Subject: L.C. Sellers
I ran across the following by accident -- I realize it may be a different
family, but thought I'd mention it, just in case it was useful.
"L.C. Sellers Assigns," Bryan Weekly Eagle, 2 Nov. 1905, p.4, col.4.
article concerned Mr. L.C. Sellers who was in the drug business at
in Brazos Co. The article notes that he signed over his "stock of drugs,
etc. and twenty-one head of cattle" to his creditors.
Good luck with your research.
This is so minor that I hesitate to post it -- the only reference I have
for your ancestor is that he was
chosen for jury duty -- see (weekly) Bryan Eagle, 20 Feb. 1890, p.5, col.2
Good luck with your research.

I would ask for a lookup (on This Brazos Co,Tx board) and see if anyone
has a reading on this BILL SELLERS, PAGE 62 IN 1870 census.
Did they have Obits in 1908?
I didn't extract these names in 1910 and 1920=soundex is all I have on
this county. Could tell of a relative living with.
KEEP on 'digging' and Share any info you find, so we can search what

Hi Marie, I'm still lurking out here. Wm. D. Sellers 39 in 1900 from
intrigues me. I am missing a Wm. b 1860 in McMinn Co. TN. In 1880 he is
living with my grandfather (Jonas L.) his brother in Roane Co. TN and I
nothing else on him. The other brothers all moved to the Claremore, OK
If Bill knows anything about his parents in TN, I would like share info if
is from McMinn Co. Ed Sellers in Amarillo, TX
PS: I am leaving town in the morning and will not be online until next Sun.

BILL, you are SO helpful here, do you do lookups for BRAZOS CO, TX or have a lot of documents?
Thank you, marie, iowa
Thanks for the kind words. I don't really do lookups for folks, but
over the years I have accumulated a
good bit of information on various families who lived in Brazos Co. -- so many folks have helped me
with my research, this is the closest I can ever come to repaying their kindness.
I noticed that some of your Sellers were connected somehow with the
Kincannon family ... By
coincidence, I have some notes on that family, also.
The 1860 Census of Agriculture for Brazos Co., precinct 3 (page 25) recorded on 30 July 1860 lists:
Wm. C. Kincanon with 10 acres of improved land, 169 acres of unimproved
land, $ 1,000 cash value of
farm & $30 value of farm equipment. The actual microfilm at the A&M Library (something like Film
A 403 ?) has some additional details.
William "E." Kincannon registered a brand on 6 Aug. 1860 in Brazos Co.
Ruth Hary & Janis Hunt have been transcribing the 1865 Brazos Co.
tax records -- their copy (p.126)
shows Wm. C. Kincannon as owning 169 acres in the Jas. Gray headright, 4 horses, 30 cattle ...
Know all men by these presents, that I Maggie Allcorn widow of the late
J. Allcorn, dec'd ... for $ 1 to
me paid by John McCulloch, W.C. Wyatt and W.C. Kincannon ... who have been chosen as school
commissioners in their community have granted, bargained, sold and conveyed unto the said
McCulloch, Wyatt and Kincannon as commissioners all that piece or parcel of land ... (Brazos Co.
Deeds Book X, pp.354-345 (??), 6 Apr. 1883)

And there is a probate package for James Kincannon et al. (minors),
dated 8 Oct. 1890 -- Probate

This is really off topic, but sometimes odd things give a clue.
Surname: SELLERS, PRICE
While looking for something else, I ran across an article titled, "A
Home Wedding at San Antonio," (weekly) Bryan Eagle, 30
October 1902, p.1, col.1. This is a long article, but short on family information (sigh ...) Mr. Lang C. Sellers, a druggist living at
Millican (in Brazos Co.) went to San Antonio, Texas, where he married Miss Katie PRICE at the home of her brother. The
article stated that Mr. SELLERS "came to the state four years ago from Alabama"; the article also noted that his mother, "Mrs.
SELLERS" (not very helpful) also lived at Millican.
