Notes by M. Sims
(Thompson/Thomson name spelled differently from generation to generation.
Mother of Kerenhappuch SELLERS #5 above, may have been Keziah.  1850
Census for Hardeman Co, TN, Household  #1406, a Keziah SELLERS, age 72,
b NC appears in household of William McKee, age 21, his wife age 25
born NC, a son James 3, and a son William, 11 months old. Keziah (Kiziah)
SELLERS found here is believed to  be mother of Kerehappuch who married
Thomas Arrington THOMSON as this name "Keziah" was given to children of
Thomas Arrington.  The Keziah in the 1850 census "may" have been
surnamed  Keziah DOWNING, according to oral tradition.  This Keziah's
husband believed to have died sometime shortly after  arrival in TN in
1833 and a Kiziah SELLERS was listed as head of household in 1840.  1830
census, Duplin Co, NC listed a William SELLERS, possibly husband to Keziah ?).
