Hi Kay: I am the great granddaughter of Beriah Grant Skiff b April 04.1838 Married Elizabeth Jennie Devlin May 1869 New York. I am looking for the same William Skiff you are interested in finding. I have only started in tracing family so can't be of much help but would appreciate hearing about anything you find out about about Beriah or Elizabeth. I was always told the Skiffs were french canadians. All my family are gone so I haven't any records back pass Beriah.
