My James Jefferson SELLERS was born in TN December 18, 1825. He

buried at Carr Cemetery in Maynardville, TN. J. J. was married to
BAYLESS. Their children were:
Louise Manerva Sellers, born Jun 22, 1848
William Moses Sellers, born November 15, 1849, died August 2, 1932,
buried at Greenwood Cemetery in Knoxville, TN. William was married
Ann Chesney. William was a Knox County magistrate and a member of
Baptist Church in Knoxville.

Susan Ellender Sellers, born April 6, 1856, died May 28, 1929, buried

Most of these children were born in Union County and grew up there.
I have previously posted this information, but have added a little
have received a death certificate on James Jefferson and it gives
as J. J. Sellers born Grainger County, TN
and names his mother as ELLEN
BROCK. The best I can tell on the death certificate ELlen was also
TENN. It is hard to read.
Can anyone relate to this family?
