   Glenda --
Perhaps you know if Larken Sellers in the 1820 census of Robertson
County, TN
was related to Howell Sellers?  They were separate families in that
census.
Larken had with him a female 16 to 26 years of age, and one boy under 10
years of age.  Was Howell Sellers wife's name Margaret Conner?
Frank Sellers

The Margaret Conners is the only reference wife of HOWELL SELLERS, I have
seen. In the DAR data books. Example Revolutionary War Soldiers, buried
in
Illinois.
In their Wills Howell wrote and signed his Will, Margaret as his
Executrix
signs by her mark. In her Will she signs with a mark.
Until I found these Wills I had no idea that they had so many children.
In the Illinois Land Sales it shows a LARKIN SELLERS as Purchaser on
12/10/1851, Federal Land Sale #261190, Co #41- 80 acres.

I do not understand statements of Maria of Iowa.

I am descendant of Jane SELLERS NIGHSWONGER. I only knew of Jane and her
sister Cynthia SELLERS BUFFINGTON. I have copy of Wichita KS DAR article
with
their pictures as "Real Daughters on the American Revolution".
This spring I found Howells and Margarets Wills in Pittsfield IL Pike
County
courthouse. I was truly excited ! Howell lists his 14 children. I sent a
got
copies of his land in Sangamon Co. He describes his Pike Co. land in his
will.
My ggrandfather Abraham NIGHSWONGER son of Reason and Susan BUFFINGTON
NIGHSWONGER worked with his brother Soloman, farming and on Steamboats on
the
IL River. I have a young picture of Abraham taken in Henry, IL on the
River
He and Jane lived near here in the Sparland area. They then moved to

GLENDA and ALL - Where are HOWELL SELLERS kids in 1850/60?
Where is MARGARET SELLERS in 1850 - When/Where did she die?
Did several go to KS? I see a JOSIAH SELLERS in 1870 BUTLER CO, KS, but,
don't have the census on this family.
Evidently, we don't have these kids located? Where are any of them?
YES, Larkin SELLERS in 1850 Robertson Co, Tn and we have a Charles here
in 1840-But, 1850?
Don't understand why so Hard? Don't have the right place at the right
time?
Any Help Appreciated. marie, iowa
