Descendants of John Leonard Sellers
Generation No. 1

1.  JOHN LEONARD5 SELLERS  (PHILIP HENRY4, JOHN LEONARD3, PHILIP HENRY2, HANS ADAM1 SOLLER) was born November 22, 1782 in Bucks Cnty PA, and died September 03, 1860 in Allen Cnty OH.  He married ELIZABETH WENGER in PA, daughter of JOHN WENGER and CATHERINE FUNK.

Notes for JOHN LEONARD SELLERS:
The Allen Cnty Ohio Gierhart Family Inn site provides map which names the site with Leonard and wife as St Paul's Evangelical Lutheran Cemetery. (Coded PE-7, Perry Township 7). Facility on East side of road must be the Fletcher Cemetery.(PE-2). Same site added stone data in Apr 98. Death dates changed to use that information. Birth date for Leonard provided by Joanna Baker. From date of death, using 30 day months, that checks within a couple of days.

Leonard was baptised in the Indian Creek Reformed church in what was then Montgomery Cnty PA. Michael and Samuel were also reported as baptised in this church. Other children were not baptised in this church. Leonard moved with his family to the Franklin Cnty PA circa 1795. In Mar of 1828, his first son, Joseph was born in the vicinity of Waynesboro, according to Victor N. Sellers papers. Victor was a grandson of Joseph. Data shown for Elizabeth from grave data.

Date of departure for Ohio is unknown and arrival is shown as 1836 or 37. Date for birth dates and locations indicate arrival in Ohio in 1837. Marie at mari@netins.net provided land documentation showing Leonard signing for 640 acres on Oct 10, 1840. A Jacob Sellers and a John Sellers both signed for land on the same day. A John and Susan Sellers are both in St Paul's also. John died in 1882 and Susan in 1892. Parents are question mark now..The relationship to Jacob,if any , is also still in question. 8-98.rls.
 
 

Notes for ELIZABETH WENGER:
Victor N. Sellers papers indicate name was Anna Weingert. Marie Sellers Holliger's Allen Cnty web page showed Elizabeth Wenger. Both Wengard and Wengerd show up in notes.  Wenger is right. Mary Ann Fokken, Maryann661@aol.com asked for info and concluded, based on my data, that Elizabeth was a Wenger. She then provided for the Wenger family, some of which is reflected in my database. Her family includes many different spellings of the name also. She was also kind to provide many pages of census data on Sellers in the Allen/Auglaize Cnty area from 1850-1920. Census data from microfilm in MO library.

Notes for JOHN WENGARD SELLERS:
John and wife are buried in same location as Leonard and wife, St Paul's Lutheran. John and family reflected in Perry Twp,Allen Cnty census data in 1880.  This same data reflects only Edwina, Jennie, and Alice still at home. Jennie must be dau born in1864. A Wm Ridenour is also shown living with family in 1880. The 1900 census shows John and Mary still in same location with Carlton Ford, born in Sept 87, a grandson, and Mary M Conkle, mother in law, born in NY in 1811 living with them.
 

Notes for MARY MELISSA CONKLE:
All the data for Conkel family is from typed notes done by Loren Sellers from a sheet folded in the John W. Sellers family bible. As I recall, there are quite a few Conkle family members resting in St Paul's Lutheran Cemetery south of Lima,Ohio. rls
Family wedding date confirmed by LDS date from Library in Salt Lake.
LDS data shows Conkle.  Listing for this family from notes in John W. Sellers Bible show name spelled as Conkel. rls 5-11-98. Census data from 1920 list Mary  as Mary Ann Sellers,87, living with son-in-law,John W. Faulkner.

are shown on handwritten list. Date if death from data in letter from Ms Diller, Pandora, OH in Feb 65.
 

17. iii. GEORGE W SELLERS, b. August 19, 1856, OH.
 iv. MARY ELIZABETH SELLERS, b. July 17, 1858; d. August 15, 1858.

Notes for MARY ELIZABETH SELLERS:
This is strange. Mary Elizabeth is not mentioned on handwritten list and sister Ruth shows being born
just over a month later.....Could it be that both perished ?  One may have been born in 1857 vice 1858.
Roger 3-29-98.
 

 v. RUTH SELLERS, b. August 28, 1858.

Notes for RUTH SELLERS:
Birth date in question. It could be 1857,8, or 9 ?? .  Name is not shown on handwritten list either.
Letter from Ms Diller of Pandora does not list Ruth but shows an infant died at birth. This must be the one.
 

18. vi. EDWINA SELLERS, b. January 12, 1861.

4.  HENRY6 SELLERS (JOHN LEONARD5, PHILIP HENRY4, JOHN LEONARD3, PHILIP HENRY2, HANS ADAM1 SOLLER) was born September 28, 1831 in Franklin Cnty  PA, and died 1906 in Auglaize Cnty  OH.  He married LAVINA DANNER November 15, 1863 in Either Allen or Auglaize Cnty OH.

Notes for HENRY SELLERS:
Marriage data from LDS listing. Lovina is spelling of wife's name on that list. Bio shows Lavina. Henry
had over 500 acres at his death in 1906. He settled on a woodland farm about a mile east of the Lima road in the upper part of Duchouquet Twp. The 1880 census data has his age wrong. He was 39 on
1870 census and only aged three years by 1880. Census data from several years confirms locale. The
names of the children vary from census to census. The 1900 census data shows Henry, Lavina, and three children still at home, Henry A,22, Dellie F, 20, and Grover C,17.

