Oliver C. Zeller
                                 Or
   The Tiffin National Exchange Bank Robbery of 1878

Oliver Cromwell Zeller was born in Washington Co., Maryland, near Hagerstown. His early life is
a mystery. Even his parentage is quite uncertain. From the 1860 census we know he was born in
1833. His wife Margaret was also born in Maryland in 1833. Their first child, Lawrence, was
born in 1856/7 so we can supposed they married shortly before that, say 1854/5. This coincides
well with his move to Ohio in 1855. Another mystery then is where he was in the 1850 census.
Obviously, he should have been in Maryland, but I have not been able to find him listed with any
of the obvious possible Zeller/Zellers parents. In the 1850 census there is another Oliver Zeller,
age 41, married to Martha whose oldest child is only 12. I believe this to be Oliver Cromwell's
father, but Oliver would have only been 16 or 17 at this time, so where is he?

In any case, it seems likely that Oliver and Margaret were married in 1855 and moved west to
Ohio, settling in Seneca County in the township of Tiffin, the county seat. For several years he
worked as a clerk, where I don't know. His two children were both born before 1860. By 1870 he
was the Cashier at the Tiffin National Exchange Bank. He was also prospering handily, his estate
valued at $4,600, a tidy sum in those days. He held that position until April of 1878.

On Monday, April 23, 1878 the officers of the bank arrived for work to discover $45,782.47 of the
bank's money was missing. So was Oliver. He had left Tiffin, with the money, and caused the
sensation of the year for Seneca County.

The previous evening Oliver took the T., T & E railroad from Tiffin, boarding the train at 7:10
P.M. He rode to Toledo in the smoking car, spending much time in conversation with a Mr.
Charles Merril, of Toledo, who later related this part of the story. At Toledo the two gentlemen
took a street car and rode down Summit Street to Adams, where Mr. Merril got off. It is
supposed that Oliver then took the street car to the Union Depot and took the 10:38 train to
Detroit.

In Detroit, Oliver purchased a through ticket to New York and also a bridge ticket for crossing
Niagra Falls. This was a ruse. Oliver only used one ticket of the through pass and stopped in
London, Ontario. It was here that detective John Norris, after several days search, managed to
track Oliver down, in a small town outside London called Belmont. When he drove up to the place
where Oliver was staying, he found him sitting on the porch, smoking a cigar.

As soon as Oliver saw Norris, he cooly walked out to the buggy and said "How are you John?"
Oliver reached out his hand and helped Norris out, ordered the landlord to take charge of the
team, and invited the detective in. Oliver was very calm, enquiring about his friends and
acquaintances back home and appearing as if there was nothing out of the ordinary. When
detective Norris expalined that his purpose for being there was to arrest Oliver and take him to
London, Oliver said "All right, but we had better wait until morning, when the drive will be more
pleasant."

They waited until morning and then drove into London where Oliver was arrested "on suspicion"
which only allowed him to be held for eight days or until charged. Oliver's attorneys promptly
answered for him and he was set free.

On Sunday, May 13, Norris discovered Judge Seney in conference with Oliver's attorney. He had
left Tiffin on Friday, having been sent for by Oliver. In all his conversations, Norris said Oliver
never admitted to taking the money. There was no way of getting Oliver extradited from Canada
and his arrest was most probably for the purpose of holding him and coming to some sort of
compromise.

Eventually, a compromise was reached. Sometime before November, the newspapers are not
clear on dates, Oliver's wife Margaret joined him, this time in Windsor, Canada. She was
accompanied by E. T. Stickney, one of the directors of the bank and Oliver's bondsman as
Treasurer of the School fund. Mr. Stickney managed to persuade Oliver to give him about
$10,000, sufficient to indemnify him as security for the School Fund. Stickney perceived also, that
Oliver was getting weary of his forced retirment and wished to return to the States. In turn he
was visited by J. D. Loomis, President of the bank, and Directors R. W. Shawhan and Dr. A. B.
Hovey.

