Joist Hite purchased large tracts of lands in unsettled Western Virginia and encouraged and introduced Scotch-Irish settlers from the south central part of Pennsylvania to the Shenandoah Valley.

The first settlement was near Staunton, Virginia in 1736.
The western part of Virginia was then known as Augusta County and began filling up with the York Co. (PA) Scotch-Irish.

Augusta County Virginia Chancery Suit
1842-023
Instituted 1840
Heirs of Philip Bushong et al VS Administrator of Isaac Sellers et al

To the Honorable Lucas P. Thompson, Judge of the Circuit Superior Court of Law and Chancery for Augusta County, humbly complaining. Shews unto your Honour:
Your Orators Philip, George W. Washington, John, Catherine, Sally, Elizabeth, Mary Ann and Daniel Bushong, infants under the age of 21 years by Elizabeth Bushong, their mother and next friend, humbly represent:
   That they are the children and Heirs at Law of a certain Philip Bushong, deceased, late of Augusta County, who departed this life in the year ---- intestate, whereby his real estate descended to them.
   That the said intestate in his life time time purchased from a certain Isaac Sellers, a small parcel of land, supposed to contain about 20 or 30 acres, part of a tract of about 80 acres which he owned adjoining the plantation of said Bushong. The price agreed upon was $8 per acre, to be paid within such reasonable time as would suit the convenience of the parties; A deed of conveyance to be made with general warranty, on payment of the purchased money and the said Bushong to pay interest on the money while it should be in his hands. The said Sellers was to be at liberty to cut 3 acres of the timber at his discretion at any time within two years from the time of said purchase.
   The said contract was verbal, but has been partly executed. The parcel purchased was laid off from the rest of the tract, by a line agreed upon and marked, and possession was delivered to the said Bushong, who in his lifetime cleared and enclosed the greater part of it. The said Sellers, as authorized by the contract, cut and took off the greater part of the timber.
   Since the death of the said Bushong, the said Sellers has refused to carry out said contract completely into effect by conveying said land to your Orators, though the purchase money with the interest therein has been tendered to him on the part of your Orators, by their said mother and next friend.
   In tender consideration of the premises, and that your Orators are without relief except in a Court of Equity, they pray that the said Isaac Sellers may be made a Defendant to this Bill and compelled to answer the same on oath. that he may be required to convey the said land to your Orators by a good and sufficient deed with a general warranty. That they may be granted in the possession thereof and That such other and further relief may be greater then as is equitable, etc.

from MICHAEL
Michael Sellers <muckham11@yahoo.com>

Hi Marie,

I'm very familiar with this suit as it involved Isaac Sellers and family, whose line ran paralell to my own.  Isaac's grandfather, John Sellers (1735 - Mar. 1804), was an older brother of my 5 great grandfather, Adam Sellers (1742 - Apr. 1821).  I was born, raised, and grew up about 10 miles or so south of where Isaac Sellers' farm was located.  He is buried in what is known as the "Sellers Cemetery" located there on Isaac's former property.

Anyway, the suit stated that the verbal contract between Philip Bushong and Isaac Sellers was only partly executed and that after Bushong's death Isaac had refused to carry out the contract completely.  Well, Isaac didn't "refuse" ... he had simply died.  Isaac Sellers died on February 11, 1839, at the age of 41, and the suit against him was then brought to court in 1840.  I firmly believe he died due to some kind of accident but the evidence and reasoning for that is strictly circumstantial.  Isaac Sellers purchased 285 acres of land in Augusta County from the widow, Rebecca Golladay, and her two sons, William and Isaac, on October 29, 1827.  He then purchased another tract of land adjoining the 285 acres from Peter Fitch with the date of deed recorded as February 1, 1839.  Isaac Sellers then died exactly 10 days later on Feb. 11, 1839.  Again, the evidence is only circumstantial, but I believe Isaac Sellers likely died suddenly due to some kind  of accident.  In any case, his death in 1839 was the reason why he had not carried out the verbal contract he had with Philip Bushong.

