from FRANK SELLERS

These are from Henry County, Illinois. The first one is an entry for the War of 1812 records. It also shows the destination of one of George Sellers' children who moved westward from Warren Co., OH.

All were attributed to either the "Portrait and Biographical Album of Henry County Illinois" or "History of Henry County." and were recently posted on Rootsweb.

1.From the "History of Western Township" section of the first book:

"SELLERS WM. Farmer, Sec. 18, P.O. Orion; born Warren Co. Ohio, July 11, 1827; came to county in 1862; Rep; Luth; 136 acres, value $7.500; son of George Sellers, of Ohio, who was under Gen. Harrison in the War of 1812; one of his most prominent battles was that in which Tecumseh was killed, name of wife was Sarah A. Surface, born Sept. 3. 1841, married Jan. 12, 1859; six children, five living, James M. born Dec. 3, 1859; Elmer E. born Nov. 21, 1862; Mary E. born April 9, 1865; Minnie and May (twins), born April 6, 1868, Minnie died in infancy; Stanley, born May 10, 1873."

2.I assume this is about a different Seller family.  It's from the "History of Wethersfield Township" section in the first book:

"In 1851, there were three families in Round Grove,—Seller's, Norton's and Charles. Dr. Norton removed to Galva when that place was started, and built the finest block of business houses in that place."

3.This entry is from the second book above. Roster of 112th Illinois Infantry, Company C.
