LETTER by George Sellers 1823/ from Lee Bruch [lbruch@nwlink.com]
My great grandmother was Mary Jane Sellers ... her family and its preceding generation lived variously in Huntington County, IN and Marion, Grant County, IN and prior to that came from Wayne County OH. I have a copy of a portion of a diary entry describing George Seller's experiences in 1839 as a 13 year old moving from Wayne Co. OH to Huntington IN (travelling by canal, road, then cutting a road to the land they had acquired, then building a log house.

While looking through my Sellers kitchen cabinet file, I came across a
few other miscellaneous pieces of Sellers information from Indiana
that I've never fit into my line. [These notes were made early in my
family history research, before I had any intention of "getting
involved."]  Perhaps they will help someone.

I've not tried linking these families to the Howard/Madison County
family -- just picked up the information because it was in front of me
one time or another.  Some of the names fit the county history
information from Wilfred Sellers (1884-1924) & some do not.  I've not
done census information for intervening years or made any attempt at
verification:

Subject:  John Sellers

Surname: Sellers, McMullen, Marker, Ewing

"History of Huntington Co., IN" (Brant&Fuller:Chicago) 1887. Biosketches
of Huntington City and Township. p. 532

John Sellers, a prominent farmer of Huntington Township, was born in Perry
County, Ohio, January 4, 1822. He was the ninth of twelve children--six
sons and six daughters--born to John and Mary (McMullen) Sellers, both
natives of Pennsylvania, the former of Dutch, and the latter of Irish
descent.
He spent his early life in his native county working upon his father's
farm. At the age of twenty--or in 1842--he came to this county and for
some five or six years thereafter he did such work as he could find to
do in the way of chopping, grubbing, farming, etc. In 1848 he purchased
a trat of land, a part of which was cleared, in Clear Creek Township. There
he settled down and worked at clearing and farming until January, 1852,
when he sold his place and emigrated to California. After a brief period
of mining he turned his attention to the dairy and livestock business.
He returned to this county in the summer of 1859, and located where he
now resides in Section 2, Huntington Township. Since then his undivided
attention has been given to farming and the raising of stock. October 24,
1850, he married to Rebecca Marker, a native of Farifield County, Ohio,
born November 10, 1829. She was the daughter of David and Sarah Ann (Ewing)
Marker, the former a native of Maryland, of Dutch and Irish descent, and
the latter a native of Pennsylvania, of Irish descent. Mr and Mrs. Sellers
have born to them eight children, as follows: Almira, Louisa, John,
Commodore
W., Lillian, Elmer E., Addie A., and a son that died in infancy, unnnamed.
The second, Louisa, also died in infancy. Our subject and his wife are
members of the Presbyterian Church.

I know nothing about DNA testing in relation to genealogy. What would be the best test to take given the below? Pros/Cons? (I and my father are male)

I definitely spring from the Sellers of IN & OH and prior to that the Zellers of Tulpehocken Twp. PA. My grandfather's mother was a Sellers and we have a fairly well proven lineage back 2 to 3 generations before her. And think we know the line 3 or 4 generations before that, but it gets murky (so many various Zeller and Seller lines interwoven).

And I am a male Bruch in a direct line of male descendants fairly well proven back 7 generations to the first Bruch in the US. And I know that some of the Bruch family has had some DNA testing. Is one test possible to use to check both lineages?

LEE, thanks. Your BRUCH FTDNA project would help you. THEY Have same prices on their projects. Read the ftdna and ft mtdna papers. Do you have a sister or aunt, they may prove more on the female side. Are you talking Wayne Co, Oh and Huntington Co., IN families? We have a couple ZELLERS that have done dna tests, but not mt dna? Thanks for helping dna. marie, iowa