Hope that helps,

Michael Sellers

Eldest son, Jerome H.B. Sellers is shown living in the Bell household for the 1850 Census.  He married Margaret Rachael Bell, August 24, 1854.

Again, this shows 6 of the children of John and Catherine (Brown) Sellers.  Only Elizabeth is missing.  Born in 1823, marriage and death records for her are unknown.  I can only surmise and/or guess that the Frances shown in the 1850 Census with John is a 2nd wife.  No evidence supports any children between them.
William Sellers is listed as age 9 for the Census. He was born in 1840 and had not yet turned 10 by the time the information was gathered for the 1850 Census.
This all brings me back to the original problem of determining if the "female 30/40" listed with John for the 1840 Census is Catherine.  If so, the long-lost gravestone reported in 1936 at the Lutheran Church in Churchville, VA is probably hers.  Keep in mind, the gravesite at the Lutheran Church is no more than 1 1/2 miles from the family farm owned at the time by John Conrad Sellers ....

FROM FRANK SELLERS

Sellersgen@aol.com

>From the Mennonite newspaper Herald of Truth, dated August 1, 1896.
GROVE.-On the 24th of April, 1896, in Augusta Co., Va., Arthur Sellers,
beloved son of Bro. Isaac and Sister Lizzie Grove, aged 1 year, 2 months and 21
days.
"Little Arthur was too fair,
In this cold world to stay,
So God in mercy called him home,
To dwell in endless day."

=

from MICHAEL

That's from over in my (former) neck of the woods, though I've always known the Mennonites to be just across the county line in Rockingham county.

The father, Isaac Newton Grove, is buried in the Union Chapel Cemetery just east of Weyers Cave, Augusta County, Virginia. Its located on Route 773 about 4/10s of a mile south of the intersection with route 769. Wife "E. Elizabeth Grove" is buried with him.

Isaac Newton Grove was the s/o Isaac Grove and Catharine Wenger. I believe that wife "Lizzie" was Elizabeth Landes. They were married December 23, 1873, and I think they had upwards of 13 children. Unfortunately, I do not know where the "Sellers" came from for son Arthur's middle name.

Dates on their gravestones read:

Isaac N. Grove: b., 1851 - d., 1930, Aged 79 years
E. Elizabeth Grove: b., 1854 - d., 1911, Aged 57 years

A daughter, Anna Bell Grove is buried beside them:

Anna Bell Grove: b., Mar 25, 1878 - d., Oct 2, 1885
'Aged 7 yr 6 mo 8 da: D/O I. N. & E. E. Grove'

Arthur Sellers Grove mentioned in the Mennonite newspaper is buried next to his sister, Anna Bell.

Arthur S. Grove: b. Feb 4, 1894 - d. Apr 24, 1896
'Aged 1 yr 2 mo 20da: S/O I. N. & E. E. Grove'

Hope that helps someone ...

O CHRISTIE I could use some help from you regarding that book big time..
Looking for HUFFMAN  HOFFMAN SELLERS SIEBERT  FRY  MAIN etc  can you really
look for these.?

John Huffman  wf?  unkown had (Henry Huffman b1740's ? m probably third time
Catrouche Fry Frye..  2nd was Mary Provator. but we think first wife from
Shanandoah Valley area before migrating this direction).

These are interlinked families from VA to sw PA..
SIEBERT big time in Berkeley to HUFFMAN..  Sellers m Henry's sister. Main
bought sold land in both places from them, think related also.

