(In my e-mail address the "l" in lrohrs is the letter l.  The "1" in k12 is
the number 1)
    I am new to this group and have so thoroughly enjoyed reading your
messages.  The SELLERS line of my family is my newest research project and
the line I know least about.  I have met some wonderful "cousins" doing
genealogy on the Internet.  I know there must be some long, lost Sellers
cousins out there.  Then again, perhaps I'm the long, lost cousin.

Here is what I know about my Sellers line:

ELIZABETH SELLERS SALISBURY was my great-grandmother.

In the 1860 U.S. Census, she and her family are living in Chester Township,
Morrow County, OH, Post Office--Chesterville.  The head of household is
Ephraim Salisbury, farmer, age 24, ELIZABETH S. (26) and son Elzie (1).
ELIZABETH was born in PA.

So--ELIZABETH SELLERS was born in 1836 or 1837.

In the 1870 U.S. Census, the family is still living in OH.  South
Bloomfield Township, Morrow County, OH, Post Office--Sparta.  Ephraim and
ELIZABETH have the following children: Elzy B. (11), Hannah (9), William
(8), Sarah (7), Dinah (4).  My grandmother, Mary Minerva has not yet been
born.  Ephraim Salisbury's real estate is valued at $9240 and personal
estate at $1250.  I'll make a comment about the real estate later.

The plot thickens [and this is what I do so love about genealogy].

Living on the next farm in Morrow County, OH--and I think this is her
father--but it could be an uncle, are:

CHRISTIAN SELLERS (70), Sarah (60), Mariah (33), Mary (25), John (24), and
Jessie (20) [Jessie is female]  All are born in PA just like ELIZABETH
SELLERS.  Christian Seller's real estate is valued at $9600 and personal
estate at $1025.

In the 1880 U.S. Census, Ephraim Salisbury and ELIZABETH have moved to
Jackson Township, Gentry County, MO [King City, MO]  This is where the real
estate becomes very interesting to me.  Why does a family that is
apparently well-fixed move from Ohio to Missouri?  All of the children are
10 years older and my granmother is in the picture now.  Mary Minerva is 8
years old.  ELIZABETH says that both her mother and father were born in PA.

And apparently, not only did Ephraim and ELIZABETH move to Missouri but
also at least two of ELIZABETH'S brothers.  In the Gentry County, Missouri
Deaths 1868-1910 is this report: "Salisbury, Mrs. E.W. [this is ELIZABETH];
d. 1 Apr 1891 at home in King City; sister of GEORGE SELLERS and CHRIS
SELLERS."  In this same report are the two brothers: "SELLERS, CHRISTIAN,
d. 13 Apr 1899; age 60 yr 10 mo 3 da; born 9 Jun 1839 in *****Greene County
PA*****; 1862 Union Army; m. Mary Orendoff; bur. Highland Cem."  and the
the other brother "SELLERS, GEORGE; d. 26 Oct 1895; leaves wife and 1
child; bur. Highland Cem.

I did find out some more information from from an obituary of one of
ELIZABETH'S and Ephraim's daughters:  "Mrs. Hannah Etta Vanderveer was born
at Sparta, Morrow County, Ohio, on June 23, 1860,........With her parents
she came to Gentry Count, Mo., March 25th, 1873..........The following
relatives and friends from a distance were here to attend the
funeral....Mrs. J.W. Moon [sister, Sarah], Wichita, Kansas; Mrs. F.D.
Eggleston and son, Donald, of Kingman, Kans. [that's Mary Minerva and my
father, Donald Edwin Eggleston], Mr. and Mrs. GEO. SELLERS, and Mrs.
VICTORIA SELLERS of Albany [MO].

All of Ephraim's and ELIZABETH'S children went to college--even the
girs--which was unusual back then.  Apparently, the family moved to
Emporia, Kansas, for a time so that the children could go to college there
and then came back to King City, MO.  It was in Emporia, KS, that my
grandfather and grandmother met and eventually married.  Mary Minerva was
able to purchase a beautiful home in Kingman, KS, with her inheritance from
her father.

I think I would know more about the SELLERS line of my family had not my
grandmother died when my father was 19 years old.  My sister and I were not
born until my father was 35 and 38 years old.  He evidently did not keep in
contact with his SELLERS cousins.

