James Hare Skiles
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Aug., 1845
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Feb. 4, 1915
Washington County
Pennsylvania, USA

I was told by a relative that James and Lydia Skiles were buried at Center Church, but that the stones are now missing. She heard that another relative once saw their gravestones in a trash pile, but he did not recover them and they are now lost! There is a space next to the graves of James P. and Martha (Hair) Skiles, his parents, where it might be possible for two unmarked graves to be.

I have not seen James H. Skiles' death certificate, but his wife, Lydia (Lafferty) Skiles' death certificate lists her place of internment as Center Presbyterian Cemetery. He died sometime between 1915 and 1920.
