name.  I don't know if I ever shared this with you or not, but I have attached a PDF of a Miss. land grant that James Elias got in 1859.  It was a thrill to see his signature on the page. I also want to thank you for all the work you do.  I went and looked at my page and there is a lot of info there now thanks to you!  You are awesome. Is is worth subscribing to genealogy .com????? aloha,

Dave

 

DAVID, thanks, this was our first copy. added it the Attala Co., Ms page by you.

Hi Marie,
 
It's me Dave Sellars in Hilo, Hawaii.  I have a new email account now-can respond to this one-- davidsellars1@gmail.com preferred or kupukupu57@aol.com.  I laid off the family research stuff for a while, but a lady saw an old post of mine and sent me a whole bunch of stuff. 
 
I see rootsweb has changed quite a bit-couldn't even figure out how to use it.  But anyway, I was hoping you could update my email on that link, page you made for me, Ron and Darlene.  It is the htm page you see when you type in James Elias Sellars.  I was also wondering if you could post some of this new info I have.  It would help anyone searching for the line.  I found out who the first person was that imigrated to America in my line.  We are Anglo Saxson.  the lady's brother wants to get back to England and do some more digging.  He think we can get a line all the way to 800 with a little more time to spend over there.
 
Hoping all is well with you.
 
Dave Sellars,
