I checked the listing of all cemeteries in Chester, Pleasant and Pawpaw
Townships around N. Manchester and did not find Barbara, Aaron or
Rebecca Sellers. Sorry.

Stan,

Thanks for the thoughtful and thorough info. I'm sure it will be of
great
help.

I'm looking for the final resting place of an individual rather than a
family at this point. The person is Aaron Sellers. I cannot say for
certain that he was a member of the COB, though its certainly possible.
I
just haven't gathered enough about him to know for certain, so I don't
want
to tie up the list unnecessarily.

The last I/we know of Aaron Sellers was that he was in North Manchester
as
late as 1883 when he was 40 years old. Its generally accepted that he
"died
relatively young", so I suspect that he did pass away and was buried in
North Manchester. He was listed as living in North Manchester on the
1880
Census, and a death notice dated February 14, 1883, for his mother,
Barbara
Ohmart Sellers, stated that Aaron was a citizen of North Manchester at
that
time (thanks to Karin Rettinger for that info!).

He was married to a "Rebecca", however, her maiden name is unknown and
what
happened to her has also remained a mystery.

If it turns out Aaron was not COB, my apologies for the list for getting
us
sidetracked.

Michael Sellers