The passage of Henry in 1906, confirmed by cemetery and family records. Henry and Lavina (or Lovina)
both lie with my parents in St Mathews Lutheran, with Lovina shown in cemetery data from Allen Cnty
Ohio.  Some of the spelling in 1910 Soundex for Auglaize Cnty is wild. Lavina is now shown at 65 yrs as
Lorida Sellers. Charles A. ,44, is shown as Carles A. , and Henry P. Sellers,33, Lorina Sellers,11, and Harry Sellers 7, are all shown living with Henry Brantigan. Brantigan is shown as son in law of Lorida.
This grouping of folks makes sense. Charles A. Sellers's wife passed on in 1903. His son must
have been Harry J.  A Harry J Sellers born in 1903 rests in St Mathews.

My records, Loren's notes, show Henry Breitagan vice Brantigan. Henry's son Milo is shown with (homeplace) after his name. The name is familiar to me and I believe that Milo farmed my grandfathers,James B. Sellers, small farm on a share basis when I was a child. rls.
 
 
 

Notes for LAVINA DANNER:
Birth and death years from St Mathew's data provided by Mark Gierhar in Jun 98. Family notes indicate
Lavina but cemetery data shows Lovina.
 

Children of HENRY SELLERS and LAVINA DANNER are:
21. i. CHARLES A.7 SELLERS, b. August 04, 1865, Duchoquet Twp, Auglaize Cnty, OH; d. 1906, Duchoquet Twp, Auglaize Cnty, OH.
22. ii. SARAH R. SELLERS, b. Abt. 1868, Auglaize Cnty  OH.
 iii. LOUISA SELLERS, b. Abt. 1870, Auglaize Cnty  OH; m. EZRA FRYER.

Notes for LOUISA SELLERS:
Bio provided by Mary Ann Fokken,Jul 98, shows name as Louisa.. She is shown as Eliza on 1880 census.
 

 iv. HENRY P. SELLERS, b. August 1877, Auglaize Cnty  OH; d. Abt. 1940, Allen Cnty OH.

Notes for HENRY P. SELLERS:
One list has this man shown as Penrow. Handwritten is Penroe, clearly.
He is listed as a life long bachelor. Bio data on father shows two sons Henry and Grover. This then must
be Henry not Penrow. Cemetery data for St Mathew's shows Henry P. with 1877-1940 life span. He is also listed right after Henry  and Lovina.
 
 

23. v. DELLA SELLERS, b. March 1880, Auglaize Cnty  OH.
24. vi. GROVER C. SELLERS, b. September 1882, Auglaize Cnty  OH.

5.  SAMUEL6 SELLERS (JOHN LEONARD5, PHILIP HENRY4, JOHN LEONARD3, PHILIP HENRY2, HANS ADAM1 SOLLER) was born December 06, 1833 in Franklin Cnty  PA, and died September 09, 1906 in Auglaize Cnty  OH.  He married ELIZA BARTON September 14, 1865 in Allen Cnty OH.

Notes for SAMUEL SELLERS:
Loren's notes indicate 16 children from this union. His typed list, from Victor N. Sellers papers, shows 11 names and some blanks. Cemetery data from Allen Cnty,Gierhart site show Barton/Stevenson Cemetery in Perry Township with Samuel and Eliza and others which appear related. Since "Liza" was a Barton, this is certainly a logical resting place for them. John Barton was my best man, and a cousin. We never really dug into that. His father was Gene Barton and mom was Blanche. This has to be that "cousin" link. Loren's notes also indicate Samuel was buried "down by the river near Harold Sellers's place. Location of cemetery appears to correlate with this note.rls.

Samuel's birth shown in written notes as 2-6-1833 but this was listing with many months missing. 12-6-33 is shown in cemetery data and assumed correct. Two children,who died very young are listed in cemetery data which also follows large family number. This brings list to 14 children with names. Wedding data from  LDS list. 5-11-98 rls. Franklin added in Jul 98 as he shows in in 1870 and 1880 census. The 1880 shows what must be a pair of twins, Laura and Nannie both age 3. Mary shows at 10/12 age on 1870 census and is still a mystery.
 

Notes for ELIZA BARTON:
Lady was named as "Liza" on Loren's notes. Age on 1880 census shown as 42..
 

Children of SAMUEL SELLERS and ELIZA BARTON are:
 i. CHARLES L7 SELLERS.

Notes for CHARLES L SELLERS:
This son shown with no dates but as son of S and E. He must have died as an infant.
 

 ii. MARTHA E. SELLERS, b. Abt. 1858; m. W. SIEBERT OTHO, September 24, 1882, Auglaize Cnty  OH.

Notes for W. SIEBERT OTHO:
Marriage data for Auglaize county shows W. Seibert Otho as husband.  This has to be man but name is
still ?...
 

 iii. HENRY SELLERS, b. February 20, 1860, Allen or Augliaze Cnty Ohio; d. May 22, 1906, Allen  or Auglaize Cnty OH.

