GASTON CO, NORTH CAROLINA (made in 1846 Lincoln Co)
lays next to bounded by the state of South Carolina and Cleveland, Lincoln, and Mecklenburg counties.

 

Prior to surveys of 1764 and 1772, "much of the territory in the north-central and north-western part of South Carolina was considered to be North Carolina.

The South Carolina counties of Marlboro, Chesterfield, Lancaster, York, Chester, Union, Spartanburg, Cherokee, and portions of Greenville, Laurens and Newberry are involved." (Guide to South Carolina Research and Records, by Brent Holcomb, Colombia, SC, 1991, p. 37) Much of Tryon County, NC became SC after the 1772 survey. In fact, the Tryon County courthouse had to be moved!

In Reply to: Re: George Sellers line in Gaston Co, NC by Mindy Green  of 940

"I was at the Froneberger family cemetery in 1976. It is located north of
Bessmer City, Gaston Co., NC. Has it been destroyed since then? There are markers for

Anna M. Sellers
3 Jan. 1793 -27 Nov. 1869

George Sellers
Died: 3 Dec. 1839  <<places date of birth approx. 1756>>
Aged 83 yrs.

This George is 37 years older than Anna. Are these the one you are looking
for?

a partial roster of the Froneberger Cemetery off Miles Bess Rd. I visited this cemetery on February 27, 2001. I hope to have a more complete record up shortly, as well as photos. These graves are in order, left to right. -------------------------- Barbary Sellers died Feb 6 1845 in her 55th year
Philip Sellers died Jan 17 1852 in the 67th year of his age
Susannah Sellers died Jan 19 1843 aged 83 years
George Sellers died Dec 3rd 1839 aged 83 years
Anna M. Sellers born Jan 3 1793 died Nov 22 1869
C. (or G) Sellers died May 22, 1836
Susannah's and George's are identical, down to being signed by the same initials This headstone is very crudely carved, and I believe it to be George Sellers, Jr's
