I'm working on identifying Barbara Sellers, wife of the Henry Sellers
died 1829 in Greene Co., OH. They arrived from Rockingham/Hardy Co., VA
about 1817. (Among their children was Henry Sellers who married Barbara
Ohmart.) Recently I've seen a claim that she was Barbara Link, but each time
the statement is made without verification.
Below is a GenForum message to the Sellers forum that was posted
months ago. The Lincoln Co., NC information included may be the source of
the claim that Henry Sellers Sr.'s wife was Barbara Link.
Can we identify the Barbara Link who married a Sellers in Lincoln
I'm having a difficult time with the contention Henry Sellers Sr. of
Rockingham/Hardy Co., VA and Greene Co., OH was her second husband.

Yesterday I renewed my interest in genealogy (I do this several times a
year!) and spent the day at the local (Lincoln Co., NC) library. I found a
few small pieces of info that I was to pursue to try to conquer one of my
In the late 1760's, Jacob Link and his wife, Barbara (maiden name
came to North Carolina from Pennsylvania with their four children -
Frederick, Jacob, John, and Catherine. Sometime in 1769, Jacob died leaving
Barbara a widow with four children. Guardians were appointed for them.
A few years later, Barbara is being referred to as "Barbara Sellers"
In your research have you come across a Sellers who may have been
in the NC
area around that time and married a widow named Barbara? Of course, this may
not have occurred in NC at all, but since her children for the most part
remained here in NC, I just can't imagine she would have traveled far. When
they got older some of her children did go west and ended up in Missouri.
Anything sound remotely familiar?
Thanks for any help!!
and I'm sure you have the LINK info from Rock Co, VA?
