     Isaac Sollars (1786 St.Clair, PA - Mar 1830 Moscow, Clermont Co., OH)
was the younger brother of Samuel Sollars, both being sons of Isaac and
Elizabeth Blackmore Sollers of Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Kentucky.  He
married "Patsy" in Concordia Parish, LA.
To this marriage was born five
known children:
Alexander Buchanan SOLLERS, 2 Jul 1815, LA;
Martha, 1816;
Julia Anne, 1826;
Lucy Anne, 1828; and
Ruth Jane in 1828.

Patsy Sollars
died in 1829 in LA or Claremont Co., OH.  In marriage records, Isaac's
daughters carried the SOLLARS spelling.
However, Isaac's descendants through
son Alexander, carried the SOLLERS spelling, where Samuel and decsendants
carried the SOLLARS spelling.
    Samuel's son, John Sollars, handled the estate of his Uncle Isaac
Sollers and even made a trip to Natchez in settlement of same.  Isaac's
wife's given name was Patsy.  I would greatly appreciate "exchanging"
information with anyone interested in this family.  As well as more
information, I have some pictures of early Isaac and Patsy Sollers
descendants.
    I don't follow the question, "Was LA mentioned?"  Was this asking if the
State of Louisiana mentioned?  Could elaborate on this?
    War of 1812 Muster Rolls: Name: Isaac Sollers, Company: Declouet's
Regiment, Louisiana Militia. Enlisted as Sergeant. Discharged as Sergeant.
Roll Box: 195, Roll Extraction: 602, Roll Record:13901 - This is our Isaac
Sollars. If anyone has the wherewithall to look up this record, I would
dearly love a copy of what they find, as it may provide more details of just
where he and family lived in LA.
    There was an Isaac SELLERS who was a noted steamboat Captain, and if
memory serves, he was the first to use the nom de plume of Mark Twain, well
before the author of Tom Sawyer used it.  As I remember it, he went up the
Mississippi on a run, and died somewhere in the north. His body was returned
to New Orleans on his boat. When it neared the city, church bells rang and
steamboat whistles blarred loudly for this much loved man.
    If you have details on this particular ISAAC SELLERS and his life, I
know I for one would enjoy reading it.  I'm sure others would as well.
Best regards to all, Bob Sollars

HERMON,
Still don't know WHO this SAMUEL SELLERS , methodist preacher is.
born ca 1790 or before?
IDEAS?
I believe these LA and MS counties lay across/NEXT  from each other?

ANY MORE METHODIST CHURCH info?

Thanks for sharing,
marie, iowa

(ck Mathew Sellers 1743, son Samuel 1775, msh)



ROBERT, Thank You!

The LA = meant that my memory remembered something about LA and it was NOT
in my papers on ISAAC SOLLERS and maybe you could remember. But, I believe it was
you stating the  kids born in LA (altho Alex states his birth place as OH in 1815)
JOHN SOLLERS just made the trip to MS not LA?
(CONCORDIA, LA lays on the MS border and next to CATAHOULA)

Only possible marriages I found in Fayette  Co, Oh =
JULY ANN SOLLARS/JOHN REDER, DEC 1, 1846
ALEXANDER SOLLARS/MARY ANN TRUET,JUN 25, 1837 (think he stayed and buried here)
might do a search or followup on her?

THE WAR OF 1812 INDEX =
 NAME: Sollers, Isaac
          RANK: Sergeant
          COMPANY: De Clouet's Reg't., La. Militia

BUT, the 1812 Pension list does NOT list him. So, assuming NO one applied
for pension or bounty land?
Didn't see any LA land grant for him.

I forgot about the Muster Roll till I reread your letter! Will check, If I
have any info, will send. I doubt it.

There is an ISAAC SELLERS in
1810 ATTAKAPS PAR , LA=
ISAAC SELLERS, PAGE 80 = 01100-00100-00
WHEN do you think he think he went to LA?
and
CATAHOULA PARISH-1820
SELLERS, Isaac, page 17 (don't have the census info - DOES ANYONE HAVE,
please Send)
and
1830 CLERMONT CO, OH
ISAAC SOLLERS, PAGE 239 MOSCOW
0010001-2111=
male 40/50 , =1780/90
male  10/15,=1815/20
and oldest female 15/20 = 1810/15
and females
10/15,=1820/30
5/10,=1820/25
and two females u 5=1825/30

Don't seem to have much on LA marriages which would sure help! ANYONE HAVE?
Please Send.

ISAIAH SELLERS info =
http://showcase.netins.net/web/sellerfamily/isaiah.htm

I believe you have to be "Invited" to look at myfamily.com files, etc?

Thank you for sharing and best wishes for the holidays.

