Hi. Some of this is personal. My information came from my father's file at the funeral home and his head stone.  I didn't ask the right questions while he was alive.  I lost my mother in 1998 so I have no one to ask now.  I haven't looked at the census.  My father and mother were married here in Okla. in 1940. Her name was Anna Mae (Hager) Sellers.  My father had three sons and me.  They are living and I haven't talked to them about listing them.   I listed his sisters because they are probably not alive. My son and I are putting together family history in his computer and on paper.  If I see someone asking about someone I know about, I post a reply. I had to change a post in cousinsconnect because my cousin saw it and I had listed her father.  So I'm more careful now. I have been everywhere in cal. that I can find on the net.  Records of births in the late 1800s are few and hard to find.  I am having trouble finding records of my Grandmother on my mothers side.  Thank you for listening.  Gracie 

 

========

My grandfather's name was Alexander, also.  His mother's name is listed as (Mary?).  This is the information I have on my father.  Alexander Sellers- Kansas-PVT.- BTRY. E 30 Field Arty.  WW1  B. Aug 28, 1891-Oct 10, 1966.  He was a member of the American Legion and a 7th Day Adv.  He passed away in Winfield, Kansas. I'm not sure what to do with all that but mayby someone does.  Thank you for any help.  Gracie

See below for 1870 census on this family in Lee County, Illinois two

Linn County, KS and Rice County, KS are not close to each other but I

still suspect George W. and Alexander could be brothers.  It is

something that should be investigated.

GRACIE, thank you.

WE enjoy researching SELLERS and where your/our families came from and went.

IF you have any Uncle/Aunt/( dates/places are very important ) info to share, PLEASE SEND.

 

YOU may have a hard time on this GEORGE SELLERS 1793 VA and wife ELIZABETH .

YOU may need a death cert or obit or war record on son GEORGE SELLERS 1830 or ALEXANDER SELLERS 1849 (both could be in civil war records)

 

USE the usgenweb for counties/states for marriages, wars, etc.

USE the wives surnames also, ONE link in VA is what we need.=

 

WHERE GEORGE or ALEXANDER born in VA =, may be on civil war record or ??

ASK for a look up on NAME, AGE, etc.

CHECK WV records also.

WV land was VA earlier

 

THANKS for sharing SELLERS,

AND keep us up to date.

Message Board Post:

I am trying to find the parents of Mary E. GOLLIHER born 12 Dec. 1857 in Missouri. She is in the 1860[Green Twp]/1870[Union Twp] census living with Sarah Speight and family. She married Alexander SELLERS 26 Sept. 1872 in Scotland Co. I have ALL records for her, just cannot find her parents.
Any suggestions? And can someone tell me what was going on between 1857 and 1860 in Scotland Co. that could have taken both her parents?

ROBERT, thanks.
We/I have not been able to prove where the Wood and Jackson Co, WV SELLERS came from.
WE don't seem to have the land records that are suppose to be available before 1831, which might help.

I don't know/remember how the Scottish ancestry was proven??
I don't believe I know Where Alexander Sellers 1859 VA was born?
WE need this info to Prove families.

I do Not know which George? Sellers went to OH in this time frame? from Jackson Co, WV (one from Greene Co, Pa and son went to Wood Co, WV later)

Yes, we have several Free Colored Persons here in 1830 Wood Co, WV that could possibly be same as Jackson Co, WV.
and NO will/documents listing same!
Is there another way of proving ?
http://www.sellers-sellars-sollars-zellars.net/wvwood.htm
They belong to our SELLERS families. No matter what color, etc they are. and we want to Prove their families.
Yes, we could use a dna test here on one of these families!

IF you see anything you have documented or have possibilities on, Please Send.
Appreciate your help.

IF anyone sees something I don't, Please send.

Gracie,
I am very surprised to learn that Marie Sellers-Hollinger was not able to help with your Sellers Branch. When I began to read what you sent I was thinking your line might be from the Heindrich Sollar/Sellers line from Germany to PA in the early 1700s. One of his descendants founded Sellersville, PA. Some of his descendants went down into the NC area and also into the Shenandoah Valley (Rockingham Co.) area as well as they opened up. But, I then that you said Alexander Sellers was of Scottish Descent.

