I am seeking information on Matthew
SELLERS SR. and JR. Matthew SELLERS
Jr. was the father of Sarah SELLERS OATS. If there is anyone doing research
on this family please contact me. Email me LeBateman@NetZero.Net, he
along the Conecuh River in Pike County. Email me or write me Jacob L.
Bateman III 3870 Strathmore Drive Montgomery Alabama 36116-4614.
My fourthgreatgrandfather was James WARD the son of Joseph WARD,
anyone tell me how he mightbe related to Sarah SELLERS OATS mother jane
WARD. In a book I have called History of Henry County it gives Sarah's
father's name only and said she was of Irish-French ancestry. Does anyone
have more information on the SELLERS ancestry. I do not have a list of
SELLERS siblings, but I do have the names of her children she had with
William OATS. If anyone is interested from his Bible Registry.
My Ward line comes through James WARD(1783-1860) and Maranda or
Parish. Their child Mary Ann WARD d.b.24/Jun/1822 m: Ephriam OATES
16/Aug/1849 his father was a first cousin of Governor OATES'S father
who married Sarah SELLERS. That is how I am related. Mary Ann OATES died
24/Nov/1882. James was the son of Joseph WARD. Who may or may not be a
brother of Jane WARD SELLERS.

I am not from a direct descendant of this OATES line
but a collateral
one. William d.b
18/Mar/1798 m: Sarah SELLERS 12/Feb/1833 d.d.28/Jul/1871 was the first
cousin of my fourthgreatgrandfather Stephen OATES d.b.1783 or 85 m:
Elizabeth SHIPP in 1803 or 05. Stephen died on the way to Alabama in 1835.
He is buried in Sampson County NC.
William and Sarah SELLERS OATS children were
William Calvin (Governor) d.b.30/Nov/1833 m: 28/Mar/1882 Sarah TONEY
(1862-1930) they one child William Calvin Jr.(1883-1938) married Georgia
Saffold one child
Marion OATES 1m: George Leiter of Montgomery Alabama now I have a list of
their descendants in OATES War Memoirs, and I will have to get it at
John Alva OATES d.b. 24/Dec/1835 d.d.21/Jul/1863. He first enlisted in
Company A Henry Grays Sixth Alabama, rose to the rank of Second Lieutenant
and transferred to Company G Henry Pioneers 15th Alabama to be with his
brother. He suffered from Rheumatism plus hip problems and was ill with a
fever the day the 15th Alabama assaulted Little Round Top. Col. OATS
him to report to a fieldhospital, but he refused he did not want the men to
think him a coward nor disgrace his country and uniform. So he entered the
frey and was mortally wounded within ten feet of his brother. He died the
21st day of July 1863.
Mary Jane OATES 1838-1912 she married James Benjamin LONG in 1855 and they
had Pocahontus, Dr. James B Jr., William Oates, Sarah Elizabeth, and Mamie
Long Thurman Soloman
Amelia Lousie OATES 1840 she died in Polk Co. Tex. I do not know when yet.
J. THomas Kelly he died 3/Jul/1863 in Company E 13th Alabama which was
of Archer's Brigade Pickett's Division Longstreet's Corps. She and Mr.
married in 1857
Melissa Ann b. 1842 married a Hickman she is buried in Headland Eastside
Baptist Cemetery Headland Alabama. Her father most not have liked her
husband he disinherited her upon the marriage. Governor Oates took care of
both she and Mary Jane after Mary Jane became a widow in 1864.
Amanda Elizabeth 1845-1931 married George Washington LINTON 27/Oct/1867
they are buried in Hamilton Texas he was born in 1842 and died in 1914. He
served in her brother's regiment. in the same company with Ben LONG.
Thomas Carraway 1847-1850
James Wyatt 1850-1915 he married Mattie Solomon in 1881
All of these were born in Pike County Alabama at Catalpa near Chunnaggee
Two other children are listed in the OATS Bible Registry but these are
grandchildren of William Sr. and Sarah SELLERS they are Claudius and Josh.
Josh was born in 1865 and Claudius in 1867. They are listed on the 1880
census of Pike County as Governor OATS children.
The Bryant Sholar mentioned in the Henry
County Info, I think that is
another line of mine. He married Polly Kirkland. Anyway if I am not right
about his wife at least Aunt Martha Soloman was his daughter, she married
William Lazarus Soloman in 1857 he was the brother of my
thirdgreatgrandfather John Wesley Soloman.
Our WARD connection between AL and NC doesn't connect =
If we have kids named WARD born in 1825?
SO Any WARD info appreciated -
Posting OATES info and WARDS info to separate pages by Sender- But, Not
THANK YOU for ALL help to our SELLERS group-

LE and ALL -
WHO MARRIED ANNA ---- probably NC? But, might check GA also-
WHO had a LAND GRANT in this area about 1830's?
INDIAN WARS were about 1835 - does Washington Co show a list? or maybe GA state?
WHERE DID DANIEL GO , married here in 1840's? Civil War - may show where born?
in 1840, ANNA is listed on the WASH CO, Ga CENSUS - WHO are her Neighbors?
