Hello, I picked up your message from the Sellers mailing list.
I am in
Tucson, AZ and am researching my husband's side of the family. I am
for Henry Clay Barden and Mary Jane Sellars/Sellers in AL or possibly NC.
strange thing is that on the other side of his family I have over 5000
names. Thought it might be something you might be interested in.
Means nothing to me yet because I still have so little to go on.
is that I am looking for Mary Jane Sellars/Sellers and she married Henry
Bardin and they lived in AL. At this point the only children that I know
had were Perlie (My husband's grandmother), Callie, Flossie and Cy. I know
they were in AL and possibly FL. Henry Clay Bardin went out for a loaf of
bread and never came back.

Thanks for your reply, I will check Simeone Sellers out in Henry Co., AL
1850. Thomas's son-in-law was definitely Henry Clay Bardin and I believe
it was you that sent me the Monroe Co., AL 1880 census with him listed as a
member of Dr. Sellers household. When Henry ran off to TX I do not know
name he assumed or if he continued to use his real name. Thanks for this
info, maybe I can move forward a little with my search.
Actually, Ed has already contacted me
and shared his info which was
because I hit a brick wall a year ago. If he does not send his info, I
be happy to forward what I have.
