        Harry Mills <ab6kf@adams.net>

My name is Harry Mills. I am a descendent of  Drury Sellers. I am trying
to find his burial place. I have found his son Thomas Matthew and the wife
of Thomas,  Melissa Pennington. I am planning to go to Huntly Ne to search
for the son of Thomas, Miles Albert.  Any help you can give me would be
greatly appreciated.

I took pictures of the headstones of both Thomas and Melissa. If any one
wants them please let me know.

Thank you
Harry Mills



HARRY, I don't know if we show his burial . We may show the land he bought after he returned to IL from MO. =Buena Vista farm. Could they be buried there?

ANY info you have on THOMAS SELLERS and wife MELISSA PENNINGTON appreciated and if MILES ALBERT SELLERS is your connection. WE could link him to these counties in IL and did he go to NE? That helps others find you and that family and helps us know where the kids went.

PLEASE send a small name/date/place chart on child you connect to , etc. THANKS.
AM sending thru our SELLERS discussion group as we do have members working on DRURYs kids.
PLEASE, share what you can.

Yes, Miles Albert went to Huntley Nebraska. His Son Roscoe Sellers is my grand
father. My mother was born in Huntley.  My wife is putting a small chart
together and I will send to you tomorrow. She is the digger of information...

Thanks for the reply
