     Yes, There is some very good history included on the Sellars family buried
there.  And yes by all means use it. I was aware that it needed to be on
thelist,  I just did not have time to send it to you and I know you
understandwhy...
Thanks again. You have probably noted that a Sellars was the first burial
inthis place.  The Sellars connect to many families in this end of the
Purchase.

             "Oleen Pollard" <opolla@apex.net>
    That history is in Battle Kniffen and Perrin.  My son in law has the book
which I keep 99% of the time, but now it is at their home.  These families
at Pleasant Hill spilled over into many others.  We have a very good
history
in the book, covering a lot of the allied lines.  Some descendants of this
family located in Weakley Co., TN, just across the State Line from
PleasantHill in the Feliciana area.

        From:
             "Oleen Pollard" <opolla@apex.net>
    I'm sharing this information on the Sellars and hope if any of you may
detect a connection you will purchase the book.  The Sellars like all
these
families buried in the cemetery spilled over into other families and the
connections are quite extensive.  This book contains information such as
the
following with information on where they came from if it could be found,
their parents and siblings as well as their descendants.

children, James W. who married Louisa C. Burnett (dau of Brooken and
Martha
S. Perry (Rutherford Co., TN)  William C. Sellars 1846-1923 a Methodist

Other are Laura A. Sellers 1855-1862 is daughter
of John Kenny Sellers and Bethina
and Mary E. Sellers 1844-1862 is also a

Louisa C. Sellers 1854-1895 would be the
