I am trying to find any info. on my GGGrandparents John G. Sell and Sylvia J. (Smith) Sell. John was born in Germany Nov. 1817 and died in Nebraska in abt. 1903. Sylvia was born in 1848, place unknown, and died Jan. 11, 1924 in Michigan.
They had 4 children, 3 of which lived.
Lincoln G. b.12/24/1869 at Berlamont, MI
Anna b. 02/18/1866
Minnie b. ?
The family moved to Custer county Nebraska in the mid to late 1880's.
I believe they are listed in the 1870 Van Buren county census in Columbia twnshp. John may be listed as "George" which may have been his middle name. If anyone has any info. or leads where I could do more searching please email me at

Thanks in advance
Joe K
