The James Sellers of Lawrence County, TN in 1840 and 1850 ends up in Maury
County, TN by 1860. Maury County, TN, is where most of the sons of James
T/Y Sellers that died in Chatham County, NC circa 1805 ended up shortly
after the death of James T/Y Sellers in Chatham County, NC.

All of this is from early family history and I have been unable to trace
this line. Could Ester Sellers be Ruth E. Sellers?

There was a Mary "Polly" Sellers born about 1804, daughter of John Sellers and Elizabeth Hart.  John was a son of James and Patience Sellers from Chatham Co
NC.  Mary married Samuel Crawford 6 January 1829 in Maury Co TN, but they had
troubles and Mary ran away from home a number of times.  Crawford petitioned
the Tennessee legislature on 27 September 1833 against Mary and presented
depositions by Dickson Sellers and James Sellers who supported Crawford's
position.  James Sellers testified that Crawford's first wife was his sister and Mary was his cousin.  This was James III, and his sister Anne had married
Crawford 23 February 1804.  Anne died 1828.  Dickson (Dixon) Sellers was brother of James III.

DEMASTUS= Demastus@aol.com
- am sending your info to our SELLERS group - we have members
working on the Sellers from Chatham Co, NC to Maury Co, Tn.
Do you have ANY info on Daniel Booker and Sarah Sellers= where married,
where first child born? I see a will of 1783 Chatham Co, NC listed
(don't have copy-need) is this same one? Thank You for sharing any info
on them - marie, iowa



JOAN and DEMASTUS - Thanks for taking the time and info to walk thru these
SELLERS -

Read some more of the county minutes and land transfers from Robert
SELLERS to Bingums/etc - No source of relationship - One was a gift to? (will post to
Sellers Page)

HOWEVER, I find tonite, I do NOT have copy of original 1850/60 maury co,
tn Census -
have been using the index!=Not near as Good - Need original!
THIS census should show if M.A.SELLERS 1804/6 has a crippled child=?
IF MARY/ANN SELLERS CRAWFORD assumed her single name?
I DO Not have the OTHER pages of this Divorce - They are NOT in the
extractions of Divorces!

SOMEONE send! or tell where to obtain=

And if Mary Ann SELLERS/married 1829 Samuel Crawford is the daughter of
ISAAC SELLERS and JAMES and DICKSON SELLERS are sons of ROBERT SELLERS = we would have a cousin

AND if JAMES SELLERS is  son of ROBERT SELLERS who married SARAH BYNUM
BOOKER who already had dau ANN BOOKER (= their l/2 sister) that married Samuel
Crawford lst and she died 1828=Same Mother

WE are NOT talking the Same Mary/Ann=two different gals=BOOKER and SELLERS

Would Prove Your History - YOU do understand How I need explanations,
thanks for patience! I am sure this will help our SELLERS group also -

ANY COMMENTS WELCOMED!

 FROM BILL        BTimmons@aol.com
    I have read the various postings about the Sellers family that located in
Maury County, TN, and here's my two cents worth:  James T. Sellers married
about 1755 Patience (I'd bet a quarter her surname was Parker) probably in
Chatham Co NC.  They had: James Sellers (Jr.), Robert Sellers, Ruth
Sellers, Isaac Sellers, John Sellers, Laird Sellers, Unidentified daughter Sellers,
Rachel Sellers, and Young Sellers.

James Sellers (Jr.) married Sarah Booker and their daughter Anne Booker
Sellers married 1804 Samuel Crawford.
He married second Mary "Polly"Sellers in 1829 and they were divorced. Apparently Mary ran away from home a number of times, so Crawford petitioned the Tennessee Legislature on 27 Sept 1833 for a divorce.  He presented depositions by Dickson Sellers and James Sellers who supported his position.  Crawford married third Sarah Caughran.

John Sellers (son of James & Patience and married to Elizabeth Hart) had a
daughter Mary "Polly" who was second wife of Samuel Crawford.

Isaac Sellers (son of James & Patience and married to Judith Johnson) had
a daughter Mary Ann Sellers, born 17 Nov 1804 and died 12 June 1887.  She
never married.
In 1850 Mary A. Sellers, age 44, is living with her sister Lucy
and her husband E.C. Alexander's  family.
In 1860 M.A. Sellers, age 54, is living alone in Maury County.  This gets confusing because Mary Ann had a sister Milly Sellers who also never married and lived with relatives.

