Biography / Administrative History

John J. Sellers (1866-1928) was born in 1866 in Charlottesville, Virginia to John L. Sellers, a shoemaker, and Almira Sellers. In 1893, John L. Sellers moved to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where he worked as the head waiter for the Lutherer Catering Company and had three children, Emmett, John Willis, and Tragene Sellers.
His middle son, John Willis Sellers (1907-1988), relocated to Oakland, California where he met and married Martha Lucille Johnson (1914-1991), the daughter of Mattie Laura Ashby and Howard William Johnson of Los Angeles, California. John Willis Sellers worked in the merchant marine and Martha Lucille worked as a nurse at Providence Hospital for over 30 years. Before separating in 1943, they had one daughter, Shirley Jean Sellers (1938-1994), born on January 4, 1938 in Oakland, California. After the separation, Martha Lucille Johnson met and married George A. Craig with whom she had a step-son, George A. Craig Jr.
