Married Margaret Knard b. 6 May 1820 possibly in Germany (maybe PA) d. possibly 11 June 1861 in PA
Children:
1. Matilda b. abt 1840 in PA

I am very sure that all the children were born in Union County PA probably right around Mifflinburg.

If I am right, Peter appears on the 1840 Union County PA census.
Males - 1 20 and under 30 (Peter should be abt 27)
Females - 1 5 and under 10 (Not sure who this is)
1 10 and under 15 (Possible sister)
1 20 and under 30 (Margaret should be abt 20)
1 50 and under 60 (Someones mother is living with them)
In 1850, Peter and Margaret are in Union County PA with the following children:
1. Matilda 10
2. John H. 8
3. Henrietta 4
4. Margaret Jane 1
In 1860, Peter and Margaret are in Union County PA with the following children: This time their name is spelled Sellers
1. Matilda 20
2. John H. 18
3. Henrietta 13
4. Margaret J. 11
5. Annie 2
Note Sarah does not appear with this family in 1860.

MARY - the letter you responded to was a SPAMMER letter - they send this
letter to thousands of discussion groups that have hundreds of members =
OVERLOAD on all servers and someone breaks down-
THIS is what Broke the old MAISER group - several answered these SPAM
letters and caused an overload.
I have never went to a CLOSED list - as Rootsweb does suggest - as I wanted
ANYONE to be able to post to it-
Therefore, we received the SPAMMER message AND you answered to 1000 or more
x 100 or 200 = ?
ROOTSWEB has suggested CLOSED lists (must be member) before you can write
message - CUTS down on this type of message going to TOO many and breaking
down systems.
SO, we are a closed list now and probably should have been before - I didn't
want anyone to have a hard time reaching us (new, inexperienced)
MARY, I wasn't going to write again, BUT, I believe you don't know what you
did? so, I wrote anyway.
I am very sorry this happened -
sorry, I yelled so quickly on SELLERS page-
BUT, sure didn't want anyone else'new/not understanding ' to respone to this
letter!
If you have ANY questions - whoever you are signed up with for Internet
Server -
write their support group and ASK questions regarding this.
WE need ALL Sellers and you have contributed!
I sound like a SELLERS mother that kid left home!
