I am new to the list, but I have been researching Hile SELLERS off and
a long time. William Washington was my great grandfather. Hile, I believe
was short for Jehiel (or Jahiel) I found him with his parents in the 1850
census for Cherokee Co. North Carolina.
Parents are David SELLERS , 43 yrs. and Clarrissa, 41 yrs.
Children: Susanna B. 20 yrs., Jane S. 19 yrs., Mary A. 17 yrs., Ann C. 16
yrs., Jehiel 15 yrs., Elizabeth 13 yrs., Felix 11 yrs., James 9 yrs., Enos M.
7 yrs., George 2 yrs.
This census says that they are all born in NC. The 1870 & 1880 census say
Hile was born in Georgia. I've seen a lot of conflicts in the birthplaces in
I have seen a genealogy in Family Tree Maker that says that David
was Born in
PA and died there as well. It also says that Clarrissa's last name was MOORE.
I have not proved this yet, and might not even try except that FTM also gives
Clarissa's brothers and sisters names and they are very similar to David and
That family: James MOORE 1779, Jane (Jenie) STEVENSON 1782, Clarissa
(Clearsy) 1810-1878, Avalene 1812, Jehile 1814, Terzy 1816, Albert 1819,
Marcella Jane 1823.
If anyone has more information or different information, I would love to hear
Hi Vicki and others,
I have Amanda's maiden name: Amanda M. LOYD. She is the
daughter of John
LOYD and Narcissa SPIVEY. John and Narcissa had 15 children! John's parents
are Thomas Lord LOYD and Martha STALLCUP. Narcissa's parents are William
SPIVEY and Nancy LEDFORD. That's as far back as I go with Amanda's genealogy.
As far as sources go, I believe that my grandmother gave the information on
Amanda's name to my mother. Amanda and Hile are my GGGrandparents. The
information on Amanda's ancestors has mainly come from the Ancestral File at
the LDS Church. Some of this I have verified with census and marriage
I hope this helps. If you would like more info--let me know.
I do have
children's names and some census information. But I need to get it organized.
SUSAN - you have been so helpful on this family - BUT, I don't believe
you have sent us your family chart connecting to this family -
Have now made a page for you and tried to link you to the counties you
are proven to -
PLEASE , send a simple - small chart - NAMES/DATES/PLACES are most
when/where any SELLERS did anything!
ANY census you have posted are VERY important.
WE can use info and post contributed by your name/etc
please review, send info and advise new links to counties,etc (started
this after you had sent info to Susan , )
