Printers broken,so can't print instructions..Mahala SELLERS M 1830 JAMES KIRKPATRICK ON a BROWN CO OH river hilltop just about across from the BRACKEN-Mason Co Ky line. MASON CO KY settlerment started in 1784,in forts.BRACKEN CO about 1789,in forts, mostly on the BRACKEN-MASON CO line. 100+ families came down from 10 mile creek,GREENE CO SW PA,1789-91. My thought is that they were really hoping to have 1st choice to the rich lands on the MIAMI'S IN OHIO, but 2 armies out of CINCINNATI vs northern Ohio indians, were defeated in 1789 and 1991. Sooo ,they camped on the poorre lands of BRACKEN, which was apart of Bourbon til ? 1787. And Bourbon co was more interior in Ky,and safer. So,when the indians became too active every spring,there likely was a retreat to Bourbon. My thoughts are that the SELLERS were some\all of the GERMANS FOR WHOM germantown ,KY WAS NAMED. It sits on the BRACKEN CO-MASON CO LINE. 1-2 MILES EAST OF IT WAS FEAGIN'S FORT. 1-2 MIULES WEST WAS ALEX BUCHANAN'S FORT. AT THE MOUTH OF LEES CREEK-DOVER,KY, WAS LEES CREEK STATION [ARTHUR FOX'S STATION- JEREMIAH WASSHBURN'S FERRY- JOSEPHUS WATERS FERRY. Bracken Creek was next west,with it,and another entering the Ohio at THE BIG BOTTOM AT AUGUSTA,which must have had a fort [LEACH'S?], Likely from GERMANTOWN south is drained by the NORTH FORK OF LICKING RIVER. North forth,and main Licking ARE RUNNING PARRALLEL TO THE OHIO past s BRACKEN.
MAHALA SELLER M JAMES KIRKPATRICK,1839,within view of Ohio River and MASON AND BRACKEN CO Ky,in very s BROWN CO OH. 1840 and 1850 CENSUS,THEY WERE WITH HIS FATHER,ANDREW,in Milroy,Rush Co IN. 1860 AND 1870 ,THEY WERE BACK IN MID BROWN CO OH-FRANKLIN Twnsp,wiith,1870,a 2nd home in GEORGETOWN,FOR THEIR ELDER KIDS TO GO TO town school.

Raised amid QUAKERS,ANYWAAY. Allen ECKART recently,seems to purposely be making surname errors in hiis works. Even if JOHN SELLERS WAS THERE AND CAPTURED,THE va land commisioners were due,and many not natives were at those 2 forts that day. And they were new stations. I would no more than 1-3 years o old.

HERMON, hate to repeat so MUCH of your message, BUT, 2-3 differant questions= AND, making a seperate page on some of the SELLERS parents and trying to LINK kids/children - THE John SELLERS born 1750 or before had land in BOURBON CO, in 1796 that he had made improvements on in 1776 (SCOTTS PAPERS OF BOURBON CO,KY,ETC) TRYING to trace land - have the early land grants on So Licking (1786 memory) THIS JOHN SELLERS had land in VIRGINIA area , I am sure- some KIDS, born Virginia ? = UNLESS, in the greene/wash co, pa - which was called Va, for a while??

Actually, there are several more Valentine BURGETTS. The three
were the ones dying in the1820-1830 time frame. GENNY
My unabridged lists MAHALAH as a biblical name; however, I could
not locate place in BIBLE, even with a search. There is a very old
book called HITCHCOCK'S BIBLE NAMES DICTIONARY (think part of a
larger biblical analysis) pub. about 1869/74. Thought Wheaton
College had it online, but I could not get anything. Found a
discussion of name "Mahala." Woman says her ancestor, named Margaret,
was aka Mahala. Respondent stated prob. a semitic root--final
consonant choice of scribe. May be that Mahala was used as name and
"nicname" for a family of female names including Mary, Margaret, etc.
Will keep looking. Think this is your source, however.
Interestingly, dictionary (an old unabridged) lists
MAHALA/MAHALY as an American Indian word--Marisposan/poss. Penutian
family meaning "woman" or "squaw." Two comments--tribal link is to
Northern California and do NOT think this is origin of your Mahala.
Also dictionary is most politically incorrect. Native Americans will
frankly tell you today that "squaw" refers to female genitals. Most
polite equivalent of calling woman a "squaw" would be to call her a
slut. You can imagine the impolite ones.
