Hello All,
 I have enclosed some infomation on Henry Co, AL and my husband's Sellers
line.  I understand that Rufus is the s/o Matthew.  Is there any
documentation?
I need some help with the parents of Amanda C. Jones if anyone knows
anything.
 Thanks

Rufus lived near Cottonwood, AL in that part that became Houston.  I think
it is about 5 miles from the Florida state line.  Nancy went to Jackson Co, FL
to get married.  And the family did a lot of traveling across the state
lines.
