             Sellers in Texas

        From:

          Hi all,
I'm fairly new to this group, have been monitiring it for awhile but have not had
anything to go until recently.  My question is does anyone have anything on
Sylvester Frederic Henry Sellers (1871-1927) married to Sarah Meyer (sp?) born in
Germany and died in 1944.

I have the descendents all born in or around Galveston County but very little on
this couples' parents.  I believe Sylvester, who went by the name Henry, is a
child of James and Elizabeth Sellers.  I don't have anything about them or if
Henry had any siblings.  Henry and Sarah's children were Anna, John, Frank,
Antonio, Gertrude and Mary Elizabeth.

TIA

DEBBIE - do you know Where they were married? There probably is a death
certificate that may show his parents - depending on who gave the info.
He should be on an 1880 census with his parents.
In the 1900 GALVESTON CO, TX CENSUS =
HENRY SELLERS 27 TN, 7/1872
SARAH 28 GERM, 4/1872
ANNA 7 TX, 7/1892
JOHN 3 TX, 9/1896
FRANK 1 TX, 11/1898

SEEMS, This family is the SELLERS of Galveston - a couple others I saw
buried there and might help to know who they are. Jesse and Virella
SELLERS, believe I did see on a census, but, didn't check state of birth
in front of me.

Where did the James and Elizabeth idea come from - that's a lot of names
to check, but, might be necessary
. I did not see a Henry 1871 on the 1880 TX that I have extracted.
There were two on the 1880 TN census, Shelby and Maury Co. and may NOT
have all names on here AND may be anywhere between TN and TX.

and on the 1920 census he shows born TX.
Thanks for sharing, marie, iowa

Henry and Sarah were married 23 Feb 1892 in Galveston.  Sarah's parents
are Frederick (or Fridolin) and Anna.  Anna died in Galveston in 1913.
I have not been able to find any more about them.  As I have posted
before, Henry's parents are possibly James and Elizabeth but I have no
evidence that is true.

From the 1900 census, Galveston Co., Texas

SELLERS, Henry - white male head - b. July 1872 - Age 27 - Tennessee
(parents born in New York)
    Sarah - white female wife - b. April 1871 - Age 28 - Germany (parents
born in Germany)
    Anna - white female daughter - b.  July 1892 - Age 7 - Texas
    John - white male son - b. September 1896 - Age 3 - Texas
    Frank - white male son - b. November 1898 - Age 1 - Texas

   Henry's baptism indicates his parents were James/Elizabeth SELLERS and
was baptised Sylvester Frederic Henry SELLERS.  He married Sarah MEYER in
February 1892 in Galveston.  Frank SELLERS is my grandfather.

Does anyone have any SELLERS born in New York around 1850 who lived in
Tennessee?

Thanks,
