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.

- From: "Susan
M. Berry" <email@example.com>
- 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?

- 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.

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
- 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

- 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.

in 1863 in Monksilvera, arrived in Brisbane (Australia) around

- 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,
