I will be sure and get info back to you. I also in my research have
in the RIvers line, and BUrr line. Does you Sellers connect with any of
these. My family is all from Chesterfield and it looks like they connect
with most everyone there during the 1800's. Will gladly share info.
This is a rough idea of what is in the article if it is your
line I would
gladly send you a copy of the article by Snail mail...no cost...
In the marriages was a record of D.C. Sellers and Pearl Douglass,
.....Aaron Sellers and Louisa Vick, July 1899.... Hugh and Jerome Douglass
were baptized, also Emma and Cornelia Pitts, Hoyt and Jim Sellers, Oscar
Mr Hardy J. Sellers, the father of Mr Bub Sellers, traded an acre
P.T. Hurst for an acre and gave it for the beginning of Shiloh Cemetery.
Hardy Sellers was the first person to be buried in Shiloh Cemetery Sept.
19,1910. His grave is on the highest point in the cemetery and about the
center of the old Section........
Mr Aaron Sellers was the contractor for the church completed in 1918.....
This is a very good article about the church and it members over
years...Most all of my family is buried at the Shilo Cemetery, grandmother,
aunts and uncles. We go back to Chesterfield every year in August for our
Landon Family Reunion and to help me continue my research. Last summer I
took pictures of all the Burr, Landon headstones to help me get all the
correct. I would really like to see if our Sellers line connects. I have
research book on the Rivers, and it has a lot of Sellers in it also. When
you have time you could send me your line and I will see what I have. TIme
is something I have plenty of lately. I was dx with Multiple Sclerosis,
three years ago I was forced to work. So I have decied to help when ever I
can other people as I continue in my search of my family members.
Hope I can help.

We post our info on State/County pages for their use. Is this article something that could be scanned? (sharp - clear printing?) Or something that could be typed in short segments? I will send you my regular mailing address later. As I want to send this thru our Sellers group so they know your SELLERS connection and see if anyone connected to RIVERS or BURRS.
I just read an article the other day = from memory = we had a BURR
with an Unknown SELLERS father? Any court records on this?
Would you like to give us some names and dates for CHESTERFIELD CO, SC SELLERS?
Thanks for sharing, marie, iowa
I will probably take these minutes and abstracts from SC magazines
on this page to their separate page.
Thanks for sharing , marie, iowa

We have 1840 CENSUS sent by our SELLERS members and only a few/several
looking for One / have a daughter this age.
1840 Chesterfield Census =
(CENSUS Chart =
Females under 5
/5-10 (second mark from /) does that help or confuse?
BUT, also OTHER SELLERS have kids - SHE WAS BORN 1830/35, would be
age in 1840?
THIS would be FROM THE / =separating the males from females = Kinda hard to
half way over in chart
YOU may Already have - BUT, maybe SOMEONE else Can Send us Who they think

then someone corrected it. With Hardy being the name of one son..it makes
me believe that Hardy Seller Sr. could be the father of Margaret Jane Effa
Sellers....does anyone have any thing that would help me establish this
