SANDY is connected to SELLERS on TWO sides!
Marie... When I put the Hallmark genealogy on the computer...she showed up...the parents of Ernest were Tennessee people and they had 7 children...the parents died in Oklahoma...I don't know if she was OK or TN....just a Sellers that I had in a lineage...I would say early 1900's is a good time for Ernest and Mary's marriage and probably TN. But all this is a guess.
I am working on the 1850 complete census (Sellers) of TN... I can put the county codes in...as soon as I find the paper again... drowning in paper...Sandy

I tried to meet with Margaret, but she wasn't home. I left her a note. Maybe on vacation? The landscapers were there (big property) but no family. I visited the Red Top Primitive Baptist Cemetery, Happy Valley Rd, Tallasee. Saw what must be your relatives buried there. Lots of Sellers. As a matter of fact I took pictures of several of the gravestones for another cousin, Steve Rosen, who's g-g-grandmother's children married into the Sellers family. Also there is currently a man, Ben Whitehead, who lives on Bell Branch Rd, which is off Happy Valley Rd, who married a Sellers. He was born 1917. Lives in the "backwoods." These are the Sellers that a took pictures of. Again, they are from Red Top. There MAY be more, I don't know. There are three cemeteries in that are: Red Top, Boone, and some Missionary Church's cemetery: SELLARS in loving memory W.W "Bill" Mary Garland Mary is dau of Thomas and Nancy Sept 9, 1858 Oct 19, 1867 CORRELL Garland.
