Washington Co. MD/Jacob Zeller's Cromwell G-child
Posted by: STEVEN HIGLEY (ID *****4806) Date: March 30, 2002 at 05:26:03

I made a trip down to the Maryland State Archives last week and found the will of Jacob Zellers who died in Washington County in 1833... just before Oliver Cromwell Zellers was born. In it he mentions his three sons Samuel, David and Daniel as well as his six grandchildren - the children of Joseph and Nathan Cromwell. His six grandchildren had all been orphaned before Jacob died. In the will, he left his six grandchildren a sum of money and all his land in Reed and Thompson Townships - SENECA COUNTY, OHIO - to be divided equally. This is the only other connection I have ever found between Washingon Co., MD where Oliver was born and Seneca Co., OH where he lived as an adult (with Ogle Co., IL in between somewhere!).

I am seeking any information on these Cromwell grandchildren of Jacob Zellers, especially information on THEIR children.
