William David and Sarah Crawford SELLERS

Does anyone have information on this family?  I have just discovered that
their son, Nathan Douglas SELLERS, was actually born in Bourbon Cty, KY.
The family moved to Preble Cty, OH where Nathan married Susanna HAWK and
later moved to Wabash Cty, IN, where both Nathan and Susanna died in the
1870s. We are looking for other information on this family, including more
information on Nathan and Susanna's parents.

William David m. Sarah Crawford. Son Nathan Douglas born in Bourbon Co. KY
1797. Nathan married Susanna Hawk in 1818 in Preble Co. OH. By late 1830s
they had settled in Wabash Co. IN north of Lagro, near Liberty Mills. There
is a story about the family in the 1976 Wabash Co. History. Nathan and
Susanna are buried at the Pleasant-Union Cemetery across the road from
their farm, by an abandoned church they apparently attended.

Our Margaret Lucinda, born to Nathan and Susanna in 1833 in Preble Co. OH
was not one of the older children of this family. It was a large family and
I have a pedigree sheet with many children. Margaret Lucinda married John
Franklin Kinney in 1853 in North Manchester, Wabash Co. IN. He was a boot
and harness maker. In 1860 the family was living at Clarinda, Page Co. IA,
but their last child, a daughter was born in 1861 back in North Manchester,
Co. IN. Sons were born to them in 1854, 1857 and 1859 in North Manchester.
My great grandfather, James Franklin Kinney is their eldest child. Before
1880 John and M. Lucinda.had again moved to IA, settling in Creston,Union Co. By then their eldest 2 boys were married and moved along with them
settling in Page Co. at Essex, IA. My grandfather, Charles Winton Kinney
was born there.

In the mid 1880s the two eldest boys, James and Clarence moved to Alturas
Co. ID with their families to prospect for gold and raise cattle. The area
is now in Custer Co. When ranching went a foul because of deep snow, they
moved into Blackfoot and James began shoe repair again. He died in Sept
1911, Clarence in May 1912, and sister, Eva May Kinney Myers in 1913, all
from diabetes and complications of it. My grandfather had to take over his
father James' shoe repair business and was in Blackfoot, ID until 1926 when
their family moved to Salem, Marion Co. OR.

With all of the family older than me and my siblings, we decided we needed
to gather the cousins together. That is why the reunion. djb

DOROTHY - Thanks, look forward to receiving. It was Not unusual, after
having a child die, to rename another child with same name. Usually you have found a
grave, or someone told you. Otherwise, you try and account for each child
on the census and list by age on the names you do know . Most of his census are on
our Preble Co, Oh page =
and the 1850 census is at our Wabash Co, In page=
if you need a census schedule=
Best wishes, marie, iowa
