George:

You mentioned David's brother George as living in Querida, Colorado in
1911 per David's Civil War file.  Yes, the file does mention that, but I
have never been able to find Querida listed on any map. (It wasn't me
who submitted the information about this George.)  I have found a George
Cellers listed on the 1900 Colorado Census for Custer Co., which is
where I have been told he died September 26, 1912, per death certicate
#6359A Custer Co. Colorado.  I am told by a descendant of his that he
was indeed David's brother.

If anyone has information about these people, I would appreciate being
advised.

LYNN,
HOW do you pronounce HUERFANO, CO, laying under CUSTER CO, CO?
I could NOT find QUERIDA, CO either-
BUT, I did NOT go ask Colorado for Old, abandoned towns?

 Crowther, James F.

 Dalton, John C., Bishop of Manassa, San Luis Stake, Colorado, was born at Parowan, Iron
 county, Utah, Jan. 9, 1857. He grew to manhood on the farm and ranch, and received a limited
 education in the district school. May 1, 1876, he married Hannah D., daughter of Jesse N. and
 Emma Smith. In December, 1878, he was called to accompany Pres. Silas S. Smith on an
 exploring mission through Arizona and northern New Mexico. He started on this mission the
 following April, returning in September. Soon after his return home, he was chosen a counselor in
 the Y. M. M. I. A. of the Ward. The year following he was called into the Stake presidency of
 the Y. M. M. I. A., laboring in that position until May, 1882. In February, 1882, he was directed
 by Apostle Erastus Snow to again accompany Pres. Silas S. Smith to the small colony of Saints
 in Colorado. May 17th he bade farewell to his relatives and friends, and, leaving the home of his
 childhood, started on a life's mission. On the 22nd of the following month he, with his traveling
 companion, A. F. McGregor, arrived in San Luis valley, where the Colorado Saints had
 established three small settlements. In October he was joined by his wife, and they together
 labored to build a home and fill the mission to which they had been called. He was ordained a
 Bishop by Apostles Brigham Young and Heber J. Grant and Pres. Silas S. Smith, and set apart
 to preside over the Manassa Ward in February, 1883, with Silas S. Smith, junior, and Samuel
 Sellers as his counselors. Some time afterward, Bro. Sellers moved away and [p.553] Martin
 Christensen took his place in the Bishopric. Side by side they have labored to build up the Ward.
 Bishop Dalton has represented the people in various State and county positions, and has always
 been zealous and energetic in the discharge of every duty enjoined upon him.

BENT COUNTY DEMOCRAT, Wednesday, February 1, 1922

PIONEER RESIDENT PASSED AWAY FRIDAY
Mrs. Elizabeth C. Winton Had Been Resident of the City for
Past Forty Years.

Mrs. Elizabeth Caroline Winton, one of our oldest residents, passed away
at the home of Mrs. Helen Butter shortly after midnight last Friday. She
had passed her 91st birthday three days previous and her death was due
to the usual infirmities of extreme age. Funeral services were held from
the First Presbyterian Church Sunday afternoon and were conducted by the
pastor, Reverend Duncan MacKenzie. Interment in the Las Animas Cemetery.

Elizabeth Caroline Dobbins was the daughter of [James]Sellers Dobbins and
was born in the state of Illinois on January 24, 1831. She was united in
marriage to John Winton, a veteran of the Civil War, who preceded her in
death a few years. Mrs. Winton was one of the pioneer residents of Las
Animas, coming to this city about the year 1882. She was accompanied by
her daughter, Alvira, who later passed away. She opened a boarding house
shortly after coming to this city and conducted it for some time, after
which she followed dressmaking as long as she was able to do this work.
She was a member of the First Presbyterian Church and was always faithful
in her church duties and attendance as long as she was able to go, and
only ceased her activities when the infirmities of old age made it
necessary.
During the forty years she lived in Las Animas, she was known as a woman
of thrift and industry, and her many old friends here will be saddened
to know that she has passed away.

southern state of ?.
married his second wife Susan Sellars daughterr of Harmon Sellars, Sept 17,
1880, they  emigrated to the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter-Day
Saints in Colorado. Stuffering untold hardshipps ans privations, also the
loss of some life, and  finally becoming dissatified, started back by team
throught New Mexico, and Texas, aventually reaching the old home  in MS.

John Franklin Collins, third son of James Simpson Collins ans Cyena
Blaylock, married second wife Mary C. Sellars daughter of Harmon Sellars
and Emma Caroline Barnes. They raised  a large family, principally in
Montgomery Co. MS.
John Franklin Collins was also very weakly, having one hand webbed and much
smaller than the other.

On Nov. 7, 1883 Sarah Louiza Keith was baptized into the "Mormon Church by
Elder W.R. Sellars of Manassa, Colorado.

I am still searching for info on Harmon Sellars and Emma Caroline Barnes
and Harmon's second wife Mary Elizabeth Moormand/Morman.

I read in something on Colorado that some white southerners traveling
together had to stop in Manassa, Colorado on there way to UT got caught in
a bad snow storm. They were going to join the Church of the Latter-Day
Saints.

