My great great grandfather John Skinner came to East Palestine, OH in 1880 from New Castle upon Tyne, England but he had been born and raised somewhere in Scotland and I am trying to find out where. My Dad says he spoke with a thick Scottish brogue. I am fortunate to have a picture of him with my father, grandfather and great grandfather all together.
Would be interested in any info you may find on Skinners coming from Scotland. Here is what I just posted about myself and family on the Skinner board.

My g-grandfather's name is David Skinner. He married a Mary Louisa Jackson in Dunklin Co. MO in 1882. They had a daughter, Ollie Bell, born in 1892. Oral history has it he died when Ollie Bell was approximately three years old. That is the extent of the knowledge I have of him. I have been unable to find anything more. Do you think that you might be able to help me?

Descendents of John skinner from Braintree, England.
2 very good sources have almost completed my search, HOWEVER, there is a breakdown with information about NOAH SKINNER.
The skinner data base only includes 2 children for NOAH (1707)and wife MARY SCOTT.
A second source lists many more children, including my direct descendent, Ezekiel.
Does someone out there have more children for NOAH, son of Thomas(1680)?

John H. Skinner m Susannah Coaker
Date: 20 Nov 1998
From: Candace Gravelle cteal@dnc.net
Searching for documented children of John H. Skinner and Susannah Coaker, and also for documented children of John H. Skinner's parents who are thought to be Rev War Captain Isaac Skinner and Jane Jackson Skinner.

My Skinner line is from Isaac H. Skinner, born 1800, married to Mary Ann Harley (1806-1870), and who lived in Jackson County, GA., Newton County, GA, Coweta and Carroll Counties in Georgia, where they presumably both died between 1860-1870. They had the following children:

  • Francis Marion Skinner, born Dec 10, 1825 in GA
  • William Jasper Skinner, born Aug 31, 1827 in GA
  • Susan Elizabeth Skinner, born Dec 19, 1828 in GA
  • Lucy Ann Skinner, born Oct 11, 1831 in GA
  • John Newton Skinner, born Feb 20, 1834 in Henry County, GA
  • Nancy Martha R. Skinner, born Jan 24, 1837 in GA
  • Louisa Emily V. Skinner, born Aug 18, 1839 in Henry County, GA
  • Wylie W. Skinner, born Feb 9, 1842 in GA
  • Samuel P. Skinner, born Oct 25, 1844 in GA
  • James Thomas J. Skinner, born Dec 28, 1846 in GA
  • Isaac H. Skinner, born Jan 29, 1849 in GA
  • Andrew Jackson Skinner, born June 7, 1851 in Coweta County, GA
I am descended through Andrew Jackson Skinner who married Rebecca Ann McElroy, daughter of John B. McElroy and Elizabeth Ann Jones. This family and descendants lived in Carroll County, GA and Cleburne County, Alabama between 1850 and 1950's...

Some Skinner researchers of this line say that John H. Skinner who married Susannah Coaker were the parents of Isaac H. Skinner, but I have not found documentation of this. Would also like to know the names of Isaac H. Skinner's siblings and their families, as well as the siblings of John H. Skinner and Susannah Coaker.

Date: 5 Jan 2000
From: "nicola iggleden" <nicola.iggleden@care4free.net>
As I waded through all the Skinner interests your query caught my eye, a few coincidences I could not ignore! It may be merely that but I'll give you all the info I have. First, all my male Skinners were bootmakers or master shoemakers. My great-grandfather was William John Skinner born on 23.12 1894 in Marylebone,London, England. His parents were Joseph Skinner and Isabella Baillie. Joseph was a bootmaker.(he later had a shop in Kensington) he was born in Birkenhead,Cheshire on 23.11 1854 and died in 1907.

Joseph's father came from the Isle of Man but had moved to Liverpool where there were other Skinner families. Thomas had a bootmakers shop and employed several other men and boys. This line goes back to 1771 on the Isle of Man and all those Skinner males seem to have been boot or shoemakers! The other coincidence - going forward again to my grandfather William - he was later 'left on the doorstep' of a family called Halls in Hatfield Broad Oak, Essex - nobody seems to know the exact details of when or why but he never knew his parents or why they had seemingly abandoned him. It's one of those lovely family mysteries everyone likes to chew on once in a while!

