I stumbled across your Sellers Family page and have a question
Actually, after looking at the messages I think that I may have
own mystery. However, being the Sellers 'expert' I would appreciate
input you may have.
I am a descendant of Shite (his name according to census records)
Susannah Sellers listed in the Henry Co. Alabama
1860 census. "Shite" is
listed in the 1850 Henry Co census as S.W. Sellers. I assume
sometime between 1860-1870, as Susan Sellers is listed as the head
household in teh 1870 census.
Since discovering that S.W. Sellers was my ggg-grandfather several
ago I have attempted to locate his parents (at least father) with
According to census records, S.W. is from N.C. and was born abt.
looking at the Sellers that located to Henry
Co, AL, I assumed they must
related somehow. I even thought that Mathew MUST be his father!
no proof as the name Shite doesn't seem to exist except in the 1850
Then, tonight, as I was looking through all the Sellers names I had
thought! Maybe his name wasn't Shite. Maybe the census
he heard Shite - maybe he (my ggg-gf) said S. Wright! I noticed
Mathew and Jane has a son named Wright that appears to be born after
D. (another Henry Co transplant) which would be about right with
the ages. Also, S.W.'s oldest son named one of his children
I guess you can tell I'm a little perplexed as to the origin of "Shite"
Sellers. My questions to you are: Other than the
mention of Shite in
Henry Co census have you heard of him? What ever became of
Mathew and Jane's son? If you have him listed with wife and
I'm definately wrong. However, if you have nothing on Wright
Thanks for letting me share this with you. I appreciate ANY
help you can
give me. Also, I went ahead and signed up on the Sellers e-mail
