I thought I would repost this, still a brick wall for me.
My gggrandmother was Martha T. Sellers/Sellars. She was born in
She was married to Samuel Franklin Reno/Reneau who was born in Kentucky. I
know one child was William Isaiah Reno b. December 24, 1866.
Sorry I don't have more specific info on Martha. I am really stumped.
You are an ANGEL!!! I am sure this is what I am looking for. I
that one of the generations had changed the spelling of Reno but was not
what the original was--something of a family squabble--and it is easy to
that Martha T. could be Mary T. Anyway it's a place to start.
Additional info in case someone else has collateral info laying around:
Samuel Franklin Reno died in 1924, unsure of his birth. No info on
Sellars except she was born in Tennessee. The only child I know of is my
William Isaiah Reno b. Dec 24, 1866 in Tennessee/ Married January 1, 1888
Valley View, Texas, to "Lockie" Williams (her given name was Henry Carlock
Williams--her dad wanted a boy). William Isaiah died July 17, 1950 in

I was going back through the archived Sellers list because I was gone
the summer and even though you all probably have resolved most of this, I
need to know what was decided.
I am Martha T. Sellers Renow's gggrandaughter. So that means, if I
e-mail right, that I am directly related to Isiah Sellers and Micah
Ed, in your e-mail dated June 27, 1999, you show Micah's line to
daughthers Mary H and Martha F. Yet his will shows these to be his
granddaughters and no mention of them as daughters. Since Martha is my
ancestor, it is important for me to get this right. Your info shows
to be born in 1844---three years after her father's death.
Cindy, you mention the Texas State Archives and the church records at
What is the TSLAC and where is it located?
The e-mails also mention Dorothy Moneymaker. Who is she? Is
available to be read?
Is there a strong tie from Jacob Sellers to Ishom Sellers to Micah H.
to Isiah Sellers to Martha T. Sellers?
I will be spending time with my mother soon and this is her family so I
hoping to get some of this cleared up.
Any help you can give me would be appreciated. Thank you very much.
I have no proof that this Micah is the son of Ishom Sellers s/o Jachob
