 Obituary for Melissa PENNINGTON SELLERS
Macomb Journal
Melissa Sellers died Sept. 2, 1901 at about 2:30 a.m. at the home of her son, M. A, Sellers (note-his full name was Miles Albert Sellers who married
Elizabeth A. Strickland 10/25/1874) of Emmet township with whom she lived for a number of years. Her ailment was general disability. Her age was 87 years,
7 months and 25 days. Melissa Pennington was born June 6, 1814 in Barren county, Kentucky. When about 4 years old she moved with her parents to Crawford county, Indiana. About four years later they moved to Franklin county, Illinois and when 11 years of age moved to Schuyler county and in 1870 came to McDonough county. She was united in marriage to Thomas Sellers Dec. 23, 1833 (error-they married 12/23/1832). To this union 12 children were born, of whom only three survive: Leroy Sellers of near Rushville, Schuyler county; M. A. Sellers of Emmit township, this county, Melissa Belle Schroeder of Huntley, Neb. Her husband died 46 years ago. She had three sons in the Civil war--John A., Co. B, 84th Reg., Ill. Vol., who was killed at the battle of Stone River; Andrew T. and Leroy were members of Co. A, 10th Mo. Andrew T., after serving three years with his regiment, was mustered out and started home on a vessel called the General Lyon. The vessel and all onboard were lost. Leroy being the only person who lived to return home.
She was one of the earliest settlers in Schuyler County. When she crossed the Illinois river there were only about 14 families then in that county. She was a sister to Joel Pennington, the first sheriff of Schuyler county (error-Joel was the second sheriff).
Mrs. Sellers joined the Methodist church in Schuyler county about 50 years ago, in which faith she had lived ever since.
Funeral services were held at the Guy church Monday afternoon by Rev. T. Brown; internment in the Walker cemetery.
Note: Melissa's mother was Ann Osborn(e) and her father was Moses Pennington.

Surname: Nelson, Russell, Sellers
-------------------------

My great grandmother was Cora Bell Russell Sellers b.January 1864 in LaHarpe,
Hancock County, Illinois d. January 1944 in Moline, Rock Island County,
Illinois. She married Stanton Sellers on January 1, 1880 in McDonough County,
Illinois.

Her parents were Albert Russell b. 1838 in Tennessee and Sarah Matilda
Nelson Russell b. August 1842 in Illinois (buried in Maryville, MO).

Parents of Sarah Matilda Nelson were William Nelson b. January 1809 and
Susana Arnett Nelson b. March 1817.

Cora Bell had a sister named Elizabeth (Lizzie)

I believe the parents of Albert Russell were James Russell and Martha King
Russell.

Would like to find more information on the Nelson and Russell families,
and share information.

  I came upon this family of Sellers while researching the Tomberlins and Pennington family line. My Gr. Gr. Grandfather Asa #2 Sellers born in Green County Pa. 1843, married a Tomberlin Girl in McDonough County Illinois in the year of 1865. Listed below are Sellers from I believe one genealogy line, but not mine. I found a Drury Sellers ca. 1795 and a Thomas Sellers Warren Tenn. Born 1812 and others. I do hope that this might help one of our Sellers Cousins. FDH. Dennis

Marie:

I don't know the particular laws and practices of the State of Illinois in
reference to old records, but many states house older documents, such as
wills, probate, estate records, etc., in their State Archives instead of at the
county level. Has anyone looking for documentation contacted the State
Archives of Illinois to see if they have this documentation?  I checked the
State of Illinois Archives databases online, and found that the records for
Schuyler and McDonough Co., IL are housed at Western Illinois University Library
(Regional Archives):
wiu.edu/library/units/archives/archives_web.sphp?id=104.
This site gives contact information and other specifics.

Also I found this reference online 
archive.org/stream/combinedhistoryo00wrbr/combinedhistoryo00wrbr_djvu.txt

The Tullis settlement extended its hospitalities to Drury
Sellers and Robert L. Dark, his son-in-law, in the spring of
1828, and they secured a house by purchasing the cabin and
improvement of Charles Hatfield, on the southwest quarter
of section two, where they made their home together for a
short time, and then Robert L. Dark bought the northwest
quarter of section one, built himself a cabin, and continued
his improvements. Both these settlers became permanent
residents of the county, and were among the first to invade
and improve other townships. Sellers becoming a pioneer
of Littleton, where he died, and Dark of Brooklyn, where
he lived for many years, ultimately removing to Macomb.
Descendants of Drury Sellers now occupy the old homestead
in the western portion of Littleton. Robert L. Dark was
one of the pioneer teachers of the county, and was a useful
member of the community in which he lived.

HISTORY OF SCHUYLER AND BROWN COUNTIES, ILLINOIS. (published 1886)

And this reference for a Robert L. Dark in McDonough Co., IL, where it
mentions his wife going back to Schulyer Co., IL. The statements seems a bit
contradictory, and neither mentions the given name of the wife, but it may help
in the search for documentation.

Robert L. Dark's Reminiscences. — I first came to McDonouo-h
county in 1829 and with my family camped upon Camp Creek. The
Indians were then still numerous in the county and often came to
our cabin. My wife could not rid herself of a natural fear of the
red man, and desired to return to tSchuyler county, from Avhieh
we removed. To this I objected. Twice, while I was away, she
packed up all our household goods, preparatory to starting, but I
returned just in time to stop all such proceedings. Business again
called me away, and I had no sooner lett than she again packed
up, and loading the goods on the wagon, with our two little ones
she started for the vicinity of Rushville. I met them a short dis-
tance from the Schuyler county line and tried to prevail on her to
return, but this time without avail. ^STo amount of coaxing could
make her change her mind. As "the mountain would not go to
Mahomet, Mahomet would have to go to the mountain," so I went
with her, and we settled near Rushville, where we lived about
four vears, and as a considerable settlement had been made near the
present town of Industry, I again prevailed on my wife to go
with me to McDonough county, where I settled on the farm on
which I now live, on section 30, Industry township. I have
never regretted so doing, notwithstanding we have seen hard
times, yet we believe ''all is for the best."
