* Selner...Zelner...Zellner...Sellner (and other spellings)*

Updated September 6, 2000

We have traced our family to Samuel and Sarah Zelner in Springfield Twp and Nockamixon Twp, Bucks Co., Pa. Samuel was born in 1814, Sarah in 1816. Both are buried in Ferndale, Bucks Co. The name on their tombstones is spelled Zelner, but spelled Zellner or Sellner in the church records. Their children, Wilson, our Great Grandfather born in 1847, Malinda born in 1848, and Jefferson born in 1851 spelled their name Selner. Wilson became a Lutheran minister and lived in Luthersburg, Pa. Malinda married Mahlon Heaney in 1887, and Jefferson married Martha Shaffer in 1873 in Reiglesville, Bucks Co., PA. We think that Samuel's neighbors listed in the 1850 census, John Zelner (age 53) and wife Sarah (47), daughter Catherine (7), daugher Sarah (13) and mother (?) Catherina Zelner (78), as well as Peter Zelner (age 48) , wife Hannah (38), and son Charles (19) are brothers along with a Daniel Zelner who moved to Doylestown. But prove it? Not yet.....can you help? We'll gladly share what we have........................
