Jennie is our subject's daughter, but she should be surnamed HORN because she is the wife of Reuben HORN the grandchildren are her children.  But where is Reuben (he didn't die til 1923)?  Are they separated?  Did they get divorced?

8.  Email from Larry Cellar, 16 Aug 2001:
Obit of Mrs. Eliza Gillies Harter Cellar, wife of Rev. T.J. Cellar, lists son Geo. and grandkids...  It lists George B. Cellar as one of the nephews from Westerville, Ohio...  Eliza passes away July 20, 1917.  Rev. died May 25, 1904.  This is from Prospect, Ohio, scrapbook, Ohio Pioneers.

9.  Anon.  1883.  The History of Hardin County, Ohio.  Warner, Beers, & Co., Chicago (online at Heritage Pursuit):
REV. T.J. CELLAR. clergyman, Forest, is a grandson of the late Rev. -- Cellar, if not of German birth, certainly of German extraction, and who became a pioneer of Delaware County, Ohio, where he settled in 1802 and remained a resident of until his death.  His son, George, father of the subject of this sketch, was born in Franklin County, Penn., and died in Delaware County, Ohio.  His wife, Rachel Fleming, was a native of Venango County, Penn., and is still living at the ripe age of eighty years.  George and his father were both Elders of the Presbyterian Church.  George and his wife were the parents of seven sons and two daughters, of whom the following, survive: Thomas J., Moses H. (in Kansas), John A.F., Sarah J., George C., Wilson F. (Presbyterian clergyman) and Martha E.  Rev. T.J. Cellar was born in Delaware County, Ohio, October 1, 1827, and after receiving a common school education, entered the Ohio Wesleyan University at Delaware, from which he graduated.  He was licensed to preach in 1866 and ordained in June of the following year.  His pastoral labors began in November, 1866, in Wyandot County, Ohio, and from there he moved to Forest in 1873.  He was married to Eliza G. Harter, by whom he has a family of six children, five of whom survive, viz., George A., Jennie B., Enora H., Martha E. and Anna P.
I strongly disagree that the CELLARs are of German descent (please see next Source).
