Here is the census information on Jacob (1793) and Deborah (Dunn)
Sellers family that I have gathered:

1840    date not known          Jacob Sellers and family were enumerated in
the 1840 federal census, on p. 84,

of the Vermilion County census

Here is my transcript of Jacob Sellers estate papers from Mercer County,
Illinois, and other related
events which take place prior to Jacob's death and set the stage for this
estate settlement:

1857    after December 12 (?)   Sale and assignment of Warrant No. 12426 is
signed by children and heirs-at-
law, authorizing purchaser to "locate the land and receive a patent
therefor", by:  Leannah (Sellers) Rader
and Joseph Rader; Elizabeth L. (Sellers) (Rutledge ? ) (Dailey) Lakey and
James Lakey; Angeline (Sellers)
(Fleming) Carpenter and John Carpenter; Milly (Sellers) Wood and Enoch B.
Wood.

This document is witnessed by George W. Warner, J. P.  (I believe that these
families resided in Mercer
County, Illinois, at the time of its signing.)

1857    after December 12 (?)    Sale and assignment of Warrant No. 12426 is
signed by children and heirs-at-
law, authorizing purchaser to "locate the land and receive a patent
therefor", by:  Olive (Sellers) Crook and
Galen Crook; Wealthy (Sellers) Henderson (she is married to John B.
Henderson, but his signature or mark
does not appear); Malinda Sellers (she is not yet married); Davis Sellers
(he is married, but his wife does
not sign); and George Sellers (he is married, but his wife does not sign).

This document is witnessed by Joseph Edgington and Charles Fleming.  (I
believe that these families were
have resided in Hardin County, Iowa, at the time of its execution.  Davis
John Sellers and his nephew,
Charles Fleming, both enlisted in Company F, 32nd Iowa Volunteer Infantry,
and served in Captain
Edgington's Company.  Edgington is a well-known Eldora, Hardin County, Iowa,
name.  Davis' older
brother, George Sellers, named fifth child and second oldest son Charles
Fleming Sellers.)

1857    December 12             Jacob Sellers died in or near New Boston,
Mercer County, Illinois.  His estate
was administered by Amos Prouty, J. P.  (See marriage of Davis Sellers,
below).

1856    March 18                Jacob Sellers entered his mark on an
assignment of his Bounty Land Certificate
to his married children and their spouses.  The assignment is witnessed by
Th. Willits, A. D. Sisk,
and J. A. Sisk.

1855    December 18             Bounty Land Certificate No. 12426 granted to
Jacob Sellers by the U. S.
Department of Interior, Office of the Commissioner of Pensions.  This
entitled him to claim 160 acres of
land in Arkansas, Missouri, Illinois, or in other states.  [I have a
photocopy of this certificate which traces to
one obtained from the pertinent Commissioner's Office in Washington, D. C.,
by Miss Nellie I. McMillan,
great-granddaughter of Davis John Sellers.  - RKH]

1855    March 24                In Mercer County, Illinois, Jacob Sellers
executed an application for a
Certificate for Bounty Land based on his military service during the War of
1812.  He was allowed bounty
land in full satisfaction for his service rendered.

1855    March 3                 Pertinent Bounty Land Act passed by Congress
and signed into effect by
President Franklin Pierce.  The 1855 Act extended bounty-land privileges
even further than all previous
acts.  It made 160 acres the minimum entitlement and reduced service
requirements in any war since 1790
to fourteen days or even less in certain cases.

Here is my collection of pertinent marriage records from Mercer County,
Illinois, and some information
related to some of these couples' subsequent migration to Hardin County,
Iowa:

County, Illinois.  Marshall T. Fleming is the oldest son of John William and
Angeline (Sellers) Fleming.

1851    August 8                Angeline (or Angelina) Sellers born to
George and Martha Jane (West) Sellers in
[Mercer County (?), ] Illinois.

ca. 1851        date unknown            Vashti Gibson, the future 1st wife
of James West Sellers, born in [now New
Boston Township, Mercer County (?), ] Illinois [the 1870 federal census says
IN].

1851    date not known          Hardin County, Iowa, (from unorganized
territory) formed.

1850 Sep 14 - 1851 Nov 20       Deborah (Dunn) Sellers apparently died in
[Mercer County, Illinois (?)  -- RKH ] .

Cheers.  Rollie



ROLLIE, Thank You.
I believe they give 1812 war markers . I wonder if you have enough
info/proof that he died here (looks like it to me) to order one for JACOB SELLERS 1793?
I believe they are free and you fill out a paper and request one. Thanks,
marie, iowa
