Description: Jacob Sellers was born in Montgomery County ...

Jacob SELLERS (colored) was born in Montgomery County, North Carolina on the
15th day of March, 1817. When he was about 30 years old, he was joined in
marriage with Laura WILLIAMS. They lived in North Carolina until the
troublesome times of 1860, when he resolved to find a home in the North. They started
on the 6th day of November (The day that Lincoln was elected) they crossed the
line and left his native state forever.

Traveling was slow, with all his earthly possessions in a one horse wagon
that had to be stopped occasionally to have his papers examined before he could
go on, so that it was nearly Spring when he got to his friends in Ohio. In
1874 he became converted to the Christian faith and joined the Baptist church
in Harveysburg and has ever since been a faithful and esteemed member. He
died after a long sickness on the 15th day of July 1889, leaving a wife and four
children to mourn his loss, seven children having gone before.
In politics he was a strong Republican saying that the party that had done
so much for his race should have his support.
