Hi Louis,

I have your Felix Perry Sellers in my database. Please contact me so we can
exchange information. I'm compiling Sellers information for a future book
on
the all the descendants of Nathaniel and Samuel Sellers. My death date
differs from yours, but I can't verify mine, I think its from the LDS
website. According to yours he would be over 100 years old. This is how he
fits in:

1. Nathaniel Sellers (d. abt 1795)
2. William Sellers (1771-1848) m. Sarah Crawford (1778-1855)
3. Nathan Douglas Sellers (1797-1879) m. Susanna Hawk (1802-1879)
4. Felix Perry Sellers (1824-1905) m. Mary Magdalean Tillman (1833-1925)
5. Isadora Lutitia Sellers (1857-1924) m. Leander Pottenger (only child I
have)

This family probably started in Northern Ireland to Cumberland County, PA
before 1748 then to Kentucky in 1780 to Preble County, OH about 1807 then
to
Indiana. I have Felix being born in Preble Co., Oh and dying in Manchester,
Koscuisko Co., IN. Looking forward to exchanging information with you.

Jim Sellars



I have a lot of info on the Felix Perry Sellers line, would that help?

Regards,
Louis



LOUIS, Yes, Felix Perry Sellers and his kids, who they married and went,
would help our SELLERS members.
This will let Others connected to those children Who may be looking for
the younger Sellers and in the different counties.
Like the Felix I saw in Monroe Co, IN, Is he yours? or someone elses?

WE try and Connect All SELLERS lines And with Members Help, we get closer
and more.
We have several of his kin in Kosciusko Co, IN connected back to Preble
Co, OH and Bracken Co, KY., =
http://www.netins.net/showcase/sellerfamily/indkosci.htm
And we will add your info/email to same

THANKS for sharing, marie, iowa



The line from Pierceton has connections to those  early ones in OH and
KY...

Louis,

Is your Felix Perry Sellers the Felix P. Sellers tabulated in Monroe
Twp, Kosciusko County in the 1860 IN census? If so, is he related to his
neighbor in the same census, Joseph W. Sellers? Both Felix P and Joseph
W appear to have followed the same migration pattern from OH to IN.
Joseph W, born somewhere in OH about 1830, was my gggrandfather. He was
killed in the Civil War in 1862. I have not been successful in proving
the parents of Joseph W, but circumstantial evidence points to the John
and Nancy Sellers tabulated in Clay Twp, Miami County in the 1850 IN
census:
        John Sellers (60, KY)
        Nancy (49, KY)
        Joseph (21, OH)
        Nathan (16, OH)
        Mary (14, OH)
Joseph W Sellers married Elizabeth York in Kosciusko County on 23 Dec
1852. A Mary E Sellers (age 16) married Elizabeth's brother Asa P. York
in Kosciusko County on 20 Jan 1853. A Nathan G Sellers married Susan M
Norris in Kosciusko County on 2 Jul 1854. This appears to be the three
siblings of the John Sellers family, although I have not been able to
find any trace of John or Nancy after the 1850 census. This is further
confirmed by the records of Spring Creek Cemetery in Kosciusko County:
Mary Elizabeth York, wife of A. B., died June 16, 1864, 27-7-2 (implying
a birth date about Nov 14, 1836). One of the adjacent stones was for
Susan Sellers, wife of N. (G.), died Mar 16, 186(2). The stones were
compiled by Lester Binnie in 1971, who reported that they were very hard
to read.

Do you have any data connecting either Joseph W Sellers or John & Nancy
Sellers into your line going back from IN to OH to KY?

I THOUGHT I had seen a FELIX SELLERS on a Monroe Co, IN index?
AND thought perhaps you had checked out or followed up on this census =
And could give info on that SELLERS family =

BUT, I don't see NOW, ? Perhaps , the township was it?
Not my kind of error, But, don't see any Where else,  Now.
ANYWAY, just wanted any possible connection to families, as I don't know Where the name FELIX came from, perhaps the mothers side?

DID you SEND FELIX SELLERS children and who married and went Where?
OUR SELLERS families would Appreciate! Thanks for Sharing Sellers!

from mcphilbrick@hotmail.com

I have compiled quite a bit of information on Nathan Sellers of Preble County, OH. His daughter, Jane, married Henry Duggins, stepson of my ancestor, James Crawford.

 

I also have a little information on James Sellers who married Mary Crawford and William Sellers who married Sarah Crawford.

 

Most of what I have is on Ancestry. It is also on my home page.

 

http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~mcphilbrick/geneal.htm

 

 

===========

Appreciate your work on your web page, the Nathaniel Sellers link is dead as

well as the James and Sally Crawford link. I am of the Nathaniel Sellers

line by the 6th generation. I have a lot of info, and had it as on a ged

file, but had a sudden crash of my pc and lost a lot of info... had a

professional retrieve some of the data, but it is very incomplete. I will

forward your posting to another Seller's cousin who has a lot of later

generations on file. I have pictures of Nathaniel Sellers grandson and great

grandson. I believe my cousin has a tin type or copy of William David

Sellers. Hopefully she will be able to fill in any blanks you may want

filled.

 

Regards,

Louis

LOUIS, thanks for keeping in touch and sharing info.

Our SELLERS would appreciate a copy of these pictures of WILLIAM DAVID
SELLERS. age = ?

Can you or cousin forward?

THANK YOU for sharing SELLERS.
marie, iowa

I was greatly mistaken about the thought that one of my cousins has
a tin type or copy of William David Sellers, there is a very small copy of a
picture of Nathan D Sellers that is in possession of one of my cousins and
in one of my supposedly recoverable files on a cd. I need a special program
to open them up and convert it to something usable. By the way... We are
having a Sellers Reunion one week from today at the Heritage Park Community
Building in Etna Green, IN. next Sunday (Aug 31) afternoon beginning
at 1:00 pm with a carry in meal. We are an ever declining group, but still
meeting consistently for well over 90 yrs. This reunion particularly
represents the Felix Perry/Mary M Tillman-Sellers line through his son
Nathan Hazard Sellers. Perry is the grandson of William David Sellers. All
Sellers are welcome!

"Louis A Diehl" <lad2243@myvine.com>

LOUIS, thanks.

Send if you get it and best wishes on reunion. marie, iowa
