Elizabeth was born about 1806.[1]

She married Henry Skinner in 1828[2] and they had at least 9 children:

  • John, 1829 in Ohio[1]
  • Lydia, 1831 in Ohio[1]
  • Mary, 1833 in Ohio[1]
  • Robert, 1835 in Ohio[1]
  • Alva, 1837 in Ohio[1]
  • Harriet, 1839 in Ohio[1]
  • Jesse, 1843 in Iowa[1]
  • Nancy, 1845 in Iowa[1]
  • George, 1848 in Iowa[1]

Research Notes

Henry remarried in 1857, and so Elizabeth is assumed to have died between 1850 and 1857 in most family trees. I question that because none of her kids show up in Henry's household in 1860. Some trees also have a daughter, Minnie, born in 1852 in Illinois.
