Civil War Pic of Capt Sellers and Wife at Fort Totten from Mary Jones <dj@rtconnect.net>

from Harriette <hmw1808@aol.com>

This is the web site with more pictures of the 3rd Massachusetts Heavy Artillery Regiment. http://www.americancivilwarphotos.com/category/regiments/massachusetts-civil-war-regiments/3rd-massachusetts-heavy-artillery
from Harriette <hmw1808@aol.com>

I found a number of pictures taken at Fort Totten that were posted on a Civil War site dealing with the 3rd Massachusetts Heavy Artillery.  The pictures are all dated 1865, which coincides with the date of the Captain Sellers picture.  If there are any Massachusetts' Sellers out there, they might be interested.  For some reason, there is no roster or "muster" list for the 3rd Massachusetts on the internet.

I found a couple other Union "Captain Sellers'", but none of them appear to have been stationed at Fort Totten in Washington DC.  I went through alsmost all of the Regiments for the PA volunteers, and none of them had a Captain Sellers.  I also checked the 150th Ohio, and none show up on their muster rolls either.  It looks like PA has a pretty complete listing of their Civil War units.

Here are some other "Captain Sellers" that I found in Civil War records, but none of these units appear to have ever been at Fort Totten Washington, DC

Tenth Regiment US ARMY

The tenth regiment of the US Army had a Lieutenant Edwin (a couple of times he was listed as Edward) E. Sellers.  The confusing thing is that he did not attain the rank of Captain until 1865.  He was in charge of Company D.  In the 1865 - 66 time range he was stationed at Fort Snelling in Minnesota, and then his company was sent to the Dakota Territory.  In 1870 he was in Austin TX.  August 1862 listed as a 2nd Lieutenant in Company I on special duty to (it appears) the Adjutant General.
