Will be happy to type up the will and post it under a separate page so
it will not have these messages on it. Would be interested in copies
of any Johnston Co. or Chesterfield Co. records. I have Henrietta
Sellers census information and tombstone pictures of her and her husband
John in Carroll Co. If you want, I will also photocopy the will
(attached to the Rev. War Record) and mail it if you need it.

        From: BELINDA

    Georgia and Edward,
I have a map that shows a Sellers Mill a little northeast of Chesterfield
in Chesterfield District, between Chesterfield and Mt. Croghan. The
information I received from Carl Fisher (I have his address if you need it)
and Marie Wiggins says "The land of Hardy Sellers was probably located
north of Ruby, SC. His mill site is approximately 300 yeards west of
Highway 47 on Deep Creek. The dam and floor of the millhouse are still
evident."
Other information I have from Carl mentions "In 1784 Hardy Sellers, Sr. was
granted 15 acres of land in what is now Ruby, SC. Over the next three
decades he received State grants for over 650 acres of land around Ruby. He
owned the earliest mill, Sellers Mill, in that area."

As for Hardy, I don't know any more about his origins either. The earliest
information seems to be from a South Carolina Roster book p. 854 that lists
him as being "born 2 March 1757, Johnson County, NC. He enlisted, while
residing in Chesterfield District, during 1776 or 1777 under Capt.
McMainer..." It has the number R9377 beside his name also. I haven't found
a connection to Hardy yet, but have a bunch of information on that line.

Declaration in order to obtain the benefit of the Act of Congress passed June 7th, 1832 - That he entered
the service of the United States under the following named offices and served as herein stated he was a
volunteer to serve in behalf of the United States in the year 1776 or 1777 as well as he recollects the
day or month he does not recollect. I was a private in Capt. McMainer's1 Company called out by the
authority of the State of South Carolina and march to Hadley's Point [sic, Haddrell's Point] near
Charleston, South Carolina and from Haddrell’s Point to James Island and there remained until we were
discharged. Served two months in actual service. Also in the year that Charleston was taken by the
British I was a volunteer and served a tour of three months in actual service. I with a number of others
marched under Capt. Griffy to Georgetown then to Lynches Crossway [sic, Lynches Causeway?] on
Santee River then back to Georgetown again and from place to place until discharged. I think the troops
was commanded by Col. McIntosh. Served three months and was discharged - and in the same year
that Gen. Gates [Horatio Gates] was defeated I was a volunteer to serve three months. Marched under
Capt. Stephen Jackson to Lynches Creek against the British and Tories then from place to place until
discharged by our officers. Served three months in actual services - after the above service we were all
laid off into divisions first second and third and so on and each division was to serve as it come to his

Lieutenant Jones and two tours with Lieutenant Charles Jackson of Division Service under Gen.
Marion making in all my service so far as I can recollect a period of sixteen months for which I claim a
pension but it is far short of all my services rendered the United States during the Revolutionary War as
I was called out after the company was laid off in divisions to march under Gen. Marion it is
impossible for me to make any further statement at present - I have no papers to prove any services nor
do I know of any person now living by whom I could prove my services except one man and he turned
a Tory after we had served together one tour. I could not think of making use of his testimony.
