>Volume 4 Additions/Corrections to vol. 3: Sellers, Samuel (page 290):
> > John Sellers, listed as a son with wife named Keziah, was in fact a
> > nephew instead of a son. Samuel's son, John, was named John Millender
> > Sellers and was born 1812 (q.v.).
1850 census shows:
Household 6 as John M. (38) and Mary M. Sellers (32) with children.
should be the son of Samuel (not John) and the daughter of Solomon
Household 169 as John (33) and Keziah (28) with children. This should
the son of John and not Samuel as Huxford noted in the census.
I have no information of who the Father of John (husband of Keziah)
really is. I don't even have them or any of the children in my database.

From: "Don Sellers" <firstname.lastname@example.org>Marie,
At http://www.sos.state.ga.us/archives/default.htm you will find under
Pension Records a document from Appling County, Ga dated 28 Oct 1916. This
copy of the original submission for John H. Sellers' pension. This can be
by using your computers browser.
This John was born 12 May 1848 and enlisted on 12 May 1864 with Co.
Regt. of Ga (Whitehead Regt.)
I hope that this helps someone.

I'm not on the list, but I thought some of you might find this document
interesting: http://www.synthcom.com/~jdm/genealogy/georgia.htm . It has
some details on 3 Sellers/McEachin marriages, and information on the
McEachins going all the way back to Scotland (well, you'll have to look at
the other docs for that).
I've enjoyed the Sellers / Appling Co. page.
I am searching for information about my ggg-grandfather, Fred(e)rick
Douglass, who probably lived in South Carolina in the late 1700's.
He had a son, Alexander William Douglas, who lived in Appling County,
Georgia. Alexander was born around 1795-1800 and died on November 13,
1870. Alexander's wife was Dicy ___. She may have been a Watson, a Bowen,
or a Sellers.
Fred(e)rick was said to have been born in Burke County, so I assume
refers to Burke Co., NC. His father may have been James (Jim) Douglas who
came from Ireland.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
