I noticed that you don't have a link for Joshua And Sarah Sellers Hall's
daughter Sarah Hall Truet (Truitt) who migrated to Texas.

I've been working on this group lately, and thought you might like to add
this line to the Sellers family information:

Sarah Hall, dau. of Rev. Joshua Hall (buried Cowee Baptist church cemetery,
Macon Co., NC), and Sarah Sellers Hall, bur. Cowee Baptist church cemetery,
Macon Co., NC) was born 29 July, 1796 in Burke Co., NC.

Sarah Hall married James Truet, (possibly Burke Co., NC, but can't find a

James Truet b. 25 October 1795 Rowan Co., NC, the son of Levi and Susannah
Morgan Truet. (Susannah Morgan Truet is either the younger sister or niece of
Rev. Permenter Morgan of Rutherford Co., NC.  Still trying to find
documentation to clarify the correct lineage).

Levi and Susannah Morgan Truet and James and Sarah Hall Truet appear as
households on the 1820 Buncombe Co., NC census.  (I can send census abstracts
if you want)

The families are living in Macon Co., NC by 1828 (when Macon was formed from
Haywood Co., NC)

After the Removal of the Cherokee to Oklahoma (Trail of Tears) which James
Truet served as 1st Lieut. Co. F., Macon Co., NC Volunteers, the family moved
to Texas.  Arriving in San Augustine Co., Texas in April of 1839. Moved to
Shelby Co., TX in 1840.
