It looks like I found a duplicate entry for Michael Sellers=1850 DAVIS CO, IOWA

MICHAEL SELLERS 32 OH, PAGE 254, PERRY TWP
LUCRETIA 24 OH
MILES E. 4 IA
GEORGE 1 IA
next MIZE, EVANS
=====

Found in the 1850 Census for Pike Co IL is:
Michael Cellers, 31, M, PA
Lucretia Cellers, 23, F, OH
Niles Cellers, 3, M, IA
George Cellers, 1, M, IA

These are most certainly the same people.  Most likely moved
in the spring of 1850 around the time the census was taken and managed to get
into it in both locations?

Also found in the 1850 Pike Co IL census is:
Abram Nighswonger, 25, M, VA
Jane Nighswonger, 23, F, KY
Margare Nighswonger, 2, F, IL
Cynthia Sellers, 14, F, IL

and

Abraham H. Selders, 55, M, PA
Sarah Selders, 32, F, NY
Isaac F. Selders, 3, M, IL
Levina Selders, 2, F, IL
Martha A. Meachem, 7/12, F, IL

All three entries in Pike Co are in different townships so
there is no definate connection between the three families at this time.

I wasn't able to find the Michael Sellers family in the 1860 census in Pike
Co IL though they were there in 1850 and 1870.  I did find several families
that I do not know if they are connected.