Notes for HENRY SELLERS:
A bachelor....Birth and death dates taken from data from Barton/Stevenson Cemetery,located near Auglaize River south of Lima. This appears logical and 1990 census shows him still with father.
Age shown on cemetery data at 46y,3m,2d. Census data checks with birth date shown also.
 

 iv. NANCY E SELLERS, b. Abt. August 19, 1861, Allen or Auglaize Cnty OH; d. January 17, 1864, Allen  or Auglaize Cnty OH.

Notes for NANCY E SELLERS:
Census data for 1880 shows Nannie age 3. This tracks other info. Census shows both Laura and Nannie
with age of 3, ie birth abt 1877....strange. Nancy E. clearly shown in cemetery data with parents passing
on 17Jan1864  at 2 years plus.
 

25. v. JOSEPH MCCLELLAN SELLERS, b. 1862, Allen Cnty OH; d. 1924, Allen Cnty OH.

 ix. NORA SELLERS, b. Abt. 1868; m. (1) HENRY MOWERY; m. (2) BEECHER FOX, May 25, 1895, Auglaize Cnty  OH.

Notes for NORA SELLERS:
According to notes from Victor N. Sellers papers, Nora was married twice. Loren guessed that Squire Fox was the second. Shown in 1870 census as Nona age 2. Auglaize Cnty data shows Beecher Fox wedding
Laura Sellers on date shown. Both names are unique.
 

28. x. JOHN SELLERS, b. Abt. 1869, OH; d. Abt. 1939, Allen  or Auglaize Cnty OH.
 xi. HULDA SELLERS, b. Abt. 1872; m. WESLEY BINER.

Notes for HULDA SELLERS:
Name changed to Hilda from Hulda based on 1880 census data.rls But 1900 data shows Hulda living
with Sarah Weisanthal in Ottawa Twp, Allen Cnty. Back to Hulda...Census data shows birth as May 1870
while 1880 census lists Hulda as 8. Probably same lady but some question.
 

 xii. LILLIE SELLERS, b. February 28, 1873, Allen or Auglaize Cnty OH; d. January 19, 1880, Allen  or Auglaize Cnty OH.

Notes for LILLIE SELLERS:
Cemetery data indicates 29Feb1873 as birth data. Program indicates that was not a leap
year so 28 Feb shown here.
 

29. xiii. LEWIS SELLERS, b. Abt. March 1875, Auglaize Cnty  OH.
 xiv. LAURA SELLERS, b. Abt. 1877.
 xv. NANNIE SELLERS, b. Abt. 1877.
 xvi. HARMON SELLERS, b. February 1880, Ohio; d. 1923, Ohio.

Notes for HARMON SELLERS:
Harmon was evidently known as Jack Sellers also. He was a bachelor. Data from papers of Victor N. Sellers. 4-20-98. Message from Jill May,JA62@aol.com,provided info on birth and death. Harmon buried in St Matthew's Lutheran with my parents,etc. I am not sure what is old section and what is new. Howard and Helen are in new one tho. 1900 census data shows Herman which must be Harmon mis-spelled.
 

 xvii. PEARL R. SELLERS, b. Abt. February 1882; m. DAN MOHLER.

Notes for PEARL R. SELLERS:
Date of birth here from 1990 census where she is shown as Pearl R. born in Feb 82.

Notes for CATHERINE SELLERS:
Marriage data from LDS listing. Husband's name spelled Cumerine on that listing.
Loren typed Crumrine clearly for David and Leah Crumrine, wife of Joseph. rls.5-11-98
 

Child of CATHERINE SELLERS and DAVID CRUMRINE is:

7.  SUSAN6 SELLERS (JOHN LEONARD5, PHILIP HENRY4, JOHN LEONARD3, PHILIP HENRY2, HANS ADAM1 SOLLER) was born March 16, 1837 in PA, and died 1911.  She married JEROME WALTON December 29, 1858 in Allen Cnty OH.

Notes for SUSAN SELLERS:
Marriage data from LDS listing. Husband's name shown there as Jerome Walters. Walton shown clearly in all family lists. Name retained. rls. Census and bio data obtained in Jul 98 confirm Walton as correct.
Partial quote of Portrait & Biographical Record-Auglaize County. "Jerome B. Walton is one of the progressive farmers and well to do citizens of Union Twp, Auglaize county.  160 Acres Section 5...Jerome B. Walton b 27May1833 in Franklin Co Ohio and came to Auglaize County when 3 years old."
This same story lists her birth day as 16Mar1837. My data did not show month. Place of birth shows
Bucks Cnty PA which must be an error, Franklin Cnty is almost certainly birth place. It is possible she was born enroute to Ohio. This all points to arrival in Lima in 1837. This article written after 1890 and notes only three living children, Neola, then Ms J.C. Watt, Eliza Ellen ,Ms Frank Rigdon,  and F.P. who married Miss Etta Lusk. All three children listed then lived in Union Township with F.P. on the "home place".
 

Notes for JEROME WALTON:
From the same bio quoted in notes for Susan , "Jerome-school dricetor 30 years, assessor 4 years and land appraiser 1880-90 and Democrat. Mrs Walton holds membership in the Lutheran church and is a lady of benevolent impulses, to whom the destitute nver applear for aid in vain."

