Zellers: the French connection?
Posted by: Bob Crowl (ID *****5399) Date: February 24, 2006 at 06:06:42
  of 126

My great-grandmother was Mary Elizabeth (ZELLERS) McClellan (b. 1873 in Ohio). Her obituary stated that she was a native of Stuebenville, Ohio. According to 4 of her siblings found in US census records, the father was born in France (Alsace)- possible connection to the Sellaire or Cellier family of France? Below is the information that I have gathered to date. Does anyone have any additional information on this line?
