Phebe Ransdall is probably the daughter of Sanford Ransdell and Barbara Ann
Sellers. Barbara Ann probably died before 1847 and Sanford Ransdell is
married to a Mary by 1850 and has a son, John Ransdell born 1849.

(Is this a sister to Marcus de Lafayette Sellers?)

Barbary Ann Ransdell married Seth Anderson on 02 January 1847, Vigo County,

From:
             "cookerly" <cookerly@netins.net>
 the 1900 census for Vigo County,
Indiana, Otter Creek Township had the following information:

Name                    DOB             Age             Birthplace

Sellers, Sherman                7-1866          33              Kentucky (where 1880?)
Sellers, Martha         3-1869          31              Kentucky
Sellers, Leonard                1-1895          5               Kentucky
Sellers, Mayme          8-1897          2               Kentucky
Sellers, Harry          12-1898         1               Kentucky


The 1920 Census for Sullivan County, Indiana listed:

Name                    Age             Birthplace

Sellers, Sherman                52              Kentucky
Martha          W       50              Kentucky
Lenard V.               S       25              Kentucky
Harry           S       20              Kentucky (ca1900)
Minnie          D       18              Indiana
Chester         S       14              Indiana

I believe that Martha's parents were Emerson Strunk and Nancy Jane Tucker
and that Martha's date of birth was March 1, 1869 in Pulaski County.

I have the marriage certificate for Mayme Sellers.  It shows she was born
August 14, 1897 in Pulaski County, her present residence was Dugger,
Indiana (Sullivan County), Father: Sherman Sellers born Pulaski County,
KY, Mother: Martha Strunk born Pulaski County, KY, both living in Dugger,
IN.  She married Gilbert Kluesner born April 25, 1892 in Perry County,
Indiana son of Fred Kluesner (deceased) and Jane Critchfield living in
Dugger, IN.  They married on August 1, 1914 in Sullivan County by Robert
Kirkham, J.P.

Minnie Sellers (my grandmother) married Arthur Wilson son of William
Wilson and Catharine Murry in Vigo County, IN on March 4, 1922 by James
P. Madigan, J.P.  Minnie died September 2, 1985 in Clinton, Vermillion
County, IN.  Arthur Wilson died  November 10, 1962 in Indianapolis,
Marion County, IN at the VA Hospital.  Sometime after Arthur died Minnie
remarried to Peter Voyzey.  I'm not sure when but Peter died before she
did.

Chester was married to Georgia ? (don't know what her last name was.
Then he married Freida ? (not sure what her last name was).  Chester died
October 20, 1981 in Terre Haute, Vigo County, IN.

I don't have any information on Leonard and Harry yet.  When I find out
something on them I will pass it along.
