Subject: Re: RE: [SELLERS]
I have a few questions after reviewing the Nathan Sellers Will transcript.
This is my analysis of the Will of Nathan Sellers dated 18 July 1824.
wife Sarah [--?--]
son Nathan Sellers
Mary (Sellers) Fleming
Jane (Sellers) Duggins
Elizabeth (Sellers) Snodgrass died before 18 July 1824
Jane (Snodgrass) Walsh
Sarah (Sellers) Snodgrass
Margaret (Sellers) Bell --- is this a mis-reading of the handwriting???
Should it be Neil ???? if so then her children are:
Mary Ann Neil
If these children are not Margaret's, then whose????
Nancy (Sellers) Hawkins
Ellsa (Sellers) Cox ... might this be Elisa???
Rebecca (Sellers) McCracken
Who do the McCoy children belong to?????
My guess is Rebecca (Sellers) McCracken
... again a possible mis-reading of the handwriting.
I believe I have accounted for all the names in the Will.
