      If this is our Milo family, then Polly used his name - there is no adult male here.
      Two female children are not accounted for. It's close.
      Perhaps Milo was just away hunting or whatever.

    • These other lines are not proven to be connected to Milo, and very well may be completely independent of each other. However, they all have similar naming patterns, particularly using Milo and Morris, and all traveling to Ohio and some on to Illinois.

    Notes 
    • MYLO SKINNER was born 1789 in New York, and died Bef. 1850 in Greenwood Twp, Christian Co, IL. He married POLLEY KICE. She was born 10 May 1800 in Vermont, and died 29 Oct 1875 in Christian Co, IL.

      Married in New York and had two children there. Moved to Ohio where two more children were born, then came to Illinois between 1837 and 1841 where another child was born.

      He was listed as one of the first early settlers of Greenwood Township, named in the 1918 History of Christian County. Milo took title to 40 acres of land in the NE qtr. of Section 20 in Greenwood Township; but he eventually acquired about 500 acres in the area, most of it in or near Section 17.
      Skinner School, a one room country school, was located on the south edge of Section 17 and presumably named for Milo or one of his sons. (Linda Randles)

      With the information I have, I'm thinking that Mylo Skinner is my husband's g-g-grandfather. His sons were: Edwin R, Joseph N, and Morris F and daughters were: Lucy I and Elvira as listed in the 1850 Illinois Census (Christian County, District 22).

      In Christian County Genealogical Society Qrtly, Vol 3, # 3, it states that Milo visited younger children and family in MO in 1870 and died while there. Have not been able to verify.

      According to the dates and places of birth, I'm almost certain that Joseph N Skinner (b. 5 Nov 1834 in Ohio) must be Jasper N Skinner, married to Julia Ann Busby. They can be found in the 1870 Newton Co, MO census.

      Please let me know if you think Jasper is the same as Joseph. Jasper died in IL in 1902. Would appreciate any information available. Thanks!

      Hi Sherry,

      Here's more on Mylos family , you may have this already. Mylo died In Missouri several years before Polly died in Ill. Edwin who is my line was married to Mary Noble they had five children Ansel was my granddad Emil was my dad. Ansel had onother, Edwin. Edwin came to Montana in 1914, my granddad came to Montana in 1915. If you have a fax number I could send you my whole line. I have a note that says Morris was in civil war, maybe you knew that. Also have other brothers and sisters of Morris.
      Dave
