SELLARS, SAMUEL                              1740-1794
EFFINGHAM

     Samuel Sellars, a Revolutionary soldier of Duplin County, N.C., was
born in that state about 1740-45, a son of Samuel Sellars. Duplin County
deed records show the latter acquired 300 acres in Duplin from Richard James
Oct. 5, 1751.

     Samuel Sellars, the subjject, married his cousin, Zilpa Sellars, in
Duplin County, May 11, 1767. They has threen known children, viz:

Aug. 8, 1794

     Samuel Sellars served in the North Carolina militia in the
Revolutionary War, and a few years after the was moved to Effingham County,
Georgia. A deed appears of record in Sampson County, N.C. from Samuel
Sellars "of Georgia" to Nathaniel Merritt, dated Nov. 9, 1790, for three
hundred acres in formerly Duplin, now Sampson County (Deed Book 9, paage
226, Sampson County). The Sellars home-place was cut out of Duplin into
Sampson County when the latter county was formed in 1786.

     Samuel Sellars died in Effingham County, in 1794, age about 50 years.
His will dated August 29, 1794, was probated in that county a few weeks
after it was executed.

     About 1806, the widow and children (who by that time had married) moved
to Tattnall County, where she died. When Appling County was opened to
settlers in 1819, The sons moved across the Aitamaha into the new county and
lived there until they died.

BETTY, thanks.
WE do need more Early info on Samuel Sellers 1740's and where he was after they  married in 1767 in Duplin Co, NC

WHERE are we on tax list or 1790 census?=

NC counties do list SAMUEL SELLERS = we don't know where THIS one went or is in ANY 1770/1790 tax lists?

HIS kids born ca 1770/1790 NC?
DID ANY STAY in NC before he went to GA ca 1794?
they COULD be born about 1768/1774 and stayed in NC?

WERE ANY OF his kids children born in NC?
(were ANY of grandkids born in NC?)
THEY probably went with parents as infants/ OR born in GA

if he was in Rev War here? = Never found a file.
GA listed a SOLEMON SELLERS = never found info

Believe we only have the extractions of his will/probate that lists these three kids.
AND we have NO EARLIER INFO  of his kids born from 1768 to 1780/1790 in NC?=
WHERE born ?

ANYONE have a copy of the ORIGINAL will or probate of SAMUEL SELLERS 1794 EFF CO, GA=
PLEASE SEND, believe we only have extractions.
THANKS,

Looking for Will and burial location of Samuel SELLERS, R.S. who died in
Effingham County, GA on August 29, 1799.  Samuel married his cousin Zilpha
Sellars on May 11, 1767 in Duplin County, NC.  They moved to Effingham
County, GA before 1794 with their three children:  Samuel SELLERS, Jr., John
SELLERS and Penelope SELLERS.  Any help would be appreciated.  bp


BETTY,
Thank you for sharing.
I know,  not All questions can be answered now, but, things to research on and study will help us find these answers.
And Share info we collect - esp to these counties we are in and went to.

I don't believe we  have proven this SAMUEL SELLERS to  a 1790  county/state.
Married 1767 =
He had kids born 1767/1790=23 years old in 1790 when we have proved him in GA.
Yes, I believe some of these kids could have stayed in this NC  area.
Esp the daughters were probably married Before 1790.

And, He may have owned  More land than this 284 acres (that he sold in 1790) that his other kids had is a possibility.
AND we do have SELLERS/MERRITT marriages.
DON'T know if this NATHANIEL MERRITT connects to them? , Who did he marry?
DANIEL MERRITT married SELLERS and had kids = don't have the record out now.
I believe it is posted on SELLERS pages.

NOV, 1790 (1790 census taken when? probably before this and he should be on census? )
SAMUEL SELLERS, JR of GEORGIA still owned and sold  the land in SAMPSON/DUPLIN CO, NC
that had been patented to SAMUEL SELLERS.

WAS this land patented to SAMUEL SELLERS with brother ABRAHAM SELLERS ?

Was this land patented to SAMUEL SELLERS , father of ZILPA SELLERS?
OR was this the land JACOB SELLERS owned = possibly father of this SAMUEL SELLERS JR

MY/OUR deed records only go to 1800/05?
I believe there is a Newer Book. Does Anyone Have the Extractions from it?

PRIDGENS, BOWENS, and others are connected to this area of GA.
PRIDGENS married Two of our SELLERS.
ONE of them Went to this area of GA ca 1830 = ABRAHAM SELLERS and wife ELIZ PRIDGEN
SO, they are still in NC? and with kids born in 1820/30 in NC = 1850 census birth places=

BUT ELIZABETH PRIDGEN, dau of SAMUEL SELLERS IN 1784 may have alREADY gone to GA,
is she the  WIDOW in 1827 GA?
in same area as LUKE PRIDGEN, related to these families that also went to ca 1830-
AGES are Critical here = could be their kids also OR cousins.

Need to connect ages of these families also.
1800-1830 GEORGIA = need county records.

THANKS for sharing and understanding,
marie, iowa

BETTY, thanks.
WE do need more Early info on Samuel Sellers 1740's and where he was
after they  married in 1767 in Duplin Co, NC.
[I don't know when Samuel, Zilpha and the 3 children moved to Effingham
County, GA.   I believe all the children were born in Duplin County, so that
means they would have moved after 1777.]

WHERE are we on tax list or 1790 census?=
[don't know, haven't researched this yet]

NC counties do list SAMUEL SELLERS = we don't know where THIS one went
or is in ANY 1770/1790 tax lists?
[Samuel Sellers, Zilpha's father, was in Duplin County and Sampson County,
NC.  His Will was probated in Sampson County in 1780.  I have a copy of the
original that I found at the NC State Archives in Raleigh earlier this year.
Also, Samuel (R.S.) had a son named Samuel; therefore, it is hard to know
which Samuel Sellers is which in the records.]

HIS kids born ca 1770/1790 NC?
[1770-1777]
DID ANY STAY in NC before he went to GA ca 1794?
[No]
they COULD be born about 1768/1774 and stayed in NC?
[all went to GA]

WERE ANY OF his kids children born in NC?  (were ANY of grandkids born in
NC?)
[I believe all of were born in NC]  [No, children were married in GA and
grandkids born in GA]
THEY probably went with parents as infants/ OR born in GA

if he was in Rev War here? = Never found a file.
[I haven't found the file yet either, but there are DAR members through Sam]
GA listed a SOLEMON SELLERS = never found info

Believe we only have the extractions of his will/probate that lists
these three kids.
[I've never seen his Will or abstract of it]
AND we have NO EARLIER INFO  of his kids born from 1768 to 1780/1790 in
NC?=
WHERE born ?

ANYONE have a copy of the ORIGINAL will or probate of SAMUEL SELLERS
1794 EFF CO, GA=
[Judy Mason has offered to scan Sam's Will and email it to me]

PLEASE SEND, believe we only have extractions.
THANKS,
