Yes, There is some very good history included
on the Sellars family buried
there. And yes by all means use it. I was aware that it needed to be on
thelist, I just did not have time to send it to you and I know you
Thanks again. You have probably noted that a Sellars was the first burial
inthis place. The Sellars connect to many families in this end of the
Battle, Kniffin and Perrin's History of Kentucky, stataes J. K. Sellars,
Hickman Co. KY was born in Maury Co. TN. in ;1811 and is a son of John and
Eleanor (Kenny) Sellars natives of North Carolina, the father of English
descent , the mother of Irish descent. He came to Hickman Co. KY in
and settled on the farm he nows owns (c. 1880) John K. was the third of
nine children, of whom but two are now living, Mrs. Jane Evans in Graves
County, and John K.
Jane Sellars married 1858, William T. Evans.
John K married in 1842 Bethina Weatherspoon a daughter of William and
(Keorcum) Weatherspoon. (This may be the same William Weatherspoon and
Kirkum who married in Wake Co., NC 1790) John K and Bethina had three
children, James W. who married Louisa C. Burnett (dau of Brooken and
S. Perry (Rutherford Co., TN) William C. Sellars 1846-1923 a Methodist
Minister was married to Necie Farley. (not known if Farley was a sir name
her middle name)
Third child: Amanda Sophronia Sellars (1850) married Merrit Melvin Latta
> John Kenny Sellers 1811-1890 married to Bethina Weatherspoon/Witherspoon
1813-1885. John Kenny Sellers is son of John Sellers 1778-1847 and
Eleanor Kenny 1781-1835.
Other are Laura A. Sellers 1855-1862 is daughter
of John Kenny Sellers and Bethina
and Mary E. Sellers 1844-1862 is also a
daughter of John Kenny Sellers.
Louisa C. Sellers 1854-1895 would be the
wife of John W. Sellers, son of John Kenny Sellers and Bethina.
> A history of this family is written in the History of Hickman County,
Kentucky, I believe. It could be Graves Co., KY, but I think it is
Hickman Co., KY. Could possibly be a Goodspeed article on the family. It
does state that John Kenny Sellers was born in Maury County, Tennessee.
> This family is found in Hickman Co., KY, census records.
> I would imagine that John Kenny Sellers' father John Sellers is the son
of John Sellers, James Sellers or Robert Sellers - all sons of James Y.
Sellers that died in Chatham Co., NC in 1805. No proof on who the father
of John is however.
