SHARON BAPTIST CHURCH,CEMETERY,  Salem, Ind (Washington Co)=

ROBERT SELLERS
1765-1827
Erect by great grandaugher, Mrs. Kent SMITH


Sharon Cemetary is in Wash. Twp., Wash. Co., IN.  In the Wash. Twp. Cem.
book, page 450, I find listed:

SELLERS, ROBERT, b. 1765, d.1827; sp: Sarah Hill; note: Robert was a
Revolutionary War soldier. (we have found no record of this, msh)

There is a note in the cemetary book that says there are many people
buried at Sharon Cem., but only a few stones remain.  Robert is the only
Sellers reported as buried there.

Franklin Twp. Cem. book, page 47:
FARABEE, MARGARET, d. 2 Oct 1862, aged 26y, 10m, 10d; 2nd wife of Alfred
Farabee; dau of Moses W. and Margaret Sellers.

I checked all the other Wash. Co. cem records, except Crown Hill, which I
don't have, and these are the only references to SELLERS in them.

I don't have any Clark Co., IN records, so I really can't help you there.
Sorry.  Hope the above is some help.  Later. JWM

Subject:
             John Sellers

        From:
             Jane <spicetea@mindspring.com>
          Saw a recent posting re John Sellers s/o Robert/Sarah Hall Sellers--did
he go to Louisiana, etc.

Have the following from Probate Court Minutes Book C (1837-1841) re John
Sellers estate--Washington Co IN Nov 14, 1839. P. 102 Moses W(ilkerson)
Sellers appointed Administrator, with Levi Wright, Security, of the
Estate of John Sellers, late of the county of Washington, State of
Indiana, deceased.

p 308 dated Nov 13, 1840.  Moses Sellers, adm of the estate of John
Sellers, deceased,
files the account current.  Dec 29, 1839, listing
heirs:  Elizabeth Simmons and Benjamin Simmons, Sarah Duckworth and John
Duckworth, Rebecca Hartley, Robert Sellers, Anna Fisher and Jacob
Fisher, Candace Cunningham and James Cunningham, Moses W. Sellers,
Joshua Sellers, Heirs of Richard Campbell, Young Sellers, Ambrose
Carlton Sellers.

Hope this clears up some confusion.

In the Guardianship book, page 72 and 73, I find the following:

"To the Honorable Isaac Thomas, Judge of the Probate Court of Wash. Co.,

that the transcriber of this record wrote an "n" that someone thought
looked like and "a").
