My marriages only go to 1850 - probably Montgomery Co, In has them , Altho,
I did Not see
the family of TEMPLIN in 1850/60 - close county? Should read marriages
The ISAAC SELLERS born 1787 PA (on the 1850 Mont Co,IN census died here
with a will naming son JAMES and also a son IRA born 1813 Butler Co,OH and
also a son
David = on cenus born 1836 IN
1820 could be Hamilton Co,Oh - lays next to Butler Co
1830 looks like Butler Co, Oh
1840 Mont Co, IN - But, We have a James SELLERS here in 1830 born 1795KY
This May be a second marriage? Don't believe I ever found his marriage.
OR read ages of ALL on All census- Should Do!
Big gap in ages of kids - IF these are the kids named in his will.-
MUCH work needs done on these families - If same SELLERS or two different?

Is there anyone in Cinci who would be willing to lookup a death record
for ALBERT SELLERS?
He was born in 1889 in Indiana, and probably died in Cincinnati during
the late 1920s. He left a wife Anna, and several children. Any info
If anyone is aware of (or can locate any) poetry by Albert Eldon
Sellers, I would greatly appreciate finding it. This would help me
learn more about the man, who wrote during the 'teens and 1920s, and
whose writings are probably on the shelves of local libraries, esp. in
Ohio and Indiana.
Thanks for your help!
