"Dr. Henry Skinner.

At Eddyville, Ky. June 23d, of pulmonary complaint, (contracted on the Canadian frontiers,) Dr. Henry Skinner, late a surgeon in the army of the United States, in his 34th year of his age. His loss is much regretted by his friends and acquaintances; not only on account of his skill and usefulness as a medical character, but on account of his patriotism, his urbanity, and many virtues. He was the companion of the gallant Groghan in the memorable defense of Fort Stevenson, at Lower Sandusky. He left a disconsolate widow and two children, and a host of relatives and friends, to mourn his early death.

Daily National Intelligencer,
31 July 1819.

"Dr Skinner was a native of Calvert county, in Maryland, eldest son of the late Frederick Skinner, and eldest brother of the Post Master of Baltimore. He studied physic under the late Dr. John Crawford, and it is no small compliment to say, what may be said with truth, that in a spirit of universal philanthropy and benevolence of heart, he resembled his worthy preceptor. He maintained through life a course of unspotted honor and integrity; and the writer of this, who knew him thoroughly, takes consolation from the reflection, that he died with that fearless composure and dignity, which may be expected from those, who, in their last hour, feel that their part, whether humble or exalted, has been well performed, and that they can be reproached with nothing which can dishonor their name, their friends, or their country."
