"Seeking information of FREDERICK WILHELM SELL & wife LAURA, b.Prussia. Emigrated to Milwaukee in 1855. Frederick was a shoemaker ..."
I've indexed multiple death notices from multiple German language papers of the day for a Laura Sell and a Friedrich W. Sell. Also obscure U.S. Postal service notices for a shoemaker named Friedrich Sell who received letters postmarked from Treptow in 1865. There are about 125 occurrences of the name in the current index.