The 1920 census has both g grandparents living in Auglaize Cnty, Cridersville, at age 80 for William and
age 74 for Sarah J. The 1870 census data shows Elnore 5, Ida 3, and Lawrena at 10/12. This does not track other info. Elnora must be Cora shown in Loren's notes.

Notes for CHARLES A. SELLERS:
Bio shows Charles "lived all his life in the Cridersville neighborhood". Bio also showed birthdate 10 years too early in 1856. 1880 census data would give 1866. Bio was published "somewhere" after
Henry's death in 1906. 1900 census data shows birth as Aug 1865. Son shown in that census as William Layton vice Harry in later bio.  A "William Layton" born in 1882 in Ohio is shown on 1890 Soundex.  The 1920 soundex shows Lovina age 21 and John H age 16.

After showing in the 1910 Soundex living with sister Della and Henry Breitagan, the 1920 data shows
Charles in Auglaize Cnty with Lovina, 21, John H. 16, and Henry 42, his brother living together.

Bio states lady died in 1903 and is buried in Lutheran Cemetery ,north of Cridersville. That is St Mathew's Cemetery.
 

Children of CHARLES SELLERS and EMMA HENGSTLER are:
 i. LAVINA8 SELLERS, b. November 1898.

Notes for LAVINA SELLERS:
The name here is probably Lavina after her grandmother, Lavina Danner Sellers. She is shown on
1910 Soundex census data as Lorina Sellers,11. Other names in that data are spelled poorly.
 

 ii. HARRY JOHN SELLERS, b. 1903, Allen  or Auglaize Cnty OH; d. 1984, Allen  or Auglaize Cnty OH; m. LUCILLE L..

Notes for HARRY JOHN SELLERS:
Both of these folks rest in St Mathew's Lutheran in Allen Cnty. This is just south of Cridersville, OH in Auglaize Cnty. Harry, as a child, apparently lived very near my father's home about 8 miles south of Lima on what is now Town Line Rd. rls My father's notes call out Harry as son, not John H.
 

22.  SARAH R.7 SELLERS (HENRY6, JOHN LEONARD5, PHILIP HENRY4, JOHN LEONARD3, PHILIP HENRY2, HANS ADAM1 SOLLER) was born Abt. 1868 in Auglaize Cnty  OH.  She married ALLEN BURDEN.

Notes for SARAH R. SELLERS:
Shown on handwritten notes as "Settie". There may have been 3 children. List shows Ressie, then Vera Cleady.  Last could been another person. 1880 census data shows Sarah as 12, Eliza as 10, and another daughter just a few months old. The 1900 Soundex shows Della still as home and born in Mar 1880. The 1870 census shows Sarah R, age 2. This must be real name of child. R must be Rosetta.
 

Children of SARAH SELLERS and ALLEN BURDEN are:
 i. RESSIE8 BURDEN.
 ii. VERA BURDEN.

23.  DELLA7 SELLERS (HENRY6, JOHN LEONARD5, PHILIP HENRY4, JOHN LEONARD3, PHILIP HENRY2, HANS ADAM1 SOLLER) was born March 1880 in Auglaize Cnty  OH.  She married HENRY BREITAGAN.

Notes for DELLA SELLERS:
Loren has written (homeplace) after Milo's name. I believe he did farming on James Byron Sellers farm on sharing basis.  The name is familiar. Roger 3-29-98.
 

Child of DELLA SELLERS and HENRY BREITAGAN is:
 i. MILO8 BREITAGAN.

24.  GROVER C.7 SELLERS (HENRY6, JOHN LEONARD5, PHILIP HENRY4, JOHN LEONARD3, PHILIP HENRY2, HANS ADAM1 SOLLER) was born September 1882 in Auglaize Cnty  OH.  He married ADDIE.

Notes for JOSEPH MCCLELLAN SELLERS:
Both Joseph and Emma are buried in St Mathew's. Birth and death dates from cemetery info provided by Jill May in Apr 98.  Allen Cnty Cemetery data also shows same data. Data makes sense since Harmon, also son of Samuel was listed with these folks. Since father Samuel was born in 1833, and he had tons of kids, birth dates track. Harmon was about 5 children after Joseph. Listed as Joe on some lists. Full name from LDS marriage listing.

Census ,Soundex, for 1910 confirms data. Data for 1920 shows couple in Auglaize Cnty with no children
listed.
 

Notes for EMMA M. LOURY:
Spelling of last name here is a puzzle. Loury in LDS listing used for marriage data. Shown
as Long on another typed list from Victor N. Sellers papers. Lowry is another logical guess.
 

Children of JOSEPH SELLERS and EMMA LOURY are:
42. i. OREL DAVID8 SELLERS, b. October 18, 1889, Oh; d. June 26, 1939, Allen  or Auglaize Cnty OH.
 ii. ROY SELLERS, b. Abt. 1901.

26.  FRANKIN SHERMAN7 SELLERS (SAMUEL6, JOHN LEONARD5, PHILIP HENRY4, JOHN LEONARD3, PHILIP HENRY2, HANS ADAM1 SOLLER) was born Abt. December 1864.  He married MARY ELIZABETH RITCHIE May 28, 1885 in Auglaize Cnty  OH.

