children: Charlotte or Charlotta b. abt 1817 Ester b. abt 1819 Seeley b. abt 1821 Halsey b. abt 1823 David Phebe Allen (or Allan) b. abt 1829 Hettie
Anyone with any information please post!
Allen (or Alan) born abt. 1829 d. 3/15/1861 married Susan E. Paugh born 3/2/1834 d. 4/4/1908
Children: Hettie b. 2/14/1853 d. 1929 George b. 6/15/1854 David b. 12/28/1858 Jason T. (name?) b. 1859 or 1860 d. 3/1862 Isaac b. 4/24/1861 d. (?)
Notes:Allen Skellenger was murdered in Stokes State Forest by John Cruver.Susan remarried Harrison Ayers and had five more children (surname Ayers).Susan and Harrison are buried in Layton Cemetery.The burial place of Allen is unknown.The story of Allen's death is in the Snells History of Sussex County."Hettie" died unmarried and is also buried in Layton Cemetery, Layton, New Jersey.I have a death certificate for a child who was 3 years old and was the son of "Allan Skellinger".this child died of diptheria.Census records for 1860 show a son "Jason T. Skellenger"who was 4 months old at the time.I also have a son Isaac, but I am not sure where I got that information.I have been told that "Isaac Skellenger", if that is his name, moved to Port Jervis, NY.Will have to check the 1870 census records for sandyston.
Now about the other Skellenger children:
