I don't have 1880 Colorado - hardly anything on Colorado-
I do have Texas SELLERS - will check their 1880 census -
I don't have Hyatt's names on index -
On the James M. Doke that appears to have dies in Vernon Co, Mo - it
shows Box 4 - Packet 16 (probably pertains to will/docket/papers - don't
think I have anything else on Vernon Co -

WHERE did the COLORADO info come from - more pictures?letters?
or a child at a LATER date?

The front on this says: M L Sellers. On the back it says: slip the card
out an see the old girl. Jn A. Sellers. This must be Angelina and
grandbaby. I had never looked at these out of the case so has been a real
revelation. I have to chuckle because from the census you sent it appears
she had a different name each time the census happened. Anglina, Annie &
Mariah. Mariah must be her middle name as the bible says Angelina M.
Angelina was my gggma Orra's only sister.
You have opened up a whole new line for me and I really appreciate it.

Here it is again without the oval frame. On the back it says: J. A.
Sellers 19yrs Old
Aug 3 1887 which is the date the picture was taken I would imagine. James
A. was 11 in 1870 according to what I read on the sheets you sent so this
has to be James.

Got you a little excited, Huh! Are these Sellers part of your family? I
have only been at this about a month trying to get all this "stuff", and
there are boxes so who knows what I will find, archived and then decided to
get it on the computer. What a wonderful thing the internet is. Have tied
Angelina's mother Lucretia Chaney Doke in with 2 others that had done
segments of the history back to England. I wouldn't even know where to
start to do something like that.
I have more pictures but they are not marked so don't know who they are
however they are in the same album. Most of these are tintypes I think they

Now lets see if Angelina or Annie or Mariah or Mary, whatever she wants to
call herself today likes flying in cyberspace.
I think this is the last pix that I have a positive ID for. This has been
so much fun.

You do whatever you want. Just glad I can be a small part of someones Heritage.
>I WANT to work on this MARTIN SELLERS, probably father of JOHN L.
Somewhere in my digging there was mention of half-sister (brother). Can't
find it right now but am wondering in A.B. Hyatt's wife Elizabeth could have
been married previously to a Sellers or maybe Martin is a brother. Awfully
close knit for just casual acquaintances. Time will tell.
Sorry!! I've been so busy that I stuck this in my Lookup file. I thought
had answered, but as busy as I've been (I'm a grad student at our local
college) I wouldn't be surprised if I simply forgot about it. Really didn't
Anyway, here's the information:
1840 Coles county:
Males: 20-30 = 1
60-70 = 1
Females: 60-70 = 1
Is it possible this James and his wife could have died in Coles county?
you think they did, I'll check for a cemetery record.
1850 Edgar County:
1262 - Doke, James M. - 35 - IN - Martin - farm - 2200
Lucretia - 22 - KY - Pulaski
Orra E.(f) - 10 - IL - Edgar
Nelson J. - 8 - IL - Edgar
Angeline - 6 - IL - Edgar
Oscar - 2 - IL - Edgar
Taylor, Mary E. - 22 - IL - Edgar [no occupation listed, but could
have been a servant]
This looks to be his second marriage, as Lucretia would have been too
to have been the mother of all but Oscar.
If you know they died in Edgar county, I would you suggest you write
Edgar County Genealogical Society. They have a master list (not yet
published) of all the cemeteries and could do a look-up for you. I'd send a
you send your request. However, if you think they died in Coles county, let
me know and I'll check further.
As for the 1850 census, could the "Ind Prec" be Indiana? I don't
there is a Coles or Cole county in Indiana, but it would be worth checking
into if that would help you locate the family.
Let me know if I can be of any further help.
Again, I'm sorry for the delay in writing back. I really didn't mean
take so long in getting back to you.
WANDA - haven't written, cause I don't know anything new-
still sitting here trying to get my SONS time to make pictures smaller
and post - they are precious!
He did come out and find that we had to download a newer program to make
smaller than the one I had on my machine-
I have an unmarried 41 yr old son - teaches computer classes and nite
classes and being unmarried , you can quess his time schedule - NEXT
WEEK, i am sure -
BUT, I did read 1900/1920 COLORADO index on SELLERS (NO soundex for
1910, which we could read the county info IF we find the county )
NO JAMES A SELLERS -
I pulled out the 1910 TEXAS census to read - seems I did read, but maybe
just for JOHN L. SELLERS - will reread -
I'm not too sure I maybe should read 1910/20 OREGON!
DON't believe any DOKE/SELLERS conection until MO-
have NOT found MARTIN SELLERS yet (so many spellings on census!)
hope we receive that civil war file - might be an answer!
I did go back to COLES/EDGAR CO, ILL and you probably have this, I
wasn't going to send, but,=
I don't usually get back in touch, until NEW info - but, since I have
the files of pictures on my screen, I think of you more often!
I many times do post info to the counties, I am working on or have read-
at the SELLERS FAMILY GENEALOGY PAGE= (not FANCY, just info)
http://www.netins.net/showcase/sellerfamily (very long index)
Due to family health problems I have not had any time for more research
will get back at it soon, I hope.

This is my group. Lucretia was born in 1822 so they must have
put the year
instead of her age. There is another son John born in 1853. Lucretia &
James were married in Cole Cnty, ILL. she being the daughter of Jackson Chaney.
I have subscribed to the list and am saving all postings there for future
research. The info has come in so fast on many of my lines that have not
been able to keep up with my own postings. Thank you for thinking of me and
will certainly let you know when & if I find anything.