The mystery involving John Conrad Sellers, Catherine (Brown) Sellers and Frances Sellers is beginning to be unraveled.
By total luck, I came across a gravesite listing for the Hebron Presbyterian Church in Augusta County, Va.  Among the listings were the 3 following gravestones:

Sellers, Frances S.   d  6 Apr 1891 82 yr w/o John Sellers
Sellers, John    d 19 Jan 1872 75 yr
Sellers, Sam'l A.   d  5 May 1864 29 yr 2 mo 9 da Killed in Battle

The 3 gravesites are for John Conrad Sellers, his 2nd wife Frances Sterrett and his son, Samuel Addison Sellers.
John Conrad Sellers was born March 11, 1797 and died January 19, 1872.
According to family records, the Sam'l A. Sellers listed above was Samuel Addison Sellers and he died May 5, 1864 at the Battle of McDowell during the Civil War, which coincides with the church records.
I have asked for a lookup on the gravestones for the actual inscriptions found on the gravestones in case they are different than described in the church records.
The finding of the gravestones pretty much concludes that John Conrad Sellers did marry a 2nd time, and it was to Frances Sterrett, especially since his son Samuel Addison is buried along with them.

Is it possible to somehow get copies of the land deeds or at least to get the dates for them?  Would be a great help in trying to pinpoint when John Conrad Sellers and Frances Sterrett were married AND when John Conrad bought the present Sellers family farm in Churchville, Augusta County, Va.
The gravestone of a "Catherine Sellers, Consort of John Sellers" at the Lutheran Church in Churchville, Va seems more and more to be that of John Conrad's first wife.  I had located a transcription for it which was described in 1936.  My dad went to the cemetery this past weekend and was able to find it.  However, its now broken in 2 pieces and partially buried.  The date of death is May 17, 1842, which pretty much corresponds with no more children being born to John Conrad past 1840, and the gravesite is no more than 1 1/2 miles from the Sellers family farm that John Conrad originally owned.  Again, copies of the land deeds or at least the dates for them listing either John Conrad and Catherine or John Conrad and Frances Sterrett would be greatly helpful and appreciated.
Mary Koontz Arrington's info concerning Catherine Brown and her father, John Brown, is/was slightly incorrect.
Dr. John Brown was born in Bremen, Germany, on July 21, 1771.  He came to America in 1798.  He died January 26, 1850 and is buried at Frieden's Church Cemetery just outside of Bridgewater, VA.  His wife, Elizabeth (Fall) Brown was born March 23, 1777 and died December 5, 1857.  She is also buried at Frieden's Church Cemetery next to John.  Dr. Brown preached at Peaked Mountain, Rader's, and Frieden's, among other places, during his tenure.

Also, the attached email address is at my work.  The home email is mikeamber@lvcm.com

Can't speak for all of the land patents you presented.  However, I can
eliminate several of them from being of any relation to your elusive
Ignatius Sollers.  Not sure of the origins of Ignatius Sollers, but the land
patents that follow are of Sellers who were originally ZELLER and were of
German descent.

1)  LAND OFICE PATENTS AND GRANTS
     SELLER ELIZABETH WIFE OF SELLER, JOHN
     7 JULY 1763 AUGUSTA COUNTY [VA] 330 ACRES
     ["see Seller, John and Seller elizabeth his wife. 7 July1763"]
      patents No. 35, 1762-64, p. 269

Note:  This record is for Elizabeth (PERKEY) Sellers and her husband, John
Sellers.  "John Sellers" German name was 'Johannes Zeller', and he was the
son of Heinrich and Anna Maria (FECHTER) Zeller.  John was born in Germany
in 1735, emigrated to America with his parents in 1738, landing in
Philadelphia.  They eventually migrated to Virginia circa 1750.

2)  SELLER JOHN AND SELLER ELIZABETH his wife
     7 July 1763 AUGUSTA CO.[VA]
     330 ACRES ON A BRANCH OF SHANANDO RIVER
     PATENT NO. 35, 1762-64, P.269 [I do not know why the 2 but according
to wording first the 2 of them then the other headed by Elizabeth, so did
John die??]

Note:  The first record, headed by Elizabeth, is for land which was formally
her father's.  When he died, she controlled much of it.  Thus, John
controlled it along with Elizabeth by virture of their marriage.

