I wanted to invite you to check out my Sellers link at
http://www.geocities.com/Heartland/Farm/2521/Sellers.html
I would appreciate any new info I am missing, or letting me know of any
errors that you might find. I do not have all of the land deed info listed
on the website site yet involving ELisha Sellers, George W. Sellers, & Joel
Sellers.

Also, does anyone know who Mathew Sellers is?  I find him listed in many
deeds with Elisha W. and George W. and I have a theory that he is one of
the missing brothers but have no proof yet.


I am looking for the children (especially the male children) of the
following
Columbus County, NC WARD men.
These men were listed in the 1840 Columbus Co. census. I am trying to fill
in the gaps on these men to see if my DANIEL WARD b. abt 1832, is the child
of one of these men. The 1840 Census lists them as:

1) JESSE WARD - he had 1 male 5-10 yrs; 1 male 15-20 yrs;

1 male 20-30 yrs; 1 female 50-60 yrs; and 1 male 70-80

yrs.

2) ROBERT WARD - 2 females under 5 yrs; 1 male 5-10 yrs; 1 female 5-10
yrs; 3 females 10-15 yrs; 1 male 20-30 yrs; 1 female 30-40 yrs; and 1 male
40-50 yrs.

3) SIMON WARD - 1 male 5-10 yrs; 1 female 5-10 yrs; 1 male 15-20 yrs; 1
female 15-20 yrs; 1 female 50-60 yrs; 1 male 50-60 yrs.

4) SIMON WARD - 1 female under 5 yrs; 1 male 5-10 yrs; 1 female 5-10 yrs;
1 male 10-15 yrs; 1 female 10-15 yrs; 1 female 20-30 yrs; 1 male 30-40
yrs.

Any information on these men is greatly appreciated!



 am looking for information on how the following Columbus Co., NC people
tie into together. I believe that SUSANNAH (SUSAN) NOBLES and ARCHY NOBLES
are brother and sister. SUSANNAH was b. abt 1828, and ARCHY was born abt.
1838. SUSANNAH married DANIEL WARD, b. abt 1832. I beleive that SUSANNAH
is also related insome way to JOHN C. NOBLES, CATHARINE NOBLES, and NANCY
NOBLES.



I am looking for any information on the following Brunswick CO., BENTON
men and their offspring, especially the male children b. 1780-1791.

1) HARDY BENTON

2) JOB BENTON

3) JOSHUA BENTON

I beleive that one of these men is possibly the father of ISAAC BENTON
b. abt 1791 married MARY WARD b. abt 1809.
later moved to COLUMBUS CO or were put into COLUMBUS co. when the Co.
formed
in 1808.

THANKS  for sharing, marie, iowa



Good Morning Sellers Researchers,
I found my info past Elisha from Dr. JAmes MArlowe in his book "The Sellers
of Brunswick Co." where he discusses what facts he has and his theories on
everything.  He has a theory that Ameilia is Elisha and Joel and Mathew
Sellers mother from the census records and deed records, and believes that
she was married to Joel, son of Benjamin.  I believe if I am not mistaken
that he feels that Joel who married Amelia was Benjamin's son. I will be
glad to put those two pages into a text format and forward to you all in an
e-mail. I amwriting to Dr. Marlowe to see if I can purchase a copy of his
book.

You can see what I have on the Sellers at
www.geocities.com/Heartland/Farm/Sellers.html
I have not entered all of teh cenusus and deed info onto my site yet.
Any feedback or theories are welcomed, as all of this info on ELisha to
Amelia and Joel to Benjamin is not 100% proven yet. I think you will find
it
interesting reading when I forward the file. I will do so later toady. But
look at my Sellers page in teh meantime.

Sincerely,
Debra Benton-
 

DEBRA - will send to our SELLERS group as many have worked on COLUMBUS CO,
NC
SELLERS.
Yes, Mr. MARLOWE has done a splendid job of separating these families by
the use
of land deeds - we wouldn't be this far without him.  As he said, there are
a
few areas that are speculation and We must work these out the best we can
and
look for Newer material, etc.
We have tried to make a page on each child of Benjamin SELLERS 1720 and we
don't
have one for JOEL 1748 and his kids. So, with your help and info, we can
start
one for him and make links to places, etc, So others can find you and his
kids.

I had to use this url for your
page=http://www.geocities.com/Heartland/Farm/2521/Sellers.html
perhaps the number below will work for others.
Thanks for sharing, marie, iowa

Marie,
Here is an updated (though I stil have more data to enter) on Elisha
Sellers
and his descendants taht I have thus far. Also under George Sellers in  my
link to George as Elisha's son. That is also under George's son Vestpucious
in the 1910 census and info on Joseph C. Sellers Death Certificate.  It
appears I am the first one to put George Washington as a son of Elisha.
Would appreciate a second opinion to make sure that my logic  is correct !
Let me know what you think!
I will try to get the rest entered into my FTM but am short on time these
days.  I have not updated my website on the Sellers with the info I just
typed in today.
Look forward to hearing from you!

Sincerely

Debra Benton

in the 1910 census and info on Joseph C. Sellers Death Certificate.  It

DEBRA  - Thanks -
ELISHA SELLERS 1784 did have a sons born 1815/20
Have you tried to Find Each Child these ages on 1830 census?

I wonder about this CivilWar file - Some lists the Wm and Pitlman SELLERS,
sons
of Elisha 1784 as CW , Reg 51
and you show an age diff of GEO W (comparing same)
Couldn't this Geo W. Be a diff CW vet/record=CoK-20th reg -
Please check it out
THANKS, marie, iowa

-------------------------

Our great great Aunt ELIZA BENTON was married to BRACEY SMITH, both of
Columbus Co., NC. I have the basic info on ELIZA and BRACEY (birth, death
, and marriage) and I know that ELIZA lived behind some of the TODD's after
BRACEY's death and never remarried and is buried in STANLEY Cemetery.
I am looking for stories about the lives of BRACEY and ELIZA. ie. ELIZA
used to smoke a clay pipe. Can you tell me more about them? I want to know
more abou them besides statistics. Thanks!
