Am seeking any information regarding parents, brothers, sisters,
etc., of a
Jane Sellers (possibly Sellar, Sellars). Jane married Enoch Barlow in
Bourbon County in 1804 and they lived briefly in or near Georgetown before
moving to Hendricks County, Indiana, where they raised their kids, died and
Awesome! You have made my day and month.
I only recently returned to my search for Jane. She was my
great-great-great-great grandmother. She became a minister for a small
church northwest of what is now Avon, Indiana, and she was credited in one
notation that I've seen as having established the county's first Sunday
school. I have a listing of all of her children with Enoch. And I have
pictures of their graves, alongside each other, in the Barlow Cemetery. I
have quite a bit of information on some of their children, and a little on
some others. Be very glad to share it with you. In fact, you can get most
of what I have at this web site, located within the Barlow Clearinghouse:
My line from Enoch and Jane is their son Harvey Rice Barlow, who
Milton, who had Albert P., who had James Thomas, who had me (James Edwin).
I have son, James Andrew, 10.
I suspected that John might be Jane's father, but had not pursued
my hunt for my Barlow line.
Your name really captured my interest: Marie was my dad's mom's name.
was a Hollingsworth (close to Hollinger). And your middle name Sellers.
Thanks for your response. Would love to exchange info. Somewhere
notations on several Sellers marriages that occurred a little before and
after Enoch and Jane's. Now I can check to see if I have some of her
brothers and sisters noted.

Back in October, I posted my first note on this list. I asked if
anyone had ANY knowledge of a Jane Sellers who married my g-g-g-g-g
grandfather Enoch Barlow in 1804 in Bourbon County, Kentucky. Within
days I had my answer and a history lesson on Jane's family. A hearty
thanks for solving a mystery that no one in my remaining family could
Below is a list of their children, per an Oct. 28 suggestion by Marie
Sellers Hollinger. I have additional info on many of these children.