Notes for FRANKIN SHERMAN SELLERS:
Date shown here from variety of sources. Both husband and wife's names appear to have been scrambled. Loren's notes from Victor N Sellers papers typed clearly show Sherman married to Lizzie Ritchie with children Guerney, Orlo, Iona, and Anna Marie. The 1990 census has Sherman with Mary E as wife and and two young children, Charles G and Iona. 1880 census does not show Sherman as child of Samuel but shows a Franklin about 16. Franklin was not on Loren's list. Marraige data from Auglaize Cnty shows Frank S. Sellers being married to Lizzie M. Ritchie on 5-28-1885. As of 8Aug98, I am assuming the Frank S is really F Sherman Sellers and the Lizzie very probably was Mary Elizabeth vice Elizabeth M. Census data shows Franklin as child 06 in 1870.  Name was well be Franklin Sherman.
The 1910 census lists Frank S Sellers with wife Mary E three years his senior and  four children, Charles G., 20,Iona 15, Orlo 6, and Marie 4. The 1920 census shows Frank S with Mary C and three children still
at home in Allen Cnty, Guerney 28, Orlo 17, and Anna Marie 14.
 

Notes for MARY ELIZABETH RITCHIE:
Shown as Lizzie Ritchie in Auglaize wedding data and in Loren's notes.

27.  ALBERT7 SELLERS (SAMUEL6, JOHN LEONARD5, PHILIP HENRY4, JOHN LEONARD3, PHILIP HENRY2, HANS ADAM1 SOLLER) was born October 1867 in OH.  He married EMMA C. MOWERY.

Notes for ALBERT SELLERS:
From Victor N. Sellers papers. Apparently Albert was also known as "Mac". Dates refined some from
1900 Soundex for Allen Cnty, Shawnee Twp. Four children reflected in that census. 1910 census for Auglaize Cnty shows family with five children with two born after 1900.....! Children then listed as Ray,19,Anna 16, Hazel 13, Elza (son) 8, and Ruth 1. The 1920 data shows two more children.
 

Children of ALBERT SELLERS and EMMA MOWERY are:

Notes for JOHN SELLERS:
Notes from Victor N. Sellers papers indicate John was married twice. Mead must be the second lady.
1900 census shows he and Sarah A in Cridersville. John and Sarah A shown resting in St Mathew's which also tracks since that is just south of Cridersville. 1910 census shows John and Anneta both 40 and Dasna Biner, neice or nephew.  Child prob born of Hulda and Wesley Biner. The 1920 data shows
a John Sellers living with son in law, Howard Helmes, in Lima. John shown as 50 which tracks.
 

Child of JOHN SELLERS and SARAH ANNETA is:
 i. GLADYS8 SELLERS, b. Abt. 1893, Cridersville, Auglaize Cnty , OH.

Notes for LEWIS SELLERS:
Witta with a ? is shown in notes as wife. No children shown. Flora shown in 1900 census data for Auglaize Cnty. Only Herman shown as child with Henel Deidrick as stepdaughter. A servant, Bertha Sikert born in July 1882 is also listed. Odd that folks so young would have a servant....The 1910 Soundex info for Allen Cnty shows Lewis and Flora at age 35, Helen at 16 , and Herman 9. The data for
1920 show a Lewis Sellers, 44, and a Bertha,27, born in Illinois and living in Lima. His age is about right
but what happened to wife and kids ??

The 1920 census shows Clinton in Allen Co at age 37 with wife Hannah M ,age 35.  A child Florence C,age 10, is also shown. This could be 2d marriage or name error.
 

Child of CLINTON SELLERS and SUSAN MOHLER is:
 i. FLORENCE9 SELLERS, b. Abt. 1910.

36.  CALVIN M.8 SELLERS (DANIEL7, JOSEPH6, JOHN LEONARD5, PHILIP HENRY4, JOHN LEONARD3, PHILIP HENRY2, HANS ADAM1 SOLLER) was born Abt. 1886.  He married HAZEL LOCKE.

Notes for CALVIN M. SELLERS:
Calvin's birthdate does not seem to track. Census data leads one to believe he was born after mom's death. Not likely.
 

Child of CALVIN SELLERS and HAZEL LOCKE is:
 i. CLARENCE9 SELLERS.

37.  ALTA8 SELLERS (DAVID7, JOSEPH6, JOHN LEONARD5, PHILIP HENRY4, JOHN LEONARD3, PHILIP HENRY2, HANS ADAM1 SOLLER) was born Abt. 1879.  She married JIM MARSHALL.

Notes for ALTA SELLERS:
This lady probably was really Sarah shown in 1880 census.
 

Children of ALTA SELLERS and JIM MARSHALL are:
 i. DOLLY9 MARSHALL.
 ii. ETHEL MARSHALL.

38.  ALICE8 SELLERS (DAVID7, JOSEPH6, JOHN LEONARD5, PHILIP HENRY4, JOHN LEONARD3, PHILIP HENRY2, HANS ADAM1 SOLLER) was born March 1880.  She married DARRIEL HOWELL.

Children of ALICE SELLERS and DARRIEL HOWELL are:
 i. VIRGIL9 HOWELL.
 ii. WOVALINE HOWELL.

