Martha H. Morris

Ancestors of Margaret Eleanor Catherine Sellers 29 May 1929 to 10 April 2006

Martha H. Morris, daughter of James Morris and Jane Saultor of Spartanburg, SC married Henderson Sellers in SC, son of Emanuel Sellers born Nash NC and Fannie Rogers born Franklin NC . This Photo of Martha Morris when she was over 80 years old living near Homewood, Jefferson Co. AL was found by Harry Kinane, whose ancestor was Laura Frances Sellers, Martha’s daughter. Martha was born near Glenn Springs or Glendale Springs, Spartanburg, SC. In 1856 or 1857 the related families  left Spartanburg in wagons to come to Alabama. It is believed they came thru Tennessee, staying a year in Guntersville in northern AL where Thomas J. Morris and wife Louvina Sellers, d/0 Emanuel are living in the 1860 census. In 1857 they arrived in Shades Valley near Elyton, Jefferson Co. AL, now Birmingham. Jefferson County is bordered by Blount, Bibb, St. Clair, Shelby, Tuscaloosa, and Walker counties. It encompasses 1,119 square miles. The county seat was at Carrollsville from 1819-21, at Elyton from 1821-73, and since 1873 has been at Birmingham. I am not sure if Elyton was not swallowed up by Birmingham. 

Wilson's Raiders  was formed at Elyton Headquarters March 28-31, 1865. by Gen. James H. Wilson, USA, having crossed the Tennessee River with a large force of well equipped cavalry, he grouped them at Elyton, AL. Their mission: to destroy Alabama's economic facilities for supporting the War. From these headquarters he sent; (a) cavalry unit to burn the military school, foundries and bridges at Tuscaloosa. (b) soldiers to destroy mines and furnaces in Jefferson, Bibb, and Shelby Counties. (c) cavalry to dash south to destroy railroads and factories at Selma. (Located at Arlington, in Birmingham). Wilson’s presence at Elyton was Godsend for Henry Emanuel Sellers and his compatriots who had been laying out the war in the wooded hills near there, supported by Unionists of Shelby and Jefferson Co,

If anyone has corrections or additions for me I will be delighted to receive them. I did  this mostly out of census data, as well as burial information at the Homewood Sellers Cemetery in Jefferson Co, Alabama. Credit to Nellie Mae Sellers Newton of Pinson, Jefferson Co. AL,  Jack Sellers of Texas, Harry Kinnane and Michael Farren of  Jefferson Co, Alabama.

 

Confirmation about Henderson’s father was acquired by  Michael Farren from a part of his grandfather Will Franks’s work in the early 1900s is in private hands and not available at Samford University.  Will Franks’s extensive genealogy work about Jefferson county residents was a result of a lifetime devotion. This work was almost thrown in the trash after he died, but in the end, 2 of his descendants took 2 parts of it and the third part of it finally came after persuasion into the genealogy collection at Samford. That means 2 parts of Will Franks’s work are unfortunately in private hands and may meet the same fate which almost met the work now at Samford.

Martha Morris received a Pension after Henderson Sellers died at Chickamauga GA in hospital, but it was revoked in 1915 because they could not find a record of him-probably because he was listed as H. Sellers. In 1850 census he also gives only H. Sellers-he must not have liked his name. In the following paper Stephen Horton Watkins gives testimony for her as a confederate soldier. This says Henderson enlisted at -----boro? Dalton GA  While Dalton was pro-Union prior to the outbreak of The Civil War, after Georgia votes to secede in January 1861 only a few Unionists could be found. One suspected northern sympathizer was Ansley Blunt, postmaster and first mayor of the city whose home, the Blunt House, stands south of the downtown area.  Many of the men who would fight at Chickamauga (September 1863) arrived at Dalton by train, passing through the depot. including Henderson Sellers.  From 1862 until 1864 Dalton serves as a front-line hospital town.

