The following references to Samuel Sellers' land came from an issue of
Sellers Letters. According to Cumberland County, PA tax records he had
100 acres of unwarranted land, it also said "poor." I think they were
referring to the quality of the land and not Samuel's financial status.
Samuel's brother, Nathaniel, also had 100 acres of land. By 1778 the tax
records on Nathaniel only indicated 74 acres, 1 horse, and 24 sheep.
1779, no land and by 1780 he was living in Kentucky.
"On January 31, 1767, in Cumberland County, PA, Samuel Sellers deeded
land to David Magan which had been assigned to Samuel sellers by Thomas
Finley - originally from Edward Shippen, Esq. To Thomas Finley, being a
lot in the town of Shippensburg. It is believed this deed between Samuel
Sellers and David Magan was a mortgage in "consideration of debt." This
lot measured 64 feet 4 inches in length by 257 feet 4 inches."

"On May 8, 1774, Samuel sellers, 'farmer of Hopewell township in the
county of Cumberland in the Province of Pennsylvania' conveyed to
Alexander Richardson, a weaver, and William Leggit, a farmer, for the
sum of 300 pounds, "ac certain plantation and tract of land situate in
the township of Hopewell…. Adjoining lands of Francis Campbell and John
Brownfield…. Being 'the same improvement and tract of land which Thomas
Finley had conveyed to Hugh Brady who conveyed it to Samuel Sellers
April 12, 1762.' Samuel Sellers conveyed it to John Brownfield who
conveyed it back to Samuel Sellers on April 11, 1774. It was written May
8, signed by the Justice of the Peace on May 9 and recorded June 18,
1774 in Cumberland County, PA."

"On the day the deed mentioned was recorded another document was signed
in which Alexander Richards, (Richey in Samuel's will), a weaver, and
William Legget, a farmer, both of Hopewell township, Cumberland County,
PA conveyed back to Samuel Sellers this land until it was paid in full -
a motgage. 250 pounds to be made in payments on each May 1st, beginning
May 1, 1775 through 1782. This was recorded June 20, 1776."

Regarding land records in Westmoreland, you may want to look in Bedford
County, PA records. Fairfield township was a part of Bedford from about
1771-1773 when Westmoreland was created. It also may have been a part of
Cumberland before that. I'm not sure when the township was created.
Prior to 1771 most of western PA was Cumberland County.

Also, John Hinkson lived for a while in Hopewell township, Cumberland
County, PA. This may be where John Sellers first became acquainted with
him. Hinkson owned 300 acres of land there from about 1764 to 1769 when
he purchased land in Fairfield township. According to a deposition of
his son, Hinkson returned to Ireland and married then back to PA about
1765.

Fairfield Township is located in Westmoreland County, PA. It is the area
where the town of Ligonier is located. It consists of the area lying
between the Laurel Hills and the Chestnut Ridge (east - west)  and
Ligonier and the Conemaugh River (north - south). Enos McDonald owned
land near the Conemaugh River as did Hinkson, Wood, Sellers, Haggin and
others. I've never seen any land record of Enos McDonald or John Sellers
just reference to their land in other deeds. John Hinkson's plantation
was at Squirrel Hill an old Delaware Indian town located about 10 miles
northwest of Ligonier.

In Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania Deed Book A. 1773-1783 there were
some transactions that mentioned an ENOS MCDONALD. Could these McDonalds
be McDaniels? The Sellers, Hinkson, Wilson, Lemmon, and McMillan
families from above settled around Harrison and Bourbon Co. Kentucky.
