In Response To: Re: Sophia Sellers, the daughter of Adam Sellers ()
Hi Art, that is very interesting, the test I used, was the newer ancestry.com DNA testing method which is modeled after 23andme. They test the 23 autosomes that are past down to us from each and every ancestor, male and female. Ancestry.com, can even give you a more precise estimate of where in Africa, Europe, Asia, our ancestor's came from, I thought that was neat, they just unveiled that about three weeks ago. I also had my brother (paternal line) tested for me on 23andme, so I have two DNA results on 23andme. Are you also related to Sophia Sellers-Clemens, line? I was given the name of Roane, from a lady at the historical library in Darke Co., Ohio, she said he was on a board that was trying to get the Clemens Farmstead refurbished, because it is now a historical landmark, that would be so wonderful, if that happened. Do you know if anyone in the Greenville, Ohio settlement, between 1850 and 1860 died of cholera, I read an article from a book that mentioned that a man had died in 1849, actually, he and others died of cholera in Randolph County, Indiana, in 1849, I wonder if that is what happened to my gr gr grandfather Mathew Shaffer. Thank's Art, for letting me know that you are also a DNA match with the Sellers, line. Paul Heinegg, posted a message to me also and said that there was also a family of free African American Sellers, that lived in Hardy County, Virginia, starting about 1782 to 1820 which included, Frederick, Susanna, Margaret, Elias, George, Abraham, and Monaz Sellers. I mentioned to him, that I was a DNA match with two white Sellers, who have mention of Adam Sellers, Christian or Christopher Sellers, who was a descendant of Adam Sellers, and Heinrich Sellers, his father, in their tree. I asked him if this line could also be descended from Adam Sellers, or his father? Thanks again Art, for the information and the fact that we may have a common ancestor, neat!
