from MICHAEL AMBER
MikeAmber [mikeamber@lvcm.com]

To add a bit more to the Michael Sellars listed on the 1810 Rockingham
County, Virginia, Census ....

Michael Sellers also appears on the 1787 Rockingham County "Personal
Property Tax Lists".  He shows as owning 4 horses and 15 head of cattle.  A
SECOND Michael Sellers is also listed.  It shows that the first Michael
Sellers listed is responsible for paying the tax for the 2nd one.  This
means that the 2nd Michael Sellers is evidently the son and is Michael
Sellers, Jr.
On this tax list, the county commissioner was required to note the day he
visited each taxpayer and the "Militia District" in which each taxpayer
lived.  These two Michael Sellers' were visited by the tax commissioner on
March 12, 1787 and were located in Militia Company #9.

Additionally, in John W. Wayland's "Virginia Valley Records", under 'Militia
Vouchers' in 1788, the following listing appears:
under "Captain Richard Ragan's Company, No.13, Michael Sellers, 1 tithable,
son Jacob, 4 horses".

The 4 horses listed as part of Capt. Richard Ragan's Company for the Militia
Vouchers in 1788 matches what was counted by the county tax commissioner for
the 1787 Tax List for Rockingham County.  The Michael Sellers on the Tax
List and the Michael Sellers listed in Wayland's is the same person.

So, this Michael Sellers was most definitely in Rockingham County Virginia
as early as 1787, he had a namesake in Michael Sellers, Jr., and another
son, Jacob.

I still haven't a clue as to which family he fits into.  The Michael Sellers
in Rockingham County is most definitely German.   I think maybe one of the
keys to figuring how who he was and how he fits is to uncover who this
"Captain Richard Ragan" was, did he serve in the War, and, if so, did his
Company serve in the War and WHERE?

FROM MICHAEL
michael sellers [mikeamber@cox.net]

Rockingham county, Virginia, Tax Lists: June 19, 1789: MAY NOT  be divided correctly, RESEND, msh

District 10 Michael Sellers: 1 white male over 16 in household, 4 horses

May 21, 1791: Richard Ragan's company Michael Sellers: 4 horses

Jacob Sellers: No marks James Sellers: No marks March 14, 1792:

Richard Ragan's company Michael Sellers: 4 horses

Jacob Sellers: No marks

James Sellers: No marks

August 6, 1793:

Josiah Harrison's company (District 8) James Sellers: 1 horse

Michael Sellers: 3 horses Jacob Sellers: No marks

On the 1791, 1792, & 1793 Tax Lists Michael, Jacob, and James are listed in line and together. The "No marks" besides Jacob's and James' name in 1791 and 1792 appears to show that they were old enough to be listed but did not have taxable property. I think it can be assumed here that Michael was their father. Its also interesting to note that Michael Sellers was listed with 4 horses in 1789, 1791, & 1792 while in 1793 he was listed with 3 horses with the 4th apparently being owned by James. I also have a reference that a "Michael Sellers" sold land to a "James Sellers" in 1808 in Rockingham county, Virginia. This was about 4 years prior to Michael's death circa 1812 in R'ham county. His death may have been one of the reasons that James headed around that time for Harrison county, IN.

I have a book in my possession, "Cradled By the Massanutten: The
Zellers-Sellers Family" by Mary Marie Koontz Arrington published in
1986.  The author lists Heinrich Zellers and family of Weinheim, Baden,
Germany taking a barge down the Rhine in 1738 on his way to
Philadelphia.  The family settled in Augusta Co. VA (now Rockingham
Co.).  Later records show the family using the Sellers name.

SELLERS LETTERS Vol. 5  - Ref: Old Tenth Legion Marriages - Marriages in
Rocingham Co., VA 1778-1816, as taken from marriage bonds).

Rockingham County was created from August Co., VA in 1778.  At one time
Augusta County encompassed lands north and west to the Ohio River (and
west of the Allegheny Mts.?)

