Howell/Howel SELLERS - Pension #S31357, South Carolina.  One card
shows he was on pension roll in Sangmon Co., IL - #7994, receiving
#30 annually, as of Mar 4, 1831.  He was a private in SC for nine
months.  His affidavit for pension, dated Oct 17, 1832, stated he
would be age 70 "next March".  He volunteered as a "militiaman"
on about May or June 1776 in the Edgefield Dist, SC militia.
He was ordered to fight Creek Indians in Georgia on a creek called
"Rocky Comfort".   Eight Indians were killed.  He was also in
other battles.

The file contains a letter from Frank NIGHSWONGER, attorney in
Wichita, Kansas, dated June 19, 1894, asking for a copy of pension
papers for his grandfather, Howell SELLERS.

TN,
how did they go overland to river travel?

??? Does anyone have any letters or family stories ? Glenda


       From: FRANK
            Sellersgen@aol.com

Larken (cq) Sellers is found in the 1820 census of Robertson Co., TN, 26 to
45 years old, living with him are one female age 16-26 and a boy under 10.

Howell Sellars (cq), b. 1762 in Chatham or Charlotte Co., NC, who said he was
originally from South Carolina, is found in the same Robertson Co., TN 1820
census.  (The same Howell of course is later in Pike Co., IL and was a
Revolutionary War veteran.)

Morgan and Pike today have some common border in west central Illinois, with
Scott County lying between them for many miles.  Pike and Sangamon were
created in 1821, and Morgan was carved out of Pike in 1823.  Has anyone
looked at land records for these names?  Howell Sellers made an 1830 purchase
of 80 ac. on Nov. 3, 1830.  The land was in what was then Menard County.
Howell Sellers said he resided at that time in Sangamon County, IL.
Sangamon, Morgan and Pike were adjacent counties with Sangamon the most
easterly and Morgan in the middle from 1825 to 1839.

These two men are of an age to be brothers?

                          The Howell Sellers referred to by Frank, is one in the
same. Howell Sellers of   Robertson Co. TN. purchased land in Sangamon County near
Petersburg and      New Salem Illinois, in 1830. Later in time, this became
Menard Co. Illinois.
                          Howell later sells this property, and buys land in Pike
County Illinois. The land     he purchased in Pike Co. Il. is described in his will.
While living in Sangamon      County, Howell made his formal application for pension (
Revolutionary War ),                           which was granted, and I have copies of.
