I've been doing some research on the Sellers family, and came upon
some of your information. I'm a decendent of Howell Sellers, and was wondering
you would want to trade info. with me. If interested contact me at
We don't have much info on SCOTT and MORGAN CO'S IL, so if you have collected any documents or 1835 or 1840 census, would appreciate. Thanks, marie, iowa
This info helps All of Connect and sort out our families. Do you
know who this is=
THOMAS J. SELLER AND ELIZA CONLEY, OCT 13, 1831 (Morgan Co,Il)
And if you know Where in ARKANSAS they went ca 1900 we can link to whatever info we have in that county, state.
At one time, Glenda had some probate papers? on Margaret Sellers in /ca1844. I believe she tried to send/scan them to us and couldn't read or make out? Memory. There could be more or some proof in those that would help prove Charles' death? like not buying at the sale, etc or him Not signing Off the probate papers?
If you contact her on same and she sends, please have her send me a copy for our records.
Thanks for sharing. marie, iowa

I have quite a few pieces of paperwork that I can send to you.
Send me your address, and I will mail in the next few days.
Howell Sellers Will names his son Charles, but no grandchildren.
Matilda Sellers does remarry to Samuel Osborn, and they have
kids of their own. I have a copy of their marriage certificate.
I'll get you a breakdown, but early on, I believe Almina marries,
Solomon lives with his mother & stepfather, Milton & Milley are
living with grandparents. Milton's admission papers to the Vet's
Home in Quincy, proves his birth date & place of birth (TENN).
He was also a civil war veteran, 129th IL. Infantry, Co.I, mostly
men from Naples, IL.. I haven't found any church records yet.
I'm still looking for Milton, Millie & kids in 1880. I have an idea
they might have been in Brown Co. IL..(found some of the kids
there around 1888). After 1870, Milton & Millie have two more
kids, Nellie & Jacob. Matilda Osborn shows up in the 1860
census with three kids, and in 1870, living with her son.
No info. of any kind on her after 1870. No divorce papers on
Sam & Matilda, but I've found where he sold land in Scott Co.
and moved to Hancock Co. Il.. ca 1860-61. State archives show
Samuel Osborn (1870) living in Chile Township, Hancock Co.
and his son John living in the same area. I have obits. for Almina
& Solomon, one sentence from the local paper (1886) about
Millie passing away (Milton's wife), and have located the graves
for these four, Almina, Solomon, Milton & their sister Milley.
I have more, will send later today. Excuse the format, Rootsweb
tells me that they won't accept it the way I usually type it in.