Hope this helps some.  Bill Timmons

        Elton Hatley <johat@usit.net>
     I just want to add that Anne Booker who married Samuel Crawford was not

     Marie,  I have just read the answer to you from BTimmons.  Anne Booker was
daughter of Daniel Booker and Sarah Bynum.  After Daniel's death, Sarah
married a Sellers, probably Robert.  She was born Sarah Bynum, daughter of
Luke Bynum and Martha Patterson.  The Bynums, Bookers and Sellers were all
from Chatham Co., NC.  Joan HatleyAt 09:39 PM 3/21/99 -0600,

Marie, I have Nancy Sellers married Robert Craig on 04 January 1832, Maury

Perhaps Mary Sellers, daughter of John Sellers and Elizabeth Hart, married
a Craig after she was married to Samuel Crawford.

             BTimmons@aol.com
Thank goodness for Georgia Fletcher who saved me from typing all the
information on Samuel Crawford's petition for a divorce from Mary Sellers
and depositions by Dickson and James Sellers, and James Rutledge.  Thanks,
cuz. I found this information in Jill Garrett's MAURY GENEALOGIST, Vol.3-1974 and
reprinted 1987 by Polly C. Warren.

Samuel Crawford appears on many Maury Co TN lists with Sellers (juries,
road crews, etc.).  He also was captain of a company of Maury men who served in
the first Seminole War (1818).

Also, thanks to Georgia who pointed out that the record shows Robert Craig
married Nancy Sellers, not Mary.  License 2 January 1832 and Minister's
return 4 January.  The cemetery report has her as consort of Robert Craig. I have
a lot of admiration for Marise Lightfoot & Evelyn Shackelford who wrote THEY
PASSED THIS WAY in 1964.  But they, like we, sometimes make mistakes.
Here appear to be the options: Mary Craig was not a daughter of John &
Elizabeth Sellers (and if she were born in SC per the 1850 census it seems unlikely
she was a daughter of John); John & Elizabeth had a daughter Jane who was born
circa 1802 and untraced by me who may have been named Mary Jane (unlikely
since sis was Mary); or Laird Sellers had a daughter, Mary, also untraced
by me.  At any rate, it seems that Mary Craig was not Mary Sellers Crawford
remarried if the children in the 1850 census are hers.  Regards, Bill
Timmons

I Never found Mary Sellers CRAWFORD on another census - I checked MS also,
where Dickson SELLERS went. Some of mine are Soundex - Would need the original
Maury Co census to check. And see if this Mary SELLERS, dau of Isaacs was divorced
on the census? Has anyone checked?
I did she a Milly SELLERS on one of the land deeds - I wonder if she is
the Mary =M.D.SELLERS 1817/1865 same cemetery Timmons? as Mary Ann , Isaac and
Judith.
Evidently, Mary Sellers Crawford didn't have any kids - the crippled child
in newer minutes indicate it was Samuel's child? Perhaps Mary couldn't have
children - if marriage was consummated? So, still possibilities!

NOW if DICKSON SELLERS was raised by Mary SELLERS CRAWFORDS dad = One of her brothers died ? (She is an AUNT of Dickson Sellers)

I was going to look up Dickson Sellers age =
and James Sellers age=

NOW if James SELLERS sister (1/2 sister-same mother) was Anne Booker Crawford - his
dad was Robert SELLERS and Sarah Bynum? and if he was cousin to Mary Sellers
CRAWFORD .

This is probably Isaac SELLERS 1769 and wife JUDITH 1772/1847 living with
son JOHN SELLERS ? or Isaacs first name was John? Did Isaac Sell land to John
Sellers right before 1830? Deeds did Not show relationship, but did give names and a
couple indicated DOWER.

NOW, We do we have SELLERS connected to BYNUMS or ? before the
Booker/Bynum
marriage or are this kids named SELLERS due to the fact Robert
SELLERS/Sarah Bynum
Booker raised Anne Booker from shortly after she was born?

The Daniel Booker born 1755 /1782 who had daughter Annie 1782 who married
Samuel Crawford, etc.
This Daniel BOOKER had sister Patience.
This Daniel BOOKER is supposed to be son of John Booker died 1761 and
Patience died 1763/4  , both Orange Co, NC, which Chatham Co was made from. My
extractions of this will shows wife, Patience, heirs, James, Patience.
But if Daniel Booker was born 1755 and parents died in 1761/1763 - Someone
Else raised him?

Georgia, thanks for message about Mary M.D. Sellers.  I believe you are
absolutely correct in that William Sellers probably married 4 times.  Mary
M.D. surely was his first wife.  It is likely only Sellers related to Isaac
were buried in the Timmons cemetery.  Mary M.D. is buried next to Patience
Sellers who (except for two unidentified graves) is next to Isaac who is
next
to Judith.  This section has Sellers family.  The tombstone reads Mary M.S.
Sellars born January 7, 1847, died October 7, 1865, age 18 years 9 months.
Often overlooked is the following inscription "and her little infant
daughter
Laura Ann Sellers born April 15, 1865 Aged 3 months & 27 days."  So Laura
Ann
died in August and Mary in October probably from complications of birth
delivery.  Mary and William Sellers started their family soon after
marriage
(4 July 1864).

