This is what I have on the Sellers Campbell Deed.

1794 - Nathan SELLERS sold land to Mary CAMPBELL, widow of James CAMPBELL.
Deed mentions the lands "adjoining that of Nathan SELLERS" and being part
of the Huskins settlement on Huskins Run. A map of the original Huskin
settlement is at:

http://www.shawhan.com/map.htm

I don't have the complete record or reference, its in Deed Book A of the
Bourbon County Records (1794), page 435, I think. This land is on the
Bourbon/Harrison County line. This Nathan Sellers was born in Lurgan Twp.,
Cumberland County, PA or at least his father, Nathaniel, was living in that
township at the time of his birth. The land was originally settled by
William Huskins who was with John Sellers, Nathan's cousin, and John Hinkson in
Kentucky around1775 and 1776.

Jim Sellars


The John SELLERS in Woodford county has children marrying in
1799, Woodford Co !
Where were his  kids born? not Bourbon Co, was it? = Do we have Another Younger John Sellers in Woodford Co?  that had kids born in --? co and went to Woodford? msh

     The film is available for sale.  LDS # is 183092
Had time to find the following entries (and have abbreviated same):
p. 35, March 1787.
An indenture (land sale) of Enos McDonald +     (born before 1766,msh)
Sidney his wife to William
Buchner (possibly Bucket, but I think Buchner).
(Notes: Wife is Sidney.  There is at least one other Sidney.  From
memory, she was dau of
Francis McDaniel, probable son of Enos, and she married a Howard. A
William Buchner or
Buckner was executor of Leonard Sellers 1823 will.)
     Next entry for Enos, Apr. 1787,  shows him doing Jury duty.
Page not noted.
P. 144.  James Lowry + wife against John McDanell.  (Lowry also filed
against John Smiley.
Both suits were dismissed.)  Date not noted but bef. 1790.
(Note: You show the following Bourbon Co marriage: Mary Sellers
married Andrew Lowry 14
March 1799. Does anyone know whose daughter she was?)
     Next found two suits (both 1790, I think) against John McDonald.
 One was brought by David
McCash and was dismissed.  David paid John Ryland for six days
testimony.  John paid Rachel
McDonald for 1 day of testimony.  Next suit was brought by William
Archer.  Did not have time

Subject:  WILLIAM BODKIN 1801 - Kentucky
 

We are fortunate to have a recorded incident which sheds light on the
character and person of John Shawhan. John was a member of the Stonermouth
Presbyterian church in nearby Ruddle's Mill, Kentucky. Beginning on August 3,
1801, the Rev. Barton Stone, an Anglican priest, began a week of preaching
that became known as the "Great Revival" at the Cane Ridge Meeting House,
just east of present day Paris, Kentucky. John and four other men: WILLIAM
BODKIN, John Brown, Nathan Sellers,n Colonel James Smith o attended the
revival.

We read these words from a Bourbon County, Kentucky, historian:

"John Shawhan was a large man with a tendency to be blonde; his personality
such that he had followers of uncommon intelligence. He was a member of the
Older Stoner Mouth Presbyterian Church and was one of the five men denounced
from the pulpit by their pastor, Rev. Samuel Reynolds, for attending the
revival of the Rev. Barton Stone at Cane Ridge in 1801 when the Christian
Church was formed. A camp meeting was afterward held on John Shawhan's farm
about 1818, and from the converts of that camp the present Mt. Carmel Church
was formed." p

o James Sellars e-mail correspondence, June 1998. This COL James Smith was
very well known in the annals of early Pennsylvania and Kentucky history.
James Fenimore Cooper's character "Hawkeye" from the novel The Last of the
Mohicans may have been inspired by the exploits of this famous woodsman.
Smith wrote an account of his life among the Indians in his "An Account of
the Remarkable Occurances in the Life and Travels of Col. James Smith."
