   I am looking for any information on Sherman Sellers born July 24, 1866 in
Pulaski County born to Riley Sellers and Francis ?.  Sherman died August
6, 1924 in Dugger, Sullivan County, IN.  He was married to Martha Strunk.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks.


COOKERLY - Thanks - We have some Sellers working on this county - don't
see your info/names-
We have many counties laying close and others made from same and sometimes
we need to search these also-

Where/When did SHERMAN SELLERS 1866 marry Martha STRUNK?
When/Where kids or first child born=
WHEN to INDIANA- ?
We don't even have a Sullivan Co, IN page - which lays on the
Crawford/Clarke Co,IL border and next to VIGO, CLAY,GREENE, KNOX CO, IN
counties.
BUT, we can make a page IF SELLERS are there!

IF you could send SHERMAN/MARTHA STRUNK SELLERS kids names/ages -
married who/where/when - YOU could Help Other SELLERS connect to their
families.
Thanks, marie, iowa

Hi Marie,

I have some additional information on Sherman Sellers & Martha Strunk. In the 1870 Pulaski County census John R. Sellers, 35 yrs, Rebecca F., 34 yrs listed with the following children: Mary M., 11 yrs, John, 8 yrs, Sarah J., 6 yrs, Hiram S. 3 yrs. (I believe Hiram S. is Sherman). I don't know the date that Sherman and Martha Strunk married or exactly when they went to Indiana. However, the 1900 census for Vigo County, Indiana, Otter Creek Township had the following information:

NameDOBAgeBirthplace

Sellers, Sherman7-186633Kentucky
Sellers, Martha3-186931Kentucky
Sellers, Leonard1-18955Kentucky
Sellers, Mayme8-18972Kentucky
Sellers, Harry12-18981Kentucky

The 1920 Census for Sullivan County, Indiana listed:

NameAgeBirthplace

Sellers, Sherman52Kentucky
MarthaW50Kentucky
Lenard V.S25Kentucky
HarryS20Kentucky
MinnieD18Indiana
ChesterS14Indiana

I believe that Martha's parents were Emerson Strunk and Nancy Jane Tucker and that Martha's date of birth was March 1, 1869 in Pulaski County.

I have the marriage certificate for Mayme Sellers. It shows she was born August 14, 1897 in Pulaski County, her present residence was Dugger, Indiana (Sullivan County), Father: Sherman Sellers born Pulaski County, KY, Mother: Martha Strunk born Pulaski County, KY, both living in Dugger, IN. She married Gilbert Kluesner born April 25, 1892 in Perry County, Indiana son of Fred Kluesner (deceased) and Jane Critchfield living in Dugger, IN. They married on August 1, 1914 in Sullivan County by Robert Kirkham, J.P.

Minnie Sellers (my grandmother) married Arthur Wilson son of William Wilson and Catharine Murry in Vigo County, IN on March 4, 1922 by James P. Madigan, J.P. Minnie died September 2, 1985 in Clinton, Vermillion County, IN. Arthur Wilson died November 10, 1962 in Indianapolis, Marion County, IN at the VA Hospital. Sometime after Arthur died Minnie remarried to Peter Voyzey. I'm not sure when but Peter died before she did.

Chester was married to Georgia ? (don't know what her last name was. Then he married Freida ? (not sure what her last name was). Chester died October 20, 1981 in Terre Haute, Vigo County, IN.

I don't have any information on Leonard and Harry yet. When I find out something on them I will pass it along.
