BLAIR COUNTY HISTORY

ered by the federal government as one of the rebellious sections that needed to
be taught enforcement. A knowledge of the hardships and trials experienced by
the men on the American frontier and the development of those rugged characters,
independent, freedom-loving and God-fearing, results in a clearer understanding
and appreciation of their position in such matters as the federal excise tax.
Thus again the county of which Blair was then a part was brought to the
attention of the eastern citizenry.

At the same time that failure to pay the excise was agitated the Supreme
Executive Council of Pennsylvania was perfecting plans to improve the Juniata
River for navigation. In 1789 and 1709 [1790], the minutes of this Council show
evidence of the part the state began to play in the matter of internal
improvements in the present Blair County. The aim of the Council was to secure
information concerning the best water routes, and the extent of improvements
necessary, to connect eastern Pennsylvania rivers with those of the western part
of the state. The minutes of the Supreme Executive Council that include
reference to a survey of the Juniata River follow.

 

"Philadelphia, Friday,
"October 2nd, 1789.
"On Motion,
"Resolved, That in conformity to an act of General Assembly passed the twenty-
eighth of September last, entitled 'An Act to appropriate the sum of five
thousand pounds annually for the purpose therein mentioned,' Timothy Matlack,
Reading Howell and William Dean, be and they are hereby appointed Commissioners
to view the river Delaware; that John Sellers and John Adlum be and they are
hereby appointed Commissioners to view the river Schuylkill;

==============

Altoona Postoffice and Postmasters.

Robert McNamara was the first postmaster in this vicinity, having been
appointed Nov. 11, 1817. The office was then in Collinsville, Huntingdon
county. He was succeeded, Aug. 3, 1830, by David Y. Hileman, who held the
job just two months, when McNamara took it back. McNamara was then in turn
followed by these postmasters on the dates given: Esther Denlenger, March
18, 1834; Michael Hileman, April 25, 1835; Benjamin Figart, March 24, 1846;
George Boozel, Dec. 21, 1848.

[44]

On Nov. 1, 1850, George C. Ferree was appointed and the office moved to
Altoona. After Thomas Elway was appointed on June 29, 1852, he moved the
office to 1402 Twelfth avenue, and after Henry A. Sellers was appointed May
21, 1853,
he moved the office to 1408 Eleventh avenue.

=

Pioneer Business and Professional Men.

In 1852 Henry A. Sellers. erected a
building at 1408 Eleventh avenue, where he kept store.
==
Pioneers in business and trade soon found in Altoona a mecca they were seeking.
Adlum & Irvin, John Loudon, Clement Jaggard, James Lowther, William McDowell,
John Morrow and Joseph B. Hileman were among the early Altoona merchants. George
Wayne was the first merchant in the Greensville section and in 1852, Henry A.
Sellers
conducted a store and post-office on the present site of 1408 Eleventh
Avenue.

Marie - David who is listed as a laborer and living with Thompson the
blacksmith, is my g-grandfather. David was the youngest child of George and
Margaret. George W Sellers, age 25, married to Mary is David's older
brother. Their brother Hiram moved to Cumberland, MD and became a boat
builder. Just as an aside, one of Hiram's descendants, also named George,
runs a travel agency in Baltimore. I've talked to him on-line. He isn't
into family history as yet, but he knew about another Hiram in his family
background. Last time I sent you a msg, I think I mistakenly said that
George went to MD. He actually stayed in Blair Co. Sorry if I confused
you.

MARRIAGES
SELLERS, Geo. E.
Married:  25 ult. Mr. Geo. E. Sellers to Miss Anna M. Steffler, both of

  From:
       "ksellers" <ksellers@mcs.k12.nc.us>

Marie  -  Don't know if we're in the same ballpark, but there was a Harvey Sellers in Hollidaysburg.  His father was John G. Sellers who was the son of David and Rebecca and the older brother of Andrew McClelland Sellers.  He is listed in the 1910 census as age 21 years.  He had brothers Edgar(19) and Earl(15) and a sister Helen(9).  Their
mother was Virginia age 47.  All the children eventually moved from Hollidaysburg, but to where I do not know.
One of the boys ended up in Key West, Fla and Helen went to Julliard School of Music.  That's about all I know of Harvey and his family.

