    "Just had a Sellers Reunion & I was given a box of OLD photos.  Many are related to Lula Harraman Jenkins, my husband's grandmother.  She died when Lucille Jenkins Sellers, my husband's mother was only two months old.  My information is mostly from old pictures & what I remember from Emma Martin & Ethel Wommack family pictures & visits."

    Texas Death Index, 1903-2000
    Emma Martin, Death 24 Mar 1995 Titus County

    Some family genealogies reports Emma born in Titus County, but most say Cass County.  Some report some as born in Cass County but Emma alone born in Titus.  I find the family in Cass County in every census from 1900 to 1930, so it would seem reasonable that all the children were born in Cass County.  I think some sources may have been misled by the report of her death in Titus County, to think that this was her home county.