Thank you for reading my SELLERS story.  Any help would be appreciated. I
do have some wonderful photographs of Mary Minerva, her sisters and
brothers that I would copy and share.

   Sellers mail is splendid!  I never dreamed when I requested help in finding
information about ELIZABETH SELLERS that I would find help so quickly.  Now
I need to find out who the parents of CHRISTIAN SELLERS (below) are.
Perhaps somebody can help me with this.

Here is what I now know:

Thank you to whoever put the 1850 Greene County PA, Center Township, Census
on the Sellers Greene County PA page--and whoever put the 1870 Morrow
County OH Census on the Sellers Morrow County OH page that has the birthday
and marriage date of Elizabeth Sellers.  I hope the following Sellers
family line will be useful to someone doing Sellers research.

SELLERS, CHRISTIAN (b.1800 in PA)
      m. SARAH ???? (b.1807 in PA)
   Children:
       GEORGE b. 1834 in PA d. Oct. 26, 1895 in King City, Gentry County,

child)

lived in Pharr, TX--March 1922)
     SARAH MOIRA  b. 1865 in OH  m. J.W. Moon.  (He had a son from a
previous marriage, I.D. Moon who was very close to my father and his
family.  I was named after this aunt--and you are thinking how does Sarah
Moira fit into Lucinda.  Actually, my first name is Sara).

Macon County MO d. June 24, 1984 in Macon, Macon County MO) on July 23,
1932 in Sulpher, OK.  And just an added genealogy tidbit here: Mary Ethyl
Sagaser was the daughter of Charles Henry Sagaser and Susan Amanda Rector
Sagaser.  Charles Sagaser's grandmother, Elizabeth Slater Sagaser,
descended from John Slater who came with Rochambeau's forces from France to
help George Washington in the Revolutionary War.  He witnessed the
surrender of Cornwallis.  He also witnessed the framing and signing of the
U.S. Constitution.  He decided to remain in America after the War and lived
in Butler County PA.  Susan Amanda Rector Sagaser descended from the 1714
John Jacob Richter (Rector) who came from Siegen, Germany and lived in the
first Germanna Colony in Virginia.

        JOSEPH RAYMOND EGGLESTON--still living

        MARY ELIZABETH EGGLESTON (FILLO)--still living



Need help with the parents/grandparents/etc. of Christian Sellers.

Here is the information I already have.

I don't know whether or not my Sellers line, with a number of George
Sellerses, is your line or not.  But, just in case it is, here is the family
information I have.  Since you listed a Christian Sellers, I thought perhaps
we have a connection.

>From "History of Gentry and Worth Counties [Missouri], 1882--

CHRIS. SELLERS

the son of Chris. and Susan Sellers, was born in Greene County,
Pennsylvania, June 9, 1839, and lived there until he reached his tenth year,
when in the spring of 1849, his parents removed to Morrow County, Ohio. Here
he was reared and educated, attending the school at Sparta. Enlisting in the
Union Army in July, 1862, he served for about three years in Company L, One
Hundred and Twenty-First Ohio Volunteer Infantry. His regiment was in some
of the hottest engagements of the war, and he was present at the battles of
Perryville, Lookout Mountain, Mission Ridge, and others. He also
participated in the capture of Atlanta, and was with Sherman in his famous
march to the sea. Thence he went northward to Washington, taking part in the
grand review, and was discharged at Columbus, Ohio, in the summer of 1865.
Returning home, Mr. Sellers remained till the following spring, when he
emigrated to Gentry County, Missouri, and engaged in teaching for several
years, finally purchasing the farm and settling where he now resides, in
section 13. He owns 205 acres of land, with good house, orchard, barn, etc.
He is a self made man, having amassed a comfortable little fortune, and at
the same time gained an enviable reputation for honesty and integrity. [The
Susan Sellers, his mother, must be the first wife of Christian Sellers,
Susannah Fry. The second wife is Sarah Braddock].

[This article helps to explain why Ephraim Salisbury and wife Elizabeth S.
Sellers went to Gentry County, Missouri. Her brother was already there].
 

Children of CHRISTIAN SELLERS and SARAH BRADDOCK are: [Not documented--I
have not proven which children belonged to Susannah Fry and which to Sarah
Braddock--though the age difference of the children leads to this
conclusion].

