I am searching for information pertaining to Thomas M. Sellers who was born June 1840 in Tennessee, possibly the son of Sam W. Sellers who was noted as head of household in Jefferson County, Tennessee, in 1860 census records.

Thomas M. Sellers is believed to have married twice. His first wife was Letta/Lottie/Lotta/Lotte Bailey and with her he had several children
including: Mary C. Sellers who married J. J. Case; Sarah Rosella Sellers who married Samuel H. Maston; and Addie Letis Sellers who married and A. J. Kerr.

Thomas M. Sellers' second wife was Sarah Ellen. Little information is known about Sarah, including her last name. According to 1900 Jefferson County census records, she was born about 1851, had four children, all of whom were still living in 1900, she had been married to Thomas about 10 years, and it appears that three of her four children were born to a previous marriage.

I descend through Sarah Rosella Sellers and Samuel H. Maston.

RANDI, thanks.

Maybe, someone on our SELLERS group can help with info they have on their Jefferson Co., TN Sellers families.

We have some of the children of John Sellers proven. But, not the Nathan, Samuel Sellers kids proven.

I do see a civil war pension on appears to be your Thomas M. Sellers =
CW = T. M. SELLERS = Thomas M. Sellers B 9 Tennessee Cavalry. Private Private Union
PENSION = Thomas M. Sellers= Sarah E. Sellers, WD, Tennessee

Do you have copy, it might have relation mentioned or?

There is an 1812 paper on NATHAN SELLARS, PVT, MAJ JOHN CHILDS, CAPT REUBEN TIPTON, E TN VOL MTD INF, REGT FROM JEFF CO. They don't usually have much info, but, it just takes ONE piece of info to help. We need ALL of these documents to help us in JEFF CO, TN.
Hopefully anyone that has will send extractions and share them with us.

There were two SAMUEL SELLERS in TN war of 1812, but, couldn't tell the county.
SAMUEL SELLERS, PVT, LT COL RICHARD NAPIER, CO COMMANDER OMMITTED, INF
SAMUEL SELLERS, SGT COL SAMUEL WEAR, , CAPT JOSEPH CALLOWAY, MTD INF.

You might be able to do a search on the COL and be able to tell county. OR order the file and take a chance.

Thanks for sharing SELLERS.

RANDI, thank you.

I believe Someone should order these 1812 TN war records also. esp SAMUEL SELLERS. We only had a few in TN in 1812 that was correct age. (kinda looks like Two diff Samuel Sellers) SAMUEL SELLERS, PVT, LT COL RICHARD NAPIER, CO COMMANDER OMMITTED, INF
SAMUEL SELLERS, SGT COL SAMUEL WEAR, , CAPT JOSEPH CALLOWAY, MTD INF.

1807 JEFF CO, TN = SAMUEL SELLERS = witness a marriage (he would be old enough for war of 1812)

1820 we don't have Complete TN Census Records
SAMUEL SELLERS, PAGE 16 DICKSON ( was he one of them?msh)

AND probably others proven in minutes, etc.

Does Anyone have these TN WAR OF 1812 files? Please advise or send extractions.

Keep in touch. marie, iowa

The information noted below was abstracted from the military pension record of Thomas M. Sellers of Jefferson County, Tennessee. Other records indicate that Thomas was married at least three times. His first wife was Lettie/Letty (Bailey) Sellers who died in 1883. Thomas and Lettie/Letty are my great great grandparents. My great grandparents were Samuel H. and Sarah/Sally Rose/Roseanna (Sellers) Maston.

In 1898, a form was sent to Thomas M. Sellers of Piedmont, Jefferson County, Tennessee, from the Department of the Interior, Bureau of Pensions. It was requested that Thomas complete the form and return it to the pension agent with his next quarterly payment voucher. According to the completed form, Thomas was married to Sarah Elizabeth (Wiles) Sellers. The marriage was performed on October 5, 1890, at Jefferson County, Tennessee by a justice of the peace. His wife previous to Sarah Elizabeth was Elizabeth (Pierce) Sellers who died in Jefferson County, Tennessee, on an unspecified date. His living children were identified as: Cordelia Maried, born June 14, 1867; Sarah R., born December 3, 1872; Addie L(not legible), born May 1, 1876; Samuel M., born May 7, 1881; T. P., born January 21, 1888; and Lettie E., born October 29, 1891.

===Thomas M. Sellers was born June 26, 1840, in Jefferson County,
Tennessee. He died January 3, 1915, in Knox County, Tennessee. I
descend from Sarah/Sally Rose/Roseann Sellers, the daughter of Thomas,
who married Samuel H. Maston.

Randi,

This is not exactly on point (Sellers), but if you are looking for Maston information--you should probably search the Marston surname.  There is a good tracing of two Marston families--one from New England and one from VA (proven different by DNA testing) online.  I am descended through the VA line which seems to have changed the name from Marston to Mastin.  One of my "grandmothers" was Lucy Mastin b. abt. 1755 who married Mack McDaniel.  They left VA for KY. Their son, John McDaniel married Polly Sellers in Bracken Co., KY.  That is my Sellers connection.  The best researcher for the VA Marston/Mastin family is Barry Marston.
