The William Sellers in Claiborne Co., La. is the son of Thomas F. and
Nancy.  From his bio in" Biographical and Historical Memoirs of
Claiborne parish, Louisiana":
William Sellers, M.D. is a practical physician and surgeon of the
village of Summerfield, where he has done much to alleviate the ailments
to which the human body is heir.  He was born near Columbus, Ga.,
October 6, 1845, being the fifth of ten children, seven of whom are now
living:  E.T. (a cotton planter of Union Parish, La.), Amanda (widow of
S.C. Kennedy, who was a planter of this parish), Mattie(deceased) three
other daughters residing in Texas (their husbands being planters) R.N.(a
resident of Texas) and Dr. William.  The youngest two daughters died in
the last few years. The parents of these children, Thomas F. and
Nancy(Threadgill) Sellers, were born in N.C., the former being a planter
by occupation, and now deceased and his widow being a resident of La.
.............Dr. Sellers entered the medical dept. of the Louisiana St.
University of New Orleans (now Tulane, this being in 1868) and in 1870
graduated with distinction in a class of about 75.

It also lists his children and also says....."In March, 1863, Dr.
Sellers enlisted in Company I, Twelfth Louisiana Infantry Volunteers and
was ordered at once to the front, under Gen. Joe E. Johnston and took
part in battles as follows: Jackson(Ms) Resaca, Atlanta,Kenesaw Mt. (all
in Ga.) and was with Hood's expedition in Tn. and was afterward at
Kindston and Bentonville, N.c, the latter being the last engagement of
the war."

I have several pages of Sellers marriages from Alabama, N.C. and Union
Parish, La.
Also some cemetery records for Smyrna Cemetery in Union Parish.
Court records showing an inventory of Thomas Sellers estate.

Would you like for me to make copies and send to you via snailmail?
If so, I will need your address.

Although I am a native of South Texas, I am living in SLC at the time
just so I can do some research at the Genealogy Library. I just
discovered the other day that I can use the computers down there and
search through the Family Tree CD's.  Have you been to the Family Tree
web site. It lists all the cd's available to buy, but I can view them
down at the library.  There is one cd that has early NC, Ala. and
several other states on it.  I can sort out the Sellers names and send
you a copy if you like.

>Hi Sandy
        Yeah! There are about a dozen listed:

                Nancy Threadgill (William(4), John(3), John(2), Deodatus(1))
married Thomas F. Sellars in Russell County Ala. Jan 9,1838. Mancy was born:
ca 1820 in Anson Co. NC. She was the daughter of William and Nancy (Smith)
Threadgill. The 1850 census shows their family to be;

                        Thomas Sellers b:1838 in AL
                        Amanda Sellers b: 1839
                        Matilda Sellers b: 1842 in AL
        `               William Sellers b: 1844
                        Aletha Sellers b; 1846

        The ancestery of Nancy Threadgill is given back to Deodatus
Threadgill b:1657 in France and England.

        In addition: Willerbee Anna Threadgill married Leggette Sellers in
about  1940 in Anson Co NC. This late vintage union is  probably not of
interest to your inquiring party.

I found Thomas Sellers in Union Parish, La. on the 1870 census. He was
listed in the census index as Thomas P. Selers.

On the 1880 Union Parish cenus, Nancy Threadgill Sellers, widow of
Thomas is living with her son, Elisha Thomas along with two of E.T.'s

On the 1900 census Nancy is still living with E.T.  He is still in Union
parish but on the soundex he is Elisha T. and you can barely make out
the Sellers name.

I will send you copies of everything I have on the Sellers if you will
send me your snail mail address.


SANDY, thanks-
I did find Nancy 84 sc - 12/1815 on the 1900 Union Co,La soundex
living with Elisha T.
Never found on the 1880 soundex-
I would be interested in where her dad Wm Threadgill is in 1840?=
I see NO connection to Sellers in Anson before some came to Al/Ga-
but, need to check on them also and sometimes, this helps prove or know
which county to work on!

I used to live in Salt Lake City and moved back to Texas last summer.
My husband got sick in July and died in October and I am just getting
back to doing a little genealogy and am trying to get my email and
snailmail addresses updated.

My old email was:

My new address is:

My snailmail address is:  Sally Windrup
                                            316 Fitzgerald
                                            East Bernard, Texas  77435

East Bernard is about 50 miles southwest of Houston.  I haven't been in
to the genealogy library there since I have been back in Texas, but
after SLC, I am so spoiled.  Hopefully, I will get back into doing my
Sellers line soon.

I am descended from Thomas F. Sellers who married Nancy Mason.  I see
that you still have some of the postings I sent you online.
Hopefully I will be back to finding ancestors soon.
Sally Mills Windrup

I have just recently returned to doing genealogy after a two year lapse
due to several illnesses and deaths in my family.  I used to live in
Salt Lake City but am now in my native Texas.

I am descended from Thomas F. Sellers, born 23 April 1815 in NC.  He
married Nancy T. Threadgill (b.4 Feb 1817) in Russell County, Ala. 9
January 1838.  Thomas died 8 May 1871 in Union Parish, La. and is buried
at Smyra cemetery there.  Their daughter, Aletha (Letha) was my
great-great grandmother.  Letha was married to George McCall.

I have lots of information on the Threadgill's and a bit on Nancy and
Letha's brothers, Elisha Thomas, William and Riley and pictures of their
graves that I will be glad to share.

I don't have any information on Thomas F. and I would love to know who
his parents were, etc.  Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I used to use the name Sally Mills and my old email was thru Concentric

I still go by Sally, but have entered all queries with my real name
Barbara and my real last name Windrup.

My new email is:

and I live in a small farming community about 50 miles southwest of
Houston.  I have only been in to the Clayton Genealogy Library once but
will be going back soon and will be glad to offer my help on any of my
direct line or any of the Sellers who came to Texas.

Barbara (Sally) Windrup

SALLY - Welcome Home -
