List of Applications for taverns and eating houses=1885, George Sellers
Gordon House Rogerville Pa.
Hi Judy, can't help you to much on this family. You will find below the 1850
through the 1880 Census of this family. You can also check out the 1840 Census
of his ( George's ) parents Dave & Elizabeth on the Sellers Green
County web site. just click onto this Green County Pa. Sellers I don't
have time now to check this out, but I am sure that David was the brother of
my George Sellers. ( Read # 868 Will of George Sellers on said web
site = listed under Green County Will's
). I do hope that this has helped . Please let me know what you think. Dennis

Dear Dennis, Reading your 1860 Census entry into showcase and I think
you are correct about this George Sellers being the son of David and Elizabeth
Sellers. I know Nancy is Nancy Rogers and in 1850 they had Roseberry Sellers
living with them. I would love to know more bout this family. Can
you tell me how to get direct my questions and answers to this web site?
Thanks for helping! Judy Hazlett Starsinic
PS: I would love to know about Roseberry Sellers who lived with George
and Nancy Sellers. I did see that he was a soldier in the Civil War. I
thought he was George's brother.

JUDY, Please , send a small Name, Age, Places on your
SELLERS and where any
of them went, etc.. Will send thro the SELLERS list for more
DENNIS, thanks for sending clear notes, etc. I believe JUDY
asked about this
ROSEBERRY SELLERS on 1850 census?
Could this be the ROSE----- IAMS dau of Mary? SELLERS and
Don't know if anyone has her marriage and 1860/80 census?
ADVISE. marie, iowa
Hi Marie, no the Roseberry Sellers that Judy is talking about
was a male Sellers from the Sellers clan of Green County Pa. I believe
that he was killed in the Civil War & is buried at the old cemetery
at Center Twp. Listed below is the 1880 census of Rose Imes family. Rose
died I believe in the year of 1879.
FDH. Dennis H.
YOU can bet I put a M behind his name on 1850 census. Thanks
and will add her 1880 family info.
Did Roseberry SELLERS' wife Mary draw a pension? didn't
see, unless he had
a middle name, etc? could be family names in same?
APRIL 4, 2003
Thank you for the response! I am searching for
and please edit as you see fit:
George Sellers, born 1820, and Nancy Rogers Sellers, born 1822
Looking for the parents of George Sellers, born circa 1820,
his brother and
sisters. I assume the parents are David and Elizabeth
Mitchell but have not
found proof of this.
George Sellers and Nancy Rogers Sellers are the parents of
grandmother, Anna Sellers Ullom who married Dr. John T. Ullom.
Judith Hazlett Starsinic
PS: Roseberry Sellers, Civil War Soldier, was listed as living
Sellers and Nancy Rogers Sellers in the 1850 Census.
I would love to know
who Roseberry's parents were.
okay, see ROSEBERRY SELLERS ca 1831 PA, male!
and the 1849 will/PROBATE of Christian SELLERS =
also Receipts of George Sellers Guardian of Roseberry
& Atkinson Sellers
& in his own Right Asa Sellers, Shadrick Sellers Susannah
Church & Margaret White, children of David Sellers for their shares
in full of the above balance,
LOOKS good. Dennis can probably help follow you thro this
He should be listed on the 1840 census also with these other
ANYthing you want to add, please send.
Do you have the census readings or kids of ANNA SELLERS ULLOM
AND where they went?

Good Morning Judy.
I have this day off from work so I decided to try to help you
with some of your research on your family, the Sellers & Ullom. The
first part of this information was taken from the Sellers Letters of June
1984 Vol. 3 # 3 page 52 written by Mary Sims. I believe that she found
said information from the book written in the year of 1935 pages 446
through 450 about the Green County Sellers Clan, also in same book page
371/372 tells about your Ullom family, the name of said book is the "Tenmile
County and It's Pioneer Families." By Howard Leckey. David Sellers.
S/O Christian and Susannah ( Hill ) Sellers married July 29, 1815, to
Elizabeth Mitchell. They had ten children, but I will stay with
your tree branch. David born about 1792. She (Elizabeth) was born also
abt. 1792 the daughter of Shadrack & Margaret ( Rinehart ) Mitchell.
David died DEC, 11, 1837 age 45 - 03 - and 17 days, & is buried at
Rogerville Cemetery. David's widow Elizabeth married a Elijah Ullom and
moved to Monroe County Ohio. Elizabeth died at the home of her son George

as 32 - 10 - 23 days, died Nov, 18, 1863. He married a Mary looks
like Remley. Children listed are James R. born 1854, Davis born 1856,
Helen born 1857 married a James B. Temple and Lizzie born 1860 she died
in 1863 I found her stone next to her fathers in the old Center Twp. Cemetery.
( there are only a few stones or markers left in said Cemetery, for they
built a wider road through said town, and moved most bodies & markers
to another cemetery, I believe Rosemont.)
# 6. Atkinson born 1832 married Lillie Detwyler. and the last
of D. & E. children is
# 7. Shadrack married Laura Ann Knicly. Judy I do hope that
this might help you with your family tree research> And if I can be

APRIL 6, 2003
Dear Marie, Thanks so much for the information! I have
the census records
pertaining to the following family and am still trying to sort
some of the
earlier ones. I am starting to receive help from your Sellers
Web Site and
am confident all will fall into place. I am attaching the
1850 census for
George Sellers and Nancy Rogers. George is on the first page
continued on the second page with Nancy Rogers. I am attaching
page because it has the Roseberry Sellers I am so curious about.
Here is just a little of what I have regarding Dr. John T. Ullom
Dr. John T. Ullom,
(son of Daniel Thompson Ullom and Anna Johnson)
and Anna Sellers,
(daughter of George Sellers, born 1820 and Nancy Rogers,
born Dec. 18,1822)

had two children: My father, Dr. Frank Dickerson
Hazlett born 1902 - died Sept,
1981 and Anne H. Hazlett born 1904 - died Oct. 2, 1997.
Anne H. Hazlett
married Walter Emerson Arnold of Vanderbilt, Pa.
#2 Dr. Frank Sellers Ullom was born in 1878 - Rogersville, Pa and
Waynesburg, Pa in 1929. Dr. Frank S. Ullom married Lucy Ross
( Dr. Frank Sellers Ullom and Lucy Ross are buried in the Rosemont