In 1900-1910 Melvin Powell Sellers and Samuel Wesley Sellers lived in Grand
Junction, CO. I am trying to find any links to these brothers who still
reside in the area. I am descended from a third brother Amisa Erastus Sellers,
who moved to Grand Junction with them from Illinois. Amisa moved back to

and lived in the Grand Junction post office district. He said he had lived
in Grand Valley District for 31-32 years. At death of brother Amisa in

Many thanks for the 1920 Census Soundex from Colorado.  Looking under Mesa
County, I found the name of my g-g-uncle Samuel W. Sellers, 57 IL.  Samuel
Wesley Sellers was known as Wesley or Wes Sellers.   His birth certificate in
Montgomery Co., IL says Samuel Wesley Sellers was born March 1, 1860.  His
gravestone (see below) says b. 1861.

With help from Mesa County, CO Historical Society, I found out today that S.
W. Sellers married Minnie A. Corn under a license issued 15 June 1898.  Book
1, pg. 229, Certificate 692.

One of their children may not be recognized without correction.  The children
in the 1920 Soundex are:
Vaunda
Verda or Versa
Elma.

Our family records say Elma m. Leman Porter of Grand Junction, CO, and Vaunda
married A. R. Darling.

Wesley Sellers grave is in Row 11, Crown Point Cemetery, Mesa Co., outside
Grand Junction, CO.  Cemetery is also known as Veterans Crown Point Cemetery,
Appleton Cemetery, Loback District Cemetery, and Bethel Cemetery.  Stone is
inscribed S. Wesley Sellers, 1861-1946.  His wife, the former Minnie A. Corn
(1876-1912), is buried next to him.

In December 1915, Wesley Sellers wrote a letter to his hometown Hillsboro, IL
"Montgomery County News."  He said he had been a resident of the Grand Valley
District of Colorado (Grand Junction, CO area) for 31-32 years.  He told
readers he did some farming and was mostly involved in raising cattle.

DEATH WINS RACE WITH PHYSICIAN
     Mrs. S. W. Sellers Dies at Enoch's Lake--Cowboy Makes a Record Trip for
Physician--Death Just Before Doctor Came.
     Grim death won a fierce and hotly fought race last night, and
everything
that human power could do to save the life of a Grand Junction woman failed
in the face of the superhuman.  Mrs. Minnie Sellers, wife of S. W. Sellers,
a
well known ranchman residing 8 miles northeast of the city, died last night
at 11 o'clock at a cabin on Enoch's Lake, 26 miles southwest of Grand
Junction, the Grim Reaper winning a race with Dr. A.G. Taylor of this city
by
a few minutes.
     Lewis Goucher, a well known cattleman and a rider that has few equals
in
this section of the state, bore the news to this city.  Mrs. Sellers who has
been ill for several weeks showed signs of weakening and serious
complications set in yesterday afternoon.  Goucher was the only cowman in
the
vicinity and he was summoned to make the race to Grand Junction to get the
doctor.  Goucher rode like mad knowing a human life depended upon his speed.
He secured Dr. Taylor and the doctor started up horseback.  The race uphill
was a hard fought one and the horses were barely able to stand when the two
reached the cabin, where Mrs. Seller was dead.
     The body was brought here this morning from Pinon Mesa.  Funeral
arrangements have not been made.  Mrs. Sellers is survived by her husband
and
four children.  They are very well known here.

Published Oct. 27, 1946 in the Grand Junction, CO Daily Sentinel:

Obituary:  S. Wesley Sellers, Appleton Pioneer Dies in Oregon.
     Funeral services will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday at the Martin Chapel for
Samuel Wesley Sellers, 86, pioneer resident of the Appleton community, who
died Wednesday at The Dalles, Ore., where he had been visiting a daughter,
Mrs. A.R. Darling.  The Rev. C.A. Burkholder will officiate, and burial will
be in the Crown Point cemetery at Appleton.
     Mr. Sellers had been a patient in a hospital at The Dalles since last
March.  He went to Oregon a year and a half ago.  He made his home with
another daughter, Mrs. Leman Porter, 1224 Main for several years before
going
to Oregon.
     The deceased was born March 1, 1860, at Hillsborough, Ill., and he came
to the Grand Valley in 1880 at the age of 20.  He homesteaded a ranch in the
Appleton district and engaged in farming and cattle-raising until his
retirement several years ago
     In the early days of the valley, Mr. Sellers drove a freight wagon
between Grand Junction and Leadville.  At that time the road was on the
opposite side of the river between here and Dubuque, and Palisade, Clifton
and many other communities had not been founded.
     Mr. Sellers served as a member of the Grand Valley Irrigation board and
he was a member of the Farmers Union until his retirement.  He was a member
of the Christian Church.
     The deceased married Minnie Alberta Corn in 1893 at Grand Junction.
She
died in 1911.
     Surviving are three daughters, Mrs. Darling, The Dalles, Mrs. Clarence
F. Weckel, Los Angeles, Calif. and Mrs. Porter, Grand Junction, eight
grandchildren and several nieces and nephews.

Searching for history about Col. Sellers Mine of Leadville, Lake County,

in 1882 Leadville City Directory? Was he Col. Sellers? The manager of the
mine was William F. Patrick, engineers were Frederick Chapman, Fred E.
Bruen, and Michael Logue between 1883 and 1890. Three Sellers brothers
from Illinois went to Leadville in 1884, and I'm trying to find out if
there was a family connection to the Col. Sellers Mine.

The Col. Sellers was a mine in Summit County, CO. Does anyone know who
Col. Sellers was? Three brothers named Sellers left Illinois in 1883 for
Leadville, CO. Did they go to the Col. Sellers Mine in Leadville, or to
the Col. Sellers in Summit County, CO?
