HERMON - We had a THOMAS SELLERS in the Early PA = Cumberland, Franklin,
and
believe counties made from - BUT, NO kids/history on Same?
Where is/was FORT NECESSITY ? VA- Could it be this area of VA/PA?
A Very plain explanation =
Thanks for Sharing, marie, iowa

Fort Necessity,1754,was beyond the ,then, frontier towards the French.
It was in se Fayette Co,Pa  perhaps 50-75 miles beyond that last outpost
of civalization-Fort Cumberland-Md. -a fort of Va's Ohio Company.
Va claimed the areas,even the Pittsburg area.

BETTY, Thank You for all that  Typing! Most of this was extracted from
'other' books on
SELLERS families- mainly SELLERS of PA ,
The Rockingham Co, VA SELLERS are connected to Heinrich ZELLER/SELLER
immigrant on Queen
Elizabeth in 1738.
Some believe he is a cousin of Philip Henry SELLERS of PA who came in
1720's?
Don't know if ever proven-

"Frontier Forts of Western Pa" 1918  Vol 2 pages 229-230 et al has
letters from
Westmoreland Co Pa J.P. Arthur St Clair  of May 29,1774, et al, to the Pa
Gov
re the  planned murder of the friendly old Deleware,Joseph Wipey, by John
Hinkson,
James Cooper, and others. Arthur St Clair became a Rev War general,and
later,
Governor of the NW Territory til the 1802-03 winter.
July 12,1774,St Crair wrote that Hinkson and 18 others,in arms,visited
the
Westmoreland Co,pA court. and were allowed to leave,though there was
twice
as many others there.
 Penn Archives might have the 'legal" land sales of Pa in SW Pa,which
began in
April,1769. I think one had to travel to Philadelphia to the land office
to buy land.
Note,settlement started before then. Even "legal" settlement,if,with the
permission of
the British military at Ft Pitt,settlement was located near the line of
supply forts built
 in 1757-58 towarDS Ft Pitt. My own colony,from 1762,was near Stoney
Creek Fort,
Stoystown,now Somerset Co,Pa. Wipey was killed in ,now, Indiana Co,Pa.
  Many of Ky's pioneers were there to escape troubles back home.
Kenton,Boone,
Bryan,etc.