Andrew Jackson had warned the South that to fight the Union would be the most foolish thing they could do and that they would lose the fight-and he was right. Emanuel agreed with Jackson and he voted for Douglas as president in the 1860 election and the Union candidates in Shelby Co. (but I could not read the names very well). Henderson Sellers’ father was against succession and stated this in a claim he made for bacon at 20 cents a pound provided to the Union Army under the command of General Wilson on about 1st April 1963 at 11 in the morning at his farm. Emanuel states he lived in Shelby County near the county line which is 7 miles south of his PO at Elyton in Jefferson Co. AL. He lived one and half miles from “the main public road leading to Selma.” He proved his loyalty by it by feeding runaway soldiers in the woods. He calls the War “the Rebellion.”  To question 17) Who were the leading Unionists of your vicinity during the War? His answer was: “ John A. McLintock (McClintock, John A., b. 25 Aug 1826, d. 28 May 1906 buried Bluff Park Cemetery, Oxmoor Heights), Robert B. Patton, Pickney Brock (b 1822 SC wife is Parvelle Redding, Death: 18 Apr 1894 - Haleys PO, Marion, AL Marriage: 21 Dec 1848 - Elyton, Jefferson, AL), and Joseph Gice of Shelby Co., John C. Morris, Thomas Sanford (birth 1816 Henderson Co TN died 1879 Jefferson Co. married Margaret B. Burford,  Permelia P. and Jane DeJarnette Jones) , Thomas Haughey ( a doctor b 1824 Scotland who had married Elizabeth b. 1829 SC and they had a son John b 1845) and Sam Thompson (m. Ann Eliza/Louisa Camp in Jefferson) of Jefferson Co.”

SELLERS:

In an old Bible record there is said to have been 10 brothers total in that generation In "The Sellers Letters" in June, 1984 by Charles A. Sellers, grandson of Jordan Sellers, he lists some of the siblings as Mary, Martha, Samuel, Gurley, Bennett and Jordan.  

 

1. William S. Sellers married Mary Sherrod in Nash Co NC

2. Samuel Sellers married Sarah Rogers in Person Co. NC (was formed from Edgecomb Co.  Granville Co is between it and Franklin Co. -maybe they married at her grandmother’s house.

3. Bennett “Long” Sellers married Winny Rogers 7 March 1821 Franklin Co NC

4. Manuel  “Short” Sellers (Emanuel) married Fanny Rogers 1 June, 1825 in Franklin NC. Witness John Rogers and JJ Cothran

5. Gurley Sellers married Delilah Wyatt 31 January 1826 in Nash Co.-witneses Jourdan Sellers and Larry Brantley

6. Jourdan Sellars married Elizabeth Mason 5 Nov. 1828 in Nash, NC moved to Wake Co NC then Guilford NC and finally Greenup, Cumberland Co, Illinois and then Indiana.

11. Lucinda Sellers (Emanuel`s sister) married Fanny’s brother John Rogers.

12. Tallula Sellers (Emanuel`s sister) married Larry Brantley-son of Sherrod Brantley and stayed in NC. (Larry Brantley Residence: 1830 - Ferrills, Nash, North Carolina)  

13. Mary Sellers

14. Martha Sellers

 

By 1840 Bennett and Manuel had moved to Spartanburg SC.  In 1850  they appear under their nicknames Short b 1800 and Long Sellers b 1787. After 1856 Emanuel and son Henderson Sellers left SC and went thru Tenn. to Guntersville AL by 1857 with the help of their uncle Gurley Sellers who came up to Tenn to meet them and then to Shades Valley and Elyton in Jefferson County, presumably after they acquired land. They had one of the first 6 houses in the  Shades Valley.

Emanuel’s son Henderson appears as H. Sellers with Henry (could be a nickname for Martha who had a middle initial H.) in 1850 Spartanburg SC  and Margaret age 1 could be his first child by Martha. Henderson’s younger brother Emanuel Henry fought with his brother Henderson in the D 28th  Confederate Alabama Infantry.   William and Alison were in the D group too, as well as his uncle Thomas Morris.

Dr. Harry Kinane says: “Rosa Mae Tyler was the daughter of William Andrew Jackson Tyler and Susan Lee Ann Kimbrel. They lived in a dog trot cabin at Genery Gap on the north side of Bluff Ridge in Jefferson Co. near the Bibb Co. line. Rosa Mae Tyler, a grandmother of mine was one of 21 children of this Tyler family, 18 of whom lived to adulthood. For reasons unknown to me, "Mama Rosa" as a young teenager went to live in the home of Rev. Dan Acton Bailey and his wife Laura Frances Sellers in their house right beside the Sellers/Bailey cemetery in present day Homewood, near Oxmoor Rd./ Green Springs Hwy. She later married William Henderson Bailey, son of Rev. Dan Acton Bailey and Laura Frances Sellers. Benny Bailey & William Henderson Bailey were twins. Benny had a seizure disorder, i.e. had Epilepsy and died at an early age. (My mother thinks he was about 13 at death). Dan Acton Bailey & Laura Frances Sellers Bailey are buried side by side in two graves, covered in semi-cylindrical shaped concrete-over-brick tombs. They are not marked otherwise. A smaller in length similar grave I suspect is that of Benny Bailey their son. The cemetery is greatly deteriorated (what a shame for some of the pioneer families of Homewood). A fence around it is deteriorating and on one boundary, Paw Paw's restaurant has put their smelly garbage dump, and the fence by it is broken down, just as one enters to walk on Rev. Dan Acton Bailey and his wife's grave. A wooden fence has been erected, by the Howard Johnsons Motel on the adjacent boundary, to protect Motel occupants from realizing they are sleeping by a cemetery. In olden times their parking lot driveway was a road into the community and an access to the cemetery, which now really has no access. the next adjoining boundary has the fence eroding off a small embankment, which at one time was dug out for a shopping center which burned down years ago and was not rebuilt. There is an open field on the fourth cemetery boundary, beyond which is another restaurant, this one facing the Green Springs Hwy.”

