From:               "ronnie sellers" <>              Seeking information on John Sellers. born about 1750-1760 in Pa. migrated to North Carolina with his brother George about 1770-1780. There were seven son's born to John Sellers and his wife (unkown). Their name's are Samual, Thomas, George, Jamess, William, John, and David. I don't no in what order these son's were born, except that William (my GGGGrandfather was the fifth son of John Sellers. And he was born near Columbia, South Carolina. I have more information on this branch of the Sellers/Sellars family tree . I would be glad to share. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Ronnie Sellers

RONNIE, thank you! - We are very much in need of connection when PA/NC-
worked on John/George SELLERS from Phillip SELLERS in PA, and tried to connect to 1810 NC area- NOT proven- SO would appreciate any info we can work on in this area.
Send some names/dates/ages/marriages - and PLACES , so we can see what they look like and perhaps we can connect to SOMEONE and go from there.
PA needs links/connections to other areas OR we won't be able to follow up!
We try and make a page for YOU and link to those counties where they are and went-
IT HELPS- but, still takes much input from you!
SEND what you can,
THANKS for sharing SELLERS, marie, iowa


Marie I'm sorry to say I don't have much information on John Sellers.
        My family received a copy of the Sellers/Sellars family tree from
Grandfather's cousin Frank Hyde Sellars in 1965. He ended with my
generation. It
seems the first part of his information came from his grandfather James
Sellers/Sellars as he remembered it. James Elias Sellers  was born July
20,1834 in
Alabama and died July 29,1923 in Shannon Co. Mo. His father was William
born about 1802 in or near Columbia, South Carolina and died December
in Shannon Co. Mo. His father (according to information handed down from
to son) was a John Sellers of North Carolina. This is the person I feel I
need to
        At this point it seems he "Frank Hyde Sellars" started research to
find our
ancestry. In the document I have He researched two families in Pa. The
family of
Philip Heinrich Soller who had a son Philip Henry, who had among other
two son's John and George, who migrated to North Carolina. The other family
from England. Samuel Sellers migrated from England to Phil. Pa. in 1681. He
had a
son Samuel, who had a son John who married Anne Gibson. They had among
other children, two son's John and George. He "Frank" said this John and
migrated to North Carolina, and we are descended from this, the English
Now you know why I am looking for John Sellers of NC.
        John Sellers and his wife (name unknown) had seven son's. They are
Samuel, Thomas, George, James, my ggggrandfather William, John, and David.
don't know in what order these son's were born except that William was the
