Zellers in IN & PA: Henry Zellers and Elizabeth Imhoff

Surnames: Zellers, Zeller, Imhoff, Conn, Coon, Johnson
To everyone:

I am trying to use every resouce possible to help verify and expand my family tree. I'm especially interested in linking Henry Zellers (of Union Co., PA) to other Zellers. There are plenty of Zellers in the Pulaski County, IN area... which is where my branch of the family eventually migrated. A brief overview of the tree I've gotten together thusfar. Most information seems to be verfied and correct up to Henry Zellers. Beyond him, I rely more on other people's trees and vague assuptions. Here goes what I have so far:

Henry Zellers (b. August 10, 1796)
m. Elizabeth Imhoff (b. August 31, 1798)
They had 10 children (?):

Elizabeth Zellers (b. January 23, 1818, Mifflin Co. PA)
John Zellers (b. December 06, 1819, Mifflin Co. PA)
Isaac Zellers (b. June 14, 1821, Juniata Co. PA)
Katherina Zellers (b. September 01, 1828, Union Co. PA)
*Rudolph W. Zellers (b. January 22, 1831, Union Co. PA)
Benjamin Franklin Zellers (b. June 15, 1833, Union Co. PA)
Enoch Zellers (b. Abt. 1835)
Barbara Zellers (b. January 31, 1837, Union Co. PA)
Henry Zellers (b. August 12, 1839, Union Co. PA)
Nancy Zellers (b. Abt. 1844)

NOTE: I have some uncertainty that all these children belong to Henry and Elizabeth. I have compiled them from several other family trees. Especially since the counties they have listed do not always match (e.g. Union/Mifflin/Juniata).

*Rudolph W. Zellers
m. Jane Conn/Coon (b. Abt. 1837, Marion/Crawford Co., OH)
They had 8 children:

*John Zellers (b. August 14, 1854, Pulaski Co., IN)
Harriet Elizabeth (b. Abt. 1856, Pulaski Co., IN)
Henry Zellers (b. 1858, Pulaski Co., IN)
Benjamin Zellers (b. Abt. 1859, Pulaski Co., IN)
Louisa Caroline Zellers (b. Abt. 1863, Pulaski Co., IN)
Warren R. Zellers Zellers (b. Abt. 1866, Pulaski Co., IN)
Mary Etta Zellers (b. Pulaski Co., IN)
William Zellers (b. Pulaski Co., IN)

*John Zellers
m. Sarah "Sally" Johnson (b. September 28, 1859, OH)
They had 7 children:

Benjamin Zellers (b. April 23, 1883, IN)
Warren William Zellers (b. July 05, 1884, IN)
Elsie Zellers (b. November 18, 1887, IN)
Leo Richard Zellers (b. November 02, 1893, IN)
Jessie/Leslie? Zellers (b. January 10, 1895, IN)
Bessie Zellers (b. 1901, IN)
*Harold John Zellers (b. October 10, 1904, Jasper Co., IN)

*Harold John Zellers is my grandfather
survived by his wife and 3 grandchildren, including myself.


Beyond Henry Zellers is a bit of a mystery right now. I have his father possibly being Frederick Zellers
And possibly having 4 other siblings, including:
Catherine Zellers
Mary Zellers
Lidia Zellers
Andrew (b. December 01, 1815)

I have Frederick possibly having a brother named Benjamin Zellers (b. June 14, 1781) and a father named John Zeller (b. March 08, 1741/42), which seems to be where Zeller --> Zellers.

Most of this information I can't verify, only gotten from other sources. But if anyone can verfify or correct this information, please contact me!
