Subject:  James Jackson Sellers - Houston Co., Alabama

Hello everyone,

I'm hoping to find some help tracing my great-grandfather,
James Jackson Sellers.

He was born in 1878 or 1880, and died in 1944 in Houston County, Alabama.
He is buried in the Mt. Gilead Primitive Baptist Church Cemetery.
He was married to Ella Evelee Byrd, daugher of Akriel Byrd.

That's all I know about him.  I haven't been able to find mention of him
in any census so far.

There is so much Sellers information available, I feel sure that if I could
just find his parents, a world of information would open up to me.

I'll appreciate any help that may be offered.
