And also By JAMES EDWIN WILLIAMS posted on genforum:
I researching Manion/Manian too.
Margaret Manian/Manion born abt1808 Mo, married Eli Skaggs b1805-Mo. They lived in Todd County Ky. died-Eli 1852, Margaret 1850. They are listed in the 1850 Todd Co., Ky. Census. Children- Cynthia b-1824, Wesley-b1834, Martha-b1836, Louiza-b1838, James -b1840, Pamela b1842, Mary b1849. Also listed in this census are neighbors, Jane Manion b1787, Jane's son Ambrose b1828 and another neighbor, Reuben Manion b1823,
wife Rebecca b1823, children Mary b 1844, Elizt b1846, and Nancy b1850. I believe that Jane Manion must be the mother of Margaret and Reuben as well as the listed child Ambrose. All except Jane are listed as born in Ky.--Jane NC. Another source says that Eli Skaggs and Margaret Manian were born in Mo. Maybe in the period of migration. When his parents died, James Skaggs who was eight moved to Ballard Co. Ky to live with his cousin John Manion. The other sources say James was really born Feb. 15, 1843 and was the sixth of seven children. James Skaggs was buried in Pleasant Hill Cemetery in Ballard Co., Ky. and is my Great Grandfather so I would very much appreciate any information you can add.
In Juanita Luttrell book, Kentucky Skaggs Records, Todd Co., KY 1850 Census. Eli Skaggs.
Skaggs, Eli 45 famer KY
Skaggs, Cynthia 26 KY
Skaggs, Lavina 14 KY
Skaggs, James 10 KY
Skaggs, Pamila 08 KY
Skaggs, Mary 01 KY
Skaggs, Willey 16 famer KY
Under this census she has the following:
James R. Skaggs born 15 Feb 1843, Todd County, Kentucky is the 6th of 7 children born to Eli and Margaret Manian Skaggs, natives of Missouri. Margaret died 1850 and Eli died 1852. James R. Skaggs went to Ballard County, Kentucky in 1857 and lived with cousin John Manion until his death in 1863. James R. Skaggs then inlisted 1864 Company F. 3rd. KY. (Confederate Cav.) under Captian W. L. Stevenson Holt. 12 Oct 1875 James R. Skaggs married Alice Moss, daughter of Frank and Rebecca Cole, Moss. Alice died May 1876. James R. Skaggs then married Anna Bondurant, daughter of P.H. and Helen Jackson, Bondurant on 23 Dec 1880.
I have written this as it appears in the book. Note that Margaret Manian and John Manion is spelled different. I am not sure where Juanita got this information, maybe from another book on Todd or Ballard Co., KY. I hope this helps. Wanda Sparkman
Again thanks for posting. I hope tis is the final answer to parents and sibs for Cynthia Ann Skaggs. Now to find out who are the parents of Eli Skaggs. Never ending search. What fun!
