   Frank E. Sellers, 89, of Vestaburg, died Monday, May 7, 1984, AT 7:35
in Greene County Memorial Hospital, after a long illness.
   He was born January 28, 1895, in Bluff, a son of Henry C. and Dora
   He was married to Lena Malone Sellers, who died March 4, 1976.
   Mr. Sellers was a retired coal miner for the Clyde Mine of Republic
and a member of Clyde UMW Local 688 of Fredericktown.  He lived most of his
life in the Clarksville area, spending the last five years in Vestaburg
his daughter, Betty Andolsek.
   He was a member of the Carmichaels Christian Church and attended the
Clarksville Missionary Church.  He served as an elder and Sunday School
   Surviving are two sons, Thomas Sellers of Clarksville, Sherman Sellers
Mathers; two daughters, Edna Higgins of Rices Landing R.D.1, Betty Andolsek

step-grandchildren; and 15 step-great-grandchildren.
   He was the last of his immediate family.  Deceased are a grandson, David

This was from one of the Waynesburg papers - services were by the Behm

a baby, Simon (above), b. 11/10/1923 and d. 11/15/1923, who is buried in

Robert, lives in Mather.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year,

Jim,  You are so good.  Yes that is my Uncle Frank.  When we were small
children and went to Pa. to visit he would stop and pick us up for church.
We have Don Sellers phone number as he had been attending our family
reunions. He also was interested in purchasing a motor home that we owned.
believe he does some work like a para-medic there in Clarksville.  I went
my Aunt Roxies funeral here in Mi. but I do not have a card from her
 I do know she married a Dukate the first time and had 1 son, she was
to John Black 2 times and had one son John with him.  Her and Uncle John
finished their years in a convalescent home in Belleville, Mi.  Will try to
find out more.  Thanks again, Wilma Ferrell=WILMA'S PAGE

The Obituary for Thomas Spencer Sellers, whose grave was also in the family
cemetery reads:

Thomas S. Sellers Dies Unexpectedly
   Waynesburg, Dec. 17 -- Thomas Spencer Sellers, 64, died suddenly today
his home near Deep Valley in Springhill Township.  He had been in ill
the last few months.
   Mr. Sellers,  well known farmer and stock raiser, was born June 29,
in Springhill Township.  He was a son of John and Rachel Moreford Sellers.
He spent all his life in Springhill Township.  He was never married.  He
a member of the Laurel Run Methodist Church.
   Surviving are two brothers, Joseph Sellers, Deep Valley, and Fletcher
Sellers, Garrison.

A later note reads:
SELLERS -- Funeral services for Thomas Spencer Sellers, who died, Sunday,
December 17, 1944, in his home in Deep Valley, will be held at 2 p. m.
Tuesday, Dec. 19, in his home, in charge of Rev. Lew F. Johnson.  Friends
received at George I. Church Funeral Parlor, Waynesburg, until 11 a. m.
Tuesday.  Burial in family burial ground.  G. Bocher Wright and George I.
Church, funeral director.

His father and mother, John and Rachel Moreford Sellers, are the John and
Rachel in the cemetery - a Rachel Moreford, 9, appears in the 1850 Census
Greene County, Aleppo Township (next to Springhill), in the household of
father, Jesse, 141/141

I made another mistake the other night - the will found in the Greene
Will Book 10, page 74, No. 6202, is this same Rachel, the wife of John - it
was written 2/6/1905 and registered 3/6/1905 - mentioned children, Dressa,
Thomas S. and J. F.. as well Mrs. Lucy Sellers McCracken, who gives her
portion to Thomas S. - the will states that Rachel died on 2/23/1905 at

I have a map of Springhill Township taken from Caldwell's Illustrated
Combination Centennial Atlas of Greene Co. Pennsylvania by J. A. Caldwell,
1876 - the map on p. 78 shows the location of a J. Sellers near the present
location of this homestead we saw. - but it is not at the same spot - this
was curious - but the caretaker told me that there was another house almost
across from the cemetery that had been torn down 7-8 years ago - it appears
to be the spot on the map - when I get a scan of the map I will send it -
p. 139 in a Springhill Township business directory, it lists J. Sellers PA
Deep Valley 1821 160 290 Farmer and Stock Raiser - translated = born PA -
settled here in 1821 (date of birth for John) - resided in Deep Valley -
sure about 160 - but owned 290 acres

I have more - but it is late again and I fear more mistakes - my fragile
can not stand to make more admissions - so I will sign off for now - sweet

Rogersville, April 10, 1814. He was married to Elizabeth Morris in 1840,
there were born to them five children, four of whom are living. He was
converted to Christianity when a young man, and was a member of the M, E,
church of this place. He was a remarkable example of Christian patience,
bore up under his afflictions as only one begotten into a living hope
His friends sorrow not as those that have no hope, because they think not
with the Greek that he has passed to that born from whence no traveler
returns, but confidently expect his return with all those that lone the
appearing of their Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Good morning Marie. I just check out the Sellers web site of Green County Pa.
Again I want to thank you for posting these latest Sellers obituaries, and
for placing Mary L. Morris obit. in the right place on said web site.  Marie,
and Jim.

I wrote that I thought that this John Sellers that died April 16,
1914, was the son of George and Elizabeth Sellers of Rich Hill Twp. and was
the brother of Maria Sellers that married B.F. Wallace. We have her obit.
listed on this web site. She died Sept. 2, 1914 it has in her obit that 3
brothers survives her, A. H.  and Frank of Waynesburg, and John of Iowa. So
if Maria Wallace obituary is correct, then this can't be my John son of
George and Eliz. of RichHill. the only other John that was listed for that
age in the Census of 1850 through the 1880 census would be the son of George
and Mary Sellers. For the 1850 census Household # 60, # 270 Center Twp. has
this family with a son John age 2. The 1860 census of this family has this
John as age 13.
Jim. You posted on Green County web site the 1870 census. If you still have
said census, could you look up for me just where this John Sellers age 22
m.w. Carpenter. Pa. was found. You have on p. 306 # 170/168 Morion Twp. the
family of Wm. Cotterral with wife Sarah (Sellers) Cotterral which was the
sister of George Sellers with wife Eliz. (Morris) listed with this family was
an Atkinson Sellers age 25, which we now know for sure was A. H.  Sellers son
of George and Eliz. Listed below this in Marion Twp. P. 306, # 220/218. you
have Benjamin Wallace age 33 with wife Marie (Sellers) age 30. Which we know
was the daughter of George and Eliz. Just below this family of Wallace you
have this John Sellers age 22. You do not have just where he is listed as
living, was it with the Wallace family?  I know that you are a busy man Jim,
but if you could check this out for me, and get back to me on this. It would
be much appreciated. And I will keep on working on this end on finding more
information on the Sellers of Green County Pa.
Thanks. FDH. Dennis