Marie,
    Glad to be of help and hope others out there can contribute to the
growing file.
    I have it that all the children were born in Louisiana.  I presume that
Isaac Lost his wife Patsy, during or within days of the birth of their last
daughter in Louisiana and promptly moved to Claremont Co., OH., possibly in
ill health himself at the time and wishing to be closer to his siblings.
   Son, Alexander Buchanan (A B) Sollars, was born July 2, 1815 in
"Louisiana."   AB went to Adams County (adjacent to Ross County) Ohio and
married Mary Jane Hamilton about 1856.    A. B. was a circuit rider for the
Methodist church.   He died in 1895 in Peeples, Adams County, Ohio.
   I have to question his above year of birth... According to his father's
estate papers, dated 8 Nov 1830, Alexander B. Sollers was 12 years of age.
this would make his year of birth 1818, not 1815, and his sister Martha
Sollars as 14 years of age (being born in 1816).  This is backed up by the
1830 Census of Claremont Co., OH that shows him younger than his sister
Martha Sollars who was born in 1816.
   Some of the children may have returned to Louisiana to live with their
maternal grandparents or possibly maternal aunts and uncles.  This would
explain why no marriages are found for them in OH.
===
I believe this part is from ROBERT SOLLARS
   This Fayette Co., OH marriage: ALEXANDER SOLLARS/MARY ANN TRUET, JUN 25,
1837, is from my branch of the Sollars Family Tree.   He was the son of John
and Catherine Stothard Sollars, born in 1813, OH.  John and my
gr-grandfather, Truman R. Sollars, were 1st cousins.

Database: Louisiana Census, 1810-90
Combined Matches: 1

Year Surname Given Name (s) County State Page Township or Other Info Record
Type Database ID#
1860 SOLLERS A. B. Orleans Parish LA 995 New Orleans 11th Ward Federal
Population Schedule LA 1860 Federal Census Index LA390110974

I'd say A. B's stay in Orleans Parish, LA was brief if the birth of their
children is any record... It reads like a roadmap!
1. Wilbur Kavanaugh Sollers, 31 Mar 1858, in Lawrence Co., OH
2. George Henry Sollers, 4 Jan 1860, in MO
3. Mary Bushy Sollers, 4 Feb 1861, in (?)
4. Lavinia Gillespie Sollers, 27 May 1863, in (?)
5. Robert Lee Sollers, 20 Oct 1864, in KY
6. Elizabeth Ann Sollers, 6 Dec 1866, in (?)
7. Louella B. Sollers, 10 Aug 1868, in McArthur, Vinton Co., OH
8. Clayton Alexander Sollers, 18 Sep 1873, Locust Grove, Adams Co., OH
9. Adda Martha Sollers, 4 Aug 1875, Locust Grove, Adams Co., OH

A. B. Sollers, being a circuit rider for the Methodist Church, certainly got
him around the country in a far ranging path!   I did not have the marriage
date of A. B. and Mary Jane Hamilton Sollers, but it was in about 1856 in
Adams Co., OH.  Do you have records for Adams Co., OH within your reach???

Jumping around here:
   Isaac died intestate, Nov. 8, 1830, his nephew, John Sollars, was
appointed administrator of his estate.  Samuel Sollars, Isaac's brother, and
their cousin, Joseph Blackmore, were surities of $1400.  Benjamin Rodgers,
William Campbell, and Alexander Smith were appraisers. This was duly
recorded in the Washington Court House, court house in Fayette Co., OH where
Samuel Sollars and son, John, Reside.  Samuel traveled to Moscow, Clermont
Co., OH to get the children of his deceased brother. On Nov. 11, 1830,
Alexander and Martha Sollars, minors over 12 and 14 years of age,
respectively, chose their Uncle Samuel Sollars as their legal guardian. The
court likewise appointed him guardian of Lucy, Julia, and Ruth Sollars.

In behalf of his Uncle Isaac's estate, John made a number of trips in the
settlement of said estate. One such trip was made to Natches, Mississippi
"where goods, etc., had been left."  He received $56.50 for said goods, Etc.
The trip took 69 days at a cost of $69.00 (1 dollar per day).  He made three
trips to Moscow, Ohio and two to Mount Pleasant.

It is thought that Isaac's children may have returned south, perhaps to
their mother's relatives.

That is about it for this time.  Thanks for the Capt Isaiah Sellers
material.  I had it some correct, except he died downstream, not upstream,
and it was St. Louis, not New Orleans!  I enjoyed reading about him again.
Enough "firsts" to his credit, that I am amazed that a movie was never made
about him, or at least a book of his life.  He was certainly an achiever,
and never lost the respect of the people who knew him.  His life and
acquaintances such as Samuel Clemons, who was also an admirer,  broadens the
quality of his surroundings to make such a book or movie a quality feature,
even if made for TV.

I'm looking forward to more input. Thanks too for the Claremont Co., OH 1830
Census. That was helpful.

Best regards,
            Bob Sollars

You are correct, the MyFamily.com family files are by invitation only.  It
has its good points and it has its bad points having this policy.



ROBERT,  Thanks. I can NOT follow this family and we don't seem to have
enough
LA info available and evidently we quit posting info to ADAMS CO, OH after
1830/40.

So Sorry, can't contribute/share right now, but, we will continue saving
info to same.
Maybe, more now that we have this info.
I couldn't find the  1870 A. SELLERS, PAGE 675 IN NEW ORLEANS (just
ancestry.com
census-didn't have actual record)
and the 1860 A.B.SOLLERS page 995 ORLEANS, LA is not him = female

and I didn't Find ANY of these KIDS of ISAAC SELLERS dec'd 1830 in 1850? did
you?
I did NOT check for a CIVIL WAR file on ALEXANDER BUCHANNAN SELLERS = should
do.

MY after 1850 OH marriages does NOT show ADAMS CO, OH?
DOES ANYONE HAVE?

1880 ADAMS CO, OH = any ideas? I may have a 1900 soundex to check

they didn't
