MIMI - Thank You - Need copies of SELLERS info on 1880 and 1900 CENSUS, on
place
of birth of parents of James Rodman SELLERS , son of Robert SELLERS and
Nancy
RODMAN
IF there is a State census - Need - My records show the family still in NC
in
1800/10, so should show NC, but understand the 1880 census shows TN - would
like
to know if it was changed on a State Census or 1900 census - Perhaps Oregon
has an
1890?
We have members working on this family, who will probably contact you and
names
and documents are listed on our Washington Co, IN page with links to other
pages.
Would like to hear more about this Pioneer to CA and OR, marie, iowa

In 1850 census, James Rodham Sellers & new wife Mary Ann McCartney and
first
child Mary Elizabeth, are in Wakefield, Shelby County, Illinois.  In the
1860
census they are in Indian Creek Township, Story County, Iowa, with Mary
Elizabeth & two additional children:  John A. & Martha.  In the 1870 census
they have made the big move and are in Big Valley, Lake County, California,
with the first three children, plus James, D., William T. and Charles H.
In
1880 they have moved once again and are in Pleasant Hill Township, Lane
County, Oregon, with only the youngest children still at home.  In 1900
James
Sellers is still in Lane County, Oregon, but in Eugene with his daughter &
son-in-law, Martha & Gainey Matthews.  He is listed as a widower, his wife
having died ca. 1888.  I do not have a copy of the 1910, census, but he was
still in Lane County, Oregon, dying there on 4 February 1911.  I have his
obituary & death certificate.

My daughter-in-law, a Sellers, is the great great granddaughter of James
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.
There
is also a write-up, bio. on this family in The Centennial History of Oregon
by
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 on James
Rodaman's parents.              Mimi Stang MStang5165@aol.com



Sherry - I do have the marriage of Robert Sellers and Nancy Rodman listed
as
29 October 1822 in Washington County, Indiana.  However, mine is only an
extraction - I have not seen a copy of the actual record.  Does someone
have
that?

Their son, James R. (Rodman?) Sellers, who md. Mary Ann McCartney, is the
one
I am tracking.  He was born 1 September 1827, probably in Washington
County,
Indiana, md. Mary Ann McCartney 7 January 1849 in Shelby County, Illinois.
Is
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
son
in The Centennial History of Oregon by Gaston, states that the family
moved to
California in 1863. By 1871 he has arrived in Oregon.

I do not any information on the family in Ohio, however.         Mimi

    Thought I'd jump into the Rodman-Sellers discussion.  I really have not
done
extensive research on the Rodmans, but did send to the National Society,
Daughters of the American Revolution, for a copy of an application paper
on
Hugh Rodman, Sr. It was submitted in 1975.

It shows Hugh Rodman, Sr. as born ca. 1756 in Northumberland Co. Penns.,
died
at Dubois County, Indiana, on 7 May 1815.  His wife was Elizabeth
Hearst/Hurst.  Seven children are listed for them:  William (no dates);
James,
b. 23 Feb. 1785, md. Elizabeth Burton; John, born 24 February 1787, md.
Mary
Foree; Hugh, Jr., born 8 February 1788, md. Elizabeth McLane; Thomas, born
24
February 1791; Rachel (no dates) md. John McMannis and Elizabeth (no
dates)
md. John Chapman.

Hugh Rodman, Sr. plus the following four generations are all born, married
and
deceased in Washington County, Indiana, with the exception of Hugh Rodman,
Jr.
listed as being born in Fort Beergrass, Kentucky??  Burial in either the
Old
Hebron Baptist Church Cemetery or the Blue River Baptist Church Cemetery
in
Washington County.

The Rodmans you listed in the Washington County, Indiana, 1820 Census, are
almost certainly this family.  The Hugh Rodman still alive in 1820 would
be
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
Rodman,
Sr. was born in Northumberland County, Pennsylavania.               Mimi

To Sherry
How wonderful that you have a copy of the papers from the Sellers-Rodman
murder trial.  Of course, I am extremely interested in it since these are
my
grandson's ancestors and I will gladly pay you for copies of the file - let
me know how much you would need for copies and postage and I will send you
a
check.                       Mimi Stang MStang5165@aol.com
