I tried to send the below note to Joe Sellers, but the e-mail address
comes back as invalid. I would really like to see and copy the Marlowe
document. Can you give me his current e-mail address, or can you perhaps
answer the question I posed to Joe? Thanks for any help you can provide.
Will send this thro our SELLERS group for any new addressess or info.
Joe SELLERS did a tremendous amount of work on copying this info
for our SELLERS members for help in Proving families.
Please send a small family chart of your family and perhaps our SELLERS also connect to Yours somewhere along the line.
Thanks, marie, iowa
WE don't have much Info - posted or Shared on JOEL SELLERS
born ca 1746 to 1750.
SON of BENJ dec'd in 1761.
WE need ages NC used for minors in 1760's =
WE need ANY and ALL documents posted on this JOEL SELLERS.
WE are missing tax/land/census records on this family.
I see where you pick up your family in Horry
Co, SC = ALL kids born SC on census I fast checked.
And where I been looking /searching is Columbus Co., NC.
COLUMBUS CO, NC was Brunswick and Bladen Co before 1808? memory
Bothers me that we can't find a few more clues, LAND transfers, etc
in NC or SC,
or NC births?
I haven't checked your pages yet and perhaps they will Show more
I see We have a couple more letters from you and I Know you want to hear and share info with our SELLERS.
Perhaps , they have newer info they will send us also, so we can bring our pages up to date.
Thanks, marie, iowa
I still have not Studied it, except per JOEL SELLERS 1748/50. I would
like more discussion on him and WHERE his kids are in 1775 (born SC?)
and WHO and WHERE is wife is also.
WE seem to have a JOEL SELLERS born before 1775 in COL
CO, NC in 1800's.
WHO IS HE? and his Kids. DO you show him on your charts?
Please understand my questions.
WE all share info on our SELLERS FAMILY GENEALOGY.
WE all are entitled to our own beliefs
THANKS for sharing, marie, iowa

We would like a small chart of your family.
Names, Dates, Places.
I am attaching a report of descendants of William Sellers, Sr. (b. 1637) from my file. My wife, the former Rosemary Sellers, is in the 11th generation on page four. This file is very much a work in progress, and changes almost daily. In some instances, such as which children to attach to which spouse, my source data has been conflicting, so I've made the best conclusions I could by logical deduction. If anyone has any solid corrections or additions, I hope they will contact me. I've not included many Sellers in Kentucky, Arkansas, Texas, Tennessee, Alabama, and Florida because they were getting a little remote from my wife's line, and you gotta stop somewhere.
We had a couple? SELLERS born in Chatham Co, NC before it was
1770, so we must find out where the land laid to know what county we were in
Orange and Rowan Co., NC has possibilities.
I don't know, but, we have a JOHN and a THOMAS SELLERS in these areas
with Unproven kids.
VERY hard families to prove. Few wills, but, we can exclude those families
that are proven and see what we have left?
WE have a MARY SELLERS born 1735? memory IRELAND , that
married or lived
in this area (married SPURGEN-loyalist?)
That I believe is a very good possibility.
SO , she would have an immigrant father on a ship?
WE/I seem to be missing some Documents on that family = we need more
I did NOT mean to say/indicate I knew JAMES SELLERS 1759 parents, I just
sent info we had.
Thats the documents we have.
#2 answer = Then I sent you the EDGECOMBE CO, NC page which probably
your family chart.
Its very possible one of those kids , married and left home and went to this
ADVISE any ideas, etc.
Thanks for caring, marie, iowa
The information I have is Joel Sellers (b. 1745 in Edgecombe County,
NC, d. 1787-89 in Brunswick County, NC). He was the only child of
Benjamin Sellers (b.1720) and his second wife, Sarah Hickman (b. 1725-28
in Edgecombe County, NC). Benjamin had seven other children by his first
wife, but her name is unknown to me. The other children are Benjamin (Abt.
1740), Matthew (1743), Elisha (about 1741), James (about 1744), Mary Penelope
(About 1746), Jechonias (1747), and Simon (1748).
Joel's wife's first name was Amelia, but her last name & dates are unknown to me. Joel and Amelia had four children, Sion (b. 1775), Matthew (b. 1780-84), Elisha (b. 1785), and Joel (b. 1787). My wife (Rosemary Sellers) is descended from Sion (b.1775).
I don't know about the Joel Sellers born in Columbus County, NC.
Hope this helps.
I've found some interesting tidbits about William Sellers, Sr. who came from England to Virginia. This data comes from the family tree of Durell Sellers (WFT Vol. 12, Tree # 3552), but his source is not shown.
Jan 1641/42, heir of John Kirbe, Charlton, England. Proven Jan. 1642 in Oxford, England. 1657, was among 7 prisoners from England with Christopher Reynolds, came to the Colonies. Jan. 16, 1676/77, he was among a group of petitioners to spare the life of William West.
A participant in Bacon's Rebellion
(This next obviously should be his son or grandson, since William would have been 100 years old at the time.)
land in Isle of Wight, Va. 200 acres south of Nottaway River.
1734, Held 200 acres South of Nottaway River.
1742, Held 235 acres south of Nottaway River
This Durell Sellers Tree also has Matthew William Sellers' (b.1682) wife as Catherine Jordan (b. 1690, m. 1706, d. after 1740).
Hope some find this useful.
