My great-great-great granfather was born in Tennessee in 1921. He
Missouri(Christian County) in 1891. His name is James Johnson Sellars. In
the tennessee 1850 census, it shows his name to be John Sellers. I know
it's him by his wife Salena and his children's ages all match up. I want
know who his father was and where he was born. He had a son named Mayberry
Sellars, born in Tennessee, and died in Missouri in 1924. He had other
children, too. John A., Letty, Mary, William, Frank, and Rebecca, all born
in Tennessee except Rebecca. All moved to Missouri between 1850 and 1860.
They were farmers. I have more information, but maybe someone could help
from the information provided.
1830 LAWRENCE CO, TN =?
1840 LAWRENCE CO, TN census =
JAMES SELLERS page 137= 00110001-00111001=
JOHN RAY, page 129=011000001-0102101
WM RAY, page 129=2211001-0022001
WE don't have a Christian Co, MO page (maybe now)
it lays in sw Mo, next to Greene, Lawrence, Stone, Taney, Webster,Douglas
Would they be in MO or TN in 1880 - may be able to check that?
Any Kids married whom/when/where and WENT where? greatly appreciated.
Thanks for sharing, marie, iowa
Thank you very much for the information you sent me on Sellers. I found
they lived in Perry County in 1850 by the census. I also found out that
went to Missouri in 1854 by wagon train with Mary and William Kenamore
Maury County, Tennessee. John Sellers had three more children. Mayberry
Randolph Sellers born april 11, 1850, and died in Missouri in 1924. He had
a brother named William, and a sister named Rebecca along with the ones
mentioned earlier. How did you find out that John and Salena got married
1840 in Lawrence County? Could Isaac Sellers be his father? or James
Anyways Mayberry Sellers had a wife named Hollie Elizabeth Emma Gibson.
They had five children in Christian County Missouri named Mary Ellen, John
Thomas, Nettie Ann, Robert Mckinley, and Girtie Miller. Girtie Miller's
daughter is alive, and I understand that she may have some information. I
have a second cousin(several) in Christian County Missouri who is going to
get in touch with Girtie's daughter. She lives by her. I don't want to
confuse you or to impose on you . I'm sure you are busy with your own
geneology. I want to thank you very very much. I appreciate it. I feel
connected to my ancestry, especially the Sellers side of the family.
