Hello Mr. Hart, I'm Darwin Davis, interested in the Skinner family in Preble Co., OH. Specifically, I read that Mary "Polly" Skinner, matriarch of this Dixon clan and first wife of John Dixon, had a brother, Benjamin Skinner, who was a Baptist minister in the area at the time. I'm interested in knowing if you know anything about the background of this Skinner family, who apparently came to OH from NC. My own ancestor, Joshua Skinner (b. NC 1801) may well have been a younger brother of Mary "Polly" Skinner, or a nephew. He married Cordelia Carter from Preble Co., and they named their second son Miles Dixon Skinner. Benjamin Skinner married (as minister) a brother of Cordelia Carter Skinner, so I know they all were around the same area in Preble Co.1810-1830 (and later Butler Co.). Please let me know if you have any information on the Skinner family, or can refer me to any Preble Co. OH sources who might help me. I would be ever so grateful. Darwin Davis

To: "David G. Stuart" No, I do not know of a picture of John Wesley Dixon or his brother, George Milton Dixon. William D. Dixon's middle name according to my grandfather, Paul R. Dixon, was Demoss. For William D. Dixon's parents, I did not have the C. in John C. Dixon and all I had for Mary Skinner was Polly Skinner. John Dixon was married three times. It is his third wife that is buried at Elmwood Cemetery. Polly Skinner d. c.1829, probably in Preble Co, OH as John married second on 14 Sept 1830.I know of four children for John and Polly (Mary) Dixon: William D. Dixon, Miles S. Dixon, James Clay "Squire" Dixon and George W. Dixon. There were probably more children. A John Dixon and a Samuel Dixon arepossibly two of their children. He also had children by his other two wives.
 
John Dixon was b. in VA, 16 Dec 1788, and died in Preble County, OH, 24 Aug 1851.

Saw your treatise on the John Dixon family on WorldConnect. I am intereted in the Samuel Dixon whom you say might belong to this family. I have this week been "chasing" Samuel:
 
1852 marries Hannah Franklin Burden in Peoria Co IL
1860 in Peoria Co IL
1870 in Adams Co IL
1880 in Riley Co KS while his wife Hannah F. is (not too far away) in Jefferson Co NE.
 
It is their daughter Almeda in whom I am interested. She married James Wood, an Englishman probably in KS or NE. In 1880 she and James are in Davis Co KS (which in 1888 became Geary Co KS), in 1886 she married Hugh McElroy in Gregg Co TX and in 1900 she is in Greene Co AR. Soon thereafter she died in a mental institution in Pulaski AR.

Hi my name is Roseann (Sherman) May I am the niece of Donald , Hubert and Madelyn. My fathers name was Marshall, he was from Freds second marriage . I know Madelyn died after a fall down some stairs while she was pregant with her son Lester Dilkey Jr., her husband's aunt raised him. Jr. contacted the family when he was in the air force when I was a kid. I remember him and his aunt. I would sure like to hear from him. I don't know much about Donald . he was the black sheep I guess. I have a picture of him taken a Palastides Park NY in his bathing suit in 1927. I sure would like to know more about him.
 
Hubert had two children Nellie Marie , and Hubert Leon. My dear cousin Nelly has passed on March 6, 2000 , date of birth was March 8, 1936. Hubert Jr or Sonny as we call him lives in Pontiac, Ill. He was born on May 9, 1 937. I have been trying to find some history on our family, but it was difficult not knowing where or when grandpa was born .
