This website has a list of "free negroes and mulattos" in Hardy Co., VA from 1786 through 1819. It lists Abraham Sellers and numerous other Sellers. May provide some clues. I believe the Civil War pensions of Abraham's sons mentions they were from Hardy Co.

http://www.freeafricanamericans.com/Hardy.htm

The earliest two heads of household on this list (1786) were Frederick and Susannah Sellers. Susannah lived on Frederick's land. By 1809 Abraham was shown as living with Susannah. Not sure of all of the connections. There are many Sellers on the various lists. By 1819 Abraham is listed with Fred and Isaac Sellers.

October 1705-CHAP. IV. An act declaring who shall not bear office in this country.

[The text of this act suggests that a free man of color did hold an office sometime before October of 1705. The statute contains the first definition of a mulatto in Virginia's laws.]

''Be it enacted and declared, and it is hereby enacted and declared, That the child of an Indian and the child, grandchild, or great grandchild, of a negro shall be deemed, accounted, held and taken to be a mulatto.''

Source: Hening, ed., The Statutes at Large, vol. 3, pp. 250-251, 252.

I think that *Henings Statutes at Large* predates Wikipedia. Note the Virtual Jamestown site says this 1705 law was the FIRST DEFINITION OF A MULATTO IN VIRGINIA LAWS and it states THE CHILD OF AN INDIAN shall be deemed, accounted, held and taken to be a MULATTO.

Within a few weeks after the Braddock defeat, two companies of rangers were authorized to serve in Frederick and Hampshire Counties. William Cocks and John Ashby were appointed to command the 1st and 2nd Companies of Rangers, respectively. Both men were given captain's commissions.
By September 1755 both companies, with approximately 30 men each, were patrolling the area around Patterson Creek.

With the approach of cold weather, the new commander of the Virginia Regiment, George
Washington, ordered Lt. John Bacon of the Maryland forces to leave Fort Cumberland to oversee construction of two forts on Patterson Creek to house the ranger companies. By December, both forts were completed and garrisoned by the rangers. The 2nd company, commanded by Captain
Ashby, was stationed at the fort built " . . . at the Plantation of Charles Sellars, or the late
McCrackins . . . " 1   now located in Fort Ashby, Mineral County, West Virginia. From the moment of its occupation until its demise, the fort took the name of its first commander; it was referred to as Ashby's Fort. 


from FRANK SELLERS
Sellersgen@aol.com

may 2006

My recent days of research in Moorefield and Romney, WV discovered two
outstanding items that are new to me though others may have known.

1. In 1790, Frederick Selle(a)rs listed himself and two nephews as the
responsible parties for a lease of 95 acres in Hardy Co., WV
, a lease we have all often found cited in legal records of the period.

In the deed of lease dated Dec. 4, 1790, Frederick Sellars "of the county of
Hardy" states that he and Henry Sellars and Elias Sellers (spelling from the
deed), the latter "sons to his brother"
will be the parties to have and to
hold the property. The brother was unnamed.

(Tax lists, sometimes used as a census in this time period, show Henry and
Frederick in Hardy County, but I don't remember Elias being listed in the
county.)


The lease of the land was from Denny Fairfax, the nephew and heir of the
deceased Lord Fairfax, of land received in a grant from the King of England. The
younger Fairfax discovered the lands already occupied in many cases, and
sometimes the Commonwealth of Virginia had granted the same land to someone
else. In order to avoid great legal difficulties, he decided to lease such lands
to their occupants. In this way, Frederick Sellers leased 95 acres on the
West Side of the South Branch of the Potomac
in the survey made by George Murray of Fairfax's South Branch Manor.

See Deed Book 2, Hardy County, WV, page 200.


2. Records of the North Mill Creek Lutheran and Reformed Church, copied by
the WPA in the 1930s and retyped in the 1960s, show Henry and Magdalene Zeller
as members. Copies of these records are at the Hardy County Public Library
in Moorefield. The log church was in a nearby area of neighboring Grant
County, WV
, at the junction of North Mill Creek and South Mill Creek, near
Petersburg. The papers were fragments when found in the 1930s, but appear to show
births, deaths, christenings, and membership. Zeller names are Catherine,
Elizabeth, George, Henry, Jonas, Magdalena, Margaret, and Mary.


Our Hardy County records on Sellers-Zellers show many more connections from
these names.

[WVHARDY] Brethren or Dunkard churches

In the period of 1760-1800, early churches formed in Hardy and neighboring
counties. Hardy County resident Henry Sellers moved to Ohio about 1815,
and married into a strong Dunkard family named Ohmart in Clark County, Ohio
in 1822. His marriage would have been an unusual match for a non-Dunkard.

Was there a Dunkard (now called Brethren) Church, or congregation which may
have met in private homes, in Hardy County during 1760 to 1810?

From: FRANK

During a visit to the Virginia State Library last week, I copied out the
following entry from Volume C, Hardy County, VA (now WV) Record of Surveys:

"Survey Number 643
1st of June 1824
By virtue of part of a land office Treasury warrant for 400 Acres No. 4960
issued to James Moseley the 2nd of November 1812, entered the 26th of May
1824, I have surveyed for Thomas Sollars (assignee) of Reuben Davis who was
(assignee) of James Moseley, a tract of land in Hardy County on the waters
of New Creek...containing 50 acres."
Andrew Aronhalt

The surveyor, Andrew Aronhalt, entered the complicated landmarks as the
bounds of the property where I have put the periods.

Later Hardy County, VA land records show that Thomas Sollars and Jane, his
wife, sold 50 Acres on "Tibs Run" on May 8, 1826 for $25.

Hope this helps someone.

 Journal of Captain Charles Lewis of Fredericksburg, Virginia, when in
the service of the colony of Virginia in the year 1755.
Oct 24 - A very wet day. We marched to Patterson's Creek, on which we
encamped      in a deserted house. We found here good corn, wheat and pasturage .
. . Colonel      Washington marched before Captain Ashby's company of Rangers - 14miles.

     Oct 25 - Marched from Patterson's Creek and passed many deserted
houses. I was      this day very curious in the examination of the mischief done in
the houses, and was      shocked at the havoc made by the barbarous and cruel Indians. Atone, Mecraggin's
     [James McCracken, near Ft. Ashby], I found the master of the
family, who had been      buried but slightly by his family and friends, after his
assassination, half out of the grave
     and eaten by the wolves; the house burnt, the cornfield laid waste
and an entire ruin      made. At half-after six we arrived at Fort Cumberland, cold and
Hungry. We had this      day, by Major Lewis's order, two women ducked for robbing the
deserted houses -      20 miles.
