Marie: On January 12 my son Ron Goodwin sent you a letter asking
about Mary Alice Sellers she was bon Nov. 18, 1871, do not know where
her parents lived but they were John Sellers and Katie Brown.
Mary Alice Sellers married
William H. Goodwin on September 13, 1890, probally in Yalobusha
county, MS. She died on September 13, 1928 and is buried in the
Terza Cemetary, on Highway 6, between 6 and 8 miles east of
Batesville. MS. I do have a picture of their gravestone. We are
trying to find where her parents John Sellers and Katie Brown lived
when they were born and died. I believe that John Sellars who
married Sallie Diffee on August 01, 1889 might have been Mary Alice
Sellars brother. Can you be of any further help?
SHIRLEY - Thanks - How did we prove John SELLERS/KATIE BROWN as parents?
Death Certificate or Obit?
I don't believe we have ever found them on an 1870 CENSUS - That is what
we need now- So can study that county =
You have Rons page , so you can follow links to counties/states we do
ANY info you have on JOHN SELLERS and KATIE BROWN may help also -
You and Ron - have you checked the county boards for MS =under
May have 1900 MS census - don't believe posted -
Thanks, marie, iowa
