I saw that you found the info about Thadeus Griffith moving to NJ; I think your hunch that it might be a brother is a good one. Do you have the marriage record of Eli Griffith to Jane Susannah Sellers in 1829? They had a Mary J Sellers 30 living with them in 1850. It looks like Jane and Mary were children of Robert B Sellers and Jane Yarneall. Eli Jane Griffith are buried at Woodland Cemetery in Phila. Eli died October 1854; Mary Jane in 1871 and Jane in 1889.

I am guessing that somehow your Eli Griffith Sellers fits into this family and is related to Robert B Sellers.
