Salem Reformed Church Cemetery, MD.

Many Zeller, Zellers are buried in this Cemetery, two families who we believe to be Cousins lived in the same area. Most named their children very similiar to each other...

Our Zeller family found in Salem Graveyard, MD.

In June of 1999 my father and I took a trip to Washington County, Maryland, to finally get out of my system the curiousity of our family who died and remained in Maryland after our line migrated to Ogle County, Illinois in 1844. The trip was approx. 16 hours on the road. We finally, the second day found our family buried in Salem Graveyard, in between Cearfoss, and Hagerstown, MD. Samuel Zeller of Jonas was buried along side his wife as was David Zeller of Jonas and his wife. There were others buried there, who I believe to be the second family named Zeller, and cousins of our Zeller family. The first day we spent in Williamsport, MD. where more of our family lived.
