Knox County, Ohio, Mt. Vernon, History
792 - HISTORY OF KNOX COUNTY BY

SELLERS, JOHN, farmer, Morgan township, was born in Greene county, Pennsylvania, in June, 1795. His parents belonged to the farmer class, being industrious and well-to-do people.

The subject of this sketch was one of ten children, only two of whom are now living. He spent his youth on the farm with his parents, attending such schools as were taught in the county in those days. His father purchased a tract of two hundred and fifty acres of land in Morgan township, and in the fall of 1823 Mr. Sellers came to this land and erected a cabin and then returned to Pennsylvania, where he remained until the spring of 1824, when he emigrated to his new home with his family. He worked during the summer of 1824 in subduing the forest the whole tract being heavily timbered.

In the spring of 1825, the noted "Burlington storm" swept over M. Sellers' new home, levelling most of the timber. This was discouraging to him as he was bitterly hemmed in by an almost impenetrable jungle of fallen timber. But what he supposed was a misfortune proved a blessing-from the fact that the fallen timber dried so, that the following year fire did the work of the axeman and the log-roller.

Mr. Sellers, by his industry, prospered, and soon had a good farm, and in the course of time was enabled to purchase more land; until he is now the largest land owner in the township, and among the largest in the county. His success and integrity of character soon made him a leader, and he has always taken an active interest in the affairs of the township and county.

In politics Mr. Sellers is a Democrat of the Jackson type. In 1850 his party nominated and elected him a member of the Constitutional convention of Ohio.

Mr. Sellers is of benevolent impulses, and through his many acts of charity is known as " the poor man's friend." He never sends any one away without supplying their wants. In religion he is a Universalist.

He was three times married. His first wife was Nancy Mitchell, a native of Greene county, Pennsylvania, to whom he was married before coming to Ohio. They had twelve children, five of whom are living: Elizabeth, wife of William Hamilton; Levi, an influential farmer of Morgan township; George M., in Illinois; Mary A., wife of James Elliott, who resides in Texas; and Maria. His second wife was Miss Honey, who died without issue. His present wife was Mrs. Charlotte Rapp, nee Taylor. They have four children, viz: James B., Rufus P., C. L. Vallandigham, and Mitchell.



SELLERS, JACOB, farmer, Morgan township, was born in Morgan township, March 2, 1816. His father, Jacob Sellers, came to Morgan township in 1808 and purchased quite a large tract of land. He was a native of Greene county, Pennsylvania. His wife was Mary Beam, a native of Virginia. They had a family of eleven children, viz: William, Susan (wife of James Honey), Sarah (wife of John Clutter), Isaac, David, John, Jackson, and Mary (wife of. Joseph Bolwine). The above are deceased. The living are Christian, Jacob, and George.

Jacob Sellers, sr., was born in 1785, came to Knox county in 1808, and died in 1846. His wife was born December 18, 1790, and died August 6, 1878. When this couple came to Morgan township they lived in what is called a camp, and while living there built a small cabin on the site of the buildings now owned by John Penick. The farm was en-trely covered with forest, which he cleared off and became one of the good farmers of that Section.

The subject of this sketchwas reared on the old homestead and has always resided on a part of it. He married Miss Cynthia Carmon, and they have a family of four children, viz: Ida M. born May 1, 1859; Delphos S., April 22, 1861; James M., June 12, 1863 (died Scptember 20, 1863); and Jesse H., June 7, 1870.

SELLERS, LEVI, Morgan township, farmer, was born in Greene county, Pennsylvania, August 9, 1823. He is the son of John Sellers, of Morgan township, of whom mention is made. His father shortly after the birth of Levi came to Morgan township, and settled here. Mr. Sellers spent his youth on the farm, and when old enough assisted in clearing it up. His education was such as the common schools afforded. He remained with his father until he was about twenty-five years of age. In October, 1848, he married Miss Cassandra McLain, daughter of 'Squire Charles S. McLain, of Morgan township. Shortly after his marriage he moved to his present home, where they have resided ever since. Mr. Sellers is one of the well-to-do and influential farmers of old Morgan, and is highly esteemed. He is the father of seven children, viz: Charles W., William H., Ella F., wife of H. B. Hughes, of Clay township; George W., Lizzie M., Jennie M., and Anna L.

SELLERS, GEORGE, Morgan township, farmer, born in Morgan township, May 8, 1824. He is the son of Jacob Sellers, sr., of whom mention is made in the biography of Jacob Sellers, jr. The subject of this notice was reared on a farm, and has always followed farming as his occupation. He resides on a part of the original tract his father purchased when first settling in Ohio.

On March 11, 1847, he married Miss Adaline Hughes (daughter of Jonathan Hughes, a pioneer of Licking county), who was born December 7, 1829. They had a family of eight children, viz: One who died in infancy; Orcelia L., wife of John Oldaker; Zilpah C., wife of Aaron Channel; George H., Jacob O., Rosa D., Mary F., wife of Lewis Hall, and Cora Ettie. Mr. Sellers is a good farmer and citizen.

SELLERS, WILLIAM H., Morgan township, farmer, born October 5, 1850. He is the son of Levi and Cassandra Sellers, of whom mention is made. He was reared on his father's farm, educated at the common schools, and Dennison university, Granville, Ohio. He is a rising young farmer, intelligent and industrious.

