Hi I don't have a lot of info. on the Sellers, here it is. Mathew Sellers 1783 NC Charolette Hart 1786 NC the only two children I have Chairty Paulene Sellers Nov. 16, 1822 (My ancestor) William Sellers (is this the right age group for your William Sellers listed on will Most of my Sellers were in Dry Creek, Dekalb Co . by 1850 I would say there is a good chance it is same lines, Any idea when Henry was born?
Jean Owens Oklahoma City
The Sellers family is the one I have the least info on. was beginning
think no one else was working on it.
Chairty and husband R.N. Cathcart are located in Dekalb Co. in 1870-1880.
They are in Warren Co. in 1850=1860
Someone sent me copies on the pages they were on. That someone was a
Cathcart researcher. So I haven't seen all the census to try to find
Here is all info I have hope it will help.

Reciently I bought the book A Bicentennial History of Dekalb Co.
Thomas Gary Webb. They are talking about old indian boundry crossing Dry
Creek on page 37 it says,
On the creek below the mill the Meltons and Sellers families were neighbors
to each other in 1811. the Sellers family were Drury, Archibald, Mathew,
John,and his son Jordan.
on page 93 talks about Drovers, Mathew Sellers is listed, on Page 149 talks
about how many slaves owned
You may have this already if not will copy it for you word for word.
January,1796 Brunswick Co,NC court, Deed registered from
ABRAHAM BAKER and wife ANN, to MATTHEW SELLERS= 640 ACRES
in WESTERN TERRITORIES. described in 10-16-1795 deed as on
the CUMBERLAND RIVER in Davidson Co, (now Tennessee) This
land later became part of WARREN CO, TN
(excerpts by FRAN
There is another deed/grant in MONTGOMERY CO,TN, which I can't
connect-it was in 1798 (to a MATHEW SELLERS)
NEED more history/deeds?
THERE are 3 MATHEW SELLERS in BRUNSWICK CO,TN- kinda proven to KY/TN/NC-
MUCH as been proven on BRUNSWICK CO,NC and I am sure there are other
counties that have NOT been PROVEN ?
THIS is about ALL I have - BUT, will continue to add/post info to any
county/state - ESPECIALLY, if children went to differant county, and
someone lived with them or next IS good info. THANKS, Jean-
I have a book A Bicentennial History of Dekalb Co. TN by Thomas Gray Webb. on page 37 it says on the creek below the mill the Melton and Sellars Families were neighbos to each other in 1811. There were several in both families: the Sellars family were Drury, Archibald, Mathew, John and his son Jordan.

JEAN - Mathew SELLERS ca 1783/1868 will of Dekalb Co,Tn dated 1857 and codicil 1860= wife Charlotte dau Mary Braswell son William dau Dennias Smith dau Charity Kithcarty dau Canzada Williams Wit in 1857 - James A. Dunhann, John C. Cris, Mason M. Brien Wit in 1860=Joseph Clark, Edward Roberson, Francis Turnerd (he had considerable amount of slaves and land is NOT descriped-he had grandkids of deceased children, which he cut out of will) So from memory= this is yourMathew SELLERS 1781/3 - WE don't know parent- Someone did think there was an older Mathew Sellers here - But the one that came about 1800 to this area (may be called another county) probably same? GO to the minutes of the oldest county , these 3/4 counties made from and read - believe we have some info posted. but, no PROVE on where they came from BUT, some of the other families seem to connect to NASH CO, NC and there, we have some in fo on John SELLERS and his land.- BUT, no direct relation to the SELLERS there! I thought we had posted Mathew Sellers will before, but, don't see - quite lenghty and not much info in same, except slaves names and amounts.- Maybe I could scan a copy to you - Santa did bring - pages must be pretty good to scan/send - but, these pages aren't too bad of shape - may practice! marie, iowa
