CONNECTED also to VA SELLERS/ZELLERS=JAMES' PAGE 2



Let me explain my connection. First, I've been researching my Sellers
line for about 9 years now and have a pretty good idea who these people
were. My great great etc...... grand parents were Isaac and Rebekah
Sellers who lived in Harrison County, KY. I descend through their son
Jonathan and his wife Elizabeth (Cathers) Sellers then through Lewis and
(recheck this line for possible deletion

Nancy (Moore) Sellars. Jonathan had several brothers and sisters
including Isaac Sellers (m. Nancy Brandon) who went to Wayne and Madison
County, IN during the early 19th century. My family went from Harrison
to Laurel County, KY and then to Lawrence County, IN.

You may notice my last name is spelled a little different than most
others in the family. Lewis Sellars was the first of the family to spell
it that way. His brother, Edward and his descendants, spell it
"SELLERS." We always knew we had cousins in Lawrence County but the
names were spelled differently.

If we are of the same family lets share information. Take care.

Sincerely,
James Sellars

        Sellers/McDaniel

   From:
        "Sellars, James SSgt" <sellarsj@kadena.af.mil>

I saw some e-mail on your web page from Sherry and Monte regarding John
Sellers and Eneas McDaniel. I think I can clear up who the John Sellers
is that made a deposition regarding Eneas McDaniel's Land. Here it is.

John Sellers was living in Westmoreland Co. PA in 1775. He was referred
to in John Wood's land deed (Dec 1775), this land adjoined "land claimed
by John Sellers." Sellers and John Hinkson were witnesses to the deed.
He was the son of Samuel Sellers of Cumberland Co. PA. John was married
to Mary (Wood?) abt 1774. In 1776 he came to KY w/ several settlers some
of whom were John Hinkson, John Wood, John Haggin and others. Hinkson
had made a small settlement the year before on the South Fork Licking
River. John Sellers made an improvement 4 miles north of Hinkson's
Station (AKA Ruddles) and on the north side of the SF Licking River.
[near Sellers Run] He returned to PA in July of 1776 because of Indian
attacks. He served as a Lieutenant under Capt. John Hinkson in
Westmoreland Co. PA until 1780.

Hinkson and Sellers returned to KY and tried to go back to their
settlement on the SF Licking. At this time Hinkson's abandoned station
was rebuilt by Capt Isaac Ruddle and referred to as such. They stopped
at Limestone but could not get help in moving the families over to
Ruddles, so they continued to the Falls (Louisville). They went over
land and arrived at Ruddles station just a few days before it was taken
by the British and Indians on June 24, 1780. The Draper Manuscripts has
many depositions regarding the capture and it states that John Hinkson
and John Sellers were the only two who made their escape after the
capture.

John Sellers went on to live at the Falls then Harrodsburgh and then
Woodford Co. by 1790. His 1,400 acre preemption was sold off during the
1790's. He and James Powers were joint grantors in the land but neither
of them settled on it. Portions were sold to John Wall and Robert
Harrison. The portion Harrison purchased was used to establish the south
eastern part of Cynthiana.

I know of no connection with McDaniels other then the fact John Sellers
may have seen him while settling his land in 1776. I have seen the
deposition that mentions McDaniel, and others that mention John Sellers.
All the records I have clearly show the John Sellers who was in KY in
1776 was the one who eventually settled in Woodford County. One of the
deed transactions with this land said "John Sellers and his wife Mary of
Woodford Co."

The John Sellers [actually Seller] who married Elizabeth Finley that
lived in Harrison county and died in 1798 was his cousin and son of
Nathaniel Sellers of Cumberland Co. PA. He came to KY for the first time
in 1780 and settled near Danville then Sugar Creek Garrard County and
then to Harrison Co. in 1795.

I'm not aware of any Sellers in Bracken that are related to these two
John Sellers. Most of John's family moved to Putnam Co. IN and Preble
Co. OH.

There was however a Henry Sellers who lived in Harrison Co. and may be
connected to your Sellers/McDaniel connection. He was not related to my
Sellers line.

Another thing you might find interesting there was a Robert McDaniel,
Mrs. McDaniel and children that were also taken at Ruddles Station in
1780. May be related.

Go to:
http://hastings.webpub.com/~jhagee/ruddles.html

This page mentions Sellers and McDaniels. In the text files I sent you
earlier there is some material on John Sellers who was at Ruddles.

I hope I didn't confuse you too bad. If anyone has any questions I'll
try to answer them for you. I can also give you any records regarding
the John Sellers who was in KY in 1776 including a map I made based on
surveys of where the land was located. I'll have to send that by regular
mail though.

Sincerely,
James Sellars

[The Christian Record, Vol 7, No.1, Bedford Indiana, January, 1873]

Edward Sellers
by Elder J. M. Mathes, Editor
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.

In Memorium Amanda  Moore
by Emmit F. Sutherland

        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 Sellars.  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!
