Subject: Re: [LONGHUNTERS] Debunking a Myth - The Real Henry Skaggs!
Date: Sat, 20 Oct 2007 19:17:15 -0400


I am attaching a brief outline of what I've collected thus far on the
family of James Skaggs and wife, Rachel. This only shows them and their
children and grandchildren. I also want to make note, I have added
another child, Aaron Skaggs, to the eleven that are proven in the Moses
Skaggs estate lawsuit. It is NOT YET PROVEN that Aaron is the son of
James & Rachel, but we know that he died much younger than the other 11
proven children and his son Henry Skaggs (1759-1851) was heavily
connected with the other descendants of James and Rachel. I know for a
fact that all of the grandchildren of James and Rachel are not mentioned
in the Moses Skaggs lawsuit so it is possible that one of the sons, who
died young, might have been overlooked as well. There has been much
discussion of this on the Skaggs list. - Jeremy
