Marie & List: I have received the certified copy of John
b.1825-27 AL. marriage license and have posted below. It shows, like
the same page, the license having been given several months AFTER the
celebrating of the actual rites. I assume I should use the actual
celebrating of the rites' date rather than the license date.??? Does
anyone have comments about this dating method? Also, please note the
bride's name. This is the one I will post and guess it will need to be
updated on the Matthew Sellers page. Thanks & I welcome your input,

CYNTHIA connected to Wm 1791 (Mathew has son ca this age and in same
But, How about the Mathew Sellers married 1811 Mary Boazman in Brunswick
Mathew as Bondsman?
What is this Mathew Sellers age? as Mathew 1760 didn't have any kids in
And Where is Mathew Sellers and Mary Boazman in 1820/30/40/50?
Do we have ages of All of Wm 1791 kids? and Names?
We need Ages/Names on ALL these kids or possibilities and where they went.
But, will continue to Search/Prove Out these Possibilities
RE: Letter/Reference about JOHN WARD SELLERS 1825
married 1845 Pike Co, Al Lydia Goodwin
Not being a son of Mathew 1760
I Would Like to Know Why ?
He had 3 SONS born 1820/25 and No one Has Proven All three!
Mathew SELLERS 1760
son 179l = WM ? MATHEW? (what was Mathews age?)
son 1805 =JOHN
did he have son JOHN born 1825 (where in 1830/40/50=)send info
John SELLERS born 1805 on the 1840 Pike Co,Al census does have 2 males
with him 1820/25) which I kinda thought brothers from the 1830 census. As
Mathew and wife don't have these kids living with them.
But, Maybe the 1837 marriage wasn't his first marriage? Anyone have
ages or the census reading on him in 1830?
IF ABOVE didn't have male child born ca 1825 - WHO else could have?
Mathew SELLERS 1760
who had 3 SONS born 1820/25
COULD HAVE A SON JOHN WARD SELLERS born 1825 and parents called him WARD -
Some Parents Had Two kids by Same Name as JOHN!
AND its possible We Aren't on the Straight Line!=
More Documents =
Kids (ALL brothers/sisters info/history/)
Any War Records=
Any Land Deeds
( I don't think we have any posted on Mathew - If I remember right, These
records and transfers and sales are available in PIKE CO, AL =
I and YOU and OTHERS can NOT get ANY Smarter WithOUT More info =
BUT, we have JOHN SELLERS here in 1860 TX with Kids of WM SELLERS=
ANY connection shown in obits = They should have in TX=Good Death/Obit
Some have a John SELLERS and HAMILTON SELLERS cousin/brother?This was
Hamilton SELLERS was DR also?
Please Send Info =
WHO else would name son WARD, unless Mothers name was WARD?
YES, We don't know ALL the kids in 1830 PIKE CO, AL
WHO has done a WARD family Search =
WE don't have a chart on JAMES SELLERS - in 1830 PIKE CO, AL
No One seems interested in where his kids born/married/went=
1 MALE U 5=1825/30
1 MALE 5/10=1820/25
1 MALE 10/15=1815/20
HOW did we Prove =
JOHN SELLERS born 1825 to =
as JOHN WARD SELLERS
We still have a John W. SELLERS that is an Unproven Undocumented Son-
Several of these Kids are only proven as ages on census, so far - perhaps,
more, later records will show a cousin? some kind of Help, if we keep
