Family:Benjamin Skillings and Deliverance Unknown (1)

Facts and Events
Marriage[1] Bet. 1713-1717

Author of Source:Descendants of Thomas Skillings, Arlene Ackerman, in an email citing Thomas Shaw Henley, says "He deeded his pew in the First Parish of Falmouth to his son-in-law, Benjamin Trott (York Deeds 33:44)." She says on her website Benjamin Skillings that Lydia married John Trott, Mary married Peter Cooper, and no marriage given for Jeane. But she shows two daughters named Mary, one born almost 20 years after the other children, and this is the one shown marrying Peter Cooper. I have not had a chance to followup. --Jrich 14:04, 9 September 2008 (EDT)
