I'm looking for information on the Sellers family. My grandmother was
Corabelle Sellers, b. 1886 in Kansas. She married Arthur Gard and they lived in the
Chelan area. Her brother was William Sellers, b. 1880 and d. 1977 in
Yakima.
There were three other sisters: Stella Sellers Crow, Hattie Sellers Carrey,
and Minnie Sellers Byrd. Any help of any of these folks would be greatly
appreciated.

==============================

MYRTLE - do you know which town/county in KS?
WHEN did they go to WA?
Sending it thro our SELLERS discussion group and see if any of our KANSAS
SELLERS
can help.

Hi Marie,

Thanks for replying to my query re Sellers.  I don't have a town/county in
KS.  My grandmother was born in 1876 in Kansas and married in Washington
state.  I don't have the marriage record, but my grandfather was in
Washington, and my dad was born in 1908 in Washington state.  Not much to
give you, but that is all I have.  If we can get anything at all, it would
be a help.  Thanks again.
Myrtle



MYRTLE -
I only have SELLERS extractions on families-
Our SELLERS may have Info, IF they know Where you are in Kansas =

OR does ANYONE have 1900 WASHINGTON state INDEX of CENSUS=?

DO you have an OBIT on ANY of these families to show birth place? etc?
1925 census of WASHINGTON would Show You PARENTS =

DO a Little More Work and ADVISE and I'm Sure Our SELLERS can Help

Subject:  [WADOUGLA-L] Sellers/Crow Families
 

I am looking for descendants of the Sellers and Crows families that lived
in and around the Watervillie and Chelan areas.  Specifically, Corabelle
Sellers, b. Abt. 1876, sisters: Minnie Sellers Byrd, Stella Sellers Crow,
and Hattie Sellers Carrey.  Stella Sellers was married to Henry Crow.
Corabelle was married to Arthur G. Gard.  Any information would be helpful.

Thanks,
Myrtle (Gard) Feldenzer

    Thanks for responding.  I believe you answered another query I submitted in
KS.  I have NOT been able to get anything on these Sellers.  The only thing
I have is the following on my grandmother, Cora (or Corabelle) Sellers:

This was part of Obit in the Enumclaw (WA) Courier Herald.

    Cora (Sellers/Gard) Hall passed away June 4 (presume year to be 1959,
as
year was not  shown in cut-out article).  Born July 18, 1886 in Kansas, she
was 73 years of age when she died on June 4.  She was buried in Enumclaw,
WA.  Three sisters were: Minnie (Sellers) Byrd of Everett, WA, Hattie
(Sellers) Carrey of Hemet, CA, Stella (Sellers) Crow (deceased, but had
lived in Waterville, WA).  Stella was married to Henry Crow.  One brother
was William Sellers of Yakima, WA.

I could not find a WA 1900 Census, but I know Cora Sellers was in WA before
1908, as my dad (Rodney A. Gard) was born in Chelan, WA on September 19,
1908.  Cora was married to Arthur G. Gard probably a year or two before
that.

That is all I have, and I haven't been able to find anything on these
people
at all except on the SSDI:
    -  William Sellers b. May 1880 and d. April 1977 in Yakima, WA.
    -  Hilda (Hattie) Carrey b. 3 January 1891, d. February 1984 in Pomona,
CA
    -  Minnie Byrd, b June 9, 1875, d. April 1975 in Everett, WA.

I'm assuming the above were also born in Kansas, but don't have any proof.

I'm really anxious to find something on my grandmother.  Any help would be
appreciated.
Thanks,
Myrtle
ANY help would be appreciated.

>MYRTLE - just sent response/question  to your Douglas Co, WA query
>And  see we have Some Info back to KS on this FAMILY=



MYRTLE - haven't had time (or took time) to recheck, except when I reread from original I found the date correction - believe I sent -

YES, the initials after age = STATE abbreviations

(INDIANA was shown different in 1850 IOWA  census anyway and IOWA was written out=don't know if that shows up in ALL census or Not- Federal census, so maybe)

The State shown as Indiana where born, could be a clue to where family came from =
ESP, this info was probably given by whom she was living with.

