2) There was another house almost across from the cemetery down
bottom next to the run - you can barely see the old gate - the house was
torn down 5-10 years ago - this may have been where John's parents, Joseph (?)
and Elizabeth lived
The Sellers family in the Sellers Cemetery in Springhill Township,
County, PA, are likely connected to the Christian Sellers line many of us
are pursuing - but the connection is not clear at this point - the cemetery is
part of the John Sellers homestead - it is found on Stockdale Road (TR335)
between Garrison and Deep Valley - within the cemetery are found markers
for Sellers, Stockdale - Poland - Hafer - Petit and maybe others
John Sellers - b 12/23/1806 - d. 3/16/1896
married Rachel Moreford - b. 3/28/1841 - d. 2/23/1905
(both are buried in the Sellers Cemetery)
John and Rachel had 6 children (5 are listed on the 1880 Greene

Thomas Spencer - b. 6/29/1880 - d. 12/16/1944 - never married
(only one of immediate family not on 1880 soundex - still in oven)
also in the Sellers Cemetery is Elizabeth Sellers - d. 11/18/1877 -
wife of Jos. Sellers - these two may have been John's parents or Joseph
could have been John's brother
John bought the land the homestead is on from Thomas J. Bissett on
- he also obtained land from the county Sheriff, Hannah Cummins and Perry
W. Martin, among others - altogether he had 150 acres - Wilbur lived there
after his mother and father - now owned by the Null family
The farm was divided among his family when John died - Greene County
Book 60, pp 383ff
also in Greene County Will Book 10, p 74., No. 6202 - the will of Rachel
Null Sellers is recorded, mentioning Dressa, Thomas, Fletcher and Lucy
Hi Jim, I just had a chance to look over your information that you
on the people buried at said cemetery, and the dates on the stones. I find
them all as I had written down. except the date of birth for John Sellers.
had written down born Dec, 23, 1820, you have month and day the same, but
year 1806, was I that far off? or is it as you said, you are just tired,
you will correct any mistakes or errors tomorrow. On the bottom of John's
stone it had -J.S & R.S. I was never sure of just what that meant. I
maybe Son of J. S. & RS But I could not think of any other J. S. that
fit into our line of the Sellers. I have written down from Book 10 page 74,
Rachel Sellers who died March 6, 1905, Springhill Twp. Green County, and it
then list to who what goes to whom, daughter Dressa, son Thomas S. and to
son J.F.= John Fletcher./ And then Thomas Spencer Sellers Will Aug, 11,
To my sister Dressa, to my brother Joseph Sellers of Green Co. to my
J. Fletch Sellers and to my sister Lucy (Sellers) McCracken of Green Co....
I could not connect these names to this John Sellers.-- Rachel Sellers stone,
must had been one of the stones that you turn over, that I had missed. All I
can say is thank you for putting the pieces together for me. As I wrote
either 1806 or 1820 for John's date of birth. that would still fit into the
time farm of the missing John that I am looking for. The son of George and
Mary Sellers, and the brother of my ASA. Well, goodnight Jim. Dennis H.

I just wanted to pass this information on to you. While trying
match up some of the information that we have on the Sellers of Green Co.
= Census, Marriage, Obituary's and Cemetery records. I have found a mistake
listed in the booklet "Cemetery Records of Green County, Pa. Vol. 2, 1975
Center Twp.= Rosemont Cemetery." It list David E. Sellers d. 11-25-1931,
52. = On David's and his wife stone it has, " Father" David E Sellers b.
1847, d. 1931. & "Mother" Belle U. Sellers b. 1855, d. 1940== David E.
Sellers was the son of George and Nancy (Rogers) Sellers (see 1850 Green
census) and was the Grandson of David and Elizabeth Sellers. = David
Bell A. Ullum (both of Rogersville Twp.) Nov, 7, 1875. = (see Marriage list
for Green County). We find this family in the Center Twp. Census of 1880
listed as= David Sellers age 33, farmer. = Belle age 24, wife. = Georgie
03, daughter. I did not find this family listed in the 1910 Green County
Miracode Index Census listed= "Ancestry.Com.= Also listed among the Sellers
in Rosemont Cemetery is a Verna F. Sellers 1895-1984= her marker is found
George Sellers 1888-1927 & Virginia Maye Sellers 1922-1929. = Also among
these markers is one for Kathleen Tenant.
Marie, when I was in Green County Pa. date 6-26-1996, I went to Green
Cemetery in Waynesburg Pa. At that time I knew very little about my Sellers
line, I did write down some information from the Sellers Markers.=Sec. B.
Lot. 55 = George J. Sellers d. June 14, 1901, age 86. = Wife Elizabeth.
Sellers d. June 1899 age 83. = & Atkinson Sellers d. 1928, also in same
( IM not sure if this marker was with the others) was a Nancy J. Sellers,
Oct, 14.1936. age 81. This family of Sellers= George and wife Elizabeth
(Richmond ) Sellers, and son Atkinson was the family that Vern Anderson
about in his Marshall Co. W.V. =Which I now believe this George "Just"
be the son of George and Mary (Shermon ) Sellers of Center Twp. Green Co.
Pa.= see 1830/40 & 50 Census of said County. I don't have the cemetery book
of Green Mont Cemetery, would you ask one of your readers on line that has
said booklet to contact me, that I might ask them to look up some
for me. Thanks. FDH. Dennis.

My name is Craig Sellers. Recently I have taken an interest in documenting the genealogy of my family tree. I have taken the liberty of highlighting several items of your post in order to help you with your own investigations. First I would like to say that I am familier with this line as it belongs to my own family tree and that the Sellers's buried here are not related to those you are searching for. I was sorry to hear about the shape of the cemetery, I have plans this summer July 28, 2003 to take a few weeks off and return to the cemetery to upright the stones, and clean up the grounds. John Sellers, born Dec, 20, 1820 died March 1896 S/O J. S. & R.S. This John Sellers would be my Great Grandfather. He is the son of Joseph and Elizabeth however not J.S and R.S. The R.S. would be Johns wife - Rachel Sellers. Joseph Sellers - Johns father died in 1839 in Jefferson -Greene County. Joseph was my Great Great Grandfather and the Elizabeth you saw there was his wife.
Bash D. Sellers, daughter of J. J. & H. (? Pettit ) died 1885.--
I have no idea who this could be. I will have to see the stone for myself.
I have no records of such a person.
As I have never been to the Cemetery I would like to know if you could send me the directions if you still have them. I would appreciate it.
Sincerely, Craig Sellers

I happen to go back and visited Greene County Pa. web site this night, and found some new pictures of Rogersville's Cemetery.. It has pictures of David Sellers, Roseberry and Roseberry's Sellers small daughters markers. I thought you might enjoy seeing said photos. = http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~usgenweb/pa/greene/cemet.htm