Good hunting, and I well keep my eyes open for Jackson Co., VA/WV Sellers'

buried in the Hennepin Twp., Cemetery.

In the 1870 census for Alexander Sellers(Willow Creek), his mother Elizabeth Sellers, 67 is living with him and his first wife, Elizabeth b. 1851 and their son, John, 8 months, b Illinois. The older George is nowhere to be found.

The 1880 census has Alexander Sellers in Sterling, Rice Co. KS with his second wife, Mary E., 23, MO. Now son John H. is listed as her son. sons: Oscar H. 3, b. MO. Harvey W. 5 months.
Here is the 1900 census which is the only one that has all the children, except John who is nowhere to be found.

DNA MEMBER, JUNE 2009 = PD $50.00 on special 37 marker plus mtdna. PD $75.00 JULY 10,2009 .

My brother is willing to do the DNA test but does not have the $$$,  I
can only come up with part of the cost.

This might solve my brickwall.  All I have for sure is Alexander
Sellers, m Mary E. Golliher/Gallager in Scotland Co., Missouri,  26 Sep
1872.  Cannot find proof for their parents.  Alexander was born Oct
1850, Va (according to 1900 Okla census).  His mother was Elizabeth(big
help) b 1800 Va.  (per 1880, Kansas census.  I have found all  ten of
his children, not all survived childhood. 

My brother is the only living male Sellers for this line. Our father was
the only son that had children.  BTW,  Alexander and Mary E.  were my
grandparents.

There is a possibility of a connection with a family found in 1860
Illinois census, just nothing coming up as positive proof. 

Would be nice if we could connect with any of the Virginia  Sellers that
are proven.

Hi Marie
 
    I haven't been able to contact my bro about the DNA.  Called his daughter this morning and left a message.  Now waiting for an answer.
 
    I have made a little progress on the decendents of the first Alexander.  My dad's sister Mary.  She married Lee Andrew Marsh.  I posted
on the Marsh forum on Gen.com.  Hoping to find living decendents of hers.   Still need to find Myrtle's info for sure.  Don't think she is the
one who ended up in Enid, Okla.
 
    Below is the proof for Mary. Have my fingers crossed that this one is the right one.  I do remember Mom and Dad talking abt one of
his sisters living in Phoenix, Az.  Aunt Grace in Blackwell is the only one of the siblings that I remember meeting.  We visited her often.
 
    Have not made any progress on proving who Alex (1) and Mary E. (Golliher/Galligher) Sellers parents were.

Found these on LDS site.  Now how do I get a copy of
this marriage license?  I've never done Ohio marriage
research.  Besides, it's been so long since I've done any research at all,  I've kinda forgotten how. 
This would be for Gfather's first marriage.  Their son was
born Aug 1869(the ohoh).

Mari, that is my father, his first wife, and both my half brothers.  He, Alexander, she, Velma, oldest half brother:  James Kenneth,  younger half bro:  Oscar[not Owen] Dale .    Lots of mistakes on this census.    My father was born 23 Aug, 1891, Needles, California.  Not Kansas  

I can barely read the census but the added on stuff is wrong. 

Home address is correct, Dad's job is correct,  that's about all.  I'm not sure about the A. C.  In particular, the
C.  
----------------------------------------------------

I did talk to one of James Kenneth Sellers's sons.  Guess I come from a strange family.  No one wants to talk to other family members from what I have gotten so far.  His name is Kenneth James Sellers and he lives in Whiteville, North Carolina.  His brother Ronald Edward Sellers lives in Jackson, Mississippi.  Ronnie has not
returned my phone message yet.  Probably won't from what Jimmy said. 

I'm having better luck with my half nephew's granddaughter

I don't remember if I have sent the obit for James Kenneth's wife which has a lot of information so will send it
now.  If you would like to add all this to my file, that would be fine with me.
