MIMI - Thank You - Need copies of SELLERS info on 1880 and 1900 CENSUS,
of birth of parents of James Rodman SELLERS , son of Robert SELLERS and
IF there is a State census - Need - My records show the family still in NC
1800/10, so should show NC, but understand the 1880 census shows TN - would
to know if it was changed on a State Census or 1900 census - Perhaps Oregon
We have members working on this family, who will probably contact you and
and documents are listed on our Washington Co, IN page with links to other
Would like to hear more about this Pioneer to CA and OR, marie, iowa
My daughter-in-law, a Sellers, is the great great granddaughter of
Rodham Sellers, the great granddaughter of William Thomas Sellers, born 10
December 1864 in Ukiah, Mendocino, California. The birth of her son, my
grandson, on January 1, 1997, has prompted my research into this family.
is also a write-up, bio. on this family in The Centennial History of Oregon
Joseph Gaston, Volume 4. I will be glad to send a copy of any of the
information I have, if you let me know where I should send it.
And I will look forward to hearing from someone with information
Rodaman's parents. Mimi Stang MStang5165@aol.com
Their son, James R. (Rodman?) Sellers, who md. Mary Ann McCartney, is
I am tracking. He was born 1 September 1827, probably in Washington
Indiana, md. Mary Ann McCartney 7 January 1849 in Shelby County, Illinois.
on the 1850 Shelby County census. In 1860 he has migrated to Story County,
Iowa, and by 1870 all the way to Lake County, California. A bio. of his
in The Centennial History of Oregon by Gaston, states that the family
California in 1863. By 1871 he has arrived in Oregon.
I do not any information on the family in Ohio, however.
It shows Hugh Rodman, Sr. as born ca. 1756 in Northumberland Co. Penns.,
at Dubois County, Indiana, on 7 May 1815. His wife was Elizabeth
Hearst/Hurst. Seven children are listed for them: William (no dates);
b. 23 Feb. 1785, md. Elizabeth Burton; John, born 24 February 1787, md.
Foree; Hugh, Jr., born 8 February 1788, md. Elizabeth McLane; Thomas, born
February 1791; Rachel (no dates) md. John McMannis and Elizabeth (no
md. John Chapman.
Hugh Rodman, Sr. plus the following four generations are all born, married
deceased in Washington County, Indiana, with the exception of Hugh Rodman,
listed as being born in Fort Beergrass, Kentucky?? Burial in either the
Hebron Baptist Church Cemetery or the Blue River Baptist Church Cemetery
The Rodmans you listed in the Washington County, Indiana, 1820 Census,
almost certainly this family. The Hugh Rodman still alive in 1820 would
Hugh Rodman, Jr., who md. Elizabeth McLane, as Hugh Sr. died in 1815.
Our Sellers connection is through Hugh Rodman, Jr. and Elizabeth McLane
Sellers. Their daughter was Nancy Jane Rodman who md. Robert Sellers, 29
October 1822 in Washington County, Indiana.
I do not see any mention of New York in these papers, just that Hugh
Sr. was born in Northumberland County, Pennsylavania. Mimi
