[INDELAWA] Jacob Sellers & family

Hi list!

I'm looking for any ancestral information regarding Jacob Sellers buried in
Godlove Cemetery in Delaware Township. I'm looking for anything that might
reveal or even hint as to the names of Jacob's parents, the maiden name of his
wife, Lydia, and/or where he came from when he settled in Delaware Township in
Section 21 on August 25, 1834.

Jacob and wife, Lydia, are located in Delaware Township per the 1850 Census.
He's listed as age 62 and being born in Virginia. His son, John Sellers,
married Catherine Battrell on November 11, 1847. John and Catherine were living
next door in 1850. John was listed as age 27 and being born in Ohio. I believe
that Jacob's daughter, Eliza, married Abraham Godlove on December 17, 1840.
Eliza was also listed as living next door to John Sellers and Jacob Sellers on
the 1850 Census, was listed as age 27, and also being born in Ohio.

Both Jacob and son John are oddly listed with the last name of "Silvy" on the
1860 Census for Delaware Township.

Jacob's gravestone in Godlove Cemetery notes that he "Died in the 77th year of
his age", however, it doesn't list exactly when he died. I'd also like to learn
if there is a record of exactly when he died.

Any help regarding Jacob Sellers and the possible name(s) of his parents, the
maiden name of wife Lydia, and/or where they may have come from when they
settled in Delaware Township in 1834 would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

Michael Sellers
