Re: William Skelton 1745 Indiana

In Reply to: William Skelton 1745 Indiana by Beverly Hill-Skelton of 1700

No one has found the "for sure" parents of William Skelton of Warrick Co., Ind, the father of Jacob Sr. Ralph and Mary Skelton seem logical since they ar in the right area at the right time and William named a son Ralph & a daughter Mary. That is the evidence that everyone hangs on. Same problem with William's wife Sarah. No one knows her maiden name or date of marriage. Some say she was Sarah Scales but there is no proof forthcoming. Also, in the case of Ralph & Mary Skelton as parents, there is a question as to if their name was Shelton. William's surname is invariably spelled with a "K" as are those of his children and brothers.
I descend (g-g grandson) from Zachariah Skelton, Sr., Jacob's brother. Tell your husband hello from a newly found cousin.
When/why did his Skelton family move from Indiana to W. Va? I have a lot of info on the family if you need more about the Indiana end. They came there from Elbert Co., GA and were in S. Car. prior to GA.
