Skinner family from Kentucky and Indiana
I am looking for any information on Nellie Skinner who married Michael Daffron (Daffern) in Nelson County, Kentucky in 1818. Her brother is Elijah Skinner who later went to Greene County, Indiana. Her mother, Elizabeth, had married a second time to Charles McMannus and they were witness to the marriage. Michael and Nellie were in Dubois county, Indiana in 1820. In 1826 Michael was witness to the marriage of his sister in Jefferson county, Kentucky. After that, nothing. Trying to locate where they went after 1826. Also Giles Daffron married Nancy Skinner in Greene county, Indiana and they later moved to Knox county, Indiana. any information about this family would be greatly appreciated.

Searching for New Jersey Skinner Origins
My Skinner ancestors arrived in Cumberland (now Franklin) County, PA, from New Jersey in 1782. A biography of a family member published in 1905 includes the following information: Fourth generation of this line in America. John Skinner, progenitor, arrived from England and first settled in New Jersey.

He had the following known children: Archie, Anna, William, George, Phebe, and "others who names can't be determined". His son William was born on 15 Nov 1757, and married Martha Duncan.They moved to Cumberland County in 1782, and their son Stephan was born there in 1783. In searching New Jersey Skinner records, I have targeted the Rev. William Skinner family of Middlesex County. The family names (John, William, Stephen) are correct. I would appreciate information on this and other possible families in the Garden State. Sincerely, Ed Wevodau wevo@gateway.net

I found your web site, and you did a great job and put a lot of work into research.
I was adopted, so I didn't grow up knowing my bio. family. In the 1960's I found my mother and in 1976, I found my father.
My father's name was Clarence TITLOW, his father was Isaac and his mother was Georgia TIPTON.
Georgia's parents were Nathaniel TIPTON and Rebecca SKINNER.
I have Nathaniel's info. but not Rebecca's.
She died in the 1920's, but no parents are listed on her death certificate.
She last lived in Loudon Co., so I have been told. Also they lived in surounding Counties[Knox,Blount etc]
Does any of this sound like your Rebecca, dau.of Lorenzo and Delilia? I hope so.
Thanks for your time,

Subject: Ardessee / Andessee SKINNER / CRIPPEN (b. July 1835, PA)
Date: 27 Aug 1999
From: Elnore PARIS, Coldwater, MI
From 5 June 1900 Federal Census, Pasadena Township, Los Angeles, CA 5 Precinct, Supr Dist No. 6, Enum Dist No. 117, Sheet No. 3, (3144 or 5144? B) Howard Street, No of family 60, she is shown as wife of Myron A. CRIPPEN, (age 65) also shown with Hawley O. Crippen, Grandson (age 10).
The CRIPPEN family was very prominent in Branch County, MI, in 1835 thru 1900's. Myron and Ardessee were the parents of "The Mild Murderer" who killed his wife in London, England and was hanged in London for the crime. The murderer was Hawley Harvey Crippen, (1862-1910). There have been many books, plays, music, etc. written about Hawley, and his image is in the wax museum in London.
In one book, written by Tom Cullen, it is stated that Myron Crippen married a local girl Andresse Skinner, which I have been unable to find proof, and have searched diligently. The Branch County Early Marriages (1833-1875 and 1876-1887) have been published here.
In the local newspaper, The Courier, dated Nov. 21, 1910, pg 1, it states that Myron A. Crippen died Nov. 18th, in Los Angeles, CA caused by privations and worry over his son's fate AND that his wife died several years since.
I would appreciate an obit on both Myron & Ardessee, info on where they are buried in the Los Angeles area. Mostly I would like information about Ardessee's family, where born, father & mother, any siblings, etc. from that area, or in Pennsylvania.

I'm looking for any information on Robert Skinner, brother of James Skinner of Skinner's Horse fame in India.
We know Robert killed himself and his wife but he supposedly had a son, Thomas Skinner (or Jeremiah Thomas) who died in 1826. This Thomas married a Sophia Watts at Arcot, Southern India in 1823 and they had a son, Thomas William Skinner in 1824.
Unfortunately most of this is just hearsay!
Any concrete information would be appreciated!

Subject: Skinners are now spread far and wide around South Africa
Date: 25 Aug 1999
From: "piet" <sorgsa@lantic.net>
Hello there, all Skinners around the world. I am Pieter Retief Skinner from Pretoria, South Africa. Gather most info for your site is generated is the USA and I feel oblidged to let you know that our line goes way back in South Africa's history and particularly in the establishment of the city of Pretoria.
Our forefather, William (a barrister), was born in Canterbury, Kent, England in 1828 and came to what was still a very unsettled Southern Africa on a hunting expidition in the mid 1800's. Together with two French brothers, Duvereux (I think this was the spelling) they stumbled on part of what was called "the great trek", the famous team leader (called "boer") was a French/Dutch decendant named Pieter Retief who was murdered with one of his sons by the Zulu, a black tribe.
William married Retief's daughter Deborah and they settled in Pretoria. He worked as the first Landrost of Pretoria under Paul Kruger, the Boer leader and today Skinner Street is a landmark here and incidentally the widest street in Pretoria.
The Skinners are now spread far and wide around South Africa. Anyone interested in mailing me with comments or wanting to chat about our local clan may do so at sorgsa@lantic.net
To the SFA good luck, keep up the good work

My name is Bonnie Walker. I have a half brother, John Ryland Skinner. His father's name is Preston Ryland Skinner and his mother's name is Elizabeth Skinner.{my mother} John has a half sister, Dorothy Ann Skinner by his fathers first marriage.
Her mother's first name was Elsie and I am led to believe she was of German desent. Dorothy's mother died when she was a young child and she was raised by her grandmother, Elsie' mother. John and Dorothy's father died when he was two and a half and Dorothy was sixteen. This was the last time we saw Dorothy, and John would very much like to locate her. All we know is that she returned to Oklahoma where her grandmother lived. If you have any information that would help us we would love to hear from you. You may reach us at walkerd@gateway.net or write me at the below address. thank you for any information you might have.

My Great Grandfather was William Henry Skinner born, I think, about the time you are looking for. He was one of several children from the Carolina's whose parents passed away young and the siblings were split up among family members.
William Henry ended up in Athens, Alabama and married. He then moved to Jefferson County, Alabama. My Grandfather was Thomas Julian Skinner and he and William Henry are listed in the Skinner Family page. My father, Thomas Julian Skinner Jr. passed away last year. I am the III and my oldest son is the IV and my grandson is the V. We don't know anything about my family past William Henry. Maybe there is a connection with you. We have located a burial site with a Thomas Julian Skinner in Marengo County, Alabama, but we know of no connection with him. He lived from 1830+- to after the Civil War.
Let me know if you think this is a link for you.
