Seeking information on ELVIRAH J. HINTON who married JOHN D. SELLERS.
arrived in Freestone Co., TX from Smith Co., MS before 1880. Thanks!
The following information came from this book.
History of Freestone County, Texas - Vol. II; 1989. page 457 by Earl L.
John D. Sellers (d. 1914 TX) and his wife, Elvirah J. Hinton (1825-1901)
to Freestone Co. from Smith Co., MS in the latter part of 1870. Children:
John (died as infant);
James W. b. 1880 m. 1st Mary B. McAdams
Joseph Franklin b. 1882;
Mary Ann (1885 - 1905)
Mary M or E Sellers (1825-1883), John's mother, widowed during the Civil
moved from MS about 1872 with children:
Charity m. Henry McKenzie Whitaker
Ora Belle m. Wesley DuBois
Clifton M. m. Jessie M. Manahan
Mack Henry m. Ezra Mae Compton
Kizziah m. Peter Hubbard (1848-1878)
John D. left TX in 1899 & moved to Duncan, OK. James W. moved from OK
Then John D. & son Joseph moved to Clovis, NM.
I need the parents of Elvirah HINTON. Thanks!
MIKE - Thank You. In 1860 HINDS CO, MS = W. HINTON, PAGE 547 JACKSON P.O.
AND THEY were married here 8-2-1868. Perhaps we should ask for a lookup on
census reading. I don't have the index to 1870. My 1880 TX census shows her
age 27=born ca 1853?
Can you recheck - I looked at some 1850 census and didn't see her, but, If
is correct, then she Wouldn't be on there. This census shows John as 37MS -
BIRTH place is also shown as MS.
AND a son Jas W.S. 3 months TX and the rest are Mother Mary and her kids.
type this and send if you don't have - We need it on our Freestone Co, TX
Did you know who the Hintons are on this 1880 Index I sent you? Mine is
index and soundex on SELLERS.
This marriage index = J.D. SELLERS and Miss E.J. HINTON AUG 2, 1868 - mAYBE
SHOULD CHECK - SHE would be only 15 and probably parents shown on license?
and NO KIDS till 1880? Wonder if Same OR correct date?
Might check or have someone check or get copy-
Thanks for sharing. marie, iowa
I took the tombstone dates on Elvirah from a book; not from actual
Could be a misprint. I'll try to double check.

Sorry but I made an error in an earlier post. Please correct as follows:
John D. Sellers married Elvirah Jane Hinton (3 Jan 1851 - 15 Jan 1901
Duncan, OK); she was the daughter of James S. Hinton and Elvirah Ann Byrd Hubbard
(1825-1879 Freestone Co., TX)
The problem is that I don't know the children of Peter Hubbard & Kizzah
Sellers. I only forwarded the information for others.
I am interested in knowing the parents of Elvirah HINTON, wife of John
Thanks for your help. I know that John D. Sellers, son of James W. Sellers & Mary Margaret Speed, married Elvira Hinton, daughter of James S. Hinton & Elvira Ann Byrd Hubbard. I would like to know the parents of James S. Hinton. He had a brother named William "Bill" Hinton and a sister, Rebecca Jane Hinton. Rebecca Jane was married 3 times: William Capps, Pleasant Clarke Whitaker, George Washington Steward.
MIKE, I only do SELLERS and maybe one generation on the gals.
Maybe one of our members has followed thro on Elvira's parents and can help. SC is hard to trace without war/marriage records. Was he in civil war? we also have the Indian? = 1835/40 wars.
Thanks for sharing.
Where is the following family in 1880? Does anyone know the husband/father?
Ann Sellers (1839 MS - 1923)
Ruthie J. Sellers (ca. 1872 MS)
Joanne Sellers (ca. 1874 MS - 1888 TX)
