John SELLARS
& family.  Brother of
James Harvey SELLARS

The search for the parents of James and John SELLARS has been unsuccessful as has information on John's family.  Written on the bottom of the picture in the hand writing of  Annie's daughter Daisy is:  "Mama's Uncle John.  Brother of Grandpa Sellars."   The picture is in an old album with other SELLARS and BRIGHTENSTINE pictures.  There is a "J. R. SELLERS" family in Big Valley, Lake Co., CA in the 1870 census.  For some time I thought this was John and family, but it appears that this was "John Rodman SELLERS," son of Robert & Nancy RODMAN SELLERS.  What is the connection?