===

JOHN G. SELLERS, proprietor of one of the leading meat markets in
Hollidaysburg, Pa., is also the owner of two other markets, one at Gaysport,
Pa., and the other at Altoona, Pa., and he is also the owner of seven
residences in this borough. He was born January 10, 1865, at Hollidaysburg,
Pa., and is a son of David M. and Rebecca R. (Martin) Sellers, both deceased.
John G. Sellers was reared and educated in Hollidaysburg, and during his
early manhood worked on the railroad about four years, and subsequently spent
four years in the employ of H. L. Bunker, who operated a meat market at
Hollidaysburg. In 1889 he opened his market which is located on the diamond,
in Hollidaysburg, of which his son, Edgar Sellers, has practically entire
charge, and in 1898 he established a market in the Shoemaker building at
Gaysport, Pa. The latter market is managed by his brother, William Sellers.
His shop on Sixteenth Street, Altoona, was purchased in September, 1910, from
J. A. Jones, and is under the management of his son, Harry B. Sellers. Mr.
Sellers devotes the greater part of his time to buying and dresses all of his
own meat, and the slaughter house, which is located on Juniata Street, is said
by the state inspector, to be the finest in Pennsylvania, the interior being
of concrete, with cement blocks, slate roof, and is fire proof.

BLAIR COUNTY HISTORY

DAVID A. RAUGH,

an industrious and substantial citizen, and a reliable and prosperous
furniture dealer of Bellwood, is a son of Solomon and Hannah (Geissinger)
Raugh, and was born in Huntingdon county, Pennsylvania, May 19, 1842. The
Raughs were among the early German families of eastern Pennsylvania, and
Henry Raugh (grandfather) was a native of that part of the State. He settled
near the county-seat of Huntingdon county, where he followed farming until his
death. He was a carpenter by trade, and married Mary Fink, a native of
Huntingdon county, by whom he had a family of eight children, of whom were
Jonathan, Sally, and Solomon. Solomon Raugh was born in Woodcock Valley,
Huntingdon county, about 1812, followed milling during the active years of
his life, and died near Alexandria, in his native county, in February,
1877. He was an industrious man, and a consistent member of the Methodist
Episcopal church. He married Hannah Geissinger, a daughter of John
Geissinger, a miller and farmer of near McCauleystown, Huntingdon county, who
served as a soldier in the War of 1812, and married Hannah Sellers, who lived
to see her ninety-fourth birthday. Solomon and Hannah (Geissinger) Raugh
reared a family of six sons: John, who was a soldier in the late war and is
now dead; William, went west and is now engaged in farming in Iowa; Sellers,
a miller by trade, served as a soldier in the 125th Pennsylvania infantry,
and is now a resident of Bellwood; James, served in the late Civil War as a
private in the 53d Pennsylvania infantry and participated in the Battle of
Gettysburg; Oliver M., a coach maker by trade and a resident of Iowa; and
David A.
David A. Raugh was reared on the farm and attended the common
schools. Leaving school he learned the trade of miller, which he followed
successfully for thirty years in Huntingdon county and at Bellwood. He came
to Bellwood in November, 1882, and in 1891, about five months previous to
retiring from milling, he embarked in his present furniture business. His
establishment is a two-story structure, 21x50 feet in dimensions, well
arranged and heavily stocked with all kinds of parlor, library, dining-room,
and office furniture in all the leading and most fashionable designs. Mr.
Raugh is a reliable dealer, and the honorable way in which he conducts his
business meets the commendation of his patrons. Although but fairly launched
in his business, yet his trade is already very flattering and promises to
increase to large dimensions in the future.
David A. Raugh is a republican in politics, a consistent member of the
Methodist Episcopal church of Bellwood, and a reliable and successful
business man. He is also a member of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows in
Bellwood.
Mr. Raugh married Susan Smith, who died and left six children: Mary,
who died at eighteen years of age; James, now dead; Carrie, wife of Calvin
Elder, of Bellwood; Patience, who married Charles Lytle; Samuel, and
Clarence. After his first wife's death Mr. Raugh was united in marriage with
Ella Aurandt, and to this second union have been born two children: Daisy and
Sellers.