5.         Thomas J. MORRIS b. about 1835 SC married about 1854 Louvena/Levina Sellers born Spartanburg SC abt 1835, daughter of Emanuel Sellers b. 1795 Nash Co. NC and Frances “Fannie” Rogers b. Nash/Franklin Co NC. She was Henderson Sellers sister. This Thomas may be nephew or son of James Morris or a cousin and the other Thomas in the family may be a brother to James. Or they could be 2 boys in the family of the same name.

DOG-RUN HOUSES. The dog-run, dog-trot, or double log cabin was a common type of house in the middle of the nineteenth century. The building consisted of two cabins separated by a ten or fifteen foot passageway, with a continuous gabled roof covering both cabins and the passageway between them, or dog-run. Often a porch was built to extend across the entire front of the house, and lean-to shed rooms were constructed at the rear of each cabin for additional space. The walls were made of horizontally laid hand-hewn logs, with the openings between the logs chinked with sticks and clay. Later examples were often frame rather than logs. The floors were of either dirt, sawed boards, or split logs with the flat side up. There few windows in frontier cabins, and glass windows were rarely seen in pioneer times. Each cabin had a door opening onto the dog-run. Doors and shutters were hung on rawhide or wooden hinges. The roofs were made of overlapping oak clapboards held in place by weight poles. The chimney was constructed of sticks and a clay mixture, and the hearth was made of smooth rocks. Later dog-run houses often had fine brick chimneys and shingled roofs. The purpose of the dog-run was to cool the house by providing shade and catching the breeze. The space served as a catch-all for farm and household articles and was the favorite sleeping place of the dogs. The structure was used on the frontier from Alabama to Ontario. Some are

two story (left) John Looney’s cabin in ST. Claire Co. circa 1820 and some are one and a half story (right) Patterson Log Cabin in Tallassee c. 1845.

Henderson Sellers died  near Chickamauga GA in the Civil War- D 28 Alabama Infantry. Private Confederate

Flag: 28th Alabama Infantry

Catalogue No. 86.3945.1

(PN10110-10111)

Information supplied by E. D. Wilson, Houston, TX -The flag was captured at Orchard Knob on November 23, 1863.

This was the opening engagement of the Battle of Chattanooga, November 23-25, 1863. The flag was captured by

Corporal G. H. Kramer, Co. I, 41st Ohio Infantry. Corporal Kramer "ordered and received the surrender of 20 men

with the colors." Instead of forwarding the flag to the U.S. War Department in Washington, Brigadier General William

B. Hazen, commanding the Second Brigade, Third Division, 4th Army Corps, apparently retained it as his personal

property.

Following the war, the flag remained in General Hazen's possession. In 1903, his son John McClean Hazen placed

the flag on loan to the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. Learning of its existence, Dr. Thomas Owen,

Director, Alabama Department of Archives and History requested the return of the flag on August 20, 1905.

The 28th Alabama Infantry Regiment was organized March 29, 1862 at Shelby Springs (located about half way

between Calera and Columbiana) to serve for three years or the duration of the war. The recruits were to report to

Shelby Springs, the site of a large Confederate military training camp known as Camp Winn, on 13 March; they

remained there until 18 April 1862. The Regiment consisted of companies from Blount, Dallas, Jefferson,

Marshall, Perry, and Walker counties.

 

After marching, taking trains and fighting all over the South the 28th was notified they were needed in GA. Union

Gen'l William S. Rosecrans, commanding the Army of the Cumberland, began a series of rapid flanking movements

which dislodged Bragg's Confederates. The 28th left Shelbyville on the 27th of June 1863 and reached Tullahoma

on the 28th where they stayed until 1 July. Then they moved on to Chattanooga, a vital rail and river port city, arriving

 the 7th and camping a mile below town until 20 August. Rosecrans' movements forced the evacuation of Chattanooga.

