(*) First given name Benton per census
Simon Sellers then married Mrs. Mary E. Harkey on November 16, 1911
This is the unproven informtion concerning the Sellers family.
It was given to me by the son of Oley Wellington Sellers and Elizabeth Mae Dunn in 1985.

The papers that I have are difficult to read and I hope it is clear. I
received this in 1985.
My husband is Robert Phillip Sellers, son of Oley Wellington Sellers, Jr. and
Chloe Phillips Sellers. His grandfather was Oley Wellington Sellers, Sr. and
grandmother r was Lizzie Mae Dunn. There is some confusion there because
when O.W. Sellers, Sr. died Lizzie Mae Dunn Sellers married Simon Isaac
Sellers (her husband's brother) according to Roy Tom Sellers (brother of
Oley Wellington Seller, Jr.) but some of my records have the Benton Sellers
mixed up in this. I am not real clear on it but Roy Tom Sellers should know
because he was of good mind when this was written.
