The family to which the writer belongs, came from about Tarboro, N. C. about 1750. They were of
Scotch, Irish and English descent. My great-grandfather, William Sellers, headed the family. He
settled in Columbus or Brunswick County, N. C. on what was called the "Seven Creeks," he had and
raised six or seven sons - Elisha, Joel, Matthew, Henry, Benjamin and Sion - of these, my grandfather,
Benjamin, was born about 1740 grew up and married a Miss Bryant, by whom he had five children - of these
my father, Jordan was the eldest, and the only one raised to be grown. My father was born 16 February 1763
and died 9 September 1838, at the age of seventy-five years in this (Marion) county. My grandfather Benjamin,
married, a second time, don't remember to whom; by this marriage he raised four children. - three sons,
Wright, Luke and Leven and one daughter, Rhoda.
