Roger,
Regarding Sellers from Cumberland County, I have the charts for a Henry
Sellers (German??)  who lived in Cumberland County, PA (about 1800) and
eventually settled in Lawrence County, IN. I think Henry had a son
Moses. I'll have to dig up the information and get back to you. The
charts were sent to me several years back from a lady named Virginia
Miller who lives in Terre Haute, IN. This other Sellers line is not
related to mine but I kept the information because of the Cumberland
Co./Lawrence Co. connection which are the same counties as my
Sellers/Sellars clan.
James.

Hi Marie,  Your posting of the Robert Sellers information caused me to dig
into my Sellers "stuff" and I have come up with some information that should
be added to your Sellers collection:

August, 1849, Christian Record, Vol. VII, No. III, Bloomington (Indiana), copy
obtained from Disciples of Christ Historical Society in Nashville, Tennessee

Lawrence County, Indiana, July 6, 1849
Brother Mathes: After so long a time, I set down to inform you of the death of
our little daughter, Mary Catharine Sellars.  She took her flight to the
spirit land on the 12th of May last.  She was nine years one month and twleve
days old. Her illness only lasted about eight days.  She had her right mind to
the last moment.  About two hours before her death, I asked her if she thought
she was going to die and leave us.  She said she did not know.  I then asked
her if she would rather stay with her pappa; she answered "I reckon."  She
then said to me: pappa, I wish you and Mother would stay with me all the time,
as though she had just got a glimpse of another world, and soon after her
spirit fled.

O brother Mathes! How hard it seems for us to part with out dear children!
This is the seventh and last of our children, who have gone to the promised
land, except three who are of age and doing for themselves.  We are now alone,
but we hope to see them again in the land of everlasting rest.
Yours in the good hope.
Edward Sellars

J. M. SELLERS, the next youngest in a family of ten children, born to Edward
and Amelia (Stanton) Sellers, is a native of Laurel County, Ky.;  his birth
occurring February 2, 1826.  When only four years of age he was brought by
his parents to Lawrence County, Ind., and he was reared and educated in
Indian Creek Township, and has always made it his home. To his marriage with
Miss Julina Sears, which occurred in 1845, a family was born, the following
five children yet living:  John D., Minerva, Adam, Rachel and Ila.  The
mother dying in 1880, Mr. Sellers married for his second wife Mrs.(Cox)
Embree, a widow lady, with this family:  William, Elizabeth, Mary and John.
Mr. Sellers is one of the well-to-do and well posted farmers of the county,
owning upward of a section of good land.  As a Republican in politics he has
always been outspoken in his party's best interest, which in 1884 honored
him as its candidate for County Commissioner.  For forty years he has been a
member of the Christian Church, and his wife for thirty-eight years.

PROF. E. F. SUTHERLAND, general merchant, is a native of Monroe County,
Ind.;  born near the village of Harrodsburg, December 28, 1852, is the
eldest son living of F. B. and Elizabeth Sutherland, whose maiden name was
Sellers.  The subject of this biography is of English, Irish and Scotch
extraction.  The father of Mr. Sutherland was born in Ashe County, N. C.,
March 7, 1821, and his mother in Laurel County, Ky., September 24, 1823.
His paternal grandfather was Joseph Sutherland, a native of Grayson County,
Va.;  born 1790.  His great-grandfather was Alexander Sutherland, of
Scottish nativity, and who came to America  prior to the Revolutionary war,
in which he was a soldier, and was at the battle of Bunker Hill.  The
great-great-grandfather of the subject of this sketch was Grand Duke of
Scotland.  In the pioneer days of Indiana the Sutherland family came to
Monroe County, and there remained until our subject was about twelve years
of age, when he removed to Perry Township, Lawrence County, and the major
part of Mr. Sutherland's life has here been spent.  His early life was
devoted to the service of his father and in attendance at the country
school.  Mr. Sutherland had so far advanced with his studies by the fall and
winter of 1872-73, that he was capable of teaching school, and during this
time he taught his first term.  During the summer of 1873 he attended the
Bedford Male and Female College, and in the spring of 1874 he entered the
Northern Indiana Normal School, at Valparaiso.  In 1879 he graduated from
that institution.  Immediately after his graduation he accepted a position
in the Southern Indiana Normal School, at Paoli, and in 1880 he became
Superintendent of this school and as such, remained for three years and then
resigned his position to engage in the mercantile business in * Springfield,
Ind., in which he still continues.  During the winter of 1883-84, however,
he superintended the public schools at Orleans, Orange County, Ind.  The
mercantile business has been a success.  He has invested about $3,000 and
adopted the cash system. The marriage of Mr. Sutherland took place August
19, 1877, to Miss Emma Pearson, a native of Lawrence County, Ind., daughter
of William L. and Amanda J. Pearson.  To this union have been born:  Lola M.
and Eugene F.  Mr. Sutherland is a stanch Republican, and cast his first
Presidential ballot for U. S. Grant.  He is a member of the I. O. O. F.  Mr.
and Mrs. Sutherland are members of the Methodist Episcopal Church.

