Is anyone here a descendant of James D. and Emily Crossland SKELTON?
James David SKELTON, b. 1837, AL; son of William Hiram SKELTON and Mary Polly YOUNG; died between 1900 and 1910, Dunklin Co., MO.
Emily CROSSLAND, b. ca. 1841, AL; daughter of Meredith Taylor CROSSLAND and Lucinda CLEVELAND; died 10 June 1914, Dunklin Co., MO.
James and Emily were married in Alabama ca. 1865-1866. I have not seen the marriage record, but have read that one exists.
Their children (that I know of) with approximate year of birth (all born in MS):
- Nancy Alimore, b. ca. 1868
- Margaret, b. ca. 1870
- John David, b. 14 Feb 1873*
- Mary Elizabeth ("Dora"), b. ? Dec 1875
- William Elmer, b. ca. 1878
- Dozier E., b. ca. 1880
- Ada Lawson, b. 23 Jul 1883
* Note - not sure of source of this date; it is something in my un-sourced notes.
James and Emily moved from MS to MO after 1883, but don't know when. They are listed in Dunklin Co, MO on 1900 US Census.
I believe that most, if not all, of James and Emily's children eventually moved to AR.
