The witness was Dover,Ky to Levanna,Oh Ohio River ferryman Josephus
Waters.
The land in question must have been on the,til 1818,Clermont-Adams Co
line.
And Brown Co afterwards. The land was likely east,or ne of where US RTS
68 and 62
seperate at Red Oak,or north of Rilpey,and sw of decatur,and s of
Russelville. Roughly.
Cornelius Washburn lived nearby.
That neighborhood had a split in the Presbyterian church in 1801-01,with
New Lights founded,
and a split in them in 1806,with mid western Shakers founded,and
1811,100+ families of
 new Shakers from there to the new,but ill fated Shaker village of
Buseron,n Vincinnes,In.
As new Shakers,though now celebiate,these 100+ gfamilies had children.
Some returned to
Brown Co.
Wabash River malaria,and War of 1812 Indians helped defeat 2-4 attemts to
found Buseron
Shaker village. 



Write in haste;repent at leisure.  I meant to say that it is likely that
Josephine(?)=Josephus Waters.  Again, I recall that Hermon stated that
Josephus ran the ferry.  From memory, he did NOT marry one of the Sellers
girls (but don't hold me to that).  Still, I think WATERS are related to
Leonard and Flora Sellers of Bracken Co.  One of their daughters,
Elizabeth,
did marry a Waters.  Don't think it was Josephus.  Maybe I have listed this
already, but I need to go back to sources.  Working from faulty memory, it
seems that only daughters survived Leonard and Flora, although I recall
some
association with a George Sellers.  Don't believe the precise relationship
can be proven.

Can't say if John Michael Sellers and Leonard Sellers of Bracken were
related or not.  Nothing obvious, except geography, comes to mind.  Leonard
was married to a Flora, and I do have a Flora Nettie Kinney in my family,
for what it may be worth.  She was daughter of Sarah E. McDaniel and
William
Kinney, granddaughter of James William McDaniel and Sarah King, and
greatgranddaughter of John McDaniel and Polly Sellers.

>From his will,Leonard Sellers had a dau ,SALLY WATERS,and Waters
grandchildren.
Josephus WATERS took Jeremiah Washburn's place as FERRY MAN from
DOVER,very
nw MASON CO,Ky [Lees CREEK STATION] acoss the Ohio to LEVANNA,w
RIPLEY,Brown
Co,Oh. Waters was known on both sides of the river-having a road from his
ferry to the then county seat at Williamsburg,Clermont Co, named for him
1803 era.
Mahala SELLERS,1839 married JAMES KIRKPATRICK a long mile up the river
hill
at the ferry-Psgah ridge.
A ferryman needed to own landings in both KY,and Oh. Perhaps a
SELLERS-Michael?] lived on the Ohio bank?

HERMON, MARIE, and ALL,
     There is very little on WATERS in Bracken in addition to the
marriage of William Waters to
Sally Sellers, Leonard's daughter.  There are the following,
however:

MB-September 12, 1807
Josephus Waters and Lucy Botts/Boots
Josephus Waters and Robert Davis, secs.
m-J. Morris
Says marriage date was November 12, 1807

Lucy must have been a widow.
In 1810 Lucy Waters, late Lucy Botts, gave consent for her son,
Joseph Botts, to marry Sabra
Wilks.

In retrospect, then, it would seem likely that Josephus Waters is one
generation older that William
Waters.  Whether they are father and son, I have no idea.

ML-July 27, 1857
Ira Waters and Sarah Ann Shawhan
Ira, aged 17 born Brown Co OH
Sarah, aged 15, born Bracken Co (books says OH--a typo)
m-Jas. W. Kendall; m-at W. Maxwell's
John D. Cline & Jas. Armicost, wit to marriage
Says Consent same day as License but doesn't give any info
Marriage Return was December 26, 1857

>From the 1850 census, Sarah appears to be the daughter of
Joseph, aged 52 and Sarah Shawhon, aged 47, both born KY.  I've
considered how to pronounce
the name, since one of Michael's daughters married a Shane, but his
daughters are supposed to be
Polly Shane and Sarah McDonald, not the other way around.

You might want to look at the following Waters website:
www.foxinternet.net/web2/steve2os/sld005.htm
I now realize that it lists a different Josephus Waters, but maybe
you can get something from it.
The one it lists is Josephus b. 1742; d. Apr 1837 KY; married 3
times: Mary Edwards 1782; Mary
Lancaster Lansdale 1788; Mary Keech--at least that is what it says.
This is a confusing site and gives no geographical clues to where in
KY.

HERMON, MARIE and ALL,
     I almost missed these, but I thought Hermon might be interested
in Mahala because of his
Mahala Sellers.  Don't forget that Kesiah Green (2nd wife, parents
unk) married Philip Sellers.

MB-January 20, 1802; Consent same date
M-June 12, 1802 (extractor notes date does not match)
Mahala Waters and Sovereign Green
William U. Green & Sovereign Green, secs.
J.B. Thomas, attest to MB
Consent-Mahala Waters
Benjamin Whorton, Daniel Hathaway, "Souvran Green," witness Consent
m-Isaac Day

     Apparently Mahala died early on, because Sovereign married again
in 1814 to Margaret
Bailey.  Sovereign must have been a mature man at the time of his
marriages, because Soverign
Green, Jr. married also in 1814 to Patty Smith.  Have to consider
that Mahala may have been a
widow originally.

MB-February 5, 1810
M-February 8, 1810
Marriage Return-June 25, 1810
Margaret/Peggy Waters and Morris Baker
Samuel D. Davidson & Morris Baker, secs.
m-John King

     Do not believe that there are any more WATERS marriages.  There
are a couple of  GREEN
marriages.
SHERRY



From HERMON
                     hermfagley@juno.com

          TSomeplace 1-4 years ago.likely on the SELLERS list, my often faulty
memory  is that somebody posted Josephus Waters was m to a SELLERS. Since
his ferry was at the foot of the hill that Mahala Sellers later,1839,m
James Kirkpatrick,I've been watching for him. And 1-4 years ago,I figured
out,of the SELLERS in BRACKEN,Leonard seemed the one in the very ne
corner. Michael seemed the SELLERS in the area of s Brown near the ferry.
JOHN SELLERS, and Peter,seemed 10-15 miles nne in Brown.
1ST NAMESAKE FOR MAHALA. .And a Waters, by birth,or by marriage,and d
roughly the time of my Mahala 's birth.
