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. By 1880,he was dead,and she was in very north LEWIS TWNSP,west of GEORGETOWN 4 MILES. There ,her ELMER KIRKPATRICK m IZORA KELLUM,and he rented the PINKHAM farm between AMELIA and Bantam,Clermont Co Oh,some 14 miles west. Mahala sellers kirkpatrick LIVES IN THE AMELIA METHODIST cemetary.

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??

JAMES
KIRKPATRICK,GRANDFATHER OF JAMES KIRKPATRICK WHO M 1839 MAHALA SELLERS,
WAS JUST EAST ACROSS THE MONOGHALIA IN ROSTOVER TOWQNSHIP,WESTMORELAND CO
PA AS JAMES KILPATRICK.

I used to own the "1790 PA CENSUS" but I LOANED IT,AND DID NOT GET IT
BACK. I WWRITE IN MY BOOKS,.AND WASHINGTON CO PA [INCLUDED GREENE] HAD
MANY ,MANY UNDERLINED. FAR MORE THAN ANY OTHER COUNTY. ALMOST EVERYBODY
CAME FROM SOUTH OF AT PITTSBURG TO READING PA LINE.  JAMES
KIRKPATRICK,GRANDFATHER OF JAMES KIRKPATRICK WHO M 1839 MAHALA SELLERS,
WAS JUST EAST ACROSS THE MONOGHALIA IN ROSTOVER TOWQNSHIP,WESTMORELAND CO
PA AS JAMES KILPATRICK. IT'S POSSIBLE HE AND ALEXANDER HILL WENT TO
PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH TOIGETHER-ONE ROWING THE MONOGHALIA.       NOW,BACK
TO ISAAAC SELLERS,WHO MOVED TO BRACKEN CO KY 1789 ERA. [WAS MASON TIL
1796-97.] And it was said he was in ST CLIR TOWNSHIP,SW PITTSBURG FROM
1773.  AND SOLD CARNAHAN 400 ACRES ON SAW MILL RUN 3 1\2 MILES FROM
PITTSBURG,IN 1784. [I THINK HE ALSO HAD A TRACT OF CHARTIERS CREEK].
ANYWAY" VA COURT RECORDS IN SW PA" 1775-80  BY BBOYD CRUMRINE,
-CONSOLIDATED EDITION OF 1981 BY GEN PUB.INC,BALTIMORE, INDEXES NO ISAAC
SELLERS SOLLERS ZOLER,KELLER. You would think,especially during the
1775-76 year when the courthouse was at FORT PITT-FOR WEST AUGUSTA
DISTRICTVA, THAT HE WOULD SHOW UP. SHERIFF didn't like to travel fafar to
serve a potential jury members. 1776-1780, the pursley run,of 10 mile
creek sellers were not within the bounds of this book,as their present
greene co pa homes then fell within monoghalia co wv,which lost many
records in a 1796 fire. I'm bettin the CHALKLEY'S "CRONICLES OF THE
SCOTCH -IRISH IN AUGUSTA CO VA"  VOL 3  "DISTRICT" COURT LAND SUITS,MIGHT
SHOW ISAAC SELLERS,AND OTHERS.

My wife's widow MAHALA SELLERS KIRKPATRICK was also in LEWIS TWNSP
  BROWN
  CO OH 1880,though completely across the township from Columbia Street [RT

  Mahala did have a son run a store at Smith's Landing,Oh,AND THAT son
  buried a couple KIRKPATRICK infants at RTS 222-133 south of the SHAFER'S
  FEE CITY aka FELICITY,OH. Again, there were usually,,,,and earlier, more
  SELLERS ON THE BRACKEN CO KY side of that interstate highay called the
  OHIO RIVER. We are now used to the Ohio with high leve dams. I can
  reemember it with low leval damns,m ut not with no dams. Sometimes it was
  fordale,,,,,,and there were once ferries at ABERDEEN,,,RIPLEY,LEVANNA,
  BOUDES, RURAL,,, CHILO,NEVILLE, MOSCOW, PT PLEASANT, NEW RICHMOND,

Sellers Kirkpatrick would be buried,agenim the Amelia Oh Methodist cem
1900 era,. 

