I saw on your Web site the info, page 3 of 3, on my grandmother and
Carlton Sellers.  I couldn't get make contact with anyone before this
because my mother's memory in 1977-79, her grandmother, Melissa
(Malissa?) Darden married a John Sellers.  I finally made contact with
Linda Dumas, got the name more or less correct for Sellers, and searched
Carlton--bingo, I found YOU!
Who is the very elderly gentleman trying to find his grandmother,
Malissa?  Now you can tell him he has relatives all over the place!
And, I need lots of information, too!  Have so little about
Dardens/Wiggins/Sellers that I was going crazy.  Finding your website
elated me beyond explanation!
