DAWN, Thank You,Need 1850 census on HIRAM SELLERS
please send exact data and neighbors-
My index lists all names? I wrote SISTLERS today for HELP -

First Land Records may show where came from=
We have posted some - but, don't see Hiram SELLERS or Blount Co, Tn ?
Send any info you have on Hiram SELLERS =
Thanks for sharing-

ELVIRA SELLARS 19F MCDOWELL CO, NC)
> Hi Marie, Just wanted to check with you and see if you were able to
> Hiram Sellers in the Blount Co.Census. He is not the Hiram C. Sellers
> Geene Co... Just wanted to check in with you. I appreciate any info
> available. Thanks Dawn
DAWN, Thanks - NO,- he is listed on my index of Blount Co,Tn 1850
with same names that appear as his family in 1860 - could be an error -
But, need to correct-SISTLER'S have Not answered my e-mail-
Will try and follow up with them - He could be in a NC county - believe
I checked the border counties.
OR living with someone else and surname entered as Head of House name-
Civil War records =
MY index of names (looking at now) does Not show where HIRAM SELLERS
1823 BORN = ?
or where dau MARTHA 1845 born =
I did Not find Lucy CARROLL connection to Sellers, but , could be
MUCH not proven and Needs work -
SELENA SELLERS does indicate a name pattern - (connected to
Brown/Patterson/Sellers from Tn County =?
Check surrounding counties - many land changes and if close to county
line - some went to that county seat , instead of Their county= county
Any info , send,
Thanks, marie, iowa
7-24-98= Phoned Sistler tonite and he has 1850 Blount Co, Tn census on microfilm - he will read for us, esp page 55 for SELLERS and advise 1st of next week.
We need to Know where the kids born - before 1860 - could help us know where they are -
WHEN we receive census info-will post, msh
KAYLA-The 1850 cd-rom Blount Co,TN Census by Broderbund re: HIRAM
SELLERS is an ERROR - It is the 1860 Blount Co, Tn census reading for
Hiram Sellers and family that is posted on the 1850 Blount Co, Tn census
Bryon SISTLER reread the 1850 Blount Co, Tn census for us and confirmed
above and states that Henry born 1854 is stated by his parents as born
NC in the 1860 census.
and also other older children born NC
Later HENRY shows TN on census.
WE are on the NC border and many county changes-
Also name patterns from GREENE CO, TN and WHERE they came from =
THEY should be on an 1850 census - under another spelling/name or living
with someone else.
TRY and read every 1850 census for a HIRAM = or names of his kids
Follow each child thro on census/history=I'M Sure you have done or doing
for relation living close=
OR possibly a different name for HIRAM (middle name used) and same
I didn't see listed on Tn Civil War - RECHECK- Blount Co, Tn records=
THERE is a CORREL connection listed on the bottom of our Blount Co , TN
page - checked out?
WHITEHEADS are close to SELLERS
I believe this e-mail sent info to SANDY which sent to us=
From: "Claudia B. Carson" <email@example.com>
Contact Claudia for more CORREL info
Thanks, marie, iowa
It appears that I have finally found my Hiram Sellers from the 1860 blount
census. I need to go look him up in the 1850 census to be sure. You have
him listed it looks like under the Macon Co. NC pages as h.k. sillers
McDowell Co. Let me know if you have anything else on this guy. All the
names are spelled wrong (wife) but everything else seems to fit. I am so
excited. Thanks Dawn
Marie, Can you send me the page in which all these folks are listed? I
trying to tie H.K. Sellers listed in the 1860 Macon Co.. NC census to
people. Also anyone that might have been in McDowell County earlier then
1860. Does anyone know where Deep Creek is in these areas? Thanks Dawn
DAWN - don't know if I have this Exact Letter Deed in front of me or memory
Maybe on BurkeCo? Long Page - Do a Search when you get there =
BUT, if you go to our MCDOWELL CO, NC page = (click on this colored line
It will Show you that before 1842 when McDowell Co, was made that it was =
MCDOWELL CO, NC (made in 1842 from Burke, Rutherford)
lays next to BUNCOMBE
AND on the McDowell Page Those Counties Will be Hilighted/colored and you
