      JEAN, Thanks - where was William and Mary married?
Where was Philip and Mary married?
Before 1841 Cleveland Co was Rutherford and Lincoln

I have always kinda thought this George and John SELLERS could be the
ones from Philip SELLERS from Bucks/Mont Co PA - Not Proven, but, only
ones I could find in the time frame .
Have you Read the 1850 Cleveland Co,NC Census? Need ages, etc - We need
several actual readings, we have indexes, Need Ages,etc
http://showcase.netins.net/web/sellerfamily/ncclev.htm
is our Cleveland Co,  NC page and you can use the links , I believe to
go to Rutherford and Lincoln Co's, etc.
PHILLIP SELLERS, dies 1850 in Cleveland Co - has nephew PHILIP SELLERS,
son of GEORGE SELLERS. Geo could be the one in 1790 Rutherford and
1800's Lincoln -IF we had some more ages, from these census, maybe could

prove more. Thank You for sharing SELLERS, marie, iowa

MARIE, Thanks.  Phillip Andrew Sellers first appears in the HH of William
and
Mary Ann Neill Sellers in 1860 census of Gaston Co., NC, 209/182, White
Pine
P.O.
William Sellers 35, Mary 35, PHILLIP 12, Barbara 10, Elizabeth 8, Francis
6,
George 4 and Amanda 2.

William and Mary Ann Neill Sellers also appear in 1850 census Cleveland Co.
p.176: William Sellers 26, Mary A. 26, William A. 5, and Barbara 2.  Altho
Phillip was apparently left out as child, these are the correct parents and
family.

According to death certificate of John T. Sellers, son of Phillip Andrew,
Phillip Andrew Sellers was born in Cleveland Co., NC.  And according to
death
certificate of Phillip Andrew Sellers, his parents were William Sellers and
Mary Ann Neill.  They are thought to have married in Cleveland Co. as were
Phillip Andrew Sellers and Mary A. Beam.

Phillip Andrew Sellers and wife, Mary, are listed in 1870 census Gaston
Co.,
73/73: Phillip Sellers 23, Mary A. 28 and Mary Ida 11/12.

Also in 1850 census Cleveland Co. p. 184 is this HH: Phillip Sellers 67,
Phillip Sellers 29, Elizabeth Sellers 33. This Phillip Sellers is old
enough
to have been father of William Sellers.  THANKS.  Jean Gayle.