It could be that Anna Brown who married William Sellers 12 March 1868 was
Matilda Ann Brown.  I don't have easy access to the 1860 census but will
put it on my list of "to do."  Best wishes, Bill



             William Sellers of Maury Co., TN

        From: GEORGIA
             chickflet <chickflet@aristotle.net>
   Bill and all,
Here is my supporting evidence about William Sellers, son of James Y.
Sellers, son of Isaac Sellers and Judith Johnson.

William Sellers married Mary D. Sanders on 14 July 1864.  I think she is
the Mary M. D/S Sellers buried in Timmons Cemetery.
William Sellers married #2 Anna Brown on 12 March 1867, Maury County,
Tennessee.
William Sellers married #3 Mary L. Oakley on 28 December 1872, Maury
County, Tennessee.
William Sellers married #4 Mary R. White on 05 January 1880, Maury County,
Tennessee.

1870 Maury County, TN census:
William Sellers         24 M W farmer
Matilda                 27 F W keeps house
Calvin                   2 M W at home
Isham      [April]      1/12 M W

1880 Maury County, TN census:
William Sellers          34 M W crippled
Mary R.                  26 F W
Willie                    1 M W
A. E. T. Oakley          53 F W TN, VA, VA mother-in-law
(Mrs. Oakley is probably his former mother-in-law, who still lives with him
even though he has just recently married Mary R. White in 1880; Willie, age
1,  would be her grandson)

1880 Maury County, TN census:
Gilbert Brown            47
Jane                     49 (sister
Collie Sellers           12 nephew

Collie Sellers would be Calvin Sellers and living with his uncle, a brother
to Matilda Anna Brown, who probably died 1870-1872.

I have Peter Miller in my line related by marriage.  Don't know if they
have anything to do with your Peter Miller lines but here they are:

My Grt.grt. grandfather
John A. Downey (1838-1883)married Rebecca E. Humphreys (1838-1914)
Rebecca's parents were William Harvey Humphreys(1809-1866) and Delilah Jane Miller(1806-1873) Delilah's parents were
Peter Miller (Nov.1783-Jul1865)  and Mary Sellers(Aug 1785-Dec 1872)

Their children:
Delilah Jane Miller m. William H. Humphreys
Eli Miller m. Grizzell Carson
David W. Miller m. Rachel Unk
William C. Miller m. Amanda Armentrout
Solomon Miller m. Sarah Unk
Mary Ann Miller m. James Aiken
Sarah G. Miller
Mary F. Miller (see Fairview Cem. records pg. 1)

>From Wash Co., TN Obits:
    Vol. 1-- Mary F. Miller b. 22May1827
                                    d. 07Nov1874 Locust Mount
                Survived by sister Mrs. Pouter or Pouder of Johnson City,
TN
                  Parents-Peter & Mary Miller, 3 miles East of Jonesboro,

                  Also names a J.C. Thompson

Don't know if this will be of any interest to you and haven't researched
any further into the Peter Miller fam. as this is a maternal line.

Hope you can add this to your Peter Miller data.

Below is some info I got out of your family history, and I am interested in
Jethro Brown Cathey -- who is likely to be the one listed below.

Do you know what this is referencing?

Any info would be appreciated.

Thanks.
E. T. Jackson  (see below)

WHO is this WILLIAM SELLERS???(msh)
  1819     "                David Hines dec'd sale = John Sellers
1820     "                 Jethro Brown dec'd sale = Wm Sellers, Bynum,
Chandler, Pleasant Crow, Sam Crawford, Micah Brooks, Wm Craig


My great grandfather was directly from Tennessee, but he was a descendant of
one of two Cathey brothers (I believe) who came to Virginia in 1700s from
Scotland or Ireland.  One of these brothers was sent to North Carolina as the
king's magistrate, and it was either his son or grandson who married General
Rutherford's daughter (the General of the Revolutionary War.  This son-in-law
(a Cathey) died.  Gen Rutherford was given a land grant in Duck River, TN
area and he took his family (including his daughter who was the wife of the
Cathey who died).  Jethro Brown Cathey (my great grandfather) is of that
lineage.

I have very little info, and the above is sketchy.

Thanks for responding to my inquiry.



GRANMIMS, Thanks, I didn't answer your question too good.

BUT, were YOUR CATHEYS in MAURY CO, TN?
WHERE were they  in NC before they came here?
WITH this possibility of an Older connection. - Would help prove some
families?

THE 1820 WILL of JETHRO BROWN, dec'd
THESE people bought at his estate sale =
Wm Sellers, Bynum,Chandler, Pleasant Crow, Sam Crawford, Micah Brooks,
Wm Craig
==
The TN will book lists him as JETHRO BROWN also. BUT, maybe worth
looking at copy of original?
