|The Selecman family in the United States are all descended from the same Henry Salikman who arrived sometime in 1750 and settled in Occoquan Virginia in 1752.He had four sons, Henry, George, William and Thomas who lived to adulthood and had families, and four daughters;Barbary Dorathy, Catherine Fisher, Ann (1)Powell, (2) Warner, (3) Johnson, and Margaret (1) Troops, (2) Anderson.The grave markers of Margaret's daughter Katherine, her husband Robert Allen and son Robert D Allen; also of Katherine's daughter Margaret, husband Edward Conner,daughter Jane and daughter Margaret are all that are still standing in the family cemetery at Rolling Farm (now Westminster Retirement home) just outside of Occoquan.According to a family history written in the 1940's many of the early Selecman's were buried here, and unmarked graves and broken base stones still exist.Another stone, detached from it's setting, is Wm. Lacy/Co 'E'/33rd Ind. Inf.It is believed this is the father of James Thomas'(grandson of William)wife Agnes.Other early Selecmans are buried in other cemeteries in Occoquan and in near-by Pohick.|
The ninth generation of Selecman's still live in Occoquan,
as well as Joan Herendon, and Almina Cross, also Selecman descendents.Others scattered into Kentucky and Missouri in the 1850's.Bishop Charles Selecman, once President of Southern Methodist University, was from Missouri.