Hi Judy, I have a question for you. I sent you a copy of your
John T. & Mary Ann Ullom 1880 Census. Listed in said census is a child
named Frank Ullom age 2.
I have listed buried with this family a Dr. Frank Sellers Ullom
D. 10 - 29 - 1929 age 51yr 4mo 22days. Which makes this Frank Sellers
Ullom born abt 1878? So do you know for sure if this is the son Frank listed
in the 1878 census.
Thanks FDH Dennis.
april 6, 2003
JUDY, thank you!
I believe DENNIS has sent you many pages on our families AND appreciate
you showing your connection.
Will continue on.
april 8, 2003
I was reading some information in my Ullom book
and found the following correction and addition.
Rogersville, Pa. ) Frank Ullom, born 1910 - died 1986,
Hoskins of Waynesburg and retired to Florida after working for one of
major airlines. I do not have any information about John Ross
than he married Opal______.
Ellen Hoskins should be Ellen Hoskinson.
John Ross Ullom - born 1907 - married Opal St. Clair - born 1913
John Ross Ullom and Opal St. Clair had a son:
John Ullom, born 1946, married Catherine Mruk.
send cc/copies of info to DENNIS =FDHaun@aol.com
he is kinda 'mothering?' your family. and has the knowledge to
BUT, yes, we want copies of info sent to SELLERS also (cc to me
if Not member Will be forwarded to SELLERS)
WILL add to your page as I don't think we have a separate ULLOM page?
THANKS, best wishes and Thanks for sharing SELLERS. marie, iowa

Dear Dennis, I have been trying to fill in the family history and
understand there is no proof about Christian Sellers, Bedford, or where
came before that. Am I right? I see some people saying he
Switzerland and others saying he ("he" meaning the immigrant ancestor)
from Germany. May I ask how far back you have taken your proven
line? Do you know if the DAR Application papers posted on the Sellers
Site were ever accepted by the DAR? May I ask why you think Roseberry
Sellers was killed in the Civil War? I saw the Pension papers filed
wife, Mary, but I did not know if they were filed due to his death or
because of an injury - perhaps causing him some disability. He does
gravestone in Rogersville? I did not know they brought soldiers
home to be
buried. I know nothing about this and if you have any information
the policy of "dead soldiers during the Civil War" I would love to have
information. Thanks, Dennis
PS: My next big search is to find out way they named Roseberry that name.
Seems the family could have been related to the Roseberry Family.
this is not always the case but I feel the need to be sure..
april 9, 2003
JUDY, just a note.
MOST of the INFO you have sent/shared with us was Sent thro the SELLERS
DENNIS is the One, I saw that responded with help.
SOME of your letters were coming Just to Me? so , I thought you should
send a cc to Dennis also, so he could follow thro, etc
I usually send these thro to the SELLERS group also, so they can respond,
etc. in case they didn't see others.
NOW, YOU are the ONE who needs to take this info and
yes, write to others
SOME maybe Old email address (you can try and find new email addresses,
just like on any letters, etc)
SOMETIMES, WE don't have ALL answers, etc to ALL SELLERS families, YOU
must continue your line.
AND try and find New info/documents to help us.
YOU can study the documents we have collected and follow thro the families.
YOU must SEE and understand the families, also.
NOT just accept info., etc.
DAR files = WE MUST prove these OURSELVES = USE the info they give and
check out documents.
SORRY, I have found many errors.
THEY did NOT have as many documents as we do now.
I believe YOU should order the CW file on him =
SOMETIMES good family info,
SOMETIMES not, but, if wife filed, usually good info.
wives collected AFTER HUSBAND died.
Don't know the rule on divorce? but, doesn't appear to apply here?
BUT grave shows he died?
I AM SORRY to have confused you.
YOU are trying, so you will continue.
THANKS for sharing and Caring.

Dear Dennis, Wondering if you know if our
Elizabeth Mitchell who married
David Sellers had a brother, Shadrack Mitchell? Shadrack Mitchell
Elizabeth Roseberry named one of their children David Sellers Mitchell.
David Sellers and Elizabeth Mitchell named one of their children Roseberry
Sellers. I am certain Shadrack and our Elizabeth Mitchell are brother
sister but I can't find the proof. Other genealogists feel the same
do not have the proof. Hope you can help. Judy

Dear Marie and Dennis, I hope someone can help me. I have a photo
Sellers men with their parents. The men seem to be 20 to 35 years of
the parents are well up in years. This photo appears to have been taken
the mid to late 1800's as the Mother is wearing a very long dress.
on the men have buttons. This photo was given to my family by a Nora
Summersgill High of Waynesburg, Pa - years ago. There is a note on
saying Nora Summersgill had an Uncle Shad who might have been a brother of
George Sellers. (George and Nancy Rogers Sellers) I checked what
could find for Summersgill but saw no connection to Sellers. I checked
ancestry for Fred High, her husband, and could find no connection.
enclosing the photo in this e-mail and let us hope these Sellers' can be
PS. The names I see on the back of the photo are George, Uncle Shad, Aunt
Ann, Mitchell, Dave, Fred, Harry. There is an Asa Sellers crossed
names seem to be a struggle for whoever tried to identify the photo.
