This is the latest research I've gathered from cousins and Internet sources
on the descendants of William P Sellers of Roane Co TN and Cass Co MO. It
can replace my original entry on my page. I will soon re-enter the info on
the descendants of Elijah Matheny Sellers of Cass and Jackson Counties
because it needs to be updated, too. I am happy for it to go on the Sellers
website. Not too many on the List researching my line right now, but it
will
be there for any in the future. Great gift! Cindy
