 I believe that you will find that the father of Asbury Sellers is John F. Sellers in Jackson Co, FL. Had land patent from Newnansville Land Office, FL. The tax rolls in Manatee Co., FL also show Asbury Sellers earlier than 1880. The R. in the Census list for 1880 stands for Rebecca Adelaide Sellers  my grandmother. Marriage records in Bevard Co., 1882 show marriage to James Buchanan Tumblin of Kenansville. Family tradition says she was a pupil in his classroom. They both died in 1918 from flu epidemic.
Good hunting,
Ron Bell
