Dear Harold & Eddleman Cousins,

This timeline is a great idea!  I had some time a few months ago to do more
research on my West Virginia Eddleman family...checking some census
etc.  So following is the most recent timeline for my family.  I keep
thinking that just one or two more steps back and we have to connect to
someone!  :-)

Keep up the great work Harold!

Eddleman, John - Greene Co.  611  Morgan Twp
Sellers, James  - Greene Co.  303 Center Twp.
Lightner, Samantha A.  Greene Co.  284 Center Twp.

CHRIS - Sending thro our SELLERS DISCUSSION GROUP - Love These Census Info that tell AGES -
WHAT do you have on MARY SELLERS LIGHTNER and kids etc.

OUR SELLERS are good Sharers - But, we need to Know, Who, Where we Are!

Mary Sellers was born 1874 in Rogersville Greene Cty. PA.
She died in Alliance Ohio  1966 but was buried in Sand Hill Cemetary, Pa.

My Eddleman family comes from Hundred WV which is where Mary lived with her
husband Jefferson Eddleman.  Sand Hill Cemetary is just across the state
line, the cemetary is divided by the state line.

Her father was James Sellers, b. July 1, 1846 - d. 1937.  His parents were
George & Mary Robinson all of Waynesburg Pa.

James brothers were Asa b. Nov. 17, 1852 - d. Dec. 24, 1921, wives Jane
Phillips and Mary Jones.. and Lindsey (no info).

Mary's mother was Rebecca Douston.  Her parents were David Douston & Sarah
Brown 1824-1904.  Sarah also married J.V. Morris, and there were 4 more

Rebecca's first husband was John Lightner, b. 1840 d. 1915,  and she was
3rd wife and must have been young as he died leaving her with a young son,
William Arliss.

James & Mary also had C. Russell, Harry Milford and Sadie.

And that's all for the moment.  With the new timelines on the Eddleman
I just waiting to find the next generation or two and connecting with an
established family line.

TIA for any info on the Sellers family!
