BACK OF SELLERS PICTURE (scroll way down below picture)

THREE SISTERS

 

Shad Sellers born 1822 was  married to Ann Nisely (Kniceley) They were the Aunt and Uncle of my Grandmother Nora Summersgill High. They lived in Waynesburg, PA  I have several Sellers pictures. I can send to you next week.  I am at work now and am leaving for Florida in a couple of days. I have the pictures scanned into my laptop so next week while on vacation I will send to you. I also have a box of unidentified pictures. I have not scanned them yet but hope to do so soon. Some of them may be from the Sellers family. My grandmother’s home was in the family for over 120 years so  I have so many pictures, documents, etc. that were in the home.

JOANNE,  can you send me some dates and places? Have the Sellers web pages and discussion group and often help others find their families, etc. Our members probably appreciated sharing your Sellers pictures.

Thank you . marie, iowa

JOANNE,
Yes, have several Sellers working on these families.
We have cemetery pictures, wills, etc, but not much on personal pictures.
We can make a page for these pictures and a link to you from our Greene Co, Pa page.
Your Sellers cousins will love these. So nice of you to share!
 
HELP me connect Nora Summersgill to a parent. sorry, I don't have all of Shadracks's kids continued on.
 
Enjoy Florida!
my daughter lives in Pensacola.
We are having snow and high winds tonite and below zero temps coming in.

Marie,

I just saw your post from 2003. You probably have found  the connection between Nora Summersgill High and the Sellers by now. If not please contact me. I am Nora’s granddaughter. I have several Seller pictures which you might be interested in.

=============

Thanks for all the information on Shadrack’s children. I didn’t have much information on them except for their names. One thing I noticed is they lived to a ripe old age for that time. Shadrack’s aunt, my  great grandmother  Margaret Baltzell Summersgill  and her brother Lewis also lived into their 90’s as did my grandmother Nora High. I am sending you the pictures I have shortly.
