Hi,

Saw your notes on the Sellers list as you mentioned DEHAVEN.

Attached is what I have on Thomas W Dehaven and his family.

The 1930 census may have some data to help sort out.

I show Lorene Grady/Grady Lorene Brown as his wife and she is born abt 1914. SAME year as Aradis 15 on the 1920 census. [born 1914]

Are these the same person? twins?

I show no other Thomas Dehavens in Evansville and collect them all...

Can one of you help... ??

Hope this info is useful.

Guess my math is not so hot this morning.

Aradis born 1904!! sorry about that

Isham Sellars, 54, M, farmer, $1,000/$3,000, blank
Ellen Sellars, 52, F, blank
Lavinia P. Sellars, 20, F, blank (born ca 1840)

Lavina Cellars in 1850 Union County, KY is too old to be a child of
Elizabeth Harrington Sellers, as Elizabeth would have been only 10 years
old. I thought possibly Luke Sellers had a first marriage since he is older
than Elizabeth.

GEORGIA, thank you.

Doesn't look correct. Must be studied.
Don't have marriage license.
Don't have death info

Her age is 1835 and 1838 on census. altho Nancy lists her as ca 1840??

Will cc Pat =PatAnder73@aol.com
He? has worked closely on these families, but, his chart does Not list her.
But, maybe they can give us ideas on what they have checked out

BETTY and JANE also directly connected to this family = please send info, etc


Isham Sellars 1806 dau Lavina is proven, I believe.

Isham Sellers 1754 died 1837 and had remarried Lydia before 1827 , but, his will written 1827? And only listed earlier kids?
This needs reread.
As Lydia does have female living with her in 1840 = 5/10 and others!
Daughter or granddaugher??

Thank you, appreciate.
marie, iowa

Marie,
I have been in contact with Jane McBroom. She didn't have anything on Lavinia. Maybe she over looked it. I sent her what I sent you. I was going to to back and read all the e-mails we sent back and forth but there are just to many to read and pinpoint exactly what we discussed. Nancy

Marie,
Married: Lavaina Sellers to Elbert Armstrong in Union Co. KY. October 22, 1855..

I had this in one of the boxes of information I transcribed to my PC.
Nancy

Marie,
I have read the Sellers site comments. You seem to be having a difficult time find the parents of Lavinia. I'm going to tell you the "hear say". This has been passed down for years. Maybe it's true and maybe not. Rumor is, Lavinia Sellers was Native American. Chickasaw to be exact. There again, I don't know if it's true. Martha informed all her children that she was half Chickasaw. Just thought I would let you know.
Nancy

JANE, thank you.

We have Luke Sellers , I believe son of Ephraim Sellers (son of Isham) and Rebecca living in

LAVINA 15 KY = ca 1835
SARAH 9 KY = ca 1841
F. 5F KY = ca 1845
ELIZA 2 KY

LAVINA/LEVINA, etc 1835 above , same as =
Nancy Brown Gauer
jgauer@ilnk.com
Married: Lavaina Sellers to Elbert Armstrong in Union Co. KY. October 22, 1855.. (and lived here several years.,msh)

Lavina appears to be dau of Luke, but, BIG gap in these kids and we can't prove his marriage? altho we list her as a Harrington? How proven??

there are Luke Sellers' listed in KY Civil War, But, I can't find a pension on him.

WE Need marriages, deaths, civil war info on
LUKE SELLERS and his wife and kids.

SEND what you have or tell us Who to contact in Union Co, KY, maybe.

LOST this Armstrong family after 1910 Webster Co,. KY census. any chance of deaths ? Who to contact.?

WE are living just across the River from Indiana, Illinois and KY = are we missing their records?


Thanks for caring and sharing SELLERS.

His daughter? Levina Armstrongs' daughter Martha Brown is also buried at the Shady Grove, Poole, Webster Co, Ky where some of our SELLERS/SELLARS buried.

Perhaps we can try and get a complete reading of this cemetery. Do you have? I only see a partial extraction on line.

NANCY,
THANKS.
do you have more boxes to dig in and look at info? marie, iowa As a matter of fact I have found more. This information came from my father and obituary records. I cannot prove any of this. I do know, from my childhood and my father that these people were cousins. They spent quite a lot of time visiting my grandparents. Dad confirms they are first cousins to his father.. He just doesn't know how they are related. He said he can't remember their parents. My Dad at 81 has a very good memory. They have to be grandchildren of Lavinia W. Sellers. Don't they?

