Thank you for your time, Glenda Nighswonger
GLENDA - Will send thro our SELLERS discussion group - We have a

Perhaps you know if Larken Sellers in the 1820 census of Robertson
was related to Howell Sellers? They were separate families
Larken had with him a female 16 to 26 years of age, and one boy
years of age. Was Howell Sellers wife's name Margaret Conner?
The Margaret Conners is the only reference wife of HOWELL SELLERS,
seen. In the DAR data books. Example Revolutionary War Soldiers,
In their Wills Howell wrote and signed his Will, Margaret as his
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
12/10/1851, Federal Land Sale #261190, Co #41- 80 acres.
I do not understand statements of Maria of Iowa.

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,
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
in 1840-But, 1850?
Don't understand why so Hard? Don't have the right place at the right
