His first Patriot ancestor is Daniel SKINNER, born 22 SEP 1789 in New Jersey. Private Skinner served with PA (Pennsylvania), NY (New York) and NJ (New Jersey). He was pensioned, and died in 1846. His wife, the former Mary SMITH survived him.
Daniel and Mary are both buried in Eldred Cemetery, located near Lumberland, Sullivan County, New York
Junior asked if I have a gene-buddy near the cemetery, who could locate Daniel’s gravestone and snap a picture. I told him that I would post and see what happens; but looking at some long-shot photos, I’m not sure anyone can find anything in there!
I wrote a Sunday Obituary for Daniel, last month; so, if the picture looks familiar, it is 🙂
Oh, we have another problem: How do you get copies of previous applicants’ submissions? The DAR ladies that have applied previously are all dead
And I promised to help him with all five papers? Oh, boy.
