This is a court record mentioning Rebekah Sellers, widow of Isaac. I've
also inluded the War of 1812 record of her son Jonathan Sellers. I saw a
letter in the Indiana State Library stating that Jonathan's wife
received a pension for his service in 1820. The National Archives
doesn't have any record and the Library at Frankfort, Kentucky doesn't
have a record. Is there any other place to look?

A. SELLARS, miller, P. O. Antioch Mills, is a native of Harrison
and son of John and Lucinda (Craig) Sellars. He is descended from a
family who traces their genealogy back to the early settlement of Harrison
County. His father was a native of the county, born in 1835; spent his
life at farming and died in 1864. Our subject was born in 1850; received
his education and assisted his father while he remained a resident of the
old home. In 1871 he left home and began as salesman in a dry goods
store. In 1875, he was married to Miss Katie Jones, who has borne him
two children. About this date he also engaged in business on his own
account, by purchasing a partnership with his old employer, Mr. E. W.
Martin. In 1876, he bought a flouring mill and ran the same until 1878,
when it was destroyed by fire. He then bought his partner's interest in
the mercantile business, and has since conducted it along. He is an
enterprising, energetic young man, and is following in the footsteps of
the wealthiest men of Harrison County, viz: depending upon his own
industry, economy and good financiering to accumulate a fortune, and
establish a good business.

30th July 1823
Inclosed are the papers of an old Revolutionary Soldier, who has been engaged nearly as long as the War of the Revolution lasted, is edeavering to comply with the regulations of your department, some of which are overly nice and i---atious: However do not misunderstand; I would not insiuate that you are not exclusively operated upon by a regard to the public interest -- Your directions have, at length, been substantually complied with. You have the depositions of Woods and Finley to prove the Services. The Justice has not certified Majr Finley to be a credible witness, will you permit me to refer you to some of the Revolutionary Officers of the department, I have thought they know him where: [illegible] that he is a man of high and unblemished reputation. Whilst I had the honor to be a member of Congress, this old man's papers were first forwarded; and according to the best of my recollection his declaration was made as stated by Judge Trimble. In the papers there is a Cert. of the Judge as to the value of his property; and I cannot perceive the necessity of [illegible]. He gives the value of an old Powder horn and knife at $1 and I should not suppose them worth more; as to the $100 it speaks for itself, and any Certificate of its value would be [illegible] - To my certain knowledge this old soldier is needy, and the County of his country will never reach him, except he obtains it soon; I hope that you will find the requisitions of the casecomplied with in such manner as to authorize the allowance of his pension from his first declaration; this is a real case.

Ellis' company joined Major Martin D. Hardin's Battallion and Col. John Allen's Regiment in Georgetown Kentucky and from thence we marched to the Ohio River and crossed the river and marched through the state of Ohio and on our way we joined General Winchester. At camp No. 3, Capt Ellis died and Richard Matson succeeded him in the command of the company.
On the 18th of January 1813 we had a battle with the British and Indians near the River Raisin in the then Michigan Territory and on the 22nd day of the same month we had another battle with the British and Indians near the same place in which I was severly wounded in the left shoulder by a musket ball. On the same day we were taken prisoners by the enemy and were marched to malden and from there to Fort George where we were set at liberty and permitted to go home.
On the day of the battle in which I was wounded General Winchester was the commanding general, Col. John Allen commanded our Regiment, Major Madison commanded our battallion, Richard Matson was our Captain, Francis Chinn was our Lieutenant and Thomas Chinn was our Ensign. Col. Allen and Lieutenant Chinn were both killed in the Battle of the 22nd of January. General Winchester, Major Madison, and Martin D. Hardin are all dead. Capt. Matson has removed to the state of Missouri and Ensign Chinn has removed to the state of Louisiana.
I served out my tour of six months and was regularly discharged by Major Martin D. Hardin as will be seen by my discharge which is herewith enclosed. Major Peter Dudley of Frankfort (Ky) was the last paymaster that paid me my wages. I have not received any pension from government and my name is not on any pension roll. Given under my hand this 5th day of January, 1839.
