Bill:  I FOUND IT!  The problem was a poor memory.  The will was in Moore Co. NC not in Cumberland and the will was Adam Kellons not Thomas.  Kellons is one of the common mis-spellings of Keeling.  I noticed that some of the Keeling family pronounces the name kind of funny and I can see why it causes mis-spellings.  Accents are not only in the speaker but sometimes they are in the person who hears the names as well! 
 
This is what I have: Bear in mind that I have no idea who any of these people are. I collect Keeling material and remembered the Sellers name because no where else does it appear with a Keeling name, in any form,  that I have found.
 
Moore County NC  Will of Adam Kellons/Kellens written 5 August 1802 and proved Nov term. 1803  Witnesses:  James Campbell, John and Nancy Sellers 
 
The first several lines is the religious preamble that many wills of the period carry.  The data is thus:
"I give and bequeath unto my dearly beloved wife Sarah Kellen all my real and personal estate to her heirs and assigns forever after paying all of my just debts and usual charges and I do hereby contitute and appoint my beloved wife SArah and John Sellers Jun. my executors to this my last will and testament revoking and annulling all other former wills and bequest heretofore by me made. In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand and seal this fifth day of August 1802."
 
Sarah Kellins will was written 4 Febraury 1804 and proved February term 1809 Moore Co. NC
Witnesses: James Campbell and John Sellers Jr.
 
The first few lines are the religious preamble.
"First I give and bequeath to Nancy Sellers my gray mare, a cow and myh "Bowtat?" to her and her heirs forever. (The next three words are difficult to read but my best interpretation is...)
"Also I would bequeath to the REST of John Sellers Sr. children (except John Sellers  Jr.) all of the rest of my personal property to be equally divided amonth them and constiture, appoint and ordain John Sellers Jr. my sole executor to this my last will and testament. In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand and seal this 4 day of February 1804." 
 
The  ( ) around the "except John Sellers Jr" is in the will.  My best guess at interpreting this is that Adam and Sarah were quite aged.  John Sellers Sr. appears to also be deceased but left children that are loved by Adam and Sarah.  My best guess is that their daughter married John Sr. and that John Jr. and Nancy are the children of John Sr. and their daughter.   The John Sellers that witnessed the will of Adam did not use the Sr. nor the Jr. with his signature.  The John Sellers who witnessed Sarah's will used the Jr. with his signature. Because Adam specifies John Sellers Jr. as his executor, I would guess that John Sellers Sr. is either deceased or not able to perform such a service.   No Jr. or Sr with the signature suggests to me that John Sr. is deceased and the designation is unnecessary.  Only through Sarah's will do we know that there was a Sr and a Jr. and that Sr. had more children that John  Jr.  While there is nothing that clearly says Nancy Sellers is a grandchild, I would place my bets on it. 
 
When I got this copy of the originals in the court house in Moore Co., I had only a few minutes to be there.  Therefore, I did not check the deed books.  There may be a deed passing the land to John Sellers Jr.  However, often when land passed within families, there was no new deed written.  Land could pass for many generations within a family and no new deed would be written until the land was sold outside of the family.That was why wills were recorded in the deed books before the Revolution.  This was very soon after the Revol.
 
Please feel free to pass this on to your Sellers list. Perhaps some researcher out there will be interested in it and either be able to identify some of these people or do the research to do so. I would appreciate it if you would be able to pass back to me whatever data they are able to come up with.  I know this isn't your Frances but then, we don't know who the children were and your Frances could be one of the un-named grandchildren. Good Luck!