He was married August 8, 1878, to Miss Elizabeth J. Campbell, daughter of James Campbell, of Morgan township. They have one child, Gertrude, born March 22, 1880.

SELLERS, JAMES B., Morgan township, farmer, born in Morgan township, March 26, 1858, son of John Sellers, of same township, and of whom mention is made elsewhere, was reared on a farm, and has continued farming ever since. He attended common schools and about a year at an academy.

The brutal murder of David Sellers

to excite attention, 'tellers wan
very wealthy and ft miser. The family
lived in squalor for the sake of
economy. Iu hi* younger dayw, accordlng'to
the Morrow co. Hcntlnel,
Sellers was rather a spruce young
man and fond of dress, but for years
past lits passion for money-getting
swallowed everything else. Hellers'
daughter, aged 20 or 27, and a hired
harm were in the house, and were
awakeued by the flames. .There IB no
clue to the murderer. Sellers rarely
kept any money In the house, a fact

He had few friends, and ao

Does anyone know anything about the child/person, John Sellers, age 24?
He wasn't in the 1850 U.S. Census above but was alive then.  Could one of the
daughters have married a Sellers?

I have documented information about the daughter, Elizabeth, my
great-grandmother.  I also have some documented information about the
sons, George and Christian.  These three children all ended up in Gentry County,
Missouri.  I would really like to hear from anyone else who is researching
this Sellers family line--descendants of George b. 1834, Elizabeth b.
1835, Mariah b. 1837, Christian b. 1839, Mary b. 1844, John b. 1846, and Jesse b.1850.
I have a biography of Christian Sellers b. 1839 that was in a Gentry County, Missouri, history book.

Marie--thank you for all of your wonderful help.

I just recently received information from a USGenWeb Morrow County, Ohio,
lookup who had access to cemetery records for that county.  Sure enough my
Sellers line was included and buried in the Bloomfield Cemetery, South
Bloomfield Township:

Christian Sellers d. April 16, 1884 aged 84 y 25d and his 2nd wife Sarah
(Braddock) d. July 26, 1884 aged 77y 10m 9d.  Christian Sellers and his wife
came from Green County, PA, with their children and children from his first
wife, Susannah Fry, and first show up in Morrow County, Ohio, in the 1960 (1860msh)
U.S. Census.

The lookup found a number of other Sellers who I imagine are probably kin to
Christian Sellers.  Does anybody recognize these names?

GEORGE W. FLUCKEY is a resident on a farm located on section 17, of Tower
Hill Township, Shelby County. His father was Adam Fluckey, who was probably a
native of Pennsylvania. His mother was Mary Sellers. After marriage they
settled in Perry County, Ohio, and from there moved to what is now Morrow County,
Ohio; there they died. They were parents of seven children, of whom our
subject was the second in order of birth. He first saw the light of day in Perry
County, Ohio, August 12, 1830. His early life was spent on a farm in Morrow
County, Ohio, and there he learned the duties incident to farm life.
Mr. Fluckey was married October 2, 1856, to Miss Arvilla Brown, their
nuptials being celebrated in Morrow County, Ohio. By her he became the father of
three children, whose names are: Sarah E., Ira A., and Winfield S. The first
named is the wife of Charles Summers. Ira married Melinda Fagg. Mrs. Arvilla
Fluckey, died in their home in Morrow County, in April 1862. Two years later. He
again took upon himself the duties and obligations of marital life and was
united to Edith A. Bennett. She also was a native of Morrow County, Ohio. Six
children cluster about the home board. Their names are Isaac N., Lewis B.,
George B., William E., James A. and Bertha A.
The removal from Ohio to Shelby County, this State, was made in April 1868,
and at that time they settled in Tower Hill Township, of which place our
subject has ever since been a resident. He has always been engaged in
agricultural pursuits and is the owner of three hundred and seventeen acres of land. Mr.
Fluckey has erected a very attractive residence on his place. It is
tastefully built and conveniently arranged. This place is graciously presided over by
his wife, who has been his aid and helpmate in gaining the position which he
at present enjoys. He of whom we write is held high in the esteem of the
people in the community where he resides. A thoughtful and earnest man he is
genial and whole-souled. Several local offices in the gift of the township have
been thrust upon him and his service as a School Director has been
appreciated by the fact that he desires to keep abreast with the times in educational
matters, seeking to make the standard of the schools in his district,
irreproachable. In politics he is an adherent of the Republican Party, the views as
taken by that party of commercial affairs and general government being such as
harmonize best with our subject’s theories. Religiously both he and his wife
are members of the Methodist Episcopal Church, in which they are ardent
workers and generous supporters.

I hope this is of interest to some of you. I stumbled upon the Morrow County Genealogical Society Web Site. I guess someone has compiled listings of all the Cemetery records. I sent in a request, and thanks to the help of a wonderful member of their society, was sent the following information....In red I have indicated who is who in the South Bloomfield Cemetery records. This is where Christian Sellers was buried.
I hope this information will help.
I don't know if this information is going anywhere or not, so I will try to re-post on the discussion board....
