Bob- Here is a little more data which may or may not be of any help. Like Lisajean I suspected that there was a family connection between the Phillips and the Salls (or whatever there name actually was as it is different in every census and one transcriber had it as Gold). I did find that family in 1850 and in that case the census taker listed it as Suels. They were in Sumter Co, AL in 1850:
Event:       Census
Event Date:       1850
Event Place:       Sumter county, Sumter, Alabama, United States
Family Number:       1008
Line Number:       38
NARA Publication Number:       M432
NARA Roll Number:       15
Film Number:       442866
Digital Folder Number:       004191540
Image Number:       00133
       Household       Gender       Age       Birthplace
       James E Suels
M       32       South Carolina
       Frances S Suels
F       27       North Carolina
       Sarah A E Suels
F       7       Mississippi
       Mary E Suels        F       5       Mississippi
       Malisa Suels
F       4       Alabama
       William B Suels
M       0       North Carolina

In 1870 as Lisajean stated they were also listed in Neosha Co. MS. They were in Dwelling 69/Family 71. A few doors away in Dwlg 62/Fam. 64 was a Thomas Phillips age 50 born in Ireland. With Thomas was a Susan age 28 and a Susan 8 months old. Unless Pelina/Lucy/Lou married someon much yonger thanher I don't think this Thoma couod have been her father-in-law but could have been her bro-in-law.

The other possibility to look at might be in Sumter Co., AL. Since she was born there as was her oldest daughter there is a good chance that she and her husband were married in AL. The Seuls/Salls etcmight not havwe been related but could have been neighbors or friends in AL and then migrated together. That was a very common practice

Anyway, I hope this helps.
