From: Jerry&Virgina Phillips

I am descended from Kelly Sellers, son of Elisha Sellers of Brunswick Co, NC. All the information I have on the Sellers has come from the findings of L. Berlyn Lancaster of Supply, NC. If you have ever seen her booklet you know how difficult it is to follow from one generation to the next. I am very confused as to exactly how this family line falls from one generation to the next. I have entries for 3 Elisha Sellers and I'm not at all sure they are different people. Is there a source that shows them with their proper connection?

Also, in your note you mentioned that the Brunswick Co. wills were available. Are you meaning they are available on-line or on someone's web site? I sure hope so because I would love to get my records straightened out.

Thank you for your time.


grandson Elisha-
the only ELISHA SELLERS that has been found here that was born before
180l when the will was written is ELISHA SELLERS 1795/+1870
father of H.K. SELLERS 1818-
AND they must have quit writing wills!
In 1819 ELISHA 1795 had land which laid next to THOMAS SELLERS
1768/+1850 which is EXEC, and son named in the will of ELISHA 1740/1801-
1841 Thomas Sellers 1768 had land adjacent to Elisha's corner -
In 1800 Thomas Sellers 1768 had 3 sons born 1784 - 1790 and 3 males born
There is NO wording in the deeds that says next to my father,etc -
There could be newer deeds, that give indications of where original
grant was - like the EDGECOMBE CO deeds do -
I don't believe THOMAS SELLERS 1768 had a will or wife Sarah -
WOULD you send me your connection to HANSON KELLY SELLERS and some
childrens names and where yours went- can post to your page and it DOES
HELP others connect to people with names/dates.

My information on the Sellers is all taken from the book by L. Berlyn
Lancaster, "My Family".  The book is loaded with names but very few dates.
I tried to decipher what I could, i.e. parents - children - etc.  I'm sure I
have lots of names that don't hook up correctly.  For what it is worth, here

That's what it looks to me.  Beryln's book didn't give any other surname.
I am moving in about 9 days so will be losing my email account until I get
relocated (OK to MD).  I will be dropping out for a while but will hook back
up when I can.  I would like to learn more info on Kelly.  His son
Washington Sellers married my great-grandmother Arnetta Stallings after she
had 3 children, which all carry the Stallings name.  I can't prove a blood
relationship.  But since he became her husband, he is all I have to go on.
What do you do in situations like that?

WE will work on this more - YOU may need to go back to counties/etc to
pick up - I try and LINK back to counties/names-

Hello.  I am new to this list and am interested in William Thomas

Stallings of Brunswick Co., NC.

He was a Confederate soldier during the Civil War.  His wife's name was

Penina.  I used to

have a good bit of information on him and the family but lost my digital

data due to a computer

upgrade that made it impossible for me to read my back-up tape. I am

beginning my search

anew and am anxious to meet new relatives who can help me fill in the gaps.
