Hello Skaggs Researchers!
Need your assistance in trying to track down two of my ancestors, whose
families were closely allied with Henry SKAGGS b. 1759. Please keep reading
if you are descended from Henry b. 1759, who I also think of as the Grayson
Co. KY Henry, or know of the surnames WITTEN, THOMAS OR CAIN.
I show Henry SKAGGS as born in Abbeyville S. Carolina, moving to Grayson KY
abt. 1809. It was said that the SKAGGS fled Virginia due to Indian attacks,
down to the Carolinas, then over to Kentucky (with Daniel Boone? seems
everyone's ancestors went to Kentucky with Daniel!). Henry's grandson
Gideon married Catherine CAIN, granddaughter of Patrick CAIN b. abt.1765,
shows as living in Grayson KY census 1810.
The SKAGGS and WITTENS are also closely allied, together in Virginia and
later Grayson Co. Patrick CAIN's grandson Charles CAIN married Jane THOMAS,
granddaughter of Jeremiah WITTEN b. 1749, and Enos THOMAS b. abt. 1756.
Jeremiah's wife was possibly Sally SKAGGS. Jeremiah WITTEN and Henry SKAGGS
both fought in the Battle of Pt. Pleasant, Oct. 10, 1774 near Tazewell VA.
Jeremiah WITTEN shows up in Grayson Co. tax records beginning in 1813. His
son John WITTEN and daughter Keziah WITTEN also married two of Henry SKAGGS
children, Nancy SKAGGS and James SKAGGS. There are also other Henry SKAGGS
and Enos THOMAS descendant marriages.
I am having trouble proving Patrick CAIN and Enos THOMAS backwards or
forwards. I cannot even find their wives names. Here is what I need you to
think about:
We have four men:
Henry SKAGGS b. 1759
Jeremiah WITTEN b. 1749
Patrick CAIN b. 1765
Enos THOMAS b. 1751 or 1756
All living in Grayson Co. KY approx. 1810. At least two near Tazewell
Virginia during Rev. War. Most spending time in the Carolinas where some
children show as born. Many of their descendents marrying. I believe there
has to be a reference to Patrick CAIN or Enos THOMAS somewhere with Henry
SKAGGS information.
I am hoping that somewhere in someone's files or notes they can find a
reference to Patrick CAIN or any of his children that I have not seen yet,
or recognize the surnames of their spouses. He may have been in Nelson Co.
KY from 1792 to 1796. He signed for his daughter Polly's marriage to
Richard STUTEVILLE in Hardin Co. KY in 1808. He is living in Grayson KY
near Martin SKAGGS, William SKAGGS. Henry SKAGGS and James SKAGGS IN 1810
