  (The following taken from a chapter in the book entitled
"NOTABLE WOMEN OF PENNSYLVANIA", edited by Gertrude Biddle and Sarah
Lowrie (Phila, 1942) and is from a short biography of a French woman
named Clothilde de Valois:

Clothilde de Valois de Reni, a young countess, fell in love with and
married a scholar who resided across the French border in Zurich,
Switzerland.  He was Jacques de SELLAIRE - known as VON ZELLER of Castle
Zellerstein, Zurich.  Clothilde was in her teens when they married.  They
fled from France with their children after the revocation of the Edict or
Nantes and went to Holland, where they apparently stayed for some time.
They, shortly after their son's marriage in Holland, the ZELLERS went to
England and "the Lady Clothilde" as she was recorded there, placed herself,
he children and her husband under the protection of Queen Anne who later
gave them protection when they chose to begin life anew in the new world.
But by this time, Jacques had died, either in London or before their ship
arrived at New York in June 1710.

These French immigrants, together with many of the Palatinate Germans found
little welcome along the Hudson River.  They continued further north to the
Dutch-English province at Schoharie where they again found rejection.
After an invitation from the governor of Pennsylvania, Lady Clothilde Zellers'
eldest son, with an Indian guide, journeyed down the Susquehanna and to
what is now the Lebanon Valley.  Jean Henri Zeller returned to report to
his mother and her party that this was the place for them.  And after
building rafts and obtaining provisions for the trip, the contingent set
forth, arriving at the Mill Creek Region, not far from present Newmanstown
and the larger settlement of Womelsdorf in 1723.

It was here the Zellers built a fort to protect themselves and their
neighbors.  They procured deeds for land from John, Thomas and Richard
PENN.  Later they helped start the first church in the area, rebuilt their
log fort in 1745 with stone outside and plaster inside and carved over the
door the emblem of their faith and also the family crest as knights of the
Holy Roman Empire.

It was about this time that the name ZELLER was Germanized to Heinrich
ZELLER from Jean Henri ZELLER, and although his father was from Switzerland,
because this family lived with the Germans in a German settlement, they
have become known as of German descent.

Joseph Sellers, b. Franklin Co. NY

        From: GINNY
             "English" <english@c-zone.net>

While exploring the Georgetown Divide and American River Canyon, near my
residence in Cool, El Dorado County, California, near Sutter's Mill (the
first gold find in California), I ran across a quaint cemetery deep in the
forest.  One of the tombstone was that of Joseph Sellers.

The tombstone was handcarved from granite, which probably came from the
granite mines in this area, and says:

Joseph Sellers
A native of Franklin Co. NY
Died 2/10/1876
Aged 28 years, 5 mos & 28 days

I don't know, but giving the history of the area, it could very well be
that Mr. Sellers was a gold miner as most of the old graves in this area were
either miners, trappers, etc.

Maybe somebody is looking for Joseph and I was able to help!

Thanks,

Ginny English

I wasn't too sure Where the article started that pertained to this
pictures, but including the two paragraphs preceding same, just in case.
marie, iowa
============
And who are all the other people? A few pictures have names of
photographers in Germany, some in New York City. They date from
the late 1800s to a birth announcement dated July 5, 1930 for a
Richard DEBAR (or close to that). One postcard-type picture is
addressed to a Mrs. Christian KOCH in Bellemore, Long Island.
The message says, "This is my husband's picture."

As I feared, the paper on which these pictures were pasted
hardly exists anymore, but the glue has held up perfectly --
many pictures are pasted back to back and won't come apart
without destroying one of them. So, if anyone can give me more
information about these people, I will either pass the picture
on if possible, or make a copy.

Does anyone recognize these names? Verene, Leonard and Ethel
HOLLIGER; Doris and  Dora SELLER; Billy, Mildred, Luie and Rita
MEICHNER; Anna WOLF; Elizabeth SCHAFER; Mrs. PFEIFER; Mrs.
WACHTER; Gustave LAICHINGER; Charles METZGER; Lizzie KOCH; Mrs.
BECKER and her brother (?), Marie ZUPP; Rosie, Olive, Frieda and
Charlotte HICKS; Harold (Happy), Laur, Josie and Stella SOMAINE;
Evelyn BOOKER or BROOKER. There is a beautiful wedding picture
labeled Mr. and Mrs. Olive HICKS. Since Olive HICKS appears as
a girl in a few pictures, this is probably her maiden name. I'd
love to share the pictures and find out more about these people.

==================

The assertion that the real name of "Lady Clothilde de Valois" was Anna Catherine is one I haven't heard before. However, I had read several items and articles dating over the last 10 or so years showing/proving that the "Valois" thing was at best a myth and at worst a hoax.

It is interesting, though, that from the myth/hoax a certain name of "Anna Catherine" can be asserted without there being a SURNAME attached to it. I guess my own opinion is that if you're researching "a pleasant daydream" that didn't exist how do you then turn around and aver that its a real person named "Anna Catherine" ...? I'm assuming there's the "rest of the story" floating around somewhere.
