Don't know if this will help but Chester Twp of Wells Co IN is not a
big place:

Two titles on family history in the Wells Co Public Library
<> include the Emory Sellers family
which was in or near Chester Twp.  Not sure where the family lived
before IN.

Since I have found no relation to my Sellers family which lived in the
next two townships, I don't have dates for that family at hand but I
believe they go back to mid to late 1800s in Chester Twp.

Folk by the name of Hunnicutt still live on the Liberty-Chester Twp
border.  Someone on the INWELLS-L list at Rootsweb may also have some

I realize Sellers no longer was the surname you were looking for by
the time of your Wells Co IN connection ... but for what it's worth,
here are the two titles (both for in-library use only):

Record # 1
Our roots Rush family / Ruth R. Sellers and Dorotha D. Sellers /
Poneto,In. [Chester & Liberty Twps, Wells Co] : Ruth Sellers cl979 /
64 p. / Contains genealogical charts and family group sheet.
Record # 2
The Doyles, Van Buren Township, Grant County, Indiana / Dorotha D.
Sellers, researcher and compiler, 1920- / 1984 / 3 looseleaf vols.
plus index : ill. / Research collected during 1980-1984; aides
Sellers, Ruth R. 1922- / Sellers, Margaret 1913

Hope this helps.

looking always for the elusive Harvey [Sellers, that is] as well as
Sellers/Zellers with connection to given or surnames Kerlin, Heber,
Wiltse, Ringler, Kline, Harner, Shively, Lasch ...

Dear Linda,
  This is so exciting...first time I have had contact with anyone related to
my Sellers/Swiharts.....
  Could I have photo copies of the Bible pages??
  If you are interested I can give you the family line from Jacob Swihart
and Mary Sellers and I have a copy of the record for marriage of their
daughter Nancy Margaret to Daniel Marion Hawley....
  Thankyou so much for sharing this info...
