52 Ancestors: #39, Mary Ann Sellers Ryan

 
clip_image001

Amy Johnson Crow of No Story To Small has started a challenge of 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks.
From her blog “The challenge: have one blog post each week devoted to a specific ancestor. It could be a story, a biography, a photograph, an outline of a research problem — anything that focuses on one ancestor. Not only should this get me blogging more, but also to take a deeper look at some of the people in my family tree.”

The focus of my blog post today is Mary Ann Sellers Ryan.

Before this past week very little research had taken place on Mary Sellers. What was known about Mary was documents in a book entitled “Some Descendants of Hardy Sellers of Chesterfield County, SC” on page 8.
