FIRE. - The dwelling house of Nathan << Sellers>>  of Upper Darby,
was consumed by fire on Sunday evening last, about six
o. The fire was accidentally communicated to some
scattered shavings by a girl who had obtained them from a new
building adjoining, for the purpose of kindling a fire on the
hearth. Most of the furniture was saved. The loss to Mr. S. is
from 6 to 8000 dollars.

DANGER OF DELAY.
- In our last paper we noticed the destruction by fire, of the
dwelling house of Mr. << Sellers>> , of Upper Darby, the loss of
which is from six to eight thousand dollars, and we have since
learned that there was no insurance on the property. It has
always appeared unaccountable to us, and we believe we have
more than once referred to it, why more of the citizens of our
county in particular, did not avail themselves of the
advantages of an Institution located among them, the benefits
of which, in time of need, are so apparent to all. In the case
of Mr. << Sellers>> , we are informed that he had contemplated
insuring, but unfortunately delayed it until the devouring
element laid waste that which took the labor of years to
accumulate.

To the Public. WHEREAS I have obtained a Patent Right for a
mill of original construction wholly differing in principle
from any heretofore offered to the public; and whereas John

some supposed right of theirs: Now this is to caution said

said Patent, nor to intimidate the public from reposing
confidence in its security; as I am determined to maintain my
said right against all invasions thereof. Those who are
disposed to purchase of me after viewing both, I will bear

Death Notice
On Saturday the 14th inst. at his late residence in Upper
Darby, NATHAN << SELLERS>> , Sen. at an advanced age. Few persons
have left behind them a higher character for usefulness and
disinterested benevolence, than the deceased. When a citizen
of Philadelphia, so universally was he esteemed, by all
political parties, all religious sects, by all ranks and all
conditions of people, that during the highest time of party
excitement, he was, for a series, elected to the city council,
without opposition, and was always reputed one of its most
useful, enterprising and industrious members. Possessed of
ample means and a benevolent disposition, the poor have lost a
friend and benefactor, and a numerous circle of relatives and
friends, will mourn the irreparable loss of an upright
citizen, an amiable companion, and an exemplary christian.

Charles Wilson Peale
        From:
             William C Trott <trottbt@hal-pc.org>
          Will try to make this brief.  Anyone wanting the full quotation please
reply and I will send it but there is nothing more than showing the
relationship:

>From article in the Houston Chronicle, Sunday August 1, 1999. The
article was about Charles Wilson Peale, the famous portrait painter of
the late 1700's and early 1800's and his son Raphaelle, who was also a
great painter, though more into still life:

".... she had unearthed a little-known memoir by ESCOL SELLERS, the
nephew of Raphaelle Peale, in the archives .... SELLERS, who was a young
boy when Raphaelle Peale died, indicated that his uncle had succumbed
not to the effects of alcoholism, as his family had long contended, but
of slow poisoning by heavy metals.  While SELLERS did not blame his
grandfather for Raphaelle's death, he did cast doubt on the family's
story that Uncle Raphaell had been ...."

This indicates that Charles Wilson Peale had a daughter who had married
a SELLERS.  Raphaelle died in 1825 at age of 51 and Charles Wilson in
1827 at age 86.  More information may be available from the Charles
Wilson Peale Family Papers at the National Portrait Gallery in
Washington DC.

Just thought some one might be interested.

===========================


I keep seeing all the interest in the Sellers family. Those who are should
search for the Newlin Mills website. The Newlin;'s and the Sellers were closely
intertwined. As I recall, the Newlin Mill is located in Concord, PA or
thereabouts. Several years ago I attended a several day gathering there at which
many papers were presented since I was/am interested in the Newlin line.. One
of the Sellers was the head of the Newlin Mills Foundation at that time and
may still be. After a long delay, they published a volume of the talks given.
It would be worth your while to call or e-mail to see how much of that
collection of papers directly addresses the Sellers family...or other items they
have for sale in the headquarters building. I can't remember more details, but
everyone there knew their family ancestors, and about half of the attendees
were Sellers descendants. Mike Daley Carlisle, PA Jmdgen@aol.com