I hope this is more help.

Marie,
I found the following on the LDS web site. E. J. Armstrong Md.Govenia Cellers November 14, 1855. Christian, Kentucky
I'm sending it to you because I have seen this before and I can't remember where. I don't know what to make of it. Do you think this is my E. J. Armstrong?
I do know Loren Grady Brown AKA Aunt Bob Martha Armstrong Brown's grand daughter.informed me that E. J. Armstrong had a brother they called L. Armstrong.

How do you go about getting the Armstrong information into the Rootsweb Archives under the Armstrong name? I think it would be beneficial to finding more Armstrongs too, if this was under that sir name as well.

I haven't talked to my Dad yet today. He must be out and about. He isn't answering his phone. I left a message.

More later
Nancy

===

SEND me Exact link to this = haven't found on lds,

But, these names are on the 1850 Union Co, Ky census , just can't follow backwards or forwards. just did yours in 1860, etc

YOU sent the marriage from UNION CO, KY from mothers notes or box?
will work a little more on lds records, thanks.

marie, iowa

=

I would wait a few days/week. then I would post on the Armstrong board or Union Co, Ky board with PROVEN info only.
and see if any results.

The 1850 Union Co, KY census is Very unclear and I am sure others need info also . This would be a good starting point for info.
Otherwise , go to the kids we know are Lavina's and ask for info on that surname.

Thanks, marie, iowa

I haven't talked to my Dad yet today. He must be out and about. He isn't answering his phone. I left a message.
Great for him!

E. J ARMSTRONG

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

Marie,

I have been looking into more info that is not on my PC. (In the Boxes)
I have found an Armstrong family that my brother states are kin. He went to high school with them. The Armstrong boys were at my Mom and Dad's as much as they were at home. The Armstrong boys parents said we were kin.

I followed the line back as far as I can.
Here is the last one.
The old folks are buried in Olive Branch Cemetery, Hanson, KY. It says Hopkins county. I thought Hanson was in Webster county. I'm not sure.
Do you know where I can see on line the index of that cemetery.

This is the site for the obit for the Armstrong.

http://browning.evcpl.lib.in.us/

Noah c. Armstrong, DOD 10-13-1955....There are two. At the bottom of the one it states his father is James and his mother is M??? or N????.
Maybe the cemetery records will help lead me to Martha Ann Armstrong's brothers and sisters.
Thanks so much
Nancy

=

NANCY, the usgenweb page for Hopkins Co, Ky (yes Hanson, is here, msh)
Some of these counties were made at diff times from SAME land.

http://www.rootsweb.com/~kyhopkin/

I only extracted ONE NOAH ARMSTRONG, sorry.

NOAH ARMSTRONG 1882
one appears to be son of SAMUEL 1869 , son of JAMES 1846, SON OF ?? (ck 1850 Hopkins Co, KY census
and then to Webster Co., KY


will try and follow thro to 1850.
YOU have to read each census line for 1850, unless the county has it extracted.

good nite
marie, iowa

=

NANCY, my brother Robert Willard Sellers, dna 14430, would only link back to SELLERS, which we don't prove to any older yet. http://www.sellers-sellars-sollars-zellars.net/sellers_dna_results.htm

Your Dad would be a BROWN? ,, SO if trying to prove your link to LUKE SELLERS, possible father of Lavina Sellers, mother of your Martha Armstrong Brown. you would need a brother, son, uncle , nephew,cousin of Luke Sellers. you would need a Male Sellers.

If you are trying to prove the Brown family, same thing applies.

NANCY, I don't have anymore PROOF than before. Could use a death certificate or obit or marriage certificate on her. to help prove her parents. Lavina Sellers appears to be the daughter of LUKE SELLERS. She is living with him in 1850 census and probably the daughter born 1835/40 on the 1840 census with him. Until we get more documents thats the most we can prove. I did NOT find Luke or Elizabeth Sellers after 1870 Union Co., Ky Need their death info = from death files or a childs record. UNION CO, KY usgenweb page may have look up info? As long as the family lived there, you'd think a cemetery, tombstone, but many hard times then. Thanks for sharing your family. marie, iowa