Notes for EPHRIAM W. SALISBURY:

>From "History of Gentry and Worth Counties, [Missouri] 1882--

EPHRAIM W. SALISBURY

farmer and stock dealer, was born in Delaware (now Morrow) County, Ohio,
March 2, 1836. Ira Salisbury, his father, was born in Rhode Island, but was
raised in Ohio, and his mother, whose maiden name was Hannah James, was also
from Ohio. The subject of this sketch was raised on a farm in Morrow County,
and was educated in the common schools. He was there married, November 22,
1857, to Miss Elizabeth S. Fellows [Sellers], daughter of Christian Fellows
[Sellers]. She was born in Greene County, Pennsylvania, August 23, 1835.
After his marriage he settled on a farm in Morrow County, where he resided
until the spring of 1873, when he moved to Missouri. He located on his
present farm in the spring of 1874, and is the owner of 314 acres of land,
with 300 acres fenced, a good house and improvements, and a fine orchard of
400 bearing apple trees, and a nice variety of other fruits. He resides on
section 21, township 61, range 32. Mr. and Mrs. Salisbury have six children:
Elzy B., born February 13, 1859; Hannah E. (wife of John Vanderveer), born
June 23, 1860; William S., born March 19, 1862; Sarah M., born November 4,
1863; Dina M., born September 28, 1865, and Mary M., born May 8, 1872. [Too
bad they have Elizabeth S. Sellers name incorrectly].

It is interesting to note that in the 1870 Census in South Township, Morrow
County, Ohio--Post Office, Sparta, that Ephriam Salisbury has real estate
valued at $9200 and a personal estate at $1250. That was a lot of money back
then. Perhaps it was unusual for a family with this much money to move west.
636 N. Spruce St., Kingman, Kansas, was purchased by Mary Minerva Salisbury
Eggleston with her inheritance. Look at the obituaries of both Hannah Etta
Salisbury and Mary Minerva Salisbury. It appears that Ephriam brought his
family to King City, Mo., in 1873. [Mary Minerva was born in 1872]

Burials in the King City cemetery are listed as follows:

Salsbury, Amelia--1849--1895 [Wife of Ennis/Emness]

Salsbury, Elizabeth--1835-1891 [Wife of E.W. Salisbury, mother of Mary
Minerva Salisbury

maiden name Sellers; sister of Christian and George]

Salsbury, Ella--1854-1913

MRS. F.D. EGGLESTON PASSED AWAY SATURDAY

Death came Saturday to end the long sickness of Mrs. Frank D. Eggleston, who
had been afflicted seriously for more than a year with pernicious anemia.
She was unconscious for two days before the spirit fled. Funeral services
were held at the Methodist church, of which Mrs. Eggleston was a member, on
Monday, March 27 and burial was in Walnut Hill cemetery.

Mrs. Egglestoon was one of the leading women of the city of Kingman in club
work and in public life. She took a deep interest in school work and served
the district as a member of the Board of Education for one term. Her failing
health forced her to give up her active work along those lines but she
always held the welfare of the schools and the city close to her heart.

Mrs. Eggleston was the mother of three children--two of the finest boys in
the city and a splendid little daughter, who is just entering her first year
of school. Donald, the older boy, is a student in the freshman year at
Southwestern University, Raymond the younger is in Kingman High School. The
children show the fine training only an ideal mother can give.

For several years Mrs. Eggleston was in bad health but her condition was not
recognized as pernicious anemia until about a year ago. Since that time she
had spent many days in a Wichita hospital taking treatment. The disease has
no cure, so far as is known at the present time. However, there have been
cases in which the transfusion of blood from one person to another suffering
from anemia, has caused the blood of the sufferer to become healthy again.
Mrs. Eggleston had undergone several transfusions and although they were
helpful at times, it was soon learned that no permanent benefit would
result.

For the past six weeks she has been at her home in Kingman with the
knowledge that nothing could be done to postpone the near approach of death,
yet she waited for the end calmly and with that spirit of assurance of the
world to come that only the pure in heart can have. The end was near, she
knew, but she was ready.

Mrs. Eggleston was born in Sparta, Ohio, May 8, 1872. Her maiden name was
Mary Minerva Salisbury. From Ohio she moved with her parents to Missouri
while she was a little girl, and the family lived on a farm there for sor???
[can't read this word] years. The family moved to Emporia, Kansas, along in
the early '90s in order to give the advantages of a college education to the
four children, two girls and two boys.

