- Subject: Parents of Elisha Skinner, born about 1815 in
- Date: 29 Sep 2000
- From: "ssoper" <firstname.lastname@example.org>
- I'm trying my query once again. I'm searching for the parents
of Elisha Skinner, born about 1815 in NY; occupation was surveyor.
He married Abigail Peckham in 1835 in Holmes County, Ohio. They
later moved to Appannoose County, Iowa. I have found where Dr.
Elisha Skinner and his wife Sarah lived in Holmes County, Ohio
during the same period of time that my Elisha married Abigail in
Holmes County, Ohio. I think this is too close to be a
coincidence. I've never found any children listed for Dr. Elisha
Skinner & Sarah Loomis, but believe they were the parents of
my Elisha. Does anyone have any information on the family of Dr.
Elisha & Sarah Loomis?

- Myself and some of my family were talking about the origin of
the Skinners that have lived in Kenilworth, Warwickshire England.
In the conversation my uncle told me of article that he had read
recently. Basically this article states that the king of England
in the early part of the 14th century frequently visited
Kenilworth castle on his travels. On one stay he had a sexual
affair with a village girl. She was married to a Skinner, she fell
pregnant soon after this affair. It was suggested that the baby
may have been the son of the king, however, it was brought up as a
skinner. I wanted to know whether you had ever read an article
like this because I question the truth behind it.

- Hi all you Skinners
- I am now looking for all Skinners from Mechlenburg County,
North Carolina from 1830-1840-1850 census. I am particularly
interested in the following names found. William Henry, Jeremiah,
Lorenzo D. Charles, Mary. My family from Lorenzo m. a Delilia
Phifer and Mary Skinner married Peter Phifer. I believe that Mary
is the sister of my Lorenzo. Peter is the brother of Delilia. I
believe that Jeremiah is the older brother by 2-3 years he came to
Mechlenburg first and then William Henry Skinner, with I believe
Lorenzo at 17 years old. I found a William Henry Skinner I believe
to be his brother.
- I believe and it is pretty conclusive that any Skinners in the
county at this time is all belonging to one family. If you have
info or can connect to any of these Skinners would you please
contact me. AT SPritch209@aol.com thank you.

- I just finished looking over Marion Turk's book "The Quiet

she seemed to have her doubts about the Channel Island origins of
Richard. She wasn't sure if the family should have been included.
But what caught my attention was the mention that the ship, The
Philip, stopped in New York and Virginia before arriving in
Elizabethtown, NJ. Could our Richard have come from one of those 2
places? I ask because no one has been very forthcoming about the
Philip and any documents associated with it; no record of
Richard's birth in Jersey; no record in Hampton, England that I

sort of history. I would appreciate any thoughts, verifications,
