Pilgrim Ancestors of Revolutionary Soldiers
No. 6 - The Selleck Family of CT, NY, GA and SC
By Mary-Agnes Brown-Groover
A.B., LL. B. S.J.D.

[Note at bottom of page: Mrs. Groover is a descendant of Isaac Allerton and a member of the D.C. Mayflower Society. Her husband, the late Gordon L. Groover, M.D., was a descendant of Aurelia Selleck. The author has been a member of the bar of D.C. and the Supreme Court, and is a Lt. Col., Army Reserver, retired. She served in the Pacific in charge of the WAC during WWII and received the Legion of Merit.]

FREDERICK[6] SELLECK was born in 1755 to Gershom and Puella (Gorham) Selleck of Stamford, Fairfield County, CT. Puella, sometimes called Priscilla, was a fifth generation descendant of John Howland and Elizabeth Tilley of the Mayflower. In 1757 Gershom moved his family to Salem NY where, presumably, their daughter Charlotte was born in 1763. In 1777 the Sellecks were living in South Salem NY, in Westchester County, just over the line from Ridgefield CT. This county suffered severely during the Revolution. The whole southern part was marked by the marches, works of defense, or skermishes and battles of the armies. In 1784, Charlotte married Stephen Fitch who died in 1848, son of Bushnell Fitch.

Frederick Selleck and his father Gershom received pay for service in the Revolutionary War as enlisted men in Crane's Regiment of the New York Militia for Westchester County, which is located on Long Island Sound. On 12 July, 1785, Frederick acknowledged receipt from Thadeus Crane of [pounds]5 11s. 6d. as settlement in full for his services. Military records also show two levy certificates delivered to Fradrick Sillick on 26 Aug. 1785, one for [pounds]18 4s. 4d. on orders of Gershon Sillick, the other for [pounds]7 17s. 10d. on orders of Abraham Hanford. The ranks which father and son held and their specific military services are not known. The U.S. Adjutant General has stated that Frederick and Gershom Selleck are the only soldiers of those names found to have served in the Revolution.

After the war, Gershom returned to Fairfield County CT where he was recorded as a family head in the first U.S. Census, 1790. About this time, Frederick married Esther Hanford, daughter of Theophilus and Keziah Hanford. Esther was born in New Canaan CT, 27 Mar. 1760 and was a descendant of Thomas Hanford. Frederick and Esther had a son Frederick William[7] born 26 June 1791, and a daughter Aurelia born about 1797.

On 30 Sept. 1791 Frederick Sillick was appointed a lieutenant of the state militia group in newly formed Herkimer County, in the middle of New York state, and on 25 Sept. 1793 he was appointed a captain-lieutenant of a troop of horse for the company. His name also comes up in the militia records on 25 Mar. 1797.

Census records show Frederick and his family residing in Rome NY in 1800. The 1810 census does not show the Sellecks probably because both he and Esther died prior to that date. The town of Rome occupied the site of Fort Stanwix which was built in 1758 and repaired in 1777 to protect the valuable Mohawk Valley in eastern NY from the British.

In 1815, orphans Frederick[7] Selleck, aged 24, and Aurelia aged 19, were living with relatives in Savannah. Both married and left descendants in Georgia. Aurelia married Dr. John Bryant Greene of Screven Co. GA 13 April 1815 and had nine children.

A son of Frederick[7] served in the Mexican War - on 13 Sept. 1847, Lt. Frederick W. Selleck of the famed Palmetto Regiment, raised the first American flag over the City of Mexico, sustaining serious wounds as he did so. A monument was erected in his honor by his Captain, Foster Marshall, in Abbeville SC, and his portrait was hung in the State House in Columbia.