Mrs. Eggleston attended the state normal school at Emporia, and it was there
she met Frank Eggleston, her now bereaved husband, whose home was then at
Larned but who was attending college at Emporia, also

Their friendship ripened into courtship, and when Mr. Eggleston came to
Kingman and entered the drug business he prepared a home and returned to
Emporia where the couple was married on June 16, 1898.

Immediately upon her arrival in Kingman, Mrs. Eggleston became identified
with the leading social and women' club life of the city. She became a
member of the two women's clubs, the Nineteenth Century and the Shakespeare,
and was a leader in both when her health permitted. She was elected a member
of the school board in 1917 and served the three year term.

Donald, the oldest boy, was born in July 1902, Raymond in 1908, and Mary
Elizabeth in 1916. As stated before, the two boys are young gentlemen,
p;opular and well liked among their friends and the kind that any mother or
father may well be proud of, true to the teachings of ideal home life and a
wonderful mother.

Before her sickness, Mrs. Eggleston was an active member of Della chapter of
the Order of the Eastern Star and was a regular attendant at the meetings.

She will be greatly missed in club, social and church circles and in the
splendid home.

She is survived by her husband, children and two sisters and two brothers.

The Leader-Courier joins the many other Kingman friends in sympathy to the
motherless children and the husband.

Death Ends Illness of Mrs. F.D. Eggleston

______________________________

Passed Away Saturday After Two Years' Battle for Life--Last

Conscious Thoughts were for Others

______________________________

Death relieved Mrs. F.D. Eggleston Saturday after two years of intermittent
suffering with anemia, during which everything so far known to the medical
profession about this liffle-understood ailment had been tried in vain. The
funeral services were held at the home Monday afternoon by Rev. W.R. Johnson
of the Methodist church, and burial made in the family lot at Walnut Hill.
With her passing Kingman loses a citizen who for twenty two year has been
one of its outstanding advocates of civic progress, a helpful and
influential worker in every line she undertook.

Mary Minerva Salisbury was born in Sparta, Ohio, on the 8th of May, 1872.
The family moved from Ohio to Gentry County, Mo., when she was ten months
old [cant' read next few words] ...she grew to young womanhood. In 1889 they
removed to Emporia, Kans., where she conpleted her education in the state
normal school, and where she was united in marriage June 16, 1898, to Frank
D. Eggleston of Kingman. To their union three children were born; Donald,
aged 19, now a fresheman at Fairmount college, Raymond, aged 15, a freshman
in the Kingman high school, and Mary Elizabeth, aged 6, just beginning her
education. Surviving her besides her husband and children are two sisters,
Mrs. J.W. Moon of Fort Scott, Kans., and Mrs. B.A. Johnson of Chicago, Ill.,
and two brothers, William Salisbury of Pharr, Texas, and Robert Salisbury of
St. Joseph, Mo.

Life to her, however, was more than just a passing of days and years. With
her own model home for a background, she went forth into the activities of
the community, and gave to them the benefits of her education and energy;
was a helpful member of the women's clubs, of the church societies, of the
order of the Eastern Star, and the board of education, a woman of
intelligence and ideals, whose influence was always in the same direction.
Her pastor, voicing the sentiment of many friends assembled for the final
tribute, said that he had known her as a woman of extraordinary Christian
faith--and as such all those who knew her best will remember her. If, in the
course of her long illness, if she ever lost hope at all, she never let it
be known to her little family. She wanted very much to remain with them, to
see her sons grow to maturity and enter safely on their life work, her
little daughter come into womanhood under her own watchful care, and she
clung to life for this, rather than for herself alone. Even in her last days
she spoke of plans ahead as though she fully meant and expected to see their
fulfillment. Wednesday, however, came the final relapse and the last two
days were spent in semi-comsciousness during which she did not speak again.
Saturday afternoon she quietly fell asleep for the last time.

The funeral service was as she would have wished it--simple and sincere, a
message to the living, the friends and loved ones she left behind, rather
than any extended reference to her own virtues. The house and lawn were
crowded with those who had come to pay the final tribute. To them all it
seemed that in her pastor's prayer and heartening message she herself was
speaking to them in words made eloquent by her untimely passing.
