Yes the 1860 data is my clan. The first family shown is the Sam, Leonard's son, and I visited his grave last summer with Perry Township Chief of Police. His children were born in OHIO not PA. Leonard came in 1836-37 from Franklin Cnty PA.

Second family is my GG GF Leonard, and wife, Elizabeth Wenger Sellers. The Wm Cellars shown is my G GF.
The next family Joseph is also son of Leonard.

The last family is John and Susan Sellers and tons of kids. Those show PA birth for kids but I expect many were born in Ohio
since the same error was made with Sam's kids. John and Susan rest in the same, small Lutheran as Leonard and Elizabeth.
Although the rest within a few feet of each other, I have never been able to relate them to my line.

The Jacob Sellers shown in 1850 data is also a mystery.
I have considerable data on these folks if anyone needs more info.

They received my DNA sample in Houston today.
Thanks, Roger

History of Allen County Ohio
Joseph Sellers, farmer, P.O. Cridersville, Auglaize County, Ohio, was
born in Franklin County,
Penn., March 9, 1828, and is a son of Leonard and Elizabeth (Winyard)
Sellers, natives of
Pennsylvania who settled in Allen County, Ohio, in 1837, clearing and
improving the farm now
owned by their son, William.  They had nine children; Joseph, John,
Henry, Samuel, William,
Catherine (deceased, Susan (wife of J Walton), Eliza ( wife of Miles
Lowry), and Harriet (wife
of Charles Carter).  Our subject was ten years of age when his parents
came to this county.  He
was educated in the common schools and lived with his father until
twenty-four years of age.  He
was married in 1852, to Leah, daughter of Martin Crumrine, an early
settler of Perry Township,
this county, by whom he has six children: Daniel, David, William, Eliza
(wife of George A
Beeler), Margaret (wife of George Mosher), and Franklin.  Mr. Sellers
located, in 1853, on the
farm where he now resides, most of which he has cleared and improved
himself.  He is a leading
farmer of Perry Township and one of its enterprising citizens.  He has
held the offices of trustee
and treasurer of the township for several terms.  In politics he is a
Democrat.  He and his wife
are members of the Lutheran Church.

Thanks. My info does not agree with data shown. Joseph was born 3-9-28 in
Franklin Cnty, PA (Waynesboro,PA). This is shown on information gathered
from personal papers of Victor N. Sellers, grandson of Thomas, and son of
William. Same papers show Leonard married to Anna Weingert vice Elizabeth
Wengard. It also states they came to Ohio in 1836 while other data states
Leonard settled on what is now SW corner of public square of Lima, OH in
1837. Maybe Franklin Cnty PA is key to connected Leonard and Anna or
Elizabeth to rest of this Sellers history. Both Leonard and wife are buried
in an old St John's Rd,now Rt 65 , at the corner of Breese Rd. His son John
W. and wife Mary M. Conkle are there also.
I have personally seen this. Leonard passed on in 1860. What I need to do is
put lots of other names I have from more current generations into TreeMaker
and then prob forward to you in your preferred format. Dad wrote to several
sources incl some to the south ,I think, near Pandora OH.

Windy on the golf crs today. You have prob passed thru Las Cruces.
My office is right across the street from the only tall bldg in town,First
Nat Bank. Thanks for your help. I'll see what you have
on Franklin Cnty PA.


Roger has stated that his dad/granddad's records show Leonard SELLERS
son Joseph was born 1828 in Franklin Co,Pa. and that they came from
Lancaster Co.Pa.

Allen Co, history states Joseph  was born in Franklin Co,Oh.and Leonard
in 1785 Berks Co,Pa. (Berk and Lancaster lay side by side)
When you go to 1830  (and 1820) Franklin Co,Pa, you find=

Cumberland Co has a list of abstracts of wills - does anyone have? We
need this info posted on these PA counties or we'll never get smarter?
Antrim Township was made in 1741, Cumberland Co and now lays in Franklin Co.

Dear Marilyn,

The Sellers part of our family tree arrived safely at my home here. My, =
what a
lot of work! My mother would have been able to name more twigs. She was =
a friendly, out-going person, her family's youngest child. She made a =
home for her mether with us when I was a child. Granndmother =
Sellers-read the funny-paper (comics) tome and taught me to "read" Psalm =
1. She was an expert at embroidery and sewed clothing for my doll. She =
enjoyed playing Santa at our house in Cridersville. When my parents and =
I would come home from the Christmas Eve Program at church, she would be =
safely in bed with her nightcap on, but the presents would be spread on =
the library table under our little artificial tree. I'd run excitedly =
into her room and ask if she had seen Santa. She would get out of bed =
and we would open the presents.

