I do not know if they remained in NC or moved away. Some of these
could have been in the Civil War. I have not checked this out. When the war
was over many Southerns moved West.
I need to know the parents of these Sellers sometimes spelled Cellers.
help will be greatly appreciated.

Here is my Rogers line.
Reuben Rogers B: ca 1755/60 from Sussex Co. Virginia moved to Franklin Co.,
NC by Sept.10, 1784 because on this date he purchased for 250 silver
a tract of land consisting of 200 acres on Crooked Creek in Franklin Co.,
His first wife is unknown.
John Rogers B: ca 1785 married Lucinda Sellers. They had several children.
One daughter Sally Rogers was my GG Grandmother and she married Nathan
Millikin Doyle in Franklin Co., NC.

My G-G-Grandfather was Gurley Sellers, Sr. b. Jan 17, 1802 (presume
Co. N.C.). From family records, an aunt of mine recorded that "Grandpa
Gurley and bro. Manuel came from N.C. to North Alabama, then to Tenn. and
back to N. Ala. They left 8 brothers in N.C.". Gurley shows up in
Tuscaloosa Co. Al in 1840-1850 and Jefferson Co. Al in 1860 and is buried
at Blue Creek cemetery having died Oct 26, 1898. My research has led me to
believe that Bennett was one of the brothers. There is a Bennett who
appears in the Spartenburg SC 1860 census age 67 but wife's name is
Elizabeth. Also Jordan Sellers who ends up in Indiana in the 1850's and
dies1898 in Mo. I did not know there was a Manuel AND an Emanuel. I
assumed it to be a recording error and they were one and the same. Emanuel
ends up in Spartenburg SC in 1840, in Shelby Co. Ala in 1860 and eventually
in age 85 in the house of Allison Sellers in Jefferson Co. Ala. In 1830
Emanuel was charged with assualt (says he was from Franklin Co. NC) -
Bailed out by Littleberry Rogers who we guess to be his bro-in-law. I had
assumed he was the one married to Fanny Rogers. Bottom line, none of the
Gurley Sellers researchers (of which there are a number on this List) have
been able to find Gurley's parents. There is a record from the "Sellers
Letters" indicating it was Arntil Sellers from Ireland but other data seems
to indicate this might have been a recording error and that it was Arthur
Sellers Jr. in Nash Co.in the late 1700 and early 1800's. Anything you can
share with us on the Roger's/Sellers would be appreciated.
