Hi, I hope you are still doing this. The message was posted some time ago. I have found a few names that correspond with yours and was hoping you could tell me more. Here is what I have. Some of my info may be wrong. My sources did not know very much.
William Henry Skinner (1866-1931) m. Sarah Martha Polly (1862-1918). They had 2 sons Leonard ? (I heard a team of horses ran over him when he was very young) & Charles Walter Skinner - my great-great-grandfather. Born 01-15-1889 died 09-09-1961. He married Cynthia Ann Whipkey on 11-20-1912. They had 4 children Willie M. Skinner 12-25-1913 to 5-11-36 he was a very big man. Faye Marie Skinner 06-07-1918 to 07-27-1918. James Walter Skinner 09-18-1919 to 10-06-1991& Bessie Bell Skinner (my great grandmother) 03-14-1916 to 12-31-1991. I can bring the rest of the line down for you if you want. I am interested in knowing who William Henry's parents and grandparents are along w/siblings. He may have had a brother named Ed. I also have that he married Celia C. (probably your Ellia C.)
Charles Skinner his wife and children are all buried in Flynn Cemetery in Lincoln Cty? maybe Payne Cty. Oklahoma. Any info you have would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for your time. Also include your link to William Henry. My grandfather will be very interested to know that he has family out there.

Silas Skinner b. Jun 1863 in IN
Date: 17 Feb 1999 22:41:20 EST
From: Marla Timmons ABBYSPANO@aol.com
I am researching a Skinner family that may have been in Indiana in the 1860s, moved to Iowa and then south to Missouri (Clark County and Macon County). I have a Silas Skinner b. Jun 1863 in IN according to the 1900 Clark County Mo census. His parents were born in Ohio (father) and VA (mother). He is listed with his wife, Rosa b. Nov 1868 and sister in law Dollie Kildoo. Dollie and Rosa were born in IA and parents were born in KY (father) and Pennsylvania (mother). Dollie (or Dolla) Kildoo b. Nov 1885 married Marlin Skinner (his nickname was Poppy) b. 1886 and was born in MO according to the 1910 Clark County census. Marlin had a twin brother named Starlin.
Silas may be an older brother or cousin to Marlin Skinner. Marlin and Dollie moved to Idaho in 1915, where she died a couple of weeks later. They had one daughter, Opal b. 1907. Marlin then moved back to MO and subsequently remarried.
This has been a real dead end for me. I havent been able to connect them to any other Skinner families. Any help is very much appreciated.

Okay... I think I might have some information for you. My grandfather was Ethel Skinner. He married Goldie Klingsmith and they had 13 children. They lived in the Clark and Moberly area in Randolph county MO for a majority of their lives. I'm not sure where grandfather was born, but my mother says it was somewhere in that area. At any rate, according to family rumor, Ethel's father immigrated from Scotland to Kentucky where he changed his name to Skinner. It was believed he changed his name to his Boss' name, however, one Aunt of mine says he was a mule skinner in the coal mines and that is why he changed his name to Skinner. If this rumor is indeed a fact, as I believe it to be (I can't connect myself to any other skinner's) then this could be why you cannot find your family... If you know anything about any Skinner's in the Central MO are, please contact me at this e-mail address

I'm searching for the ancestors of Nathaniel Skinner. I have the following information which was obtained from "Jackson County West Virginia Past and Present 1990" as told by Capt. E. Clare Carpenter:
NATHANIEL SKINNER was born August 1826 in Monroe County, Ohio. On March 15, 1849 he married SARAH ANN WILGUS; born August 13, 1822 at Marietta, Ohio. They lived in Washington County, Ohio, and were the parents of: LOTT SKINNER, JAMES SKINNER, PERMILIA SKINNER, THOMAS SKINNER, MALOTHY SKINNER, ELSWORTH SKINNER, OLIVE SKINNER and MARY SKINNER. The house they lived in is still standing near where State Route 26 crosses Duck Creek. There sure were big catfish in Duck Creek then according to tales Grandpa told me. In the late 1870's the family moved to the Ravenswood District of Jackson County, West Virginia. Sarah Ann died March 3, 1890 and is buried at McGee Chapel near Sandyville. On February 11, 1890 Nathaniel married NANCY ADAMS. They were the parents of BESSIE SKINNER, born January 1, 1894. On December 4, 1902 he married Emily Chapman. He lived on Cherry Camp and is listed for taxes until 1906.
THOMAS JEFFERSON SKINNER was born 1856, Marietta, Ohio, died 1934 at Gay, West Virginia. On March 2, 1876 he married MINERVA JANE STANLEY, born March 20, 1853, died December 19, 1937.

Barbados Skinners - I am searching for my great great grandfather, Allen O'Neal Skinner who was born in Speightstown, Barbados in 1869. Long story but have found nothing for his or his family's whereabouts after Allen's last sibling was born in 1874 (at least I believe that to be the last sibling). His parents were Isaac Waldron(Walrond)Skinner and Eleanor Jane O'Neal. Family ties are from England and everyone may have returned there. Please let me know if you know of any info that may help to locate the above.Siblings were (all Skinner) Frank Leslie, Elise Goding, Marie Emilie Louise, ,Annie Walrond and Herbert Seymour.(First and middle names)
Thank you. Deborah L. Carlisle

I'm Darwin D. Davis, of Victoria, TX, looking for data on my Skinner ancestors who were b. in NC about 1801, resided and married in Butler Co. OH, and emigrated to southern IL in the 1850's. Specifically, I have Joshua Skinner (b. NC, 1801), married Cordelia Carter (b. 1811, OH), resided in Butler Co. OH in 1850. Cordelia and children (John B., b. 1835, Miles Dixon, b. 1837, Albert C., b. 1846, and 5 sisters) moved to Randolph Co., IL in the early 1850's. Joshua may have died in OH or very soon in IL. The family later moved to Marion Co. IL. Son Albert married Martha B. Telford and had sons John and Melvin and 8 sisters in Marion Co., IL...these are my ancestors. I'm looking for any info on these people, esp. their forebearers.
