WAYNIE - We have had a member working on this family and believe they
found his father to be a JOHN SYLVESTER SELLERS born in Sonestown, PA - I am
sending a copy to them also, in case they are not an active member now.
And they stated Stanton was born in Columbia Co, PA
and we have no info there - yet -
I believe if we had a 1900 NY census you should probably find him living with parents.
We have 1880 -
Your Library may have or can order one in - Check your local genealogy department - phone library for info.
PLEASE Send copy of First letter you receive to us-
