History of Richland County, WI


James A Sellers, one of the early settlers of Richland county, was born June 22, 1817, in Perry Co., Ohio, where his early life was spent, obtaining his education in the common schools. In 1844, he was married to Caroline Melick. They are the parents of nine children --- Jonas M, Mary I, John W, William A, Naomi A, Lucy E, Emma A and Bessie. Mrs. Sellars died April 7, 1882. Jonas is now married to Nora Downs; Mary is the wife of J D Allbaugh; J W is married to Mary J Cushman, and Lucy E to Marion Allbaugh. In 1855, Mr. Sellars moved from Knox Co., Ohio, to Green Co., Wis., wintering there in 1856 and 1857. In 1859, he came to Richland Center, and in August to the place where he now resides, town of Bloom, and entered 120 acres of land on sections 26 and 27, which he has reduced to ninety-two acres. He also owns a house, lot and grist mill in the village of Spring Valley. Mr. Sellars has been a deacon in the Methodist Episcopal Church since 1869.
