         James Harvey SELLARS / SELLERS
 

My James Harvey SELLARS born ca. 1838-40 in OH (per census)
married in Fulton Co. IL, Susanna FLAKE on 21 Mar 1861.  They
were later in Lake Co., CA.
Does anyone know who his parents were, or how to find them?
I have checked many census records in OH and the closest match
is for an Elias Sellars family in Richland Co., Butler Twp.; in 1850.
This family included a wife Ellenor, a son James age 10 and a
John age 7, and five other children, Malinda, Agnes, Joseph,
David and Mary. My James did have a brother named John.
        If you don't have information about my James, do
you know anything abut this Elias Sellars family so that I could
rule them out?
        I have searched for this family for a long time, nothing
seems to work.  Thanks for your help.

Marie and others,
Thanks for the interest in the James Harvey SELLARS family.
 I will post the descendants for three generations for him.  I have
 no other information on descendants other than those of his
daughter Anna who married Theodore Richard
 BRIGHTENSTINE.  I am also searching for Theodore's
ancestors. Susanna FLAKE's ancestry follows:

Everything that I have found indicates that James Harvey SELLARS/SELLERS
was born
in Ohio, and the 1880 census indicates that both of her parents were born
in Ohio also.

Would like contact with  descendants, and anyone who has any information
regarding this
family.   I have the FLAKE side, but have had no luck finding James Harvey
SELLARS place
of birth or his parents.  Your help will be appreciated.

The James H. SELLERS family has been located on the 1870 federal census
in Auburn townsphip, Placer Co., CA. Their youngest child, Anna was age
1 born CA. Does anyone have any record of this birth? Family lore says
she was born in Kern Co., but cannot find any record of the family there.
I have very little information on this family, and would really appreciate
any information regarding them. Others in the family were: Susan 30, his
wife born IL, Jane 8 MT, John 7 MT, Wm. 3 CA. James H. was 32 born in OH.
