Here you will find the ansestors and descendants of Jean C. "Jenny" Sellards and Thomas Wiley.

These pages start at Jean's father: Hezekiah Sellards who was the son of Peter Sellards. Hezekiah was born Abt. 1740 in Ulster, Ireland. He married an UNK. Brevart/Brevard B: Abt. 1740 in MD. (Some believe her first name is Jean and she may have been the daughter of John Brevart. This information is unconfirmed.)

Hezekiah & ?Jean Brevard/Brevart? married Abt. 1752 and they had 5 children. The following pages contain the story of Hezekiah and his family.
His youngest child was killed in what is referred to as "The Wiley Massacre" that took place in Oct. 1789.

Also killed in the "Wiley Massacre" was Jenny Sellards & Thomas Wiley's first 5 children.

I Hope you find these pages helpful and informative and as always if you have Questions, Corrections, or Suggestions feel free to contact me.
