Philip H. spelled his name Soller, but the English form is invariably Sellers. His arrival in Pennsylvania is recorded in "Colonial Records of Pennsylvania," vol. iii., p. 332, September 11, 1728, a number of Palatines with their families, about ninety, immigrated in the ship, "James Goodwill," David Crocket, master, from Rotterdam, last from Deal, whence she sailed June 15. The name of Philip Heinrich Sellers appears in the list. He was married before coming to Pennsylvania, the Christian name of his wife being Catharina, Several of their children were born in Germany. After spending a short time in Philadelphia he purchased a tract in Bucks county on the north branch of the Perkiomen.

Both their wills are on file in Philadelphia. Children: Philip, Leonard, Philip Henry, John, Paul, Peter, Jacob, Elizabeth, Magdalena and Margaret. It is from one of these sons that William U.

He was a private of One Hundred and Forty-second Regiment, Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry, and served three years and six months. He saw hard service with the Army of the Potomac and fought at Bull Run, Antietam, Gettysburg and many other battles and skirmishes. After the war he returned to Pennsylvania and engaged in the manufacture of lumber. He now lives on a small farm at Ursina, Pennsylvania, and does a general teaming business. He is a Democrat, and a member of the Methodist Episcopal church. He married Sarah, daughter of William Lenhart, a crippled shoemaker, who gave two of his sons to his country. Others of his sons enlisted, but two were killed in battle, the others returning in safety. She is a member of the Methodist Eplscopal church. Children of Augustus Sellers: William U., of whom further; Jennie E., resides at home; Lee, a hotel keeper at Confluence. Their first born, a daughter, died in infancy.

(III) William U., eldest son of Augustus Sellers, was born in Somerset county, Pennsylvania, November 8, 1869. He was educated in the public schools of Ursina, and he entered the employ of the Baltimore & Ohio railroad as a boy. In 1884 he entered the train service and has passed through several grades of service, now being a freight conductor. Since entering the train service he has made his home in Conneilsville. He is a member of the Order of Railway Conductors, the Fraternal Order of Eagles and the Knights of the Maccabees. He is a Democrat, and an attendant of the Methodist Episcopal church, of which his wife is a member.

He married, June 10, 1896, Emma Brant, born at Bedford Mills, Bedford county, Pennsylvania, daughter of John and Ella Brant. Children: Ruth Mae, born July 24, 1898; Frank H., October 11, 1902; Charles Samuel, November 14, 1904; Martha Virginia, August 18, 1910.