This book has mrgs in alphabetical order by surname.  We did not see the
book (the info was sent to SELLERS LETTERS) therefore cannot explain the
numbers at left of the names.  They *may* be the last 2 digits of the
year of the bond?  marriage?  No dates are otherwise shown with the
entries.

My note:  If these numbers are for the year, it is an excellent example
as to why it is so very important to write out the years in full - FOUR
digits - regardless of the Y2K problem facing us now.

Marie--As I got out my old boxes to find the Benjamin Franklin Sellers of
Bond Co., IL pension papers, I found I had a copy of the Sellers Family
History 1771-1975, put together by Mrs. Whitfield T. Sellers.  Have you had
access to it?  These are Sellers of Rockingham and Augusta Counties, VA,
and most particularly the family of Jerome H.B. Sellers., son of John Sellers,
who deeded it to his son Jerome H.B. in 1858.  Jerome H.B. and wife
Margaret Belle Sellers had sons who went west and settled in Iowa and South Dakota.
Best regards,
Frank

FRANK - don't think I have even heard of this history - Is it for sale? can
it be copied? advise -
I believe I know which Jerome H.B.SELLERS 1825-colorful life? But, nothing
on his family  - Yes, someone sent 14 kids names maybe by second wife -
Nothing on where they went/married. So, we could use the info.
Anxious to hear on BFS - Best Wishes for the Holidays - marie, iowa



Mary D. Taffet [mdtaffet@mailbox.syr.edu]

I'm wondering if one or both of you can help me identify some
individuals by the surname SELLERS that I cannot positively identify at
this time.

The persons I am talking about were mentioned in old letters written by
members of my family.  Most of these letters were written by people
living in the Shenandoah valley of Virginia, typically Rockingham County
and nearby areas.

The following are links to the letters that mention Sellers:

1)
<http://homepages.rootsweb.com/~mdtaffet/gibbons_letter_1862_03_25.htm>
This one mentions a Dr. Sellers.

2)
<http://homepages.rootsweb.com/~mdtaffet/gibbons_letter_1862_09_27.htm>
This one mentions Doctor Sellers and Miss Betsy Sellers.



MikeAmber [mikeamber@lvcm.com]

I'm pretty sure I can help you out with at least some of this.  In the one
letter mentioning Dr. Sellers and Betsy Sellers, she also mentions a "Lizzie
Maggart".  Lizzie Maggart was Elizabeth Magdalene Maggard, daughter of Anna
Persilla SELLERS and Reuben C. Maggard.  Anna Persilla SELLERS was the
daughter of Henry and Molly (Hedrick) Seller, grand daughter of Adam and
Barbara (Teeter) Sellers and Great Granddaughter of Heinrich and Anna Maria
Zeller.  Lizzie (Sellers) Maggart was born September 4, 1842 and died March
26, 1917.

The "Dr. Sellers" was likely Dr. Theodore Napoleon Sellers, son of John
Conrad and Catherine (Brown) SELLERS.  He was born May 12, 1830 and died
January 26, 1918.

As for "Betsy Sellers", I'll have to check what I have as there are so many
Elizabeth's in the family, I don't know offhand which one she might have
been.

Hope that helps.

Michael Sellers



Thanks!

That was very helpful.  I will add the identification of Lizzie
Maggart/Maggard just as soon as I can, and also the probable
identification of Dr. Sellers.

-- Mary Taffet
Mary D. Taffet [mdtaffet@mailbox.syr.edu]



Glad I could help.
Dr. T.N. Sellers is in my direct line of Sellers and was pretty well known in the family.  The old letter mentioned was in a group of correspondance for families including the Yanceys.  The Sellers and Yanceys in the McGaheysville area during that timeframe had close ties.  The mention of a "Dr. Sellers", especially with the mention of Lizzie Maggart, leaves little doubt in my mind that it was Dr. Theodore Napoleon Sellers.