Notes for WOVALINE HOWELL:
This name and sex are strickly guess work.  Woxxline could be nearly anything. It might even be a last
name rather than another child.
 

39.  FRANK W.8 SELLERS (DAVID7, JOSEPH6, JOHN LEONARD5, PHILIP HENRY4, JOHN LEONARD3, PHILIP HENRY2, HANS ADAM1 SOLLER) was born December 1882 in Allen Cnty OH.  He married BERTHA STILES.

Notes for FRANK W. SELLERS:
1900 soundex census data shows Frank as Franklin W. The 1910 data shows Frank 27, Bertha, 24, and Glenn 4. The 1920 data shows Frank W. ,Bertha, Glen C 13, and Isabella 3.
 

Children of FRANK SELLERS and BERTHA STILES are:
 i. GLENN9 SELLERS, b. Abt. 1906, Allen Cnty OH.
 ii. ISABEL SELLERS, b. Abt. 1917, Allen Cnty OH.

40.  ETHEL MAY8 SELLERS (DAVID7, JOSEPH6, JOHN LEONARD5, PHILIP HENRY4, JOHN LEONARD3, PHILIP HENRY2, HANS ADAM1 SOLLER) was born September 20, 1887 in Perry Twp, Allen Cnty, OH.  She married RENO MERLE BOWDLE November 25, 1905.

Notes for ETHEL MAY SELLERS:
There may be two children of this union. Chester is prob correct but not perfectly clear. Another name
Settlesmere or Sethlexxxxx is shown in front of "Chester".
 

Notes for RENO MERLE BOWDLE:
A History of Auglaize Cnty shows family but list children as Cecile and Robert Merle. This story was written after 1958...
 

Children of ETHEL SELLERS and RENO BOWDLE are:
 i. ROBERT MERLE9 BOWDLE.
 ii. CECILE MARIE BOWDLE, b. July 05, 1911, Auglaize Cnty  OH; m. GERALD RICHARD BENNETT.

41.  VICTOR N.8 SELLERS (WILLIAM7, JOSEPH6, JOHN LEONARD5, PHILIP HENRY4, JOHN LEONARD3, PHILIP HENRY2, HANS ADAM1 SOLLER) was born February 1893 in Allen Cnty OH.  He married (1) SARAH DRAKE.  He married (2) LILLIAN E. HAMILTON.

Notes for VICTOR N. SELLERS:
Address, apparently for Victor was RR # 1, Box 180 ? , Lakeview, Ohio. Victor was married twice. First lady was Sarah Drake and second was Lillian E. Hamilton.

Victor's children Noram and Mara Ellen may have delivered by either lady, but form of notes leads one
to believe Norman was result of first marriage and Mara Ellen by the second.

Mara Ellen is shown in one note as one word and two words. In the ink written note , form might lead one
to believe both children came from second union.
 

Children of VICTOR SELLERS and SARAH DRAKE are:
 i. MARA ELLEN9 SELLERS, m. (1) HORANCE BLACKWELL; m. (2) HOWARD DENNIS.

Notes for MARA ELLEN SELLERS:
Once again, Maraellen was married twice. Although it is not wildly clear, she and Mr Blackwell had three daughers listed, Sharon,Tiffiny, and Dawn.
 

Second marraige to Howard Dennis. Either he was from Ninneapolis MN or they lived there. It appears
that one male was born of this union, Richard Olsen. It is possible that this name is two sons....
Another address shown was 4353 S. Cedar Ave. I have no idea what city this correlates with.
 

 ii. NOMAN SELLERS, b. Abt. 1919; m. WINNIE LOGUE.

Notes for NOMAN SELLERS:
Apparently Norman lived for many years very near Loren and Dorothy Sellers. Address shown is 6275 Dewey Ave, Lima, Ohio. This is within a few blocks of 1414 Hill St and 320 S Collins Ave, the last two homes of my parents. Roger 3-29-98. A re-reading of notes indicated Homer was prob married to Mary and Andy to a Jean.
 

42.  OREL DAVID8 SELLERS (JOSEPH MCCLELLAN7, SAMUEL6, JOHN LEONARD5, PHILIP HENRY4, JOHN LEONARD3, PHILIP HENRY2, HANS ADAM1 SOLLER) was born October 18, 1889 in Oh, and died June 26, 1939 in Allen  or Auglaize Cnty OH.  He married ROSA LEONE.

Notes for OREL DAVID SELLERS:
Orel David Sellers shown buried in Jackson Twp, Allen Cnty, Lafayette, Ohio. This is assumed to be
Oral shown in notes. The 1920 census data shows Orvill Sellers, 30, Rosa 26, and the three children
listed. At that point, they were in Auglaize Cnty.
 

Children of OREL SELLERS and ROSA LEONE are:
 i. DOROTHY9 SELLERS, b. Abt. 1914.
 ii. CARL SELLERS, b. Abt. 1915.
 iii. HELEN SELLERS, b. Abt. 1917.

43.  EVERETT L.8 SELLERS (JOSEPH MCCLELLAN7, SAMUEL6, JOHN LEONARD5, PHILIP HENRY4, JOHN LEONARD3, PHILIP HENRY2, HANS ADAM1 SOLLER) was born Abt. 1902, and died Abt. 1954 in Allen Cnty OH.  He married DORIS V.

