RE: Link Mary Chamberlain Skinner to her parents Richard and Mary
I'll find her husband Stephen Skinner's son Amasa's will which lists names of his full blood (Amasa's mother was Mary Foote who died about 1785 in CT) and half-siblings which includes my 4th great-grandmother Louisa Mary Skinner Alcott who died in Chenango Co., NY about 1834 after the birth of a child.
Thank you so much for doing all this. I guess I need to learn to link but it would take me half a day since I'm not computer savvy.
I'll make a note to myself to do the will lookup in all my documents which are not filed online. I rely on my husband to do that type of thing and he is swamped with his own projects.

Link Mary Chamberlain Skinner to her parents Richard and Mary
Sandy, just in case I didn't thank you for linking Louisa Skinner Alcott to her father and mother, Stephen Skinner and Mary Chamberlain Skinner, I am thanking you now from the bottom of my heart.

Would it be possible to link Mary Chamberlain Skinner (43371342) to her parents in Jones Hollow Cemetery, Hartford Co., CT?
Father was Richard Chamberlain - 9915102 (Rev. War CT militia and was a POW for several months)
Mother was Mary Dickinson Chamberlain - 9915096

I have the DAR info from their database linking the families together.

Mary D. Chamberlain's father was Captain David Dickinson (buried at Jones Hollow along with his wife Mary Perrin Dickinson). David was a patriot during the Rev. War in that he signed the Oath of Allegiance at the ripe old age of 74. He served for 5 years during the time of the French and Indian War.

Thank you so much! Linda Alcott Maples

Stephen Skinner
Hi Kelly,

Would you please link Louisa Skinner Alcott to Stephen & Mary Chamberlain Skinner? Louisa was their youngest daughter and my 3rd great grandmother. Louisa's Find-a-grave memorial is 74077697

Thanks so much. I do have dates for all but one of Stephen's other children from my grandmother's DAR applications, if you would like to add them. Just leave me a note and I could email to you. ~Ann

RE: Stephen and Mary Skinner
Nice to meet another descendant of Stephen. I descend from Stephen and Mary Chamberlain Skinner's youngest son, Justin Skinner, who moved to Darke County, Ohio in 1836, after the death of his wife Alma Norton. I'm glad that I put the new marker Stephen and Mary's gave in Sep 1994 with the NSDAR marker. I was afraid that the original one might one day disappear.

Thank you for the picture of the headstones and adding Stephen and Mary Chamberlain Skinner to findagrave. They are my 5th great grandparents. In 1994, their original stone was flat on the ground and in 2010 it is nearly covered. I had the new headstone added in Sep 1994 and marked with the NSDAR marker. Their youngest son, Justin Skinner moved to Darke Co, OH in 1836 where he died in 1863.

Hello, regarding the dates in question for birth. I will put out a request as soon as I can to see if we can get a pic. Am sure I got from family papers or old obits. Cant remember now.

Hello Sandy,
Just stopped by to say hi. There are so many friendly, wonderful, and helpful people on this site.
I added the links and information for the Skinner family per your request. I see you added some photos taken in Sherburne, NY. When did you visit? My wife and I were there in Nov. 2008.
Let me offer you a warm welcome to Find A Grave. Good talking with you and thanks for your contributions!
