From: Lwbs@aol.com
Dear Skinner Kinsmen:
For a research paper on the influence of Americans in the SA Independence Wars, I am looking for information on Captain Joseph Skinner. Captain Skinner was a know privateer during the War of 1812 as Commander of the war ship "Governor Tompkin" capturing the ship "Wereid", sold in New York for 270,00 dollars . . . Captain Skinner later was the Comodore of the flotilla of two 850 tons patriot warships built in the East River Shipyards that left NY port on September 9, 1818 bound for the port of Buenos Aires, Argentina.
I need all the information I can get on Captain Skinner.
Many thanks

Subject: Another relative

From: "Bonnie Spalding" <bon@dmi.net>

I finally got brave enough to wade into the deep and trepid waters of family research on the internet. And I found you. Ann/Anne Skinner born about 1475 in Reigate, Surrey, England married Sir Knight Bat(?) Henry Wyatt/Wyott about 1500, he was born about 1460 of Allington, Kent, England; died 10 March 1537, same place. Had children: Sir Henry Wyatt, born abt 1500; Margaret Fransje Wyatt b 1502/1514; Sir Knight Thomas Wyatt, born abt 1503; and Mary Wyatt born abt 1509. Sir Knight Thomas Wyatt is my direct line to Ann/Anne Skinner and Sir Henry Wyatt/Wyott. Beyond having the names of her parents: John Skinner born abt 1449 of Surrey England and that he had a wife, I draw a blank.

Do you have any information this far back? Or can you tell me where to search?
I'm not in any hurry. Thanks, Bonnie bon @dmi.net

Subject: Mariah J. Skinner
Date: 26 Feb 2000
From: "Susan M. Berry" <sberry@nfo.edu>
I'm trying to locate information on my great-great grandmother (and mystery woman), Mariah J. Skinner. According to census reports, Mariah was born in either Alabama or Mississippi ca. 1822. She married John W. Fancher, Jr., in Noxubee County, Mississippi, on 19 May 1842, but later they lived in Union Parish, Louisisana. Circumstantial evidence suggests that Mariah was closely related both to Caroline Frances Skinner Youngblood and also to Morris Skinner, although no one has yet figured exactly what the relationship was. We do know that all three were in Noxubee County in the mid-1840s, and apparently moved together to Louisiana. Mariah and John Fancher, Caroline and Abraham Youngblood, and Morris and Mary Skinner are shown living near each other in the 1850 U.S. census for Union Parish, Louisiana. I am descended through Mariah's daughter Mary Elizabeth (Mollie) Fancher, born in 1854, who married William Thomas Morton. Mariah and husband John Fancher, Jr., both died during the Civil War years, and daughter Mollie and her two brothers were apparently raised by a Fancher uncle. I am in touch with several of Caroline Skinner Youngblood's descendants, who are equally interested in solving the mystery of Mariah. Can anyone help?

Subject: Maine conection
Date: 24 Feb 2000
From: "Bill" <double@mint.net>
Hello There,
Am sending along a small amount of information which may help some people out.

My Great Grandfather was William Skinner, a Civil War Navy Veteran who was enlisted under the name William Munovan. I'm not sure of the spelling. He was in the Queen's Navy and jumped ship in Boston to join the Union Navy. He said the captain of the Canadian ship was brutal, and that he feared for his life, which might explain why he chose to join the navy of a country at war. He is buried in Millinocket Maine where he died in 1918. He had many children, but the only son to live to have a son was my Grandfather, Edward M. Skinner. I, of course, was named after my father who was named after his Grandfather. My father was born in Maine in 1911. I was born in Maine in 1949. I do not know the name of my great grandmother, but my paternal grandmother was a Guiggey from New Brunswick, Canada. She died in 1961, and my grandfather in 1970. Both are buried in Millinocket, Maine.


I hope this sparse information in of some help to somebody.

I received this reply from Roland Caen while looking for Skinner in Jersey. I am no relation to this Skinner but Roland may be able to help you;
Hello Paul, Afraid I can be of no help, I see your man quoted in Balleine's History of Jersey, but can find no other reference to the namd SKINNER in the books I have. Apart from him the name rings a bell in the Regt of the Indian Army which used to be called SKINNER'S HORSE....(any connection ?)
.........Roland in Calgary, Canada
Hope this helps you.
Yours 'Aye,

Sorry if this is a repeat message to you. It looks similar to what you noted in your query..Also, I am interested in anything you have on the Skinner family who came to Alabama, to compare to and add to my info! Thanks! Kathleen ktdexcel@frontiernet.net
The Skinners and Hollands intermarried twice. Three Skinner brothers, EMMANUEL, SAMSON, AND CORDIE came to the U.S. form England before the Revolutionary War and settled in Virginia. Emmanuel was a Baptist Preacher. After the war, because Virginia had adapted a "state religion" like that in England amd the Baptist Preachers were persecuted there by putting them in jail, Emmanuel left Virginia and settled in what was then called Tennessee County, North Carolina. The area is now known as Robertson County, Tennessee. There were also two Skinner girls that married Hollands, one was DANIEL and one was WILEY.
It is listed in deed book that Emmanuel bought 195 acres and he gave 2 acres of that land for a Baptist Church to be built, and ground for a church cemetary. The deed listed the beliefs of Baptists (the same as it is today-noted 1931-1935-) and said that if the church strayed from those beliefs, the land was to be returned to his family. He stated also that the church could get drinking water from his well and baptize in his creek.
Church records showed that the first house was a crude log house but later was a frame building, then later a brick house. A plaque there shows him as pastor from 1802-?

Subject: George Skinner

From: cath <cmsalway@ains.net.au>
Hi, to all fellow Skinners,
I have just found this site and would like to add my family to it.
So far I have traced my family back to George Skinner b:1796/7 at Ash Priors, Somerset, England. He was a doctor and practiced in Bath, England; married Jane Elizabeth Skinner (I believe his cousin). They had seven children that I know of:
George Henry 1824-1824, (Dr)George Robert 1825-1856, Jane Maria 1827-1870, Henry 1830-1904, Charles Edward 1832-1838, (Dr)William 1833-1908 and Jane Elizabeth ?-1838.

George died in 1872 and is buried either at Lansdown cemetry or Bishops Lydeard...I cannot find confirmation of his parents, his marriage or his death.His parents may have been John Skinner and Betty(Elizabeth) Joyce...but cannot prove it.

I am descended from Henry(1830-1904). He married Anna Jenkins in 1863 in Monksilvera, arrived in Brisbane (Australia) around 1864.
If anyone feels they have any information, or if I can help anyone with anything I would love to hear from you.

Subject: Alvin Joseph Skinner

From: andrea bortner <aconsult@pacbell.net>
I have been trying to connect myself with Alvin J. Skinner. I do not have birth or death records currently but was told that he died in OH sometime between 1900 and 1930. He was married to Susanna (sp) Skinner (Bortner) previously living in Albion, Ind. in the mid to late 1800's. I also have a picture of Lucy Skinner in the old family records. I do not know if my Lucy was a relative of Wm. Parkinson Skinner and Emeline Gregg. I had hoped that some of the Skinner info. would help me in researching my part of the Bortner family. Can anyone help? Sincerely,
Michael Bortner
