HI Alanda.....This is Elise....I have been trying to reach you via the email address Aobrien@aol.com [ as well as your other one] all to no avail. I do not want to loose contact as we are researching the same Skinner line! The only information I have on Elizabeth Howard [thought to be Capt. Isaac's mother] is that she was born abt. 1726 and her husband was James Truman Skinner. Have you heard anything more about the name change from Lincoln to Skinner by the earliest ancestor Robert and wife Anne Storer?....Hope you are still out there in cyberspace and happy researching!...Elise lbyrd02@snet.net

Subject: Hester Ann Skinner
Date: 29 Dec 1999
From: Jan Stockman <JanetCS@aol.com>
Am looking for information for Hester Ann Skinner who married Joseph Eaton . In 1833 they had a son, Richard James Eaton who was born in Caroline County, Maryland and died in 1921 in Centreville, Maryland (Queen Annes County) . Hester and Joseph were my great great grandparents. I am researching the Eaton line and have reason to believe they are the Welsh line Eatons. There is a strong possibility Jospeh was the son of a minister in Chowan County, North Carolina.
Any information is greatly appreciated.
Thank you.

Hi all.
I'm trying to establish the family connection of John Skinner of Boston, Massachusetts. He married Mary RUST in 1755 in MA. Their daughter, Jane SKINNER, was born 1758 in Boston. John SKINNER was a naval commander in the Revolution. Is he related to the Thomas Skinner who came to Malden MA in 1649?
Happy holidays!

In making my connection with Daniel SKINNER's daughter, Sarah (b. 1775), I noticed a reference # (Reference: 14288 ). Is this number a reference to some document? (Note to Richard: reference numbers are just those assigned by the program. Gregg)
My purpose for the question is to verify, through a document, that John CONKLIN (b. 1779), husband of Sarah SKINNER (b. 1775) is the son of William CONKLIN (b. 1754) and Elizabeth Brink CONKLIN (b. 1758)

From: Deanna Ebergson <deeeberg@uswest.net>
I am looking for a Lou SKINNER, she married a SM (Sam Meads) GRIFFIN on Dec 16, 1880. She was from Georgia. Her father was a Dr. SKINNER. She died December of 1918 and is buried in Whitehouse TX. I would appreciate any information that someone may have. Their children were: Kurt, Noel, Grace, Roy, Idus, Mary, Carl, Lucille. The only information I have on Dr. Skinner is that he may have been murdered? He was to have taken a horse & buggy to a call in the night, when the horse returned it contained a body, we presume that it was Dr. Skinner. It is just family stories so I don't have any conclusive evidence.

From: "Emily Skinner" <mles@speakeasy.org>
I am in search of the ancestry of my ggggggrandfather, Ebenezer SKINNER, b. 1766. I believe he married Mary COOK or CROOK. Their children were Harvey (b. 1803) and Almond (b. ca 1814). I found a reference to Ebenezer in a book about Monroe County, New York, which identified him as a British Loyalist and stated that he lived in Canada part of his life.
My question is, who are Ebenezer's parents? I have heard rumors that he is the son of Benjamin Skinner, son of Joseph Skinner and Martha Kinne. Benjamin apparently did have a son named Ebenezer, possibly born 1766. But none of the records about my Ebenezer that I've found so far mention his parents' names, and none of the records I've found about Benjamin Skinner's son Ebenezer mention his children, so I can't make a definitive connection.
Can anyone help me make a connection? You can see the information I've already collected at

Subject: John G. Skinner (or John J. Skinner), an early pioneer in Mississippi
Date: 21 Nov 1999
From: "Ham Bishop" <totnham@microsped.com>
Dear Skinner Kinsmen:
I am inquiring about a John G. Skinner (or John J. Skinner) who was an early pioneer in Mississippi. He came into the area that is now Oktibbeha County immediately upon the signing of the Treaty of Dancing Rabbit Creek in which the Choctaw Indians ceded their lands to Ms. He was a farmer and politician. Was elected to the first Board of Police, was the second probate judge of the county, and represented Oktibbeha County in the Ms. Legislature 1838-1840. He was known as "the most active man in town."
There was also a Louisa Skinner who married Jesse Merideth in Oktibbeha County in 1871. In the 1870 Ms. Census Oktibbeha County she is listed as 27 years old, and native of Georgia. She is living in the household of Jesse M. whom she married the next year. She had a one year old son named John T. E. (?) Louisa is listed under the name of Elizabeth Morgan, also from Georgia, who was mother of Jesse's first wife, Mary Morgan. Louisa may have been a Morgan, now widow of a Skinner. Jesse Merideth and Louisa Skinner Merideth had four sons, one of whom is the ancestor of my two Merideth sons.
I am writing a Merideth family history and would very much appreciate any information regarding the two above named Skinners, as they have a relation to this Merideth famiily.
Many thanks. I shall look forward to hearing from some of you.

