respectively
given to them provided said funds

in consequence of such dissatisfaction
disaffection attempts to break it as a penalty for this so doing they

intended  to have mentioned in
the proper place I now make provisions for him by directing the payment of
fifty dollars by my Executors in the

This will was fairly easy to read and understand,  but there were a few
exceptions. Where I was unable to decipher the
handwriting, I typed what it appeared to be and put a question mark (?) at
the
end of that word.
Micah’s brother James was probably my GGGrandfather, but so far I have
been
unable to prove this. Edgar Sellers

SKETCHES OF TENNESSEE'S PIONEER BAPTIST PREACHERS
1775-1875, volume 1 by J.J.BURNETT,D.D.

MICAH H. SELLERS born in NC, JAN 13, 1786
17TH YEAR he professed faith in Christ.
1809 or thereabout after a protracted delay and painful kicking against
the goads, he began his ministry, with little education and under very
"unfavorable circumstances,"but with a keen sense of responsibility and
a fixed purpose to qualify himself as best he could by the study of the
Scriptures for his high calling as a minister of Christ.
Little is known of his early ministry, which was in NC, but we are told
that he had a "strong mind, an indomitable will, great energy, and
ardent zeal for the cause of Christ;
that he was an original thinker, and at length attained to a great
knowledge of the Bible.

Somewhere between 1812 and 1815 he came to TN, settling in the Hiwassee
district. He was ordained in 1820 by Little Emory Church. 1829 he was
chosen Moderator and was reelected  for 38 yrs with the exception of two
years Died Nov 23, 1870 - 85 yrs.
=================
Someplace I read where Michael was in war of 1812 - But, I Never could
find any papers to document this. It may be in the papers where it tells
about the Iron Works and Wassons house that is still standing in that
area As I haven't relocated them either.

Obituary of Elder Allen D. MORRISON - Roane Co., TN.

Typed as written:

SOURCE:  HIWASSEE BAPTIST ASSOC.  74th Session held at HIND’S VALLEY
MEETING HOUSE, Roane Co., TN. on Friday before the fourth Sat. in Sept.
1896 and following days.

Elder Allen D. MORRISON, son of John & Mary _____ MORRISON, was born
Feb.
19, 1818.  In the then existing condition of moral, literacy and
political
affairs of the country he had but little opportunity to acquire an
education in the proper sense, but his early training was to use the
axe,
the mattock, the hoe and the plow.  He was united in marriage to Miss
Nancy
SELLERS, dau. of Eld. Micah SELLERS, Aug. 28th, 1838.  to them were born

four sons and one dau.  In 1851 he claimed to have been saved by Grace,
and
lived under  the teaching of the scriptures, as his guiding star as
interpreted by the Holy Spirit.  soon after his change he joined the
Church
of Christ at Shilo, being one of the finest singers of the  times he
seemed
to be a necessary acquisition to the church as a leader in church music
and
other devotions.  In 1865 he had made advances in the ministry as a
licentiate to the extent that the church set him apart for ordination to

the full work of the ministry by a presbytery, call for that purpose,
composed by elders M. H. SELLERS, Asa NEWPORT and J. B. McCALLON by
whom,
after prayer and impositiod (typed as written) of hands, he was declared
to
be a minister of the gospel clothed with full power to administer all
the
ordinances of the church under its direction.  His ministry continued
through nearly thirty years.

His preaching partook of the doctrinal line of thought mixed with the
practical, although he had an excellent personal experience, it was not
in
the main interwoven largely as an element in his pulpit ministrations.
During his ministry he was pastor of several of the finest churches in
our
Association.  Ten or fifteen years before his decease, his wife preceded

him to the grave.  not long after that sad event, his health began to
fail
and feeling the necessity of companionship he was again married to Miss
Elizabeth HACKLER, Mar. 21, 1886.  Who still as a lonely widow mourns
her
loss.  His last years were spent by him in weakness, not so much of
suffering as the breaking up of vitality.  He passed away, not
unexpectedly, as if in the peaceful slumbers of an infant, on the 17th
of
March, 1896, a little more than seventy eight years of age.  His funeral

services were held at Macedonia meeting house near where he lived,
conducted by Bro. J. L. WALLER, after which, his remains were interred
in
the cemetery at Macedonia, near Union X Roads, Roane Co., TN.  The
church
at Macedonia appointed a committee to prepare resolutions expressive of
the
high steem in which he was held by the church and by the citizens of
the
community, and recorded in the church book.  Committee:  J. L. WALLER,

