I know we are same family with Joshua, Mary Magdeline,
and ninth son David Sellers. I've been
searching and found Joshua's brother Jeremiah and wife Elizabeth and burial info.
Ii sent for death certiificate from Dauphin Co.and they found
Jeremiah's that lists his wife as
Susanna(maybe married twiice??) and his parents as Philip and Margaret. They have dates as born: Sept
24,1794 and died July 3, 1853. I don't have Joshua's. Do you?
I have aa book of Sellers' with many Philip's but can't find
right one yet. Do you have any more
We belong to Sellers from Pa, Cumberland and Dauphin Co starting about late
1700's/ Joshua( 1797), Jeremiah(1799), Manasse( 1804), Rosenia(1798), and
three older one. born 1783,1788, and 1790.
Joshua married Mary Magdalene Brenner, Jeremiah married first Elizabeth
Bowman, then after she died married Susanna Deckard, about one year before he died.

I hear you have sellers information
I am looking for parents of Joshua Sellers who I 'm prettty confident are Philip and Margaret Sellers. Joshua married Mary Magdalene Brenner and lived in Upper Dickinson, Twp cumberland, Co, Pa all his life. I have all the children: Daniel born 1818; Samuel born 1820; Margaret born 1821; Jacob Stough born 1823; John born 1826; Henry Miller born 1828; Catharine Ann born 1830; William born 1833 and my line is David born 1836
Looking for parents who had dthese children: Unknown Sellers born 2-20-1783; Unknown Sellers born 2-11-1788 ; Unkown Sellers born 12-18-1790(possibly Leah); Joshua( our line) born 6-26-1797; Rosenia Sellers born 4-2-1798; Jeremiah Sellers born 9-24-1799( I found him); and Manasse Selllers born 9-4-1804
I think they were German and from Cumberland or Dauphin Co, Pa- I found Jeremiah in Derry Twp, Dauphin Co, Pa.
Any information or leads would be appreciated.
Thank you. Linda Sellers, Belvidere, Illinois
LINDA, thanks for staying in here.
WHO is the PHILIP SELLERS you think he connects to = date, places, any documents? living close?
Joshua lived in 1840 in Dickinson Twn, which was made in 1785? from Lancaster
Co, Pa. land?
Can we trace LAND records to a SELLERS family?
where is he in 1820.30?
I am not sure we have ALL census posted!
Did you check 1812 war records?
1790 , 1800, 1810 census records he would be living with parents? and sometimes we must trace/prove each family to prove the kids!
Were any of his kids in Civil War ? = might prove exact birth place.
Show us where you are and see if our SELLERS can help, etc.
thnaks for replyingmarie
you are prompt to reply
Philip the parent was listed on Jeremaih's death certificate that I just happened to find in a search. Philip and Margaret were parents listed and in the Sellers family bible names and some BD are listed but not all names, most birthdates though. so I know Jeremiah waa Joshua's brother as all dates match
How do I get ahold of land records?
LINDA, I would go to usgenweb/PA/Dauphin and ask for a look up or question.
WE need more documents on this county, altho in could be in another county, as land changed.
Is this Phillip in 1820 and Margaret in 1830? did she die or move?
I am hoping some of our SELLERS members in this area can help. They will if they see enough info.
thanks. marie, iowa
