TODD, I'll post what little we have in WHITMAN CO, WA - MOST of my info ONLY goes to 1920, THEN, we need our SELLERS families to FIND us, so they will SHARE with us.

USE - USGENWEB - go to states, go to counties and ASK for lookups where we need info. PLEASE send a copy to me/SELLERS-L. and we will post this info to our SELLERS county/state pages. THEN, others can find us and IF THEY share, it works like a circle.

WE don't have much WISCONSIN info - NEED

IF CLINTON G. SELLERS was born in 1851 WISCONSIN, and we DON'T know when he came to IOWA , but he has KIDS born here in 1870's.
YOU may be able to find him on an 1860/1870 census, but, probably living with parents. THAT IS WHY WE NEED a copy of his OBIT, WE WOULD know WHAT/WHERE to check for INFO.

WHEN did they go to WASHINGTON STATE? = where any child born?

has obit from Palouse paper- Kenneth Rust Don't know year yet ( mom thought 1905 or 1907) died during depression was killed in
Mt. was thrown from train after being robbed -Veva Norma Rust Grady ( my grand mother) married Glen Grady of Palouse Wa.
Father John Henry Grady Mother Emma French McCullough Grady very wealthy- Veva was born 20 July 1908  Palouse (same

more info than I do my mom checked) other tid bits My mom has documents with names Warren, Ray and Ira Sellers 1951(
possible brothers of Clinton) they were involved in settling a will or something involving Clara acquiring an Oil well mom has
picture of them as well as numerous other Sellers and Rusts( She mentioned that the picture of Frederick -Clara Brother gave the
impression that he was a very well to do man possible doctor or lawyer his clothing was of a better quality than what you would
expect from the average persons best)

TODD, WE probably will end up needing a 1920 WA census, which I don't
think we have. BUT, in 1900 they probably aren't to WA yet.

The children's names match with what my mom has, she has pictures of
all of the girls in family around 1897. Her sister who passed away this last
summer has pictures of all the boys mom is trying to get a copy of them she
also has picture of Clinton and Christina .
The gentleman I talked of  in last e-mail only had info on Abbies husbands
family from ME. I posted queries on Wisconsin sites looking for info on
Clintons past no responses yet, hoping he lived there during a census year
other wise he may have only lived there a short period of time.
Also posted queries on sites in Whitman County Wa. for Sellers info. Still
planning on visiting there sometime soon this spring are there certain
records that the Whitman County Court House should have that are more
valuable than others to look for first?
Todd Idaho

I found the maiden name of Christina Marie Sellers is Patterson
the sister in law from 1880 census Abbie ( Feb 9,1866 no location given) was
a Patterson Married George S. Whitmore 18 June 1887
Father Randal Patterson 11/28/69 mother Hannah 11/28/70 I have a gentleman
who is going to e-mail back with more details
Todd

TODD, I would say what we need most is the town where he was born. An obit may
show. WW1 registration may show. IF WA has an 1925 census, this would show his
parents name. A death certificate may show. Then we could do a search on his dad
and try and find him. Thanks for sharing, marie, iowa

There probably is an immigration ship for George SELLERS. But, if you can find a census reading, you'll know where born and maybe help trace.
IF ANY OF OUR SELLERS have census or info, PLEASE SEND.

NEED to look up when WI was made - wonder if they would have been listed in MI? before. Or where? PA? If find anything, will send.
Thanks for sharing, marie, iowa

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?
Todd

TODD, Thanks,
I don't know if there is a connection between CHIPPEWA CO, MI and CHIPPEWA CO, WI?

Great news! Now if we can find someone with 1870 census. Also there are the
names of Abel, Nelson, and Malcom owning property in Wisconsin same time
frame in Chippewa and Taylor Counties. You can find this info. on the
Wisconsin resource page at Rootsweb.com states/counties for anyone
interested in finding names of property owners in Wisconsin.  George must be
Clinton G. Sellers, and John must not be born yet?
Todd

TODD, Yes, it is. Maybe a brother of Georges? AND they appear to be all living in same house! Someone sent me this extraction, I didn't see that census on page till you sent. Thanks. marie, iowa

id you actually see this info. or did some one have a copy they gave you
info. from. I would like to see actual copy it is hard to tell what the
numbers are as far as ages I think George is 9 not 7 which would match what
the 1880 census shows for Clinton.
e-mail me at tmdrgehring@earthlink.net
Todd


TODD, Yes, it does look more like a 9 than 7. and Yes, I think its going to take a copy of the original to try and see better. The copy on the web is what I read from the second time and its dark toward the bottom of the page and very hard to read. marie, iowa

TODD, believe this came from a soundex film of mine, which I can't copy
from.
BUT, I believe some of the 1900 census are on line on ancestry.com OR try
Boyd Co, NE us genweb page. Do a search on ancestry.com and see if free or
if
listed. IF listed I can copy/paste that info to you.= I need the page
number,
if no index.

I'm sure others would be interested in your pictures. Can you scan and send
to ME - can't send directly thro rootsweb, but, we can put on your page and
others can find.

doesn't show other members of family and I don't think? sex is indicated,

the relationship., which could be sister in law or son in law.

NO JESSIE and NO WRIGHT SELLERS listed on soundex - could be another
spelling.
could be picked up under another family name. or could have been missed.
marie, iowa



Does any one have a copy or soundex of the 1910 census of Whitman County
or an idea where I can find a place to view one. I'm still looking for
any info. on the Sellers Rust Grady and Comstock families of Palouse Wa.
