Maybe this information will be helpful to someone, even to me, but have not
had a chance to check it out.

This is a SELLERS CEMETERY, in Bracken County, Ky., that possibly has never
been recorded before.

In memory of Elisabeth A. the daughter of John & Hannah Sellers who died an
accidental death June 24, 1845 age 4 years 3 mo. 9 days.

Hi,

This is a long shot but my
daughter and her husband built a home last year in Bracken Co., KY The address
is 596 East Gillespie Lane, Augusta, KY. My daughter, knowing I do genealogy
research, called me yesterday to say her husband found 3 headstones in the
field across the road from their house. One is of an infant, Isabella Sellers,
died 1845 and the other two are for John and Hannah Sellers. He said he couldn't
read the dates on John and Hannah very well. If you or anyone you correspond
with are interested in these stones I'm sure we could take pictures for you.
They are close to an old house which should have been torn down a long time ago
and is very grown up with vegetation.
Hope to hear back from you.

SELLERS REUNION 1926 BRACKEN CO, KY


From: Kathy Lynch

Subject: Sellers

I found this 1926 Seller's Reunion photo attached to Ida May Sellers profile on Ancestry Family Tree. She was the daughter of Hezeciah Sellers, b. 1866 Bracken Co., KY and granddaughter of George Sellers b. 1820-1822 Bracken Co., KY. This house looks enough like one the one close to my daughter's property that I could safely say it is the one and the same. Do either of you know who George Seller's parents were? Could he have been a brother of John Sellers? I have written the submitter to ask if they know the location of where the photo was taken but have not heard back from them as yet.
 
The other attachment is of a home right across the road from my daughter that is currently for sale. It is a two story brick that was built in the 1840's and is adjacent to the land where the old house and headstones are. Click on the link at the bottom for additional information to download a "pdf" file with aerial photograph and survey. This may help to give you an idea of where this land is located.

Its possible and likely that George Sellers was a younger brother of John Sellers, Jr.  Thus, George's parents may have been John Sellers, Sr. and Elizabeth Fee.  I see a house in the background, to the right in the picture.  That isn't the brick house built in the 1840s, is it?  Probably not but figured I'd ask.

Hi Michael,
 
The house in the background is not the house for sale in the Broker's ad. I don't think the house in the background still exists. Construction on the AA (KY 9) Highway began in the 1980's and it went through about where that house was located. In the reunion photo you can see that the road on which the people are standing stops. There is now an extension of this road and the 1840's brick is about a quarter of a mile farther down on the same side. Were you able to pull up the broker's site? There is a picture of the 1840's home.
 
I spoke with Jimmy, my son-in-law on Wed and he said the other 2 stones are not readable and appear to be much older than the Isabella stone. Hers says "daughter of John and Hannah" so he assumed the other stones were her parents. That means now we don't really know who they are. Hopefully I can get the photos on my next visit.

Hi Marie,
 
I have no connection to the Sellers family. My daughter and her husband Jimmy Wolfe bought land and built a home on Gillespie Lane in Augusta, Bracken Co., KY last year. Last week he found the 3 headstones on land very near their property. He thinks the land on which the old house and stones are located is owned by Bracken County since it is mowed/maintained by the county. I'll have him look into finding out if he can obtain information from the county about original owner. The photo: 1926 Sellers Reunion I sent was attached to a tree on Ancestry. I think the house in the picture is the same house where he found the stones, at least it looks the same to me and I have seen this house many times while visiting. It is attached to Ida May Sellers (1895 Bracken, KY- 1959) and her father, Hesiciah Sellers (d. 1940 Bracken, KY). His father is listed as George Sellers (1822- aft. 1880), mother Sarah Gregston. They have no parents listed for George Sellers. If this is the same house then it seems natural to me to assume George is in the same family as John and Hannah Sellers, maybe a younger brother of John. There is also a two story brick home built in the 1840's directly across the road from their home which is now for sale and I will send you a link from the realtor. Bracken Creek runs through this land if that has any meaning to you. It is a country setting about 8 miles from the town of Augusta and about 20 miles from Maysville, KY. My thinking is that all this land was once a one large farm that was sectioned off and sold as individual lots by the county. I'll get back to you with whatever I can find out. I will be visiting my daughter in the near future and will photograph the house and headstones at that time. Unfortunately my daughter doesn't have internet or we could get these to you sooner.
 
All the Best,
