KAREN - was James O. SELLERS born in ARKANAS?
Names of any of his brothers/sisters?
Names of any of his kids? esp by first wife?
Did he have an obituary? I believe I only have Arkansas records to 1910,
but, can look if
you can give me enough info, so I'll know if he right one. Thanks, marie,
iowa

       RE: James O. Sellars (possibly Sellers).  I don't know what his first
wife's name was, but I think the four children's names were:

Emmette Vester Sellars
Kenneth James (or James Kenneth) Sellars
Clyde Olive (a daughter - wasn't that a horrible name for a girl?)
Lorena Faralee

I'm not certain as to the order of birth, but I do believe Lorena
was the baby.  I've attached the information I  have, which are
decendents of James O. Sellars, Sr.

Thanks so much for any information you might be able to supply.

If you are interested in the Spears name, I have a cousin in California
that has done some research on that name.

Thanks again,

Karen Sellars Thompson
