Elizabeth born 4 May 1737 died on 23 Apr in Manchester, Batimore Cty Md.

Paul and His wife Elizabeth traveled with their two children Elizabeth and
John to Manchester, Baltimore Cty Md where Paul purchased some land from
Elizabeth's father. They had an additional 8 children

(Roger Sellers in a note stated that His ancester Paul Sellers owned
a very developed 217A patented "Everything Needful" in the pipe creek
hundred Balt Co. in 1798 The land information is from the "Particular
assessment lists of Maltimore and Carroll Counties 1798 by George
Horvathur).   Roger also states that Paul Sellers is listed as one of the
9000 men who swore allegiance to Maryland during the revolution)

Manchester Carroll Cty Md.

John Sellers served in the war of 1812 under Captain Adam Showers in the
Maryland Militia 15th regiment. Discharged 1814 with rank of Private

There is in the family a baptism certificate for John Paul Sellers from a
church in Bucks county.  It is possible that the family traveled to Bucks
county to visit and had John Baptized.

John married Catherine Weaver 1 Nov 1821 in Manchester Baltimore Cty Md
Catherine Weaver born 1805 in Manchester Carroll Cty Md 1887,
(Catherine Weaver war of 1812 claim of widow for service pernsion granted)

They had 9 children
Samuel  Born Jul 24 1822 in Manchester Baltimore cty Md Died 29 Jan 1853 in
Marysville, Ohio. Buried in Oakdale Cemetary Marysville, Oh.
Henry Born 1823 Manchester

Ellen Sellers born 1835
John H Sellers born 1840  Died 1895
Jane A born 1841

George Lewis and Samuel moved to Marysville Union County Ohio
John H may also have moved to Union County

George Lewis served in the Civil war with the rank of 1st Lieutenant. After
the war George was active in the reserves and received his captaincy.

John Henry married Nancy Jane Alexander in Marysville Ohio in 1860
They had the following children
Kathryn born 1871 died 1939
Charles French born Aug 31 1861 died Oct 22 1942
James A Sellers Born 1864
Henry K Born 1873
John jr Born 1873
Mary born 1880

I do not know where these people lived. According to family stories,
Kathryn was the first woman in Ohio to get a divorce which the woman gave
alimony. She was the first woman to be appointed as a US judge. She was
appointed by Woodrow Wilson. She also was the only woman to be an offical
delegate to the Armistice negotiations after the first world war

My father (Fred Sellers Sr born 1903) states that the family received a land
grant from Lord Baltimore for 5000 acres.  He says that "French Sellers"
e.g. Charles French Sellers took the land grant document from the family
home in Marysville. ( I could not understand if this was a gift or what).
Charles French Sellers worked for the Bureau of Documents in Washington DC.

If anyone knows about the Land Grant or whether Charles French Sellers
decendents have the land grant, I would be interested to know .

I will send a note about  Marysville Ohio (Union County  George Lewis
Sellers) soon

FROM ED
oldeoak@cvn.com

 Fred Sellers:        I enjoyed your information on the Paul Sellers, 1734,
 descendants.    My name is Edward L. McMillen of Ed's Page Carroll Co.,
Md.
 My mother's maiden name is Sellers and my new email address is
 oldeoak@cvn.com

 I am not 100% sure, but I believe I know all of the names of Paul &
 Elisabeth Hofmen Seller's children, the  "7 boys and 3 girls" mentioned on
 Elizabeth Hofmen's headstone #GA2-53.

The names were found in the Will of Philip Sellers who died 1837 in
Carroll  Co., Md.  The will of Philip Sellers was the first order of business in
the  newly formed County of Carroll, Md.  Philip's estate was divided equally
between his 3 sisters & 6 brothers.  Philip Seller's Will does not mention
his parents.

 I believe these are the Children of Paul & Elizabeth Sellers:

 Philip       died 1837
 Henry
 Jacob        # A07-01 Manchester Cem
 John        #A07-05  Manchester Cem
 Peter         Manchester cem
 George
 Abraham
 Elizabeth   married Peter Ulrich
 Polly    married George Wareham
 Cathrine single, divorced or widowed in 1837
 

 I believe I descend through Jacob Sellers  son of Paul & Elizabeth.  And I
 believe that your John Sr. is my Jacob's brother.

 The Will of my Jacob Sellers buried in Manchester Cem. lot #A07-01 gives
the  names of his wife as Barbara (unknown) most likely buried in lot #A07-02.
 On Fred's Page, Bucks Co., PA, I believe you might have listed this
Barbara  Sellers as her husband's sister?

 Children of Jacob & Barbara Sellers:
 Sarah          married Joseph Matthias
 Rachel        married Joshua Richards
 Catherine    married David Deal
 Jacob  (my grt grt grandfather I believe)

 My grt grt grt grandfather was Jacob B. Sellers b 3/15/1805 d 2/10/1881.
 Jacob B Sellers and his wife Elizabeth (unknown) are buried in the
 Manchester Cemetery Lots A18- 27 & 28.  Jacob B. Sellers was a blacksmith
 in Carroll Co, Md.  According to the book TWO CENTURIES OF GRACE AN GROWTH
 IN MANCHESTER, 1760-1969, by Harvey G. Schlicter, page 246; Jacob B.
Sellers  opened his shop in 1847 at 111 N. Main St. in Manchester.  His son E.G.
 later took over the business.

Children of Jacob B. and Elizabeth:

 William Lewis
 Barbara Elizabeth Sarah
 Edward G.
 Jacob Peter   (my grt grt grandfather)
 Mary R.

 Jacob P., my grt grt grandfather b 7/20/1840 d 9/3/1912 was also a
 blacksmith.  He married Rachel Ann Boring 1/27/1866 in Manchester, Md.
 Jacob P. Sellers & Rachel Anne Boring are buried in the Powell Cemetery,
 Powell, Liberty Township, Delaware County, Ohio
 Children:
 Robert Rusk   Manchest Bethel Cem #04-03
 Edward Lee    Manchest Bethel Cem #04-03
 Leroy  Boring b1/3/1874 d 1/20/1937
 Leila   b 1878

 All of the children  of Jacob P. Sellers & Rachel Boring were born in
 Manchester, Md. Then before 1880 census they moved to Marysville, Union
Co., > Ohio.  I see now that most likely it was his cousin George L. Sellers that
 persuaded them.

 Leroy [Roy] Boring Sellers their son was also a blacksmith.  My grt
 grandfather Roy Sellers set up his shop in Powell, Delaware Co., Ohio.
Just  east of Marysville.  Roy married May Jane Chambers.  Her family was Janes
 /Chambers from Vermont.  His parents came to live with them in their old
 age.  Leroy Boring Sellers is buried in the Powell Cemetery, Liberty
 Township, Delaware County, Ohio.  Most of his descendants live in and
around  Columbus, Ohio.

 How can I get a hold of your resource Roger Sellers?  I am sure he would
be  interested in my information.

 I do hope this information will be posted on the SELLERS family/Carroll Co.,  Md site.

 Thanks
