My ancestor Thomas Skaggs, born about 1823 in Kentucky, was living in Newton Co., MO in 1850. Several other Scaggs/Skaggs families were living in Newton Co. and McDonald Co. In Newton Co. were Benjamin Skaggs, 33, and his family, and Meshack Skaggs, 35, and his family, and Jane Skaggs, 58, and her family. In McDonald Co. were James Scaggs, 40, with his family, and Jacob Scaggs, 33, with his family. All of these individuals were born in KY. I am trying to find a connection with these individuals and my ancestor Thomas Skaggs. Can anyone help?
