FREDERICK SELLERS 1796/1885

Contributed by
olear15@ibm.net

I'm pasting in an outline of Frederick SELLERS descendants here. I will
go back and find census, histories, etc and forward as I find time, as
I'm thinking this is what you were referring to as 'documented info'.
Keep hoping there may be other 'cousins' out there to connect with.
Susan Hallock and I had lost track of each other for many years and came
together in working on this project. I feel like I've a new sister. I've
truely learned the value of 'family' in working on this with her and
have a pat answer for anyone who asks why I 'waste so much time on those
dead people'. Thanks for all your support to us Sellers researchers.
You're a real fountain of knowledge on this family name!!

Less then 2 years ago Susan and I knew names of David and Sarah (our
direct ancestor) and their children and a very little about their
grandchildren. Now we have so much more, having just found info on the
last of David's siblings. It's been a frustrating but thrilling search.

This is the marriage record of Frederick Zellers (Friedrich Zoeller)
and Charlotte Schmidt. Getting these records was a co-operative effort
between Debby, Brandon, Marilyn and I. Brandon found the records at
LDS and Debby copied and got the translation done from the German into
English. Both Brandon and Debby contacted me through your list, from
the Frederick Zellers/Sellers will I posted. I wanted you to know that
because I think you do a good job and want to encourage you to keep up
the good work. Also, Frederick seemed to use both the Zellers and
Sellers name but his children seemed to have used just Sellers. On
Frederick's tombstone the name is Zellers.