*NOTE:  Instead of Springfield, Ind. it is probably supposed to be
Springville, Ind.  = (Clarke, LaPorte, Lawrence Co, Ind,msh)

   Hi Marie,  Your posting of the Robert Sellers information caused me to dig
into my Sellers "stuff" and I have come up with some information that should
be added to your Sellers collection:

August, 1849, Christian Record, Vol. VII, No. III, Bloomington (Indiana), copy
obtained from Disciples of Christ Historical Society in Nashville, Tennessee

Lawrence County, Indiana, July 6, 1849
Brother Mathes: After so long a time, I set down to inform you of the death of
our little daughter, Mary Catharine Sellars.  She took her flight to the
spirit land on the 12th of May last.  She was nine years one month and twleve
days old. Her illness only lasted about eight days.  She had her right mind to
the last moment.  About two hours before her death, I asked her if she thought
she was going to die and leave us.  She said she did not know.  I then asked
her if she would rather stay with her pappa; she answered "I reckon."  She
then said to me: pappa, I wish you and Mother would stay with me all the time,
as though she had just got a glimpse of another world, and soon after her
spirit fled.

O brother Mathes! How hard it seems for us to part with out dear children!
This is the seventh and last of our children, who have gone to the promised
land, except three who are of age and doing for themselves.  We are now alone,
but we hope to see them again in the land of everlasting rest.
Yours in the good hope.
Edward Sellars

Edward Sellers
Franklin, Ind., Nov 27, 1872.

   Another of the Faithful Gone to His Reward.---Bro. Edward Sellers was
born the 18th day of March, A.D., 1802, in Knox Co., Kentucky.  He
joined the Methodist Episcopal Church in Laurel county, Ky., on the 11th
day of January, 1823, in which Church he became a class leader and an
exhorter.  On the 20th day of March following, he was married to Miss
Amelia Martin, with whom he lived until her death; which occurred on the
5th day of Jan. 1872.  After living in the M.E. Church some four years,
Bro. Sellers became better enlightened on the subject of baptism, and
consequently dissatisfied with his sprinkling, (his Methodist brethren
would not immerse him), the result of which was, he left th M.E. Church
and united with the regular Baptists; with whom he lived in harmony some
four years longer.  In the year 1828, he moved to Lawrence county, Ind.,
where he lived about two years before he again attached himself to any
church.  During this interval he heard for the first time, the ancient
apostolic gospel preached by Elder Abraham Kern, Joseph Hostetler, Isaac
Martin and numerous others of the great reformation of the 19th century,
to which his truth-loving mind, readily triumphing over party
prejudices, yielded a hearty and soul-cheering assent.  He became a
member of the Church of Christ in the summer of 1830.  To the membership
of this church, to-wit, White River Union, Bro. Sellers was a welcome
accession.  Shortly after his connection with this congregation he was
ordained a preacher or evangelist.  In this Church Bro. Sellers lived
for a period of thirty-five years in perfect peace and fellowship with
the brotherhood, zealously laboring as far as his health would admit,
earnestly contending for the faith once delivered to the saints.  In
June, 1863, Bro. Sellers again moved to Effingham county, in the State
of Illinois.  On the 10th day of Sept., 1867, Bro. Sellers moved to
Mason, a town on the I. & C. R.R. in the same county.  In the year 1868,
a small congregation of disciples was organized in Mason, at which time
brother and sister Sellers were among the first to become members.  In
this town they lived much beloved by the church, and highly esteemed as
citizens to the close of their earthly labors.  They both suffered great
afflictions in their latter years; he with cancer in the face, and she
with chronic rheumatism.  Their deep and painful sufferings were borne
by both with Christian patience and resignation.  In her death she
preceded her husband six months and eighteen days.  He died on the 23rd
day of July, 1872; aged 7o years, 4 months and 5 days.

