Benjamin Duncan Sellers (b abt 1794, Bladen
Co, NC, d 3-25-1851 in Butler
Co, AL) married Elizabeth Ann Cromartie. According to my relatives his
parents were Wright W. Sellers and Duncan. Can anyone confirm this? Does
anyone have info on them, I certainly don't. According to my relatives
Wright's parents were Benjamin Sellers (b abt 1740 in NC, d
4/1817 in NC) and Letitia Bryant (b 1755, d aft 1820). Can anyone confirm
this? Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or Ralph Berry, 201 Oak Hill

Hi Ralph --
Yes, you are correct in everything you said. Benjamin Duncan Sellers
a son of Wright Sellers, who in turn was a son of Benjamin (d. 1817). This
confimed by both the Watters book (which admittedly is generally
and James Marlowe, who has done more original record research on SE N.C.
Sellers than anyone.
