I am researching the SELLERS, DONALDSON, COGBURN, KIMSEY, LOOPER, SHARP, ANDERSON, and SHIFLETTE families from Haywood County, N.C. These are my great grandparent's surnames.

My father's father, Benjamin Franklin SELLERS sr. married Martha Ann Cogburn in 1905. They have 10 children: Chester, Mary, Edith, B.F. jr., John, David, Essie, William, Bonnie, and James. He moved from Georgia to N.C. in the 19th century. BF sr's parenents were James Leonard Sellers and Mary Jane Anderson. Martha's parents were James William Cogburn and Louisa Catherine Sharp.

My mother's father, Jacob Lawrence Donaldson married Lydia Looper (unknown date). They have 8 children: Mary, Florilla, Katherine, James, William, Clarence, Evelyn, and Francis Elizabeth. They resided in South Carolina early in the first half of the 20th century. Jacob's parents were Henry Phare Donaldson and Elizabeth Kimsey. Lydia's parents were James Perry Looper and Evelyn F. Shiflette(or Shifflette).
