Hopefully you can understand this.  This family is so hard to trace and
much is assumed as to who belongs to whom:

Here goes:

Father Sellers had 3 sons:
Robert Sellers, Sr. of Burke Co., NC;
James T/Y Sellers that died circa 1805 Chatham co., NC;
John Sellers that we know nothing about.  Supposedly he had a mill somewhere.

First Son:
Robert Sellers, Sr. was born before 1735 (probably Scotland)and probably
died 1800-1810 in Burke County, North Carolina.  He possibly married Sarah
Unknown
Children of Robert Sr. and Sarah?:
1.  James Sellers died about 1820 Burke County, NC leaving widow, Charity
2.  Ruth Sellers married William Harris
3.  John Sellers born about 1758
4.  Elizabeth SEllers born about 1760 married 24 August 1780 Wilkes Co.,NC to Levi Jackson, Sr.
5.  Rebecca Sellers born 1762 married Moses Wilkerson, Sr.  she died 18 October 1834 Burke County, NC.
6.  Robert Sellers, Jr. born 10 March 1765 died 02 Nov 1827 Washington
County, Indiana.  He married Sarah Hall 29 Apr 1783, Burke Co., NC.
7.  Sarah Sellers born 1769 married Joshua Hall, Sr.
8.  Mary Sellers born 21 Jul 1774, Burke Co., NC married Micajah Hall Sr.
on 26 September 1796, Rutherford Co., NC.  She died 02 August 1858 in Todd Co., KY.
9.  Isaac Sellers born 17 December 1777, Burke Co., NC died 11 June 1848,
Gibson County, Tennessee.  He married Elizabeth Huddleston about 1797 in NC.
10.  Jacob Sellers born about 1779, Burke Co., NC died after 1811 in
Kentucky?; married Anna Scott 29 Jul 1800 Rutherford Co., NC

There could possibly be some unidentified children of Robert Sellers Sr. and Sarah.

Son #2:
James T/Y Sellers was born before 1735 perhaps in Scotland died about 1805
Chatham Co., NC.  He was married to Patience Parker? Booth? Raiborn?
Patience died in Maury County, TN in 1812 with her son-in-law Wiley Griffin tending the estate.
Children of James and Patience:

1.  James Sellers, II born about 1756 married about 1774 in North Carolina
to Unknown,  his second wife was Sarah Unknown, who was first married to
John Booker; Sarah Unknown and John Booker were the parents of Ann Booker
that married Samuel Crawford. (this makes James Sellers III and Ann Booker
step brother and sister)
2.  Robert Sellers Sr. born before 1765 married Sarah Bynum and died 1827-1829 in Maury County, Tennessee.
3.  Ruth Sellers born about 1768 NC married Isham Bilbrey.
4.  Isaac Sellers born about 1769 died 12 January 1830, Maury County,
Tennessee; he married Judith Johnson about 1800 in Chatham Co., NC
5.  John Sellers born about 1770 NC  and died about February 1824, Maury
County, Tennessee; married Elizabeth Hart;  These are the parents of Mary
Sellers that married Samuel Crawford after his wife, Ann Booker, died.
6.  Laird Sellers born 13 December 1771, Chatham County, NC married #1
Annie Hackney and #2 Elizabeth Goodwin.  He died 05 December 1862 in Moniteau County, Missouri.
7.  Daugher Sellers born before 1775 died before 1820 Maury County,
Tennessee;  she married Wiley Griffin.  Her name has not been identified.
8.  Rachel Sellers born about 1775, NC married 01 April 1791, Chatham
County, NC to John Hammock.  She probably died in Overton Co., Tennessee.
9.  Young Sellers born about 1784 Chatham Co., NC died after 1850 when he
was last found in Chatham Co., NC, in the household of his son-in-law, W.
J. Page and daughter Sarah Sellers Page;  Young married Elizabeth Hackney.

There could be other unidentified sons and daughters of James T/Y Sellers
and Patience (possibly a David Sellers and a Jacob Sellers).

The third son, John Sellers, we know nothing about.  He supposedly had a
mill somewhere.

