Sellers, James 1st Lieutenant



This is believed to be James W. Sellers, John's oldest son, and
Irvin's older brother.  He supposely died during the Civil War and his
body was returned home.  He is buried in Zion Hill Cem, Smith Co., MS.  After
the C.W., his son John D., took his mother, Mary, and some of the family
and moved westward and settled in Fairfield, TX.  She died and is buried
in Stewards Mill Cem., TX (d. 6-10-1883)

Ginny,
       I have him listed in my family pages, but I have it noted that this
may not be the correct James.  The reason I do count him is because he
married Mary Margaret Speed and family stories connect her to our line.
However, he is 1 of only 2 of the 18 children that I can't pen all the
information down for.  Put him, but place a "?" until we can discover for
sure.

Hope this is of some use.  Mary Sellers Orman was the person I was looking
for, and she lived and died right there in Simpson Co.

James Sellers' wife Priscilla was the daughter of John M. Brown who was born
abt 1798 in GA., and Elizabeth (?), born abt 1803 in SC (according to 1850
census).  They must have moved from GA to MS about 1836 since they had a
daughter born about then in MS and one a year older born in GA.

Thanks for your help!!!

BETH - thank you!
On the 1880 census - clear to right hand side - should have told the
states parents were born or was it empty?

I don't have the early marriages for SIMPSON CO, but, I believe we
should look and see who this RICHARD WALKER married - ANNIE? DID you
copy their kids - were they born in MS?
She is old enough to be their mother ? and remarried second time?
a possibility!
and living close to BROWNS in 1840 census!
Thanks for sharing, marie, iowa

Subject:        Odell name

I have an Odell middle name for one of my Sellers family.  It is for Julia
Odell Love whose mother was Mattie Sellers.  This is from Simpson County
MS
and I have found the name as a middle name for a descendent of one of the
other Sellers branches of my family.  Finally I noticed on the list here
recently that there were Sellers buried in an Odell Cemetery in SC.  Does
any
one know anything about an Odell connect to the Sellers, especially from
the
Carolinas?

Thanks.

Can you tell me more about Mattie?  The reason I ask is that my Aunt is
named Mattie Lea Sellers.  She was named after her Aunt Mattie
(supposedly,
but possibly a cousin who was close to the family) and her aunt Gettie Lee
Sellers (who is sister to Ernest Talmadge Sellers, son of Hiram Sellers,
son
of Irvin (Ervin) Sellers. . . . just a long shot.

The following query was published in the Summer 2001 issue of Mississippi
Geneaological Connections.  Some of you may connect.

"Need names of parents of William and Mary Sellars who were in Simpson
County (MS) early.  They are shown on the 1820 census with sons Mack, Jesse,
and James, and several daughters.  One daughter, Elizabeth, m. 1st Abe
Thurmond, 2nd Richard Walker (was his second wife), and 3rd Joe Loftin.  The
Sellars came to Mississippi from South Carolina.  Is anyone working on the
Sellars lineage?  Bobbye Harkins, 4065 Boxwood Circle, Jackson, MS 39211"

Message Board Post:

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.