3)  SELLER HENRY 10 MARCH 1756
> AUGUSTA CO. [VA] 130 A. ON PINE RUN BETWEEN SHANANDO RIVER AND THE PICKED
MOUNTAIN.
> [probably peaked] PATENT NO. 32 1752-56 P 683
> [look at dates and patent numbers to compare with others]
> SELLER HENRY 10 MARCH 1756 AUGUSTA CO
> 100 ACRES ON THE NORTH SIDE OF SHANANDO RIVER
> PATENT NO. 34 1756-62
>
> SELLER HENRY 30 AUGUST 1763 AUGUSTA CO. [VA]
> 205 ACRES BETWEEN SHANANDO RIVER AND THE PEEKED MOUNTAIN. PATENT N. 35
1762-64 P.374
>
> SELLER HENRY 3 AUGUST 1771 AUGUSTA CO.[VA]
> 193 ACRES BETWEEN THE PEEKED MOUNTAIN AND SHANANDO RIVER. PATENT NO. 40
1771-72

NOTE:  All "Henry Seller" records listed are for 'Heinrich Zeller', my 6th
Great Grandfather.  He was born in Germany in 1701.  Was father of John
Sellers listed above.  The '3 August 1771 Augusta Co. [VA]' record for 193
acres is argued as being a land record for his son, Henry Seller, Jr.  This
is still debateable as to whether the record is for Henry Seller the father,
or for Henry the son.

Don't know if any of that help other than to maybe eliminate it from your
search for Ignatius.

Happy Hunting!

MAKE SEPARATE PAGE OBITS

Obituary for David Phillip Sellers, son of William A. and Esther O. (Arnold) Sellers, Sr., printed in "The News Virginian" newspaper, Waynesboro, Augusta County, VA, on Monday, September 3, 1990 (Page 2, Column 1)

NOTE: Last name mistakenly printed as "Cellers" instead of as SELLERS.

David Phillip Cellers
STAUNTON - David P. Cellers, 67, a former resident of Elizabeth Miller Garden Apartments, died Sunday morning (Sept. 2) in King's Daughters' Hospital.

He was born June 14, 1923, in Greensville, N. C., a son of Arnold and Esther A. Cellers.

He served with the U.S. Coast Guard during World War II and was a member of Staunton Moose Lodge 1635.

Surviving are five children, James Crosby of Crozet, Elsie Price, of Richmond, Marva Pisco of Staunton, Penny Macklin of Rocky Mount, N. C., and Phyllis Shull of Waynesboro, a brother, William Cellers of Gainesville, Ga.; a sister, Jane Herring of Charlottesville; 16 grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.

He was preceeded in death by his wife, Mildred Jones Cellers.

A graveside service will be at 11 a.m. Wednesday in Green Hill Cemetery in Churchville, conducted by the Rev. Stanlee D. Kauffman.

The family will receive friends Tuesday from 7 to 8 p.m. at Hamrick Funeral Home

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Gravestone for David Phillip SELLERS located and photographed on July 4, 2004, in Green Hill Cemetery in Churchville, Augusta County, Virginia. Name is clearly inscribed as DAVID PHILLIP SELLERS (JUN 14, 1923 - SEP 2, 1990). SSDI information also confirms spelling as SELLERS. Family history emails by his brother, William A. Sellers, Jr. in October 2000 also spell last name as SELLERS.

David's daughter mentioned in the Obit, Marva PISCO, is also buried in Green Hill Cemetery with husband Albino R. PISCO: Albino R. PISCO (June 16, 1930 - April 20, 1990) Marva Crosby PISCO (Feb. 8, 1943 - Oct. 22, 1998)

I cannot determine the parents of William A. Sellers, Sr. and am wondering if anyone either connects to this family or if we already have documentation of this line.

Would appreciate any and all help in identifying this line.

Thanks!