HENRY C. CRIDER, proprietor of a general store, and also postmaster at
Sabbath Rest post office, Blair County, has been a life long resident of this
county. He was born June 23, 1861, in Tyrone, Pa., a son of Peter and Ruth
(McFarland) Crider.
The first immigrant of the Crider family was Jacob Crider, who came to
America in 1712, obtaining from William Penn 800 acres of land near
Lancaster, Pa. He was followed by Martin Crider, who with three sons -
Joseph, John Jacob, and Frederick - landed in Philadelphia September 16,
1736, Martin, who was a blacksmith by trade, settled near Conestoga,
Lancaster County, Pa., and the family owned a considerable quantity of land
in Lebanon Township, that county. Martin Crider had other children, for we
find that his son Henry (born 1746, died November 15, 1779) married Barbara
Yoder, who came from Switzerland. Among their children was Peter,
great-grandfather of the subject of this sketch, who was born August 15,
1776, and died March 18, 1818, in Sinking Valley, which was then in
Huntingdon, but is now in Blair County. The next in line of descent was
Henry, grandfather of our subject, who came here from Lancaster County, and
who married Maria Sellers. Their family, which was large, consisted mostly of
girls, there being but one son, Peter.
Peter Crider, above mentioned, was born on a farm a short distance out
of Tyrone, Pa., and became a farmer, which occupation he followed until
within a few years ago. He married Ruth McFarland, a daughter of John
McFarland, and their family was as follows: Henry C., whose name appears at
the head of this sketch; Leah, now deceased, who was the wife of James Wood;
John, who is residing in Altoona; Lizzie, wife of Harry Sutton, of Altoona;
George; who died at the age of twenty years; Myrtle, who died at the age of
seven; C. W., who is now a resident of Altoona, Pa. Mrs. Ruth Crider, the
mother of the above mentioned children, died December 31, 1910, and Mr. Peter
Crider is now living in retirement at Pinecroft.
Henry C. Crider was about nine years of age when his parents moved to
Elizabeth Furnace, and with the exception of twelve years spent in Altoona,
he has always resided here. He carried on general farming until 1892, when he
was appointed postmaster at Sabbath Rest, the post office for which place was
for years known as Elizabeth Furnace, but is now known as Pinecroft. About
the time of his appointment as postmaster, Mr. Crider opened a general store,
and for the past three years he has also been operating a planing-mill and a
cider mill.
Mr. Crider was married October 25, 1881, to Margaret Woomer, who was
born and reared at Elizabeth Furnace, and is a daughter of James and Mary
(Oswalt) Woomer, both of whom were reared in Blair County. The following
children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Crider: Mary, who died when but a few days
old; Grace, who is the wife of Howard McKnight and the mother of four children
-William, Anna, Isabel and Clara Bell; Ruth, who married Wilbur Peters, of
Elizabeth Furnace, and has one child -May; Clara Belle, who died at the age
of five years; Alma and Mila, who were twins; Peter, who died at the age of
about one year; Harry, who resides at home; Edward, who died at the age of
two years; and Margaret Leora. In politics Mr. Crider is identified with the
Republican party and has served as auditor of the township for two years. His
religious connection is with the Lutheran church.

DAVID M. THOMPSON, an enterprising citizen of Williamsburg, who is now
serving as street commissioner and superintendent of the water works, was
born February 28, 1851, at Hollidaysburg, Pa., and is a son of Roswell D. and
Mary M. (Sellers) Thompson. The father was a blacksmith by trade, a Republican
in politics, and the religious connection of both parents was with the
Methodist Church. The following children were born to the parents of our
subject: Margaret, Caroline, John, David M., George, Mary, Emma, Charles B.,
William, and Harry.
