First Generation

1. James A1 Skinner(4940) was born in Medina Co, Ohio October 6, 1855. James died June 13, 1894 at 38 years of age.

He married Elizabeth H Godown Montgomery Co, Illinois, April 9, 1874. Elizabeth was born in Medina Co, Ohio February 19, 1840. Elizabeth(4941) was the daughter of John Evan Godown and Fanny Opdyke Hoagland. In the 1880 census Sycamore, Montgomery Co, Kansas page 337, Jimmy? Skinner (age 45) is recorded with Elizabeth (age 40), Stacy ? (age 3) and Jerrie Godown (age 30). Jim and Elizabeth were born in Ohio, Stacy in Illinois and Jerrie in NJ. I have to assume that Jerrie? Godown is a relation and probably a nephew or cousin. Do not think he is a brother because of the census information.

James A Skinner and Elizabeth H Godown had the following children:

child 2 i. Stacy G2 Skinner(4942) was born Illinois March 15, 1877. Stacy died August 5, 1893 at 16 years of age.

Burial at Forest Lawn Memorial Park, Glendale, Los Angeles Co, California She is found in the California Death index and has her mothers maiden name as Skinner but has the last name of Godown.
