I see that you are the Sellers Page webmaster, thanks for your efforts.
The information that you requested, I'm afraid, will be coming
piecemeal. First, though, WILLIAM SELLERS married three times, first to
SARAH PURDUE (mother of DANIEL M. SELLERS, b. 7/24/1811 and 5 other
children), and second to ANN ELEANOR DOWNING (mother of JOHN HENRY
SELLERS, b. 6/27/1821, my ancestor). Also, please tell me where the
WILLIAM SELLERS, ESTATE 1846=adB page 264 c2423 data can be found.
>From DIGEST OF OBITUARIES PUBLISHED IN NEWSPAPERS OF COLUMBIA CITY,
WHITLEY COUNTY, INDIANA, 1856-1910, Compiled by Nellie M. Raber.
SELLERS, Daniel M. was born in Licking Co.,
Ohio on 24 July 1811; died
at his home in Troy Tp., Whitley Co., Ind on 26 Nov. 1899. He married
Mary Ann Prosser in Delaware Co. Ohio on 17 Nov. 1837. She died about 7
years ago leaving 6 of her 9 children. They came to Whitley Co. Ind. in
1845 locating on the farm where each died. Thefuneral service was held
in the Troy Presbyterian Church whth Rev. D.W.Sanders officiating;
burial was in the church cemetery. (C.C.P., 29 Nov. 1899)

I don't believe that we have ever gotten a copy. The William
Ohio that served in the War of 1812 might be worth looking into as well.
I have been taking the path of less resistance, concentrating on
descendants, with a possible reunion in mind. So far, I've got about 80 adults named,
with about 40 located.
For me, the William Sellers estate papers from Muskingum County,
proved that he was not my line. I will check the ohperry page, but I
couldn't make a connection when I looked a year ago.

Thank you, Bob Sellers, for your email about the grave of W. H. Sellers
in the Corinth, Miss. cemetery. He was the eldest son of John Henry and
Julia Ann Wells Sellers, of Greenfield, Highland, OH. He was born
1/11/1844 and died 6/11/1862. I am descended from Grover Sellers, the
second son, who also served.
I have suspected, but never been able to establish a connection between
Alexander Sellers and John Henry Sellers. John Henry left his father's
family in Delaware Co., OH (they later migrated to NE Indiana) to go south
to Highland Co. Why? Possibly a uncles's or cousin's recommendation?
Grover Comstock Sellers did, indeed, marry the Reynolds sisters. Judy
Reynolds, who is related to Nancy Ann Reynolds (SELLERS-L email of 4/15/05)
says, however, that Lucy Florence and Sara Jane are not her line.
There is some confusion over where William, father of John H., was born.
The 1880 census for son Daniel M. (Whitley, IN) shows William born in OH.
Daniel's biographical sketch states that William was a native of PA of
German descent. At the moment, I've lost track of my 1850/1860 census
images for William Sellens/Sellers in Allen, IN.

Thanks, John Sellers
I know you are looking for newer relation to find you. hope so.
BUT, we also NEED the PA birth places of these SELLERS in OH.
SOME kids were born in PA. where?
CIVIL WAR file may show town, state of birth .
Also we have the WM SELLERS in war of 1812. is he yours? and Daniel 1811 FIRST
do we have or did he file for 1812 pension/bounty land? sometimes these files don't have a lot of info, but, we should have.
WHAT info do we have?
thanks, marie, iowa
Sorry, none of these Sellers kids were were born in PA. All of them that
served in the Civil War were born in OH or IN.
You are right about WM Sellers, father of Daniel, serving in the 1812 War.
His widow pension papers, alas, do not show a place of birth. I haven't yet
sent for his bounty land papers.
