          Dear Researchers:  Thanks for for great comments Ed and Mimi.  I joined the
list when I got back from Carthage.  I will be happy to share my Sellers
info and hopefully we can make some connections. My earliest known ancestor
is my great great grandfather( as Ed said) Thomas F. Sellers born April,
1815 according to a grandsons bible in Brunswick N. C.  . He died on May 8,
1871, in Union Parish, La.  He lived in Russell County Alabama from at least
the mid 1830's till 1858 when he moved to La.  Thanks,  John A. Sellers

Is Anyone familiar with the Thomas F. Sellers born Apr 23rd , 1815 in
> Brunswick Co. N. C. and marries Nancy Threadgill in Russell Co. Ala.
> in Jan 1838?
> John Sellers

  JOHN, I belive you have shared your SELLERS with us in Russell Co, Al.

We have a few SELLERS who have done DNA tests that connect to the early SELLERS = Benjamin SELLERS kids.

We need to prove each families children.

Would you be interested in doing a dna test = about 100 dollars OR if willing and need funds, we can put you on a "wanted funds" list. (we have all been there= we are family)

Many of these may prove back to Benjamin Sellers 1720/40, But, we need help on proving whose kids are who!
AND if possibly another family in here? = Jacob Sellers 1720= Duplin/New Hanover, NC etc,

Thanks for your help, etc.