Afflictions o'er their life prevailed,
Wave after wave in floods were driven;
Faith manned their bark, they safely sailed,
The last wave rolled them on to heaven.  J.D. Bush.

The Bedford Daily Times Mail Bedford, Indiana January, 1892

In Memorium
Amanda  Moore

        Amanda Moore was born near London, Laurel County Kentucky,
January 22nd, 1810, and died at the home of her son, Dr J.L. Moore,
Washington, Indiana, Tuesday August 9th, 1892, aged 82 years, 6 m., 17
days.
        Her maiden name was Sellers.  In comparatively early life, she
was married to Uriah Moore, whose joys and sorrows she shared for sixty
long years.  The death of her cherished companion,
who was well and favorably known in this county, preceded her own nearly
four years.  In this bereavement she felt the keenest cut of her life.
She spent a large portion of her time in the homes of her dear children,
those whom she loved so well, and who were so kind to her, but early
felt that the strong Oak to which the vine so closely clung had
succumbed to the last storm.
        To this congenial union were born seven children, four sons and
three daughters, four of whom are still living, Dr. J.L. Moore, of
Washington Indiana, and Amanda J. Pearson, Wm. J. Moore and Edward J.
Moore, of this county.
        Her years were a life of industry, goodness, Christianity.  Her
hands were diligently employed with those of her helpmate in carving a
competency for their family and enough to protect themselves in
declining years.  Seeking the wilds of Indiana for an early home they
saw the strongholds of the wilderness transformed into broad fields of
waiving golden grain.  Truly, "She sought wool and flax, and worked
willingly with her hands.  She laid her hands to the spindle, and her
hands held the distaff."  The poor and needy were never turned
ungratefully from her door.  Wherever a tender womanly heart or
sympathetic hands could relieve, even at her own sacrifice, those were
practices of her entire life.  Many, oh many, arethe acts of charity
which are to-day recounted by all who have intimately known her.  So
familiar is the term "Uncle Uriah and Aunt 'Manda'".  Their universal
generosity seems to have indelibly fashioned this epithet.
        What happy days to her, when after her own sons and daughters
had grown to manhood and womanhood, the merry laugh and joyous shout of
grand-children resounded in her spacious halls.  But the eventful
changes in so long a life!  The joys of birth have alternated with the
sorrows of death.  "The good old mother in Israel" has dropped tears in
the coffin of her own offspring, and no doubt was thus drawn nearer to
God.  Poor Old Soul!  She
bravely bore the conditions, trials and afflictions of life even unto
death!  Upon her last bed she sweetly whispered the sentiments of her
existence, her thankfulness to her creator, and her willingness to die.
"I am ready and want to die"; "I wish to stay no longer".
        She had gone to visit a dear son.  Soon the restless had of
death had seized its victim.  She lingered, weakened, and died.  Kind
hands, incessantly at the bedside, could not save.  Death alone could
relieve.  In the silence and darkness of the early morning hour the
Spirit won its victory and took its flight Heavenward.  As the portals
open to admit the Immortal to the pearly New Jerusalem, there stands
before God's great white throne a new spotless angel, and her happy
sacred songs are mingled with the choral anthems in the skies.
        On Thursday, August 11th at 3 o'clock a multitude of relatives,
old acquaintances and friends listened to the last sad rites by Rev.
Culmer, and saw the body laid in its quiet resting place by the side of
her husband in the cemetery at Shiloh, there to await the awakening of
the dead in the final resurrection morn.
        And now Earth shall be to thee no more!  Thou art sleeping thy
last long sleep!  May thy kindred revere thy name because of the life
thou hast lived, and though they know they have one less friend on earth
may they realize they have one more tie in heaven!