click on them and read info we have collected/been sent to us by SELLERS
I Believe you have the MACON CO, NC page =
The Hilighted/colored links on that page Should Take youto
USE your Back button to Return.
Questions, ask, We have Helpers that Explain Much Better than I do. marie,
I have confirmed and documented
Sellers in the 1850 Macon County Census. I have a copy of the original
census. My problem locating him was that the index book published listed
as J.L Sellers, Deep Creek page 347. It is a typo. I hope someone will
them know. I had been staring at J.L. for 4 years before I figured this
Anyway here is how it is listed:
1850 Macon County "Smoky Mountains" District
Deep Creek Page 347
H.K Sellers 24 b. McDowell County, NC
Avoline 22 b. McDowell County, NC
Martha 6 b. McDowell County, NC
Mary 5 b. McDowell County, NC
Amoby 3 b. Macon county, NC Female
James M. Jr. 3/12b Macon County, NC Male
Lucy Caroway 50 b. McDowell County NC
Elvira Sellars 19 b. McDowell County, NC Female
New Questions: Was Elvira a married Sellers possibly to a
James or was
a sister (unmarried) to H.K. (Hiram)? Was Amoby and James Jr. Elvira's
and where is the Father? Who, Where is Hirams Father, Mother, Bros,
Sisters? Is there a connection to the James Sellers listed in Macon
census? Hiram, Avoline, Martha & Mary moved to the 1860 Blount County
census. Where did the others go? Is the A. Sellars listed in the 1870
Macon County census Amoby at age 14???? Anyone with any information on
people would be greatly appreciated. I am still looking for land deeds,
wills and census.
DAWN, you may need to check marriages on these kids = if married in TN or
Hiram states born in 1826 McDowell Co, - BUT, if you Go to McDowell Co
the colored links) You find in 1826 McDowell Co was BURKE and RUTHERFORD
CO, NC =
THAN another study.
THANKS FOR SHARING, marie, iowa
I have seen Cain Creek mentioned several times with the Sellars.
Can anyone direct me or tell me Where Cain Creek Starts and Ends. It was
listed in the deeds in Burke Co. at one point. I know there is a Cain
over in NC today. And my grandfather said he was raised on Cain Creek. So
Any help would be great in locating this Cain Creek. Thanks Dawn
You guys are wonderful...Thanks for the many replies. If James
land on Cane Creek in McDowell Co. And My Hiram Sellers listed in the
Co 1850 Census says he was born in McDowell Co. Also has a James Jr.(in
which I loose in 1860) Living with him... Do you guys think that there
be any possibility that my Hiram is from this McDowell County Sellars
He was born around 1840. Marie, you know more about these lines.
Also I found a Winifred Sellars living next door to a Tempy Carraway (who
living with a Elizabeth Chandler) in the 1850 McDowell County. Think it
possible that this Tempy is related to our Lucy Carraway(Carrol, Caraway)
my 1850 & 1860 census. Your thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks again to all.
DAWN, would like to have several opinions, as many others have worked these
families and have a list of some of their kids.
But, I believe I would start in Burke Co, NC with the 1840 census and see
kids born ca 1826?
1840 BURKE CO, NC =
ALDRIDGE SILLIN, PAGE 328
JAMES CHANDLER, PAGE 328
PHILIP CHANDLER, PAGE 326
LAND CHANDLER, PAGE 327
ELIZABETH CARRAWAY, PAGE 329
SAL CARRAWAY, PAGE 327
WHERE is this ETHRIDGE SELLERS in 1850:
WHO WAS HIS WIFE?
WHO IS WINNEY SELLERS wife of?
ANYONE, Thanks for your help.

I am so excited. At our Sellers reunion a family member produced an

Carolina & Tennessee</A>
Scroll down to near the bottom for the images and click on them to see the
The James M. Sellars I found in the 1850 Macon County census with H. K.
Sellars is listed. I believe that the Laura A. may be the Amoby that is
listed. Never heard of Jefferson D. or Andrew G.. Any ideas?
DAWN, Thanks, Nice - Now , we either have two other SELLERS out there with families OR perhaps , died young. I am Not sure , we have complete 1870/80 census on these families? May Need - Sending thro our SELLERS list in case someone has the census OR Needs this info.
