Re: FPOC Perkins Randolph, IN
In Response To: Re: FPOC Perkins Randolph, IN ()


This thread has opened my eyes to the possiblility of a Y-DNA connection. My grandfather born ca 1852 in the VA/NC area to a white man/black woman realtionship is perhaps somewhere in the Sellers line mentioned in the article found at

My father's family migrated from the VA/NC area to Greencastle,IN and my father left home at an early age settling in Greenville, OH, Darke Co., OH ca 1910. There were inter-racial Sellers families in this area (Darke, Warren & Paulding counties) during this period. Far-fetched, but nevertheless a possibilty.

My closet Y-DNA matches from the FTDNA databases are:

37 Marker Matches (1)
Genetic Distance - 3
Name E-mail
Craig Lee Sellers

67 Marker Matches (1)
Genetic Distance - 5
Name E-mail
Billy Bob Zellers

I guess it is now time for me to contact these two individuals and search out the possible connections.
