J. W. Shreeves passes away. - Former Union City business man dies at daughter's residence.
Jacob W. Shreeves, 79, retired Union City business man, died at 6 a. m. Wednesday at the home of a daughter, Mrs. Harry E. Sellers, in Marion, Indiana. Mr. Shreeves became ill about one year ago, at which time he went to make his home with his daughter. Death was attributed to a stroke which he suffered 10 days ago.
Mr. Shreeves was born in Jackson township, Randolph county, on September 2, 1861. He attended the township schools and later went to New Madison, O., where he entered the milling business. Returning to Union City, he entered at various times the automotive, hardware and real estate businesses. Just before leaving Union City he maintained offices with L. L. Taylor in the Atlas bank building.
Surviving are the widow, Dresna; the daughter, at whose home he died, Mrs. Harry E. Sellers, Marion, and one sister, Mrs. Rebecca Hammons, of Winchester. One son, Harry, and a grandson preceded him in death.
Are you connected to the Zeller families? I've seen your your earlier postings on other sites and I think or hope that you might have be able to help me to connect to my GGG Grandfather Jacob Zeller [born in Pennsylvania between 1770-80 and died about 1848 in Brecknock Township, Lancaster County, His will was dated 1848. His widow Anna Maria [Mariah] at 75 years of age, moved to Darke County ,Ohio with her son George A. Zeller, wife Elisabeth and his seven children. I remembered that you were researching the Zeller and Sellers families that moved from Pennsylvania to Ohio so I am hoping that you may have run across something. Thanks Marie, Richard Zeller, 2320 North Alberta Street, Portland, Oregon. Phone 503-285-5706 email email@example.com
Dear Marie, My ggg granfather George Zeller was in the 1860 census of Adams Township, Darke County, Ohio. They were wrongly identified as SELLERS.
