MARY LAWYER O’CONNER PAGE

 

I note that you have been researching the Sellers line - would you have any information to share on couple: Ephraim and Susan Sellers, both born 1824.  In 1850 Census they are in Lancaster PA with three children, and eventually had 8 total. I am tracing my grandmother Mae Sellers line.

 

Thanks for your help!

MARY, did you extract any of the other SELLERS on the 1840 Lancaster Co, Pa

census?

esp looking for son 16  or 20?

would appreciate copies.

 

I only show the Ephraim Sellers 1800/10 you list below living in 1840

Leacock twn.

 

1850 LEACOCK TWN I only see =

Amos E Sellers Leacock, Lancaster, PA abt 1837 Pennsylvania

John Sellers Leacock, Lancaster, PA abt 1830 Pennsylvania

Ann Sellers Leacock, Lancaster, PA abt 1831 Pennsylvania

David Sellers Upper Leacock, Lancaster, PA abt 1828 Pennsylvania

Sarah Zellers Upper Leacock, Lancaster, PA abt 1828 Pennsylvania

did  any of these families fit the 1840 census? OR do we have an Ephraim in

diff county that fits this census = born 1800/1810?

 

 

Your Ephraim (1824) is in 1850  southwest ward Lancaster, did he come from a

Lancaster twn SELLERS?

  Hi Marie-

 

  Here are the Census that I've collected on Sellers down to my grandmother,

Mae Sellers.

 

  In 1840 Census; family of Ephraim Sellers; Leacock Lancaster CO. PA: roll

467, pg. 357,  Ephraim Sellers

   -males 1 who was 10-15; 1who was 20-30; 1who was 30-40;

   -females: 1 who was under 5; 1 who was 10-15; 1 who was 30-40

=

in the 1840 Census - I have only the following:

 

In 1840 Census; family of Ephraim Sellers; Leacock Lancaster CO. PA: roll 467, pg. 357,  Ephraim Sellers
 -males 1 who was 10-15; 1 who was 20-30; 1 who was 30-40;  
 -females: 1 who was under 5; 1 who was 10-15; 1 who was 30-40

 

The search I did was based upon looking for Ephraim Sellers only - these dates don't fit with my Ephraim however - as he was in the 15-20 age range. 

 

 I don't know if he does come from the Leacock Sellers - or next steps to match him with those Leacock folks you list!

 

Thanks for the listing of his  death - I didn't know the dates - just assumed the range. THANKS! 

 

Where did you get access to the mortality index ? valuable resource!

 

Mary

 

MARY, I believe I copied the death from genealogy.com. My old GRS cd's list

the mortalities, ONLY for the year of the census = 1860, etc., but, I can't

copy/paste from them.

 

Yes, it would be a nice resource, if we had them all extracted for Sellers,

etc.

We should try and get these 1840 census for Sellers in Lancaster Co., Pa.

I'll check on line, but, memory = 1810 only?

 

best wishes, marie, iowa

HI again-

 

I have census data for "my" Ephraim Sellers and his family for 1840, 50, 60, 70, 80, 1900.  After 1850, his wife Susan and various children are listed - I assuming he passed on sometime after the birth of thier youngest child, between 1859-60, and prior to the census where he is not listed in 1860. Let me know if you would like any of it.

 

A question about the data you sent me - the 1820 Index of Wills, in which Ephraim is listed "1824, Bk. b vol. 1 pg. 217". Is there more data available from this book on Ephraim?  Would it be the will of his father?  How does one gain access to this data?

 

Mary O'C

==

MARY, Yes, would like the census extractions for Ephraim 1824 family.

 

There may be some info available on the usgenweb - pa - lancaster board or a

lookup.

 

WE have this bible reading and I have NO other info on. DAVID may recognize

this family and IF it pertains to what family

I don't believe we have other info, till we get more of these documents from

Lancaster Co., Pa.
