BOWIE CO, TEXAS (made in
lays next to =

Due to a misunderstanding of the location of the international boundary line between the United States and Spanish Texas, the area of Bowie County, Texas was once thought to be part of "Old" Miller County, Arkansas (1820-1836). After "Old" Miller County, AR ceased to exist in 1836, the records were moved to Lafayette County, Arkansas. If you are searching for records of families living in the Bowie County area between 1820 and 1836, those records may be housed in Lafayette Co., AR. Also check the early Miller County records and the 1830 Miller County, AR Census.

Thanks to your list a relative of my g-grandfather contacted me.  My John
Randolph Sellers has another sister, Sarah Alice, w/o Sam Davis, besides
the Initres Sellers Raleigh that I knew about.  This is the line for whom  I'd
been searching.  The James and Alfred/Alford were the brothers who came to
TX post Civil War with John R. from AL.
Their father was William Henry.
I will contact them after the holidays.
J.R. m. Sophronia Jane Raleigh on
12/4/1879 in Bowie Co., TX, and they had nine living children.

 SELLERS IN DEKALB CO. GA

There was an Uncle Alford I heard mentioned by Mary
Elizabeth Sellers, b.
1882, d/o John Randolph Sellers, s/o James H. that settled
in DeKalb, Bowie
Co., TX after settling first in the Sebastian Co., AR in the
1860s ?  James
H.'s children spelled their names ERS and ARS.  In Carl J.
Marsh's book,
RALEIGH AND RELATED FAMILIES, pg. 80, "Emma Lou Meadows
states in her book,
DEKALB AND BOWIE COUNTY HISTORY AND GENEALOGY, that John
[Randolph] Sellers
came to TX as a young man with one of his brothers, either
Jim or ALFORD,
but does not give the year or the place from which they
came."

I have not been able to obtain a copy of her book.  I
haven't been
researching the Sellers lately, but check the List daily.
J.R. was my
gr-grandfather who died 8/1938 at 81+ yrs. of "edema of
lungs and dementia."
  I've kept Richard's URL as I've FELT for some time there
is a connection.
