Michael SELLERS--Widow granted pension Mar 12, 1853, cert #W-9298
Michael SELLERS enlisted April 1776 in the 8th Virginia Regiment
and served two years.  An affidavit dated Jan 13, 1853, by widow
Catherine, age 90, declares she and her husband moved to Bracken
Co, KY after they were married, settling on Little Bracken Creek.
After her husband died June 4, 1836, she went to live with her
son, Philip, in Kenton Co, KY, where she now lives.

A copy of a marriage record showed Michael SELLERS and Catharine
DILLMAN were married Dec 20, 1789 by Rev James SCOTT in Bourbon Co, KY

Other afficavits indicate Michael SELLERS died leaving widow,

Catherine and seven children, George SELLERS, the oldest son,
"now about 70", "born May 25, 1836 about 10-12 days before his
father died";(I believe this means

Philip SELLERS, "about 65, next oldest", Catherine
(Sellers) PERRY -- these three living in Covington, KY, Sarah
(Sellers) MCDONALD living in Augusta, KY; Polly (Sellers) SHANE
living in Bracken Co., KY; Henry SELLERS living in Bourbon Co, KY;
and George SELLERS living near Ripley, in Brown Co, OH.

A government record has notation that Michael was in the Battles
of Brandywine, Germantown and Monmouth.  At the time of enlistment
he resided at Woodstock, Shenandoah Co, VA; was a native of Germany,
and came to America when young, settled in Lancaster Co, PA and
married the daughter of Henry DILLMAN.

I Belive Spring 1776 is correct - Just went back thro the pension Papers
And
copies of same on Film. Not a typo, as I have it printed in on the file,
But,
didn't find Any Proof.
Possibly on reading the  statements of the 2 yrs service, I subtracted the
2
from 1776 and wrote down the 1774. But, I also believe the 1776 is Correct

So will list the date as Spring 1776 as that is the way it is on the
government form =
I previously listed enlisted as possible 1774, Because of the 2 yr Prior
Service = which kinda sound like on one of the depostions - But, after rereading
I don't think so, although don't know Why it was listed that way?

SELLERS web site has some great data. Talking of ? JOHN MICHAEL SELLERS
of south of Winchester,vA,it was mentioned he joined Capt Croghan in 1774
and the 8th Va.  I'm looking at an application of Elihu CHILCOTT saying
he enlisted in Capt Wm Croghan's  8TH Va company on 5-27-1776. [1774
would be LORD DUNMORE'S War Va army marching into Ohio-iF 1774 was not a
typo].  Chicott enlisted for 1 year under CRGHAN; but was recruited by
Capt Mathais HITE,and served 2 years. Transfered soon from the 8TH VA TO
1ST VA,and later,the 3rd Va.    sERVED AT WHITE PLAINS [N NEW YORK CITY]
;BRANDWINE AND GERMANTOWN [TRYING TO KEEP THE BRITHISH FROM ENTERING
PHILDELPHIA FROM THE SW; AND AT MONMOUTH-WHEN THE BRITISH MARCHED FROM
PHILA BACK TO NEW YORK.
JOHN MICHAEL SELLERS widow applied from n KY.
Perhaps SELLERS and Chicott HAD SOME SIMILAR SERVICE

     I have finally obtained a copy of the complete Revolutionary War
service (not pension which
several of us already have) file for (John) Michael Sellers who
married Catherine Dillman.  I tried
abstracting some of the cards for part of 1777, so those not familiar
with the info could get the
idea.  I then listed anything of significance for 1778 and 1779.  Not
a particularly enlightening file,
but we do now know that he was a Drummer and Fifer and that his name
was indeed John
Michael Sellers.  I am also interested in  McDaniel files I mention
at the end.  I am ever hopeful of
finding my connection.  Stuff in brackets mine.

     The record pretty much goes on an on like this with a Muster
Roll and a Pay Roll card for
(probably) every month.  Need to see if there are gaps.  Have noted
only added info below.

Muster Roll for May and June 1777 dated Aug. 5, 1777 says promoted
June 1st
Muster Roll for July dated Aug. 5, 1777 lists him as Drum'r & Fifer
appointed June 1 [This "job
description" seems to alternate on cards with Pvt. which was his rank.
]
Muster Roll for Nov dated Dec. 5, 1777 lists term of enlisted as for
war and Remarks: sick
Muster Roll for Dec dated Jan. 7, 1777 lists him as on furlow

     In 1778 some of the cards change to say Capt William Croghan's
Company of the 4th, 8th,
and 12th Virginia Regiment of Foot, Regiment Commanded by Col. James
Wood.  Others say the
4th VA with same men in charge.  Still others show 8th VA Regiment
Commanded by Col.
Abraham Bowman.  In late 1778, it switches again to Regiment
Commanded by Col. John
Nevil.  A footnote on one card reads:
     About May 1778, the 4th, 8th, and 12th Virginia Regiments (1776-
1778) were incorporated
and designated the 4th, 8th, and 12th Virginia Regiment until about
September, 1778.--R.&P.
410,200.
Roll [no other designation] of Sept 9, 1778 Remarks: Light Infantry.
A few others say "on
Command" or "On Light Infantry."  During these same months of July
and August, 1778, he is
listed as at Camp White Plains. This is the first mention of location.

