I am attempting research into Sellers & also Gaunt (mothers maiden
name). I am originally from NJ
& now reside in FL. I believe my father had English linage & I know my mother did. Her parents
immigrated from England. Lets compare notes.

PLEASE - Send some Names/Dates/Places =
Myself - Bertram Lynn Sellers, Jr. - Born Englewood, NJ - 4 Dec 1935
Father - Bertram Lynn Sellers - Born Mount Holly, NJ - 6 Apr 1902
Father - Cornelius Elmer Sellers - Born ? - 1874
Mother - Laura Mae Sellers nee Armstrong - Born ?
Mother - Ann Gauntt - Born Masonville, NJ - 14 Jan 1894
Father - Thomas Kirkland Gauntt - Born ? - 23 May 1862
Mother - Jane Gauntt nee Dunstan - Born Manchester,
England - 28 Apr 1863
I know that my Mothers parents migrated from England, but do not
date. My Father claimed English heritage but I have nothing to verify
The history on that side of the family is spotty. The spelling of Gauntt,
Gaunt, Gant seems to vary with the person. In looking at English genealogy
I find that this is a common occurrence, I guess because Olde English
spelling had no definite rules for so long.
I need help. I have reached a dead end at my Grandfather's parents. Here
is what I know for sure.
Great Grandfather - ? Sellers (could be Sellars)
Great Grandmother - Catherine Owen Fox - b. Sept. 1849, Phila., PA
Grandfather - Cornelius Elmer Sellers - b. 1874, York?, PA - d. 1918
Grandmother - Laura May Armstrong - b. May 7, 1882, Burlington, NJ - d.
Oct. 23, 1970
Father - Bertram Lynn Sellers - b. Apr. 6, 1903, Mount Holly, NJ - d.
Jan. 23, 1995
Mother - Ann Gauntt - b. Jan. 14, 1894, Masonville, NJ - d. Jan. 19, 1986
Catherine was re-married in 1882 to George W. Moore who raised my
Grandfather. We assume that ? Sellers died, but have no hard data.
My Father's siblings are George Moore Sellers, Catherine M. Sellers,
Nellie Elizabeth Sellers. At this time we know of no siblings to my
Can anyone make a connection?
We have acquired a book of the Sellers in Pennsylvania & will be
research it for you. It didn't help us yet, but may assist someone else.
Do we list a will for Abraham or Sophia SELLERS?
You have our Bucks Co page=
See if you can find more info and advise. Thanks,
Hi, I have not checked dates but it appears that this may be connect
Leonard Sellers,dying in Bucks in 1805. By his second wife, an Abraham was
born but I have found
no one tracking these children. My line is via his first born son, Philip
Henry, who was born in Bucks Cnty and died in Franklin Cnty. I do have
limited info provided by a lady who
has been investigating for many years.
