BETTY'S PAGE 
  From: bettyc@totcon.com

I was referred to you by someone I contacted on the Sellers Name.  I thought
maybe you would be interested in the following.
My Grandmother was Nora Bell SELLERS,
he d/o Reuben Sellers and Nancy Elmore. 
I will list her siblings
below.  I believe most of this family moved into Ky as I was told by an aunt
that most of them were living in Middlesboro, Ky at one time.  This is about
all I know of the family. I will place a query a little later.  I think your
page is great!!
