Patriot Dedication

Service To Be Held

A dedication service honoring Henry Sells will be held Saturday, June 1 at 3 p.m. at the Sells Cemetery located on Cherokee Lane in the Free Communion Community of Overton County. The NSDAR Chapter Chief John Ross of Hamilton County TN, which is the National Society of Daughters of Revolution, will conduct the service. They will place an emblem at his marker, which will include an honor guard with cannon as well.

All descendants and other are invited to attend. Directions to the cemetery: turn right at Cherokee Lane just past Free Communion Church of Christ on Willow Grove Highway. Henry Sells 1760 to 1856 born in Pennsylvania; died in Overton County, Tennessee a little over 10 years after moving. Census records show he was in PA in 1790 and then an affidavit has him in Sullivan County in 1796 as well as on the 1800 to 1840 census also in Sullivan County Tennessee and in Overton County TN by 1850. He had purchased his land on Jan. 24, 1845 in Overton County from Thomas Eldridge whose land adjoined David Richardson’s and Nicholas Mullins’ land. Hope many descendants and visitors can attend this event.
