Parthena Sellers
consort of William Sellers
who departed this life April 30th 1828
aged 26 years 9 months and 22 days

Michael Sellers sent the following on 28 Jan 2004

"William was the oldest son of Peter and Elizabeth (Runkle) Sellers and was a grandson of my own 5 Great Grandfather, Adam Sellers. Peter Sellers died in Warren County on 15 August, 1807, of Yellow Fever leaving William, Adam, Elizabeth, and Joseph B. fatherless. William's mother, Elisabeth, remarried to Malachi Swift in 1809. William was the older brother to the Dr. Adam Sellers who is buried in the Lebanon Cemetery. He was also the "William Seller" listed as being chosen guardian on April 10, 1819, along with mother Elizabeth (Runkle) (Sellers) Swift, by younger brothers, Adam Sellers and Joseph Sellers.

William married Parthena Harrison November 19, 1819, and they had one child, a son, named Theodore B. Sellers.

After Parthena died April 30, 1828, William married Maria M. Harrison on April 15, 1829, and they had two children, Anna Maria and William H. Sellers. Thus, the Anna Maria Smith, "daughter of Wm and M.M. Sellers" that William is buried next to is his daughter with his second wife, Maria M. Harrison. Anna Maria Sellers had married E.G. Smith. On the other side of William is his first wife, Parthena."