During negociations it was learned from Oliver that detective Norris had managed to extort about
$15,000 of the money during his visit in May! The bank officers were none too happy about this
and brought pressure to bear on the wily detective, resulting in his giving back about $10,000.

Oliver finally came to an agreement with the bank that they would no longer hold him liable for
the money if he returned $4,200 in cash and bonds, a check for $300 back pay and all his real
estate in Fort Wayne, Defiance, Albion, Paulding and Tiffin, worth about $15,000. Of course, they
could not guarantee that he would not be prosecuted for his criminal actions.

And how did Oliver do out of all this? What with about $10,000 in attorney's fees, he was left with
a little over $6,000 and had lost all his land holdings, so he came out not only considerably in the
hole, but with a reputation indelibly tarnished.

On Saturday, November 24 he was in Detroit and from there went to Flint, leaving his wife behind
in Windsor for a time. After that, we lose Oliver again for a few years. He was nowhere to be
found in Ohio during the 1880 census. In 1881 he was living in Toledo and had a job a secretary
of the C.Z. Kroh Carriage Top and Saddle factory, a job he held until his death. It is possible that
he returned to Maryland for a year or two.

His last year or two were very unncomfortable for him. He was dying of cancer of the bowels
and was in considerable pain. The last three months of his life he spent at the home of his
daughter and son-in-law, Lillian and Alpheus Baichly. He died January 18, 1899 and was buried in
the Greennlawn Cemetary, in Tiffin, Ohio.

                       Frederick Sellers
I am listing information on Frederick Sellers in case anyone has further information, or if it may be
of help in their research. Frederick Sellers (#1) married Charlotta Sellers who were both born and
raised in Germany. THey had nine children, two born in Germany and seven born after they
arrived in America in 1819. Frederick (#2) was born in Germany and had nine children. They
were Jacob (who died in the Civil War), David (who served in the Civil War and has descendents
in Ft. Seneca, Ohio (have copies of letters and Civil War records), Elizabeth C. Sellers, Frederick
(#3), Nehemiah Reuben Sellers, George W. Sellers, Ann Rebecca Sellers, Jessie Newton Sellers
(moved to Texas, and have no further info.) and Andrew M. Sellers.

Annie Sellers - from "A Centennial Biographical History of Seneca County, Ohio (Chicago - The
Lewis Publishing Company 1902 p. 691, 692, 693) Abram D. Shidler - "Among the worthy and
progressive agriculturists of Seneca county no one is more justly entitled to an honorable place in
its history than Mr. Shidler, who wa born on the farm which is now his home and who has been
usefully identified with the prosperity of the country in the promotion of its agricultural interests
and of progressive measures for the general good. He has made the country his home throughout
his entire life and has been a witness of its development from the early pioneer epoch, while his
also is the distinction of having been one of the brafe defenders of the Union during the war of the
Rebellion.

Mr. Shidler was born on his present farm, in Pleasant Township on the 8th of January, 1850, being
the son of John and Annie (Sellers) Shidler, the former of whom was born in Leigh County,
Pennsylvania. (There is more information, but just wanted to tie in Annie Sellers)

REUBEN SELLERS (FROM "History of Seneca County, Ohio - Chicago - Warner, Beers &
Co. 1886, p.945) REUBEN SELLERS, farmer, P.O. Green Spring, was born in Pleasant
Township, this country, November 20, 1856. He was married, October 5, 1877, to Miss Adaline
Brenneman, a resident of Pleasant Township, but a native of Ashland County, Ohio, born
November 14, 1858, daughter of Jacob E. and Anson (Ulrich) Brenneman, who removed from
Ashland County to Pleasant Township, this country, in an early day and still reside here. To the
union of our subject and wife have been born three children: Elsa May, Bertha and Orvil. Reuben

Fulton Counties." J.H. Beers and Co., 1899

Rev. George W. Sellers

     Residing in Section 36, Center Township, Williams county, is Rev.
G.W. Sellers. He is not only engaged in farming, but also devotes much
of his time to the work of the ministry, being an ordained preacher of
the Dunkard Church. He was born near Tiffin, Seneca county, Ohio,
December 3, 1853, a son of Frederick and Hannah (Shidler) Sellers. The
paternal grandfather, Frederick Sellers, Sr., a native of Germany,
brought his family to America in 1820, and took up residence in Seneca
county.