OTHER census will prove/disprove - USE as a guide/suggestions

KIDS seem to still be born in KS till ?
Someone died or possibly divorce = NEED county kids born, so can check That KS county info

MY SOUNDEX does NOT show AGES or Where these people born that the SELLERS kids are living with =
1900 WASHINGTON STATE=

YES, WM SELLERS born 1880 OBIT, could Help
ANY of the brother/sisters obits could help-

MY CENSUS INDEXES on 1880/1900 soundex= only families with kids
And ONLY SELLERS-
USE only as Guide for Counties to Study-
BUT, if you copy other families in KNOWN Counties you may find a lead and THEN you can Go
Study that county - Little Faster than checking Each county, etc

IF you can read this 1900 WHITMAN CO, WA census for ALL NAMES, DATES, PLACES OF BIRTH - please SEND

MYRTLE - do a Search on= USGENWEB and go to States, go to WA, go to WHITMAN Co and try a Lookup - Just give the Exact Names we have and ask for census reading or family info -
IF you Need more Help in this field - Yell

WHERE'S  our WASHINGTON STATE SELLERS? for helping on Census Lookup?

Thanks for Sharing,

 Hi Marie,I am still trying to absorb all the info you sent me from the Washington State 1900 Census on the Sellers family I have been searching for.  I have a couple questions on this info.  Specifically, on Cora Sellers. (This was my grandmother).  Your information said:  "WHITMAN CO= CORA Sollers 13IN, b. July 18, 1886,  living with CHARLES MOORE.Now I'm sure it's Whitman County (which I didn't know they every lived).  Her age was 13 at the time of the census.  The IN following the age?  Does that mean where she was born? The same for all the others, does the abbreviated state following the age mean place of birth? Do you have access to all the census's?  Or, are they available anywhere on the internet? I gave you all the information I had, except I am in the process of obtaining an obituary of a brother(?) of Cora's.  Hopefully, I'll get it within the week.  That will be on William Sellers, b. 1880 and died April 29, 1977 in Yakima, WA. If you can answer the above questions, it would be helpful.  Also, are you related to any of these Sellers in Washington state?  Plus, maybe you can tell me where to go to find the census for 1910, etc., if you don't have access to any more. Thanks for your help, and I'll keep you posted if I come up with anymore.Myrtle


Looking for a link to Charles Sellers and Nancy Foster, who I just located
in the 1870 Orange County, IN census.  They moved from Indiana to Kansas
and had the following children:  William (Albert or Bert) Sellers,
Corabelle Sellers, Minnie Sellers, Hattie Sellers, Stella Sellers, and
perhaps more.  If anyone can help me with any dates or names on this
family, I would appreciate hearing.
Thanks,
Myrtle 



CHARLES SELLERS/NANCY F. FOSTER/4-13-1870/VERM CO,IL



MYRTLE - This appears to be Ambrose SELLERS , son of Robert and Sarah Hall
SELLERS
from NC to Wash and Clark Co's  IN. Will send this thru our SELLERS
discussion group and see if any of them recognize  any of these kids.

WHERE/When did we go in KS?

OUR CLARK CO, IN info = CLICK on this =
http://www.netins.net/showcase/sellerfamily/inclark.htm
And I believe you can follow the hi-lighted links and go back and forth and
kinda follow them. Don't know if I saw in 1840?

SEND us Whatever you can on the child you connect to , married when/where
and went to?
Thanks, marie, iowa



Charles Sellers and Nancy Foster were on the 1870 Orange County, IN Census
with no children listed.  Sometime before 1880 they went to Kansas as most
of the children were born there.  My grandmother, Cora Belle Sellers, b.
July 18, 1886, showed on the 1900 WA state Census that she was born in IN;
but her obit said she was born in KS.  I don't know; if I could find out, I
could get the birth certificate.  Also, the brother of Cora, William Bert
Sellers, on his copy of WWI Civilian Draft Registration shows he was born
May 22, 1879 but his application for SS shows him born 22 May 1880 in
Osborn, Kansas.   The other children and dates are:
        Hilda (Hattie) Sellers, b. 3 January 1891
        Minnie Sellers, b. October 31, 1880 (per SSDI)
        Stella Sellers, b. Abt. 1891
        Francis Sellers, b. Abt. 1893
        Goldie Sellers, b. Abt. 1897
        Harrison Sellers, b. Abt. 1888

ANY information of these children, but especially the parents, would really
be appreciated.
Thanks for your help.

