I hope this helps someone. For some of you who seem close to this line there is still a chance with an unidentified line from Philip (1724-1808) (it would be good to fill in some gaps as well as add more information to lines. I have more information, this is my direct line.
Just browsing through "things" and noticed I never answered your message to
me in December about information on John Sellers. I apologize.
Here is what I have in general:
Hans Georg Soller and ? had
Hans Paul Soller
Hans Paul Soller and Anna Maria Schneider had
Hans Paul Soller, Hans Adam Soller, Hans Georg Soller,
Anna Maria Soller, Anna Rosina Soller, Hans Heinrich Soller,
Anna Maria Soller
Hans Adam Soller and Margaretha had
Anna Katharina Soller, Philipp Heinrich Soller, Anna
Philipp Heinrich Soller and Catharina had
Philip Sellers, Leonard Sellers, Philip Henry Sellers
John Sellers, Paul Sellers, Peter Sellers, Jacob Sellers
Elizabeth Sellers, Maria Magdalena Sellers, and Margaret
John Sellers born 1731; died Jan. 7, 1783, aged 51 years and three months (on
headstone Indian Creek United Church of Christ, Telford,
Montgomery Co., PA, USA and Indian Creek Church register).
In the information I have there is the contents of a letter
from Abraham Sellers to his son Cornelius Sellers, dated 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 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, (this age
is an error) 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 farm 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 in 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."
signed by Abraham Sellers
>From the information in the letter, I carefully pieced together and came up
with the following, see if you agree:
John Sellers married Miss Johnson, together they had:
Abraham Sellers, Samuel Sellers, John Sellers, Elizabeth
Hannah (a) Sellers, Hannah (b) Sellers, Amos Sellers (these
Abraham Sellers and Miss Bodder had
Cornelius Sellers (Abraham is Cornelius' father)
Mr. Bodder and Regina Ditor had
Miss Bodder (Cornelius' other Grandparents?
I have not tried to verify my conclusion yet.
I will post this to the Sellers' List as well, maybe someone else can use it
to verify something as well. I hope you do not mind and I apologize for not
getting back to you sooner.