 Bragg moved his forces south to Lafayette, Georgia, and began calculating a counter move against Rosecrans.

 The 28th Alabama moved across Lookout Mountain (31 August) to the Lower Chickamauga Creek, about 19 miles

distant. Then on 1 September, they moved to Mc Fairlands' Springs, about 10 miles. On the 8th, they marched

to Chickamauga Creek, 19 miles, and on the 10th, marched 9 miles to McLemore's Cove. Bragg saw his opportunity

open at Crawfish Springs, GA, along the banks of Chickamauga Creek. He realized that Rosecrans had split his

Union forces into three groups. Bragg attacked, hoping he could pick these groups off piecemeal, but Rosecrans

recognized the threat and was able to reunite his Army before the full effect of the attack could be made.  

Bragg wasted no time in beginning the fight and the two armies battered each other to no avail on September 19,

1863. The Union and Confederate soldiers had fought to a standstill, but on the morning of the 20th, a gap was

found in the Union line near the Brotherton house, and thousands of Confederates, including the 28th Alabama,

poured through. Rosecran's Army of the Cumberland was put in rout. A solid counterattack by Gen'l John Thomas

 Wilder's "Lightning Brigade," armed with Spencer repeating rifles, slammed into the flank of Manigault's Brigade

and the 28th Alabama. The Confederates were stunned from the awesome firepower of Wilder's Brigade and were

forced to retreat almost a mile.

After the Confederate victory at Chickamauga, Rosecrans retreated to Chattanooga. The Army of Tennessee followed,

and Bragg ordered the city to be placed under siege. He positioned his Confederates around the city, effectively

boxing in the Union forces.

 

Henderson s 2 brothers survived the Battles near Chickamauga Creek. Alison Sellers and Emanuel Henry Sellers-

Company D was with William H. Nabors  as well.  

Witness account of one of the battles: (Confederate account; the following article is taken from the Confederate

Veteran, vol. XXVII (1919), p.311:) Partial account extracted-

The following account of the return of the flag of the 28th Alabama Regiment comes from John T. Edmond, of Campbell,

Tex., who served with Company D, of that regiment, as taken from the newspaper report from Montgomery September

9, 1905: "The flag of the 28th Regiment, C.S.A., has come back from the National Museum by grace of Mrs. George Dewey,

 wife of Admiral Dewey, and the widow of the late Gen. W. B. Hazen, U.S.A. It was captured November 23, 1863, at Bald

Knob, near Chattanooga, after a fight that depleted the command and give it the same glory that fell to the famous Light

Brigade. Union and Confederate alike tell of the glorious fight it made when under the impression that it had been ordered to

hold the position taken at all hazards. Some of the best men of Alabama were on its rolls, and many of them never came back

to tell of its glories.

"The regiment was organized at Shelby Springs March 29, 1862, 'for three years, or the war.' It went out under Col. J. W.

Frazer, who soon resigned the command to Col. John C. Reid, who led it in all its death-dealing and death-receiving raids

upon the enemy

“….Col. John C. Reid, commanding the 28th Alabama Regiment, always said that he had received orders to hold his

position 'at all hazards,' as the brigade would move out and the girth be made on that line. This was a misunderstanding,

most unfortunately. How it came about I have never been able to ascertain. But Colonel Reid certainly believed that the

28th Alabama Regiment was ordered 'to hold the position at all hazards,' and it did so with the most distinguished gallantry.

The position was attacked by overpowering numbers, but our men firmly held the position. There happened what rarely

came under my knowledge: the Confederates and Yankees actually fought at the bayonet point across the breastworks.

The regiment held its position until the troops on either flank had been driven off and until it was almost completely surrounded.

It was then withdrawn, very properly, only after a most heroic resistance and it became evident to Colonel Reid that the brigade

was not coming up to make the fight on that line.

"I have never know men to act with more distinguished bravery. I have not the figures before me, but my recollection is that they

did not withdraw until over half of their number had been killed, wounded, or captured.

"The attack on Orchard Knob, it will be remembered, was the opening of the battles around Chattanooga.

"It gives me great pleasure to bear witness to the gallantry of my comrades of the 28th Alabama Regiment. I trust that you

will place this testimony with the returned battle flag, so that all succeeding generations may know of the grand heroism

displayed by the regiment whose ensign it was, not only on that occasion, but on every battle field from Murfreesboro, 1862,

until Nashville, 1864."
