I am also researching the Skuce family as part of my tree. I have a Thomas Skuce married to Elizabeth Gossen who were parents of Jennie (I have no knowledge of her siblings. Jennie married George W. Vallillee b. 1867. They had 1 daughter Bella Mae Vallillee who is my paternal grandmother. I have touched base via the internet with Bella's much younger half brother George W. Vallillee who is still living. I hope I have now made the acquaintance of some of my Skuce "cousins"
