Notes

!.....Dawson, Al (11/96) aq135@@yfn.ysu.edu William Grant Cook, who wrote that Cooked-Book in WRHS Library (I've got a copy at home too) [produced myriad errors] ... today I compared his book with one I found on the shelves about the Skinner family, an allied branch. Sallie Marie Andrews Cook was my great-great-great grandmother ... she and daughter Susan Cleveland Cook Creighton are buried in same grave-site in Massillon, one I visited with Wooster buddy in 1993...her mother was Betsey Skinner, who married Solomon Andrews in 1819 in Claremont, N. H. .... W. G. Cook (a cousin of my great-grandmother, Margaret Ida Creighton Mason) has this, but all else, including Betsey's birth-date and place of birth all wrong...and more importantly, his tree for her ALL WRONG...now I've not done any verification of the Skinner material yet, but given the other flaws I found in WGC's book...he was a scoundrel, my grandfather Henry was right in not donating to the book! :) Betsey was descended from a Sergant Thomas Skinner who came to America from Chichester in England between 1649 and 1651 (he was born in 1617) ... Not able to copy it all down today, but Skinner settled in Malden, Mass and after two Abrahams...son and grandson...came Benjamin Skinner, born in Malden in 1727 and married in Woodstock, Conn. in 1750 or 51, one Elizabeth Lyon, dtr of Jacob and Mehetable (Bugbee) Lyon of West Woodstock, Conn. She was born 1731. They "removed" [as people often did in those days] to Wilbraham, Mass. He did around 1774, after producing nine kids, the last of whom was Baxter Skinner, who was baptised in Woodstock, Conn (must have removed more than once!) in 1772. Baxter Skinner married Miriam Prouty, dtr of Samuel and Miriam (Stevens) Prouty (born 1778) in 1797 in Langdon, New Hampshire. In the following year, Betsey was born there. So I have a lot of new lines to follow up!