=========

This is from family tradition on the line of Robert Sellers Sr. of Burke County, NC: I have not researched this line so I have nothing further to add: Robert Sellers, Sr. married Sarah Unknown - died Burke County, NC 1800-1810

son John Sellers, born about 1758 married Unknown

John had a son, James Sellers, born about 1792 Burke County, NC and died in Tennessee, who married an unknown Thompson

Children listed of James Sellers and Unknown Thompson:

Nathan Sellers James Sellers John Sellers Ester Sellers (Could this be Ruth E. Sellers?) Manerva Sellers

I don't have dates on any of the children. Robert Sellers, Sr.'s daughter, Mary Sellers, married Micajah Hall 26 September 1796 in Rutherford County, NC Robert Sellers, Sr.'s last son, Jacob Sellers, married Anna Scott 29 July 1800 in Rutherford County, NC I'm just grasping at straws but I remembered in my database that I had a Sellers married to an Unknown Thompson and they went to Tennessee.

James Sellers who died in Grainger County, TN, is of German descent. Robert Sellers Sr. of Burke County, NC and James T/Y Sellers of Chatham County, NC (known brothers) are Scotch-Irish-English. I know the James Sellers that died in Grainger County, TN, was in Chatham County, NC, but I have never found a connection.

Marie:

Piecing together the Robert Sellers/Sellars line is complicated, and
presents a great number of questions which I haven't found clear documentation
for.

>From what I can piece together so far, using what information I have
>been
able to locate at this point, Robert Sellars, Sr had 2 brothers, James and
John. The earliest records I find for them begin 1759/1760 in Orange Co., NC,
on land along Pine Tree Creek, off the Haw River. In 1771 this area of
Orange Co., NC was taken to form Chatham Co., NC, and the three Sellars brothers
are found listed as having land on New Hope Creek, Haw River and at times
designated Pine Tree Creek. They also held land on Terrell's Creek, Cool
Springs Creek, and Lick Branch of New Hope Creek. All this land is in close
proximity when viewing old Chatham Co., NC plat maps.

Robert and James Sellars served as court justices for Chatham Co., NC,
while brother John is found to have served as a constable/warden at one point. I
believe the brother James Sellars married a Patience Parker and never left
Chatham Co., NC.

Robert Sellars (Sr) in 1779 requested a 300 acre tract of land in
Washington Co., NC [TN}, on the south side of the Holstein river, which was recorded
in June 1780. When Sullivan Co., NC [TN] was created this land was recorded
as a grant for 267 acres. (Note that John Hall had also received a grant and
settled on the S. Holstein river, which was along Shoate's Ford, just
outside of present day Bristol , TN.)

I believe that John Sellars, the brother of Robert Sellars, Sr made a land
grant request for land in Burke Co., NC in 1779 also, which was not recorded
until 1787:

1787 Aug. 7 - Burke Co., NC - John Sellers
Land Grant Information
Acres: 300
Grant No: 1038
Issued: Aug. 7, 1787
Surveyed:
Warrant No:
Entry No: 1844
Entered: Jan. 25, 1779
Book No: 65
Page No: 395
Location: On both sides of Glade Creek

I think this John Sellars may have also claimed land in TN, and may have
died in either Burke Co., NC or in the NC land which became TN prior to 1787,
when his estate was being settled:

1787 Dec 8- Davidson Co., TN - File No. 705, Anthony Hart, Assignee of
Heirs of John Sellers (Military Warrant No. 2763)

Personal Names
Hart, Anthony
Sellers, John
Sellers, Isaac

It also appears that 1787 is when Robert Sellars, Sr moved Burke Co., NC
from Sullivan Co., TN:

1787 Oct 20 - Deed of Warranty; Robert Sellers of Burke Co., NC to Edward
Pointer of Sullivan Co., NC 60 pounds for 200 acres in Sullivan Co., NC on
the south
side of the Holston River out of a patent #268 of 300 acres. Witness:
Joshua Hall and
John Sellers Sr. [Sullivan Co., TN Deed Book 1:280]

1787 Oct 29 - Deed of Warranty Edward Pointer for Isaac Anglin 80 pounds
Virginia money for 200 acres in Sullivan County on the south side of the
Holston River.
Beginning on the bank of the river and imaginary and conditional line
between Walter
Greer and Edward Pointer; granted to Robert Sellers in 1785 by patent and
then
conveyed to Edward Pointer; signed David E. Pointer: Witness: John Woods
and Elijah
Cox. [Sullivan Co., TN Deed Book 1:279]

(This Isaac Anglin appears on the 1790 Burke Co., NC census.)

