son of
born 1866 and mother born 1873 TENN


Marie... When I put the Hallmark genealogy on the computer...she showed up...the parents of Ernest were Tennessee people and they had 7 children...the parents died in Oklahoma...I don't know if she was OK or TN....just a Sellers that I had in a lineage...I would say early 1900's is a good time for Ernest and Mary's marriage and probably TN. But all this is a guess.

I am working on the 1850 complete census (Sellers) of TN... I can put the county codes soon as I find the paper again... drowning in paper...Sandy

Wow, am I glad you wrote.  I just got back a week ago from there.  I tried
to meet with Margaret, but she wasn't home.  I left her a note.  Maybe on
vacation?  The landscapers were there (big property) but no family.  

I visited the Red Top Primitive Baptist Cemetery, Happy Valley Rd, Tallasee.
Saw what must be your relatives buried there.  Lots of Sellers.  As a matter
of fact I took pictures of several of the gravestones for another cousin,
Steve Rosen, who's g-g-grandmother's children married into the Sellers
family.  Also there is currently a man, Ben Whitehead, who lives on Bell
Branch Rd, which is off Happy Valley Rd, who married a Sellers.  He was born
1917.  Lives in the "backwoods."

These are the Sellers that a took pictures of.  Again, they are from Red
Top.  There MAY be more, I don't know.  There are three cemeteries in that
are:  Red Top, Boone, and some Missionary Church's cemetery:
