I received the following obit for Malinda Sellers Moody Stone today
extracted from the Greenville Advocate by Mary Collins.  I hope this will
make the connection to Wm Sellers from there.  They married in 1808 and she
was born in 1810.

"Malinda Stone was born in Henderson County, Kentucky, July 17, 1810 and
died near Mulberry Grove, Bond County, Illinois, February 15, 1876, aged
sixty-six years, six months and nineteen days.  In 1827 she married Richard
Moody, soon after they moved from Pope County, Illinois to Bond County,
Illinois, settled near Greenville.  In 1835, she was left a widow, with
several children.  On July 20, 1837 she married James Stone, who survives
her.", p. 19-20

Hi Marie and Frank. I just wanted to send you some tid bits of information that I found about the Sellers of Bond County.
 The Greenville Advocate News. March 2, 1865.
This was given the preferred position on the front page and down at the bottom was a story of a fatal stabbing between Leonard Sellers of
Bond County and Benjamin Housen of Greenville, generally known as "Tennessee." They got into a fistic combat and at the conclusion
Housen said he had whipped Sellers and wanted to whip the old man's nephew, Leonard Sellers and could do so. Sellers kept stepping back
and Housen kept following him up threateningly until in self defense Sellers fired. Housen placed both hands over the wound which was near
the pit of the stomach and stood a second or two, turned, walked a few steps and fell on the steps of Hankins Saloon, where he died in five
minutes. At the preliminary trial held in Vandalia, Sellers was held for homicide. His attorneys, Samuel Stevenson and Tevis Greathouse secured
a writ of habeas corpus, He was admitted to bail in the sum of $2000.00 for his appearance at the next term of the court.

Housen said he had whipped Sellers and wanted to whip the old man's nephew, Leonard Sellers and could do so. Sellers kept stepping back and Housen kept following him up threateningly until in self defense Sellers fired.
Housen placed both hands over the wound which was near the pit of the stomach and stood a second or two, turned, walked a few steps and fell on the steps of Hankins Saloon, where he died in five minutes.
At the preliminary trial held in Vandalia, Sellers was held for homicide. His attorneys, Samuel Stevenson and Tevis Greathouse secured a writ of habeas corpus, He was admitted to bail in the sum of $2000.00 for his appearance at the next term of the court.