I can remember only my mother's brothers and sister and their children. =
The oldest was Elmer whose one child was stillborn. His wife was Ida who =
wrote the obituaries of her in-laws that I have enclosed. Both Edgar and =
Jim married a Mary Catherine. I called your grandmother Aunt Molly and =
the other relative, Aunt Kate. Kate & Ed adopted a son, William. Kate & =
Ed are buried at Fairmount Cemetery, not too far from Grandfather =
William Sellers and his wife, Sarah Jane, your great-grandparents. My =
parents are buried in the same cemetery. Aunt Ida Perkins had no =
children but adopted Eva, who married Eddie Long. They had no children, =
but adopted Jimmy. Jimmy is dead now but left a wife and children. Eva =
was the one who gave me the old deed of Leonard Sellers in Ohio. He is =
the beginning of generation 3 on your list and Roger's great, great =
grandfather. The family tells the story that the land was chosen at the =
middle of Allen County in order to have property for the county-seat, =
but instead Allen County was divided and a new county, Auglaize, was =
formed, so the land was in the borders of two counties. Uncle Jim, as =
you know, had sons Howard and Loren. I remember visiting (with awe) =
Uncle Jim's seventh grade classroom for about an hour. I was a child =
spending the day visiting an old friend in the fourth grade at the old =
Cridersville building. Not too long after Loren married Dorothy, My =
mother invited them to dinner at our farm home near Waynesfield. She got =
out our best china and tablecloth. Not long after Loren's death, I made =
a special drive to your mother's house bringing her the Sellers Family =
Bible and some pictures.

Each of Grandfather Willam's six children received forty acres and =
enough timber to build a house when they married. Their was only forty =
acres left plus a woods, orchard, and homestead plot when my mother was =
born. Though the youngest, she was born in the oldlog house. Mother as a =
young girl did a lot of fruit picking for her parents. Uncle Jim had a =
fine orchard, too. After my grandmother's death, my mother received that =
last forty acres with Aunt Ida buying the homestead plot and building a =
house there with the help of Eva. The old house, built after the days of =
the log cabin had burned. Its picture with that of some of the family =
members is one that I brought to your mother. A big county ditch went =
through what mother received. Also there was a Lowery Cemetery on a =
fence row about 400 feet back from Town-line Lima Road. Last year I =
hired a surveyor and asked my lawyer to write a deed to give to the =
Township Trustees. They have not yet accepted it for care. The =
information on the tombstones is hard to read and some stones I believe =
are gone. I note on your tree that Grandfather Sellers had a sister that =
married a Lowery, but I believe that instead the land was given to one =
of Grandmother Seller's sisters that married a Lowery. The names include =
John G. Lowery, age 47 who died in 1847
and two babies, John M. and Mary C. who died in 1850 and 51. I talked to =
an old, blind Lowery gentleman with sharp mind who says the cemetery =
belonged to their family, but have no more details from them. In my day =
the Sellers did not have a reunion though the Buchanan's did in the =
Hengstler Grove on the old Dixie between Cridersille and Wapakoneta. ~ =
Sellers Hengsler, mentioned in the tree was possibly a forbear.

I wrote a letter to another twig on the Sellers tree trying to get =
relationship straight. I received a prompt answer. Ethel Sellers, #38 on =
Roger's list, married Merle Bowdle and had a son, Robert Merle and a =
daughter Cecile. The daughter, Cecile Bowdle married a Bennett. They had =
a boy Jim who is dead and a girl Lois Ann, who answered my letter. She =
was a main planner for Waynesfield's Sesquicentennial which happened =
this year.

North Carolina will at times be a wet and windy place to live. Another =
school year w-ill be starting for you. I miss contact with the younger =
generation. There are only a few at my present church. This past April I =
asked a fifth grade class at Waynesfild School to write a third chapter =
for an Indian (Native American) story I had written quite a few years =
ago, to do it for the town's sesquicentennial. They did. I took their =
pictures and displayed their stories. A good time was had by all, =
especially me. There were many other events. Have a good year.

