             Rachel Sellers/Sollers/Solies - NJ?>PA>NY>MI
 
        From:
             "Lynn E. Garn" <garnl@erols.com>
 

I am searching for the parents of Rachel Sellers or Sollers or Solies, born 1807 - 1813, probably in PA or NJ. I have
conflicting spellings of her last name.
 
She married Benjamin STEWART/STUART who was born about 1813-1814, probably in NJ. They lived in PA
until shortly before the 1850 census. They lived in Erwin Twp., Steuben Co, NY in 1850 census and moved to
Chester Twp., Ottawa Co., MI, before 1860.
 
They had the following children, surname STEWART:
1. Sarah Ophelia, born in PA about 1840 - from 1850 census. She married (1) James Gillhespy and (2) Henry J.
Hillard.
2. Alexander H., born in PA May 1841 - from 1900 census. He married Catherine (?) from Tennessee.
3. James K., born in PA about 1845 - from census. Married several times including Nancy Rogers including Gusti
or Gusta Westphal.
4. Andrew J. born Sept 1847 in PA  - from census. Married Louise Victor.
5. Cordelia, born 27 Sept 1849 in PA - from census. Married Benjamin Hillard.
6. Charles Ewells, Born 6 April 1851 or 1853, Steuben Co., NY - from family records. Married Mary Elizabeth
Hillard.
7. Mary Jane, born ca. 1854-55 in NY - from census. Married (1) Johathan Housler (2) William Davenport and (3)
Charles DeShane. 


LYNN, do you know what county in PA they came from or where Married?

SELLERS from PA in 1850 NY=
Samuel SELLERS 38 PA

James SELLERS 42 ENG,
wife and kids all born PA

These children sure look close to Abraham SELLERS of Adams Co, Pa - not
proven ,
We also have a couple members working on MI also,
Any Civil War records ?
perhaps, we can all share some info and help each other. marie, iowa 



Thanks for responding to my query. Unfortunately I do not know which county
in PA they were in. Census records indicate they were in PA until just
before the 1850 census. Census records suggest Benjamin Stewart & Rachel
were born in New Jersey. I do know that a Benjamin Stewart appears in the
1840 census of Westmorland Co, Mercer Co, Crawford Co. and Beaver Co. Also,
a Benjamin Steward appears in Franklin and Chester Counties, PA.

Thanks,
Lynn