Notes for EVERETT L. SELLERS:
Data here from St Mathew's Cemetery,Allen Cnty ,OH
 

Child of EVERETT SELLERS and DORIS is:
 i. ROGER GENE9 SELLERS, b. January 13, 1923; d. August 10, 1943.

Notes for ROGER GENE SELLERS:
St Mathew's data from Mark Gierhart gives dates and list US Navy WW II.
 
 

44.  HOWARD8 SELLERS (JAMES BYRON7, WILLIAM B6, JOHN LEONARD5, PHILIP HENRY4, JOHN LEONARD3, PHILIP HENRY2, HANS ADAM1 SOLLER) was born March 13, 1905 in RT 6 Wapakoneta OH, and died in FL.  He married HELEN.

Notes for HOWARD SELLERS:
Howard and Helen were both living in FL in spring of 91. By fall of 94 when my mother Dorothy passed away, they were both gone and buried within 100 yards of my parents, grandparents, to the south in a newer area. Roger 3-29-98.

David went thru a variety of occupations. He was in FL and a barber the last I knew. He was an only child raised in Dayton,Kettering, Ohio. He was several years younger than I, probably born about 1940. He may have fathered children to keep Sellers name going. No contact in memory. Roger 3-29-98.
 

Notes for HELEN:
Date of birth and death obtained via SSAN. It appears Helen's SSAN was 276-36-5613. Similiar check for
Howard did not come out as well. A Howard is shown with about proper birth day, but SSAN issued in IN.
 

Child of HOWARD SELLERS and HELEN is:
 i. DAVID9 SELLERS.

45.  LOREN FLOYD8 SELLERS (JAMES BYRON7, WILLIAM B6, JOHN LEONARD5, PHILIP HENRY4, JOHN LEONARD3, PHILIP HENRY2, HANS ADAM1 SOLLER) was born October 03, 1909 in RT 6 Wapaloneta OH, and died April 08, 1988 in Lima OH.  He married DOROTHY EILENE CRAWFORD March 16, 1935 in St Luke's Lutheran  Lima OH, daughter of CHARLES CRAWFORD and BEULAH REED.

My gg grandfather J. Leonard Sellers,moved to Allen Cnty Ohio circa 1837
from Franklin Cnty PA.
He was born in Bucks Cnty PA in 1782, son of Philip Henry, and grandson of
J
Leonard who died in
Bucks Cnty in 1805. Leonard died in 1860 and is buried in St Paul's
Lutheran
Cemetery, just south of Lima, Ohio. In just a few months, I have made good
progress filling in blanks prior to
1900. My thanks to you who have helped.

My quest now is to sort out Sellers in the Allen/Auglaize Cnty area in the
1800-1900 time frame.
A John Sellers is buried in the same cemetery and died 21May 1882 at the
age
of 71yr,4m,17d. His
wife Susan lies with him. She passed on 27Sep1892 at 73yr,1m,0d. Couple
show
in 1850 census data
in German Twp, Allen Cnty Ohio with children Samuel,Catherine,Elizabeth,
Frances, and Susan.
A Viola shows by 1880 census when they were in Perry Twp,Allen Cnty. A John
Sellers signed for land in Lima OHIO in fall of 1840--so did a Jacob
Sellers. This is prob the same John.

Records show John and Susan born in Ohio. This appears to preclude them
traveling to Ohio with my gg grandfather. Does anyone have data showing
origin of this couple or the Jacob who was there in 1840 ?
Thanks  Roger

Data here from various on-line sources. Leonard Sellers came to Phil  in =
1728 with folks and
settled in Bucks Cnty PA.  He had several children. Philip Henry, a son, =
had a George born abt
 1781. THis George married a Magdalena Shirk circa 1807 and had moved to =
Franklin Cnty with
parents before 1800.

 Leonard also had a son George born later, abt 1785. He married a =
Magdalena Schneider in
Bucks in 1809 and later moved to Franklin Cnty  PA, Greencastle.  Philip =
Henry was my ggg
grandfather. It was his son Leonard that moved to Ohio in 1836-37. This =
is a "German" line.
The name George is pretty common to "other lines" also. Too bad ,from =
our viewpoint, that they
didn't issue SSAN two or three hundred years earlier. It seems I have =
been paying it nearly that
 long.
Hi Maryann,
Above is very brief extract of "my Leonard Sellers". Elizabeth was his =
wife and there is
confusion concerning her maiden name. Notes from my father, circa =
1950-75, show it Wengerd
but notes by him from a relative's papers show it as Weingert. I had =
mail from a fellow in
Franklin Cnty PA who had little or no info on Elizabeth Wingert born =
about 1816. Therefore I
am very interested in Wenger data if..we are talking about same folks. =
To basics, Leonard was
born in Bucks Cnty PA in 1782 and died in Allen Cnty OH on 3Sep1860 at =
age of 77yr,9m,15d.
Elizabeth born ? died in Allen Cnty OH on 8June1885 at 81yr,9m,15d. This =
is data from stones
in St Paul's Cemetary south of Lima. I have physically been there but it =
was back in 1988 when
my father left us. I was born and raised in Lima.

