Benjamin Brooks and Andrew Sellers were both soldiers in the Revolutionary
war. Their son, William Brooks, and daughter, Mary Sellers, were married
in Franklin Co, VA in 1798. Their marriage bond is one of the oldest records
at the Courthouse in Rocky Mount, VA. Anyone who can confirm any information
about either Benjamin Brooks or Andrew Sellers please contact me.



CATHERINE, sent this thro our SELLERS DISCUSSION GROUP for some help.
WHAT info do you have on their children. Only have the 1810 census on Wm
Brooks and looks like wife isn't alive? Same?
CAN you SEND the kids names and marriages and where went?
DO you have the REV WAR BROOKS info?
WILL check more on this Rev War Andrew SELLERS - hE should be listed on
a Rev War File, Index.

PLEASE send copies of any contacts to us also and we will send any info
we find.
DID NOT realize this little old county was just SITTING here. Thanks for
sharing,

In a marriage 11-14-1798 in Franklin County, VA, William Scott was surety
for the bond in the marriage of Mary Sellars to William Brooks.  The name of
the bride's father was not recorded.  Perhaps this is the same William Scott
who married Christina Sellers?  He might have been providing surety for the
bond for his wife's sister's marriage.

In the 11 years prior to 1798, the names of Samuel Sellers, Thomas Sellers
and Nathan Sellers are found in Franklin Co., VA records.

Looking for information on the William Brooks family of Franklin County.
William was born about 1778, married Mary Sellers, and according to "Pioneers
of Missouri" William's father was Benjamin Brooks. William Brooks children:
Andrew, Clifford, John, Ewell, Pleasant, Irene, Drusilla, Julia, and Nancy.
All the children were born between 1799 and 1820. William's son, Pleasant,
went to Missouri about 1834.

Also have this information:

This is from my papers - Looking for any information re William B. Scott
and who he is descended from. Below is information I have gathered from
my mother's papers from a Wysong Newsletter dated 1981.
"He had a shop in Franklin Co., VA in which he used bar iron (probably
Blac
ksmith). In June 1812 he accused William Brooks, a neighbor, of
stealing some
bar iron from his shop. The case was thrown out of court. In August
1812,
William Scott appealed to the court to require a Peace Bond of William
Brooks,
who Scott said was threatening him with bodily harm. By Nov. 14,
William
Scott was killed in Norfolk in the War of 1812 and his children were
being
bound out. While the Court Order book only names sons Micajah, William,

James, Sanford and Amos and tells who they were bound to, there is no
mention of Hullum or the girls. Hullum was born in 1812, so was to
young to
be bound out. In these cases, the young and the girls usually stayed
with the
mother. William A. Burwell was appointed guardian of the children so
that
they could collect their claim for their father's services. This man
was a
member of Congress and Thomas Jefferson's private secretary. Burwell's
estate was still holding money for William Scotts estate as late aas
1824.
Mrs. Mann has written the National Archives again for information on
William
Scott's service record because there should be something in the way of
bounty land and money payment to Williams' wife and children. While
there
was no release of dower attached to any deed of sale by Wiolliam Scott,
we
know that his wife was Christina Sellers. He bought 240 acres from
Martin
Innion in 1800n and sold 98A to Francis Bell in 1801. In 1803 he put a
228A in
deed of trust to service a debt. It was paid off in due time. In 1804
he sold
225A to William Brizendine. Where this extra acreage came from it is
not
know. This makes it appear that it came from an inheritance. By the
process
of elimination we are beginning to believe that James Scott was the
father our
our William. James mentions a son William in 1783. While we have no
documentary proof at this time, we hope to have it by the Oct. 4, 1981
reunion. This James Scott was a Revolutionary War Soldier from
Botetourt
Co., VA."

Also found this posted in genforum about William B. Scott "First known
location was Tenth Leigon in Rockingham County, VA, living with a family
with
last name of Fraley. 1790 census taken April 13, 14, 1788."