The Christian Record Elder J. M. Mathes editor

Statistical Report
The following churches were heard from, at the Annual State Meeting, which

Lawrence County, Ind., June 30th, 1846.
Brother Mathes,
I would inform you and the readers of the "Christian Record," that on the
1st
Lord's day in May, brother J. J. Sadler held a meeting with us, when two
noble young ladies made the good confession. On the 5th Lord's day in May,
bro. M. R. Trimble was with us, and delivered some four or five
discourses,
and the result was eleven additions to the church, six by letter and five
by
baptism. May the Lord add daily to the church such as shall be saved.
Your brother in the Lord,
Edward Sellars

(3) September 1846, p. 94.
Lawrence County, Ind., Aug. 25th, 1846.
Brother Mathes,
With great pleasure I sit down to inform you and your readers, that on the
third Lord's day in this month, at a meeting held in Spice Valley, six
persons volunteered for the heavenly country, and were baptised forthwith
in
White River, by Eld. Abraham Kern; while the brethren and sisters present
rejoiced much in the Lord. O Lord revive thy good begun work, and carry it
on
over the head of all opposition, until all come to know and obey the
truth!
Your brother in the Lord,
Edward Sellars

(4) August 1849, p. 64.
Brother Mathes: After so long a time, I set down to inform you of the
death
of our little daughter, Mary Catherine Sellars. She took her flight to the
spirit land on the 12th of May last. She was nine years one month and
twelve
days old. - Her illness only lasted about eight days. She had her right
mind
to the last moment. About two hours before her death, I asked her if she
thought she was going die and leave us. She said she did not know, I then
asked her if she would rather stay with her pappa; she answered , I
reckon.
She then said to me; pappa, I wish you and Mother would stay with me all
the
time, as though she had just got a glimpse of another world, and soon
after
her spirit fled.

O brother Mathes! How hard it seems for us tp part with our dear children!
-
This is the seventh and last of our children, who have gone to the
promised
land, except three who are of age and doing for themselves. We are now all
alone, but we hope to see them againin the land of everlasting rest.
Yours in the good hope.
Edward Sellars

Mason, Ill., November 10, 1870.
Bro. Mathes,
We have had another fine meeting here, held by Bro. M. T. Smith, of
Noblesville, Ind. We had excellent preaching but no additions.
Edward Sellers

(6) July 1870, p. 321.
Mason, Ill., June 2, 1870
Bro. Mathes: - We have a small church here of about twenty members, and
another in the country, some three miles out, of one hundred members. Bro.
Clayborn Wright is the preacher, with J. I. Bush, and I help what I can.
Your old brother,        Edward Sellers

(7) November 1870, p. 521
Bro Mathes: - We have just closed a meeting last night, with 12 additions,
11
of them by immersion - one, an old lady about 70 years of age, the wife of
an
old Methodist preacher, or at least he had been. He does not preach any
now.
Nine of the number were young ladies. One young man was immersed, and an
excellent lady of our town united by letter. The meeting lasted nine days.
The Interest increased to the last, and last night the people could not
near
all get into the house. Our preacher was M. T. Smith, of Noblesvile, Ind.
We
meet every Lord's day to break the loaf.
As ever yours,
Edward Sellers

(8) December 1870, p. 565
Mason, Ill., Oct. 19, 1870
Bro. Mathes: - We have captured two more members from the Methodist
Episcopal
Church, or rather the truth has captivated them - a man and his wife. Some
of
the Methodists call it "stealing," but I do not, for they came
voluntarily.
Your brother in Christ,
Edward Sellers

(9) July 1871, p. 330
Brother Edward Sellers, of Mason, Ill., under date of June 22, [1871]
writes:
"We had a meeting, held by Bro. J. M. Berry, of your county, some two
weeks,
closing on the fifth Lord's day in April, with the following result: Five
by
relation, three from the Baptists, one from the Methodists and two from
the
world; in all, eleven. Bro. Buchannon, of Rising Sun, Ind., also preached
for
ud some days, including the fourth Lord' day in May; no additions. Bro.
Borroughs, of Marshall, Illinois, also visited us recently. Please request
our preaching brethren, when they pass this way, to give us a call."

