Thanks for sharing SELLERS. marie, iowa
I don't recall if I have spoken with your relatives or not.
since I have been online for 7 years or so now. I don't know about the Arkansas
connection either. I do have a copy of family info from Crooked Creek
Church in Crittenden Co., Ky. That is where I found these children's names.
Joseph and Mary Hughes also had a son James Licurgus. Do you know the
significant if any of Licurgus name?
If you would like the Heath info that I have, just let me know.
happy to share what I have.
HEATHER, we have the extractions ONLY of the will - A writing of
complete will would be nice to have posted on Mathew SELLERS 1743 page along with the
names that connect to his kids. We have your/most names on the Livingston Co, KY
page ANYWAY, yes we could use copy of the will. Thanks, marie, iowa
