Yes, this is part of my family tree. Susan Gertrude Sellers Nix married
my ggrandfather's brother Joseph Howell Miller. I have been looking for
Billy Sellers for years. He and Eda had 4 children; Martha (married my
gggrandfather Mason C. Miller), George Thomas, Susan Carolyn (married my
ggrandfather William Abner Miller) and William. Would like to hear more
about William Sellers. I have been looking for him for quite a while. I
was under the impression he was William B. Sellers. Please e-mail me at

The Whigam cemetary in Grady County GA contains the unmarked graves
Marion Hornsby and Mary Clark. Beside them is buried my grandmother, Mary
Lizzy Sellers, also in an unmarked grave. My desire is to find someone
who has a map of the burials in that cemetary. The dates of the burials
of which I am inquiring are from circa 1900 to 1909.

Surname: Sellers, Williamson
Mrs. Maud Sellers of Grady County Laid to Rest:
Young woman, wife of mr. Allen Sellers, Buried at Long Branch Today.
Cairo, GA Oct. 2, Funeral services were held this afternoon at three
from Long Branch Church for Mrs. Maud Sellers of this county, who died
Thursday night at the hospital in Thomasville after an illness of five
days. The final rites were conducted by the Rev. E. L. Williamson.
The deceased was a native of Grady County, whre she was born May 28, 1918,
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W. B. Willis. She had spent her entire life in
this county, where she was married to Mr. Allen Sellers, who survives together
with two brothers and three sisters. They are: Messrs. Marion Willis, Albany
GA, and Hardwick Willis of Cairo, Mrs. Calvin Clark and Mrs. Clyde Hancock
of Cairo, Mrs. Henry Hancock of Estero, FL Her father and mother also survive.
The deceased was a member of the Long Branch church and a christion young
woman whose death has caused much sorrow among those who have known and
Funeral arrangements were in charge of the South Georgia Funeral Home.
My great uncles, sons of my great grandfather Richard M. Sellars,
Thomas and Wesley (Wes) Sellars, were in the sawmilling business
together most of their lives. They started with a sawmill owned by
their father but after there was some dissatisfaction from him about how
they ran the business, great grandpa just gave it to them. That was
near Cairo in what is now Grady County, Georgia. Depending on when this
actually happened, Cairo might have still been in Thomas County, then.
At some point they moved their sawmilling operation to Merritt Island
(near Cocoa Beach), Brevard County, Florida. My uncle William
("Willie") Charles White moved to Brevard County to work at their
sawmill there. My uncle John (Louie) White also worked for the Sellars
brothers at that sawmill and bought a Model T that he was quite proud of
with some of his earnings. Uncle Louie enlisted in the U.S. Army and
died at Fort Benning, Georgia, in 1928... so this will give a rough idea
of the timeframe. Though it was rather small because the coastal
location stunted growth, there was still virgin timber to be cut in the
Brevard County area at that time. This sawmill operation was probably
centered around a contract with "the railroad" to cut cross-ties.

FUNERAL HELD FOR MRS. J.P. SELLERS TUESDAY
The tragic death of Mrs. J.P. (Martha Ann Watts)
Sellers, which occured last Sunday afternoon about
five o'clock four miles east of Cairo on the
Cairo-Thomasville highway, the result of an automobile accident, in which her grandson, Leon Sellers, of near Thomasville, was also killed, his wife, baby, and sister being seriously injured, shocked this entire section. Mrs. Sellers was born in Canton, Ga., Nov 4th, 1853, a daughter of the late Rev. and Mrs. William Franklin Watts, having moved to this section during her early girlhood days. About sixth-five years ago she was married to the late John Pryor Sellers, who died on March 28, 1918. She had been a faithful member of the Baptist church for more than a half century, her membership having been at Magnolia Baptist church about five miles southwest of Whigham. She was one of the finest characters that it has ever been the privilege of the writer to know; a truly great and good woman; loved and admired by a host of acquaintances. Although her body has been returned to the earth, the influence that she wielded for good will live on.
The body was brought to Whigham Monday afternoon, and
was placed in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Robert L.
Sellers. Funeral services were held Tuesday morning,
July 1st, at 10 o'clock at the residence of Mr. and
Mrs. Sellers, conducted by Rev. N.G. Christopher, of
Whigham. Immediately after the service a large number
of relatives and friends accompanied the body to the
Magnolia Baptist church for interment.
Mrs. Sellers is survived by three sons, Robert L.
Sellers, of Whigham, Oscar D. Sellers, of
Jacksonville, Fla., and Jesse M. Sellers, of
Chatsworth, Ga.; and two daughters, Mrs. P.W. Sellers
and Mrs. O.J. Parramore, of Thomasville; also twenty
two grandchildren and twelve great grandchildren. Pall
bearers were Ward Sellers and Albert McCrory, of
Jacksonville, Herman Sellers, of Atlanta, M.F. Laing,
Joe D. Lewis and M.J. Perkins, of Whigham.
South Georgia Funeral Home, of Cairo, was in charge.

Mr. J.P. Sellers Dies of Paralysis
Mr. J.P. Sellers, who resided near town was suddenly
stricken with paralysis, Sunday afternoon, the 24th,
from which he never regained consciousness, during his
illness. He finally succumbed from this dreadful
malady Thursday morning, the 28th at an early hour. He
is survived by his wife, three daughters, Mrs. P.W.
Sellers and Mrs. Albert McCrory of this place and Mrs.
Oland Parramore of Coolidge, four sons, R.L. and O.D.
Sellers, of Whigham, W.F. Sellers of Edison, and Jesse
M. Sellers of Cairo. The deceased had just passed the
66th mile post of his earthly pilgrimage. He was
apparently in the very best of health up to the time
the attack came upon him. His promises of a ripe old
age were exceptionally good. He was highly respected
and held a warm place in the hearts of all who knew
and came in contact with him. He was numbered among
the most substantial citizens of the community, and
held positions of responsibility and trust. He was a
member of the school board of trustees for a number of
years, rendering invaluable service in that capacity,
for which the community will ever be indebted to him.
His home life was a beautiful personification of
Christian character and living, and a loyal member of
the Magnolia Baptist church, ever responsive to it's
needs and demands at all times, in any capacity. He
was kind and gentle in his disposition. He never
forgot to practice that grand lesson he learned in his
youthful years to apply the golden rule in dealing
with his fellowman.Funeral services were conducted at
the church of his membership by Rev. J.P. Swann, the
pastor, and N.G. Christopher.He was laid to rest in
the Magnolia Cemetery amid a large concourse of
friends and relatives.

DEATH OF A LOVELY WOMAN
Mrs. Will Sellers (nee) Miss Lizzie Hornsby, oldest
daughter of Mrs. Mary Hornsby, of Whigham died of
blood poisoning at their home in Havana, Fla.,
Saturday evening last. Mrs. Sellers leaves a devoted
husband and an infant daughter, besides her mother,
two sisters, Misses Leila and Emma Hornsby, five
brothers, Messrs. Ollie, Will, Jonus, George and
Harvey Hornsby, to mourn her death. The remains were
brought to Whigham Sunday afternoon, and interred
beside her father, Mr. Marion Hornsby, who preceeded
her to the bright beyond about eight or nine years
ago. The funeral service was conducted by Rev. R.
Herring. There was quite a big concourse of relatives
and friends to pay the last sad rites to the deceased.
She was a consistant member of the Baptist Church, and
we feel assured she is resting under the shade with
