I'm working on identifying Barbara Sellers, wife of the Henry Sellers who
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 about 18
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 County, NC?
 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
"brick walls"

In the late 1760's, Jacob Link and his wife, Barbara (maiden name unknown),
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" so she
obviously remarried.

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!!



FRANK, maybe she would share a copy of the documents of the guardianship papers with dates and places AND the document, date and place that shows BARBARA SELLERS.
Philip SELLERS wife BARBARA FRONEBARGER in 1815 Lincoln Co., NC. Don't think we see her after his death?

and I'm sure you have the LINK info from Rock Co, VA?
HENRY SELLERS 1777/1829 GREENE CO, OH and wife BARBARA LINK d/o DANIEL LINK and wife CATHERINE.
(FRANK SELLERS also shows this marriage W/O documents,msh) But, DoesNot? show his kids?,msh)
Their son MAYBE (maybe this part isn't documented?,msh)  = HENRY 1800 VA/1848 married 1822 Clark Co,Oh BARBARA OHMART, d/o CHRISTIAN OHMART and ANN WEAVER.

ANYONE have any corrections to these postings?

ANYONE have the JOHN HAMMER heirs of 1790 abstracted? includes LINKS
PETER CONRAD'S WILL of 1800  abstracts?=wife MARY EVE, sister of BARBARA (MRS HENRY) SELLERS and  sister CHRISTINA (MRS JOHN) HAMMER
BUT, it looks like we DON'T have copy of DANIEL LINK'S will? altho , they are listed as Heirs of DANIEL LINK, dec'd.

We don't have the documents posted, but, they could be abstracted from ZELLERS/SELLERS book.
DOES ANYONE have them abstracted or typed up?
Thanks for sharing.
