The family of John Henry and Anna Maria appear to have lived near
near the Monger family. John Henry was listed in most records as "Henry."
Adam, Peter and John had adjoining farms to John Henry. John Henry had sold
land to these men also, and to Henry Monger his son-in-law. I have seen on
this list that Johannes or John Zeller and Elizabeth Perky were the parents
of Jacob who married Christina Runkle and Christina Monger. The information
have from the Monger history which references the Rush Co., IN history says
that Adam was his father and that he died in Warren Co., OH in 1821 age 79.
I'm thinking that John and Elizabeth Perky Sellers were Jacob's Aunt and

could be considered accurate. I hope.
