Buried in the Winchester Cemetery of Clark County, Kentucky, are four members of the Skinner family. John, the father, was born in 1765, in some records in Middlesex County, New Jersey.
Sarah, wife of John Skinner was born October 2, 1775, ten years his junior. I believe they moved to Kentucky about 1800. According to some records they had many children, two of which are buried beside them. This stone is very difficult to read, but Ritchey took several very close photos and I was able to make out the name and dates.
Evidently this was a precious son who traveled to South Carolina – or possibly lived there – and this was a reminder of his life, even though he was probably buried where he died.
Another son who died in his 30s! What a sorrow that must have been. I wish I knew more about this family, but at least there is this record to share with you. Is anyone related to this family?
