Sunday’s Obituary - Elizabeth [Smith] Sellers

Elizabeth [Smith] Sellers
b. 24 June 1949
d. 12 February 1922
bu. Shiloh United Methodist Church Cemetery

The whole community has been saddened by the death of Mrs. Elizabeth Sellers on February 12, 1922. She was born on the 24th day of June, 1849; married to Hardy J. Sellers March 16, 1871. By this union were two children, a boy and a girl; the little girl having died at eight years of age. Mr. Sellers died September 19, 1910. Mrs. Sellers joined Bethel church in Marlboro county at a very young age, later moving her membership to Mt. Oliver Church in this county and afterwards Shiloh. Entering into God's fold at an early age, she remained a faithful worker until she was called to receive her just reward. She was a type of ideal American womanhood, being a faithful wife, mother and Christian. She will be greatly missed by not only the family and intimate friends, but by everyone who knew her. Truly, "to know her was to love her." Surviving Mrs. Sellers are one son, a daughter-in-law and five grandchildren.1 2

Elizabeth's husband Hardy J. Sellers was my 1st cousin 4 time removed.
