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

In the years 1766-77 the rush of emigration was very great. Locations were selected, applications made, warrants secured, possession taken and improvements begun. From this time peaceable possession was obtained. This influx of settlers brought a demand for the division of the large townships, that the voting-places might not be at such great distances. At the July term of Cumberland County Court, Fermanagh township was divided, and from its territory was taken Greenwood, Penn's and Derry townships, the latter comprising nearly all of the present territory of Mifflin County

It was from the territory embraced in the townships of Lack, Milford, Fermanagh, Derry, Armagh, Wayne, Bald Eagle and Potter that the county of Mifflin was composed upon its erection in 1789.

Ellis' History of Mifflin County, Chapter 15, Granville Township ~ Mifflin County

On the 19th of January, 1792, Abraham Miller took out a warrant for one hundred acres of the land on Juniata River, embracing what is now Granville Station. This he sold, in 1811, to Daniel Brought, who, in 1798, came from Lititz, Lancaster County, to Richfield, Juniata County, where he rented a farm and lived until he purchased the land of Abraham Miller. His father, David Brought, was an officer of the Hessians, and was captured at Trenton N.J., in 1776. He was sent, with others, to Lititz, Lancaster County, and, liking the country and to escape being exchanged, he ran away and came to Juniata County. At the close of the Revolution he returned to Lititz and rented a farm there. He was joined in 1795 by his wife and sons, Daniel and David, who came from Germany to settle with him. Daniel, who came to what is now Greenville, in 1811, died in 1818, and left six children- David, John, Daniel, George, Ann and Mary. David married Jane Steel, a daughter of one of the early families. John became a farmer, and purchased large tracts of land in the township, and at his death owned nine hundred acres. Daniel became the owner of “Panther Spring” farm. His descendants own large tracts of land in the township.

George, the fourth son of Daniel, settled in the township where his descendants now reside.
Ann, a daughter of Daniel, became the wife of James Wilson, and settled in the county.
Her sister, Mary, married George Sellers, and also settled in the county.

Mifflin or Juniata Co?

Joseph Castle, a native of Londonderry, Ireland, emigrated to this country in 1778 and purchased a tract of land on one of the branches of Cocolamus Creek, where George McElwee now lives. He was a justice of the peace from 1819, many years. He died June 26, 1834, aged seventy-six years. His wife, Catharine, died October 4, 1826, aged fifty-one years. They left seven sons and three daughters. The sons were John, Robert, Hugh, William, David, Samuel and Joseph. John, Samuel and Joseph moved to the West. Robert settled on the homestead for several years and sold it to John Ettinger and moved to Lycoming County with his brother Hugh. William settled where J. J. Castle, his son, now lives. David married Sarah, daughter of Joseph Sellers, and settled on the farm now owned by C. and P. Nipple, and moved to Michigan in 1878. His son Joseph now lives in McAlisterville.

GREENWOOD TWN is now UNION twn (on township info)
In 1789 Mifflin County was erected and Greenwood township north of the county line became a township holding the same name in Mifflin County, and the part south remained as Greenwood in Cumberland. In the year 1791, at the June term of Mifflin County court, the following described territory was taken from Fermanagh and annexed to Greenwood, upon the petition here given,--

MONROE TWN, JUNIATA CO, PA

An old blacksmith’s account-book, containing many of the old names of this section, and beginning in 1786, is in possession of Mrs. William Sellers, near the old Sellers mill, now Bashore’s. This account-book was doubtless Michael Lauver’s.

The land next east of the Michael Lauver tract was taken up by Thomas Hewes, August 1, 1766, on application No. 164, who sold it to Samuel Wallis, a merchant of Philadelphia. It was patented by him as “Hewes’ Adventure,” and contained three hundred and twenty-six acres of land. He sold it, September 4, 1782, to Henry Drinker, also a merchant of Philadelphia. It was adjoining a tract, that then belonged to Jeremiah Lynn and Gideon Percival. A part of this tract was sold to Joseph and Jacob Sellers on February 4, 1794; and part Stephen Rees. Drinker owned other land near the tract. Joseph Sellers sold his interest in the land, January 15, 1796, to Jacob Sellers, Jr., and removed to what is now Delaware Township (Humphrey’s Mill), where he bought the mill property of John Hamilton, and lived and died there.

Jacob Sellers, Sr., in a German Bible in possession of the family, wrote on the title-page, “Come to this plantation in 1793.” The next year after the purchase was made, other land was purchased by him and his sons. Jacob built a grist-mill on a branch of the Cocolamus Creek, about 1790, on the site of the old lime-kiln, about two hundred rods from the present mill. On the 25th of July, 1826, Jacob Sellers, Jr., sold a part of the land to Peter Shellenberger, who later sold to William Sellers one hundred and seventy-nine acres, on which, in 1846, he built the present mill, now owned by John Bashore. Joseph and Jacob Sellers bought of Henry Drinker a tract of land in 1794, which was sold to Christley Lauver, a son-in-law. He resided at the mill and continued it some years. This was the land bought by Peter Shellenberger.

Jacob Sellers, Sr., died in 1831. His children were Joseph, Mary (who married John Brought), George, Barbara, Jacob, Elizabeth (Mrs. George Rothrock), Alvah, William, Achsah (Mrs. --- Wurtz, who settled in Mifflin County). Mrs. William Sellers is now living near the mill far advanced in years. She was a daughter of Jacob Pyle, who was also a settler in this region.
