MADISON CO, INDIANA (made in 1823
lays next to = lays on the west side of Delaware Co, IN)

Adjoining counties include Grant on the North; Tipton and Hamilton on the West; Delaware and Henry on the East; and, Hancock on the South. 
The old Court House burned in December of 1880, causing a great loss of records; however, the deed records escaped the fire, having been housed in a different building at the time.

MADISON CO, IN HISTORY
FALL CREEK TWN

The first large influx, though, was in 1820. In that year, a large group of family men traveled together from Clarke County, Ohio, to make land claims: William Curtis, Thomas and William McCartney, Israel Cox, Saul Shaul (see Mt. Carmel Cemetery page), Manly Richards, Moses Corwin, and Elias Hollingsworth.

Hi Marie,

Here is your Charles A. Sellers, M.D. listing. This is from "Indiana - One Hundred And Fifty Years of American Development" by Charles Roll, A.M. (Lewis Publishing Company, Chicago, 1931), Vol. III, p. 173:

Charles A. Sellers, M.D., is a loyal and progressive citizen who has been successfully established in the general practice of his profession at Hartford City, Blackford County, since 1911, save for the interval of his World war service as a member of the Medical Corps of the United States Army.

Doctor Sellers was born in Madison County, Indiana, January 14, 1875, a member of a family of five children born to Dr. John S. and Emma J. (Menefee) Sellers, both likewise natives of Madison County, where the respective families were established in the pioneer days. Dr. John S. Sellers was reared to manhood in Madison County, his father having come from Ohio and made settlement in that county prior to 1830, and thus having become one of the early pioneers of the county, where he obtained a homestead of unimproved land and reclaimed the same into one of the productive farms of that section of the state. Dr. John S. Sellers was graduated in the school that later became the present medical department of the University of Indiana, and in his profession he practiced first in Madison County and later at Montpelier, Blackford County, in which latter county he and his wife passed the closing years of their lives. Dr. John S. Sellers went forth in defense of the Union when the nation became involved in the Civil war, he having been a member of a regiment of Indiana volunteers and having lived up to the full tension of conflict at the front. In later years he perpetuated his association with old comrades by maintaining affiliation with the Grand Army of the Republic. He was a faithful and efficient physician and surgeon and was a man who ever held inviolable place in the popular confidence and esteem.

The public schools of Madison County afforded Dr. Charles A. Sellers his earlier educational discipline, and after his family removal to Blackford County he was here graduated in the Montpelier High School. He studied pharmacy and for seven years actively identified with the drug business at Montpelier. He then entered the Fort Wayne branch or division of the Indiana School of Medicine, which later became the medical department of the University of Indiana, from which latter he received in 1904 his degree of Doctor of Medicine. Thereafter he gave his attention principally to x-ray work until 1911, when he established himself in active general practice at Hartford City. When the nation entered the World war Doctor Sellers subordinated the work of his large and representative practice to the insistent call of patriotism, and in July, 1918, he volunteered for service in the Medical Corps of the United States army, in which he was commissioned a lieutenant. He soon went overseas with his unit, Base Hospital No. 113, and was assigned to duty at the embarkation center at Savinay, France, where he remained from November 1918, until February, 1919, when he embarked for the return voyage to his native land. After receiving his honorable discharge he resumed the practice of his profession at Hartford City, and virtually his entire time and attention have since been given to his substantial and important professional business here. The Doctor has membership in the American Medical Association, the Indiana State Medical Society, the Eighth (Congressional) District Medical Society, the Blackford County Medical Society and the Muncie Academy of Medicine, of which he was a charter member, and of which he was president one term. He has also served as president of the Eighth District Medical Society and of the Blackford County Medical Society. He was formerly coroner of Blackford County. Doctor Sellers is affiliated with the Masonic fraternity and the Izaak Walton League, and he and his wife are members of the Presbyterian Church in their home city. Mrs. Sellers, whose maiden name was Katherine C. Chapman, was born in Livingston County, Michigan. Doctor and Mrs. Sellers have two children: Gertrude E. is, in 1930, pursuing technical studies preparatory to entering the medical profession, and Betty Virginia, who remains at the parental home, was graduated in the local high school.

It may be noted that Dr. John S. Sellers, father of the subject of this review, was a son of Isaac and Emma (Troxell) Sellers, and the date of his birth was November 18, 1845, and he had kinship with the family of which the late Gov. Oliver P. Morton of Indiana was a member. The original American ancestor of the Sellers family was of Scotch-Irish lineage. His name was either James or Cassius M., and he settled in Pennsylvania prior to the War of the Revolution, the next in line of descent to Dr. Charles A. Sellers having been the son of this original immigrant and that son having moved from Pennsylvania to Kentucky, where the birth of Isaac Sellers occurred in the year 1812. Isaac and Emma (Troxell) Sellers, who gained pioneer honors in both Ohio and Indiana, became the parents of eleven children, and of the number Dr. John S. Sellers was the last survivor. Emma (Troxell) Sellers was born in Maryland, of Welsh lineage, her ancestors having been colonial settlers near Baltimore, Maryland, where they established residence about 1740. Mrs. Sellers' grandmother was reared in the home of Governor Burbank, one of the earlier governors of Indiana, and her marriage to Isaac Sellers was solemnized at Centerville, Wayne County, Indiana.

Dr. John S. Sellers was not yet eighteen years of age when, at Anderson, Indiana, in October, 1863, he enlisted for service in defense of the Union in the Civil war, he having been a member of Company B, One Hundred Thirteenth Indiana Volunteer Infantry, which was assigned to the Second Brigade, First Division, Twenty-Third Army Corps, at Nashville, Tennessee. With his command his was in active service in the Atlanta campaign, and he participated also in the pursuit of the forces of General Hood after that Confederate officer had met defeat at Nashville, Tennessee. Doctor Sellers continued in service until he was disabled by a severe scalp wound. After the war he studied medicine, under the preceptorship of Dr. N. L. Wickersham, at Anderson, Indiana, and later he completed his studies in the medical college at Indianapolis, where he was graduated as a member of the class of 1887.

Well, that's it - probably more than you wanted to know. Hope that there are not too many typos. As to the type of scanner, I don't know - I have saved some information on scanners - just want to get the best one I can (you know, that does the most dots).

P.S. - Were your Sellers ever Quaker? Regards,

Rochelle Rowlette

Out of my often-faulty memory, seems to me when I was in Franklin(Johnson Co) IN in the mid-1960s & doing some newspaper "stringing,"the publisher of the Franklin Evening STAR was one Robert Sellers, noknown relation.

174 - Sellers, Isaac L., age 27, male, white, born IN, farmer, died Nov. (1869?), Typhoid Fever. (not real sure on the middle initial on Isaac, could be a L, Y, or T) Cemetery - Madison County, Indiana West Maplewood #12, Anderson Twp. Isaac Sellers: 1836-1862 I believe this Isaac Sellers is connected to the Jonathan Sellers family who lived in Anderson Twp. Jim

JIM, thanks. Not my Jonathan SELLERS born 1833 IN or his brothers.
Altho I have a George Sellers 1834 IN with unproved death not on 1856 /60 census.
My cemetery records also show ISAAC SELLERS 1836/1862 and I do NOT see or have him connected. What happened to Wallace Sellers 1856 ? Incase of typo/engraving error.
However, we have the CW James Sellers here that I don't have linked either.
Can't think or see anything else. Thanks. marie, iowa
