The Great Granchildren of Jacob Zeller who died in 1794 listed in last message. They were the Grandchildren of Jacob Zeller who died in 1833. I neglected to put great in there for the elder Jacob. There are Cromwell burials in Zeller Family Cemetery near Hagerstown, MD. Both Jacob's are buried at the old farm place and most of Jacob Jr. family are buried in Salam Graveyard, near Cearfoss. There two Zellers families buried in Salam Graveyard. Two Samuel's, and two Daniel's. David Zeller 1805-1888 of Jonas was buried there also, but I found the other David of Jacob in Rose Hill Cemetery, in Hagerstown, MD. I have the older Jacob's Will but don't have Jacob Jr. Will. If you get extra time sometime maybe you could send me a copy. The rest of the Zellers children of Jonas are buried Ogle County, IL. The marriage license dated 1855 in Ogle Co. for Oliver Cromwell Zellers as you already know is awful suspicious with regards to my Great Great Grandfather Daniel Boone Zellers coming to Ogle County, IL. from Washington Co., MD. in 1844, and then in 1853 his older brother Michael Cramer Zeller coming to Ogle Co., IL. from Washington Co., MD. in 1853, now we found a sister Nancy (Zellers) Ritchison who also came to Ogle County with her second husband Robert Richardson (Ritchison). Nancy & Robert's marriage license sowed up in MD. but Nancy is listed under her first husband's name Ridenour. Her tombstone at Silver Creek says Ritchison.. All three siblings are buried in Silver Creek Cemetery, Mt. Morris Twp., Ogle County, IL. I live about 2 1/2 miles from there. There are also records that I have that a David Zeller of Washington Co., MD. purchased land in Springfield, IL... I do also believe that a Daniel also purchased land there. But the Ogle Co., / Wash. Co., MD. thing is really interesting.