Marie, I do not have any 1860 census info on Jones. All that I have
extracted
is all the various Sellers spellings. I do show that Micah H. Jones is one
of
three children  of Mary/Polly Sellers (b abt 1821) and James Jones. They
were
married on 28 Oct 1837 in Roane Co. The other two children that I have
listed
are: George G. Jones and Artimis Jones. I quickly reviewed Dorothy
Moneymaker's book this morning and I could not find a reference to Micah H.
Jones. I do show Newton M. Sellers living next to Micah H. in the 1860
census
and Mariah Jones (12) is living in his house with his wife and children.
>From Dorothy S. Moneymakers book: James Jones was a signer of the petition
in
1801 to divide Knox C. into what became Roane Co. He was on the 1805 Roane
Co. tax rolls. In 1875 James Jones' heirs (children/grandchildren) were
listed as Catharine (wed Martin Watson dec.), Mariah (wife of Wilson
Harvey),
Martha (Gholston) and George W. Jones. Dorothy states here that it is
impossible to distinguish between children grandchildren and spouse, but
the
following names are also listed: James M. Jones and wife Eliza C., Nancy E.
(Jones) Wheat and husband Jesse J., Isaac W. McKinney and wife Hannah or
Mauda M., Henderson Moore and wife Martha, W. Hutson Van or Dun and wife
Eliga R. and John W. Jones and wife Emsley J. These were the grand children
of James Jones. The above is directly from the book.
I am planning on going to the library on Mon. if I find anything more I
will
pass it on.
I did not document where I found the info on Micah H. Jones and his brother
and sister, but I know it didn't come out of thin air. Later, Ed Sellers
PS: I am attaching a list of all decendants of Micah H. Sellers that I have
listed in my d/b.

CINDY - Very interested in making a Chart on these families, in Burke Co,
NC to
TN counties-

WE NEED ages from the1800/ 1810/1820 census of  (Ibelieve)  BURKE CO ,  NC=
to CONNECT to 1820 land/church records of TN=
AND to connect to ages on 1830 census

WE have SELLERS here in TN  BEFORE 1820=in church records=AND Land records=
BELIEVE posted on the MEIGS, RHEA, pages =

BUT, CHARITY SELLERS, widow of JAMES SELLERS? is still listed in
1820 BURKE CO , NC with kids =

 CHARITY SELLERS   *1 male 16/26 (1794/1804)
                                      **1 male 26/45  (1775/1794
                                    ***1 female over 45 (bef 1775)
*Is this Cain died 1826 Roane Co, Tn? apparently without a wife?
**Is this John with land here in 1820 and in minutes, but, not on census?
***Is this CHARITY SELLERS went to Rhea Co,Tn ca 1826?

======

1810 BURKE CO, NC (NEED WORK ON THESE FAMILIES)

JAMES SELLERS 04100-30100 (doesn't look right or missing info?
This IS the way posted - But you couldn't be parent age 1784
and have 4 kids born 1800!?msh)

SO WHO / WHAT FAMILY IS THIS = IDEAS? please send
If Not son James, Who? Ideas wanted
could this be son James born 1784/1794?

page 122
1 male 16-26 = 1784/1794
4 males 10-16 = 1794/1800
3 females under 10 = 1800/1810
1 female 16-26 = 1784/1794
======
MICHAEL SELLERS 1765/1784 = listed separate family
WILLIAM 1765/1784= listed separate family
=====
IF SAME family = 7 males
(Cain has 6 Males = 5 brothers plus possible brother Sampson ON his WILL of
1826)
=====
CAINS PARENTS had to be born Before 1760/1765
AND if he was one of the younger kids born ca 1794/1804
MOTHER  BORN after 1744/54

By using the ages on the 1830 McMinn and  Rhea Co's TN
we have possibly brothers of CAIN SELLERS will of 1826 Roane Co, TN =

MICAH 1785 NC
WILLIAM 1780/90
ISAIAH 1790/1800
JAMES 1800/1810
?SAMPSON 1800 NC
====
JOHN 1775/1794 (alive in 1826) NOT PROVEN or died before 1830=Where?

