            SELLERS IN DEKALB CO. GA
        Date:
            23 Oct 2001 19:46:31 -0600

I am trying to locate someone with access to the 1850 census for Dekalb Co. Ga.  I
am searching for the mother and father of Samuel H. Sellers(b. 1844).
 I recently received info that they were in this county in 1860.  No father was listed in the
home.  Head of house was a Genetta(b.3/19/1814, d. 3/25/1885)(possibly Jenneta -
later called Jennie).  Also in the home in 1860 were John A.(b.1841), Margaret
(b.1839), S.H.(b.1844)-my samuel h., I hope, and James E.(b. 1847).  Margaret later
married John Lodgins(b. 1838).
Jennet, as she is listed in 1880, lived with them
then.  If anyone has any information on any of these people, I would be very
grateful.  This is a dead-end I have been working on for a few years.

My Sellers family was married into two generations of the Veal family in
the DeKalb County, Georgia, area.  I think my mysterious unfindable
Alford Sellers, brother of my great grandfather Richard M.
Sellers/Sellars lived in that area.  I sure do wish that I could find
him...  Other first names in that family, from oral history, were
Neuranus and Cederow... possibly Cicero.   As I understand it, they were
children of Alford.

My Samuel Sellers, b. 6/1844,  left Georgia in 1871 shortly after marrying Julia Kay.  They supposedly came from
Newton Co. GA.  All of their children were born in Douglas Co, MO.  I don't have access to alot of my information right now because of a computer problem.  I have hooked up a new one but have misplaced my family tree maker software when we moved a year ago.

Recently, I had someone give me some information that shows Samuel's mother could have been a Jennet or Jenneta Sellers who shows up on the 1860 census.  I have been trying to locate an 1850 census because 1860 and 1870 does not show a husband.  Was there any indication that there was  migration from the south to the gold
fields during the gold rush.  I show that Jennet's last child was born in 1847.

Just as a little extra note,  anyone that is a Sellers descendent should check out "Sellers Hall" if you ever get
anywhere near Philadelphia.  It's really cool.  I went there this September.

Thanks for your response.

I'm looking for information on the family of Abel Sellers, b. 1783 in Brunswick Co., NC, m. Esther Wall in Barnwell Co., SC in 1809 and moved from there to Newton Co., GA before 1830. By 1850, he and his family had migrated to Coosa Co., AL, where he and his wife lived until they died.

I am also looking to see if there is a connection between Dr. Anthony Hamilton Sellers, b. 1823 in SC, who lived in Montgomery Co., AL, whose father was from Brunswick Co., NC.

The sellers book of William Sellers of Tarboro NC has a nice write up for Dr. Sellers and his son Anthony Jr.
Do you have this or want me to send it to you.

No mention of Abel Sellers.
Jane Sellers Mcbroom

=====

If there is not too much, that would be great. Can you email it to me? Everything that I have found, which isn't much, points Abel toward Brunswick County. I have that he was born there in 1783, married Esther Wall in Barnwell County, South Carolina in 1809 and was in Newton County, GA by 1830 and 1840.

Abel's son, Hardy Wall Sellers, married Jenetta Harmon abt. 1823. They raised 4-5 children. There may be an older son I don't know much about. Hardy and Jennie's son, Samuel H. Sellers, is my husband's gg-grandfather. He was born in Newton County, GA in 1844. His youngest sibling was born in 1847 and his father does not show up in the 1850 census as part of the household. So, either Hardy died sometime between 1847 and 1850 or he left. I have no mention of him anywhere else. Abel and the rest of his family moved on to Coosa County, AL by 1850. He and his wife lived there until they died.

Marie,

I would like to thank you for the information. I don't know that I would
have found it had you not sent it to me. I'm not sure yet if there is a
connection between this Anthony H. Sellers in Montgomery county, AL and our
Abel Sellers of Coosa Co., AL. What got me started in this direction was my
father-in-law, Gary Sellers, who was working in Alabama last year after the
hurricanes. He is the foreman for a tree company. They did alot of cleanup
across the state of Alabama. He noticed on an Alabama state map a little
town named "Sellers" in Montgomery county and wondered if I knew if there
was a connection to our family.

I posted a message asking if anyone knew the origin of the town's name and I
received an email saying that it was named after a William Sellers, who was
the first postmaster in the town in 1890. According to the book this came
from, the town no longer has a post office.

Before I found this information out though, I had checked the 1880 census to
see if there was anyone in Montgomery county named Sellers. That is how I
came across Dr. Anthony Hamilton Sellers. My Abel Sellers was supposed to
be from Brunswick Co. NC, b. in 1783. His parents were John William
Sellers, b. abt. 1755 and Mary Allred, b. abt. 1755. I have not proven
this.

Anthony Hamilton Sellers' parents were William Sellers b. 1791 in Brunswick
Co., NC and mother was Eleander Edwards. So that is why I wondered if Abel
and Anthony Hamilton could possibly be related...possibly Uncle and Nephew
or cousins? I have just started pursuing this possibility and have not come
across much as yet.

Do you have any information that might be able to help me?

Thank you,
Marie Sellers

I am trying to find death information on a Hardy Wall Sellers, b. abt. 1815 in South Carolina (probably Barnwell Co.), m. Jenetta Harmon abt. 1834. Hardy and Jenny migrated to Newton County, Georgia sometime between 1834 and 1842. They had 4-5 children, the first being Thomas or Francis , b. 1834 in South Carolina, Margaret A. Sellers, b. 10 March 183, John A. Sellers, b. 1842 in Georgia, Samuel H. Sellers, b. 11 November 1844 in Newton County, GA, Jane E. Sellers, b. 1 February 1847.

By 1850, Jenny shows up as head of household on the Newton County Georgia census, but I cannot find any proof of Hardy's death.

Hardy is the son of Abel and Esther(Wall) Sellers, who also lived in Newton County in 1850, but by 1860, Abel and most of the rest of his family had migrated on to Coosa Co., Alabama.

Jenny remained in Georgia, living with her daughter, Margaret's family until she died. Margaret was married to John N. Dodgen. He and Margaret's brother, John, both served in the same infantry unit in the Civil War.(38th Georgia Infantry) John was sent home to recuperate in 1864. Samuel H. Sellers married Julia E. Kay and they moved to Douglas County, Missouri in 1871. This is my husband's gg grandfather. Jane E. Sellers married James McCurdy and remained living in Georgia as far as I know. John A. Sellers died at the Battle of Antietem(Sharpsburg, MD) on September 17, 1862. I don't know if he was ever married. As far as the eldest, I can find no record of him except on the 1850 census.

Again, what I am interested in is some kind of death record, if possible, for Hardy Wall Sellers in Newton County, Georgia, between 1847 and 1850.

Thanks,
Marie Sellers

Marie,

Yes, my son, husband, my father-in-law, and my husband's grandfather are all still living. There are also several descendants of Samuel H. Sellers' line still alive down in Douglas Co. MO.

How expensive is that to do?

Marie.

Have a great day!
