             George W. Sellars of Mississippi and Alabama
 

Hello, My name is Tom Sellars and I am new to the list.  I am looking for information
on George W. Sellars, a resident of Jasper County Mississippi from approximately 1844 to 1870.  He was married
to Mrs. Nancy A. Bradford of St. Clair County Alabama Dec. 10, 1844.  Nancy A. Bradford's maiden name is
believed to be Langford.  They had the following children: Eliza (b.1845), Benjamin Franklin (b.1847) Margaret
Ann. (b.1848), Julia Ann (b.1852), George Alexander (b.1853) and Josephine (b.1857).  They are last listed in the
1870 cencus for Jasper Co. Mississippi and left there and went to Polk Co. Texas between 1870 and 1880.  Any
information on George W. Sellars (b.abt 1815 in Alabama(?)) parents would be appreciated.

TOM, Thanks, It will help and someday it will make a picture! Right now we
need more info
to find where these SELLERS came from!
So papers were filed in 1852 St. Clair Co,AL and I couldn't find SELLERS
there on 1850 census ?
There was a David SELLERS in Dale Co, AL-

YES, an 1840 census we need.
The BURRELL SELLERS here in 1840 and MS 1850
was married in BLOUNT CO, AL in 1829.
Its a possibility of a brother/cousin - But, don't have BURRELL connected
to parent.
Thanks for Sharing, keep posting info. marie, iowa

I am working on the George Sellers family that you referenced in Jasper
Co.
Miss. although I have not been able to place him with another family.  I
do
know that Nancy was married before to a Tom Bradford of St. Clair Co.
Alabama.  Her maiden name was Lankford.  George Sellers birth place is
shown
on census as Alabama but  1860 census show birth place as Georgia.  I have
his Civil war records which also show his place of birth as Georgia.  I
believe that he was born in Ga and came to Ala at an early age.  There are
two Sellers shown in St. Clair Co. in 1820 , David and Margaret.  Have not
been able to connect him with either family.  In the 1860 census George is
listed with 3 more children but Nancy is in another household for some
reason.  In the 1866 state census the family is together again except for
Benjamin who I believe was killed during the civil war.  In the 1870
census
George is not shown but Nancy and children are.  I have not been able to
determine if he died during this time period.  In the 1880 census the
children are found in Polk Co. Tx without Nancy.  I also have been unable
to
connect Burwell with George.  I have been told by others that they were
brothers but have been unable to prove.  If you are connected with any of
this please let me know.

FROM GEORGIA
Georgia Fletcher [mailto:chick@blzwire.com]

To Carl Elbert Sellars of Williamson County, IL:

Also to Thomas W. Sellars of Walker County, TX

 

I was looking at your ancestor charts and note that you have Young

Sellers from Chatham County, NC as your 3rd great grandfather.  The only

Young Sellers that I know that was in Chatham was the son of James Y/T

Sellers and was still living in Chatham County, NC in the 1850 census.

Deed Records show that James Y/T Sellers had dealings with a David

Sellers but I do not know who he is.  David Sellers is possibly the son

of James Y/T Sellers that died in Chatham circa 1805.  Are you sure that

David had a son named Young?

 

Here are the known children of James T/Y Sellers (I have often wondered

if the name is James Young Sellers):

 

James T/Y Sellers born circa 1735 Scotland or England died 1805 Chatham

County, North Carolina married Patience Parker, who died 1812 in Maury

County, Tennessee

 

Known children:

James Sellers, Jr. born abt 1756;

Robert Sellers born abt 1765 married Sarah Bynum; Ruth Sellers born abt

1768 married Isham Bilbrey; Isaac Sellers, Sr. abt 1769 Orange County,

NC died 1830 Maury County, Tennessee married Judith Johnson, this is my

Sellers line; John Sellers born abt 1770 NC died 1824 Maury County, TN

married Elizabeth Hart; Laird Sellers born 13 Dec 1771 Chatham County,

NC died 1862 Moniteau County, Missouri married Anne Hackney and #2

Elizabeth Goodwin; Patience Sellers born abt 1774 Chatham County, NC

died abt 1812 Maury County, TN; married Wiley Griffin; Rachel Sellers

born abt 1775 Chatham County, NC , died Overton County, TN, married John

Hammock; Young Sellers born abt 1784 Chatham County, NC, died 1850-1860

Chatham County, NC married Elizabeth Hackney;

 

The name Young Sellers is a family name used by both James T/Y Sellers

and his brother Robert Sellers that lived in Burke County, NC.

 

I would like to know more about your Young Sellers to see if we can tie

the families together.

Georgia:

 

This is what I know about Young Sellars.

 

He was born about 1789 in North Carolina.  He is the son of Judith

Sellars of Georgia Hall County.  Judith died about 1850 and left a will

naming her children as, Young, David, James, Hiram, Catherine Green of

South Carolina, Mary Byford, Happy Hanes, Cynthia Flynn and Nancy

Cockram.  Judith was approximately 100 years of age at her death.  She

was born about 1750 in North Carolina.

  

Young Sellars is first found on the 1830 census in Jackson County

Alabama married to Sarah Unknown and he is a blacksmith.

 

Young died between 1860-1870 in Jackson County Alabama.  We have

documents that tie Young to his mother Judith.

 

Carl Sellars and I believe that Young Sellars was married first to

Margaret Green, abt 1792 in Caswell County North Carolina.  They are

believed to have been married in Pendleton District South Carolina.

Margaret Green is found in Saint Clair County Alabama in 1820 living

close to the David Sellars mentioned above (brother of Young).  Margaret

Sellars remarried in 1820 to Arch Walker and died about 1849 in St.

Clair County Alabama.

 

Margaret Sellars on the 1820 census had 4 children that have been

identified as Burwell, George W., Melinda and an Unknown daughter.

 

Carl descends from Burwell and I descend from George W.

 

Carl and I have had the DNA test and have determined that we definitly

descend from a common ancestor which we believe to be Young Sellars of

Alabama.

 

Many questions still remain.  We are not conclusive that Judith's

husband was David or that he was as son of Young.

 

There also is Ruth Sellars that married in Hall County Georgia that we

was not mentioned in Judith's will that we cannot tie into.

 

Also there is some connection with Judith and Fayette County Georgia and

Sellars found there.  These Sellars also tie to Sellars in Tennessee.

 

We also have no idea where Young Sellars was in 1820 census since he was

not listed with Margaret. 

 

Carl belives that our line descends from the Robert Sellers that you

mentioned but we have not been able to put it together at this time.

Any help that you could give would be greatly appreciated.  If you need

any further information I will try to find.

 

Thanks
