FROM CHARMAINE
two different Sellers groups, the German ones out of Lincoln and Rutherford Co., NC and the Sellers lines out of Burke, via Mecklenburg, via Where?, both ended up in Haywood/Macon and those other far western NC counties before taking off to new frontiers,

I believe we have proven the PA Sellers into this area.

I believe we need these DNA tests to prove or disprove these families, msh

This is what I have about John Sellers (b.c.1750?), son of Phillip of PA.
John Sellers- settled in NC, died about 1814 in Lincoln Co.
1806 Lincoln Co, NC deed (21:516) from Alex Dickey.
His estate record lists sale of property on May 13, 1814. Purchasers were: John, George, Elizabeth, Jacob and Peggy Sellers.
Hope I have the correct John Sellers here.

NEED COPY OF ORIGINAL, msh



JULIE, Thanks, the numbers will make it easier to obtain a copy.
Do ANY of our members already have a copy of this DEED? that you could copy
and send to us?
Do WE have a member that lives close that could make us a copy.
ANY help in obtaining this document, appreciated.
We have a copy of the Will. But, the DEED included Other names of SELLERS.
(Maybe, it is the ESTATE settlement, we need?msh)
Thanks, marie, iowa

I'm descended from the George Sellers you mention and his third (or possibly second) wife, Anna
Mary Froneberger. George and Anna Mary were buried in the Froneberger family cemetery (since
destroyed, I believe) in Gaston County, NC. They married 3 March 1818 in Lincoln Co and had as
many as eight children. (It's not proven that they are all from this marriage though.) I am descended
from Eli Sellers 1819-1902. Newton, Philip, and Abraham all also had children and at least some of
their descendents still live in Gaston/Lincoln Counties. Email me for more detailed info.
=================
WHERE are these kids in 1850 or before? msh

The Sellers Family of Lincoln and Cleveland Counties, NC

  Philip Heinrich Söllers (1698?-1769) was descended from a family of butchers in Germany. He   came to Philadelphia on board the ship the James Goodwill in 1728. Travelling with him were his  wife and at least one small son, Philip (1724-17??). They settled near Telford, PA. According to the   DAR, Philip was a soldier in the Revolutionary War. He had many children; the two eldest were   George and John.

  George Sellers (1756-1839) and his brother John migrated to North Carolina during the 1790s. They   settled in what was then Lincoln County and became farmers. John seems to have had no children   (he left his property to his nephews), but George and his wife Susanna Best had several, including a   son also named George who has been the source of some confusion. For a long time we believed   we were descended from the George Sellers who married Anna Mary Froneberger, but in actuality
  that George had only one son, Philip. He died not long after the birth of Philip. We are really   descended from John Sellers (17??-before 1850?) the son of the elder George and brother-in-law to   Anna Mary.

  Not much is known about John Sellers. He appears in the 1820 and 1830 censuses, but not in 1840   and his wife Mary Rush (1800-after 1850) is listed as the head of the household in 1850. Living   with her are several of her sons, including Eli (1819-1902). Eli did not marry until after the Civil   War, in which he participated briefly. He was discharged due to rheumatism after about half a year
  - not surprising when you realize he was 45 when he enlisted. He married Martha Lackey
  (1844-1910) in 1868. She was 24 and he was 49.

  Their son Thomas had a large family: thirteen children over a period of 27 years. Below is a picture   of a family reunion from 1933.
