1. Hardy Sellers, Sr. was born Johnston County, North Carolina 2 March 1757, and died in Chesterfield County, South Carolina 17 January l@35.  His burial place is not known suspected it is the old Sellers graveyard behind Hopewell Baptist Church, Chesterfield Count South Carolina.  Search has failed to yeild his parents names.
It is not known when Hardy came to Chesterfield County,but it was here he joined the Revolutionary Army in 1776 and served also in 1777, and also a volunteer for three months at the time Charleston was taken. (Application for Pension is on file in the Anson County court House.)

In 1784 he received a grant of land of 15 acres in what is now Ruby, South Carolina.

Over the next three decades he received State Grants for over 650 acres of land around Ruby.  He owned the earliest mill, Sellers Mill, in that area.

Hardy married at a young age and from 1774 until 1800 had a large family consisting of four sons and five daughters.  His first wife, name unknown, died before 1824 and Hardy married at the age of 72 to Lavinia Gulledge, daughter of Reverend Joel Gulledge, and Zilpha (Huntley) Gulledge.  Lavinia was also sister to Hardy's son-in-law, Jeremiah Gulledge.  Lavinia was 19 years of age when she married Hardy.  They had two children.

In 1834 Hardy applied for a pension for his services in the Revolutionary War, which was

The children of Hardy Sellers   by    first wife were:

2 i. John Sellers went West
3 ii. Abraham Sellers mar Mary Norwood and moved to Mississippi.
4 iii. Phillip Sellers
5 iv. Richard Sellers went West
6 v. Mary Sellers mar Thomas Gaddy
7 vi. Phoebe Sellers mar Jeremiah Gulledge
 8 vii. Jane Sellers mar -------Briley
 9 viii. Daughter, name unknown - nev mar
 10 ix. Daughter, name unknown - nev mar.

It is my opinion there was at least one, if not two other sons.  The 1790 census shows William who left that area before l8lO,andMatthew who has his own household by1900.
Matthew could be another set of Sellers.  'Ihe above sons were all that were named in the will.

     4. Phillip, son of Hardy and -?- Sellers, was bom ca 1774 and died between 18341836, mar -?-.
Not a lot is known about this Phillip.  He received a State Land Grant of 300 acres -in 1808, adjoining his father in Chesterfield County,.and in 1816 he received 80 acres more near there.  'fhe majority of his land was sold for taxes in January 1837.
If Phillip left a will, it has not been located, but a land transaction after the Civil War tells us he gave land to at least one of his sons.  It is believed Phillip is also buried in the old Sellers graveyard.  The name of his wife is unknown.  Between 1774 and 1810 they had a large family of seven sons and five daughters.

The children of Phillip and ---? ---Sellers,Sr.were:

11 i. William Sellers

12 ii. Phillip Sellers, Jr.
13 iii.  Rollen/Roland Sellers
14 iv. Hardy Sellers, Jr
15 v. Elijah Sellers
16 vi. John M. Sellers
17-18-19-20-21, unknown daughters.

     11. William, son of Phillip Sellers (#4).  It is believed this William is the one who mar Gilly Eddins and went to Alabama.  A receipt is in the Equity Records of William Eddins that William, Abraham and Roland signed, and it is stated they are brothers.  However, Hardy named Abraham as his son.

The children of William and Gilly were:

22 i. Son - name unknown
23 ii. Son - name unknown
24 iii.  Daughter - name unknown

     12.  Phillip, Jr., son of Phillip Sr. (#4) mar Mary E. Gulledge, dau of Rev.  Joel Gulledge,

(This family has been extensively researched by M. T. Gathings and Marie G. Wiggins).

     13.  Rollen/Rolin or Roland, son of Phillip Sellers, Sr. (#4) b 1794 d 9 March 1848, mar
1) Margaret Eddins, d 1841, cause unknown, dau of William and -?- Eddins.  Roland served
in the War of 1812, and it is from the papers his second wife applied for a pension, that we have
so much information on this son.  While we do not know if Phillip left a will, we do know that
Rollen did.  It was mentioned in a deed between Roland R., Phillip A. and Riley that he had left
the land to them in his will.

Rollen is said to be buried in the Sellers graveyard near Hopewell Church, Chesterfield County.  This was a large cemetery, and most of the markers were made of wood, and said to have been beautifully carved.  A farmer set his field on fire one day, the fire got out of control and reached the graveyard, burning all of the wooden markers.

Roland R. was in the Civil War, joined the Confederate Army in Brunswick County, NC and must have been killed during the war as no evidence can be located that he returned home.
After Sarah's death there was a large lawsuit over her estate.
Her father's will left his property tied up and Sarah still had not collected her portion at her death.

Are you looking for a book called the 'Descendants of Hardy Sellers' which was compiled by James C Pigg? According to the description he acknowledges the assistance he received from the late Marie Gulledge Wiggins and many others, on this line. He states that she had forwarded a book to him which she had started and shortly before she passed away, sent all her Sellers material to him, knowing she wasn't going to be able to finish the work and told him to do what ever he wanted with it.... with places to look at what he has and an order form which is at:

I did order the book and since there is an index could look up specific names if you or anyone would like.

Sincerely, Linda


LINDA, thank you.
I hope she got to see it in print before she passed. She wanted to Share with all of us. And JIM PIGGS got it on paper/published!

We/I only have extractions from her and Brenda/Anson Co., NC. Have a couple SELLERS/RATCLIFF document pages here I should try and get scanned for our SELLERS pages.
She had many pages of census info, which I believe we have posted, but ours , not annotated by her! She had several documents proving some families and assuming possibilities and some unproven kids also.

I don't see much on ELIJAH SELLERS = couple civil war records, but, article/book refers to a will , etc? okay, Piggs ref = heirs of Elijah Sellers to Helton J. Sellers (1882), CAN you send extraction of that?

Thank you for sharing SELLERS.
