Looking for the parents of William SELLARDS, my gr grandfather, born 1840s or 1850s, m. Sophia AMYX TOLSON 9/20/1879, in Magoffin County. They had 2 children, Katherine "Kate" SELLARDSm b, abt 1880m and Floyd William SELLARDS, my grandfather, b. 10/01/1881. Sophia was the daughter of James F. AMYX and Mycha LEMASTER. Sophia was m. before to William TOLSON, 5/23/1869, and had 2 daughters, Michie Ann, and Mary J. The story we always heard was Grandfather William Sellards was shot and killed while riding his horse. Sophia later m. A. J. Conley on 3/24/1891. Sophia's name was signed Sophia J. Conley when my grandfather Floyd William went into the Spanish American War in 1898. William SELLARDS is in both the SELLARDS books I have, but he is not connected to anyone. I have searched in Johnson Co. and Magoffin Co. with no luck.
