M. Buntin" <Mac43@compuserve.com>
Hi. My name is Mac Buntin. My wife is a descendant of
through Ann Peoples Sellers. I saw on Erin's
Page (I believe) that the
lineage started with William Sellers (b. bef 1657), then John, Matthew,
Benjamin, then Elisha. Do you have the sources for William
and John. I
see a partial source for Matthew in a deed where Benjamin mentions
father. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
MAC - Please send us a small chart of Names, Dates, Places on your
SELLERS and PEOPLES.
This lets Us and Others Find you.
We will be glad to share the Deeds, Etc we have on these families.
And would appreciate any documents, etc you have found. Thanks for sharing,
My wife, Gloria Grissett Buntin, is connected to the Mintz and Sellers
through her great grandfather, George Washington Grissett b. 1819.
married Hannah Jane Mintz, daughter of Henry Mintz b. 1774
Peoples Sellers, b. 1782. The dates of Henry Mintz and Ann
from "Descendants of William and Sarah Grissett of Brunswick
Carolina" booklet by Bessie Mae Stover
Frink, from material collected by
Versie (Grissett) Parker. Some info on the Mintz family comes
Families of the Old South", by Moore. Several of my wife's family
live in the Brunswick Co., NC area and
we have been to several of the
Grissett, Mintz cemeteries, some of which are on private land.
I have seen many postings
on the Rootsweb and Genforum and other
web sites, but rarely do I see a source. That is my reason
about the sources for the Sellers family beginning with William
I have no sourced information
on parents of Ann Peoples Sellers.
Only that information which is on the Web, which I'm sure you have.
Sellers family apparently has been very confusing and I am trying
it together. Many of the people I have e-mailed that have
longer use that e-mail address and cannot be reached. Thanks
From the info that I
have seen, it seems that Ann Peoples parents
were Elisha Sellers and Sarah (Jane Peoples?), not Mary Willets.
have no direct source. Just looking at children's names
and dates of
birth. I e-mailed Carlah about the Sarah Jane Peoples
source, but the
e-mail came back. Does anyone know? Thanks, Mac
