         Hi Lynn, I am in Kent County, right next door to Ottawa County. Have access
to Michigan census records starting at 1840. If you need me to do a census
lookup let me know.

         Here in Michigan I have a Leonard McKnight Sellers, died November 12, 1922
age 73. He lived in Cedar Springs and died there. Death cert. says born
Pennsylvania. Never maried so no parents name on cert.
Believe he owned a newspaper named The Cedar Springs Clipper and may have
been involved in politics.

I also found a Joseph Sellers on the 1830 Chippewa County Michigan census
listed as between 30-40 years old I don't know if maybe a relation to George
or not?

While researching my husbands family in Washtenaw County, Michigan I
came across a couple of bios about Sellers from The History of
Washtenaw and Livingston Counties, Lyndon Township, page 747........

George SELLERS, Jr., was born in New York city, Oct., 30, 1828, and
came with his parents to Lyndon tp. in 1836. He was married Nov. 17,
1857, to Betsey A. DRAKE of Lyndon tp., who was born in Wayne county,
N.Y., Oct. 16, 1841. They have 3 children-Amanda, George H., and Mary.
Maggie is deceased. Mr. SELLERS was a soldier in Co. K, 20th Regt.
Mich. Vol Inf., and during that time suffered the untold horrors of a
southern prison for a few months. His father, George SELLERS, sr.
(dec.), was a pioneer of this county, having arrived here October,
1836, and 6 of his children are still living-Edward, George, Thomas
CARTRAW, a step-son, and three daughters. Mrs. SELLERS died in April,

Tate WATSON, farmer, sec. 1; P.O., Unadilla, Livingston county; was
born in Yorkshire, England, Oct. 9, 1810. His parents, George and Mary
WATSON, emigrated to America in 1834, first stopping at Wyoming, N.Y.,
where Tate remained 11 years, and then removed to Washtenaw county,
Mich., permanently locating on sec. 1, where he has since lived. Mr.
WATSON received his education in England, and has been very fortunate
in business affairs, having accumulated sufficient means to enable him
to pass the remainder of his days in peace and plenty. He was married
in 1845 to Mary McMICHAEL a native of Scotland. They had 2
children-Mary, wife of Charles YOCUM, of Ingham county, Mich., and
George, who died when an infant. Mrs. WATSON died in June, 1866, and
is interred in Unadilla cemetery. Mr. W. was again married, Nov. 24,
1868, to Mrs. Harriet YOCUM, wife of Mahlon YOCUM (dec.), who was born
in New York city Nov. 3, 1831, and daughter of George and Sarah
(SELLERS) YOCUM. By her former marriage she has 2 children-Jennie L.
and Milton T.
