APRIL 2006

I am looking for information about Emma Sellers Rock b 1861 d 1915 m Amos Rock 1880

Based on info from 1880 Census Emma and Amos lived with what is believed to be her father John H Sellers and step mother Hannah Sellers. Her brother Elmer and Johns brother Milton also lived there.

I looked up info on Emma and Elmer. I find them in other census records living with Nelson and Sarah Sellers as their children. Same ages and everything.

Any insight into this family would be greatly appreciated


JENNIFER, I like the similarity of names, but, check out EMMA'S marriage and follow her on.
She appears to be still here in 1880, when we are in Tippecanoe Co., In?
same as you saw with Nelson Sellers?

I know that MY Emma Sellers married William Amos Rock in Tippecanoe Co, Indiana, 25 Jan 1880 and I have all info from her all the way back to me but beyond her is the stumper but I am working on it
thx for your help


JENNIFER, it appears her father is JOHN SELLERS ca 1835 OH.
and her brother ELMER.

Which child do you connect to and where did they go/marry, etc.
This info may help further down the road.

FONDA ROCK is also working on this family, related?

WE need help on where JOhn SELLERS 1835 was born so we can find his parents and siblings. Well, we know Milton was a brother and we still can't find parents!

Need middle names, maybe?

Help where you can.
