It’s Family Time~Roland R. Sellers

It's Family Time
Roland R. Sellers, a son of Roland Sellers and  Margaret Eddins was born in 1821 in Chesterfield County, South Carolina.

On 25 December 1844, at the age if 23, Roland married the widow of Thomas Brooks, a young lady by the name of Sarah Pratt Brooks, daughter of Samuel Pratt and Clarinda Ann Teal of Anson County, North Carolina.

Roland and Sarah had two known children:

i. William A. D. Sellers was born about 1849 in Morven, Anson, North Carolina.  William A. D. Sellers apparently died before reaching the age of 10; he was listed in the 1850 census, but not in the 1860 census records.

1850 CENSUS, Morven, Anson County, Page 172B; Rolen SELLERS, age 30, farmer, his wife Sarah SELLERS, age 42 and their son, William A. D. SELLERS, age 8/12.

ii. Sarah Elizabeth Sellers was born about 1851 in Anson County, North Carolina. No further record of Sarah Elizabeth has been found.

When the Civil War broke out in January 1861, Roland left his farm and joined other Anson County boys serving with Company "K", 26th NC Regiment. Unfortunately, Roland did not return from the War. He was wounded in the intestines near Savannah, Georgia, on December 10, 1864. and passed away on 13 December 1864. He is buried in the Laurel Grove Cemetery (North); Savannah, Chatham County, Georgia.