     In 1779, cards refer to Captain and Captain-Lieut. Leonard
Cooper's Company of the 4th VA
Regiment Commanded by Col. John Nevill.  In 1779, there are further
mentions of locations.
They are
     Jan 1779 Remarks: Commd [indicates on Command]
     Feb 1779 Middle Brook  Remarks: Furlough
     Mar 1779 Camp Middlebrook Remarks: On furlough til Apr 13
     Apr 1779 Camp Middle Brook Remarks: on duty
     May 1779 Camp at Smith's Clove
     June 1779 Camp at Smith's Clove
     July 1779 Camp at Ramapough
     August 1779 Camp at Ramapough Remarks: Smiths Clove
     Sept. 1779 Camp at Rammspaugh [could be Rammapaugh] on duty
     Oct.  1779 Haverstraw
     Dec.  1779 Camp near Morristown

     I will have another look, but I believe that this is the last
entry.  I have to work on finding out
exactly where Michael was in 1779.  I do have records of a John
McDaniel/McDonnal/McDonald
who was in the 4th,  8th, and 12th VA (predominantly the 8th, in
different companies but
sometimes Commanded by Col. James Wood) who was at White Plains and
Camp Middlebrook
during at least some of the same period as Michael.  There is still
another John McDaniel in the
3rd, 5th, and 7th (predominantly the 5th) who was also at White
Plains and Camp Middlebrook.
Doubt that there is a connection to my McDaniel family, but it is an
interesting coincidence.

Have been looking for some clues to John Michael SELLERS Virgina past.  Not
much so far, but I found a couple of interesting bits of trivia.  Learned
that the 8th Virigina was known as the “German Regiment,” and that many
recruits were persuaded by a sermon give by John Peter Gabriel Muhlenberg
(1746-1807) who preached from Ecclesiates (There is a season….) at
Woodstock, Shenandoah Co on January 28, 1776.  Supposedly, he then took off
his clerics robes to reveal his military uniform which inspired many to
sign up.  Wonder if Michael heard the preaching.

Several sites detail this fact.  You can click on the following (as an
example)

http://www.shentel.net/chamber/html/about_woodstock.htm

=

In the late 1770s, John Muhlenberg was pastor at an Anglican church located in the heart of Woodstock. As a famous story of Muhlenberg has it, at conclusion of his farewell sermon on January 21, 1776, Muhlenberg threw off his clerical robes to reveal an officer's uniform beneath and shouted, "there is a time to pray and a time to fight..." With that declaration, the story says he then called for volunteers to join the 8th Virginia Regiment under his command. and the next day led out 300 men from the county to form the nucleus of the Eighth Virginia. Muhlenberg's unit was first posted to the South, to defend the coast of South Carolina and Georgia. In early 1777, the Eighth was sent north to join Washington's main army. Muhlenberg was made a Brigadier General of the Virginia Line and commanded that Brigade in Nathanael Greene's division at Valley Forge. Muhlenberg saw service in the Battles of Brandywine, Germantown, and Monmouth.

Marie and All,

Since John Michael Sellers was in Shenandoah Co VA at the start of the REV
War, I’ve been looking for any sign of SELLERS in that area.  I found one
man in Augusta, then Dunmore County, Shenandoah’s antecedents who was
surnamed Sellers twice in a land records and again in a Dumore residents
list; however, more searching makes me believe that he is the same man
always listed as Keller/Kellar elsewhere.  His family seems to have become
Keller.  On the outside chance that they began as  SELLERS and should be
counted as Sellers, I copied out the following:

1775 DUNMORE COUNTY RESIDENTS—From Richard Campbell’s list of 1775

 I believe the most conflicting or 'hard' to understand statements
were in
the affidavit of Richard SHOCKLEY on Jan 8, 1853 who had known Catherine ca
25
years, ca 1827/1828 in Bracken Co,KY and knew Michael and knew he was a
soldier
in Rev by statements made by Michael and upon general report among those
who
were acquainted with him in Virginia before he emigrated to KY. That
Michael
SELLERS lived many years in Bracken Co,Ky on Little Bracken Creed - that
they
raised a large family of children, all of whom are above the age of 21, the
youngest Mrs Catherine PERRY being at least 35 yrs of age: That said
Michael
Sellers died in June of the year 1836, and that he never applied for or
drew a
pension to the knowledge of witness: That he cannot state positively the
day on
which he died, but that he did die in June of that year, he knows from the
fact
of his oldest child having been born on the 25th day of May 1836, the birth
of
which child took place some 10 or 12 days before the death of said SELLERS.
====
Else where in Michael SELLERS rev war file, it is proved he died JUNE 4,
1836.
I BELIEVE it MEANS, but DOES NOT SAY = GEORGE SELLERS, oldest son of
MICHAEL AND
CATHERINE SELLERS was born MAY 25, his BIRTHDAY being 10 or 12 days before
his
father Michael died on June 4, 1836.
====
Best documentation of the kids ages are on the census we have posted on the
kids
we found,except for two of the daughters who we Know were alive in 1853 and
living in KY! There must be changes between the 1850 and 1860 census, that
we
have discovered? yet?

Can't really give you a page number.  From the Valley Forge site, go to the Muster Roll search page.
For me, it was a two-step process to get there.  Had to click "Muster Roll"
twice.  At that page, you can search by soldier's name, state, or regiment.
I did the first and last.  For Michael Sellers, the following is listed:

Note that entries of some other men is even more brief.  I found the
presumption that the group wintered at Valley Forge in the entry for
(Captain) William Croghan.  I have not gone back to my info on Michael's
service record to see if anything in it conflicts with that assumption.  I
know that it does not mention Valley Forge.