SISTER=EUNICE PEARSON=
SISTER=MARY THOMPSON=
======
THESE would NOT be the Older members on wills in Burke Co, NC -
Just the last few years before they left Burke Co, NC to TN
=====
My deeds here in 1810/20 = don't show Description of LAND
Does Anyone have?
We Need to Know where this JAMES or Charity SELLERS land was located and
sold to
= as posted earlier
===
NOW we also have on 1810 BURKE CO, NC census =
JAMES SELLERS over 45 , born before 1765
with 4 males born 10/16 = 1794/1800
and 1 male born 16/26 = 1784/1794
and 1 female born 10/16= 1794/1800
and 1 female over 45 , born before 1765

BUT, this family DOES NOT have 2 females to equal sisters of Cain SELLERS? (unless married before 1810,msh)
I/we haven't proven their ages?=
sister Eunice Pearson,  living in 1826
sister Mary Thompson, living in 1826
======
I KINDA THOUGHT this CENSUS was REV WAR JAMES SELLERS living in Burke Co, NC ca
1812 and to GRAINGER CO, TN ca 1812
=====
I SEE SOME others don't think so = WHERE is he? = HIS pension records state
he was in BURKE CO, NC ca 1812 and to GRAINGER CO, TN
AND he has Land in Grainger Co, TN in 1815
====
MAYBE COMPARE with 1800 CENSUS? =
http://www.netins.net/showcase/sellerfamily/ncburke.htm

I AM HOPING someone else will do some charts on these families =
I think Some Done?
Maybe Check Ages of Their Kids vs these census, et
and ADVISE
esp, with any documents in County/States
Thanks for Sharing and Any Ideas

Since I am the one who so adamantly wants James and Charity Sellers to be
Micah's parents <grin> I will attempt to chart some of this in an attempt
to
provide evidence one way or the other. I have been told there is such a
status in genealogy as "proof by association" when you cannot locate
documents that prove anything, but you find a load of evidence that these
folks lived, migrated, and intermarried together, then you can cautiously
say "I think they are related." So I will work on charting these ages, etc.
However, I am starting back to work for the Census Bureau on Wednesday and
will have much less time for the next three weeks. So bear with me.

I am aware that there are some discrepancies in the ages of family members.
There are also some children unaccounted for. But children did die easily
in
those days, and census records are not reliable/consistent as to age, so I
will see what shows up. A good example of census errors occurred on the
1880
Jackson Co MO census entry for my great grandfather Elijah M. Sellers, born
in TN and his wife Martha J. Melton, born in MO. It states that Martha's
mother was born in AR (which may or may not be true), but then for each of
Elijah's and Martha's children it says, Father born in MO, Mother born in
AR!

It will be an adventure. Let me know if anyone else is working on this
(tend
to doubt it). I'll keep in touch.

I also have some wonderful (photo) copies of handwritten documents that my
distant cousin sent me. These include the will of Cain Sellers; a
court-ordered stipend for Polly Sellers nee Gallant, the widow of Isaiah
Sellers, Micah's son who died in 1844; a list of Isaiah Sellers debts paid
by his father, Micah - executor; Micah's handwritten will; an inventory of
Micah's household; and results of a sale of his effects the Spring after
his
death. These are very interesting, and I would like to transcribe some of
them, but my eyesight is not so great, and some of the writing is really
hard to decipher. There would be so many *** explaining how that may not be
what it said!!

Hiwassee Baptist Association Minutes

                                      --Part 3--

OBITUARIES
Concord Church:
Sister Sallie Deatherage, formerly Edgmon, was born June 7th, 1871,
proffered faith in christ and joined the Baptist church at Concord in
August 1887.  Married to C.M. Deatherage and moved West, not taking any
church letter with her, we cannot tell anything about her Christian
work.  Her own statement when she wrote her friends said she was trying
to live a Christian life.  Died April 20, 1907.

Sister Mary Sellers was born Dec. 8th 1813.  She professed religion and
joined the church at Concord Jan. 2nd, 1850.  Died June 7th, 1907, age
93 years, _ months and 29 days.

      From:
           Cindy McLaughlin <lunaloba@texas.net>
 

This particular Shiloh Baptist Church (many have that name in many other
places) was in Roane Co TN, about 8 miles south and a little east of
Kingston, on the south side of the TN River. This area was included in
the Hiwassee District, prior to its annexation, so to speak, by TN.
Micah Sellers was pastor there from about 1830 until after the Civil
War. I believe he was active until near the time of his death in
November of 1870. During that time he continued to serve other churches
in the area, and he performed many marriages in Rhea, Roane, and McMinn
Counties, most of which were recorded in Roane Co. As a sideline, Micah
bought and sold property in a speculative manner. While living quite
modestly by our standards, as indicated by the records of the sale of
his estate in January 1871, he was able to leave generous bequests to
many of his children.
My relatives tell me that the old church building is gone. What remains
of the cemetery is on private land, and was, at last report to me, in
poor shape. Micah's gravestone was cracked in half, with pieces missing,
by one account.
The near-by George Jones Memorial Cemetery, dedicated to Micah's
preacher son-in-law, is near-by. It is in very good condition and
contains a monument to Micah in addition to the graves of many of his
desendants. So I am told.