(10)February 1872, p. 96
Mason, Ill., Jan. 10, 1872.
Bro. Mathes: - This will inform you and your readers that my wife, Amelia
Sellers, departed this life January 5, 1872. She died in great peace,
exhorting us all to meet her in heaven. This she continued to the last
breath. I am now left all alone in this world. But I think I shall follow
her
before long. Brethren and sisters, pray for me in my lonely home, that my
last days may be my happiest days. My wife's age was about sixty-eight
years.
Edward Sellers

(11) November 1871, p. 518
Brother E. Sellers of Mason, Ill., under date of Sept. 27th, writes"
"Brother
Jacob Wright, of Covington, Ind., has just closed a successful meeting at
East Union, three miles east of this place, where Brother C. Wright lives.
The meeting began on Friday, before the 3d Lord's day in September, and
continued some ten days, 4 were immersed. He then came up to Mason and
delivered three discourses to good acceptance."

Franklin, Ind., Nov 27, 1872.

Another of the Faithful Gone to His Reward.---Bro. Edward Sellers was born
the 18th day of March, A.D., 1802, in Knox Co., Kentucky.  He joined the
Methodist Episcopal Church in Laurel county, Ky., on the 11th day of
January,
1823, in which Church he became a class leader and an exhorter.  On the
20th
day of March following, he was married to Miss Amelia Martin, with whom he
lived until her death; which occurred on the 5th day of Jan. 1872.  After
living in the M.E. Church some four years, Bro. Sellers became better
enlightened on the subject of baptism, and consequently dissatisfied with
his
sprinkling, (his Methodist brethren would not immerse him), the result of
which was, he left th M.E. Church and united with the regular Baptists;
with
whom he lived in harmony some four years longer.  In the year 1828, he
moved
to Lawrence county, Ind., where he lived about two years before he again
attached himself to any church.  During this interval he heard for the
first
time, the ancient apostolic gospel preached by Elder Abraham Kern, Joseph
Hostetler, Isaac Martin and numerous others of the great reformation of
the
19th century, to which his truth-loving mind, readily triumphing over
party
prejudices, yielded a hearty and soul-cheering assent.  He became a member
of
the Church of Christ in the summer of 1830.  To the membership of this
church, to-wit, White River Union, Bro. Sellers was a welcome accession.
Shortly after his connection with this congregation he was ordained a
preacher or evangelist.  In this Church Bro. Sellers lived for a period of
thirty-five years in perfect peace and fellowship with the brotherhood,
zealously laboring as far as his health would admit, earnestly contending
for
the faith once delivered to the saints.  In June, 1863, Bro. Sellers again
moved to Effingham county, in the State of Illinois.  On the 10th day of
Sept., 1867, Bro. Sellers moved to Mason, a town on the I. & C. R.R. in
the
same county.  In the year 1868, a small congregation of disciples was
organized in Mason, at which time brother and sister Sellers were among
the
first to become members.  In this town they lived much beloved by the
church,
and highly esteemed as citizens to the close of their earthly labors.
They
both suffered great afflictions in their latter years; he with cancer in
the
face, and she with chronic rheumatism.  Their deep and painful sufferings
were borne by both with Christian patience and resignation.  In her death
she
preceded her husband six months and eighteen days.  He died on the 23rd
day
of July, 1872; aged 7o years, 4 months and 5 days.

Afflictions o'er their life prevailed,
Wave after wave in floods were driven;
Faith manned their bark, they safely sailed,
The last wave rolled them on to heaven.  J.D. Bush.
