Hi! I'm looking for the parents of Charles Luther SELLERS b. may 8,1849 Franklin, NC d. Apr 16,1927 Commerce, GA. His dad's name was Sam SELLERS and his mon was Martha ? Charles had at least one sister Hester Sellers. Little else is known of his parents. Charles was married to Susan Alice Crow and they had 13 children. If any of this sounds familiar please e-mail me. Jerry Jones Bulbman256@aol.com
Charles Luther Sellers married Susan Alice Crow on Sept 15,1878, I think in Winder, Ga. Susan was born in Winder and all the children were born there too so I have no reason to believe they were married any place else. Dates of children born from 1879-1904, I have exact dates for all thirteen if you think it will help, let me know.
HOW did we prove SAMUEL/MARTHA as parents? msh

BUT, did NOT see on 1850 census, I read-COULD be nicknamed differantly also- COULD be CIVIL WAR, ALSO? Check any SELLERS in these counties- YOUR Charles Luther SELLERS 1848 , should be on an 1850 census in NC or? AND 1860/70 CENSUS! ANYONE with info on these names/places- PLEASE send cc to me also, so can post to web page, OR best is send to this SELLERS list so, anyone working this area can respond - THANKS marie, iowa
I have a copy of Charles L. Sellers death certificate which states his father was Sam SELLERS from NC. The mothers name was not on the death certificate but I think it was listed in the family bible. My mother was the last of the thirteen children and when she moved from Georgia she turned the family bible over to a nephew and his family so it would be nearer the other family nembers. Here is a complete list of all thirteen children: H. NIMROD 12/6/1879 D. 28/7/1920 FANNIE PINK 21/7/1881 D. 3/2/1910 SAMUEL 9/5/1883 D. ? MALYAR 30/4/1885 D.6/2/1969 MURPHY 10/2/1887 D.21 /8/1951 LELA 21/12/1888 d.28/12/1968 ALBERT 17/12/1890 D. ? MACY 24/9/1892 D.23 /7/1976 H. HERSHAL 12 12/1894 D. ? C. HERMAN 7/8/1897 D.3/1/1977 MAYSILLER 12/7/1899 D.16/9/1901 MONTINE 10/8/1901 D. 6/6/1934 RUNETTE 27/12/1904 D. 19/5/1985 I also have names of spouses if anyone needs them. The Martha could be a middle name or nickname,I will try to have the family rechecked to see if there are any more clues. I think most of this info came from the bible since my mother was the youngest and some of the brothers and sisters were already married when she was born. THANKS. Jerry Jones Bulbman256@aol.com
