McMinn Co. records show the following. I haven't checked census records.

1. Sabert Sellers (Sollers) was on the list of personal property for
taxation for Captain Samuel Gragg's company for 1791 and 1792. The record I'm
referring to is by researcher Shirley Seiting, who noted the area she was
looking was larger than the current McMinn. Also included were Monroe, Meigs, and
Polk county areas (this is Greene Co., Tn Tax List, msh)


2. McMinn County tax list of 1836 shows Edmond Sellers and Mertle
Sellers, the latter the owner of 160 acres.

3. Michael H. Sellers of Roane County sold land to John Burnett Oct 20,
1839. McMinn County Deed Book F, pg. 28.

4. Micah H. Sellers sold land to James Gallant of Rhea County, March 14,
1831. Deed Book D, pg. 15.

5. Micah H. Sellers sold land to Abner Casey of Rhea County, April 13,
1832. Deed Book D, pg. 18.

6. Probate of the will of William B. Sellers got underway in 1893.

Best of luck.
