I have seen claims that Paul Skidmore was Jefferson's "architect" while others refer to him as only a friend with a mutual interest in architecture. Does anyone know more about this relationship?
Also -- Paul Skidmore designed the Speed family home (Farmington)in Louisville KY in 1815. Can anyone confirm this to be the same Paul Skidmore? Seems the only reasonable conclusion given his wife's ties to the Speed family and Paul's apparant ties to Jefferson.