In Memoriam:

       William B. Sellers, son of Leonard and Eliza Sellers, was born on =
what is now the site of the public square in Lima, Allen County, Ohio, =
August 22, 1839, the family consisting of father, mother and four =
children having just arrived in lumber wagons from Franklin County, =
Penn., and were camping gypsy fashion preparatory to a permanent =
location.
       Lima at that time consisted of only a few log cabins, one of them =
used for a general store and another the blacksmith shop, all in the =
thickly wooded forest. In casting about for a place to settle and erect =
a home grandfather Sellers selected a portion of ground six miles south =
of Lima and with the exception of one year in Cridersville this location =
has always been the home of the subject of this sketch. On this faith =
five sons and four daughters grew to sturdy manhood and womanly =
womanhood. In the progress 'of time William learned to know all about =
the perseverance the discouragements incident to such a task, the =
hardships endured and the physical energy required to establish a home, =
and to acquire the competence that it took to provide the necessaries of =
life under such primeval circumstances.
       He was married to Sarah J. Buchanan April 17, 1863, and to this =
union were born three sons and four daughters. After fifty-nine years of =
married life the separation did not come of our choosing but rather we =
would have put it sometime in the distant future. Early in life Father =
Sellers had very strong religious convictions, but not until established =
in a home of his own and a prattling baby child was taken from the home =
into a life beyond that he fully realized that "it was not all of life =
to live, neither was it all of death to die," and he began to seek to =
know God's saving grace in his own heart and life and was rewarded with =
such a divine manifestation of God's power to save that it proved an =
impenetrable wall of protection against sin and its deceptiveness all =
down the line of his religious profession. He was a charter member of =
Victory Chapel church and in earlier years was active=20
in the responsible positions of the church but at the present time only =
held the office of trustee. The aftertime revealed the fact that though =
Father Sellers was walking and moving among us in the recent past, he =
was living in the future; to one member of the family he had given =
certain instructions, to another a statement about his personal effects, =
to another his plan or wish in conducting the final services and when =
they were all put together it was very plain how earthly attractions had =
lost their significance, how "finish" was written on the last page of =
his life's history and how his funeral arrangements had all been =
carefully thought out and provided for ail the evidence that earth and =
its achievements had receded while the shore of the heavenly land had =
drawn so very near that it was only a step through the portals into the =
city of the finally faithful, the home of the blest. There seemed =
nothing left that he should do except to attend the house of God on =
Sabbath morning, taking part in services by engaging in song and =
offering prayer imploring God's blessing to rest upon the living and to =
give expression to the gratitude of his heart for the heavenly Father's =
tender care His saving grace and His keeping power; and then in only a =
few moments by way of a paralytic stroke his eyes closed and his lips =
were sealed to all earthly surroundings and in a few short hours, Monday =
morning, September 25, 1922, at 2:25 o' clock very quietly and =
peacefully his spirit took its flight to the haven of rest, aged 83 =
years, 1 month and 3 days. Since prayer was his stronghold in the =
Christian life it seemed very fitting that prayer should have been the =
gateway into the realities of the home of his life long anticipation and =
religious expectation.
    We esteem the legacy that he left to his family that of honesty, =
integrity, his high regard for the good he saw in others and his =
sterling worth in Christian character above ail things else. no matter =
how intrinsic their value.
 

    Two daughters, Cora H. in infancy and Emma E. at the age of 20 years =
preceded the father in death. Mrs. Eliza Lowry of Uniopolis, is the only =
living member of his immediate family. Those who are left to mourn their =
loss are: The wife three sons, Elmer W. Sellers, L. Edgar Seller, James =
B. Sellers, two daughters, Mrs. Ida M. Perkins and Mrs. Jennie E. =
Haywood, one sister, six grandchildren with many relatives, neighbors =
and friends.

"0! the joy 'neath heaven's dome
When the faithful travel home;=20
Through the tempest and the sunshine
They have crossed life's vales and hills;
'Neath a changeful sky their pathway=20
Led them oft through many ills;=20
Now before them lieth nothing=20
Save the cloudless, perfect day,
Shining o'er immortal beauty
In an everlasting ray.
 

Unto this they've looked with longing=20
As their various paths they trod;
All have come through one dark valley

>From their trial to their triumph-
Is a sure and high exchange;

Sweet the joy 'neath heaven's dome=20
When the faithful travel home."

    Funeral services were held at Victory Chapel, Wednesday September =
27, 1922, at 10 o'clock, after which the remains were laid to rest in =
Falrmount cemetery. The flowers were profuse and beautiful The large =

 In Memoriam:

     Sarah Jane Sellers, daughter of James and Margaret Buchanan, nee =
Hammond, was born February 17, 1845, four miles northeast of Wapakoneta, =
Auglaize County, Ohio, and grew to womanhood in that locality. At that =
time her educational faculty perhaps predominated over other features of =
character, proof of which was her aptness in learning and for a time a =
teacher in the public schools.
        She was the youngest of seven children and lived through many a =
period of toil, sacrifice and limited resource; she knew by experience =
the meaning of deprivation of many of the present day conveniences that =
prove a blessing to humanity.
     On April 17, 1853 she was united in marriage to William B. Sellers =
and together they shared the joys of life and mutually they divided the =
cares anti perplexities ot life for more than half a century, living the =
entire time in a comfortable country home two and one-half mlles =
southeast of Cridersville. Ohio.

