Mari!
I just spend sometime writing to you all and comes out
as failed delivery.What I have so far on these Crouses
I have loaded on my family treemaker wich I am having
a hard time to export since I am not to good with this
computer yet.But I will be happy to print out what I
have for you and send it by snailmail.
My husbands line does not directly connect with the
Sellars but I have developed an intrest for all the
Crouses to see where they went ect.
Startin in the beginning there was Nicholas Crouse b.
1727 maybe earlier who married Eva
Crap/Craph/Crop/Croph.They came to Greene Co. and died
here.They had a son William Crouse b.1765-1774,he
married Elizabeth?.One of their sons William Crouse b.
abt.1804 died Jan.22,1866 in Greene Co. Pa.He married
Mary Sellars d/o George Sellars.George Sellars also
had two sons that married two sisters of William.
Any how William and Mary had a son Nathan b. abt.1829
in Greene Co. that married Catherine Stewart b. 1836
d/o Jesse and Rachel Stewart. Nathan died in the civil
war late in the war.I have received that they had 4
children:Rachel,Mary Jane,Thomas and Lenora.Lenora b.
4-16-1865.
Now I also received a letter saying that Catherine
Stewart d/o Jesse Stewart and Rachel married William
Crouse and had 3 children:Nora,Lizzie and William.Fits
with the names.
I found a paper at Cornerston from Church of
Christ,Pleasan Ridge,Gr.Co.Pa.2 miles s.w. of
Waynesburg.In there it says that Catherine Stewart d/o
Jesse and Rachel Stewart married William Crouse.No
dates.
This William could be Nathans brother.What happened
here?Did William die or did they get a divorce? I do
not know right now.
1880 census of Center twp.Gr.Co.Pa
Stewart Danile 67 farmer
Catherine 44 wife
H.W. 26 son works on farm
Charley 2 son
Crouse:
Nora 15 stepdaughter
Lizzie 9 stepdaughter
William 5 stepson
1880 census Center twp.
Orndoff William....
Crouse Thomas 18 boarder farmer
1880 census center twp
Abner Huge...
Crouse Mary Jane 24 servant.
This is all I know for now.Do not get excited I will
surely share what I have.And I supose that the durbin
adress in for Helen.Wich I do belive lives around the
area where I live.I can hand deliver it to you.I live
around Old Concord.
If there is anything else I can help with let me know.
Have a nice day.

Hi Pia, I need your help. My name is Dennis H. I was the one that gave you
the name and address of Carol Sellers of Salem Ill. a few months back. I
will
be sending an e-mail with this question to Carol, Marie, and Jim. I come
from
the line of George and Mary Sellers of Green County Pa. This line of the
Sellers of Green County has laid dormant, =not worked, as far as the
genealogy research that has been done. For I have as yet came across
another
researching this family line. I don't want to seem to be opening a
Pandora's
box. But is there any compiling evidence, that John and Sarah ( Crouse )
Sellers had a son named George.? We know that the 1820 Census of Green
County, John, is listed having a son age under 10.  And that John is not
listed for this same county 1830 census. We do find John living in Perry
Twp
Monroe County Ohio in the 1840 census address given as 018.  And close by
or
next door to John, address 019 is a William Sellers. Just assuming that
this
William Sellers is listed as age between 20/30. Could this be John's son
that
was listed in said 1820 census? (Has any one done research on this William
Sellers.? ) I know that I am walking on thin ice hear, for I have done very
little research on this family line. I know speaking for myself and for
Carol, we have not found John in the Monroe County 1850 Census.( has any
one
else found him in said census.?)  In the Genealogy Queries where I came
upon
your name and your research on this George Sellers born in Green County
June
1815, and who married a Evaline, and who died in Monroe County Ohio Oct,
30.1884, you seem to tie this George with the family of Samuel Sellers, who
was the son of John. Should I assume that sense you are working this
Sellers
line, that you have some kind of Will or other document that has proven
this
family connection? I do take it that you have some proof that has his birth
1815, and from Green Co.. Pa.-- I am not saying that this George is not
John's son, but is there any actual document proof that John had a son name
George?  The reason that I ask, is while I was in Waynesburg Pa. doing
research on my family line, I ran into a man at the courthouse that had
also
done research on the Sellers. And sense my family line has remain dormant,
with no one researching it, he just assumed that the Atkinson Sellers that
married an Elizabeth Morris in Green County was the son of David Sellers.
And
what I am wondering is, if there isn't any actual documents that list
George
as the son of John. Could this be the same situation as was with Atkinson??
That there is this George Sellers born in Green County year 1815, And just
where does he fit in?  We know for sure that George and Mary Sellers had a
son George, and that by the 1840 Census of Center Twp. That this son George
was born between 1810/20. and by the 1850 census that he seems to have left
the county for parts unknown. I know that some might say, what does it
matter
who son this George Sellers is, John's or George and Mary's, that we all
descended from the line of Christian and Elizabeth Sellers, but to us who
have been bitten by this genealogy bug, the fun and challenge is to sort
out,
just what kid belongs to who. And without taking any shortcuts.  If any one
of you, have said document proof, I will put this possibility aside, and
keep
on searching for my George. IM hopeful that you will take the time to
answer
this letter.  Thanks.    fdh.  Dennis.
