Lynn Sellars has also found the following letter from Isaac Sellers of
Cornelia, GA to his brother, John P. Sellers of Spartanburg, SC. It is
presented here exactly as written.

      Cornelia, GA Apr. 9th 1937
      Mr. Jno. P. Sellers
      Spartanburg
      S C
      Dear Bro.
           I am writing to let you know we are all well, & hope you all the
same. May was down here about 3 week ago and carrid us down to see Mary She
had been very bad off with Rheumatism but was some better then.
           You remember we was talking about tracing our kin back to
Revoultionary War when you was over here the last time So Ola & any of the
rest of our girls could join the D. A. R. Society, and since then Ola wrote
to the Media Research Bureau. at Washington City & got the history of the
Prince and Sellers which Says Capt. Asa Prince of Mass. & Capt Sylvanus of
Va. and Frank Prince and Liutenent Thomas Prince of S. C. fought in the
war.
And it says the given names of their Sons was John Richard Thomas Isaac
Joseph, Job, Nathen, Benjamin, Samual, James and Robert, & evidently Frank
or Thomas was our great Grand Father and which ever it he was, James (Grand
Pa) and Uncle Joseph Prince
           It does not Name the Girls names. Now do you supose their is any
record at Pendleton of the wills of these Men naming their Children or
where
their wills was probated. Grand Pas toomb Stone at Hazel Church Says Grand
Pa was born 1781 and died Nov 1863 and was 82 years old and Grand Ma born
1789 and died Nov 12, 187(illigible). The war ended in 1781 So I figure
Frank or Thomas was our Great Grand Father. Let me know what you think
about
it.
           The Sellers history Says Names of the officers who was in the
war
was Lutenant John Sellers of Pa. The given names of the Sellers families
was
Samuel Thomas Adam John Paul Philip Hans Henry Peter and Jacob So I figure
that Lt. John Sellers was our Great Grand Father and that his son John was
our Grand Father and that Uncle John Sellers Uncle Coona & Pa and Uncle
Uncle Jake & Ephriam was Grand Pas Sons and Aunts ------------ Christopher
and ------------ Dave Sharp and Aunt Sarah Sellers was the Girls There was
Several amigrants came from England but they was (illegible) English but 2
Germans & thir Familys came and landed at Philadelphia and one went to
Mayorland and one went up the State the State of Pa and Settled in 1737 at
a
place called Francona Pa his name Phillip Henry Sellers. and he was the
Father of 11 children Linwood, Phillip Henry, John, Paul, Peter, Jacob
Elisabeth Margarett & Mary So John must have been the one who Served as
Lutenant in the War and the Father of Grand Pa Sellers and Says one Sellers
Marred a Christopher and a Schnider (Snider) There seems to be Several ways
of spelling the names but have been boild down to Sellars and Sellers.
           Now all the rest of the Familys but this one Settled in other
States, the one that come with our Great Grand Father left Pa & went to
Mayorland when you answer this give me our Aunts given names Aunt
Christopher & Sharp you need not write so much as I have but say what you
think
      Your Bro
      I. T. Sellers



Marie, to my knowledge Lynn Hicks Sellers does not have an e-mail address.
Cousin Lori Sotelo is writing to her at the address that was given.
Information will be shared when we find out more.   And, yes, this is the
Habersham County, Georgia SELLERS group and some did go to Spartanburg.
When I was in Habersham County, Ga. this past March, I saw a lot of land
holdings for Isaac Sellers.  It is my understanding that he was the
Postmaster at Cornelia, Georgia for many years.   I did not have time to
extract all his land holdings while I was there.   I was mainly interested
in how he said our line should run, as we are showing different
information.
In his letter, no mention was made of an Abraham Lenda "Jesse" Sellers at
all, nor of a Francis Conrad Sellers.   Looks like we have more work to do
in order to actually prove that Abraham was our "Father".   I have not
heard
from any of the other cousins on this line to see what their opinions are.
I know this letter is just one man's opinion, and does not prove anything,
but, hopefully, when we do hear from Lynn Hicks Sellers that she can shed
some light on what I posted for our information.  Carole
