My name is Keith Alan Sellers. I am researching the SELLERS
                        and the DONALDSON families from Haywood County, N.C.
                        These are my grandfathers surnames. In addition, I am researching
                        my grandmother's families, the COGBURN and LOOPER families
                        from the same area.

  I am researching the SELLERS and the
  DONALDSON families from Haywood County,
  N.C. These are my grandfathers surnames. In
  addition, I am researching my grandmother's families,
  the COGBURN and LOOPER families from the
  same area.

  My father's father, Benjamin Franklin SELLERS sr.
  married Martha Ann Cogburn in 1905. They have 10
  children: Chester, Mary, Edith, B.F. jr., John, David,
  Essie, William, Bonnie, and James. He moved from
  Georgia to N.C. in the 19th century.

  My mother's father, Jacob Lawrence Donaldson
  married Lydia Looper (unknown date). They have 8
  children: Mary, Florilla, Katherine, James, William,
  Clarence, Evelyn, and Francis Elizabeth. They
  resided in South Carolina early in the first half of the
  20th century.

  I have found numerous references to family members
  in the Social Security cd-rom set provided by Family
  Tree Maker, but no information in the World Family
  Tree cd-rom set.

  Any information will be appreciated.

BENJAMIN FRANKLIN SELLERS, son of
BENJAMIN FRANKLIN SELLER 1872/1972 and Martha COGBURN 1881/1973,


Dear marie:
After a trip to my aunt's house, who lives at the same residence that my
grandparents did, I was told:
father of Benjamin Franklin Sellers, sr 1872-1972:James Leonard Sellers
of Clarksville County or town Georgia.
mother of same: Mary Jane Anderson.
brother of James Leonard Sellers:Isaac Sellers.
Apparently, immigration from Ireland was at earlier date, but she said
that they did in fact descind from Irish immigrants.
Any help?