MYRTLE - Thanks for Staying in here and getting more info = Only way we are going to prove these SELLERS.
I don't have the ages of the Charles and Nancy Foster listed on the 1870 Orange Co,IN census index. I requested a look up today and will advise.
Thought this could be Ambrose Sellers wife Nancy and son Charles listed next door on the 1860 Clark Co,IN
But, Kinda think Ambrose and Nancy son born ca 1857 - too young to be same as IL marriage?

Charles SELLERS and Nancy FOSTER were married 1870 VERM CO, IL

CAN'T FIND on 1880 soundex census = IA, MO, AR, KS, IL, IN

Where did your info on WM SELLERS parents come from?
OR where did your info on CHARLES and NANCY being PARENTS come from?
PLEASE understand, we Need this Proof.

1880 OSBORNE CO, KS
T.J.SELLERS 36OH
CHARLES 13 IN SON
BETTIE J. 10 IN
MARY A. 8 IN
WM W. 5 IN
SARAH 3 IN
MELISSA BRURY 27 WI, MISTRESS

They should be on an 1870 IN census index and maybe a marriage for T.J.SELLERS-
WHO may be THOMAS SELLERS=
Osborne County, KS 1883 List of Pensioners on the Roll
180, 244  Sellers, Thomas

KANSAS has 1885 State Census - Believe We could Use one - We Need to find Parent to Prove.
KEEP on Searching and Sharing, marie, iowa



I do have a couple proofs of Charles Sellers and Nancy Foster being parents
of Cora Belle Sellers and William Sellers.  I have William Sellers
"Application for Social Security Account Number" where is lists parents.  I
have Cora Belle Sellers and Arthur G. Gard's "Marriage Return" where it
lists her parents as Charles and Nancy Foster.  That paper was from Chelan
County, WA dated 1906.  The sisters of Cora Belle I met when I was a kid,
so
know they were sisters, but I don't have any documentation on them.



MYRTLE - Great - thats proof enough -

SO = WE have =

========
DOESN'T APPEAR TO BE SAME AS VERM CO, IL marriage?
BUT, we haven't proven ALL these kids and marriages
I  believe the Other CHARLES SELLERS here in Orange Co,IN was married in IL/another Co-
WE MAY need some more 1860? IL census?
DO YOU HAVE?

SHOULD have 1850 VERM CO, IL CENSUS - but, its Not posted- will look
 VERM CO, IL lays on the VERM CO, IN border and I believe cousin Robert stated they were NOT connected to his family - That May have been the Other Charles Sellers here!
check out more kids-

AS a Last Note, I am sending copy to Robert SOLLARS who has much relation in Verm Co, IL and Verm Co, IN

AND we Should ALL try and send info on ANY IL and IN census we have-
HOW can we FIND them, IF we don't even have the Census Info posted, etc!
THANKS, marie, iowa
=============
ROBERT, this may Not make sense, AS not all letters etc here, BUT, this family (Myrtle's) is in WA state in 1900 and didn't Your WM or one of your family have a child CHARLES?
CAN you send me his family chart?
I will try and find 1860 Verm Co, Il census info and see if that helps us find this family -
YOU can help faster? Thanks, marie, iowa

JOHN - Yes, on a Search and NOT member, MANY letters come thru this way as a COPY
of same sent to you.
(SEARCH engines SEND info this way)
BUT, if you are member and receive copy of Original letter , you wouldn't receive the COPY and
brackets.
BEST, I can explain.

SUBJECT = should use the Surname of that group = ours SELLERS
next = /NAME/AGE/COUNTY/STATE
Gives you the Best possible coverage and our SELLERS can find/know you..

EXAMPLE =
SELLERS/MONOS /1785VA/1820PICKAWAY CO, OH/1850 TIPTON CO, IN  /1860 DEC CO, IA
THIS means I have a =
MONOS SELLERS born ca 1785 VA that was in PICKAWAY CO, OH ca 1820 and in 1850 TIPTON CO, IN and
in 1860 DECATUR CO, IA

OR a subject LINE of = SELLERS/MONOS1785/TIPTON CO, IN/DEC CO, IA
will give you a Lot of Info to OTHERS to find you.
AND that is what we are trying to do = FIND SELLERS to Each Other.
WHEN you Find a Cousin = IT won't make Any diff if you have Brackets or Spellings or etc.
GET that info to your County/State, esp on SELLERS list.
