I'm looking for records for the estate settlement of Adam Sellers in Warren
County, Ohio, circa 1835.
Adam Sellers was born in 1747, presumably in Lancaster County, PA, the son
of Heinrich and Anna Maria Zeller.
The family migrated to present-day Rockingham County, VA, in the
McGaheysville, VA area, circa 1750.
In the early 1800's, Adam sold off his Virginia land holdings, and moved to
Warren County, Ohio with wife Barbara (Teeter) where he bought approximately
600 acres.  He died in Warren County, Ohio, in 1821 and is buried in the
Salem Cemetery on East Springboro Road.

As family history has it, Adam died intestate (without a will) and the final
settlement of the estate took nearly 15 years to complete.  I have not been
able to find any information concerning his death nor his eventual estate
settlement.
Adam was supposedly born in 1742, however, when buried in 1821, his age was
given as '74', meaning a 1747 birth year.

If anyone has any info or copies of these records, or knows how I can find
them,  please let me know.

Thanks!

Michael Sellers
5th Great Grandson of Adam Sellers



MICHAEL, thanks. I don't see where anyone has ever sent to us.
The Ohio Index to Wills and Estates =
ADAM SELLER, E-1821, prl p254; BX22#1 Warren Co., Oh
YOU MAY Need to ask for ALL estate papers.
usgen web, warren co, might have info on line or a lookup or order address.

FRANK M. SELLERS = (descendants of Heinrich Sellers) did cover this ADAM
SELLERS 1742/1821 and he only lists 6 kids = HENRY, CHRISTIAN, PETER, MARY,
ELIZABETH, ADAM.
They may be the kids proven in above papers, assuming he read them. The
estate papers  are Not listed in his history nor are they listed in the
ZELLER history.
Thanks for sharing, marie, iowa

Frank Sellers is correct in that Adam and Barbara (Teeter) Sellers had only
the 6 children:
        1) Christian; married Mary Amelia Elizabeth Schneider.  Born 1768 in
Rockingham County, VA, migrated to Parke County, Indiana, and died October
13, 1841.  Both are buried in the Old Moriah Cemetery, Greene Township,
Parke County, Indiana.
        2) Heinrich II (Henry, Jr); married Mary Margaret "Molly" Hedrick.
Heinrich is the next step in my ancestry.  Born in Rockingham County, VA,
circa 1769, died in Rockingham County, VA, September 3, 1841.  Burial place
unknown.
        3) Peter; married (unknown)  Born 1771 in Rockingham County, VA.
Date died, unknown.  Burial place unknown.
        4) Mary Christina;  married Charles Null.  Born 1773 in Rockingham
County, VA, died June 12, 1824 in Warren County, Ohio.  Mary Christina, her
husband, Charles Null, and her father, Adam Sellers, are buried in the Salem
Cemetery on East Springboro Rd, Warren County, Ohio.  Mary Christina has
often been mistaken as having Peter Harshman II as her 2nd husband.  This is
NOT the case.
        5) Elizabeth; married #1, Jacob Cash; married #2, Matthias Schneider
(Snyder).  Matthias is presumed to be the brother of Mary Amelia Elizabeth
Schneider that married Elizabeth's brother, Christian.  Elizabeth was born
March 15, 1776, died April 27, 1862.  Buried in Brown Memorial United Church
of Christ Cemetery, McGaheysville, VA.
        6) Adam, Jr.; born 1778 in Rockingham County, VA.  Date died,
unknown.  Burial place also unknown.

I have seen mention of an 1828 will of Barbara Sellers in Preble County,
Ohio.  In all likelihood, this is the Will of Barbara (Teeter) Sellers, wife
of Adam Sellers who preceeded her 7 years earlier in 1821.  It has been
mentioned that this Barbara Sellers is the wife of Adam Sellers.  However,
the Adam Sellers most have attributed this as being was Adam, son of
Christian.  This is incorrect.  I believe the "Barbara Sellers" of the 1828
Will was Barbara (Teeter) Sellers, wife of Adam Sellers (1747-1821).
Marie, has anyone pulled THAT 1828 Will of Barbara Sellers?  Perhaps it
would throw some light on the remaining estate, if any, of her husband Adam
Sellers (my 5th Great Grandfather).

Thanks!
Michael



MICHAEL, thanks.
There is NO Barbara SELLERS listed in the OHIO estate/will book.
There is a BARBARA ZELLERS listed in 1828 PREBLE CO . thought I had a copy
of this, can't find. misfiled?
>From Memory she connected to a ZELLERS in Preble co.

I could NOT read the 1820 Warren Co., OH census on Adam = does ANYONE have?
only male is 26/45 and female =0000?

marie, iowa



My apologies.  I meant to say that I have seen mention of an 1828 will of
Barbara Sellers in Preble County, Ohio.  I still believe this Barbara
Sellers was quite possibly Adam Sellers wife, Barbara (Teeter) Sellers.
Would be greatly interested in seeing a copy of the Will if it can be found
...

Thanks!
Michael

We  have some of the Zeller estates/will in Preble and Mont Co., Oh and don't believe I found a Barbara as a widow.
Should try and get more of these abstracted.
See anything, advise. Thanks for helping. marie, iowa

Thanks so much for the information on the estate paper, Case #355, of
Barbara Zeller.

Based on the info you sent, there is little doubt in my mind this is indeed
the Barbara (Teeter) Zellers, widow of my 5th Great Grandfather, Adam
Sellers.
I'm even more sure based partly on a few individuals listed for the Case as
Administrator and as buyers of some of the property.
Examples;
Peter Harshman, Administrator:  Peter Harshman (II) was Barbara (Teeter)
Zellers son-in-law.  He married her daughter, Mary Christina Zeller, in
Rockingham County, VA. They relocated to Preble County, Ohio, where he had
land granted to him in Washington Township, Section 9, on September 27,
1811.  Mary Christina died of Typhoid Fever in Preble County, Ohio, in 1827.
He eventually held more than 800 acres in Washington Township ... the same
Township where this estate sale was held.

Elijah Harshman:  Died in Preble County, Ohio, in 1839.  Was a brother of
the Peter Harshman (II) mentioned above.

David Fudge:  Was Barbara (Teeter) Zellers nephew.  He was the son of
Barbara's sister, Mary Magdalene Teeter and her husband, Conrad Fudge.

Adam Fudge:  Cousin to David Fudge.

Margaret Harshman:  Sister-in-law of Peter Harshman (II).

The family connections of these people to Barbara (Teeter) Sellers, widow of
Adam Sellers, is too strong and too much of a coincidence for this to have
not been her.
Its a shame there isn't a Will out there of her's as well.

Michael
