Johnson was never in St Landry; my Hayes/Foremans were from VA to St

I have been reading some old posts about this family and thought I would put this info on this list. My husband is descended from the M.K Sellers on the 1840-50 Newton Co. census ,the 1860 Copiah Co. Ms census and the 1870 St.Landry Parish census his name is Mathew Kindrick Sellers born 1816-18.Near him on the census was Mary Sellers and A.S.Sellers age 15-20.Mary ,I believe moved from Simpson Co Ms to Newton.I recently saw in an old account book of James Ellis who owned a boarding ,stable store ect 1838 entries for M.K ,Allen and Sid Sellers I think there was a James E. Sellers as in the 1870 Williamson Co Tx a Benjamin Sellers age 22 is listed in his household.I think there is a connection between all these Sellers .Mary is sill in Newton Co in 1860 with daughters Clarissa,Melissa and Adeline missing is Amanda and Eliza .I would be interested if anyone has any connection to these Sellers.
