Hello,
While suring I ran across some interesting connections in
the archinves. I am new to the list and I am researching my
husband's family as follows:
Jacob Sellers 1766-1853
...William Runkel Sellers 1795-1870
.....Ferdinand Sellers 1824-1911 m. Rebecca Hormell
1828-1887
.......Laura Emma Sellers 1848-1924
.........Burt LaFetra Lackey 1872-1960

His parents were 3rd cousins, his father a descendant of
Milton John Hormell - brother of Rebecca Hormell.  I am very
much interested in the Rockingham, County connection and
further information, especially the will that was mentioned,
of Johannes Zellers 1735.  I would like to know how or where
I could find a copy.  Also interested in the article about
Henry Harvey Sellers, which was posted by Sherry.  I have a
small booklet "A History and Genealogy of the Sellers
Family" compiled and written by David Randolph Sellers,
Cincinnatti, Ohio: Robbins Advertising, Inc. 1966.  Feel
free to contact me if I can help in any way.

 Researching: Beck, Benham, Bogan, Clark, Clevenger, Colvin,
Florea, Harlan, Honeyman, Hormell, Kelly, Lackey, Leeth,
Schrader, Sellers, Shelley, Vance, and more.........



The booklet was given to my mother-in-law by the author.  It
is only 16 pages long.  Yes I am searching my direct line,
which would be Beck and Leeth, etc.  For more information

Hi Pat,

Welcome to the group. I have information on your
Sellers/Zeller line. I have
Jacob as the son of Johannes Zeller who was the son of
Heinrich and Anna Maria Zeller. I have two familiy history books books on this
line the first being Cradled by Massanutten, and The Zellers-Sellers family
and Sellers: A Preliminary Study of the Descendants of Heinrich Sellers.
Heinrich Zeller
came to the Colonies on Sept 16, 1738 on board the Queen
Elizabeth. The family is from Germany.

This first book has your line and the will of Johannes
Zeller dated 1804 which mentions his son Jacob who moved to "New Pensylvania."
(Ohio). I can  copy this and send it to you, if its not on the Sellers
website yet.

Jim