That's all I have really except when we got Joseph's death certificate it was registered by his daughter,

Daisy Skinner.....daughter?! where did she come from.
Joseph had finally married Isabella in 1906 but sadly expired the following year!
There's so many questions to be answered here and for my mum's sake I'd love to solve the mystery of her Dad!

I have quite a bit of information on the Skinners in Liverpool - there are an awful lot of them. Ignore this waffle if it's no use to you but otherwise I'd be glad to assist in any way or would be pleased to receive any suggestions you may have for my research!

Happy New year!

All I can tell you about my ancestor, Richard, is that he arrived in Elizabethtown, NJ on August 1, 1665 aboard the Philip. He came over from the Isle of Jersey, one of the Channel Islands off the coast of France. He may have been there during the Cromwellian period and the Restoration of Charles the II. As to where we go from there is anybody's guess. I am trying to find out myself. Charles travelled from Scotland to Jersey, stopping at the Isle of Man and the Scillys off Cornwall. Also, a contingent of troops from Ireland came to Jersey after Charles arrived. A Captain Skinner informed the Govenor of Jersey, Sir George Carteret, of Charles the I beheading. Skinners are mostly a UK lot, ranging from the Skinner sept of the Clan Macgregor to gentry from Britian. Good luck and hope this helps

2. Catherine Skinner married to Caraway Oates
3. Isaiah Skinner
4. Ethatinda Skinner married to William Whedden
5. Margaret Skinner married to John Granthan
6. Dorcas Skinner married to Mozingo
7. John Skinner
My interest in Ethatinda who was married to William Whedden. I feel sure the spelling of William's last name should have been Whiddon. My GGGrandfather was William Whiddon. All of the info I have shows his wife's name as Sarah. A deed filed in Henry County, Alabama in 1841, selling land owned by Nathan Skinner, list heirs as:
1. Caraway Oates
2. William Whiddon
3. Isaiah Skinner
4. John Granthan
5. Dorcas Mozingo
I have been unable to establish who William Whiddon's parents were. He was
born abt 1793 is South Carolina as per early census of Henry Co. Al. He and
is family moved to Henry Co. between 1820-30.

Daughter Skinner,
Catherine Skinner married to Carraway Oates,

Ethatinda Skinner married to William Whedden,

Dorcas Skinner married to Mozingo and
John Skinner.
I am expecially interested in Ethatinda and William Whedden.
I am as positive as possible that they are my GGGrandparents. William Whiddon married Sarah Skinner either in South Carolina or Georgia before moving to Henry Co. Alabama between 1820 -30. Deeds in Henry Co. list Caraway Oates, William Whiddon, Isaiah Skinner,John Granthan and Dorcas Mozingo as heirs to Nathan Skinner. Deed dated 1841. I believe that Ethatinda was Sarah's middle name and the spelling of Whiddon was misread to be Whedden.

Dear Mr. Whiddon,

Your query of 9/15/98 caught my eye as I was searching the Skinner Family Assoc..


I doubt if I can be of help with your search but I will review my records and let you know.


You indicated you would share iformation if you have it, so I will ask about the John Skinner you list as a son of Nathan and Easter Skinner.


Do you have any details about him such as date and place of birth or whom he married? I notice he is not mentioned in the 1841 Will of Nathan.


My GGGrandfather was John B. Skinner and I am trying to prove who his parents were. One genealogist has suggested his parents were Nathan and Easter though I believe there is stronger evidence they were Benjamin Skinner Jr. and Esther Key (Skinner).

Any information will be greatly appreciated.

From: Richard Skinner <rms7n@virginia.edu>

I am looking for information about my gggrandfather, Joseph Churchill Skinner. I believe that he was born in Annapolis, NS in 1792. He entered the ministry and settled in Washdemoak Lake, NB. Family tradition says that our family fled Colchester, CT after the Revolution because of their Loyalist sympathies.
