1793 = JOHN and MARY SELLERS of Woodford Co, Ky sell land they own in BOURBON CO, KY

FROM SHERRY
              "Sherry Mazzetti" <sherrymazzetti1@prodigy.net>
>From Deed Books A and B 1789-1796 Woodford County, Kentucky, Compiled by
Iris Byington 1996, Printed and for sale by the Woodford County Historical
Society.

Deed Book A, page 179-9 January, 1790

Benjamin Craig and Nancy, his wife, to Mack McDaniel 60 pounds 118 a. in
county of Woodford on South Elkhorn 1 mile below forks ½ mile above Sanders
Mill on south side of said creek.

[signed] Benjamin Craig

Wit: William Smither, Wm. Hickman, Thomas Settle, John Brown, Jeremiah
Craig

Deed Book A, page 253-12 October, 1793

M. McDaniel of Fayette Co. to John Matin [sic] of Woodford 50 pounds 20 a.
and 24 poles on waters of So. Elkhorn bounded by Thomas Little and George
Brown.

[signed] Mack McDaniel

Wit: William Hicklin, Jeremiah Craig, John Brown, Thomas Hicklin

[Above shows that Mack was a resident of Fayette Co, not Woodford. Wonder
if this is the same John Mastin he sold land to once before?]

Deed Book A, page 254

Benjamin Craig and Nancy, his wife, of Woodford and Mack McDaniel of
Fayette Co. to George Brown of Woodford for 100 pounds 100 a. in Woodford
on waters of South Elkhorn corner to Thomas Hicklin.

[signed] Benjamin Craig, Nancy Craig, Mack McDaniel

Wit: Thomas Hicklin, Thomas Little, Jeremiah Craig, John Mastin, John
Brown, William Hickman

[Note that this land appears to be just east of Frankfort KY. I have some
additional land entries for this area pointing to additional neighbors.
There is a mention of a sale of land from a McCoull of Fredricksburg, VA
(originally patented to a McDonald) to Benjamin Craig. May not be related.
There are mentions of land granted to Angus McDonald (he died) which were
left to his heirs. Mentions of this grant appear in several county books,
as the settlement was lengthy. I do not think Angus was related, but maybe
more about him later.]

Source; HISTORY OF WOODFORD COUNTY --page 84

John SELLERS was born in Pennsylvania, but was in Mercer Co, KY, soon
after the Revolution.  He died in 1812 and soon thereafter his son
Thomas W. SELLERS, who was born in Harrods Station, now Harrodsburg,
in 1788, and his wife Sarah ASHFORD, came to Woodford County and
settled in the vicinity of Clover Bottom, where he engaged in farming,
which he continued during the remainder of his life.  He served in
the War of 1812, was sheriff of the county for eight years, judge of
the county court one term, and for more than a quarter of a century
was a member of the county court from the Clover Bottom magisterial
district.

**********
Henry M. SELLERS, second son of Thomas W. and Sarah ASHFORD SELLERS,
was born in Woodford Co on his father's estate in 1814, and he too was
a farmer, also learned the carpenter's trade at which he worked at odd
intervals.  He was twice married, first to Henrietta STEVENSON, and
second to Alethia ROWLAND, both of the county.  By the second marriage
was Marion SELLERS who married O. KENNARD.
