Having just begun 'the quest' it began to be apparent
you have been involved in research and information gathering
on and about the Sellers Family, and that it might be a quantum
leap to contact you for some assistance.
Hoping that you do not find this an intrusion, I will 'rough out'
what little I know and follow wherever it leads from that point
My name is Ronald W. Sellers (the W. stands for Willis) and I live
in a suburb of Philadelphia, Pa. called Springfield (Delaware County)
I was born March 10, 1928 - (U.S. Grant Hospital) in Chicago
my Father Willis W. Sellers ( his W stands for William) and his brother
Everett had 'migrated' from Hayesville (Clay County) North Carolina
during the World War 1 period via working in the steel foundries of
Lewistown, Pa. Later Everett moved on to the Los Angeles area and my
Father moved East to Philadelphia.
Adam Sellers (my Grandfather in Hayesville)
was born October 23, 1876
and died in February, 1964. His SSN is 237-58-9364. He is buried at
Oak Forest United Methodist Church in Hayesville.
Dorah Sellers, my Grandmother, was 'Kitchens' before she married,
have found a fair amount of information about her side of the family, but
there are quite a few errors in what there is, so can't rely on that.
About all there is would be this: an I.A. Sellers listed as the Father
and that's about all! (For some reason always thought it was George or
Ephraim Woodfin Kitchens (born Cherokee County
7/7/1854, died 12/16/38)
and Lillie Spivey (altho' someone said this is a mistake, it should be
are the parents of Dorah.
>From there on back there are David Kitchens, Ephriam Kitchens, Mary
Glazner, Virginia Jane Picklesimer, David Picklesimer and Nancy Rodgers.
A final piece of information - the family home and farm are on Downings
in Hayesville. My Uncle Carl Sellers had three of his boys build homes
Jackie, Larry and Stephen. Carl and his first wife Lola Catherine
also buried at Oak Forest, as is my Dad Willis. (Don't quite know why,
but when looking at the cemetary lists the name 'Little Boy' or 'Little Girl'
always tugs at my heart)
And that about wraps up all I know at this time. I appreciate your
and assistance, and will look forward to hearing from you.
Thanks in advance-

PERHAPS, someone could send us an 1860 census on these families,
them. Thanks for sharing, marie, iowa
Back around 2002 I sent you a a couple of letters
and you were kind enough to reply and offer some
information about my Grandfather, Adam Sellers
and his wife Dora,( whose maiden name was Kitchens,)
who resided in Hayesville, Clay County, North Carolina.
My Grandson, Lndsey Sellers has expressed an interest
in 'picking up the banner' and in looking for the correspondence
we shared back then noticed that all of my old e-mail addresses
have changed, so wanted to up-date that information ..my current is:
If you'dike me to forward a copy olf our exchange I'll be happy to
send it along... in hopes that in the intrim there may have been
more information which would have come to light.
