DAVID, DANIEL OR DONALD SELLERS All three names appear in this one file.
One paper in the file reads.....a printed list of 1852 of Rejected and Suspended Rev. claims, page 20, shows David SELLERS, of Guyaborough, Interval Co, Nova Scotia, application suspended in 1836 for want of proof and papers withdrawn and not replaced by Hon. J. CUSHMAN in June 1837.
A letter, dated July 14, 1846, Beaver Dan, Dodge Co, Wisconsin Territory, was written by Malcom SELLERS in behalf of his father. He state his father had been living in the Province of Nova Scotia since the war. He asks for reconsideration in the matter of a pension for his father who clain had been rejected on grounds of his apparently escaping from a prison during the war, and then siding with the British.
A long well-written letter, signed Donald SELLERS on Mar 28, 1839 denies sympathy with the British and tells of the hardships of being imprisioned and his reasons for leaving. He wrote, "The reason that my name was inserted David SELLERS instead of Donald was, I suppose, as I had no English and my Captain no Gaelic"
Another paper indicated he was in Col. LAMB's Regiment, Capt. MCREE;s North Carolina Company, but this paper also shows he was "deceased many years" and is dated June 28, 1836. (Possibly not the same person)
