Lucie, his wife,
        and John Funston and Mary, his wife, by their joint deed dated
June 10, 1788,
        conveyed to Philip Seller in fee.

        He died October 6, 1808, aged eighty-four years, according to
the records of
        Indian Creek Church, consequently he was born in 1724. He is
said to have been
        buried in the church-yard of the same church, and also several
of his children.

        The records at Easton, Pennsylvania, record that letters of
administration were
        granted upon the estate of Philip Sellers, October 17, 1808, to
Philip Sellers and
        John Geisinger,
Jr., the sureties being Jacob Hartzell and Philip Newcomer, all of Upper
Saucon
        township, the widow, Barbara Sellers, having filed renunciation
October 15, 1808.

        There was a proceeding in partition of the real estate of Philip
Sellers which is
        recorded in the Orphans' Court at Easton in Liber VIII, folio
204. At a Court held
        November 21, 1809, the petition was presented of Philip
"Seller," third son of Philip
        "Seller," late of Upper Saucon township, Northampton (now
Lehigh) County,
        yeoman, deceased, setting forth that the petitioner's father
died intestate leaving a
        widow, Barbara, and issue, the petitioner, John, George,
Abraham, David, Jacob,
        William, Isaac, Catharine, wife of Abraham Darstone, Elizabeth,
wife of John
        Brunner, since deceased, leaving issue Margaret, wife of John
Brunner, Polly,
        widow of Henry Rohr, Eve, wife of Philip Hittle, Susanna, and
Hannah, wife of
        John Geisinger; that said intestate left three tracts of land,
situate in Upper Saucon
        township, one containing thirty acres and one hundred and
twenty-six perches,
        another containing seven acres, and the third containing
seventy-five acres. The
        Court ordered an inquest, which was returned December 16, 1809
(see Liber
        VIII, folio 229), finding the land incapable of division without
prejudice, whereupon
        the Court ordered that as John Sellers and George Sellers, two
of the eldest heirs,
        lived in North Carolina, notice of the proceedings should be
advertised in the
        Aurora and the Northampton, according to law. Subsequently
(Liber VIII, folio
        246), the Court ordered that, as notice had been published, the
valuation fixed by
        the inquest should be approved, and, as none of the other heirs
appeared, Philip
        "Seller," son of said intestate, appearing and being willing to
take the real estate at
        the valuation fixed by the inquest, the Court so ordered,
subject to the payment of
        the dividends of the other heirs.

        The subsequent conveyance of part of this land is recorded at
Easton in Liber G,
        Vol. 3, folio 380. The deed was
dated June 10, 1811, and recites a conveyance by Philip "Seller," of
Upper Saucon
        township, and Susanna, his wife, to Jacob Arnold, of the same
place.

        As it has not been ascertained whether Philip Sellers married
more than once, it is
        presumed that his wife Barbara was the mother of the following
issue:

              12. John, settled in North Carolina.
              13. George, settled in North Carolina.
              14. Philip
              15. Abraham
              16. David
              17. Jacob
              18. William
              19. Isaac
              20. Catharine, m. Abraham Darstone. (Derstine? Bucks Co,PA-msh)
              21. Elizabeth, m. John Brunner. Issue:
                    21a. Margaret, m. John Brunner.
              22. Polly, m. Henry Rohr, Jan. 1, 1797. (Pres. Ch.,
                    Abington, Pa.; Pa. Ar., 2d Ser., Vol. 9, p.
                    369).
                    (Abington = Mont Co, Pa,msh)
              23. Eve, m. Philip Hittle.
              24. Susanna
              25. Hannah, m. John Geisinger.
