Horace Skelton 1792-1832
Fanny Harrington Skelton (1792-1832)

Originally Emeline was buried in "God's Acre" Cemetery across from her home in Woodside, California next to an unnamed daughter who died as an infant. There is no record of the un-named daughter's remains being moved.

Rev Samuel Skelton(1592-1634) was the first pastor of the First Church in Salem Massachusetts, the original Puritan Church in America. He arrived in America in 1629. He was the Immigrant Great Grandfather of Emeline Skelton Tripp. He was also my 11th great grandfather.

Her granduncle, Thomas Skelton (1740-1815) may have been one of the "Minutemen" who responded at Lexington and Concord.

Emeline Tripp is a cousin of my great grand-uncle, Anson Burlingame (1820-1870). Burlingame, California was named after Anson Burlingame.

Family Members
