JAMIE, thanks, appreciate the info and also the notes on the BROCK family.

WHAT I really would like to have is MINYARD SELLERS' kids, where born and where they went to , so we can link them to MO? and etc. and follow where they went.

I see you have JAMES SELLERS 1759 connected to a GEORGE SELLERS. Kinda interested in any proof on this?
Thanks for helping. I did link you to the Grainger Co, TN page where many of these families started.
AND would like to link you to MO, etc where your family went and I'm sure you can tell me faster than I can look up!

Do you have a fax because I don't have all this stuff on my
computer just hand written or printed. I have things that you would like
to see. I'll try to find the info you are asking but I have so many papers I
am having a hard time finding what you are asking for.   Jamie

JAMIE, thank you for sharing chart on JAMES SELLERS 1759 and
his family.

I don't know if these can ALL be proven or Not?
WE NEED more documents for proof?

Will send thru our SELLERS group for help. As most of them
are the ones who
have shared the documents on these families.

I will point out what we/I DON'T have Or see documents on=

JAMES SELLERS 1759 did NOT have a son BORN 1802.
per the 1810 NC BURKE CO, NC census

It is Possible JOHN SELLERS 1802 misstated his age
If born 1802 and married 1822 , would he have a bondsman on
his marriage?
Land records may show a connection to help prove?

ROBERT SELLERS could be born 1800 (wife Mary was born 1801
in 1850 census)

IN 1815 GRAINGER CO, TN we only have JAMES SELLERS Land and
we have
NO 1820 census, so we must use land records and county
minutes for documents.

Marriages and all possible kids of JAMES SELLERS 1759=
 SELLERS, James         B620 BROCK, Elizabeth
SELLERS, Robert        I342 IDOLS, Mary
 SELLERS, Syntha        D325 DOTSON, Samuel Jr.
 (SELLERS, Rebecca      J250 JACKSON, Jacob
(per 1850 census, Rebecca was born ca 1798 NC)
JAMES SELLERS 1759 does not have a daughter living at home
this age IN 1830
IF Sarah SELLERS is his dau or BETSY SELLERS 1800 is dau and
living at home)

YES, we have maybe 3-4 females that may have married and
stayed in NC? or
married and came with?
Some of the Land records in Burke Co, NC, may help show
these other marriages?

WE are in GRAINGER CO, TN in 1815.

JAMES SELLERS 1759 and female 1760/70 have a
male 1810/15 and a
female 1800/1810

1832-34 Grainger Co,Tn Tax List=
James SELLERS, 100 acres

ARE these SON'S?

ROBERT SELLERS dies before 1840 = widow Mary SELLERS born ca

1840 JAMES SELLERS 1759 is living in Bradley Co, Tn with
female 1790/1800 and
Close to David SELLERS 1810/20

JAMES SELLERS 1759 dies ca 1843 = 3 heirs =
JAMES SELLERS and two others, unnamed

James Sellers,  son 1791
SARAH SELLERS? UNMARRIED daughter? (NOT married in 1843)
or possible dil, but , others aren't named
and if a dau SARAH married a GOFORTH? when/where? she
wouldn't be a SELLERS,
unless married after 1843.

NONE of the other widows (MARY, )  are included in HEIRS?
are they?

AND, yes we have an ELIZABETH SELLERS 1800 here in 1850
WHERE has she been?
IS she a dau or dau in law?

WE only have 3 HEIRS in 1843?

ANY HELP explaining these questions, would be Appreciated.
Thanks, marie, iowa
