He married Eunice Tainter on Aug 4,1737 at Colchester,CT. She was born Apr 13,1713, the daughter of Michael Tainter and Eunice Foote Tainter.

NOTE: Several sons moved to Shelburne,MA after their father's death, and, of these, Shelburne Vital Records specifically says Aaron Jr moved there on May 8,1773. Aaron Jr remained in Shelburne, and died there in 1826. East Shelburne Cemetery was originally called "Skinner Cemetery". It is probable that their mother Eunice went to Shelburne with them, or perhaps a bit later. This deed extract is found, from Fernald's John Skinner of Hartford: "On Sep 25, 1779, Eunice Skinner of Shelburne, Mass, for 150, [sold] to Joseph Isham, Junr & Isham 2nd, 36 acres of land in Colchester......(vol. 10, p. 228)." So it is probable his wife Eunice is buried in Shelburne, perhaps at Skinner Cemetery, perhaps with no stone.

Children: Eunice Skinner Matson, Aaron Skinner Jr(husband of Mehitable Worthington Skinner), David Skinner, Mary Skinner, Charles Skinner, Jared Skinner, Lydia Skinner Nash, Lovina Skinner Phelps, Eli Skinner, and Amasa Skinner.