     The husband was called to his heavenly home September 23, 1922, and =
since that time mother Sellers had made her home with her two daughters =
in Cridersville, Ohio---with Mrs. Jennie E. Haywood for a period of five =
years and the remaining time with Mrs. Ida Perkins, at whose home the =
summons came on Monday, June i0, 1929, at 4:20 P.M. to move out of the =
old tenement of clay and into a mansion prepared for the saints and the =
finally faithful.
     Knowing her life as we did it was no strange thing to us to hear =
her say, "If I am not here when yon return I'll be at home over there."
     She was aged 84 years, 3 months and twenty-three days.
     There is a very real sense in which the faithfulness of his saints =
can and will be known only when Christ comes to make up his jewels and =
reward them. The rare beauty of a diamond can only be seen by the master =
workman, and especially was this principle true in the modest and =
retiring life of the subject of this sketch. But many a time, flashes of =
the indwelling Spirit's light has been an inspiration to the writer and =
many others. One was ever conscious of her great love for her Savior, =
the church and the principles of Christianity, the above traits of =
character had been in process of development since childhood and she had =
grown into the fullness of, "He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearlng =
precious seed shall doubtless come again with rejoicing bringing his =
sheaves with him." "She rests from her labors and her works do follow =
her."
      To this union were born seven children, three sons and four =
daughters, two daughters, Cora H. in infancy and Emma E. at the age of =
twenty years, together with the husband preceded her in death, and her =
countenance showed a gladness when she would say, "I'll be with nearly =
as many of my family over there as I am in company with here."
      Mrs. Rachel A. Barr of Dalton,Ohio, is the only living member of =
her immediate family.
      Those who are left to mourn their loss are: tbree sons, Elmer W. =
Sellers, L. Edgar Sellers. lames B. Sellers, all of Wapakoneta, O., R. =
R. 9; two daughters, Mrs. Ida M. Perkins, Cridersville, Ohio, and Mrs. =
Jennie E. Haywood, Waynesfield, O., one sister, five grandchildren with =
many relatives, neighbors and friends.
     Prov. 31, 28-Her children rise up and call her blessed.
     There is no question but what it was infinite love and wisdom that =
Her father permitted her to pass through montbs of intense suffering =
before He permitted her to enter the portals of heavenly joy and =
ecstasy. It must be that thus he was the most glorified and that =
constant grace in suffering was a living testimony to family and friends =
that she had triumphed in reaching the goal of her religious profession.
     She was a charter member of Victory Chapel church and her influence =
will live on through future days, months and years.
     There is a sense in which family and friends feel their loss so =
keenly that they forget the joy and gladness into which their loved ones =
have entered but may God's grace be sufficiently given that our sorrow =
and grief may be tempered with a large measure of pathos that will =
enable us to say, "Thy will be done."
     In her memory fragrant with his grace, we catch a glimpse of =
Christ's inheritance in his saints; but, could she speak of herself =
would she not say:

"Sometime when shadows all are past,
When storms and dangers are no more,
I'll reach the Summerland and cast
My anchor by that shining shore.

My barque that carried me afar
I'll leave beside the golden strand,
As I pass through the gates ajar
Into that blissful Summer land.

No backward look my soul shall take
As I pass through those portals bright,
But tune my joyful harp to wake
Sweet echos from the hills of light.

No more eager heart shall yearn
For pleasures earth has long denied;
Of joys celestial there I'll learn
And be forever satisfied."

