Land records, North Carolina and Tennessee; indexes, 1600-1959; by NC Secretary of State, Land Grant Office (Placerville FHC on loan 1/4-5/2012)
Land warrants are documents issued at local land offices to purchasers of public lands. When these warrants are surrendered, the buyers are issued conveyances (deeds). The land warrants (and other miscellaneous records) are organized by file numbers in alphabetical sequences of counties. Some of the counties are now Tennessee counties. These records are in packets. On each packet cover are spaces for the following information: file number, county, purchaser's name(s), number of acres, grant number, date issued, entry number, date entered, book number, page number & location. ... The key to finding the related packets are the file numbers.

1902 "A history of Marion County, South Carolina : from its earliest times to the present, 1901" by William W. Seller (FHL book 975.786 H2sw)
Pg.543-6: SELLERS -- This family, to which the writer belongs, came from about Tarboro, NC, about 1750. They were of Scotch, Irish and English descend. My great-grandfather, William Sellers, headed the family; he settled in Columbus or Brunswick Co. NC 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 16th February 1763 and died 9th Sept. 1838, at the age of 76 years, in this (Marion) Co.
My grandfather, Benjamin, married a second time, don't remember to whom; by this marriage he raised four children -- three sons, Wright, Luke and Levin, and one daughter, Rhoda; my father was half-brother to these. Rhoda married Jonathan Rothwell, on Cape Fear River, Bladen Co. NC. Rothwell was a very successful man, and accumulated a large property. The writer has seen some of the descendants of Rothwell since the war -- they were good people and well educated. Wright Sellers, the oldest son by the second marriage, married a Miss Duncan, of Horry or Columbus Co., and settled and lived on the Iron Springs Swamp, near what is now called "Green Sea," in Horry. My grandfather, Benjamin, had in the meantime moved to that section, owned and had taken up much land in that community, and died there in April 1817 at the age of 77 years. My uncle, Wright Sellers, had and raised one son, Benjamin D., and six or seven daughters. The Sellers and Nortons built the first church at Green Sea, then called "Norton's Church," between the years 1801 and 1807. My grandfather was a Methodist preacher and was ordained by Bishop Asbury in 1801. The Nortons and Sellers kept that church up or were the most prominent members in it until 1826, when they sold out and went to AL. Luke Sellers, the second son of my grandfather by his second marriage, married, don't know who, and had one son, Jacob, and died. Jacob grew up and married and also went West. Levin Sellers, the youngest son of my grandfather, grew up and became a Methodist preacher, joined the Conference in 1806 or 1807, and was sent first to Edisto Circuit (now Orangeburg), and the next year to Cypress Circuit, where he died in August of that year. ... My father, the only child raised of the first marriage of my grand-father, at age 18, joined Continental Army of the Revolution, under the command of Gen. Nathaniel Greene, and was in the battle at Eutaw Springs, SC, 8 Sept. 1781, and served to the end of the war. ... At the age of 26, in 1789, my father married Miss Elizabeth Hunchy, a Dutch lady, by her he had one child, a daughter Mary; the wife was an invalid, bed-ridden from the birth of Mary, for 24 or 25 years, when she died. Mary grew up and married James W. Edwards, and in 1819 moved to Montgomery Co. AL, then a frontier region ... In 1817 my father married again, my mother, Mary Osborne, he being 54 years of age and she 20 years. I was the oldest child, born 27 March 1818, they raised to be grown, three sons -- the writer, James O. and Bryant J., and two daughters, Susan and Civil. ...
