CALDWELL CO, TX (made in 1848
Caldwell County, 120 miles inland from the Gulf of Mexico in south central Texas, is bordered by Bastrop, Fayette, Gonzales, Guadalupe, Hays, and Travis counties

By 1847 the population in the northern part of Gonzales County had increased so much that residents petitioned the Texas legislature to establish a new county, Plum Creek County, with Lockhart Springs as county seat. In March 1848 the legislature approved the formation of the county from Bastrop and Gonzales counties but named it Caldwell instead of Plum Creek;

I found an old photo of Robert F. Sellers (abt 10 yrs old) in a McKinney, TX antique shop. I will scan it and send it to you if you are interested. I am interested in obtaining a photo of his brother Isaac Sellers and perhaps Isaac's wife Eugenia. I have found a lot of info about the family, but no photos of Isaac. Do you have any you would be willing to share? Do you know of any living decendants of Isaac & Eugenia Sellers? Thank you in advance for your help. My e-mail address is dcmskm@tx.rr.com. Please write when you have time. Dan Morick

My wife and I want to fix it up like it was still sitting there in 1920 or earlier (old books, letter openers, ink wells, photos, etc). We spent all day yesterday walking through antique shops in McKinney TX where we found Isaac Sellers’ old Bible. In that Bible was a photo of Robert Sellers. Later I learned that Isaac was a Baptist minister and Robert was his brother. I see that Isaac passed away in Dallas in 1930 and somehow his Bible got to this antique shop in 2010. The front cover broke off of it and it needs some repair. I am gathering some of his personal items to put with it. I want others to know the history of Isaac and the book. I really hope to get a photo of him to put with his Bible. I found a great letter he wrote to his nephew and also a story he wrote about his mother. I have printed those and will keep them with the Bible. He was very literate and a joy to read. I have a lot of respect for the man, despite never having met him.

I am going to try to take a photo of the Bible and the photo of Robert laying next to it. I will also try to get a decent photo of the inscription in the Bible, although it is somewhat difficult to read. Photoshop should be able to help pull out the text. Dan Morick - dcmskm@tx.rr.com

Eugenia Sellers, Isaac Sellers' first wife. Do not know the date of this picture.

Isaac Sellers 1842 in The First Baptist Church of Abilene, TX has a display of pictures of all the ministers who have pastored there. On a visit to Abilene many years ago, my cousin, Marigene Sellers Milch, stopped by the church and the secretary was kind enough to Xerox the photo of Isaac Sellers. Unfortunately, the copy was made while the photo was in a frame, etc. I hope to get there one day and ask if I might have the photo long enough to have a "real" photo made. I tried to lighten it up as much as possible. Bill & Shelia Sellers

The Baptists altered their church entrance to protect late comers from
the weather and called Rev. Isaac Sellers to succeed Rev. Pinckney Harris.

Liela Wallace, Misses Annie and Nannie Sellers
, bought the Onnie Harde-

Looking for any information on Rev. Isaac Sellers (Baptist. Rev. Sellers relocated to Palestine from Abilene, Taylor Co., Texas during 1901. Rev. Sellers left the First Baptist Church in Abilene for a calling to Palestine (church unknown). Rev. Sellers (to the best of my knowledge) was born in Tennessee in 1845 and was married to Eugenia Howard Blanton. I also known that Rev. Sellers was ministering in Luling, Caldwell Co., Texas in the 1881 timeframe (recording in the Gonzales Inquirer newspaper). The Sellers had at least one son, Eugene Veazey Sellers, born in LaGrange, Texas - my husband's grandfather. Trying to find any information on Rev. and Mrs. Sellers (dod, place of burial, etc.), any information on his ministry in Palestine, and any information on other children. Thank you in advance for any help!!!

HI ! Hope you are still on-line- your posting is old.
But I have the History of the First Baptist Church of Luling, TX. According to the history, " Rev. Isaac Sellers was the pastor for six years (1880-1185) Rev. Sellers will be remembered by the pioneers as the one who was intensely interested in agricultrue, and introduced Johnson Grass to our San Macrcos Vaeely"
No other info on him, but bless him for the johnson grass. It has been feeding our cattle well for over 100 years.
