RAY, I haven't thanked you directly for all the documents you have shared with us. It is much appreciated. This part of family couldn't have been proven without this info you shared.
 
I am marie sellers hollinger, with the SELLERS discussion group and web pages.
Our Georgia Fletcher is the one that shared the census, etc with you on this family back to TN.
 
Now, I'm not done posting/filing all your info yet, but, I see some info we need and perhaps you could get it for us, as I believe you said you still live there?  If not, advise.
 
Illinois has an 1855 state census which should list our Sanford Sellers. it may not list his wife or kids names , but should show them and their ages.
I would like to have a copy of this. Have not been able to prove his wife, when married, or what happened to her and kids after he died. So, can't find her on an 1860 census. Did Not see them in Illinois deaths either. She may have returned to her family?
I usually try the local Genealogy society, maybe at library, they are great on these records. Phone ahead for hours etc.
If you have ANY info on his family, we need, to follow up on his kids, esp males.
 
There was a will of Nancy Sellers 1880, do you have a copy of this? might tell where any living kids or heirs are. Get Probate pages also, very important. I have numbers, if you don't already have. =
FILE# NAME DEATH DATE EXECUTOR PAGE
2551 SELLERS Nancy 15 Mar 1880 Richard Boston 260
Copies may be obtained by applying to the Circuit Court Clerk, Morgan County Courthouse, Jacksonville IL 62650. A few years ago the cost was $3.00. One can also request the Petition for Letters of Administration for $1.00.
The petition usually lists surviving heirs and date of death. When requesting copies, please give Book A, Executors Bond Book, Name of Decedent, Executors and File number as listed.

Genealogy society may not have this. Clerk of Court may have? phone ahead for correct office.

Can you help us a little further, with above info?  Advise and thank you for sharing and caring. marie, iowa

Hello MARIE,
 
Nice to meet you, I have requested a copy of the 1855 state cenus from the state of ILLinois.  When I receive the info, I will pass it on to you.  I did look on the federal cenus and seen that there was a S. Sellers mention in Lynnville Morgan County, Illinois but you may already have this information.   I seen that Nancy Sellers had a will listed and did list a death certificate, I am going to get both of them but going to call and see if I can do over the phone, or in person either way, will get you the copys.   
 
I have several other items in the Bible, which include items that were made but little things and not sure if at the point you would be interested in them or not.   I do have a valentine made in the Bilbe with hair breaded around the heart. 
 
I have in hand two letters written about williamson Sellers,from CSA. would you like copys of both, I know you have one copy, just not sure which one.  They say the same thing but they were required to make to copys of each.
 
I am trying to fill the whole in my family tree, Zeffe, or Zeiffe, was my great grandma, and I have found census, of her living with Nancy SELLERS,  I believe this is her mother, but lost after that.  Not sure if she remarried, where she is buried or what. If you have any listing about her, or anything else, about husband/s thats  where I am.  Georgia believed she was married to a Melvin Sellers for a little while but no listing in the census, anyway thanks very much, for all your hard work, and nice meeting you.

Georgia ask that I look for Sellers living in the Morgan county area, I work in the local school and when school lets out this summer, which is in two weeks, I will have more time to conduct the search.   Any other way I can help, please let me know.

Hello MARIE,
 
Nice to meet you, I have requested a copy of the 1855 state cenus from the state of ILLinois.  When I receive the info, I will pass it on to you.  Appreciate.  I did look on the federal cenus and seen that there was a S. Sellers mention in Lynnville Morgan County, Illinois but you may already have this information.   Very Possible.  I seen that Nancy Sellers had a will listed and did list a death certificate, I am going to get both of them but going to call and see if I can do over the phone, or in person either way, will get you the copys.     Good, hope it has info. 
 
I have several other items in the Bible, which include items that were made but little things and not sure if at the point you would be interested in them or not.   I do have a valentine made in the Bilbe with hair breaded around the heart.   I would frame and hang that! Precious. 
 
I have in hand two letters written about williamson Sellers,from CSA. would you like copys of both, I know you have one copy, just not sure which one.  They say the same thing but they were required to make to copys of each.  If no new info, one we have is probably sufficient. 
 
I am trying to fill the whole in my family tree, Zeffe, or Zeiffe, was my great grandma, and I have found census, of her living with Nancy SELLERS,  I believe this is her mother, but lost after that.  Not sure if she remarried, where she is buried or what. If you have any listing about her, or anything else, about husband/s thats  where I am.  I show Nancy died May 1904, Morgan Co., Il?  was that in bible? don't see in Il deaths.  I didn't find her husband Wm Stines/Stynes death.   Georgia believed she was married to a Melvin Sellers for a little while but no listing in the census, anyway thanks very much, for all your hard work, and nice meeting you.  Your bible states Melvin as father. Haven't proven if same as Florida/Ms SELLERS, That one was born in NC, so doesn't sound too hopeful. Melvin could be a middle name , then hard to prove! Didn't see in TX civil war or TX deaths or IL deaths.

I would like to know who bought Sanford Sellers cemetery plot in East Waverly Cem. Maybe his wife and her name shown?
