Carl and Pam thank you for the help with the Skiles/Alkire info and copy of divorce. I believe this Susan was the widow of a Wm Skiles d 1833 and she was the dau of David Stookey neighbor of Sarah and John Alkire. I still do not know the relation of Wm and Sarah. It seems Susan's sister Elizabeth and her husband Samuel Lane were the neighbors of John and Sarah Alkire before David Stookey. Susan had one son about this time before she married Wm Skiles. He was named after Susan's father, David Stookey. I cannot find his father and it is interesting he named his first son John !?
