lying on a branch of "Perkeowmen" (Perkiomen) near Roel's land in Bucks
County, the warrant being addressed to Benjamin Eastburn, Surveyor General
(Warrant file book S, 1 to 180, Warrant 5. Land Office Harrisburg, Pa.)

28, 1769.  He is styled as "Philip Henry Seller of Rockhill Township Yeoman in
the County of Bucks and Province of Pennsylvania" although he signs it as
"Philip Henrich Soller".  He bequeths certain money due him by his son
John to his wife Catharina and also an additional sum from the sale of his real
and personal estate which he orders to be sold.  He orders the residue of
his estate to be equally divided among his ten children, to wit, Philip, whom
he mentions as eldest son, Leonard, Henry, John, Paul, Peter, Jacob,
Elizabeth wife of Henry Burggy (Berkey), Magdalena, wife of Henry Brunner, and
Margaret.  He appoints his son, John, and his son-in-law Henry Burggy
executors.  Witnesses, Andreas Reith, Samuel Detweiler and Abraham Stout."

Darstone, Elizabeth wife of John Brunner, since deceased leaving issue,

Hittle, Susanna, and Hannah wife of John Geisinger; that said intestate
left
three tracts of land situate in Upper Saucon township, one containing 30
acres 126 perches, 7 acres and 75 acres, respectively.  The Court ordered
an
inquest which returned Dec. 16, 1809 (Liber 8, p. 229), finding the land
incapable of division without prejudice, whereupon the Court ordered that
as
John Sellers and George Sellers, two of the eldest heirs, lived in North
Carolina, notice of the proceedings should be advertised in The Aurora and
The Northampton, according to law.  Subsequently (Liber8, p. 246), the
Court
ordered that as notice had been published, the value fixed by the inquest
should be approved and, as none of the other heirs appeared, Philip
Seller,
son of said intestate appearing and being willing to take the real estate
at
the valuation fixed by the inquest, the Court so ordered, subject to the
payment of the dividends of the other heirs.

"The subsequent conveyance of part of this land is recorded at Easton in
Liber G, Vol. 3, p. 380.  The deed was dated June 10, 1811, and recites a
conveyance by Philip Sellers of Upper Saucon township and Susanna his wife

John is one of Philipp Heinrich Soller and Catharina's children
These are the children of John Sellers and Anna Johnson from Sellers
Family
of Pennsylvania, Edwin Jaquett Sellers.  Philadelphia, PA 1925.

ABRAHAM SELLERS. "...The age of sixty-five attributed to him [Philip
Henry
Seller] was due to that age having been given him by his grandson
Abraham
Sellers in a letter to his son Cornelius Sellers but it is evident that
the
age therein given was an error.  The letter was as follows:
                                                Dec. 10, 1827.
     The Catalogue you wish me to give you I fear will not be very
correct
in
every respect, but, as far as my memory serves me, I will give it.  My
grandfather, Philip Henry Soller was born in Germany in a town called
Weinheim near the City of Manheim on the Bergstrasse in the Palatinate.
As
near as I can trace it, about 97 years ago he left his native country
and
with a wife and four children and came to Philadelphia, from there he
went
to
Skippack and stayed a short time  after which he bought a tract of land
of
200 acres on the Branch  about  one mile below where Thomas Sellers now
lives.  There he lived until his death.  He died at the age of
sixty-five,
leaving a wife and ten children, 7 sons and three daughters.  The names
of
his sons were Philip. Leonard, Philip Henry, John (who was your
grandfather),
Paul, Peter and Jacob.  The daughters were Elizabeth, Magdalena and
Margaret.
 My father settled in Hilltown on the farn where Frederick Fluck now
lives
and there he died at the age of fifty-five, leaving Mother, three sons
and
one daughter.  Two daughters and one son died in infancy, being seven in

all.
 The names were Abraham, Samuel, John and Elizabeth.  The other three
were
two Hannahs and Amos.
     As to my mother's family I know but little, being all dead before
my
time.  Her father's name was William Johnson.  I think he came from
Holland.
He lived at Skippack, a respectable farmer.  Your grandfather Bodder
came
from "Dutch Country."  When he married he settled in Hilltown,  He died
at
the age of 73 leaving a wife and four children, two sons and two
daughters,
their names being Jacob, John, Sophia and Catherine.  Your grandmother
Bodder's maiden name was Regina Ditor [or Detor], likewise from Germany.

                                                Abraham Sellers
(additional matter by Cornelius Sellers.)
     My father always said our original name was Soller, as above.

"In May of 1861 Bayard Taylor presented the home guard of Kennett Square
with
a cannon.  Cast at the Pennock Foundry at State and Willow Streets, it
became
known as "Old Ben Butler".  The cannon was fired to hail Union victories
in
the Civil War.  At the end of the war, the citizens purchased enough
powder
for a hundred shots.  Ninety were fired in the borough after which the
cannon
was hauled to Cedarcroft where, with great pageantry, the remaining ten
shots
were fired.  The cannon was placed in front of Elmer Sellers' livery
stable
on North Union Street where old Civil War soldiers held Memorial Day
services.  When the borough building was being built across the street,
Sellers donated the cannon to the town and it was embedded in the brick
base
in front of the building. It was originally equipped with wheels and a gun
base."

(Location of the borough building is the northeast corner of Broad and
Linden
Streets.  I have a color photo of Old Ben Butler in it's brick base, in
front
of the borough building taken in 1996.)
