Here are a few Corrections that need to be noted:

 

The Helen Rae sellers listed as Alvin and Leafie Sellers is not their child,

she is the same Helen Ray Sellers that is the child of John Jefferson Sellers.

 Leafie and Alvin raised Helen after her mother Mittie passed away. 

 

Also I have that Jefferson Davidson died on Dec 19, 1935, and that Verbaline

Holybee was born on may 13 1868.

Does anyone know where Allen D. Sellers is on 1880 census..or any of his

kids?    John R. Sellers, his son married a Holybee girl somewhere in 1879.

They are probably living together somewhere.   My people were in Montague

County, Tx in 1880s.Thanks Lavonne
