GenForum > SELBY > #986 has information on the other Zachariah. You can find him in German, Montgomery, OH, on the FamilySearch database of the 1880 Census.

Zachariah SELBY, b. ca. 1775, m. Mary Ann WEASE. Some have listed him as Zachariah T. SELBY, but I think his full name was Zachariah Fowler SELBY. They went from Kentucky to White Oak Springs, Pike Co., IN, between 1807 & 1813.

They had a large family including Zachariah (25 Oct. 1827 - 29 Apr. 1875, bu. Burkhart Cem., Pike Co., IN) m. 21 Apr. 1849, Matilda DUNNING. Zachariah, Matilda, & ch. Winfield S., Abner N., & Geo. W. were on the 1860 Census. In 1870, they had added Henderson & Thomas. The marriage and death dates for Zachariah are verified on USGenWeb > Indiana > Pike County. There's a search engine.

I think the line goes like this:
William SELBY, will pr. 1699, Pr. Geo. Co., MD; wid. Mary m2. J. CECIL.
William SELBY, will pr. 1733, m1. Sarah MAGRUDER; m2. Eliz. SMITH.
William Magruder SELBY (ca. 1709 - 1783) m. Martha WILSON
Lingan Wilson SELBY (ca. 1753, MD - 1821, Green or Adair Co., KY) m. ca. 1774, Drucilla FOWLER, d/o Jeremiah. By 1787, they were of Ohio Co., VA.
Zachariah SELBY, b. ca. 1775, MD.

Census of 1776, Pr. Geo. Co., MD, numerals are ages of males, then females:

FOWLER, Isaac, 33, 12, 6; Elizabeth, 28, 7, 1.
FOWLER, Jeremiah, 65, 27, 21, 17, 13, 10; Drucilla, 53, 38, 16, 7.
SELBEY, James, 29 & 25; Ruth, 23, 1. [This is confusing. I think that James was head, but the household included Josiah, 25, who had married Ruth.]
SELBEY, Nathan, 41, 8, 5; Agnes, 28, 2.
[SELBEY], Lingan, 23, 1; Drucilla, 20.
SELBEY, William W., 47, 31, 14, 12, 4, 2; Elizabeth, 30, 17, 9, 6.
This is another confusing one. The male, 31, could be Thomas.]
SELBY, Joshua, 35; Sarah, 35, 11.
FOWLER, Thomas, 30, 21, femaled 3,3,1.
SELBY, William M., 67; Martha, 63, 16. [Families were all close on the census.]
