first
settled in Shenandoah Valley, Va., and that the Name was
Zeller??????????and
our line came from one of these????????????
I have not had time to print out the instructions you recomended to print
out

and
my apologies if I am out of order.
Thank You,

I know that Jacob Helm, the Father of Catherine Helm , who married Henry

George), and his Wife Catherine (Helm) Sellers migrated to Pike and Adams
Counties in Illinois.  Moses to Daviess County , Indiana and my Line,

Marie,
Just a side note about my up-coming response to your e-mail on 10/18 (re:
SELLERS TREE)
I do have some information that I have researched that will clear up or
at least sort out some things.
I also have been given much information on all the Siblings of my "Henry
Sellers Jr from Lawrence Co ", Ind but was given to me as a "Preliminary
Study Of the sellers Family" of Cumberland County, Pa.
I am waiting for my Daughter in law to come Type all this  for me and put
in a File in  my Computer, so that i can forward it on to the Group and?or
to you.
So I haven't forgotton, just need some time & help to get it typed and
put together.
I also have searched the 1870 census that will sort out some things and
that I will also send.
Thanks,
Edward L. Sellers

    Marie,
Thanks for giving me some direction on my "Sellers Tree" inquiry.
I have a lot of Info that will clear up many questions, but will have to
get
it together first.  I will keep this e-mail and send as soon as possible.
AS an example , You show in the 1860 Census - ELIZABETH 12 IN*
This is my Greatgrandmother, but the name is Eliza Jane Sellers b. ca
1847/8.
The apparant reason my Grandfather's name is Oscar Franklin SELLERS is
because he took her name because Eliza Jane it seems was not married.
Oscar
was reared in Daviess Co in the home of Charles f. Graves.  I found a
marriage in Martin Co for Eliza Jane Sellers on Dec 15, 1891 to a George
C.Cutsinger, listed as her 1st and his 2nd ( which I found also) (that
being the case, then the 3 Children were  born before the 1891 first Marriage.
I found that all 3 children were listed on many years at the Poor Assylum
and Eliza Jane also.  On one Census at the poor Assylum it lists Oscar & Ida
M. as Taylor & josephine as Mitchell, which satisfies all the rumors but NO
marriages with these names.  I have not a trace Of Eliza Jane or George
Cutsinger after this wedding.  She had 1st Josephine, 2nd Ida M.(NEVER
FOUND
_ since her Poor Assylum days) , then Oscar.  (There is so much more
about
many of the ones you listed that I can provide later, but just wanted to
give
you an Idea of just a small area.  It could get quite lengthy and I don't
know how involved I should get or should I just report  Census info,
etc.)

I also have a lot of info that was given me from research done by other
Relatives on most all the other Children of Henry Sellers Sr  & Catherine
(Helm) Sellers of Cumberland Co , Pa., but not further back than Henry
Sellers Sr.. Many od these went to Pike Co., Ill  & Moses to Daviessa Co
In.

I welcome your candid comments on what i've written and appreciate any
suggestions.  Again my opologies as I am fairly new at the Internet
thing.
THANKS

        Re: SELLERS

Marie,
I am working on the Typing, but slow.
I have not searched Pa, but have info given me by distant relatives who
did,
but have no info beyond (older than)Henry Sellers Sr. and it appears
Henry Sr
must have died in Pa (1830's)and then his Wife Catherine (Helm) Sellers
migrated on to Indiana(she had a Daughter Susan and Son-in Law,Dennis
Call,
already here) , then on to Pike Co, Ill, .  This Info is "Titled" >>
"Preliminary study of the Henry Sellers Sr & Catherine (HELM) Familie of
Cumberland Co. Pa.  From this, I have info on all the Children of Henry
Sr as
they migrated to Indiana, and many on to Pike Co , ILL. I will send that
later (When I get it typedPif you would like.

For now this is what I found on the 1870 Census.  But must explain>
Henry Sellers Jr M. 1st >Mary Ann Hastings in 1844 in Indiana.  From this
m.
they had 4 children.
1.  Caanan (died in civil War in Tenn)
2.  Eliza Jane (my greatgrandmother and the one creating all the
Mystery)(Many years at Poor Assylum, Martin co Ind) Had 3 Children by 2
different Men(it seems) before her 1st marriage Dec 15, 1891 to George C.
Cutsinger) Have no Trace since this Date of either of them)
3. Henrietta (Epileptic) Died at Poor Assylum
4.  Simpson b.1852
Mary Ann dies in 1857,early in year
Henry then marries in Jul 1857 to Sarah Hunter & they have 5 Boy
Children,
including Henry "ROBERT" b. in 1873, so he is not on the 1870 Census

Note Wesley is John Wesley and Frankie is Frank
Special Note.  MISSING Is Eliza Jane, would be approx age 22/23. I have
looked in surrounding Counties with inlaws and cannot find her in 1870.

NOTE:  I have a copy of a handwritten Ledger by her Grandfather Arthur D.
Hasting who was the Co or Twp Trustee and had a Position also in their
Church
Elder or Preacher, that wrote in 1872 where Eliza Jane (called Louisa
also)
was "TURNED OUT" from that  Church. I next found her (Eliza Jane) at the
Poor
Assylum 29 Aug 1873, and in 1874 with girl Child (Josephine?).
Thanks again.
Ed Sellers
P.S.   I still do not quite understand how all this is put together and
functioning.  Is there any membership cost or is there an encouragement
of
some donation that is a part of the scheme of things.  Help me out here,
Marie, if you would.
