Your note to Fred Sellers has been forwarded to me as I am Fred's neighbor.
My GGF was from Luxembourg, Nicholas Kirch, came over around 1800.  Name
spelling was changed to Kersh.  Don't know if any of family came over before
that.
He and his brother,  Johannes, was separated at arrival, never to be heard
from again.
Guy Kersh.

Interesting,
There is a   Mathias Kersh  in my family history.
We may have to check further.

FROM MikeAmber [mikeamber@lvcm.com]
I can help out on this a little bit.

Elizabeth SELLERS was the daughter of Adam and Barbara (Teeter) Sellers and
the granddaughter of Heinrich and Anna Maria Zeller.
She was born March 15, 1776 in Rockingham County, near Elkton.  She was
baptized at the Peaked Mountain Church on October 8, 1776.  Her Uncle and
Aunt, Johannes and Elizabeth (Pirkey) Sellers, were the sponsors at her
baptism.  She died April 27, 1862 and is buried at Brown Memorial United
Church of Christ in McGaheysville, VA.
She married her first husband, John Jacob CASH, May 1, 1796 in Rockingham
County.  Kersh was probably his original name, however, he was listed as
"Jacob Cash" when they were married.
Elizabeth married a 2nd time to Matthias Snyder, and she carried the Snyder
name to her grave.  Her gravestone reads "Elizabeth Snyder".  I have a .jpg
file photo of the gravestone.
As to what happened to Jacob Cash/Kersh, I don't have a clue at this point.
I don't have a record of their children, if any, either.
Likewise, I have no record of any children between her and Matthias Snyder
nor do I have a marriage date for them.

Hopefully, what little info I have about Elizabeth and her immediate family
will help the search.  Elizabeth's father, Adam Sellers, was my 5th Great
Grandfather so I've been researching that part of the Sellers family as
well.  I just haven't gotten anything in-depth so far as to any offspring of
Elizabeth and Jacob Cash/Kersh nor of Elizabeth and Matthias Snyder.

Don't know if this helps or not but perhaps the info will have some value.

4 Kersh are buried at St. Michael's Church Cemetery, located on Route 837 in Rockingham County, which is now called St. Michael's United Church of Christ.

Jacob L. Kersh - born June 3, 1793; died January 20, 1837

Susanna Kersh, wife of Jacob L. Kersh - born October 6, 1796; died ? (the gravestone has sunk enough into the ground as to cover the death date).

Amanda K., wife of John Smith, daughter of Jacob and Susan Kersh.  Born December 3, 1826; died April 27, 1869.

Adam Kersh - born November 16, 1828; died March 22, 1905.

I have no idea if they are any relation to Jacob and Elizabeth (Sellers) Kersh but its certainly possible.

Additionally, the following information comes from the Library of Virginia, Virginia Land Office Patents & Grants records concerning "KERSH":

August 3, 1771 - Land Grants
Mathias Kersh - 180 acres between Peaked Mountain and Shenandoah River.

October 9, 1805 - Land Grants
Jacob Kersh - 6 acres adjoining his own land and Moungers land in Rockingham County.

October 9, 1805 - Land Grants
Jacob Kersh - 2 3/4 acres adjoining Mungers land in Rappahannock County (Extinct).  This land was probably in then-Rappahannock County before the boundaries changed and it became Rockingham County land.

October 9, 1805 - Land Grants
Jacob Kersh - 11 acres adjoining land of Mathias Kersh and Haines land in Rockingham County.

June 27, 1829 - Land Grants
Jacob Kersh - 1 acre 2r. 4po. his portion of the land surveyed for himself and Jacob Pletcher, etc. in Augusta County

July 30, 1841 - Land Grants
Mathias Kersh, JR. - 1 acres 36p. near Quails Run in Rockingham County.

It appears to me that the Jacob Kersh listed in the 1805 Land Grants is the son of Mathias Kersh and husband of Elizabeth Sellers.
The Jacob Kersh listed in the 1829 Land Grant is probably Jacob L. Kersh, possible son of Jacob Kersh and grandson of Mathias Kersh.
And, the Mathias Kersh, JR listed in the 1841 Land Grant is the son of Mathias Kersh, SR and brother to Jacob Kersh, husband of Elizabeth Sellers.

Hope the info helps ...

Michael Sellers

  Thanks for passing along the information.  I don't subscribe to the
Sellers mail list, so I would have missed it. Thank Michael for me too.

  The marriage date of 1/4/1796 that I have for Elizabeth Sellers and John
Jacob Kersh came from a now deceased uncle, but he showed his source as
Rockingham County Marriage Records, Book A, p. 657.  He also had a marriage
date of 2/2/1823 for Elizabeth and Mathias Snyder from the same records, but
didn't give a book or page number.

  I would guess that John Jacob is probably buried at the old Cash (Kersh)
Cemetery at the edge of Shenandoah Valley Airport in Augusta County.  His
father, Mathias, and brother, Johan George, are also supposed to be buried
there.  There are no headstones, just a tangle of trees surrounded by an
iron fence, but it lies within the airport property.  Johan George is my
gggg grandfather.

  I have been trying to track down descendants from this Kersh line, but
there are not too many , because many Kershes did not marry.  If you ever
come across any descendants from this couple, please let me know.

SEPT 10, 2002
I checked the census reports today.  The 1810 census of Jacob Kersh shows 00001-00010.  This appears to be Jacob and Elizabeth with no children.  The 1820 census of Elizabeth Cash shows 000000-10001.  This appears to be Elizabeth and a daughter under age 10.  I don't see any other male Cash/Kersh in the census reports which I can't account for.

Johan George mentions in his will that he inherited land from his brother, Jacob, indicating Jacob may not have had any sons to inherit his land.  I have not seen a copy of Jacob's will.

So it looks like Jacob and and Elizabeth may have had one daughter and no sons. Thanks for all your help.

Here's an interesting ironic twist to the Kersh and Sellers searches ....
As we've been discussing,
Elizabeth Sellers, daughter of Adam Sellers,
married Jacob Kersh, son of Matthias Kersh, on May 1, 1796.
This was Elizabeth's first marriage.
Her 2nd marriage was in 1823 to Matthias Snyder.
And now for the ironic twist.
According to the Peaked Mountain Church
records, the sponsor of John Mathias Snyder's baptism on January 26, 1793
was .... Mathias Kersh.
I found this to be really interesting....