I just noted some calculations I made. Using 30 day months Elizabeth was

Great...!! Yes I have FTW with all known data, and some guess work =
(labeled as such).
Early,months ago extract is on Sellers-L@rootsweb.com but I would be =
happy to send your
detail if I can figure out out to do it. I can get neat reports but =
saving and sending them are
tricky. I have been computing since 82 but relative novice to family =
history--I have
had Dad's notes for over ten years. I can track Leonard's family from =
Germany to Ohio down to
my grandkid's,5. I have not found a soul..until now..who was following =
Leonard or part of
family. I know some of dad's cousins were involved from his notes. My =
brother still lives near
Lima within a mile or so of my grandfather's farm (James B Sellers). He =
passed on right after I
started college in the dark ages of 1954. Much of the Franklin Cnty PA =
info I have came from a
Joanne Baker who has been working Sellers family detail there for a =
couple of years. P. Henry
was missing link from Dad's day until Apr 98 when she gave me info on =
ggg grandfather P

Let me know what you would like.

You may use info I fowarded as you please. The forwarded msg from Ms =

some info. The son of John Sellers (Leonard's brother) , Jacob, was not =
the fellow signing for
land in Allen Cnty OH in 1840 since I now know he died in 1810. Joanna =

info. I didn't know she was a teacher. My degree was in Ed, Soc Science =

early 80's and have

New prt head assembly cost about that. I will put 400e in wife's room =

any use. I also lived it up a Sam's Club in El Paso. They cut price on =
titanium golf irons with

Yes I got your file fine. I added to my file quite a bit but need to =
check for logical stop pt. For

other name. I also assume
the Abraham and Philip mentioned are grandsons of J Leonard, ie sons of =

Subject: Re: Leonard Sellers

Roger, I finally read your file and have some corrections to make.  I =
guess that just comes
naturally to a teacher.  Philip Henry(1752-1834), son of John Leonard =
and Anna and Anna
Maria, (1758-after1810), dau of John Leonard and Anna, not Catherine.  =
No birthdate for John.  I
am assuming, (always a dangerous thing), that he was born some time in =
between.  John's son,
Jacob, died in 1810 in Franklin Co. wife, Barbara, no children named.  =
He was only abt 25. John
Leonard, (1727-1805) did not leave a will.  His estate was not settled =
until death of wife,
Barbara.  I have been unable to search the records in Bucks but did find =
bond where Henry was
named as oldest son but scratched thru in favor of Abraham and Philip =
probably because he lived
so far away. Further work could be done in the records of Bucks.  Maybe =
I'll make the trip
sometime.  The info naming Mary Dungan and Sarah Smith, wife of John, =
and Maria Kinsey,
widow (probably of Jacob) of Bedford Co. was in the Misc. books. There =
may be more  there
and in the account books.  The Society did the limited research for me =
after I found the pages in
an index. I do have more information on children of George Sellers =
(1784-1842) and his
children.  I will sort thru and pass it on if you are interested.  I =
will let you know about any other
corrections I find. Thanks, Joanna.

If I could get my brother on the ball, maybe he could have dug up this =
much info in a month or
two, on the ground in Allen/Auglaize Cnty. I have done all kinds of =
searchs for those counties,
and have Sellers registered on there sites. It yielded some cemetary =
data but little else. The DOS
file is "gang busters !!". Amongst other things, it gives me resting =
place of my gg grand folks,I
knew it was somewhere in Auglaize Cnty. Auglaize was created in 1841, I =
think, out of mostly
Allen Cnty. James Byron Sellers farm was on County Line Rd about 8 miles =
south of Lima.
County line is somewhere just north of farm--it hasn't been in family =
for 30 yrs or so. My brother
lives just about a mile north on the same road. I am not sure which =
county he is in. The Lutheran
Cem north of Cridersville (towards Lima,and in Shawnee Twnship) is St =
Mathew's Lutheran
and holds my grandparents,parents,uncle and wife, and bunch of other =
Sellers. Leonard and
Elizbeth lie in St Paul's Lutheran, closer to Lima on south side. At a =
glance, it looks like my
dad's notes were pretty good but your data gives more info on children =
than I had.  Joanna just
gave me info on about 7 ggg half grand uncles and aunts, children of =
Leonard's grandfather by
another lady that I was completly unaware of. She also shot down my =
theories of John and Jacob
Sellers who signed for land in Lima in 1840 on the same day as Leonard. =
Your data my help
there. I assume that you copied info from census data for years =
indicated. Was it from FTM CD,
hard copy from Ohio counties, ??. My novice status in family history =
field shows. Thanks to the
WWW and kind folks like yourself, I have made more progress in a few =
months than my dad, or
others,made in many,many, years.
Sincere thanks, Roger
 

Both John's are in the same cemetery as Leonard and Elizabeth but census =
data indicates
John and family born in Ohio. Since he was born circa 1811 and Leonard =
apparently did not get
to OH until early 1837, I don't think that is relationship. I had =
guessed his folks and was wrong.
Joanna shot down my theories for both John and Jacob Sellers-they signed =
for land in Lima on
the same day as Leonard. I think we will find that there is a =
relationship but it may well lie with
the children of Leonard's grandfather,with his last wife. Some of them =
are contemporaries of
Leonard. I also noted you eliminated CAPS in some cases for names. I am =
doing that in
