Skiff Family Genealogy Forum
I have information from the Julius Skiff family bible if anyone is interested. He married Julia Botsford (b. 11-24-1785) on 10-5-1807. Julius was born in Conn., possibly Tolland or Kent and moved to Ohio probably in the early 1800's. He was the son of Nathan Skiff, Jr. (b. 8-22-1751, Tolland, Ct.) and Abigail Fuller (b. 10-19-1754, Newton, Mass.)
Julius' grandfather was Nathan Skiff (b. 3-7-1718) who married Thankful Eaton. They settled Skiff Mt., Conn. His great grandfather was Stephan Skiff (b. 5-26-1693) who married Elizabeth Hatch of Tolland, Ct. His great-great grandfather was Nathan Skiff of Chilmark, Mass., (b. 5-16-1658) who married Hephzibah Codman.
The family founder in America was James Skiff who came from England about 1636 to Saugus, Mass. (now Lynn) and later was one of the proprietors of Sandwich, Mass.
