Michael K Selvedge/Selvidge/Selvage was the son of Jeremiah Selvidge and Mary Kelly. He is named in his father's will (Will Dated 31 Dec 1826 - Probated at April Term 1827 in Roane co TN) In the minutes of the Prospect Baptist Church (copies available from the Archives of Roane co) Michael is mentioned as joining the church "by experience" in Jan of 1832. He was given a letter of dismissal in Dec of 1835.
Jeremiah Selvedge married Mary Kelly 18 Oct 1788 in Augusta co VA. On the marriage bond, he signed as Jeremiah SAVAGE. Mary Kelly spelled his name "Salvage" as did the clerk.
Family records indicate that Mary came from Boston, MA where she witnessed the Battle of Bunker Hill. I have not located Jeremiah before the marriage record. Hope this helps. Jane Clancy Debenport
