I am the granddaughter of Clayton Royal Sellers and Alice Jane Bledsoe.
Would be glad to share any information. Grandma kept and wrote down
everything!

Jackie



Would like to make contact with any "Sellers" or Bledsoe" from the Rock
Island County area.

I am descended from William Jefferson Bledsoe and Martha Ridgeway Bledsoe,
their son George B. Bledsoe and his daughter Alice Jane Bledsoe Sellers.

Also, on the Sellers side I am descended from Andrew Sellers and Elly Jane
Pennington Sellers, their son Stanton Sellers and Cora Belle Russell
Sellers, and their son Clayton Royal Sellers and Alice Jane Bledsoe Sellers.

Would like to share information.

Surname: Nelson, Russell, Sellers
-------------------------

My great grandmother was Cora Bell Russell Sellers b.January 1864 in LaHarpe,
Hancock County, Illinois d. January 1944 in Moline, Rock Island County,
Illinois. She married Stanton Sellers on January 1, 1880 in McDonough County,
Illinois.

Her parents were Albert Russell b. 1838 in Tennessee and Sarah Matilda
Nelson Russell b. August 1842 in Illinois (buried in Maryville, MO).

Parents of Sarah Matilda Nelson were William Nelson b. January 1809 and
Susana Arnett Nelson b. March 1817.

Cora Bell had a sister named Elizabeth (Lizzie)

I believe the parents of Albert Russell were James Russell and Martha King
Russell.

Would like to find more information on the Nelson and Russell families,
and share information.