Since I haven't done any indepth research into the lie of James Sellars who
married Charity, I cannot tell you exactly who the James Sellars of James
is, who is listed in the road order in 1795:

"Jury ordered to view and make road nearest and best way from Cain Creek
uptoward's Farris's old place about two miles to open a road that Rutherford
Court ordered to be cut through the Whiteside settlement: John Hall, Sr,
William McDaniel, William Morrison, Jr, Robert Sellars Sr, Moses Wilkinson,
Elihu Hicks, Joshua Hall, John Hall, Jr, John Pierson, James Sellars of James,
John Water, Michael Derryberry, John Morrison, John Sellars Jr, J.E.
Erwin, C.C." (Records of Burke Co., NC- ed. Edith Warren Huggins-Vol. II, p. 142
-Year 1795)

>From information on josephmartinchapter.org/sellers.html - James
>Sellers
was born in 1759 in Chatham county NC. On November 2, 1779, Sellers enlisted
in the NC militia in Chatham County. His only major battle was the battle of
Guilford courthouse fought on March 16, 1781 fought in Guilford county NC.
After Guilford, Sellers moved to Burke county NC. Today Burke county lists
Sellers name as one of the revolutionary war soldiers from that county on a
plaque in the Burke county Courthouse In the 1790's Sellers moved to Grainger
county TN. Seller's wife is unknown. It is believed he married someone in
Grainger County. Sellers first son James was born in Grainger County. Sellers
died on December 20, 1843 and was buried in Grainger County.

Any ideas which James Sellers moved to Grainger Co., TN?

I am not sure if this is James Sellers who married Charity, and could be
the son of Robert Sellers, Sr, or perhaps a nephew.

I don't have a birth date for James Sellers who married Charity and he had
died before 1820 in Burke Co., NC. Not having a marriage date for Robert
Sellers, Sr I can't estimate when he possibly fathered his first child. I have
found Robert Sellers (Sr) serving as a chain carrier on a number of land
surveys in 1760, 61 but not specifically owning land until 1762/63, and I don't
know what his birth date was.

It's a quandary.

Several other families who appear in earlier Orange/Chatham Co., NC records
appear later as neighbors of the Sellers in Burke Co., NC. So there may
have been other Sellers relatives who also accompanied them on this move. One
connection I find very interesting is the inter connection with Thomas and
Kizziah Raborn:

6 Feb 1771 Robert Sellars sold 212 a to Thomas Raiborn. Land was on Phils
Cr. waters of New Hope
Deed bk. 3, p. 549, 6 Feb 1771, Thomas Raiburn of Orange, farmer, to Robert
Sellars of same, farmer, sixty pounds, 212 acres on Phils Cr. waters of New
Hope, begin at a red oak, S 130 rods to a black jack, E 262 rods to a red
oak, N 110 rods to a hicory, a straight course to first station, part of a
tract from James Crow to Raiburn 20 December 1762; signed: Thomas (R) Raiburn,
Kisiah (+) Raiburn; witness: Jas. Watson, John Piper acknowledged July Term
1771.

20 Oct 1771 Robert Sellars sold 150 a t Thomas Raiborn. Land was on branch
of Morgan's Cr. waters of New Hope
Deed bk. 3, p. 597, 20 Oct 1771, Thomas Raiborn of Orange, planter, to
Robert Sellars of same, planter, thirty five pounds, 150 acres, on a branch of
Morgans Cr. waters of New Hope, begin at a red oak near the creek, a N course
to a red oak on Sellar´s cor., along his line to a spanish oak at the
creek, down crek to a white oak, cross ridge to a hicory on the creek, down creek
to beginning; signed Thomas (R) Raibbon, Kisaza (+) Raibbon; witness: Thos.
Kirkland, Richd. (R) Hely; acknowledged July Term 1772.

Thomas Raburn had died prior to 1790 in Burke Co., NC, leavign his widow
Kizziah:

1790 Burke Co., NC census (Morgan District)

4th Company

Raybon, Kizzl 1 female

Their son Hodge A. Raburn was the 4th Sheriff of Burke Co., NC, later
moving to Haywood Co., NC and becoming a State Senator.

I believe, if my memory is correct that it was William Morrison, Sr who
served as the first sheriff for Burke Co., NC, and may be the progenitor of
the Morrison's who appear in records with the early Burke Co., NC Sellers. I
have not done enough research into the Morrison family to see how all these
families may intersect.
