From "History of McLean County, Illinois" pp1173-1174:
"Anthony Sells, the father of our subject, and Benjamin Sells, the grandfather, were both natives of Virginia. The former emigrated to Indiana when a young man, where he remained a short time, and then came into Woodford County, this State (Illinois). There he married to Miss Mary Mundell, a native of Woodford Co. After their marriage the young people settled at Dixon, Illinois, whence they shortly afterward removed to Johnson County, Iowa. Anthony Sells being a miller by trade, put up a mill on the Iowa River, near Iowa City, which he operated for a number of years, and then pushed southwestward into Kansas, where he passed the remainder of his days. The mother had died while living in Johnson County, Iowa."
