Hello Everyone,

There are a lot of us that descend from this couple. There are a lot of us that are interested in genealogy, I know as I see that you have downloaded my data, pictures, documents and stories.

My last major break though was the discovery of John and family in Huntingdon, PA, which was made public many years ago through a couple of cousins. That effort alone took at least 5 years.

The name SALES is the morphed edition of his name that has been used for the last three generations. Prior to this his name was spelled Sell, Sill, Celle, Sells, Zalz, Zoelz, Sails, Sales. With the descendents additional spellings were brought out, Sayles and Sailes, and finally Sales.

I believe that Catherine was at least a second wife. His age indicates that he was probably Revolutionary War material. I believe that he was born in the US of German ancestry.

I am looking for descendents that have the passion for genealogy that I have and would like to partner up with me to make the next leg of the journey back in time.

For all of you that have his children in Huntingdon, PA... you are there because of my research...I hope in the next leg of this journey that I do not prove that to be wrong, but I thank you for the faith.

Anyone out there that has an interest, will you please let me know...I would love another victory within my life time.

Nancy
