Two pictures of George Sellers can be found at:
They were taken in December 1947 in Pike Co IL.

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

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
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.

As far as I can tell none of these Sellers are in my lines though
my home county. Just thought it may help someone else.
Jeremiah Pence, farmer, sec. 6; P. O., Pittsfield; was born in Rockingham
county, Va., in 1807; is a son of William and Christina (Sellers) Pence, of
that State. He was married in Ohio in 1832, to Margaret A. Brawly, a native
of North Carolina; he came to this county in 1837, and the following year he
selected the site of his present home, which, from an unbroken wilderness,
has been transformed to a well cultivated farm, comprising 185 acres, valued
at $40 per acre. Mr. P. is one of the oldest settlers of the county, and a
staunch Democrat. Of his several children 3 are living.

Would someone do an obit look up for an
Alice Sellers, SCHIPULL,SHAPOHL (Br 1859) Died Dec 9, 1898 Buried in Hull Cemetery, Pike Co Her grave marker is Sellers. Her maiden name was Sellers and she married Godfrey Schipull Dec 22, 1897, by the County Judge. Am also looking for obit on Godfrey Schipull Br 1848/49 Germany who died shortly after his wife Alice and child died and is also buried in the Hall Cemetery but there is no marker. Records show Shapohl with no dates or or age and A child (no dates, age or name) also buried with no marker in the same Cemetery. Godfrey died from poisoning??!! Leads to a little mystery! But did write for Corner Records etc and there was no information other than the Hull Cemetery page 57 record. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you Peace, Shirley - CT.shirley Greimann [firstname.lastname@example.org]
