In Chester County Births, 1682-1800 by John T Humphrey, there was a Samuel and Mary (TAYLOR) SELLERS, Quakers, at Kennett Square Monthly Meeting, but no son named George or John George is listed.

 

Also in the book is a George SELER, born 12/18/1783, parents George Philip and Elizabeth SELER, baptised at East Vincent Reformed Church.

 

Good luck
