YOUNG SELLERS 1789 NC

From

Tom Sellars [mailto:tsellars@hlsk.com]

 

This is what I know about Young Sellars.

 

He was born about 1789 in North Carolina.  He is the son of Judith

Sellars of Hall County Georgia.  Judith died about 1850 and left a will

naming her children as, Young, David, James, Hiram, Catherine Green of

South Carolina, Mary Byford, Happy Hanes, Cynthia Flynn and Nancy

Cockram.  Judith was approximately 100 years of age at her death.  She

was born about 1750 in North Carolina.

  

Young Sellars is first found on the 1830 census in Jackson County

Alabama married to Sarah Unknown and he is a blacksmith.

 

Young died between 1860-1870 in Jackson County Alabama.  We have

documents that tie Young to his mother Judith.

 

Carl Sellars and I believe that Young Sellars was married first to

Margaret Green, abt 1792 in Caswell County North Carolina.

 They are believed to have been married in Pendleton District South Carolina.

Margaret Green is found in Saint Clair County Alabama in 1820 living

close to the David Sellars mentioned above (brother of Young). 

 

Margaret Sellars remarried in 1820 to Arch Walker and died about 1849 in St. Clair County Alabama.

 

Margaret Sellars on the 1820 census had 4 children that have been

identified as Burwell, George W., Melinda and an Unknown daughter.

 

Carl descends from Burwell and I descend from George W.

 

Carl and I have had the DNA test and have determined that we definitly

descend from a common ancestor which we believe to be Young Sellars of

Alabama.

 

Many questions still remain.  We are not conclusive that Judith's

husband was David or that he was as son of Young.

 

There also is Ruth Sellars that married in Hall County Georgia that we was not mentioned in Judith's will that we cannot tie into.

 

Also there is some connection with Judith and Fayette County Georgia and

Sellars found there.  These Sellars also tie to Sellars in Tennessee.

 

We also have no idea where Young Sellars was in 1820 census since he was

not listed with Margaret. 

 

Carl belives that our line descends from the Robert Sellers that you

mentioned but we have not been able to put it together at this time. Any

help that you could give would be greatly appreciated.  If you need any

further information I will try to find.

 

Thanks

inheritance from estate of Judith Sellars of Hall County Ga.

 

Also in the 1820 census of St. Clair County Alabama is Margaret Sellars.

Margaret is the sister-in-law of David Sellars.  Margaret is believed to

be the first wife of Young Sellars of Jackson County Alabama.  Margaret

County Alabama.  Margaret's maiden name was Green.  She was the daughter

of Burwell Green and Phoebe Caddel of St. Clair County Alabama.

 

Have been unable to find a marriage record for Margaret Green and Young

Sellars but believed to be abt 1807 in Pendleton District S.C.

 

Margaret Sellars children from first marriage are as follows:

Tom, I don't know if you have this or not.  I corresponded with a Patty Hill Gambill of Durant, OK many years ago about Young Sellars of Jackson County, AL trying to tie him to my Sellers of Chatham County and Burke County, NC but never could make the connection.

 

This is Young's daughter Judith:

Thomas Hill, 23, M, laborer, 0/$40, AL

Judith A. Hill, 26, F, AL

Harriet F. Hill, 8/12, F, AL

 

I am sure there are more children but I have not pursued this line.

From GEORGIA

  The only

Young Sellers that I know that was in Chatham was the son of James Y/T

Sellers and was still living in Chatham County, NC in the 1850 census.

Deed Records show that James Y/T Sellers had dealings with a David

Sellers but I do not know who he is.  David Sellers is possibly the son

of James Y/T Sellers that died in Chatham circa 1805.  Are you sure that

David had a son named Young?

 

Here are the known children of James T/Y Sellers (I have often wondered

if the name is James Young Sellers):

 

James T/Y Sellers born circa 1735 Scotland or England died 1805 Chatham

County, North Carolina married Patience Parker, who died 1812 in Maury

County, Tennessee

 

Known children:

James Sellers, Jr. born abt 1756;

Robert Sellers born abt 1765 married Sarah Bynum; Ruth Sellers born abt

1768 married Isham Bilbrey; Isaac Sellers, Sr. abt 1769 Orange County,

NC died 1830 Maury County, Tennessee married Judith Johnson, this is my

Sellers line; John Sellers born abt 1770 NC died 1824 Maury County, TN

married Elizabeth Hart; Laird Sellers born 13 Dec 1771 Chatham County,

NC died 1862 Moniteau County, Missouri married Anne Hackney and #2

Elizabeth Goodwin; Patience Sellers born abt 1774 Chatham County, NC

died abt 1812 Maury County, TN; married Wiley Griffin; Rachel Sellers

born abt 1775 Chatham County, NC , died Overton County, TN, married John

Hammock; Young Sellers born abt 1784 Chatham County, NC, died 1850-1860

Chatham County, NC married Elizabeth Hackney;

 

The name Young Sellers is a family name used by both James T/Y Sellers

and his brother Robert Sellers that lived in Burke County, NC.

 

I would like to know more about your Young Sellers to see if we can tie

the families together.