My own Methodist REV JESSE JUSTICE,minister at MT ZION,RT 756

There was a family known as SELLS near MT ZION.  Intermarried with the
Baum's who were once BUCKS CO PA

HERMON - This would be extraction from VAL BURGETT WILL of 1829 ?
And This Would be Valentine SR? or perhaps we need Ages with these BURGETS as we should do with our SELLERS!
marie, iowa

the data from Chancery Court  Bk #4 pg 323-332.  Brown County, OH
Archives.Georgetown,  OH 26 Dec 1996. GJ

Actually, there are several more Valentine BURGETTS.  The three I
referred to
were the ones dying in the1820-1830 time frame. GENNY



Well,I did sleep soundly a few hours. There are several pages,and I'm
still on the
1st. Both VAL Jr and Sr died in 1829. Sr after Jr. And it took years to
settle Sr's estate. I suppose these pages are part of an debate on the
estate settlement, but I haven't read
that far.I think Michael Sellers may be on one bank,and Leonard Sellers
just across th e river. 

Is Valentine Purgitt and wife,Magdeline of Patterson's Creek,
Hampshire Co,WV the same as Valentine and Mahala Burgett,
of very s BROWN Co,Oh by 1802. Their Ohio lands across Evans
Run from Capt Wm Vause's Va Military bounty land. Capt Vause's
 bro-in-law and nephew,JACOB and Ephriam Sodowaki-Sandusky,
married those EVANS gals. Mahala Burgett is called mother of
Val Jr, b abt 1773. 

        From:
             HJZM01A@prodigy.com ( SHERRY MAZZETTI)

HERMON,
     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.
SHERRY



Consensus seems to be so far that Magdeline and Mahala are not 1. Wish I
STIL HAD MY 1790 Pa census index. Val  had [left?]  a dau in Penna .My
own
BROWN -WELLS-SAPP-SAPPINGTON-BAXTER colony were on HARMON'S
CREEK,where BURGETTOWN,Pa devoloped just in nw WASH CO,PA, but no
VAL BURGET  indexed in Crumrine's "History of Wash Co,Pa"
www.google,com
hits for            BURGET genealogy     say many BURGET'S-BURKHART'S,
ETC
at STOYSTOWN,Pa area,which is where my BROWN-WELLS-SAPPINGTON's spent the
1762-72 years.
Hampshire co list says,1782,VAL PURGET OF WASHINGTON CO [MD a mile north]
.1778 oarts of washington Co have nothing like val BURKETT PURFITT
HAS A BURKHART,AND ANOTHER
1776 WASHINGTON CO,MD FROM FREDRICK CO MD.    NORTHERN PARTS OF BOTH
COUNTIES VERY GERMAN
ANDREW KIRKPATRICK,THE SQUATTER AND NEIGHBOR OF VAL BURGETT SR,WAS THE
HUSBAND OF ALEX HILLS DAU.   JAMES KIRKPATRICK III ,OF ANDREW,OF JAMES I,
WAS THE HUSBAND,1839,OF MAHALA SELLERS

HERMON - We May NOT have been connected to BURGETS before OHIO -
It appears his first child is born 1800/10 .
I see BURGETS in Blair/Bedford Co, PA on an index-
They may have come one way and us another -
ALTHOUGH there is a BURGETTSTOWN in Wash Co? , PA =
Perhaps they are connected, but, I don't see ours till
Hamilton,Clermont,Adams,Brown Co, OH - Thanks for Sharing and Genny Also,
Helps probably More than it shows right now! marie, iowa
========
HERMON, we need this info , but GENNY, could answer?
Where did the MAHALA , mother of ? come from?
Did We know or close to BURGETTS before 1800?
