Birth: Apr. 30, 1794
New London County
Connecticut, USA
Death: Sep. 5, 1863
Onondaga County
New York, USA

Charles L Skinner removed from Marlborough, CT, to Geneseo, NY, at age 11, with his parents and siblings, in about 1805. US census records suggest that Charles lived in his father's household in Geneseo in 1810 and, with his mother and his older brother, Oliver, in 1820, after his father's death.

From "Onondaga's Centennial" by Dwight H. Bruce (1886): "Charles L. Skinner in company with Joseph Shepard kept a store in the Dodge building [on the line of the canal] after Dodge left it, and in 1831 Skinner built for himself on the site of the Geddes House." And, "C. T. Longstreet carried on a tailoring business in Geddes for about three years, beginning with 1832."

Charles L Skinner married Jane Longstreet, the sister of C.T. Longstreet, in Geddes on April 29, 1835.

The 1840 census lists Charles in Camilus, Onondaga County, but in 1850 he was in Mt. Morris, 8 miles south of Geneseo, as a "wood turner". He was back in Onondaga Village in 1860, working as a mechanic, where he died of consumption in 1863.
