I don't know much about the Self family. I primarily research the descendants of my 10th great grandfather Walter Dixon, Sr. of Pitt Co.,NC.
I don't mean to imply that William "Bill" R. Self is related to your Elizabeth C. Self. I just wanted to pass on more Self genealogy to you.
This is not my line.
I hope it is helpful to you.
Blessings, Suzy Dixon Bennett