Subject: Searching for the parents of Merzy (Mirza) Skinner, born circa 1795
Date: 10 Nov 1999
From: "Jackie Williamson" <kjwmson@navix.net>
I have never posted a query on the internet, so please be patient with me. I have been searching for the parents of Merzy (Mirza) Skinner who was born circa 1795, possibly in Canada, according to 1850 Franklin Co., VT census records. I am reasonably certain that Merzy married Rachel Lovewell, daughter of Robert and Polly Taplin Lovewell, but have never found a marriage certificate, as yet. Rachel was born March 20, 1795 in Vermont.
Merzy and Rachel had the following children:
Irene Saphronia;
Paulina (my great grandmother);

Hannah and Harris (twins);

Robert; Merzy Jr.;

Mary Ann and

Nathan L.,
all in St. Albans, Franklin Co., VT. They are buried in the St. Albans Bay Cemetery beside Robert and Polly Lovewell. Merzy died October 29, 1868 and Rachel died September 16, 1891, due to old age, 96 yrs., 6 mon. 23 da. I do know that their son, Mirza Jr., was a Civil War veteran and settled in Republic Co., KS and is buried in the Ida Cemetery there, with his family. The town of Munden, Kansas, was founded on part of his homestead. Merzy and Rachel's daughter, Paulina, married Martin Joseph Corliss. Their children: John Anson; Mirza George; Joseph Addison; Mary Lovell (possibly Lovewell); Amy Melissa; Daniel Todd; Norman Lasell; Albert Nathan (my grandfather). Martin Joseph and Paulina Skinner Corliss are also buried in the same cemetery in St. Albans. I have been gathering information on their descendants for years. I want very much to locate Merzy's (Mirza's) parents and hopefully make a connection to other Skinners, which will take me back to the land from whence they came to America.

Hi. Can anyone help me? My gggrandfather was Arthur Skinner.He originated from Durris,Kincardinshire,Scotland but later moved

children moved to live in new zealand in 1890.Unfortunately Arthur lost complete contact with his two brothers left behind in
Scotland.Their names were James and John.Perhaps they married and had many descendents like Arthur did in N.Z. I am trying to

Hello cousin!
I am a descendant of Richard Skinner and Susanna Poulain too. I am seeking info on him as well. I have seen some info at the LDS search site that shows Susanna's parents but nothing about Richard. About all I have been able to determine is that Richard was probably on the Isle of Jersey in the Channel Islands before he came to NJ. What about you? Curious to see what you have.
Yours 'Aye,

From: "Bob Limburg" <rlimburg@dreamscape.com>
My paperwork is packed away at the moment, but, I am sure that your JOHN SKINNER is from the JOSEPH SKINNER line that came from Connecticut. He was killed circa 1760. His son DAVID was the first to raft down the delaware river. DAVID and several of his brothers settled SULLIVAN CO,NY NEWTON,SUSSEX,NJ AND WAYNE CO,PA. I believe that your JOHN is couple of generations down from Joseph, but this line goes back to the 1600's to THOMAS of Malden,Ma.

As far as CALKINS, this line comes from OLIVER CALKINS and this line also goes back to approximately the same time.


Both of these lines are well documented, there is a book about the Calkins/Caulkins family also, several on the Skinners. As well as any of the county histories/atlas. I will however try to get some specific info if I have it. Hope this sparks your interest,

Hello Skinner Clan,
I am trying to find the forebears of Oscar William Skinner, born probably in the 1870s and probably in or near Nottingham, UK. He married Mary Heighton some time around 1900, and had two sons, George William (my father) and Hedley, and one daughter, Eva. He was employed as an railway-engine driver for most of his working life.
If anyone knows of him, they may be interested in a family tree down to several young Australians born in the 1990s.
Who knows, I might find a long-lost or distant cousin out of this.

Seeking information on the parents of Cornelius Skinner b. 1769 in Loudoun Co. Virginia. He married Jane Carr and migrated to Weschester, Clark County Kentucky. There is a possibility that his father is Phineas Skinner s/o Cornelius Skinner Jr. There is a sentence in the familly bible of Phineas Carr Skinner son of Cornelius and Jane Carr (awkwardly written) which states "Phineas Skinner grandson who owned this bible came to Missouri (Platte County) from Clark Co. Kentucky where he was born in 1801." I am hoping that this Phineas Skinner is the grandfather of the Phineas Carr Skinner who owned the bible. This bible was copied in July 15, 1936 by Mrs. John Georgen (wife of the owner of the Bible at the time) for a D.A.R. project. It lists marriages and birth dates of that line of the family. I descend from Azubah Skinner, d/o Cornelius Skinner and Jane Carr. She married Joel Franklin Chiles and migrated to Jackson County, Missouri. I found the copy of the Bible Entries in the Mid-Continental Genealogical Library in Independence, Missouri and would be happy to do look ups or even submit to this site.