     Frederick Sellers, Jr., was born in Germany, in 1817, and was
therefore but three years old when he emigrated with his parents to
the New World. In Seneca county he grew to manhood, and throughout his
active business career engaged in agricultural pursuits there, making
his home in that county until called to his final rest. He died,
however, in Wood county, Ohio, October 7, 1892, at the age of
seventy-four years, while visiting one of his children. His wife
survived him only about fourteen months, dying at the same age. In
their family were seven sons and two daughters, namely: Jacob (who
died while serving in the Union army at the age of nineteen years),
David (who also served in the Union army as a private soldier),
Elizabeth, Frederick, Reuben, George W., Jesse, Anna, and Andrew.
     Upon his father's farm in Seneca county, George W. Sellers passed
the days of boyhood and youth, becoming thoroughly familiar with
agricultural pursuits and acquiring a good and practical education in
the common schools of the neighborhood. After his marriage he remained
upon the old home farm, operating it for four years, and in February,
1881, came to Williams county. In Section 36, Center township, he
purchased his present farm of eighty acres, upon which he has made
many good imrpovements, and the well-tilled fields and neat and
thrifty appearance of the place testify to his skill and ability in
his chosen calling.
     On December 20, 1876, in Williams county, Mr. Sellers was united
in marriage to Miss Isabella Brown, who was born in that county,
August 29, 1855, a daughter of Jacob and Catherine Brown. Mr. and Mrs.
Sellers have four children, whose names and birth dates are as
follows: O.V., February 27, 1883; Lowell, May 30, 1885; Arthur L.
February 24, 1887; and Edith, March 25, 1890.
     Mr. Sellers takes a deep interest in educational affairs and has
most efficiently served as school director and school clerk. On
October 25, 1885, he was elected to the ministry of the Dunkard
Church, and was forwarded to the second degree October 2, 1887. He is
a man of thoughtful, earnest purpose, of broad charity and kindly
nature, and by all who know him is held in the highest regard.

I'm searching for anyone connected to Jerome Jackson, who appears on
1880 census in Pleasant Twp, Seneca Co, OH age 23 with wife Nancy, age
18. I have located in census index another Jerome Jackson on 1850 census
in Willoughby, Lake Co, OH who could be somehow connected to the younger
Jerome of the 1880 census.

My primary search is for Ann Matilda SELLERS who m. a JACKSON, however,
family info and searching has not yielded a first name for her husband.
I believe that Nancy could possibly be a nickname used for Ann. This
Jerome and Nancy are surrounded in Pleasant Twp. by many close relatives
of Ann Sellers.

Any assistance on identifying this Jerome would be greatly appreciated.

Marie,

Wow! Thanks for the info. My cousin, Susan Hallock and I have been so
frustrated trying to find who Anna had married. Will now try to locate
where
this Geo and Anna went to confirm that this is our Anna. Many family
connection
in Henry Co for this Sellers family, so this is a great find. I'll keep you
posted, as know you're doing a one-name search on the Sellers.

Appreciate your help! Guess I should have tried the Sellers list
first.<grin>

Hi, Martin Van Buren Sherer is my husbands GreatGrandfather, we are trying to find information on Martin's marriages and the children that he had. The information we have found so far doesn't say much about his marriages, except when we went to the Seneca Cemetery we found a headstone inscribed: McKinley Sherer b:Oct. 24, 1894, D:Nov. 4, 1894 (Son Of M.V. and L.A. Sherer); so we thought maybe the initials stood for Martin Van Buren and Louisa A.; there is a grave site at the same cemetery for a Louisa A. Sherer. I have also found on the "Decendants of Philip Johannes Bossert" site that he was to have married a Lamina Sellers, which is also buried at Seneca Cemetery. Any one with help on this would be greatly appreciated. My email is soup_robert5@sbcglobal.net, Karen