Funeral services were held at Victory Chapel,
Wednesday, June 12, 1929 at 2 o'clock , after which
the remains were laid to rest in Fairmount cemetery.
     The flowers were very beautiful, and a silent tribute of the love =
and esteem in which the deceased was held.
     The large concourse of people in attendance at the funeral gave =
testimony to her religious and social relations while living among them.
      Funeral services were conducted by the Rev. Jesse Shaw, of =
CridersvilIe, Ohio, assisted by Rev T. Weyer, Van Wert, Ohio, and Rev. =
J. M. Sherer, Spencerville, Ohio.
Funeral Text, Psalms 116, 15.

on a John and Jacob Sellers who signed for land in Allen Cnty Ohio on the
same day as my GG grandfather ,Leonard did by 1840. I just took deed to
get
framed today
Which covered purchase of 120 acres, for 1200, in Oct 1839. Leonard was
born
in Bucks Cnty PA and died in Allen Cnty in 1860----moved from Franklin
Cnty
PA to Ohio. Census data shows some children definitely related to
Leonard's
seed living with other Sellers families but I have not been able to relate
them. I can provide some more info if anyone may have possible links to
these other Sellers. John and family lie in same Lutheran cemetery with
Leonard and other related folks.
Roger (Las Cruces,NM)

Judy,
I noted your traffic and noted wild spelling for town near my home town of
Lima.
We did the Auglaize Cnty fair there. Is this listing of land deals in this
area ?
I am trying to identify Jacob Sellers and others living in area in 183X.
Gracias
Roger in Las Cruces,NM

While at the Oregon State Library recently, I found the following
information in a book entitled, "American Revoluntionary Soldiers of
Franklin Co., PA", Compiled by Mr. Fendrik. I hope it is helpful to some
of you.  It says:

Joseph Shirk served as private under Capts. John Rea and John
Reed, 1779-80-81. He was of Green Twp., but owned land in
Letterkenny. He names 11 children: Casper; Fred'k.; Joseph;
Christly; Abraham; Jacob; Peter; Elizabeth mar. John Long;
Barbara mar. Jacob Houser; Christina mar. John Leaman;
MAGDALENA mar. GEORGE SELLERS; grandson Samuel of son John.
This will was probated May 22, 1811.
=========
AND we have daughters named Magdalena here in Stark Co,Oh

BUT, we wouldn't have boughten land here in ALLEN CO,OH on the west side of
the
state and returned to STARK CO, OH. on the east side of the state?
OR could we have come here to ALLEN CO from STARK CO, OH from FRANKLIN CO,
PA?

BUT, then, Where are we in 1840? YOU are good at sorting these families -
Advise
what we need, Maybe When this land was Sold?
STARK CO, OH =

If you go to "Find A Grave" it will give you the location of most any cemetery and a map. Frank

JACOB CRITES, farmer, P. O. Allentown, was born in Pickaway County, Ohio, Oct. 19, 1822. He was made a cripple for life by accidentally stepping on the knife of a straw cutter, nearly severing his left foot from the leg. Early in life he commenced to work at the blacksmith trade, an occupation he followed seventeen years. He came to this county, in 1842, and October 2, 1845, was united in marriage to Miss Mary Jane Cremean, who died September 12, 1859. leaving to his care seven children. His second marriage occurred February 5, 1860 with Mrs. Emily Sellars. During his lifetime Mr. Crites served the public in nearly all offices of trust in the township, and to the people of the county he has been very useful as county commissioner, to which office he was twice elected, filling the same with honor to himself and to the full satisfaction of the people. A great many private trusts also have been assigned to him, such as administering on the estates of many of his deceased neighbors. It is his intention and. desire, however, to retire from public life and devote his entire attention to his farming interests, (which are considerable,) in addition to which he has, for several years, been engaged more or less extensively in raising stock: his specialties being thoroughbred hogs. Mr. Crites was one of the incorporators of Allen Lodge, I. O. O. F., and for four years was master of German Grange, of which he has thrice been State delegate. Since the age of twenty Mr. Crites has been identifiad with some religious denomination, and for several years with the Methodist Episcopal Church, in which he has been very useful, filling several offices of the same, at present being superintendent of the Sabbath school.

This details the preservation of an abandoned, hidden-on-a-farm historic cemetery in Monroe County, MI, just over the state line. I have no ancestors up there, but perhaps my late husband does; he had some family in Monroe County. Wow, I'd like to see something like this done for Barton-Stevenson in Allen County, OH (even though the township does keep it in better shape than this cemetery was when the preservation efforts began). My Sellers 2nd great-grandparents (and Barton 3rd great-grandparents) are buried there. Theirs is probably the largest monument in the place, but it has broken apart over the decades. A BIG tip of the hat to the farm owners, for not having a problem with me going back there. I always call them before I go down there (and I always get their voicemail), and I let them know I'm coming. The only time there's ever been any issue is when they called me back a couple years ago in December to let me know that there would be guys with guns back there ! and I'd better wear some orange! As it turned out, it took a couple of those hunters to point us to the right spot!

A Happy Memorial Day to all. Please remember those who gave their lives so yours could live free. And if you ARE a veteran -- THANK YOU!
