                    Surname: SELLERS, WATSON, CLEAVER

Mary Ann SELLERS was born in Annville, Lebanon County, PA, 7 Mar 1816. She died 6 Mar
1882 in Clearfield County. Since this was about the time Lebanon County was formed from
Dauphin, I figure records could be either place. Her father was Joseph SELLERS, bn 23 Feb 1784
died abt 1852. Her mother, Mary Ann CLEAVER was born in Friendly, Tyler County, WV. This
would be before Tyler County was formed. I think they had eleven children.

Joseph WATSON and Mary Ann SELLERS were married in 1835, possibly in the Stormstown
area of Centre County PA (SW corner of the county with Quaker and non-Quaker families). I know
her family was in this community prior to 1935. Joseph and Mary Ann's first child was born in
Milesburg, Centre Co (NE corner of the county - no Quakers) but I cannot find record of their
marriage in Centre County, PA. Looks like another eleven children.

I can track the SELLERS line back to the immigrants who came to Chester County, PA with the
Quaker immigration in late 1600's early 1700's.

Have no earlier information on CLEAVER or WATSON. SELLERS were Quaker prior to 1800,
but when and why did someone appear in WV briefly? Was there a Quaker community is this area
at that time? This line was not Quaker by 1835. I sent a query to Tyler County.

Any help appreciated. Thanks,

Judy Heald
