Does anyone have any info on the Sellars family in Delaware?
Nicholas Sellars fought in the Revolutionary War. He and his 3 sons can
be found in the 1790 Delaware census: Nicholas, John (my ancestor, Jacob,
and George. Nicholas made a will and mentioned his wife Susannah and his
3 sons. He died about 1797. John m. Elizabeth Rankin and they lived and
died in Wilmington, where they raised their children:
Louisa, Harriet Caroline (my ancestress), Matilda, Ann, William.
I would love to connect with anyone having any information on this family.

children, Hannah and Sarah, being young
WHO is this, msh?
JOSEPH SELLERS/SELLARS= paid for damages done by British Army in New
Castle Hundred in 1777
NICHOLAS SELLERS, paid by State for his attendance on schooner VIGILANT
Several of the PA SELLERS lost their Quakers , by marrying out also -
Don't believe I saw anything on our Phil,Pa page which should show a link
to PASCHALL SELLERS and his families and LINK may Not show on the Chester
and Delware Co, PA pages?
COULD this be another SELLERS family came over in 1740 - related to ones
that had already came?
OVERSEAS Church Records? that's all I can think of - marie, iowa
We have corresponded previously. I am the same Susan with the
mail address. Except I don't use that one
My Sellars line is: Nicholas and Elizabeth Sellars of Wilmington, New
Castle, Delaware. He fought in the Rev. War.
Their children: John (my line), Jacob and George. All 4 are listed in
the 1790 census. John had a daughter named Harriet Caroline Sellars and
she married Thomas Fisher Pim, a Quaker. They moved to PA, and then to
Ohio, Louisiana and finally MO, where both of them died. Their son
Thomas Fisher Pim, went to Colorado to explore Pike's Peak in the 1850s.
Did you ever get more info on immigrant NICKLAUS ZOLLER, 30YRS OLD that came Dec 3, 1740 on ship SAMUEL, (memory). He is listed on the 1740 PHILADELPHIA CO, PA , now I used to think this was a tax list (cd136) But, I wonder if it could be a naturalization or maybe an immigrant chart?
YES, he came on ship SAMUEL, same ship name as HANS JERG ZOLLER came in 1733.
But, I don't know if we know who he is?
Does ANYONE have info on him.
NOW, regarding the POOLE connection = a Very fast look= married 1792
PA to JOHN SELLERS
We have Some Phil, Pa records = hardest, is getting the correct families
together. We have some members that have worked on these families.
But, NoOne has sent me a chart on the WM SELLERS of hall & sellers, possible
son of SAMUEL died 1754 Chester Co,PA
BUT, You have a FARRIS, ETC connection? When/Where? Just a small
names/dates/places , so I can see them, etc.
Thanks again, marie, iowa
